Form 8-K for FRANKLIN ELECTRIC CO INC


7-May-2013

Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exhi


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

On May 3, 2013, the Board of Directors of the Company ratified the approval by the Management Organization and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the form of amended and restated Employment Security Agreement ("ESA") for Steven W. Aikman, Daniel J. Crose, Delancey W. Davis, Robert J. Stone and Thomas J. Strupp. The material modifications to the existing form of ESA, which provides severance benefits upon certain terminations of employment following a change in control of the Company, include the following:
Prior to the amendment, if payment of the severance benefits under the ESA would result in the imposition of an excise under Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code, the ESA for executives other than Mr. Aikman provided for a gross up, and the ESA for Mr. Aikman provided for an automatic reduction in benefits so as not to trigger the excise tax. These provisions have been eliminated. Instead, each executive can elect to either (i) receive the full amount of severance benefits and be responsible for paying any excise tax that may be imposed or (ii) receive severance benefits that are reduced to the maximum amount that can be paid without triggering the excise tax.

Prior to the amendment, the ESA provided for accelerated vesting of performance-based equity at the maximum performance level. Under the amended ESA, performance-based equity vests at the target performance level.

Prior to the amendment, severance benefits ceased earlier than the end of the applicable severance period if the executive attained age 65. Under the amended ESA, the severance benefits are no longer reduced or stopped when the executive attains age 65.

A copy of the amended and restated form of ESA is filed with this report on Form 8-K.
