Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;
Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers. On December 19, 2013, New Jersey Resources Corporation (the "Company") entered into (i) performance share award agreements with performance criteria based upon the Company's total shareholder return ("TSR Performance Shares") and with performance criteria based upon the Company's average annual net financial earnings ("NFE") per basic share growth rate ("NFE Growth-Based Performance Shares") with each of the named executive officers, (ii) a deferred stock retention award agreement with Mr. Stephen D. Westhoven, (iii) a restricted stock award agreement with Mr. Glenn C. Lockwood, Ms. Kathleen T. Ellis and Ms. Mariellen Dugan, and (iv) a performance-based restricted stock agreement with performance criteria based upon annual NFE growth with Mr. Laurence M. Downes, all pursuant to the Company's 2007 Stock Award and Incentive Plan. Performance Shares
The TSR Performance Share awards vest, if at all, at the end of a 33-month performance period beginning on January 1, 2014, and ending on September 30, 2016, based on relative Company total shareholder return versus the established comparator group used for compensation purposes.
The NFE-Growth Based Performance Shares vest, if at all, based upon the Company's average annual NFE growth per basic share rate over the thirty-six month period beginning on October 1, 2013, and ending on September 30, 2016.

In the case of the TSR Performance Share and NFE-Growth Based Performance Share awards, if performance does not meet the minimum threshold level, no shares will vest.
Deferred Stock Retention Awards
The deferred stock retention awards consist of deferred stock units. Each deferred stock unit equals one share of our Common Stock and will accrue dividends. The deferred stock retention awards will become payable in full in shares of our Common Stock on October 15, 2016, provided that the named executive officer complies with certain covenants, including a non-competition restriction.

Performance-Based Restricted Stock Award The performance-based restricted stock awarded to Mr. Downes may vest in up to three equal installments on September 30, 2014, September 30, 2015, and September 30, 2016 if the performance goal of increased NFE per basic share over the prior fiscal year for each annual vesting date is achieved.
