Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement
On December 20, 2011, Michael L. Campbell resigned from his position as Executive Chairman of Regal Entertainment Group (the Company), effective December 28, 2011. Mr. Campbell will continue to serve as a member of the Board of Directors of the Company (the Board) and will transition to a non-executive role as Chairman of the Board of the Company. In connection with his resignation, Mr. Campbell and the Company terminated that Amended and Restated Executive Employment Agreement, dated May 5, 2009, by and between the Company and Mr. Campbell, and entered into a Separation and General Release Agreement, dated December 20, 2011 (the Agreement), as described below and attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto.
Under the Agreement, the Company will pay Mr. Campbell his base salary through December 28, 2011 and his annual bonus for fiscal 2011 in the amount of $800,000. In exchange for his continuing service as Chairman of the Board, the Company will also pay Mr. Campbell a $100,000 annual cash retainer and make annual grants to him of restricted shares of Class A common stock of the Company having, at the time of grant, a fair market value of $200,000. In addition, Mr. Campbells currently unvested equity awards, comprised of 122,916 unvested restricted shares and 169,682 unvested performance shares, will remain outstanding. Mr. Campbell will be considered in service for purposes of vesting in these equity awards as long as he continues to be a member of the Board. If Mr. Campbells service on the Board terminates other than due to his voluntary resignation from the Board or his declining to be nominated for an additional term, then his unvested restricted shares will become fully vested and his unvested performance shares will remain outstanding and will vest to the extent that the as-adjusted EBITDA targets applicable to such performance shares are achieved.
The above summary of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
