Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statemen


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

On March 15, 2013, New Hampshire Thrift Bancshares, Inc. (the "Company") announced that Stephen W. Ensign will retire as an employee of the Company and of Lake Sunapee Bank, fsb (the "Bank") effective April 30, 2013. Upon his retirement, Mr. Ensign will serve as the non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of both the Company and the Bank.

As previously announced, the Company, the Bank and Mr. Ensign entered into a consulting services letter agreement (the "Consulting Agreement"), which will be become effective on May 1, 2013. The Consulting Agreement has an initial term ending on the fifth anniversary of the Effective Date, which will be automatically extended for successive one-year periods unless either party provides notice of its intention not to extend the term at least 30 days prior to the applicable renewal date. Mr. Ensign will receive an annual consulting fee of $90,000. In the event that the Company or the Bank terminate the Consulting Agreement during the initial five-year term without "cause" (as defined in Mr. Ensign's employment agreements with the Company and the Bank, both of which will terminate on the Effective Date), Mr. Ensign will receive a lump sum payment equal to the lesser of (i) $90,000 or (ii) the consulting fees that would have been paid through the expiration of the initial five-year term had no such termination occurred. In addition, all outstanding unvested equity awards held by Mr. Ensign will become fully vested and exercisable on the effective date of the termination of the Consulting Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Consulting Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Consulting Agreement, which was attached as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 22, 2013, and is incorporated herein by reference.
