Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On February 10, 2021, the Board of Directors of Centennial Resource Development, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the Centennial Resource Development, Inc. Second Amended and Restated Severance Plan (the “Amended Plan”). Under the Amended Plan, all of the Company’s full-time employees, including the named executive officers, are eligible for benefits in connection with a Qualifying Termination of employment following a Change of Control (as such capitalized terms are defined in the Amended Plan). The Amended Plan amends and restates in its entirety the Centennial Resource Development, Inc. Amended and Restated Severance Plan that became effective on October 29, 2019 to increase the cash severance payable to officers that experience a Qualifying Termination following a Change of Control.

Under the Amended Plan, if one of the Company’s named executive officers experiences a Qualifying Termination, the named executive officer is entitled to cash severance in an amount equal to 275% (or, in the case of the Chief Executive Officer, 300%) of the executive officer’s annual base salary, plus 275% (or, in the case of the Chief Executive Officer, 300%) of the average of the actual annual performance bonuses paid to the executive officer in the three full fiscal years prior to the year of termination plus a prorated target bonus for the year of termination. The Amended Plan makes no changes to the healthcare continuation benefits, outplacement benefits or equity treatment benefits that the named executive officers are entitled to receive following a Qualifying Termination, all of which is described in the Company’s 2020 Proxy Statement.

The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended Plan, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
