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

Eduardo Castro-Wright, age 55, current vice chairman of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (the “company”), has been appointed president and chief executive officer, global.com and global sourcing of the company and will be transitioning through August 1, 2010. Mr. Castro-Wright will continue to serve as vice chairman and report to the company’s president and chief executive officer. Prior to this appointment, Mr. Castro-Wright served as vice chairman of the company, with primary responsibility for Walmart U.S. and the company’s global procurement operation since November 2008. Previously, Mr. Castro-Wright served as executive vice president, president and chief executive officer of Walmart U.S. from September 2005 to November 2008. From February 2005 to September 2005, he served as executive vice president and chief operating officer, Walmart U.S. Prior to joining Walmart U.S., Mr. Castro-Wright served as president and chief executive officer of Wal-Mart de Mexico beginning in December 2002.

William S. Simon, age 50, an executive vice president of the company, has been appointed president and chief executive officer, Walmart U.S., effective immediately. Mr. Simon, as an executive vice president of the company, will report to the company’s president and chief executive officer in his new position. Prior to this appointment, Mr. Simon served as executive vice president and chief operating officer, Walmart U.S. since April 2007. Mr. Simon joined the company in March 2006 as executive vice president of professional services and new business development for the company’s Walmart U.S. division. Previously, Mr. Simon served as senior vice president of global business development for Brinker International, an owner, operator and franchisor of restaurants, from February 2005 to March 2006. From May 2003 to February 2005, Mr. Simon served as secretary of the Florida Department of Management Services, appointed by then-Governor Jeb Bush where he was responsible for the state’s operations and administrative functions, including health care benefits, human resources, the Florida retirement system and facilities management. Mr. Simon is also a retired officer from the U.S. Navy and Navy Reserves after 25 years of service.

The company entered into a post-termination agreement and covenant not to compete with Mr. Castro-Wright in January 2010, and with Mr. Simon in March 2010 (the “Noncompete Agreement(s)”). The Noncompete Agreements are substantially similar to the form of post-termination agreement and covenant not to compete that is attached as Exhibit 10(p) to the company’s Form 10-K filed on March 30, 2010. The Noncompete Agreements prohibit Mr. Castro-Wright and Mr. Simon, for a period of two years following termination of employment with the company for any reason, from participating in a business that competes with the company and from soliciting the company’s associates for employment. The Noncompete Agreements also provide that, if Mr. Castro-Wright or Mr. Simon is terminated from the company for any reason, other than for a violation of the company’s policies, the company will continue to pay the terminated officer’s base salary for two years following termination of employment. As consideration for executing the Noncompete Agreement, Mr. Castro-Wright received a grant of 37,016 shares of performance-based restricted stock. As consideration for executing the Noncompete Agreement, Mr. Simon received a grant of 35,772 shares of restricted stock.

The following disclosure is provided under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K: during a portion of the fiscal year ended January 31, 2010 (“fiscal 2010”), Mauricio Castro-Wright, the brother of Mr. Castro-Wright, served as a format manager at Distribución y Servicio D&S S.A., the company’s Chilean subsidiary. For fiscal 2010, the company paid Mauricio Castro-Wright a salary of $196,943, other benefits having a value of approximately $291,049 (including payments related to his expatriate assignment of $271,998, insurance premiums of $9,848, and vacation pay of $9,203), and a bonus of $197,582. For Mauricio Castro-Wright’s performance in fiscal 2010, he also received a grant of 691 restricted stock rights. In connection with the termination of Mauricio Castro-Wright’s employment with the company as of December 14, 2009, the company made a one-time severance payment of $402,214 to him.
