TrustCo Bank Corp NY
On November 20, 2012, the board of directors of TrustCo Bank Corp NY (“TrustCo”) approved Amendment No. 2 to the TrustCo Bank Corp NY 2010 Directors Equity Incentive Plan (the “Director Plan”) to authorize the award of restricted stock units. The plan provides for all restricted stock units to be settled, if and when they vest, by a cash payment determined by reference to the then-current fair market value of TrustCo common stock. A copy of the amendment accompanies this filing as Exhibit 10(a).
Also on November 20, 2012, the Compensation Committee of the TrustCo board of directors, and the full board of directors, approved awards of incentive stock options, restricted stock units and performance shares to eligible employees, including its named executive officers, under the TrustCo Bank Corp NY 2010 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended (the “Incentive Plan”). The board also approved awards of restricted stock units to members of the board under the Director Plan. The exercise price of all options granted was $5.17, the closing price of the Company’s common shares on November 20, 2012. The options awarded to employees and officers of TrustCo vest in equal amounts over a five year period, with all options being fully vested as of November 20, 2017 and expiring on November 20, 2022. The form of option award agreement entered into with each named executive officer was substantially the same as the award agreements previously disclosed by TrustCo.
The awards of performance shares under the Incentive Plan are subject to both a time-based vesting condition and a performance goals condition. These conditions are described in more detail in the Performance Share Award Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10(b). Each such award agreement entered into by TrustCo’s named executive officers was substantially the same.
The periods of restriction applicable to the restricted stock unit awards will lapse as to all units awarded under either the Incentive Plan or the Director Plan on November 20, 2015. The Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement under the Incentive Plan is attached hereto as Exhibit 10(c), and Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement under the Director Plan is attached hereto as Exhibit 10(d). Each such award agreement entered into by TrustCo’s named executive officers under the Incentive Plan and by TrustCo’s directors under the Director Plan was substantially the same.
Exhibit 99 hereto describes the amount of the awards to each named executive officer and director.
Please refer to the discussion of the awards to members of the board of directors under Item 5.02 above.
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 thereunto duly authorized.
