Form 8-K for IDEX CORP /DE/


14-Nov-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.

(b) On November 8, 2013, IDEX Corporation ("IDEX") entered into an Employment Agreement with Andrew K. Silvernail setting forth the terms upon which he will continue to be employed as IDEX's chief executive officer. The terms of his new Employment Agreement are substantially similar to the terms of his previous employment agreement that expired on August 9, 2013 and was described in the Form 8-K filed on November 4, 2011. Under the terms of his new employment agreement Mr. Silvernail will be entitled to the following:

Annual base salary of $870,000 subject to increase (but not decrease) in the discretion of the Board of Directors after an annual review.

Annual incentive cash bonus and long-term equity awards under the IDEX Incentive Award Plan

In addition to normal employee benefits offered to IDEX's officers, he will be allowed to use IDEX's corporate aircraft for up to 25 hours of personal travel and will be provided with an automobile allowance in accordance with company policy.

If Mr. Silvernail's employment is terminated without cause not in connection with a change in control, he will receive the following as severance:

24 months of base salary payable in monthly installments;

24 months continued health benefits; and

a bonus equal to 200% of his base salary payable in 24 monthly installments.

If within 24 months following a change in control, Mr. Silvernail's employment is terminated without cause or he terminates his employment for "good reason" his severance is increased to 36 months base salary, 36 months continued health benefits and a bonus of 300% of his base salary payable in 36 monthly installments.

All severance benefits are subject to Mr. Silvernail's execution of a release of claims against IDEX, and compliance with a two year non-compete, and non-solicitation of employees and customers covenants.

In the event that Mr. Silvernail would be subject to excess parachute taxes in connection with a change in control, either all payments to which he would be entitled will be paid (and Mr. Silvernail will be responsible for all taxes thereon), or the payments will be reduced to an amount that he will no longer be subject to such excess parachute taxes, whichever produces the highest after-tax benefits to him.

The employment agreement's term is through November 7, 2015.

The foregoing description of Mr. Silvernail's employment agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to its terms, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. Item 8.01 - Other Events.
On November 8, 2013, the Company's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of an additional $300 million of IDEX's outstanding common shares. The increased repurchase authorization, when added to the approximately $75 million that remains available from the existing authorization approved by the Board of Directors in October 2012, provides the Company with a total authorized repurchase availability of $375 million.
The repurchases will be made from time to time in either open market transactions or in privately negotiated transactions. Repurchases may also be made under 10b5-1 plans, which would permit shares to be repurchased through pre-determined criteria when the Company would otherwise be prohibited from doing so under insider trading laws. The timing, volume and nature of share repurchases will be at the discretion of management, dependent on market conditions, other priorities of cash investment, applicable securities laws and other factors. This share repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of common stock, and it may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
