(e) On December 12, 2013, The New York Times Company (the Company) amended and restated The New York Times Company Savings Restoration Plan (the Restoration Plan) and The New York Times Company Supplemental Executive Savings Plan (the SESP, and together with the Restoration Plan, the Amended Plans). Each of the Amended Plans is an unfunded supplemental defined contribution plan, and the amendments have been adopted in connection with amendments to the Companys Supplemental Retirement and Investment Plan (the 401(k) Plan). Each of the Companys named executive officers participates in the Amended Plans.
The Restoration Plan provides employees that portion of the Companys annual employer contribution to the 401(k) Plan that cannot be provided generally as a result of Internal Revenue Code limits on includible compensation. The Restoration Plan has been amended to increase accruals to 6% of the participants compensation in excess of such Internal Revenue Code limitations.
Under the SESP, a participants account was formerly credited annually with contributions as calculated in accordance with the formulas set forth in the SESP. The amendments to the SESP discontinue all accruals for plan years commencing on and after January 1, 2014, other than interest which continues to accrue after January 1, 2014 on participants December 31, 2013 balances.
The foregoing descriptions of the Amended Plans do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the forms of Amended Plans, which have been filed with this report as exhibits and are incorporated by reference herein.
