RAVEN INDUSTRIES INC FILES (8-K) Disclosing Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exhibits
(Edgar Glimpses Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On March 29, 2014, the Company's Compensation Committee approved annual awards of non-qualified stock options and performance-based restricted stock units ("RSUs") to executive officers and key employees under its Long-Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP") as of April 1, 2014. Under the LTIP for 2014, each executive officer was granted two awards with a total targeted award level determined for each individual by the Compensation Committee. First, each individual received a non-qualified stock option, with the value of the stock option equal to one-half of the targeted award value. Second, each individual received performance-based RSUs with a target level equal to one-half of the targeted award value. The grants of stock options and the target levels of the RSU awards to the named executive officers are set forth on Exhibit 99.1.
The stock option granted to each executive officer has a term of five years and vests in four equal annual installments, with the first installment vesting one year after the date of grant. The stock options vest early in the event of retirement or a change in control. The stock options have an exercise price of $32.75 per share, equal to the closing price of the common stock on the business day prior to the date of grant.
The RSU awards represent the right to receive shares of common stock on the vesting date, generally the third anniversary of the award date. The number of shares that vest will be based on achievement of specified performance goals over a three-year period. The performance goals for the RSUs granted under the LTIP for 2014 are based on the Company's return on equity for fiscal years 2015 through 2017. The RSU awards specify the number of shares that will vest at target performance. The shares that vest at the minimum and maximum levels of performance will be equal to 50% and 150% of the target level, respectively, with vested amounts for performance between those levels to be prorated.
Any RSUs that do not vest on the vesting date will be forfeited. Also, the RSUs will be forfeited if the participant's employment with the Company terminates prior to the vesting date, except upon retirement, termination by the Company without cause or change in control. In the event of retirement or termination by the Company without cause prior to the third anniversary of the award date, the RSUs will vest on the three-year anniversary of the award date based on achievement of performance goals, with the number of vested shares prorated based on the number of months served before the date of retirement or termination without cause during the 36-month vesting period. Upon a change in control, the RSUs become 100% vested at target level.
If the participant remains employed on a dividend record date for Common Stock, dividend equivalents will be paid in the form of additional RSUs on the regular quarterly dividend payment dates. The RSUs received under dividend equivalents will be paid out in shares at the same time as any related vested RSUs.
