CERNER CORP : Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders, Financial Statements and Exhibits (form 8-K)

05/31/2022 | 07:38am EDT

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


Gerald E. Bisbee, Jr., PhD retired from the Board of Directors (the "Board") of
Cerner Corporation ("Cerner," the "Company" or "our"), effective immediately
prior to Cerner's 2022 Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on May 26, 2022 (the
"2022 Annual Meeting"). Immediately thereafter, the size of the Board was
decreased to nine members.

As reported below, at the 2022 Annual Meeting, Cerner's shareholders approved
the amendment and restatement of the Cerner Corporation 2011 Omnibus Equity
Incentive Plan (as amended and restated, the "Omnibus Plan"). A summary of the
Omnibus Plan is included in Proposal #5 of Cerner's definitive proxy statement
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 11, 2022 (the "2022
Proxy Statement"). The description below of the Omnibus Plan is qualified in its
entirety by reference to the full text of the plan filed herewith as Exhibit
10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

Since 2011, the Omnibus Plan has provided an important incentive to (i) create
continued alignment of Cerner's vision and mission between eligible participants
and shareholders, (ii) attract, hire and retain quality associates in an
industry that has a very competitive market for talented employees, and (iii)
meet the Company's goal of establishing a broad-based, long-term ownership focus
for the Company's high performing associates. We believe that operation of the
Omnibus Plan is important in attracting, retaining and motivating key
associates, consultants, and non-employee Directors in a competitive labor
market, which is essential to our long-term growth and success. The terms of the
Omnibus Plan provide for the granting of stock options, stock appreciation
rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, performance shares,
performance units, performance grants and bonus shares, some of which may be
paid in cash, shares of Cerner common stock, or a combination of cash and shares
of Cerner common stock. Eligible participants under the Omnibus Plan include key
associates, consultants and non-employee directors. The Omnibus Plan is
administered by the Compensation Committee (or such other committee as the Board
of Directors may determine), and such Compensation Committee has the sole
discretion to determine who may be granted awards under the Omnibus Plan, the
size and types of such awards and the terms and conditions of such awards.

The amendments to the Omnibus Plan:


•Increase the maximum number of shares of Cerner common stock authorized for
issuance under the Omnibus Plan by 5,000,000 shares. Subject to certain
adjustments, the maximum number of shares of Cerner common stock that may be
delivered pursuant to awards under the Omnibus Plan following the amendments is
the sum of 59,300,000 shares, plus (i) that number of Shares available for
issuance under the Cerner Corporation 2004 Long-Term Incentive Plan G (the "Plan
G") as of May 27, 2011, and (ii) that number of Shares subject to awards under
Plan G that were outstanding as of May 27, 2011 and that, on or after May 27,
2011, expire or are cancelled or terminated without the issuance of shares
thereunder.

•Extended the term of the Omnibus Plan to May 25, 2032.
