FirstEnergy paid customary arrangement and upfront fees to the arranging banks and other lenders in connection with the closing of the Term Loan Amendments. FirstEnergy maintains ordinary banking and investment banking relationships with lenders under the Term Loans.





The foregoing descriptions of the Term Loan Amendments do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the agreements themselves. The Term Loan Amendments are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to this Form 8-K, and are incorporated herein by reference.

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant
The information contained in Item 1.01 of this Form 8-K is incorporated into this Item 2.03 by reference.

Item 8.01 Other Events
On September 16, 2019, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of FirstEnergy approved an amended and restated Executive Compensation Recoupment Policy (the “Recoupment Policy”), effective September 16, 2019. The Recoupment Policy supersedes and replaces FirstEnergy's former recoupment policy adopted on January 21, 2014.

In general, the Recoupment Policy provides for the potential recoupment of certain executive compensation from current and former officers, as such term is defined in Rule 16a-1(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and current and former other FirstEnergy executives under certain circumstances. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Recoupment Policy, recoupment may be triggered by: (1) certain restatements of FirstEnergy’s financial statements, regardless of misconduct; and (2) certain categories of “Detrimental Activity” conducted by those covered persons noted above. For these purposes, Detrimental Activity includes, without limitation, misuse of FirstEnergy confidential information, certain breaches of contract or violations of fiduciary obligations, unethical conduct, engagement in violations of FirstEnergy policy or law or fraud which causes, or is reasonably likely to cause, significant operational, financial or reputational harm to FirstEnergy or its subsidiaries, and engagement in such activity which is not a breach of contract or violation of fiduciary obligations, but otherwise is, or is reasonably likely to be, materially detrimental to FirstEnergy or any of its subsidiaries, in each case as reasonably and in good faith determined by the Committee. As further described in the Recoupment Policy, recoupment of compensation may involve variable cash compensation based on financial or other FirstEnergy performance criteria and equity awards, including service- and performance-based equity that has been granted, vested or accrued.
 
For recoupment related to a financial restatement, the recoupment may be: (i) in whole with respect to a covered person if due to such person’s misconduct; or (ii) if no misconduct occurred, the amount in excess of that which would have been paid, earned or accrued under the restated financial statements during the three-year period preceding the filing of the restatement. It is at the discretion of the Committee to determine whether and to the extent recoupment is triggered as a result of Detrimental Activity. As further described in the Recoupment Policy, and subject to applicable law, compensation subject to the Recoupment Policy may be recovered by reduction, cancellation, termination, forfeiture or otherwise, of such compensation.

