Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
     On October 18, 2006, the Board of Directors of Matrixx Initiatives, Inc. (the “Company”) approved certain amendments to the Company’s employment agreement with its Chief Executive Officer, Carl Johnson (the “Employment Agreement”). The principal amendment to the Employment Agreement provides for the transfer and assignment of Mr. Johnson’s life insurance policy from the Company to Mr. Johnson upon the occurrence of a: (1) termination of employment by the Company or Mr. Johnson for any reason after December 31, 2008; (2) termination of employment as a result of “Total Disability”; (3) termination of employment by the Company without “Cause” on or prior to December 31, 2008; (4) termination of employment by Mr. Johnson with “Good Reason” on or prior to December 31, 2008; or (5) notice of the Company’s election not to renew the Employment Agreement, as permitted therein (as the terms “Total Disability,” “Cause,” and “Good Reason” are defined in the Employment Agreement). Additionally, upon the occurrence of the events specified above, the Company agrees to pay to Mr. Johnson an amount equal to the total presumed federal and state taxes, calculated in the manner set forth in the Employment Agreement, that could be imposed with respect to the income tax payable upon the transfer and assignment of the policy. In addition, the definition of “Good Reason” was amended to add the situation in which Mr. Johnson’s function, duties, and/or responsibilities are significantly reduced so as to cause his position with the Company to become of materially less dignity, responsibility and/or importance than those associated with his present functions, duties and/or responsibilities. The other amendments to the Employment Agreement are intended to address certain issues arising from Internal Revenue Code Section 409A.
     On October 18, 2006, the Company’s Board of Directors also approved an agreement with its Chief Financial Officer, William Hemelt (the “Agreement”). Similar to the amendments made to Mr. Johnson’s Employment Agreement described above, the Agreement provides for the transfer and assignment of Mr. Hemelt’s life insurance policy from the Company to Mr. Hemelt upon the occurrence of a: (1) termination of employment by the Company or Mr. Hemelt for any reason after March 31, 2007; (2) termination of employment as a result of “Total Disability”; (3) termination of employment by the Company without “Cause” on or prior to March 31, 2007; or (4) termination of employment by Mr. Hemelt with “Good Reason” on or prior to March 31, 2007 (as the terms “Total Disability,” “Cause,” and “Good Reason” are defined in the Agreement, and are substantially the same as in Mr. Johnson’s Employment Agreement). Furthermore, upon the occurrence of the events specified above, the Company agrees to pay to Mr. Hemelt an amount equal to the total presumed federal and state taxes, calculated in the manner set forth in the Agreement, that could be imposed with respect to the income tax payable upon the transfer and assignment of the policy.
     On October 18, 2006, the Board of Directors also approved an adjustment to the Company’s director compensation policy. Effective January 1, 2007, the annual stock component of the compensation of the Company’s non-employee directors will consist of a number of shares of restricted stock, issued under the Matrixx Initiatives, Inc. 2001 Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), equal to $75,000 divided by the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the NASDAQ Stock Market on the first business day of each calendar year, rounded up to the nearest share, with 50% of such restricted stock to vest on the first anniversary of each grant and 50% of such restricted stock to vest on the second anniversary of such grant. The directors must be serving on the Board of Directors on the date of vesting in order for the restricted stock to vest; however, the vesting of the restricted stock is accelerated upon the first to occur of a “Change of Control,” or the death, “Disability,” or mandatory retirement of the director (as “Change in Control” is defined in the form of Change of Control Agreement filed with the Securities Exchange Commission on March 13, 2006 as Exhibit 10.12 to the Company’s 2005 Form 10-K, and as “Disability is defined in the Plan).

The amendment to the Restricted Stock Program Agreements provides for the accelerated vesting of the restricted shares upon each director’s respective date of mandatory retirement. Pursuant to the Company’s Corporate Governance Principles, Mr. Walsh must retire immediately prior to the Company’s 2007 Annual Meeting of Shareholders and Mr. Faber must retire immediately prior to the Company’s 2008 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.
