Second Amendment to Clarke Amended and Restated Employment Agreement
On April 24, 2019 (the “Execution Date”), Navistar International Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Second Amendment to Amended and Restated Employment and Services Agreement (the “Second Amendment”) with the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Troy A. Clarke. Mr. Clarke also serves as executive Chairman of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”). The Second Amendment, effective as of April 22, 2019 (the "Effective Date"), modifies certain terms and extends the expiration date of Mr. Clarke’s Amended and Restated Employment and Services Agreement with the Company dated April 22, 2016 (“the 2016 A&R Agreement”), as amended by the Amendment to the 2016 A&R Agreement dated April 16, 2018 (the “First Amendment” and together, the “Agreement”), which contained an expiration date of April 22, 2019. The following is a description of the material terms of the Second Amendment, which description is qualified by reference to a copy of the Second Amendment attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
Term of Employment. The term of Mr. Clarke’s employment under the Agreement is extended from April 22, 2019 to April 22, 2020, resulting in a total term of four years (the “Services Term”), unless it is terminated earlier by the Company or by Mr. Clarke, as described in the Agreement.
Compensation. Mr. Clarke’s compensation under the Second Amendment is as follows:
Base Salary. Mr. Clarke’s annual base salary remains unchanged at $1,050,000.
Annual Incentive. Mr. Clarke’s target annual incentive award and maximum annual incentive award remain unchanged at 125% of base salary and two times the target annual incentive award, respectively. For the fiscal year in which the Services Term ends, he will be entitled to a pro rata portion of the annual incentive bonus paid in a lump sum even if he is not employed by the Company on the payment date.
Long-Term Incentive. For the 2019 fiscal year, Mr. Clarke was granted long-term incentive awards on the Execution Date in the form of (i) an award of 46,955 stock-settled restricted stock units, (ii) 66,747 non-qualified stock options at $35.14 and (iii) a performance-based restricted cash unit award with a target amount of $2,750,000 (the “2019 LTI Awards”), in each case subject to the terms and conditions of the Company’s 2013 Performance Incentive Plan (or any successor plan) and applicable award agreements in the form that applies to other senior executives’ 2019 long-term incentive awards generally (including with respect to performance goals); provided, however, that (i) the 2019 LTI Awards, like Mr. Clarke’s 2018 LTI Awards, will be payable on his “Qualified Retirement” and (ii) “Qualified Retirement” means, with respect to Mr. Clarke, a termination from employment with the Company that occurs for any reason after he has (A) attained age 62 and (B) completed five years of continuous service.
Terminations for any Reason. If Mr. Clarke’s employment and service with the Company terminates for any reason, including death or disability, Mr. Clarke will be entitled to: (i) any unpaid base salary accrued up to the Date of Termination, (ii) any unpaid, but earned, annual incentive for any completed fiscal year, (iii) pay for accrued but unused vacation, (iv) any benefits or compensation as provided under the terms of the employee benefit and compensation agreements and plans under which he has a vested right, including those that vest as a consequence of the termination of employment, and (v) reimbursement for unreimbursed business expenses.
Post-Services Term Agreement. Following expiration of the Services Term, if requested by the Company’s Board of Directors, Mr. Clarke agrees to serve as executive Chairman of the Company’s Board of Directors for a period of not more than two years. During such period, his compensation will be equal to the cash equivalent of the non-employee director cash and equity retainer. Vesting of equity awards and performance cash incentives outstanding following Mr. Clarke’s termination of employment will continue regardless of whether he has been requested by the Company’s Board of Directors to serve as executive Chairman following the Services Term, subject only to his continued compliance with non-competition and non-solicitation covenants.
Limited Effect. Except as specifically modified in the Second Amendment, the Agreement continues in full force and effect.
