Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

 On September 15, 2020, the Board of Directors of Shoe Carnival, Inc. (the “Company”) approved an amendment and restatement of the Shoe Carnival, Inc. 2016 Executive Incentive Compensation Plan (as amended and restated, the “Executive Incentive Plan”), which included amendments to:

 

 

Allow for a performance period under the Executive Incentive Plan to be the spring season (defined as the first two fiscal quarters for any year) or the fall season (defined as the third and fourth fiscal quarter for any year), in addition to one or more full fiscal years;

 

Extend the term of the Executive Incentive Plan for an additional five years, through the fiscal year ending on, or about, January 31, 2026; and

 

Delete certain references to the performance-based compensation exception under Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code, which are no longer applicable.

 

The foregoing description of the amendments to the Executive Incentive Plan does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Executive Incentive Plan, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02.

 

In addition, on September 15, 2020, the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors established performance criteria and targets for a cash bonus payable under the Executive Incentive Plan in fiscal 2021 based on the Company’s operating income, calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“Operating Income”), for the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2020.  At a target level of performance, the Company’s executive officers could earn the following percentage of their respective annual salaries: Clifton E. Sifford – 40%; Mark J. Worden – 32%; W. Kerry Jackson – 24%; Timothy T. Baker – 24% and Carl N. Scibetta – 24%.  Performance below a threshold level of performance would result in no payout, performance at a threshold level of performance would result in a payout at 15% of the executive officer’s target bonus amount and performance at, or above, a maximum level of performance would result in a payout at 150% of the executive officer’s target bonus amount, with payout for performance between threshold and target and between target and maximum Operating Income interpolated. The Compensation Committee maintains discretion to adjust performance-based awards issued pursuant to the Executive Incentive Plan or issue discretionary bonuses outside of the Executive Incentive Plan when it determines such discretion is in the Company’s best interests.

J. Wayne Weaver, Chairman of the Company’s Board of Directors and an executive officer, will not participate in the Executive Incentive Plan in fiscal 2020.
