ITEM 5.02. DEPARTURE OF DIRECTORS OR CERTAIN OFFICERS; ELECTION OF DIRECTORS; APPOINTMENT OF CERTAIN
OFFICERS; COMPENSATORY ARRANGEMENTS OF CERTAIN OFFICERS.
On November 19, 2012, Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC
(Oncor) accepted the early exercise of all outstanding stock appreciation rights (SARs) issued to date pursuant to Oncors Stock Appreciation Rights Plan (the SARs Plan) pursuant to the terms described below.
The early exercise was permitted by the Board of Directors of Oncor (the Board) pursuant to the provision of the SARs Plan that permits the Board to accelerate the vesting and exercisability of SARs.
The early exercise of SARs entitles each participant in the SARs Plan, including Oncors named executive officers
(NEOs), to: (1) an exercise payment (the Exercise Payment) equal to the number of SARs exercised multiplied by the difference between $14.54 and the base price of the SARs (as stated in the award letter for each SARs
grant); and (2) the accrual of interest on all dividends declared to date with respect to the SARs, and no further dividend accruals. Additionally, each NEO currently employed by Oncor has agreed to defer payment of a portion of his Exercise
Payment until the earlier of November 7, 2016 or the occurrence of an event triggering SAR exercisability pursuant to Section 5(c)(ii) of the SARs Plan. A copy of the SARs Plan was filed as exhibit 10(r) to our Annual Report on Form 10-K
for the year ended December 31, 2008, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 3, 2009.
result of the early exercise of the SARs, the NEOs are entitled to the following Exercise Payments, less withholding for applicable taxes: Robert S. Shapard, Chairman and Chief Executive, $17,025,000; David M. Davis, Senior Vice President and
Chief Financial Officer, $2,724,000; Don J. Clevenger, Senior Vice President, External Affairs, $2,724,000; Charles W. Jenkins, former Senior Vice President (retired April 2012), $2,832,960; and E. Allen Nye, Jr., Senior Vice President, General
Counsel and Secretary, $1,041,506. In addition, after the withholding of all applicable taxes, the following NEOs have agreed to defer from their Exercise Payments the following amounts, to be paid at a later date as described above:
Mr. Shapard, $2,957,400; Mr. Davis, $473,184; Mr. Clevenger, $473,184; and Mr. Nye, $147,966. The Exercise Payments for each NEO other than Mr. Nye are based on a base price of $10.00 per SAR, and Mr. Nyes
Exercise Payment is based on a base price of $12.25 per SAR. Additionally, Oncor will begin to accrue interest on dividends for the following NEOs in the following amounts: Mr. Shapard, $5,104,817; Mr. Davis, $816,771;
Mr. Clevenger, $816,771; and Mr. Nye, $250,649.
ITEM 8.01. OTHER EVENTS.
On November 19, 2012, Oncor accepted the early exercise of all outstanding SARs issued to date pursuant to Oncors Director
Stock Appreciation Rights Plan (the Directors SARs Plan) on terms identical to those offered participants in the SARs Plan. Exercise Payments under the Directors SARs Plan will be made using a base price of $10.00 per SAR,
the base price of all currently outstanding SARs issued under the Directors SARs Plan.
Oncor anticipates that the
aggregate Exercise Payments paid to participants in the SARs Plan and the Directors SARs Plan will amount to approximately $64 million, and that it will begin to accrue interest on approximately $18.1 million in aggregate dividends.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
