DONEGAL GROUP INC : Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exhibits (form 8-K)

10/01/2020 | 11:17am EST

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

Background

Although we and Donegal Mutual Insurance Company ("Donegal Mutual") each maintain our separate legal existence, our insurance subsidiaries and Donegal Mutual conduct business together as the "Donegal Insurance Group." Among other things, all of the employees who provide services to us, Donegal Mutual and our respective insurance subsidiaries are employees of Donegal Mutual. However, for executive officers, we and Donegal Mutual (the "Companies") jointly enter into employment agreements. We recently entered into revised employment agreements with the senior executive officers of the Donegal Insurance Group following review and analysis of existing arrangements, including taking into consideration prevailing market terms.

Entry into Employment Agreements

On October 1, 2020, the Companies entered into employment agreements with our named executive officers, which include Kevin G. Burke, President and Chief Executive Officer; Jeffrey D. Miller, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; Richard G. Kelley, Senior Vice President; Sanjay Pandey, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer and Daniel J. Wagner, Senior Vice President and Treasurer. The Companies also entered into employment agreements containing generally similar provisions with other executive officers of the Companies.

Employment Agreements with Kevin G. Burke and Jeffrey D. Miller

The respective employment agreements among the Companies and Messrs. Burke and Miller become effective October 1, 2020 and will extend for a term of 42 months, provided that the term of each employment agreement will automatically extend for one additional year following the initial 42-month term unless the executive or our board of directors and Donegal Mutual's board of directors provides not less than 60 days' advance notice that the employment agreement will expire at the end of the then-current term.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A summary of the principal terms of the employment agreements among the Companies and Messrs. Burke and Miller is as follows:



         •   The Companies will pay Mr. Burke (a) an initial annual base salary
             equal to the amount of his current annual base salary of $665,000 or
             (b) such greater amount, if any, as the compensation committees of the
             Companies recommend and the boards of directors of the Companies
             approve, plus such other compensation as the Companies may, from time
             to time, determine.




         •   The Companies will pay Mr. Miller (a) an initial annual base salary
             equal to the amount of his current annual base salary of $560,000 or
             (b) such greater amount, if any, as the compensation committees of the
             Companies recommend and the boards of directors of the Companies
             approve, plus such other compensation as the Companies may, from time
             to time, determine.




         •   The respective employment agreements among the Companies and Messrs.
             Burke and Miller grant the executives the right to participate in the
             Companies' incentive programs, including those relating to the
             standards and objectives set forth in the Companies' executive
             incentive plans and benefit plans.




         •   The respective employment agreements among the Companies and Messrs.
             Burke and Miller include customary provisions relating to
             indemnification, confidentiality and non-solicitation.




         •   The respective employment agreements among the Companies and Messrs.
             Burke and Miller include a non-compete provision that extends for two
             years following a termination of employment (regardless of the reason
             for termination) with regard to any insurance company, insurance
             holding company or other entities that offer services or products
             competitive with the services or products that the Companies or their
             respective subsidiaries or affiliates currently offer or offer in the
             future.




         •   The respective employment agreements among the Companies and Messrs.
             Burke and Miller include certain rights to terminate the agreement
             and, upon the occurrence of certain events such as a change of
             control, the right to receive severance payments, as provided in the
             employment agreements we attach as exhibits to this Form 8-K Report.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Employment Agreements of Our Other Named Executive Officers

The respective employment agreements among the Companies and Messrs. Kelley, Pandey and Wagner contain provisions similar to those included in the employment agreement among the Companies and Messrs. Burke and Miller, except as follows:



         •   Each employment agreement among the Companies and the executive
             becomes effective October 1, 2020 and will extend for a term of three
             years, provided that the term of each employment agreement will
             automatically extend for one additional year following the initial
             three-year term unless the executive or our board of directors and
             Donegal Mutual's board of directors provides not less than 60 days'
             advance notice that the employment agreement will expire at the end of
             the then-current term.




         •   The Companies will pay a base salary to the executive (a) an initial
             annual base salary equal to the amount of his current annual base
             salary, which for each executive is as follows:




  •   Mr. Kelley, $425,000;




  •   Mr. Pandey, $425,000; and




  •   Mr. Wagner, $405,000

or (b) such greater amount, if any, as the compensation committees of the Companies recommend and the boards of directors of the Companies approve, plus such other compensation as the Companies may, from time to time, determine.



         •   The employment agreements among the executives and the Companies do
             not include a non-compete provision.




         •   We attach a form of employment agreement among the Companies and our
             other named executive officers as an exhibit to this Form 8-K Report.
