DOLLAR GENERAL CORP : Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Amendments to Articles of Inc. or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year, Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders, Financial Statements and Exhibits (form 8-K)

06/01/2021 | 06:03am EDT



Approval of the Dollar General Corporation 2021 Stock Incentive Plan

At the Annual Meeting of Shareholders of Dollar General Corporation (the "Company") held on May 26, 2021 (the "Annual Meeting"), the Company's shareholders approved the Dollar General Corporation 2021 Stock Incentive Plan (the "Plan"), which became effective on May 26, 2021. The Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") approved the Plan on March 16, 2021, subject to shareholder approval. Under the Plan, the maximum number of shares of the Company's common stock available for awards is 11,850,000, less any shares granted under the Dollar General Corporation Amended and Restated 2007 Stock Incentive Plan (the "Prior Plan") after March 16, 2021 and prior to May 26, 2021 (reduced on a one-for-one basis), resulting in 11,838,143 shares authorized for issuance under the Plan as of May 26, 2021.

Pursuant to and subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan, the Company may grant stock options, stock appreciation rights and other stock-based awards, including but not limited to restricted stock units and performance-based awards, to the Company's non-employee Board members and to key employees and consultants of the Company and certain of its subsidiaries. No awards may be granted under the Plan after May 25, 2031. The Plan is designed to attract and retain non-employee Board members, management and other key personnel and service providers, to motivate management personnel to achieve long-range goals, and to further align the interest of participants in the Plan with those of the Company's shareholders. It is not possible to determine specific amounts and types of awards that may be granted to eligible participants under the Plan because the grant and payment of such awards is subject to the discretion of the Compensation Committee of the Board.

The Plan replaces the Prior Plan. As of May 26, 2021, no new awards will be granted under the Prior Plan. Awards previously granted under the Prior Plan will remain outstanding in accordance with their terms, but none of the remaining shares of the Company's common stock authorized under the Prior Plan will be transferred or used under the Plan nor will any awards under the Prior Plan that are forfeited increase the shares available for awards under the Plan.

A brief summary of the material terms of the Plan was included as part of Proposal 4 on pages 52-61 in the Company's definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 1, 2021 (the "Proxy Statement"). The description of the Plan contained herein is a summary only, does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by the complete text of the Plan, which is included as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

Employment Agreement with Chief Executive Officer

On May 26, 2021, the Company entered into a new employment agreement, effective June 3, 2021 (the "Employment Agreement"), with Todd J. Vasos, Chief Executive Officer. The Employment Agreement replaces the employment agreement that was entered into on May 31, 2018 and effective June 3, 2018 between the Company and Mr. Vasos.

The initial term of the Employment Agreement extends until June 3, 2024, unless earlier terminated in accordance with the provisions of the Employment Agreement, subject to automatic year to year extensions unless the Company gives written notice within the time frame set forth in the Employment Agreement that no extension or further extension, as applicable, will occur or unless certain other conditions specified in the Employment Agreement occur. The Employment Agreement also commits to annually re-nominating Mr. Vasos during his tenure as Chief Executive Officer to serve on the Board, subject to election by the Company's shareholders.

The Employment Agreement provides for various customary business protection provisions, including non-competition, non-solicitation, non-interference, non-disparagement, and confidentiality and non-disclosure provisions, facilitates the implementation of the Company's clawback policy, and provides:

· for a minimum annual base salary of $1,350,000, which will be reviewed annually

   and may be increased from time to time in the sole discretion of the Board or
   its Compensation Committee.

· that incentive compensation shall be determined and paid under the Company's

   annual bonus program for senior executive officers, as it may be amended from
   time to time.

