Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On December 15, 2009, the Board of Directors of LNB Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) approved amendments to (1) the Company’s 2006 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2006 Stock Incentive Plan”), (2) the Company’s Stock Appreciation Rights Plan (the “Stock Appreciation Rights Plan”) and (3) the Employment Agreement between the Company and Daniel E. Klimas, as amended (the “Employment Agreement”). The 2006 Stock Incentive Plan, the Stock Appreciation Rights Plan and the Employment Agreement were each amended in order to comply with the terms of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, as amended by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and the interim final rule promulgated pursuant to such statutes and any additional rules, regulations or guidelines hereafter issued with respect to the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Capital Purchase Program, and each provide that such plan or agreement will be further interpreted or reformed to so comply. The amendments to the 2006 Stock Incentive Plan, the Stock Appreciation Rights Plan and the Employment Agreement each also provide for the recovery by the Company of any applicable award or payment under such plan or agreement if it is later determined that the award or payment is based on financial statements or other performance metrics that are later determined to be materially inaccurate. In addition to the foregoing, certain provisions of the 2006 Stock Incentive Plan and the Stock Appreciation Rights Plan were revised to clarify compliance with the requirements of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
The restated 2006 Stock Incentive Plan, the restated Stock Appreciation Rights Plan and the amendment to the Employment Agreement are included as Exhibit 10.1, Exhibit 10.2 and Exhibit 10.3, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02. The foregoing summary of certain provisions of these documents is qualified in its entirety by reference thereto.
