On January 23, 2013, the Board of Directors of Delta Apparel, Inc. (the "Company") appointed Steven E. Cochran, 45, to serve as President and Chief Operating Officer. In his capacity as President and Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Cochran will continue to report directly to Robert W. Humphreys, the Company's Chief Executive Officer.
Mr. Cochran joined the Company in 2010 as President of Delta Activewear. Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Cochran served as President of the Image Apparel Division of VF Corporation and held a variety of positions with Cintas Corporation, a provider of career apparel.
There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Cochran and any other person pursuant to which he was selected as an officer of the Company. There are no family relationships between Mr. Cochran and any of the Company's other directors or executive officers. There are no transactions in which Mr. Cochran has an interest requiring disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
In connection with Mr. Cochran's promotion, Mr. Cochran and the Company entered into an Amendment to Employment and Non-Solicitation Agreement, effective as of January 28, 2013 (the "Amendment"), which amends the Employment and Non-Solicitation Agreement entered into between Mr. Cochran and the Company as of December 31, 2012 (the "Agreement"). The Agreement was previously filed as Exhibit 10.2 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on January 3, 2013. The Amendment provides that Mr. Cochran will serve as President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company, reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, and his annual base salary will increase to $410,000. In addition, the Amendment broadened the scope of Mr. Cochran's non-compete obligations to provide that during the time Mr Cochran is employed with the Company and, in certain circumstances, for a period of twelve months from the date of his termination from employment, Mr. Cochran is subject to non-competition restrictions. The terms and conditions of the Agreement remain unchanged other than as explicitly amended by the Amendment.
The foregoing description of the Amendment is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by the actual provisions of the Amendment, a copy of which is filed as an exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
