Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On June 16, 2021, the board of directors (the “Board”) of Lakeland Industries, Inc. (the "Company”), as well as the Compensation Committee of the Board (the “Committee”), jointly adopted the revised Lakeland Industries, Inc. Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “LTIP”). Officers, other employees, and directors of the Company are eligible to participate in the LTIP. The LTIP is administered by the Committee or the full Board with respect to non-employee directors of the Company. The LTIP is intended to enable the Company (a) to recruit and retain highly qualified executives, other employees and directors who are responsible for moving the business of the Company forward, (b) align the interests of the Company’s executives and directors with the interests of the Company’s stockholders by creating a direct link between compensation and the Company’s performance, and (c) incentivize executives, other employees and directors of the Company to contribute to the long-term success of the Company. It is provided that awards will be made annually. Awards for non-employee directors will be time based only, with vesting one year after the date of grant, subject to the participant’s continued service to the Company. Vesting of awards for officers and other employees will be three (3) years, 50% of which will be time based over three (3) years and the remaining 50% of which will be performance based and will vest on the last day of a three (3) year performance period based upon target percentages given to revenue growth, EBITDA margin, free cash flow, and relative goals and weights determined at the time of grant, subject to the participant’s continued employment with the Company. These target percentages will be applied against a base bonus amount (the “Base Bonus Amount”). The time based portion of the awards will vest 1/3 one year after the date of grant, 1/3 at the end of the second year of the performance period and 1/3 at the end of the third year of the performance period. The Base Bonus Amount will be equal to a percentage of the participant’s base salary in effect at the commencement of the performance period (or a set amount in the case of non-employee directors). The Committee may, at the time of grant, adjust the percentage of base salary utilized to determine Base Bonus Amount for any participant as it deems appropriate. All LTIP awards will be granted under, and will be subject to the terms and conditions of, the Lakeland Industries, Inc. 2017 Equity Incentive Plan. Recipients of awards who meet specified share ownership requirements may, subject to certain conditions, elect to be paid in cash in lieu of restricted stock.
The foregoing description of the LTIP does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the LTIP, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
