(c) On June 7, 2017, The New York Times Company (the “Company”) announced that it has promoted Meredith Kopit Levien to the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, effective immediately. Ms. Kopit Levien, 46, has served as Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer of the Company since April 2015. She joined the Company in August 2013 as Executive Vice President of Advertising, having previously served as Chief Revenue Officer of Forbes Media LLC from 2011 to 2013.

A copy of the Company’s press release dated June 7, 2017, announcing Ms. Kopit Levien’s promotion, is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.

In light of her increased duties and responsibilities as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors approved increases in Ms. Kopit Levien’s compensation. The Committee set Ms. Kopit Levien’s annual base salary at $750,000, effective June 7, 2017, and set her targeted 2017 annual incentive compensation at 100% of base salary and total targeted value of her 2017-2019 long-term performance awards at 133% of base salary.
