Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On May 6, 2019, following approval by the Compensation Committee (the Committee) of the Board of Directors (the Board) of the Company and the Board, the Company entered into an employment agreement (the Employment Agreement) with Peter R. Knitzer, to which Mr. Knitzer will continue to serve as the Companys President and Chief Executive Officer. The Employment Agreement replaces Mr. Knitzers prior employment agreement with the Company, which had a three-year term that would have ended on August 1, 2019 (the Prior Agreement). The Employment Agreement was effective as of May 6, 2019 and provides for a term of employment ending on July 31, 2022, which represents a three-year extension of the Prior Agreements term.
The Employment Agreement contains substantially the same terms as the Prior Agreement, with certain compensation updates and other technical amendments. The key terms of the Employment Agreement (as compared to the Prior Agreement) include: an increase in Mr. Knitzers base salary to $600,000 (from $530,000), which salary remains subject to increases as may be determined by the Board or the Committee from time to time; an increase in Mr. Knitzers target bonus opportunity under the Companys Annual Incentive Plan to 150% of base salary (from 50%); and an increase in Mr. Knitzers aggregate annual compensation opportunity to no less than $3,600,000 (from $3,000,000), which opportunity remains subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable Company incentive plans and related award agreements in addition to the Committees discretion to adjust base salaries, allocate cash and equity compensation opportunities, establish performance and/or multi-year service criteria, and determine attainment of performance and other criteria established by the Committee. Additionally, the Employment Agreement clarifies that Mr. Knitzer will be reimbursed for COBRA premiums following a termination due to disability (as defined in the Employment Agreement) and also provides that to the extent any long-term incentive award agreement contains a definition of retirement, the definition of retirement found in the Employment Agreement shall control to the extent more favorable.
