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


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

On June 16, 2014, Repros Therapeutics Inc. (the "Company") and Joseph S. Podolski, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer ("Mr. Podolski" or "Executive"), entered into an employment agreement (the "Agreement"), which replaces Mr. Podolski's prior employment agreement dated as of January 1, 1993, as subsequently amended.

The initial term of the Agreement commences on June 16, 2014 and, unless sooner terminated in accordance with its terms, expires on June 15, 2018, subject to automatic one-year renewals unless notice is given by either party at least 60 days prior to the end of the then current term. Under the Agreement, Mr. Podolski's minimum base salary is $495,000 per year. Mr. Podolski's base salary is subject to review at least annually by the Compensation and Option Committee of the Company's Board of Directors (the "Compensation Committee"). He is eligible to receive annual performance bonuses, based on a minimum target bonus of not less than 100% of Mr. Podolski's base salary, under the Company's annual incentive plan upon the achievement of individual and corporate performance goals to be established by the Compensation Committee. He is also eligible to participate in any long-term equity incentive programs established by the Company for its senior executives generally and all employee benefit plans or programs generally accorded to employees of the Company.

The Agreement provides for the following in the event of Mr. Podolski's termination by the Company without Cause or his resignation for Good Reason (both as defined in the Agreement), and upon his execution, and nonrevocation, of a prescribed release: (1) payment of a severance payment equal to an amount equal to three times the amount that results from (x) the sum of (i) Executive's annual base salary (at the rate in effect immediately before the date of termination) and target bonus for the fiscal year in which the termination occurs, (ii) Executive's annual base salary for each of the two calendar years immediately prior to the calendar year in which the termination date occurs and
(iii) the annual bonus that was actually earned and paid to Executive for the two fiscal years that immediately precede the fiscal year in which the termination date occurs, divided by (y) three; (2) if Executive timely elects continuation coverage under COBRA, the Company will reimburse Executive (or, if Executive dies following his termination date, Executive's spouse, if any), for the eighteen (18) month period following the date of termination, for the monthly COBRA cost of continued medical and dental coverage paid by Executive for himself, his spouse and his eligible dependents under the Company's medical and dental plans, less the amount that Executive would be required to contribute for medical and dental coverage if Executive were an active employee of the Company; (3) all outstanding stock options held by Executive which are not vested and exercisable as of the date of termination will become fully vested and exercisable on the date of termination and (4) all outstanding stock options held by the Executive on his date of termination will remain exercisable for the shorter of (x) a period of two (2) years from the date of termination or (y) the remaining term of the option. The severance payment described in clause (1) will be paid to Mr. Podolski in three equal installments following his last day of employment with the Company. The first installment will be paid, unless a delay is required by applicable law, within 60 days after the date of termination, the second installment within 60 days following the first anniversary of the date of termination and the third installment within 60 days following the second anniversary of the date of termination. Within 60 days following the date of termination the Company will contribute the full amount of the second and third installments of the severance payment to a rabbi trust. If Mr. Podolski dies following the date of termination, but prior to his receipt of the entire severance payment due as described in (1) above, any remaining balance owed to him will be paid to the personal representative of his estate.

Mr. Podolski is required under the Agreement to devote his full business time to the business and affairs of the Company, and he is restricted in his ability to compete directly or indirectly with the Company during the term of the Agreement and for a period thereafter.

The foregoing summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
