On November 5, 2020, Lear Corporation (the “Company”) elected Roger A. Krone and Patricia L. Lewis to the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”), effective November 9, 2020, for terms ending at the 2021 annual meeting of stockholders of the Company. The election of Mr. Krone and Ms. Lewis expands the size of the Board to eleven directors.
In connection with their election, the Board approved the payment to each of Mr. Krone and Ms. Lewis of the monthly non-employee director cash retainer of $7,188 under the Company’s Outside Director Compensation Plan (which represents the pro rata portion of the $115,000 annual non-employee director cash retainer, reduced by 25% for all directors for the remainder of 2020 as approved by the Board in April 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic), commencing in November 2020. The Board also approved a pro-rata grant to each of Mr. Krone and Ms. Lewis of restricted stock units with respect to the common stock of the Company having an aggregate grant date value of approximately $80,000, which equals 6/12 of the annual restricted stock unit grant for non-employee directors under the Company’s Outside Director Compensation Plan.
There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Krone or Ms. Lewis and any other persons pursuant to which such person was elected as a director of the Company. With respect to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K, there are no relationships or related transactions between Mr. Krone or Ms. Lewis, respectively, and the Company that would be required to be reported.
A copy of the press release announcing the election of Mr. Krone and Ms. Lewis to the Board is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
