(b) On April 19, 2016, each of Henry L. Meyer III, the Non-Executive Chairman of the board of directors (the Board) of United Continental Holdings, Inc. (the Company), John H. Walker and Charles A. Yamarone notified the Company that he intends to retire from the Board at the end of his current term and will, therefore, not stand for re-election to the Board at the Companys 2016 annual meeting of stockholders. Each of Messrs. Meyer, Walker and Yamarone advised the Company that his decision to retire was not due to any disagreement with the Company.
(e) On April 19, 2016, the Company and United Airlines, Inc. (collectively, the Companies) entered into an Amendment to Employment Agreement (the Amendment) with Oscar Munoz, the Companies President and Chief Executive Officer, amending his Employment Agreement with the Companies dated December 31, 2015. The Amendment, which was initiated by Mr. Munoz, provides, among other things, that it is the Companys expectation that Mr. Munoz will be appointed Chairman of the Board at the Companys 2018 annual meeting of stockholders, and the Amendment modifies the definition of Good Reason such that the appointment of Robert A. Milton as Non-Executive Chairman of the Board would not constitute Good Reason.
The foregoing summary description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.
ITEM 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
