Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Submission of Matters to a Vote


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

On June 11, 2014, Scientific Games Corporation (the "Company") held its annual meeting of stockholders. At the annual meeting, as detailed below, the Company's stockholders approved an amendment and restatement of the Company's 2003 Incentive Compensation Plan (the "2003 Plan"). Under the amended and restated 2003 Plan, the WMS Incentive Plan, which the Company assumed in connection with its acquisition of WMS Industries Inc. ("WMS") in October 2013 (the "Legacy WMS Plan") (renamed the Scientific Games Corporation Incentive Plan (2013 Restatement)), was merged into the 2003 Plan. As a result, the shares reserved and available under the two plans were combined into a single share pool, with such shares available for equity awards to any employee, non-employee director or other eligible service provider of the Company or its subsidiaries, including WMS.

The Legacy WMS Plan contained a share counting rule under which each share delivered in settlement of a "full-value" award-that is, an award other than an option or stock appreciation right-was counted as 1.8 shares against the shares reserved under the Legacy WMS Plan. In order to account for this rule, only 55.55% of the shares that nominally would be available for future grants under the Legacy WMS Plan were included in the combined share pool in the merger of the two plans. Accordingly, only 2,511,804 of the 4,521,699 shares available as of March 31, 2014 for future grants under the Legacy WMS Plan were added to the combined share pool under the amended and restated 2003 Plan (which, for share counting purposes, treats shares underlying full-value awards the same as shares underlying options or stock appreciation rights).

The amendment and restatement of the 2003 Plan did not increase the aggregate number of shares reserved and available for equity awards under the 2003 Plan and the Legacy WMS Plan. The awards originally granted under the Legacy WMS Plan will now be treated as awards outstanding under the amended and restated 2003 Plan. Shares will be recaptured from outstanding awards, to the extent the shares are not delivered to participants, in accordance with the share counting rules under the amended and restated 2003 Plan, which are less restrictive than those in the Legacy WMS Plan.

As part of the approval of the amended and restated 2003 Plan, stockholders also re-approved certain material terms of performance-based awards intended to preserve the opportunity to grant awards that could qualify for the performance exception from the limits on the Company's tax deductions for certain compensation under Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the amended and restated 2003 Plan, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.
