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

(e)           On December 30, 2009, AngioDynamics, Inc. (the “Company”) executed change in control agreements (“Change in Control Agreements”) with Jan Keltjens, D. Joseph Gersuk, Shawn P. McCarthy, Stephen J. McGill, Robert M. Rossell, William M. Appling and Harold C. Mapes, the terms of which had been previously approved by the Company’s Compensation Committee and Board of Directors.  Mr. Keltjens change in control agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.  The form of change in control agreement for the executives other than Mr. Keltjens is attached as Exhibit 10.2 and incorporated herein by reference (the “Form of Change in Control Agreement”).  In addition, on December 29, 2009, the Company notified the executives named above that their previous change in control agreements (the “Expiring Change in Control Agreements”) would not be renewed past December 31, 2009.  The Change in Control Agreements are similar to the Expiring Change in Control Agreements in all material respects, except for the elimination of a provision providing for the gross up of Excise Taxes  (as such term is used in Section 4999 of the United States Internal Revenue Code) under certain circumstances.  Under the Change in Control Agreements, the Company has no obligation to pay Excise Taxes on behalf of any executive or to make gross up payments to any executive as a result of an executive’s Excise Tax obligation.

Each Change in Control Agreement has an initial term ending December 31, 2010, and each year will automatically renew for an additional one year term, provided however, that if a change in control occurs the term shall expire no earlier than 12 calendar months after the calendar month in which such change in control occurs.  The Change in Control Agreement provides, among other things, that if a change in control occurs (generally, any of the following: (i) a person is or becomes a beneficial owner of more than 40% of the Company's voting securities (ii) the composition of a majority of the Company’s board changes (iii) the Company consummates a merger or consolidation or (iv) the shareholders approve a plan of liquidation or sale of substantially all of the Company's assets) during the term of the agreement, and the executive’s employment is terminated either by the Company or by the executive, other than (a) by the Company for cause, (b) by reason of death or disability, or (c) by the executive without good reason, such executive will receive a severance payment equal to (A) 2.5 times his annual base salary for Mr. Keltjens and 2 times the executive’s annual base salary for Messers. Gersuk, McCarthy, McGill, Rossell, Appling and Mapes, (B) 2.5 times the cash bonus he received for the prior fiscal year for Mr. Keltjens, (C) unpaid and prorated annual bonus amounts, (D) earned but unused vacation time and (E) title to such executive's (other than Mr. Keltjens) Company-owned or leased automobile.  

Payment made under the Change in Control Agreements is generally made in a lump sum within thirty days following termination subject to delay if required by Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code. 

The summary of Mr. Keltjens Change in Control Agreement and the Form of Change in Control Agreement above is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the attached exhibits to this Form 8-K.
