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

On December 23, 2013, the Board of Directors of Harbinger Group Inc. (the "Company" or "HGI"), following the review and approval by the Company's Compensation Committee (the "Committee"), approved the following compensation matters regarding Philip Falcone, the Company's Chief Executive officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors. Previously, Mr. Falcone did not receive any compensation from the Company for his services other than minor perquisite payments received in fiscal 2013.

Effective as of October 1, 2013, Mr. Falcone will be entitled to receive an annual base salary of $500,000. In addition, for fiscal year ending September 30, 2014 ("Fiscal 2014"), Mr. Falcone will be eligible to receive an annual bonus comprised of an individual bonus of up to $750,000 based upon the achievement of individual performance measures and a corporate bonus of up to $20 million based upon the results of the Company's corporate performance measured in accordance with terms of the Company's executive compensation plan. The payment of any Fiscal 2014 annual bonuses to HGI executives, including Mr. Falcone, will be made after the end of Fiscal 2014. The Committee is also negotiating the terms and conditions of an employment agreement with Mr. Falcone and anticipates granting Mr. Falcone an initial equity award. The Committee is comprised solely of directors who are independent under the rules of the New York Stock Exchange and advised by two compensation consultant firms and separate outside counsel.
