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.

(e) Effective March 15, 2013, YUM! Brands, Inc. (the "Company") entered into Amended and Restated Change in Control Severance Agreements ("Restated Agreements") with certain of its officers, including David C. Novak, Richard Carucci and Jing-Shyh S. Su. The Restated Agreements contain substantially the same terms as the Company's prior form of change in control severance agreement, except the Restated Agreements eliminate the excise tax gross-up benefit provided under the prior form of agreement and implement a "best net after-tax method". Pursuant to the best net after-tax method, if an executive is subject to any excise tax imposed pursuant to Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code, the executive will only have their change in control payments reduced if the reduction will leave them in a better after-tax position. If the executive will be in a better after-tax position by receiving their change in control payment in full, the executive will be solely responsible for payment of any excise tax.

In addition, effective March 15, 2013, the Company entered into Change in Control Severance Agreements ("New Agreements") with officers, Patrick Grismer and Muktesh Pant. The terms of the New Agreements and Restated Agreements are identical.

Except for elimination of the excise tax gross-up and implementation of the best net after-tax method, the Agreements continue to provide that, if the executive terminates employment (1) other than for cause, death or disability, or (2) for good reason, within two years of a change in control of the Company, then the executive will be entitled to receive the following: (i) a proportionate annual incentive assuming achievement of target performance goals under the Company's bonus plan or, if higher, assuming continued achievement of actual Company performance until date of termination, (ii) a severance payment equal to two times the sum of the executive's base salary and the target bonus or, if higher, the actual bonus for the year preceding the change in control of the Company and
(iii) outplacement services for up to one year following termination. The Agreements continue to have a three?year term that is automatically renewable each January 1 for another three?year term. The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of the Agreements, which is filed as an exhibit to this report and incorporated herein by reference.
