Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On February 27, 2019, NCR Corporation (NCR or the Company) took the following action with respect to an executive long-term incentive compensation plan in which certain named executive officers of the Company were participants.
(e) Termination of the NCR Corporation Economic Profit Plan effective February 27, 2019
On February 27, 2019, the Compensation and Human Resource Committee of the Companys Board of Directors (Committee) terminated the NCR Corporation Economic Profit Plan (EPP). The EPP was a long-term incentive compensation plan for Company executives selected by the Committee, which allowed participants to share in a portion of certain economic profit that they helped create. The Committee ceased granting new EPP awards in 2016; however, a portion of previously earned EPP awards credited to participant accounts were subject to annual payout in August of each year, so long as the Company passed a cash flow test set forth in the EPP. In addition, certain amounts were payable from participant accounts upon a qualifying termination of employment as described in the EPP.
Effective on the EPP termination date and in accordance with federal tax rules, all participants actively employed by the Company on the EPP termination date became fully vested in their account balances and will receive, as soon as reasonably practicable after February 28, 2020, any then remaining account balances in a single lump sum final distribution. Until the date of such final distributions, regularly scheduled EPP distributions will be made in the normal course (for example, the regular distributions scheduled under the EPP to be made in August 2019 will be paid at that time, subject to the terms of the EPP). Further, any EPP balances payable pursuant to retirement or other separation agreements in effect on the EPP termination date will continue to be paid at such times and in such amounts as provided under the terms of such agreements.
On the EPP termination date, William R. Nuti and Robert P. Fishman were the only current named executive officers who were EPP participants with account balances thereunder. Mr. Nuti previously retired from employment as the Companys Chief Executive Officer and from service as a member of the NCR Board, and was appointed to the honorary position of Chairman Emeritus of the NCR Board and was retained on a part-time basis as a consultant for transition and continuing advisory services, effective April 30, 2018. His EPP account balance ($1,158,549 as of the EPP termination date) will continue to be paid at the times and in the amounts provided under the terms of his retirement agreement, a copy of which was included as Exhibit 10.6 to the Companys Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2018 that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 3, 2018. Mr. Fishmans account balance ($653,679 as of the EPP termination date) will be distributed in accordance with the process noted above for participants actively employed by the Company on the EPP termination date.
Additional information about the benefit plan described in this Item 5.02, and other plans and programs generally available to the Companys directors and executive officers, is included in the Companys Proxy Statement for the 2018 annual meeting of stockholders filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 14, 2018.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
