(e) Compensation Arrangements of Certain Officers
Executive Retention Plan
To provide continuity of key members of the management team and address the elevated risk of executive retention associated with the ongoing strategic alternatives process being undertaken by the management team and Board of Directors (“Board”) of TiVo Corporation (“TiVo” or the “Company”), the Compensation Committee (“Committee”) of the Board of TiVo approved an Executive Retention Plan (the “Plan”) for certain Company executives as designated by the Committee (“Participants”), including one of the Company’s named executive officers (as defined in Item 402(a)(3) of Regulation S-K promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission): Pamela Sergeeff, Executive Vice President and General Counsel.
Under the terms of the Plan, a Participant may earn a cash payment (subject to applicable withholding taxes) (the “Retention Award”), as set under the Plan, if such Participant remains employed by the Company on December 31, 2019; provided that if the Participant is terminated by the Company without “Cause” (as defined below) or the Participant resigns for “Good Reason” (as defined below) before May 9, 2019, and the Participant has remained actively employed in good standing through such Participant’s termination date, such Participant shall, subject to the conditions described below, be paid 66% of such Participant’s Retention Award; and if the Participant is terminated by the Company without “Cause” or the Participant resigns for “Good Reason” after May 9, 2019, such Participant shall, subject to the conditions described below, be paid all of such Participant’s Retention Award. If a Participant (a) voluntarily resigns from the Company without “Good Reason”, or (b) is terminated by the Company for “Cause”, or (c) is terminated by the Company for poor performance (as reasonably determined by the Company’s Board of Directors), or (d) dies or becomes disabled, in each case prior to December 31, 2019, no Retention Award will be paid to such Participant.
For purposes of the Plan, “Cause” and “Good Reason” shall have the same meanings as given to them in the Form of Executive Severance and Arbitration Agreement filed as Exhibit 10.22 to the TiVo Corporation Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.
A Participant’s right to receive benefits under the Plan is conditioned, among other things, on the Participant executing an effective release of claims against the Company following termination of employment.
Ms. Sergeeff is eligible to receive up to $375,000 subject to the terms of the Plan.
