(b)    Pursuant to a Separation Agreement (the “Separation Agreement”), dated as of December 12, 2013, between Farmer Bros. Co., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and Hortensia R. Gómez, the Company’s Vice President and Controller, Ms. Gómez’ employment and service in all offices and other capacities held with the Company and its subsidiaries shall terminate as of January 24, 2014. Ms. Gómez has agreed to provide transition support to the Company through that date. In connection with the separation, Ms. Gómez will be paid certain severance payments in the aggregate amount of $150,000 and will receive certain other separation benefits. The Separation Agreement, setting forth the terms of the severance, is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

(e)    On December 12, 2013, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company approved and adopted the following forms of equity award agreements for use in connection with the Farmer Bros. Co. Amended and Restated 2007 Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “Amended Equity Plan”) (which was previously filed as Exhibit 10.2 to the Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 11, 2013):

Form of Farmer Bros. Co. Amended and Restated 2007 Long-Term Incentive Plan Stock Option Grant Notice and Stock Option Agreement, the form of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2 and incorporated herein by reference; and

Form of Farmer Bros. Co. Amended and Restated 2007 Long-Term Incentive Plan Restricted Stock Award Grant Notice and Restricted Stock Award Agreement, the form of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.3 and incorporated herein by reference.
 
The names of individual participants, the number of options or shares of restricted stock granted to any individual, the date of grant and the vesting requirements, if any, for each individual grant will be determined at the time of each grant in accordance with the terms of the Amended Equity Plan.

On December 12, 2013, the Compensation Committee, in accordance with the provisions of the Amended Equity Plan, approved grants of non-qualified stock options to certain of the Company's employees, including the following grants to the Company's Named Executive Officers:
