Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Other Events


Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;
Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers. On May 15, 2014, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of A. H. Belo Corporation (the "Company" or "A. H. Belo") approved changes to the compensatory arrangements for Grant S. Moise, one of the Company's named executive officers disclosed in the definitive proxy statement relating to the 2014 annual meeting of shareholders of A. H. Belo, filed with the SEC on April 1, 2014 (the "2014 proxy statement"). As Senior Vice President, Business Development & Niche Products of The Dallas Morning News, Mr. Moise plays an important role in the Company's efforts to diversify revenue streams, explore acquisition opportunities and grow marketing services revenue. In light of this leadership role, and in order to more fully align Mr. Moise's incentives with the current goals and initiatives of the Company, Mr. Moise's incentive compensation will be structured in a similar manner as the incentive programs for the other named executive officers discussed in the 2014 proxy statement. For additional information about the structure and operation of the Company's executive compensation program, please refer to the "Compensation Discussion and Analysis" section of the 2014 proxy statement.
Effective with the second quarter of 2014, Mr. Moise (i) will participate in the cash incentive bonus program under the A. H. Belo 2008 Incentive Compensation Plan (the "ICP"), which provides for cash incentive bonuses based on financial performance objectives established or approved by the Board, and (ii) will no longer participate in the quarterly sales commission plan described in the 2014 proxy statement. Effective May 15, 2014, Mr. Moise's annualized base salary will be set at $325,000 and his target cash incentive bonus opportunity will be 55% of such salary. As is currently the case with the Company's other named executive officers, 50% of Mr. Moise's total incentive bonus opportunity will be determined based on achievement with respect to individual non-financial objectives and 50% will be determined based on achievement with respect to financial performance metrics set by the Board. These financial and non-financial performance objectives may vary from year to year. For 2014, the financial performance metrics applicable to Mr. Moise are generally designed to align with the performance of the businesses Mr. Moise oversees, including The Dallas Morning News' niche publications and its marketing services businesses, 508 Digital and Speakeasy. On May 15, 2014, Mr. Moise was also awarded an incremental long-term incentive compensation grant of $15,822, which is in addition to the $75,000 long-term incentive compensation grant he received in March 2014. This incremental long-term incentive compensation is granted 50% in the form of time-based restricted stock units and 50% in the form of time-based cash outside of the ICP. The time-based restricted stock units are granted under the ICP and are subject to the standard form of evidence of grant used thereunder in connection with grants to Company executives. Item 5.07.
