(e) Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
On November 29, 2011, CVR Energy, Inc. (the Company) and Edward Morgan, Chief
Financial Officer of the Company entered into an Amendment to Second Amended and Restated
Employment Agreement (the Amendment), which amends the Second Amended and Restated
Employment Agreement dated as of January 1, 2011 between the Company and Mr. Morgan (as amended by
the Amendment, the Employment Agreement). Pursuant to the Amendment, Mr. Morgan has
agreed to continue to serve as Chief Financial Officer of the Company for up to 120 days (or such
earlier date as the Company may determine in its discretion) following the date the Company names a
successor chief financial officer (Successor CFO). Upon the date selected by the Company
on which the Successor CFO takes over as Chief Financial Officer of the Company (the
Transition Date), Mr. Morgan will become Executive Vice President of Investor Relations
of the Company (EVP of IR). The term of the Employment Agreement will continue until the
earlier of December 31, 2012 or the termination or resignation of Mr. Morgans employment in
accordance with the Employment Agreement.
Effective upon the Transition Date and continuing for the remaining term of the Employment
Agreement while Mr. Morgan serves as EVP of IR (such period, the Post-Transition Period),
Mr. Morgan will receive a base salary at the annual rate of $275,000 and will be eligible to
receive an annual cash bonus for the portion of the year during the Post-Transition Period at a
target rate of 40% of his annual base salary. Pursuant to the Amendment, Mr. Morgan will receive an award of restricted common stock on the
last payroll date of 2011 with a fair market value on the grant date equal to $165,000, subject to
the terms of the award agreement. The restricted common stock will vest in one-third annual
increments beginning on the first anniversary of the grant date. If, during the Post-Transition Period, Mr. Morgans
employment is terminated by the Company without cause and other than for disability (as such terms
are defined in the Employment Agreement) or Mr. Morgan resigns, then Mr. Morgan is entitled to
receive (among other benefits described in the Employment Agreement) accelerated vesting of all
unvested shares of restricted common stock then held by Mr. Morgan, including the December 2011 award.
The description of the Amendment herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full
text of the Amendment attached hereto, which is incorporated herein by reference.
