3-Feb-2014

Change in Directors or Principal Officers


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

(e) Entry into Compensatory Arrangement with Named Executive Officer

As previously reported in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed on January 15, 2014, Zimmer Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") announced the departure of Jeffery
A. McCaulley, the Company's former President, Zimmer Reconstructive, effective January 10, 2014. This Current Report on Form 8-K is being filed to disclose the material terms of the Company's separation agreement with Mr. McCaulley, entered into on January 28, 2014.

Pursuant to the separation agreement, and in consideration of Mr. McCaulley's execution of a general release of claims in favor of the Company, the Company will provide Mr. McCaulley with the following severance benefits in lieu of the benefits that would be payable pursuant to the Company's severance plan generally applicable to full-time employees based in the United States: (1) a lump sum payment of $275,000, which is equal to six months of his base salary at the time of his separation; (2) an additional lump sum payment of $8,520.78, which is the cost of COBRA group health insurance continuation coverage for six months; and (3) outplacement services in an amount not to exceed $25,000. In addition, in accordance with the terms of the Company's severance plan, Mr. McCaulley will be eligible to receive a lump sum payment equal to the value of the cash bonus he would have received under the Company's Executive Performance Incentive Plan for 2013 had he remained employed by the Company on the bonus payout date. This amount will be payable in or around March 2014. Further, in accordance with the Company's stock incentive plans and applicable award agreements, time-based vesting conditions on certain stock option and restricted stock unit awards will lapse and Mr. McCaulley will have until April 10, 2014 to exercise vested stock options.

Amounts paid to Mr. McCaulley pursuant to the separation agreement and the terms of the Company's stock incentive plans and award agreements are subject to forfeiture, clawback and full repayment to the Company if Mr. McCaulley were to violate the terms of the separation agreement, the general release or the confidentiality, non-competition and non-solicitation agreement he previously entered into with the Company. The separation agreement and general release remain subject to revocation by Mr. McCaulley through February 4, 2014.
