Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of
Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
Election of Class I Directors
At the Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on October 22, 2013 (the "Annual Meeting"), Messrs. James K. Bass and Michael A. Daniels were re-elected as Class I Directors for a three-year term ending in 2016. As previously announced in the Company's proxy statement for the Annual Meeting, Lee C. Steele retired from the Board of Directors effective upon the Annual Meeting. Executive Bonus Plan
At the Annual Meeting, shareholders approved the Company's Executive Bonus Plan
- Corporate Financial Performance, a performance-based cash incentive plan for executives designed to achieve the Company's goals of increasing shareholder value and receiving a federal income tax deduction for compensation paid under the plan. A summary of the material terms and conditions of the plan is set forth in the Company's Definitive Proxy Statement, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 30, 2013 (the "Proxy Statement"), under the caption "Proposal 2: Approval of Executive Bonus Plan - Corporate Financial Performance." Such description is incorporated herein by reference and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Executive Bonus Plan, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. Clawback Policy
At the Board of Directors meeting on October 22, 2013 following the Annual Meeting, the Board adopted a clawback policy. The Company's clawback policy is as follows:
The Board shall, in all appropriate circumstances, require reimbursement of any annual incentive payment or long-term incentive payment to an executive officer where: (1) the payment was predicated upon achieving certain financial results that were subsequently the subject of a substantial restatement of Company financial statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission; (2) the Board determines the executive engaged in intentional misconduct that caused or substantially caused the need for the substantial restatement; and (3) a lower payment would have been made to the executive based upon the restated financial results. In each such instance, the Company will, to the extent practicable, seek to recover from the individual executive the amount by which the individual executive's incentive payments for the relevant period exceeded the lower payment that would have been made based on the restated financial results. For purposes of this policy, the term "executive officer" means any officer who has been designated an executive officer by the Board. The Company will not seek to recover or recoup incentive payments made more than 24 months prior to the date the applicable restatement is disclosed.
