Executive Vice President and President, Global Commercial Operations Employment Agreement
Endo Health Solutions Inc. (“EHSI”), an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Endo International plc (the “Company”) entered into a new executive employment agreement with Mr. Patrick Barry, the Company's Executive Vice President and President, Global Commercial Operations, dated as of April 28, 2020 (the “Employment Agreement”), effective as of April 26, 2020, the expiration date of Mr. Barry’s prior employment agreement with EHSI, in accordance with its terms. The Employment Agreement has a term of three years ending on April 26, 2023, unless earlier terminated. Under the Employment Agreement, Mr. Barry is entitled to an annual base salary of $550,000 and he is eligible to receive a target annual cash bonus of 60% of his base salary.
During the term of the Employment Agreement, Mr. Barry is also eligible to receive long-term incentive compensation, which may be subject to the achievement of certain performance targets set by the Compensation Committee of Endo’s Board of Directors (the “Compensation Committee”). Beginning with grants made in 2021, Mr. Barry is eligible to receive long-term incentive compensation awards with a targeted grant date fair market value (as determined in the sole discretion of the Compensation Committee) equal to 250% of his base salary. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent the shares available under the Company’s shareholder approved incentive plans are insufficient to make such grant (after taking into account the totality of grants to be made by the Company in a given year), in the Compensation Committee’s sole discretion, all or a portion of the long-term incentive compensation may be issued in the form of a cash-based award on terms determined by the Compensation Committee. Mr. Barry is also entitled to receive benefits on the same basis as other senior executives.
The Employment Agreement also provides that in the event of a termination of Mr. Barry’s employment by the Company without Cause or by Mr. Barry for Good Reason (as these terms are defined in the Employment Agreement), Mr. Barry will be entitled to the following benefits, subject to his execution of a release of claims: a prorated bonus for year of termination (based on actual performance results), severance in an amount equal to two times the sum of his base salary and target bonus, and continuation of medical and life insurance benefits for twenty-four (24) months following termination. Mr. Barry may elect to reduce his severance payments to the extent these payments would constitute “excess parachute payments” under Sections 280G and 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code. Payments upon termination due to death or disability include a prorated bonus for the year of termination (based on actual performance results), continuation of medical and life insurance benefits for Mr. Barry and/or his dependents for twenty-four (24) months following such termination and, in the event of disability, twenty-four (24) months of salary continuation offset by disability benefits. If, within ninety (90) days following the expiration of the Employment Agreement, Mr. Barry’s employment is terminated by the Company under circumstances that would not have constituted Cause or by Mr. Barry under circumstances that would have constituted Good Reason, he will receive a prorated bonus for the year of termination (based on actual performance results), and the termination will be treated as a termination without Cause or for Good Reason for purposes of any performance-based long-term incentive awards held by Mr. Barry as of the date of such termination of employment.
The Employment Agreement also contains an eighteen month non-solicitation covenant, a twelve month non-competition covenant, a non-disparagement covenant and a covenant providing for cooperation by Mr. Barry in connection with any investigations and/or litigation.
The foregoing description of the Employment Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Employment Agreement itself. A copy of the Employment Agreement will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, expected to be filed on or around May 7, 2020.
