Form 8-K for FIRST BANCORP /NC/


13-Jun-2013

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.

On June 13, 2013, First Bancorp (the "Company") and Jerry L. Ocheltree entered into a Retirement Agreement and Release of Claims (the "Retirement Agreement"). Pursuant to the Retirement Agreement, Mr. Ocheltree's employment with the Company and the Company's affiliates, including the Company's banking subsidiary, First Bank, will terminate as of June 30, 2013 (the "Effective Date"), and Mr. Ocheltree will resign as President and as a director of First Bank, as of the Effective Date. The Retirement Agreement provides, as required by law, that Mr. Ocheltree may revoke the Retirement Agreement for a period of seven days from the date of the Retirement Agreement, in which case the provisions of the Retirement Agreement will become null and void.

Mr. Ocheltree's employment agreement with the Company (the "Employment Agreement"), provides for certain payments and other matters in connection with the cessation of Mr. Ocheltree's employment with the Company. The Employment Agreement was filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company's Form 8-K filed on January 25, 2006. The Retirement Agreement provides Mr. Ocheltree with payments, rights and obligations in connection with this cessation of employment, some of which incorporate certain provisions of the Employment Agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the Retirement Agreement, in consideration for a release of claims from Mr. Ocheltree and Mr. Ocheltree's agreement to non-solicitation, continuing assistance, non-disparagement and confidential information covenants, Mr. Ocheltree, among other things, will receive continued payment of his current base salary ($42,642.00 per month) through January 24, 2015, plus an additional payment of $330,000 within 30 days following execution of the Agreement, all subject to applicable withholding for federal and state taxes. Under the Retirement Agreement, the Company has agreed to waive certain non-compete covenants in the Employment Agreement that prevent Mr. Ocheltree from being employed with another financial institution in the Company's territory, but the covenants in the Employment Agreement that restrict Mr. Ocheltree from soliciting customers or employees of the Company and its affiliates will remain in force during the period in which he is receiving payments. Mr. Ocheltree will retain any vested stock options and vested restricted shares of the Company's stock, which will remain subject to the terms of the award agreements governing such options and shares. This summary of the terms of the Retirement Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Retirement Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.
