On August 9, 2022, First Financial Bankshares, Inc. (the "Company") renewed, effective August 1, 2022, its Executive Recognition Agreement (each, an "Agreement") with each of the following executive officers of the Company (each, an "Employee"):




F. Scott Dueser

Chairman, President and CEO

David W. Bailey

Executive Vice President, Commercial Banking

Ronald D. Butler, II

Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer

James R. Gordon

Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer

T. Luke Longhofer

Executive Vice President, Chief Lending Officer

J. Kyle McVey

Executive Vice President, Chief Accounting Officer

John Ruzicka

Executive Vice President, Chief Information Officer

Kirk W. Thaxton

Chairman, President and CEO, First Financial Trust and Asset Management Company, N.A.


A copy of the form of Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference, and the following summary of the Agreement is qualified entirely by reference to the text of the Agreement.


Each Employee’s prior Executive Recognition Agreement, if applicable, expired on July 1, 2022, and was replaced by the Agreement.


The term of the Agreement commences effective August 1, 2022, and continues until the earliest to occur of (a) the Employee’s death, disability or retirement, (b) the termination of the Employee’s employment with the Company prior to a “change in control” (as defined in the Agreement) of the Company, or (c) August 1, 2024. Pursuant to the Agreement, if a change in control of the Company occurs during the term of the Agreement, the Agreement shall continue in effect for a period of two years from the date of any such change in control of the Company; and further, if a second change in control occurs within a period of two years from the date of the first change in control, the Agreement shall continue in effect for a period of two years from the date of the second change in control of the Company. If any benefit accrues and remains unpaid at the time the Agreement would otherwise have terminated, the Agreement will remain in effect until such benefit is paid in full solely for the purpose of permitting the Employee to enforce the full payment of such benefit.


The Agreement provides that if a change in control of the Company occurs, the Employee shall be entitled to benefits (described below) upon the subsequent termination of the Employee’s employment during the term of the Agreement, unless such termination is (a) because of the Employee’s death, disability or retirement, (b) by the Company “for cause” (as defined in the Agreement), or (c) by the Employee other than for “good reason” (as defined in the Agreement).


The Agreement also provides that if, within twenty-four months following a change in control of the Company, the Company terminates the Employee for any reason other than for cause, death, disability or retirement, or the Employee terminates his employment for good reason, then the Company shall pay or provide to the Employee, no later than the 15th day of the third month following the Employee’s date of termination, without regard to any contrary provisions of any applicable employee benefit plan, the following: (a) three-hundred percent (300%) in the case of Mr. Dueser's annual base salary payable by the Company immediately preceding the Date of Termination or two-hundred percent (200%) in the case of other executive officer's annual base salary payable by the Company immediately preceding the Date of Termination; (b) the targeted amount of the Employee's bonus prorated through the date of termination; and (c) a lump sum payment of the Employee's accrued but unused paid time off.


Notwithstanding the foregoing, if an Employee is a “key employee” within the meaning of Section 416(i) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and the Employee has the right to receive a distribution as a result thereof, then the distribution to such key Employee upon termination of employment shall not commence earlier than six months following the date of termination.



Under the Agreement, if any payments or benefits to the Employee would constitute a “parachute payment” and would be subject to excise tax, then a calculation shall be made comparing (a) the net benefit to the Employee, after payment of such excise tax and all other federal, state, local, or foreign income, and employment taxes, to (b) the net benefit to the Employee if payments are limited to the extent necessary to avoid being subject to the excise tax. Only if the amount calculated under (a) above is less than the amount under (b) above will the payments be reduced to the minimum extent necessary to ensure that no portion of the payment to the Employee is subject to the excise tax. As of the date of this report, based on projected parachute payment amounts, no Employee would incur an excise tax and all parachute payments per the “net benefit” calculation would be fully deductible by the Company.
