Item 5.02 - Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
(e) Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
On February 15, 2018, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (the "Company"), directly and/or through its subsidiaries, entered into new executive employment agreements with each of Lori Lipcaman, its Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; Clarence Tse, its Executive Vice President, Business Head Semiconductors; Joel Smejkal, its Executive Vice President, Business Head Passive Components; David Valletta, its Executive Vice President, Worldwide Sales; and Werner Gebhardt, its Executive Vice President, Global Human Resources.  Each of these agreements is referred to in this Current Report on Form 8-K as an "Executive Employment Agreement."  In addition, on February 15, 2018, the Company entered into an amendment to its services agreement with Johan Vandoorn, its Executive Vice President and Chief Technical Officer (the "Services Agreement Amendment," and together with the Executive Employment Agreements, the "Agreements").

The principal terms of the Agreements are summarized below:

Term: Each Agreement continues in effect indefinitely, subject to termination in accordance the with severance and notice provisions described below.

Title, Salary, Pension and Cash Bonus Opportunities:  The Agreements preserve the executives' current titles, salaries and pension entitlements.  The executives will continue to be eligible to receive cash bonuses substantially consistent with previously disclosed terms, and the Compensation Committee of the Company's Board of Directors will have discretion in setting the goals used in determining such cash bonuses.

Annual Equity Awards: Each executive will be entitled to an annual equity grant, each with a grant date fair value equal to a specified percentage of such executive's then-current base salary. Up to 75% of the awards granted in any year may be subject to performance-based vesting, with the balance of the awards subject to time-based vesting.  All annual equity awards will vest in full immediately prior to the consummation of a change of control transaction.  The agreements also provide for acceleration of the annual equity awards under the following circumstances:

Time-based vesting conditions will be deemed satisfied, and performance-based vesting conditions will remain in effect, upon the executive's death, disability, termination without cause, resignation for good reason, or resignation for any reason following the attainment of age 62 (except where cause exists).

Accelerated or continued vesting, as applicable, will be subject to the executive's execution of a release (except in the event of the executive's death).

Compensation on Termination:

Severance: Upon a termination without cause or resignation with good reason, and subject to the execution of a general release, the executives will be entitled to receive:
continuation of base salary for 36 months;
payment of any earned but unpaid bonus for the previously completed year; and
payment of a pro-rata bonus for the year of termination, based on that year's actual performance.

Effect of Change in Control on Severance:
Upon a termination without cause or resignation with good reason within 16 months following a change in control, the 36 months of base salary continuation will be paid as a lump sum payment.
In the event a change in control, any resignation during the 12 month period beginning 4 months following the change in control will trigger the severance payment described above, unless cause then exists.

Death or Disability: In the event of termination due to death or disability, the executive or their estate will receive:
payment of any earned but unpaid bonus for the previously completed year; and
payment of a pro-rata bonus for the year of termination, based on that year's actual performance.

The Executive Employment Agreements with Ms. Lipcaman and Mr. Gebhardt, who are both German residents, provide the benefits described above, but vary slightly from the other Executive Employment Agreements to accommodate the requirements of German employment law, including notice of termination and other requirements.

Restrictive Covenants: The Agreements also provide for customary non-compete and non-solicitation covenants, which apply during employment and for one year thereafter, except for German executives, who may be subject to "garden leaves" that have substantially similar effects.

The foregoing summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreements, which are filed as Exhibits 10.1–10.6, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
