Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangement of Certain Officers.
(e) On June 12, 2012, MGM Resorts International, a Delaware corporation (the Company), adopted a Change of Control Policy for Executive Officers (the Change of Control Policy). The Change of Control Policy provides a uniform severance policy for terminations by us without good cause, or by an executive officer with good cause, following a change of control, as defined in the Change of Control Policy (a Qualifying Termination). None of the Companys named executive officers is currently a participant under the Change of Control Policy. However, the Company expects that the Change of Control Policy will eventually be the only source of change of control benefits for the Companys named executive officers as the employment agreements with them expire and are replaced with new agreements. Alternatively, the Company may offer named executive officers the opportunity to become covered under the Change of Control Policy in replacement of their current employment agreement provisions. The executive officers to be covered by the Change of Control Policy will be determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors from time to time. The benefits available under the Change of Control Policy to a covered executive officer in connection with a Qualifying Termination are as follows, provided that the covered executive officer delivers to the Company and does not revoke a general release in a form prescribed by the Company:
· CEO: 2.0 times the sum of base salary and target bonus (subject to a $10 million cap) and accelerated vesting of equity awards (with up to a 12-month continued exercise period for stock appreciation rights following termination), plus a lump sum payment equal in value to 24 months of continued health and insurance benefits.
· Other covered executive officers: 2.0 times the sum of base salary and target bonus (subject to a $4 million cap) and accelerated vesting of equity awards (with up to a 12-month continued exercise period for stock appreciation rights following termination), plus a lump sum payment equal in value to 24 months of continued health and insurance benefits.
The foregoing description of the Change of Control Policy is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Change of Control Policy, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto.
