Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On March 3, 2021, the Board of Directors of Colfax Corporation (the “Company”) approved a comprehensive retention program in order to retain key employees, including its named executive officers (“NEOs”), to facilitate successful completion of the separation of the Company’s ESAB and DJO businesses into two independent, publicly-traded companies as announced by the Company on March 4, 2021 (the “Transaction”). As part of the retention program, each NEO entered into a retention agreement with the Company, and four NEOs received a grant of restricted stock units (“RSUs”), subject to the terms and conditions summarized below. Shyam Kambeyanda, Executive Vice President, President and CEO of ESAB, also entered into a change in control agreement as detailed below.

The material terms of the retention agreements include:

Retention Payment

 

   

For each NEO except Mr. Kambeyanda, the retention payment is earned if he is employed through the earlier of the 12 month anniversary of (a) the completion of the Transaction or (b) the End Date (as defined in the retention agreements). The retention payment will be paid in the first regular payroll following the earlier of the 6th month anniversary of the completion of the Transaction or the End Date. Mr. Hix may receive his retention payment at an earlier date.

 

   

Mr. Kambeyanda’s retention payment is earned if the Transaction is not completed by December 31, 2022 and he remains employed through December 31, 2022. The retention payment will be paid in the first regular payroll following December 31, 2022.

 

   

The retention payment for each NEO except Mr. Hix is an amount equal to such NEO’s 2021 annual base salary plus his 2021 annual cash bonus plan amount at target level. Mr. Hix’s retention payment is equal to his 2021 long term incentive target opportunity.

 

   

For each NEO except Mr. Kambeyanda, the retention payment is subject to a 50% clawback if the NEO is terminated for cause or separates without good reason or other than by mutual consent prior to the 12 month anniversary of the Transaction or the End Date.

 

   

If the NEO is terminated without cause, separates with good reason after the Transaction, separates by mutual consent, or dies, he or his estate will receive the retention payment.

Equity Grants and Treatment

 

   

Messrs. Trerotola, Pryor, Kambeyanda and Shirley received grants of RSUs in the amounts indicated below pursuant to the form of Retention RSU Agreement attached hereto. These grants vest ratably over a three-year period, subject to the NEO remaining in service on the relevant vesting dates, except in certain qualifying terminations. These awards accrue dividend equivalents when the Company pays dividends, which will be paid out in cash upon the vesting of the retention RSUs.

 

Name

  

Number of RSUs

Matthew Trerotola    72,009
Daniel Pryor    21,487
Shyam Kambeyanda    17,422
Brady Shirley    27,875

 

   

In addition, the retention agreements provide that, as of the date of the agreement, the terms of all outstanding and unvested options, RSUs and performance-based awards will be modified so that if the NEO separates with good reason following the Transaction, separates by mutual consent, dies or is terminated without cause, then his options and RSUs vest and performance-based awards are earned at pre-defined measurement dates and subject to payout at the end of the performance period.

The Company also entered into a change in control agreement with Mr. Kambeyanda. Pursuant to that agreement, if Mr. Kambeyanda experiences a qualifying termination between the date the Company executes a definitive agreement which would result in a change in control of the ESAB business or 90 days prior to the consummation of a change in control of the ESAB business (whichever is earlier), and 18 months after a change in control of the


ESAB business, Mr. Kambeyanda will receive an amount equal to two-hundred percent of his base salary and the greater of two-hundred percent of his target bonus pursuant to the Company’s Annual Incentive Plan for the last full fiscal year preceding the change in control termination or two-hundred percent of his target bonus pursuant to the Annual Incentive Plan for the full fiscal year in which the change in control termination occurs. The change in control agreement terminates (i) if it is mutually terminated, (ii) if Mr. Kambeyanda is terminated other than pursuant to a qualifying termination, or (iii) on December 31, 2022 if the Transaction has not been completed.

The retention agreements, form of Retention RSU Agreement, and change in control agreement with Mr. Kambeyanda are filed as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and the above summaries are qualified in their entirety by reference to the applicable exhibit.
