Form 8-K for BANK OF THE OZARKS INC


5-Aug-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Change in Directors or Princip


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Reference is made to the information set forth in response to Item 5.02, which information is incorporated herein by reference.



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

On August 5, 2013, Bank of the Ozarks, Inc. (the "Company") announced the election of Catherine Blanton Freedberg, Ph.D. to the respective boards of directors of the Company and its wholly-owned bank subsidiary, Bank of the Ozarks. Upon her election to the boards of directors, Ms. Freedberg ("Indemnitee") entered into an indemnification agreement with the Company which is substantially identical to the form of indemnification agreements entered into by the Company with all other directors. The indemnification agreement provides, subject to certain exceptions, that the Indemnitee shall be indemnified to the fullest possible extent permitted by law against any amount which Indemnitee becomes legally obligated to pay because of any act or omission or neglect or breach of duty. Such amount includes all expenses (including attorneys' fees), damages, judgments, costs and settlement amounts, actually and reasonably incurred or paid by the Indemnitee in any action, suit or proceeding, including any action by or on behalf of the Company, on account of Indemnitee's service as a director of the Company or any subsidiary of the Company. The indemnification agreement further provides that expenses incurred by the Indemnitee in defending such actions, in accordance with the terms of the agreement, shall be paid in advance, subject to the Indemnitee's obligation to reimburse the Company in the event it is ultimately determined that Indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified for such expenses under any of the provisions of the indemnification agreement.

The indemnification agreement also states that no indemnification is provided if a final court adjudication shall determine that such indemnification is not lawful, or in respect of any suit in which judgment is rendered for an accounting of profits made from a purchase or sale of securities of the Company in violation of Section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or of any similar statutory provision, or on account of any remuneration, personal profit or advantage which is determined to have been obtained in violation of law.

The foregoing summary of the indemnification agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the express provisions of the form of indemnification agreement attached as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company's current report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 21, 2011.



Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits

(d) Exhibits
