Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On May 24, 2017, United Continental Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) held its 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”). At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s stockholders approved the United Continental Holdings, Inc. 2017 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “2017 Plan”), which had been previously approved by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), subject to stockholder approval. The 2017 Plan will replace the United Continental Holdings, Inc. 2008 Incentive Compensation Plan.

The following paragraphs provide a summary of certain terms of the 2017 Plan. The 2017 Plan is set forth in its entirety as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

The purpose of the 2017 Plan is to promote the interests of the Company and its stockholders by: (i) aligning the interests of the Company’s stockholders and award recipients by increasing the proprietary interest of such recipients in the Company’s growth and success; (ii) providing opportunities to link compensation of award recipients to the Company’s short-term and/or long-term performance; and (iii) attracting, retaining and rewarding officers and employees (including prospective officers and employees) through compensation opportunities designed to motivate such persons to act in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.

Under the 2017 Plan, the Company may grant: (i) non-qualified stock options; (ii) “incentive stock options” (within the meaning of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code); (iii) stock appreciation rights (“SARs”); (iv) restricted shares; (v) restricted share units; (vi) performance compensation awards; (vii) performance units; (viii) cash incentive awards; and (ix) other equity-based or equity-related awards. Subject to the terms and conditions of the 2017 Plan, the number of shares authorized for awards under the 2017 Plan is 10,000,000.
