Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory
On April 12, 2021, Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) appointed Mr. Leslie Campbell and Ms. Joan Chow, each an independent, highly qualified, and diverse background candidate to the Company’s Board of Directors (the
“Board”). Concurrently with these appointments, Mr. Norman S. Matthews resigned his position as a director of the Company in order to pursue other opportunities and not because of any disagreement with the Company on matters relating to its operations, policies or practices.
Mr. Campbell and Ms. Chow were appointed to the Board in response to shareholder feedback and in furtherance of the Board’s commitment to advancing diversity and gender inclusion. The Board believes that the Company and its stakeholders are benefited by a highly skilled Board with a significant variety of expertise, experiences, and diversity across race, gender, and ethnicity. Mr. Campbell and Ms. Chow will each serve as Class I directors, until the earlier of the annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders for such directorship class or until his or her successor is duly elected and qualified. Following
the foregoing changes to the Board, the Company no longer has any vacancies on the Board.
Mr. Campbell and Ms. Chow are independent directors as defined under the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange. There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Campbell and Ms. Chow and any other
persons pursuant to which they were selected as directors of the Company. There are no related person transactions (within the meaning of Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K) between Mr. Campbell and Ms. Chow and the Company.
In consideration for their service to the Company, Mr. Campbell and Ms. Chow will receive ordinary director compensation consistent with that received by the Company's other non-employee directors as disclosed in the Company’s proxy statement filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 18, 2020.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, each registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
