The following summaries are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Letter Agreement, the RSU Agreement, the CIC Agreement and the Continued Employment and Separation Agreement (each of which as defined below), copies of each of which are attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, 10.3 and 10.4, respectively.
Letter Agreement: In connection with Mr. Fishers appointment as Chief Executive Officer of Enova, Cash America has entered into a letter agreement detailing Mr. Fishers employment and compensation package (the Letter Agreement). In connection with his employment, Mr. Fisher will receive an annual base salary of $525,000, and he will be eligible to participate in or receive awards under, as applicable, Enovas short-and long-term incentive plans.
Mr. Fisher will also be eligible to participate in other Enova health and welfare benefit plans made generally available to officers and employees of Enova, and he will be eligible to participate in Enovas 401(k) Savings Plan, Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan, Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan and Severance Pay Plan for Executives. Mr. Fisher will also receive a one-time award of restricted stock units and has entered into a change-in-control agreement, each pursuant to the Letter Agreement and as further described below.
RSU Award: Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, Mr. Fisher received a one-time grant of 14,260 restricted stock units under the Cash America International, Inc. First Amended and Restated 2004 Long-Term Incentive Plan, as amended. The number of restricted stock units that were granted was determined by dividing $600,000 by the average stock price during the 20 trading days ending on the day before the grant date, which was January 29, 2013. The restricted stock unit award agreement (the RSU Agreement) provides that 100% of the restricted stock units will vest on the 2nd anniversary of the grant date or earlier if Enova were to become a publicly-traded company. The RSU Agreement contains standard vesting requirements and other terms and conditions for restricted stock unit grants to executive officers, including a clawback provision that allows Cash America to recoup all or some of the restricted stock units under certain circumstances in the event that there is a material restatement of Cash Americas financial results.
CIC Agreement: In addition, pursuant to the Letter Agreement Mr. Fisher entered into an Executive Change-in-Control Severance and Restrictive Covenant Agreement (CIC Agreement) on January 29, 2013. The CIC Agreement provides that if Mr. Fishers employment is terminated within 24 months after a change-in-control of Cash America, as defined in the CIC Agreement, without cause or if he voluntarily terminates his employment with good reason (including a reduction in his duties or compensation or relocation of place of employment), then he will be entitled to: earned and unpaid salary; a pro-rated portion of the target annual bonus under the existing bonus plan based on the number of months employed during the year; a lump sum equal to all accrued but unpaid vacation and paid time off; a lump sum equal to two times his annual salary; a lump sum equal to two times the greater of (i) the target bonus for the year, or (ii) the actual bonus for the preceding year; immediate vesting of any outstanding unvested cash-based and equity-based long-term incentive awards; continued medical and health care benefits for 24 months, consisting of the portion of COBRA premiums that exceed the portion of health care premiums that current employees are required to pay (Company COBRA Premiums) to be paid over an 18-month period and an amount equal to (i) six times the first monthly Company COBRA Premium and (ii) 24 times Cash Americas first monthly supplemental executive health care premium, paid in a lump sum; and executive placement services from an executive search/placement firm of up to $50,000. The CIC Agreement also contains certain non-competition, non-solicitation and non-disclosure covenants in addition to a clawback provision that allows Cash America to recoup all or some of the payments made under certain circumstances in the event that there is a material restatement of Cash Americas financial results.
Continued Employment and Separation Agreement: On September 29, 2013, Cash America entered into an agreement with Mr. Ho detailing the terms of his separation from Enova, which will occur on March 29, 2013 (the Continued Employment and Separation Agreement). The Continued Employment and Separation Agreement provides Mr. Ho with two years of base salary continuation to be paid through March 2015 in the aggregate amount of $860,000 (before any applicable withholding), two years of medical benefits and a lump sum cash payment of $24,808 to cover vacation pay less the value of any vacation taken prior to separation. The Continued Employment and Separation Agreement includes certain releases and non-disclosure, non-solicitation and non-competition covenants, among other terms and conditions. In addition, the Continued Employment and Separation Agreement does not provide for acceleration or future payment of any outstanding unvested short-or long-term incentive awards. The Continued Employment and Separation Agreement provides Mr. Ho with a seven-day period from both January 29, 2013 (the date the agreement was signed) and March 29, 2013 (the date of Mr. Hos separation from Enova on which he is required to sign a separate release agreement) within which to revoke the Continued Employment and Separation Agreement.
