The Board also appointed Mr. Ciulla to serve on the board of directors of Webster Bank, effective immediately. Mr. Savage will remain a director of Webster Bank. There are no arrangements or understandings pursuant to which Mr. Ciulla or Mr. Savage were appointed to their respective positions and there are no related party transactions between the Company and Mr. Ciulla or Mr. Savage.

Amendment to the Supplemental Retirement Plan for Employees of Webster Bank

On October 27, 2015, the Compensation Committee of the Board approved and adopted an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Webster Bank Supplemental Defined Benefit Plan for Executive Officers (the “SERP”), which Amendment shall become effective as of October 27, 2016 in accordance with Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. The SERP is a frozen non-qualified supplemental defined benefit plan for certain executive officers of Webster Bank who were participants in the Webster Bank Pension Plan, including the CEO and certain other named executive officers of the Company.

Under the SERP as in effect without regard to the Amendment, upon a participant’s death prior to commencement of benefits under the SERP, a participant’s beneficiary is entitled to receive a death benefit equal to 50% of the participant’s accrued benefit, as of the participant’s date of death. The Amendment amends the SERP, with respect to participants in the SERP who are actively employed by the Company and/or Webster Bank as of October 27, 2015, to permit a beneficiary of such a participant to receive a death benefit equal to 100% of the participant’s accrued benefit, as of the participant’s date of death.

The foregoing summary of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
