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

(c)As previously announced and reported on Form 8-K, Michael F. Roman, executive vice president and chief operating officer, has been appointed by the Board of Directors to become 3M Company’s chief executive officer, effective July1, 2018, succeeding Inge G. Thulin.In connection with this appointment, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors has determined Mr.Roman’s compensation and benefit arragements. The following describes the key terms of his compensation and benefit arrangements when he assumes the chief executive officer position in July:

Cash — Mr.Roman’s annual target cash compensation will be $3,120,000 — composed of an annual base salary of $1,200,000 paid in accordance with the Company’s payroll practices, as in effect from time to time, plus target annual incentive compensation of $1,920,000. For 2018, both amounts will be prorated from July1. Mr.Roman’s actual annual incentive compensation will be determined by the Board of Directors (or a duly authorized committee thereof) and may be more or less than this target amount depending on a variety of factors, including Mr.Roman’s individual performance and the performance of the Company. The amount of Mr.Roman’s target cash compensation will be reviewed at least once a year and may be adjusted at the discretion of the Board of Directors.

Long-Term Incentives — The Board of Directors (or a duly authorized committee thereof) will determine the target value of Mr.Roman’s annual long-term incentive grants each year based on market data from 3M’s benchmarking groups and his individual performance. These grants generally will be made in the form of stock options and performance shares. Regardless of an award’s target value, the actual value that ultimately may be realized will depend on a number of factors, including satisfaction of the vesting terms and 3M’s stock price at the time of exercise or settlement. The actual form of each award, the number of shares of 3M stock covered, the exercise or purchase price of the underlying shares, the vesting requirements, and the other terms and conditions of each award will be determined by the Board of Directors (or a duly authorized committee thereof), in its discretion.

Benefits and Perquisites — Mr.Roman will be eligible to participate in the same retirement and welfare benefit plans, and receive financial planning assistance, to the extent that the Company makes such benefits available to its other similarly situated executives and, in each case, in accordance with the terms of the plans and policies as in effect from time to time. He will be expected to use 3M’s corporate aircraft for all business and personal travel, as described in, and subject to, 3M’s Policy on Use of Company Aircraft, as amended from time to time. 3M also will provide an appropriate vehicle and driver for Mr.Roman’s business travel in the Twin Cities metropolitan area (including commuting to and from the Company’s offices), and pay all expenses of operating this vehicle. 3M will provide video security monitoring for both of Mr.Roman’s personal residences. 3M will not provide tax gross-up payments with respect to any of Mr.Roman’s benefits, perquisites or other compensatory payments.
