Form 8-K for AMICUS THERAPEUTICS INC


24-Apr-2013

Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exhib


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

On April 18, 2013, Amicus Therapeutics, Inc. (the "Company") and John F. Crowley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, entered into an amendment (the "Crowley Amendment") to Mr. Crowley's Employment Agreement dated June 28, 2011 (the "Crowley Employment Agreement") pursuant to which the Company and Mr. Crowley agreed to eliminate a gross-up for taxes arising under
Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code (relating to the payment of deferred compensation). At the same time, the Company entered into amendments to its severance and change of control agreements with each of William D. Baird, III (Chief Financial Officer), Bradley L. Campbell (Chief Business Officer) and David J. Lockhart (Chief Scientific Officer) to also eliminate these tax gross-ups.

In addition, the agreements with Messrs. Baird, Campbell and Dr. Lockhart were further amended to provide for 18 months of base salary continuation (up from 12 months) in the event of a severance event in connection with a change in control. Compensation due to Mr. Crowley under the Crowley Employment Agreement was unchanged, except the Company agreed to fully subsidize the costs of his COBRA premiums if he experiences a severance event in connection with a change in control. Previously, Mr. Crowley would have been required to pay an amount for COBRA coverage equal to the active employee cost of group health coverage.

A copy of the Crowley Amendment, along with the amendments to the severance and change of control agreements of Mr. Baird, Mr. Campbell and Dr. Lockhart, are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, 10.3 and 10.4, respectively, and incorporated herein by reference.



Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.

(d) Exhibits: The Exhibit Index annexed hereto is incorporated herein by reference.
