Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;
Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
(b) Dr. Leslie G. Denend, a member of the Board of Directors (the "Board") of VeriFone Systems, Inc. (the "Company") and the current Chairman of the Board, and Mr. Jeffrey E. Stiefler, a member of the Board and of the Audit Committee and the Compensation Committee of the Board, each notified the Company that he will not stand for re-election to the Board at the Company's upcoming 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for June 17, 2014 (the "2014 Annual Meeting"). The Board intends to appoint Mr. Hart (provided he is re-elected to the Board) as its non-executive chairman with effect immediately following the 2014 Annual Meeting. Neither Dr. Denend's nor Mr. Stiefler's decision is the result of any disagreement with the Board or the Company. Dr. Denend will continue to serve as director and Chairman of the Board, and Mr. Stiefler will continue to serve as director and a member of the Audit Committee and the Compensation Committee, until the close of the 2014 Annual Meeting, following which each will cease to be a director of the Company. The Company and the Board extend their appreciation to Dr. Denend and Mr. Steifler for their service on the Board and Board committees. Item 8.01. Other Events
On May 6, 2014, the Company announced that its Board, upon the recommendation of the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee, has nominated Mr. Jonathan I. Schwartz to stand for election to the Board at the Company's 2014 Annual Meeting. Mr. Schwartz has consented to such nomination and, if elected, to serve as a member of the Board. Immediately after the 2014 Annual Meeting, the number of authorized directors will be eight.
A copy of the Company's press release announcing Mr. Schwartz as a director nominee and the decisions of Dr. Denend and Mr. Stiefler to not stand for re-election is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this filing.
