CLEAR CHANNEL OUTDOOR HOLDINGS, INC. (NYSE:CCO) Files An 8-K Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain OfficersItem 5.02
On May1, 2018, the Compensation Committee (the “Compensation Committee”) of the Board of Directors of iHeartMedia, Inc. (“iHeartMedia”), the indirect parent of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”), approved the terms and conditions governing the iHeartMedia, Inc. 2018 Key Employee Incentive Plan (the “2018 KEIP”) and quarterly bonus opportunities for the second, third and fourth quarters of 2018 for certain key employees of iHeartMedia, some of whom are also employees of the Company. The 2018 KEIP and the quarterly bonus opportunities described below are subject to approval by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas.
Under the 2018 KEIP, each participant is eligible to earn a performance bonus in cash at the end of each of the second, third and fourth quarters of 2018 (the “Quarterly Bonuses”), depending upon the extent to which certain performance goals have been achieved for each such quarter. In addition to being measured on a quarterly basis, the performance goals will be measured cumulatively from April1, 2018 through the end of each of the third and fourth quarters of 2018 and a participant will be eligible to earn, in addition to the Quarterly Bonuses for the third and fourth quarters, an amount equal to the Quarterly Bonuses based on achievement of the cumulative performance goals minus the Quarterly Bonuses actually paid for each such quarter. In order to earn a Quarterly Bonus for any quarter, a participant must generally remain employed by iHeartMedia through the end of the applicable quarter. A participant whose employment with iHeartMedia terminates due to death or disability or by iHeartMedia without “cause” or by the participant for “good reason” prior to the end of the applicable quarter will receive a pro-rated portion of the bonus that would otherwise have been earned for that quarter.
The Compensation Committee approved the following Quarterly Bonus opportunities under the 2018 KEIP for the following named executive officers:
Robert W. Pittman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, will be eligible to earn a target Quarterly Bonus for each of the second, third and fourth quarters of 2018 of $2,325,000.
