Item 5.02

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


On March 22, 2021, CKX Lands, Inc. (the “Registrant”) and William Gray Stream, the Registrant’s President and Treasurer and a director, entered into a First Amendment (the “Amendment”) to Mr. Stream’s Executive Employment Agreement with the Registrant effective July 15, 2020 (the “Agreement”), which was previously filed with the Registrant’s Current Report on Form 8-K on July 16, 2020. The Agreement entitles Mr. Stream to receive restricted stock units and performance shares under a stock incentive plan (the “Plan”) that the Registrant will adopt if approved by the Registrant’s shareholders at its annual meeting in 2021. The Amendment:



decreases the percentage of each award under the Plan to be composed of time-vesting restricted stock units and increases the percentage to be composed of performance shares vesting based on the Registrant’s closing stock price;



provides that the performance shares would vest in increments if the closing price of the Registrant’s common stock on the NYSE American equals or exceeds certain price targets for at least ten consecutive trading days, rather than three consecutive trading days as provided in the Agreement; and



increases certain of the stock price targets.


The Amendment is filed as exhibit 10.1 to this report and is incorporated into this Item 5.02 by reference. The foregoing description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.
