Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
(e) On August 19, 2021, First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. (the “Company”) and its wholly owned subsidiary First Interstate Bank (the “Bank”) entered into employment agreements with each of Kevin P. Riley, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and the Bank, Marcy D. Mutch, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company and the Bank, Jodi Delahunt Hubbell, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company and the Bank, and Russell A. Lee, Executive Vice President and Chief Banking Officer of the Company and the Bank (collectively, the “Employment Agreements”).
The Employment Agreements have an initial term of one year. After the initial term, the terms of the Employment Agreements will automatically be extended for an additional year and on each subsequent anniversary thereafter, so that the remaining term will be one year, unless a notice is provided at least 90 days prior to the then term end to the executive that the agreement will not renew or is otherwise terminated under the agreement. The employment agreements extend for an additional 12 month period automatically following a Change in Control transaction as defined in the Employment Agreements. Under the Employment Agreements, the current annual base salary for Mr. Riley, Ms. Mutch, Ms. Delahunt Hubbell, and Mr. Lee is $752,580, $467,250, $446,119, and $367,200, respectively. Base salary will be reviewed at least annually to determine whether an increase is appropriate.
Under the Employment Agreements, if the Company or the Bank terminates the executive’s employment for “cause,” as such term is defined in the Employment Agreements, the executive will not receive any compensation or benefits after the termination date. If the Company or the Bank terminates the executive’s employment without cause or if the executive terminates employment for “good reason,” as such term is defined in the Employment Agreements, the Company or the Bank will pay the executive an amount equal to one times (two times for Mr. Riley) the executive’s base salary plus one times (two times for Mr. Riley) the average of the annual incentive compensation paid to the executive during each of the three years immediately prior to the year in which the termination of employment occurs, with such amount payable over twelve (12) months (eighteen (18) months for Mr. Riley). In addition, the Bank will provide continued insurance coverage for up to twelve (12) months (twenty-four (24) months for Mr. Riley).
If the executive’s employment is terminated or if the executive voluntarily terminates employment during the term of the Employment Agreements for “good reason” during the term of the Employment Agreements within six months preceding or within eighteen (18) months following a Change in Control,” the executive will receive an amount equal to two times (three times for Mr. Riley) the executive’s base salary, plus two times (three times for Mr. Riley) the annual cash incentive at “target” (as defined in the annual cash incentive plan) in effect for the executive in the year in which the change in control occurs, plus a pro-rata portion of the executive’s target bonus for the calendar year in the year in which the termination of employment occurs, with such amount payable over twelve (12) months (eighteen (18) months for Mr. Riley). In addition, the Bank will provide continued insurance coverage for up to twenty-four (24) months.
If the severance benefits would constitute an “excess parachute payment” under Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, such payment shall either be reduced so that it will not constitute an excess parachute payment, or paid in full, depending on which payment would result in the executive receiving the greatest after-tax payment. In case of the latter, the executive would be liable for any excise tax owed.
The Employment Agreements for Ms. Mutch and Ms. Delahunt Hubbell contain twelve (12) month, for Mr. Riley contain eighteen (18) month, and for Mr. Lee contain twenty-four (24) month non-competition and non-solicitation restrictions following termination of the executive’s employment. Mr. Lee's Employment Agreement also provides for a part-time consulting arrangement with the Bank, for a monthly fee of approximately $15,000, commencing on the first business day following his termination of employment and continuing for a period of up to two years.
The foregoing description of the Employment Agreements does not purport to be complete and it is qualified in its entirety by reference to copies of the Employment Agreements that are included as Exhibits 10.1 through 10.4 to this Current Report and incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02.
