Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On March 12, 2014, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Weight Watchers International, Inc. (the "Company") increased its size to nine directors and unanimously elected Cynthia Elkins as a member of the Board, effective as of March 30, 2014, the beginning of the Company's second quarter of fiscal 2014. Ms. Elkins will serve the remainder of the term of John F. Bard, a Class I director who passed away on November 10, 2013, and will stand for re-election to the Board at the Company's 2014 annual meeting of shareholders. Ms. Elkins will also serve on the Board's Audit Committee effective as of March 30, 2014.

There were no arrangements or understandings pursuant to which Ms. Elkins was appointed as a director, and there are no related party transactions between the Company and Ms. Elkins reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

Ms. Elkins will also receive the standard grant of common stock of the Company (currently 1,000 shares per annum) that is distributed on December 15th of each fiscal year. All shares of common stock of the Company granted to a director are subject to transfer restrictions such that the shares cannot be sold or transferred until the director is no longer serving on the Board.
