(e) On June 29, 2007, we entered into a Change-in-Control Agreement (the Agreement) with D. Currey Hall (the Executive). The Agreement provides that if Executives employment is terminated by the Company following a Change in Control and during the Term of the Agreement, other than by the Company for Cause, by reason of death or Disability, or by Executive without Good Reason, Executive will be entitled to, among other things: (i) a lump sum cash amount equal to Executives unpaid base salary, accrued vacation pay, unreimbursed business expenses and all other items earned by Executive through the Date of Termination; (ii) a lump sum cash amount equal to the prorated portion at the target award level of any unpaid incentive compensation allocated or awarded to Executive preceding the Date of Termination; (iii) a lump sum cash amount equal to one and one-half times Executives annual base salary in effect immediately prior to the Date of Termination or, if higher, immediately prior to the first occurrence of an event constituting Good Reason; (iv) a lump sum cash amount equal to one and one-half times the greater of (A) Executives target bonus percentage times his then current annual base salary and (B) the average annual bonus earned by Executive with respect to the three fiscal years (or, if Executive has been employed for less than three fiscal years, the average bonus for the number of full fiscal years of Executives employment) ending immediately prior to the fiscal year in which the Date of Termination occurs or, if higher, immediately prior to the fiscal year in which the first event constituting Good Reason occurs; (v) continuation coverage under the Companys health care and life insurance plans at the same cost and coverage level as in effect as of the Date of Termination; and (vi) subject to certain exceptions, the immediate vesting of all stock options, restricted stock and performance share awards as of the date of a Change in Control. The Agreement provides that Executive would be eligible for payments in reimbursement for excise taxes imposed on the severance payments and benefits.
In addition, the Agreement provides that if Executives employment is terminated by the Company without Cause and not in the context of a Change of Control during the Term of the Agreement, Executive will be entitled to, among other things, the following severance payments: (i), (ii) and (v) described above, as well as continuation of his base salary in effect immediately prior to the Date of Termination for a period of 18 months after the Date of Termination.
Executive will also be subject to a post-termination non-competition covenant, non-disclosure covenant and a post-termination non-solicitation covenant. All severance payments described above are contingent upon Executives compliance with these covenants, and any violation of these covenants will cause the Executive to forfeit any unpaid severance payments.
On June 29, 2007, we also revised our Change-in-Control Agreement with Jeffrey T. Gray, previously reported on our Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 6, 2007, to provide for similar severance payments if Mr. Gray is terminated by the Company without Cause and not in the context of a Change of Control, except his base salary continues for a period of 24 months after the Date of Termination. Mr. Grays revised Agreement also provides for the forfeiture provisions described above.
Defined terms used in this Form 8-K but not otherwise defined have the meanings set forth in the Agreement.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
