Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Appointment of New Chief Financial Officer

On November 5, 2019, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (the "Company") appointed Javier H. Idrovo as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, effective December 2, 2019 (the "Start Date"). Mr. Idrovo will succeed James M. Langrock.

Mr. Idrovo, age 51, has served as Chief Accounting Officer of The Hershey Company, a global producer of chocolate, sweets, mints, gum and other snacks, since August 2015, with responsibilities including all aspects of the accounting, tax and treasury functions, including external reporting, operation of internal controls over financial reporting, and financial reporting. Prior to becoming Chief Accounting Officer, Mr. Idrovo served as Senior Vice President, Finance and Planning from 2011 to August 2015 and as Senior Vice President, Strategy and Business Development from 2008 to 2011. Prior to joining The Hershey Company, Mr. Idrovo served in various roles of increasing responsibility at Dole Food Company, a global producer and marketer of fruit and vegetables, from 2001 to 2008, most recently serving as President of Dole Packaged Foods from 2006 to 2008. Prior to that, Mr. Idrovo served in various roles of increasing responsibility at The Boston Consulting Group, Inc. from 1990 to 1993 and from 1995 to 2001.

In connection with Mr. Idrovo's appointment, the Company and Mr. Idrovo entered into an Offer Letter (the "Offer Letter") that provides for an annual base salary of $550,000. Mr. Idrovo will be eligible to receive annual incentive awards, with a target award for fiscal year 2020 of 85% of his annual base salary, prorated based on the Start Date. Mr. Idrovo will also receive an award of performance share units under the Company's 2019-2021 Long-Term Incentive Plan (the "2019-2021 LTIP"), with a target of 100,000 shares (the "LTIP PSU Award"), representing Mr. Idrovo's long-term incentive opportunity for fiscal years 2020 and 2021. The LTIP PSU Award will vest based on the achievement of pre-established 3-year compound annual Total Shareholder Return goals over the performance period from November 6, 2018 to November 6, 2021, mirroring the performance goals and other terms and conditions for awards made to other executive officers under the 2019-2021 LTIP. Total shares earned under the LTIP PSU Award will range from 0% to 300% of the target number of shares. Beginning in fiscal year 2022, Mr. Idrovo will be eligible to receive additional long-term incentive awards.

The Offer Letter also provides for the following one-time compensation, intended to recognize the compensation Mr. Idrovo is forfeiting from his current employer to join the Company:


•Signing award of restricted stock units, valued at $1,300,000 based on the
closing price of the Company's common stock on the Start Date, vesting in two
equal annual installments.
•Signing award of performance share units, with the target number of shares
equal to $1,000,000 divided by the closing price of the Company's common stock
on the Start Date (the "Sign-On PSU Award"). The performance goals and other
terms and conditions of the Sign-On PSU Award will mirror those of the LTIP PSU
Award. Total shares earned under the Sign-On PSU Award will range from 0% to
300% of the target number of shares.
•Signing bonus of $500,000 in cash, subject to prorated repayment in the event
that, within the first 24 months of his employment, Mr. Idrovo voluntarily
terminates his employment or is terminated for cause, as determined by the
Compensation Committee of the Board in good faith.

Pursuant to the terms of the Offer Letter, if the Company terminates Mr. Idrovo's employment without cause, as determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board in good faith, Mr. Idrovo will be entitled to receive severance in an amount equal to one times his base salary in effect at the time of termination and one times his target annual incentive award for the year in which the termination occurs, payable over 12 months following termination.

Mr. Idrovo will receive a Change in Control Agreement on the Company's standard form, providing for severance if his employment is terminated without Cause or for Good Reason (as those terms are defined in the agreement) within 12 months following a Change in Control (as defined in the agreement). In that event, the amount of severance would be two times the sum of Mr. Idrovo's base salary and target annual incentive award, payable over two years following termination, subject to the execution of a release and certain other conditions.

A copy of the press release announcing Mr. Idrovo's appointment is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

Departure of James M. Langrock

On November 7, 2019, the Company announced that James M. Langrock, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, is being succeeded by Javier Idrovo effective December 2, 2019. Mr. Langrock will remain at the Company through December 31, 2019 to assist with the transition of his responsibilities and support other Company initiatives.

In connection with his departure, Mr. Langrock is expected to enter into a separation agreement, pursuant to which he will be entitled to receive (1) cash severance of $1,650,000, paid in bi-weekly installments during the 12 months following his departure and (2) health and welfare benefits for a period of 18 months. In addition, in accordance with Mr. Langrock's restricted stock award agreements, the vesting of 17,202 shares of restricted stock will accelerate upon his departure. Mr. Langrock's performance share units under the 2019-2021 LTIP will be forfeited.
