Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
(e) The Compensation Committee and the Board of Directors of Kellogg Company (the “Company”) reduced the amount of severance payments which the Company’s named executive officers (“NEOs”) would receive if they are terminated following a change in control. Under these circumstances, each NEO would now receive two times base salary and annual incentive award (and two years of related benefits such as healthcare). Previously, the NEOs would have received three times base and annual bonus (and three years of related benefits). In addition, technical changes were made to the plan consistent with the regulations issued by the Internal Revenue Service with respect to Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code. The form of amendment to effect these changes is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto, and the description contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms of the amendment.
In addition, John Bryant, the Company’s Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, agreed to reduce certain benefits he would have received in the event of his termination from the Company. Mr. Bryant’s retention agreement provided that if he were terminated by the Company without cause or were to leave the Company for good reason prior to his retirement date, he would receive pension benefits under these plans as if he had reached his earliest retirement age. In order to make benefits more consistent among the NEOs, Mr. Bryant agreed to give up this benefit. The form of amendment to effect this change is filed as Exhibit 10.2 hereto, and the description contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms of the amendment.
Finally, in order to enhance the retention and continuity of the senior operating team that was announced earlier in the year, restricted shares were granted under the Kellogg Company 2003 Long Term Incentive Plan to John Bryant (35,000 shares), Brad Davidson (25,000 shares), and Paul Norman (15,000 shares). These restricted shares vest after three years. The form of restricted stock grant award, which includes non-compete, non-solicitation, release of claims and other restrictive covenants, is filed as Exhibit 10.3 hereto, and the description contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms of the agreement.
