Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Other Events, Financial


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

On March 10, 2014, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the "Company") elected Nancy Wysenski, to serve as a class I director until the Company's Annual Meeting of Stockholders in 2014 or until her successor is duly elected and qualified.

Ms. Wysenski will receive compensation for her board service as a non-employee director in accordance with the Company's previously disclosed director compensation program, including a one-time nonqualified stock option that was granted to Ms. Wysenski under the Company's 2013 Stock Incentive Plan to purchase 20,000 shares of the Company's common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the "Common Stock"), with an exercise price of $12.38 per share, equal to the closing price of the Common Stock on the NASDAQ Global Market on March 10, 2014. The option will vest in equal quarterly installments over a three-year period measured from the date of grant, subject to Ms. Wysenski's continued service as a director, and becoming exercisable in full upon a change in control of the Company.

In addition, Ms. Wysenski will enter into an indemnification agreement (the "Indemnification Agreement") with the Company. The Indemnification Agreement will be substantially identical to the form of indemnification agreement that the Company has entered into with its other directors and provides that the Company will indemnify Ms. Wysenski to the fullest extent permitted by law for claims arising in her capacity as a director, provided that she acted in good faith and in a manner that she reasonably believed to be in, or not opposed to, the best interest of the Company and, with respect to any criminal proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe that her conduct was unlawful. The Indemnification Agreement will provide that in the event that we do not assume the defense of a claim against Ms. Wysenski, the Company is required to advance her expenses in connection with her defense, provided that she undertakes to repay all amounts advanced if it is ultimately determined that she is not entitled to be indemnified by the Company.

The foregoing description of the Indemnification Agreement is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the form of indemnification agreement by and between the Company and each of its officers and directors, which is incorporated herein by reference to Exhibit 10.27 to the Company's Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-186574), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 5, 2013.



Item 8.01. Other Events.
