Change in Control Agreements

On March 14, 2012, Tractor Supply Company (the “Company”) and each of Gregory A. Sandfort, Anthony F. Crudele and Kimberly D. Vella entered into an Amended and Restated Change in Control Agreement (the “Change in Control Agreement”). The Change in Control Agreement replaces the previous change in control agreement previously entered into by the Company and Mr. Sandfort, Mr. Crudele and Ms. Vella. The new Change in Control Agreement removed a gross-up for any excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code (the "Code") upon payments under the Change in Control Agreement. The amendments to the Change in Control Agreement also provide that in the event an amount to be paid to Mr. Sandfort, Mr. Crudele or Ms. Vella is considered a “parachute payment” pursuant to Section 280G of the Code, then such payment will be reduced to the largest amount that would result in no portion of the payment being subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code, so long as such reduced amount is greater than the after-tax amount Mr. Sandfort, Mr. Crudele or Ms. Vella would have received had the amount not been so reduced.
 
The amended agreements also include the following changes from the prior agreements:
  • extension of the term of the agreement to February 28, 2015;
  • increase the noncompetition period to 18 months;
  • clarify that severance payments exclude the target annual bonus under the Company's long-term cash plan;
  • cap outplacement services at $40,000; and
  • amend the change in control definition so that a change of control is deemed to occur upon (i) any person acquiring ownership of the securities of the Company representing more than 35% of the combined voting power of the Company; or (ii) any change in the majority of the Board of Directors during any 12 month period during the term; or (iii) consummation of a reorganization, merger or consolidation of the Company whereby 50% or more of the combined voting power of the then outstanding shares of the Company changes; or (iv) a sale or disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company (unless such sales do not result in a change in the proportional ownership existing immediately prior to such sale or disposition).
The foregoing description of the Amended and Restated Change in Control Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amended and Restated Change in Control Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.

On March 14, 2012, Tractor Supply Company (the “Company”) and Benjamin F. Parrish, Jr. entered into a Change in Control Agreement that is substantially the same as the Amended and Restated Change in Control Agreement discussed above. The Change in Control Agreement expires on February 28, 2015.

The foregoing description of the Change in Control Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Change in Control Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2.
