Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;
Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

SERP AMENDMENTS

On June 24, 2010, the Human Resources Committee (the "Committee") of the Board of Directors of AT&T Inc. ("AT&T") amended AT&T's 2005 Supplemental Employee Retirement Plan (the "SERP") with respect to the SERP benefit for AT&T's Chief Executive Officer, Randall Stephenson (the "June Amendment"). As a result of the June Amendment, (1) Mr. Stephenson's compensation for purposes of calculating his SERP benefit was frozen as of June 30, 2010, (2) Mr. Stephenson's age and service for purposes of calculating his SERP benefit will be frozen as of December 31, 2012, and (3) interest will accrue on the discounted present value of Mr. Stephenson's frozen SERP benefit during his employment, beginning January 1, 2013. The June Amendment included a determination that the interest rate applicable to Mr. Stephenson's benefit will also be the discount rate used to convert Mr. Stephenson's frozen SERP benefit to a lump sum as well as the rate used to convert the lump sum amount to the form of distribution elected by Mr. Stephenson, and the Committee determined to set the actual interest rate at a later meeting.

At its meeting on December 15, 2011, the Committee set the interest and discount rate for Mr. Stephenson's SERP at 5.8% and made other clarifying changes to the SERP. The 5.8% rate is the same rate that applies to any other SERP participant who becomes eligible for a distribution during calendar year 2012.

EQUITY RETENTION AND HEDGING POLICY

Also, on December 15, 2011, the Committee approved the AT&T Inc. Equity Retention and Hedging Policy (the "Policy"). Pursuant to the policy, AT&T's executive officers must retain 25% (after taxes and exercise costs) of AT&T stock received under an incentive, equity, or option award granted after January 1, 2012, until one year after termination of employment with AT&T. The Policy also prohibits executive officers from hedging AT&T stock and restates existing stock ownership guidelines.
