Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On December 6, 2010, A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts, Inc. (the “A.C. Moore”) entered into an employment letter (the “letter agreement”) with Rodney Schriver, Vice President, Chief Accounting Officer, Controller and Treasurer.
Pursuant to the letter agreement, Mr. Schriver receives a base salary of $205,500 per year and is eligible to participate in A.C. Moore’s annual and long-term incentive plans. On October 5, 2011, Mr. Schriver will be entitled to receive a special cash retention award equal to 45% of his base salary, or $92,497.50, less tax and withholdings. If A.C. Moore terminates his employment without cause (as defined in the letter agreement), Mr. Schriver is entitled to receive base salary through the sixth-month anniversary of the termination date. In the event Mr. Schriver remains unemployed after six months from his termination date, he will receive an additional month of base salary for each month he remains unemployed, up to a maximum of six additional months. Mr. Schriver is required to actively seek employment after the termination date in order to receive the additional monthly severance. If he is terminated without cause in the six-month period following a change of control (as defined in the letter agreement), Mr. Schriver will receive a cash lump sum payment equal to six months’ base salary at his then current rate. The letter agreement requires that Mr. Schriver enter into a release of all claims in order to receive any payments following termination of employment without cause.
Mr. Schriver’s letter agreement contains restrictive covenants relating to confidentiality, non-disparagement, non-competition and non-solicitation. The non-competition and non-solicitation prohibition is for 12 months following the termination of his employment.
The foregoing summary of the agreement with Mr. Schriver is not intended to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the agreement, which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02.
