As previously disclosed by The Mosaic Company (“Mosaic”) in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 31, 2018 (the “Original Filing”), Anthony T. Brausen was appointed Senior Vice President - Finance and interim Chief Financial Officer effective January 31, 2018 until a permanent Chief Financial Officer has been appointed. This Current Report on Form 8-K/A is being filed as an amendment to the Original Filing to provide information regarding the agreement reached between Mosaic and Mr. Brausen regarding his compensation in connection with his interim role.
On March 8, 2018, Mr. Brausen and Mosaic entered into a letter agreement (the "Letter Agreement") dated March 7, 2018 in connection with Mr. Brausen's appointment as Senior Vice President - Finance and interim Chief Financial Officer, providing for the following terms applicable to the period (the "Employment Period") from the date of the agreement through Mr. Brausen's anticipated retirement date (expected to be the later of July 5, 2019 and one year following the end of the Transition Period described below):
continuation of Mr. Brausen's base compensation at an annual rate of $460,000 for the duration of the Employment Period, provided he remains a full-time salaried employee;
additional compensation at the monthly rate of $25,000 effective February 1, 2018 through the end of a "Transition Period" commencing on the date a permanent Chief Financial Officer is appointed and continuing for a period of one month, subject to extension by one or more months by mutual agreement of Mr. Brausen and Mosaic's Chief Executive Officer, provided Mr. Brausen remains a full-time salaried employee;
continued eligibility to participate in Mosaic's annual incentive program at an unchanged 50% target bonus opportunity, subject to approval each year by the Compensation Committee of Mosaic's Board of Directors;
management of Mosaic will recommend Mr. Brausen for a long-term incentive award valued at $650,000 for 2018 and a long-term incentive award valued at $500,000 for 2019, in each case subject to approval by the Compensation Committee; and
continued eligibility for standard employee benefits and executive benefits and perquisites.
The Letter Agreement supersedes all other agreements and understandings between Mr. Brausen and Mosaic, other than his existing Senior Management Severance and Change in Control Agreement, also provides that Mr. Brausen will not be severance eligible at the end of the Employment Period.
The foregoing description of the Letter Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Letter Agreement, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
