(e) Compensatory Arrangements for Certain Officers.
On August 15, 2018, the Organization & Compensation Committee (the Committee) of the Board of Directors (the Board) of Humana Inc. (the Company) and Bruce D. Broussard, the Companys President and Chief Executive Officer, mutually agreed to transition Mr. Broussard from a written employment agreement to a policy-based approach to document the terms of Mr. Broussards continued employment by the Company. In contemplation of the fact that Mr. Broussards current employment agreement is set to expire on December 31, 2018, and following a review of market practices with respect to CEO employment arrangements conducted by the Committees independent compensation consultant, the parties effected the transition through: (i) an amendment to Mr. Broussards current employment agreement; (ii) revisions to certain internal policies, in each case as described in this Current Report on Form 8-K:
On August 16, 2018, the Company and Mr. Broussard entered into Amendment No. 2 (the Amendment) to the Companys Amended and Restated Employment Agreement with Mr. Broussard (the Employment Agreement). The Amendment provides for the survivability of certain provisions of the Employment Agreement pertaining to the treatment of Mr. Broussards equity awards granted on or before December 31, 2018, in connection with the continued employment of Mr. Broussard as the Companys President and Chief Executive Officer following the expiration of the Employment Agreement on December 31, 2018.
On August 15, 2018, the Committee adopted revisions to the Humana Inc. Change in Control Policy (the CIC Policy) and the Humana Inc. Executive Severance Policy (the Severance Policy), in each case effective as of January 1, 2019, to include the CEO as an eligible employee to receive benefits under each policy and to provide for the applicable level of severance benefits for the CEO under each policy.
The CIC Policy was revised to provide for certain benefits in the event that the CEOs employment is terminated by the Company without Cause or by the CEO with Good Reason, in each case within twenty-four months following a Change in Control, or by the Company without Cause under certain circumstances prior to a Change in Control (all terms are as defined in the CIC Policy). Under the revised CIC Policy, the CEO would be entitled to receive severance pay in a lump sum equal to two and one-half times the sum of the CEOs annual base salary plus the target incentive compensation payable to him or her. In addition, for a thirty-month severance period, the CEO would be entitled to receive all life insurance, health insurance, dental insurance, accidental death and dismemberment insurance and disability insurance under plans and programs in which the CEO participated immediately prior to the date of termination. In consideration for the rights and benefits provided by the CIC Policy, the CEO agreed to certain restrictive covenants (non-compete and non-solicit) for the period from January 1, 2019, through thirty months following the CEOs date of termination.
The Severance Policy was revised to provide for certain benefits in the event that the CEO is involuntarily terminated for reasons not meeting the definition of Cause (as defined in the Severance Policy). Under the revised Severance Policy, the CEO would (i) receive continued salary payments for twenty-four months following the date of termination, (ii) remain eligible to receive a prorated portion of annual incentive compensation for the year of termination based on actual performance to be paid at the time that incentive compensation payments are made to participants who remain employed and (iii), be entitled to continued medical and dental coverage under the Companys health care plan for twenty-four months following the date of termination. In consideration for the rights and benefits provided by the Severance Policy, the CEO agreed to certain restrictive covenants (non-compete and non-solicit) for the period from January 1, 2019, through twenty-four months following the CEOs date of termination.
The foregoing descriptions are summaries of the material terms of the Amendment, the CIC Policy and the Severance Policy, do not purport to be complete, and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Amendment, the CIC Policy and the Severance Policy, as applicable, which are filed as Exhibit 10.1, Exhibit 10.2 and Exhibit 10.3, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated by reference herein.
