5.02   Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
(d) On September 12, 2011, Nicole G. Small and John A. Beckert were each elected as a director of A. H. Belo Corporation (“A. H. Belo” or the “Company”). Ms. Small and Mr. Beckert will serve on each of the Company’s three standing committees — the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee, and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. A copy of the press release announcing their election is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1.
Ms. Small’s and Mr. Beckert’s initial term will expire at the Company’s 2012 annual meeting of shareholders, when each will be eligible for re-election by the shareholders. Consistent with the Company’s non-employee director compensation arrangements, Ms. Small and Mr. Beckert will receive a prorated amount of the A. H. Belo directors’ annual $112,000 retainer package, or approximately $76,405 for the balance of the service year, one-half of which will be paid in cash. The remainder will be paid in time-based restricted stock units. Neither Ms. Small nor Mr. Beckert has any family relationship with any other director or executive officer of the Company and, other than as a current A. H. Belo director, neither Ms. Small nor Mr. Beckert has any other material relationship with the Company.
