Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exhibits


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

(e) On March 27, 2014, PartnerRe Ltd. (the "Company") or, in certain cases, a subsidiary of the Company, entered into an amended and restated employment agreement with each of Messrs. Costas Miranthis, William Babcock, Emmanuel Clarke and Theodore C. Walker, each of whom is a named executive officer of the Company and a member of the Company's Executive Committee.

Mr. Miranthis' amended and restated employment agreement, among other things, provides that:

Effective for the 2014 performance year, the target value of his annual equity award will be $4,500,000 and the target value of his annual incentive will be 150% of his base salary. The amounts of annual equity award and annual incentive he will receive will be determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Board").

Upon his termination of employment due to death, his spouse (or dependent children if he has no spouse at the time of death) will receive, among other things, (i) 12 months of base salary (an increase from 6 months), (ii) a payment equal to the target annual incentive for the year of termination (an increase of 50%) and (iii) continued health coverage for 24 months following the termination.

Upon his termination of employment without cause or for good reason, any unvested restricted share unit and share appreciation right awards held by him at the time of termination will vest and, if applicable, be paid out, and any unvested performance share unit awards held by him at the time of termination will vest on a pro rata basis and be paid out based on target level of performance.

In the event that the Company elects to terminate his employment before the end of the required notice period, he will receive a payment that reflects the amount of compensation he would have earned had he remained an employee through the termination date originally specified in the notice of termination.

He will generally be subject to covenants not to compete or solicit for a period of 12 months following termination. In the event of an early termination by the Company after the notice of termination is communicated for a termination without cause or for good reason, he will be subject to such covenants from the date of such early termination to the termination date originally specified in the notice of termination and for 12 months thereafter.

The amended and restated employment agreements for Messrs. Babcock, Clarke and Walker include the same provisions as described above for Mr. Miranthis, except that:

The target value of annual equity awards for each will be $1,250,000, and the target values of their annual incentives (all at 100% of base salary) remain unchanged.

In the case of a termination of employment without cause or for good reason, any unvested restricted share unit and share appreciation right awards will vest on a pro rata basis and, if applicable, be paid out.

On March 27, 2014, the Company amended its Change in Control Policy (the "CIC Policy"). The amended CIC Policy provides for certain change in control benefits upon the occurrence of a qualifying change in control event (defined as a "Significant Transaction" in the amended CIC Policy) and a qualifying termination. The definition of a "Significant Transaction" provides, among other things, that a Significant Transaction would occur when, at any time during a period of 12 consecutive months, 50% or more of the Board members at the beginning of such period cease to be Board members for any reason. The change in control benefits include accelerated vesting and, if applicable, payment of any unvested equity awards.


The amended CIC Policy, and the amended forms of executive equity award agreements (reflecting the treatment of equity awards described above), are filed as Exhibits 10.1 through 10.4 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
