Item 5.02Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On April 28, 2021, Marathon Petroleum Corporation (the “Corporation”) held its 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “2021 Annual Meeting”). At the 2021 Annual Meeting, the Corporation’s shareholders approved the Marathon Petroleum Corporation 2021 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “2021 Plan”). The Board of Directors of the Corporation had previously adopted and approved the 2021 Plan on February 24, 2021, subject to shareholder approval.

The 2021 Plan replaces the Amended and Restated Marathon Petroleum Corporation 2012 Incentive Compensation Plan, as amended (the “Prior Plan”). The Prior Plan expires according to its terms on April 25, 2022. Following shareholder approval of the 2021 Plan, no new awards may be granted under the Prior Plan but all awards granted under the Prior Plan that were outstanding as of the date that shareholders approved the 2021 Plan will remain outstanding and will continue to be governed by the terms of the Prior Plan.

Those eligible for awards under the 2021 Plan include the Corporation’s employees, non-employee directors and certain consultants of the Corporation and its subsidiaries. The Corporation’s named executive officers are eligible employees under the 2021 Plan. The 2021 Plan is intended to provide to such persons incentives and rewards for performance and/or service to the Corporation.

The 2021 Plan authorizes the grant of awards, including shares of the Corporation’s common stock, in any combination of the following:

• stock options, including incentive stock options and non-qualified stock options;
• stock appreciation rights (or SARs);
• stock awards, restricted stock awards and other awards denominated or paid in common stock;
• restricted stock units (which may include dividend equivalents);
• cash awards; and
• performance awards.

The maximum number of shares of common stock available for awards under the 2021 Plan (subject to the adjustment provisions and the share counting rules of the 2021 Plan) is 20,500,000 shares, less any shares subject to grants made under the Prior Plan after December 31, 2020 and prior to the effective date of the 2021 Plan (and counted on a one-for-one basis). If, after the effective date of the 2021 Plan, any shares subject to an award under the 2021 Plan or under the Prior Plan, or any awards under the 2021 Plan or under the Prior Plan, are forfeited, canceled, unearned, expire or are settled for cash (in each case in whole or in part), the shares subject to the award may be used again for awards under the 2021 Plan to the extent of the forfeiture, cancellation, lack of being earned, expiration or cash settlement.

A summary of the 2021 Plan is set forth in the Corporation’s definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 15, 2021 and is incorporated herein by reference. The summaries set forth above and therein do not purport to be complete and are each qualified by reference to the full text of the 2021 Plan, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