· that during Mr. Vasos's employment as Chief Executive Officer, he shall be

   entitled to reasonable non-exclusive use of the Company's plane or of a
   chartered aircraft at the Company's expense for his personal travel to and
   from, on the one hand, Boca Raton, Florida or Wilmington, North Carolina, and
   on the other hand, Nashville, Tennessee or such other point of origin or
   destination where he is required to be located for Company-related business
   purposes. Such personal travel may include family members traveling with Mr.
   Vasos and shall not exceed two round trips per calendar month (exclusive of any
   "deadhead" time) unless prior approval is granted by the Compensation
   Committee. Any income imputed to Mr. Vasos as a result of such personal travel
   shall be calculated in accordance with applicable Treasury Regulations as in
   effect from time to time, and Mr. Vasos shall be responsible for any tax
   liability he incurs as a result. He also shall be entitled to receive such
   other executive perquisites, fringe and other benefits as are provided
   generally to senior executive officers of the Company under any of the
   Company's plans and/or programs in effect from time to time.

· that Mr. Vasos (and, where applicable, his eligible dependents) shall be

eligible to participate in those various Company welfare benefit plans,

practices and policies in place during the term of the Employment Agreement to

the extent allowed under and in accordance with the terms of those plans, as

well as in any other benefit plans the Company offers to other senior executive

officers of the Company or other employees from time to time during the term of

the Employment Agreement (excluding plans applicable solely to certain officers

of the Company in accordance with the express terms of such plans).

In addition, pursuant to the Employment Agreement, and subject to limited conditions set forth therein, if Mr. Vasos is terminated by the Company without cause (as defined in the Employment Agreement) or if Mr. Vasos resigns from the Company for good reason (as defined in the Employment Agreement), or if Mr. Vasos resigns within 90 days after the Company's failure to offer to renew, extend or replace the Employment Agreement before, at or within one year after the end of its original term or any term provided for in a written renewal or extension of the original term (with limited exceptions outlined in the Employment Agreement), he will be entitled to:

· continued base salary payments for 24 months (subject to timing and form of . . .



At the Annual Meeting, the Company's shareholders approved a proposal to amend (the "Amendment") the Company's Charter to provide that special meetings of shareholders may be called upon written request from holders of record or beneficial owners (a) representing at least twenty-five percent (25%) of the voting power of the Company's shares entitled to vote on the matter or matters to be brought before the proposed special meeting and (b) that have complied in full with the requirements set forth in the Company's Bylaws, as amended from time to time. The Board previously approved the Amendment and the restatement of the Company's Charter to reflect the Amendment (as so amended and restated, the "Amended and Restated Charter"), subject to shareholder approval of the Amendment. The Company filed the Amended and Restated Charter with the Tennessee Secretary of State, and it became effective, on May 28, 2021.

In addition, effective May 28, 2021, the Board approved the amendment and restatement of the Company's Bylaws (as so amended and restated the "Amended and Restated Bylaws"), which:

· implement the ability of holders of 25% or more of the Company's stock to

   request a special meeting and set forth the conditions and requirements for
   such shareholders to request such a special meeting, as described in more
   detail in the Proxy Statement, as well as additional conforming amendments to
   existing provisions necessitated by the addition of the special meeting right

· provide for a forum selection provision which, unless the Company consents in

   writing to the selection of an alternative forum, requires (a) any derivative
   lawsuits, actions asserting a claim of breach of fiduciary duty, actions
   asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the Tennessee Business
   Corporation Act (the "TBCA"), the Amended and Restated Charter or the Amended
   and Restated Bylaws, or an action asserting a claim governed by the internal
   affairs doctrine, to be exclusively brought in a state or federal court located
   within Tennessee and (b) the U.S. federal district courts to be the sole and
   exclusive forum for the resolution of any complaint asserting a cause of action
   arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended;


· update various provisions to align with the TBCA pertaining to: required

   officers, removing the outdated requirements to appoint a President, a Vice
   President and a Treasurer and that the President and Secretary positions be
   held by different persons; meetings held by means of remote communication,
   recognizing that meetings held by means of remote communication need not be
   held in a physical location and that the notice of meeting which is held by
   means of remote communication shall set forth the means of remote communication
   by which shareholders and proxy holders may be deemed to be present in person
   and vote at such meeting; and the method of giving notice of meetings,
   specifically allowing notice of meetings to be given in any manner allowed
   under the TBCA;

· acknowledge that the provision pertaining to removal of directors is subject to

   the provisions contained in the Amended and Restated Charter; and

· make certain other updates, clarifications and ministerial and conforming