Forward-Looking Statements: This Form 8-K includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 based on information currently available to management. Unless the context requires otherwise, as used herein, references to “we,” “us,” “our,” and “FirstEnergy” refer to FirstEnergy Corp. Forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. These statements include declarations regarding management's intents, beliefs and current expectations. These statements typically contain, but are not limited to, the terms “anticipate,” “potential,” “expect,” "forecast," "target," "will," "intend," “believe,” "project," “estimate," "plan" and similar words. Forward-looking statements involve estimates, assumptions, known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, which may include the following: the ability to successfully execute an exit from commodity-based generation, including, without limitation, mitigating exposure for remedial activities associated with formerly owned generation assets; the risks associated with the Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings involving FirstEnergy Solutions Corp. (FES), its subsidiaries, and FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company (FENOC) (FES Bankruptcy) that could adversely affect us, our liquidity or results of operations, including, without limitation, that conditions to the FES Bankruptcy settlement agreement may not be met or that the FES Bankruptcy settlement agreement may not be otherwise consummated, and if so, the potential for litigation and payment demands against us by FES or FENOC or their creditors; the ability to accomplish or realize anticipated benefits from strategic and financial goals, including, but not limited to, our strategy to operate and grow as a fully regulated business, to execute our transmission and distribution investment plans, to continue to reduce costs through FE Tomorrow, which is the FirstEnergy initiative launched in late 2016 to identify our optimal organization structure and properly align corporate costs and systems to efficiently support FirstEnergy as a fully regulated company going forward, and other initiatives, and to improve our credit metrics, strengthen our balance sheet and grow earnings; legislative and regulatory developments including, but not limited to, matters related to rates, compliance and enforcement activity; economic and weather conditions affecting future operating results, such as significant weather events and other natural disasters, and associated regulatory events or actions; changes in assumptions regarding economic conditions within our territories, the reliability of our transmission and distribution system, or the availability of capital or other resources supporting identified transmission and distribution investment opportunities; changes in customers' demand for power, including, but not limited to, the impact of change or energy efficiency and peak demand reduction mandates; changes in national and regional economic conditions affecting us and/or our major industrial and commercial customers or others with which we do business; the risks associated with cyber-attacks and other disruptions to our information technology system, which may compromise our operations, and data security breaches of sensitive data, intellectual property and proprietary or personally identifiable information; the ability to comply with applicable reliability standards and energy efficiency and peak demand reduction mandates; changes to environmental laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, those related to climate change; changing market conditions affecting the measurement of certain liabilities and the value of assets held in our pension trusts and other trust funds, or causing us to make contributions sooner, or in amounts that are larger, than currently anticipated; the risks associated with the decommissioning of our retired and former nuclear facilities; the risks and uncertainties associated with litigation, arbitration, mediation and like proceedings; labor disruptions by our unionized workforce; changes to significant accounting policies; any changes in tax laws or regulations, including the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, or adverse tax audit results or rulings; the ability to access the public securities and other capital and credit markets in accordance with our financial plans, the cost of such capital and overall condition of the capital and credit markets affecting us; actions that may be taken by credit rating agencies that could negatively affect either our access to or terms of financing or our financial condition and liquidity; and the risks and other factors discussed from time to time in FirstEnergy’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings. Dividends declared from time to time on FirstEnergy’s common stock during any period may in the aggregate vary from prior periods due to circumstances considered by FirstEnergy’s Board of Directors at the time of the actual declarations. A security rating is not a recommendation to buy or hold securities and is subject to revision or withdrawal at any time by the assigning rating agency. Each rating should be evaluated independently of any other rating. These forward-looking statements are also qualified by, and should be read together with, the risk factors included in FirstEnergy’s filings with the SEC, including but not limited





to the most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K. The foregoing review of factors also should not be construed as exhaustive. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all such factors, nor assess the impact of any such factor on FirstEnergy's business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. FirstEnergy expressly disclaims any obligation to update or revise, except as required by law, any forward-looking statements contained herein or in the information incorporated by reference as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

(e)    Financial Statements. The consolidated balance sheets of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries, as at December 31, 2018, and the related consolidated statements of income, retained earnings and cash flows of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries, certified by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, independent public accountants, and the unaudited consolidated balance sheet of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries, as at June 30, 2019, and the related consolidated statements of income, retained earnings and cash flows of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries, for the six months then ended, copies of which have been furnished to each Lender, in all cases as amended and restated to the date hereof, present fairly in all material respects the consolidated financial position of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries as at the indicated dates and the consolidated results of the operations of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries for the periods ended on the indicated dates, all in accordance with GAAP consistently applied (in the case of such statements that are unaudited, subject to year-end adjustments and the exclusion of detailed footnotes).

The reports, financial statements and other written information furnished by or on behalf of the Borrower to the Administrative Agent or any Lender pursuant to or in connection with this Amendment and the transactions contemplated hereby, when taken together with the Disclosure Documents, do not contain, when taken as a whole, any untrue statement of a material fact and do not omit, when taken as a whole, to state any fact necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading in any material respect.

SECTION 5.    Reference to and Effect on the Credit Agreement and the Other Loan Documents.
(a)    Except as expressly amended hereby, all of the representations, warranties, terms, covenants and conditions of the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall remain in full force and effect in accordance with their respective terms and are hereby in all respects ratified and confirmed. The amendments set forth herein shall be limited precisely as provided for herein and shall not be deemed to be a waiver of, amendment of, consent to departure from or modification of any term or provision of the Loan Documents or any other document or instrument referred to therein or of any transaction or further or future action on the part of the Borrower requiring the consent of the Administrative Agent or the Lenders except to the extent specifically provided for herein. Except as expressly set forth herein, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders have not and shall not be deemed to have waived any of their respective rights and remedies against the Borrower for any existing or future Unmatured Default or Event of Default. The Administrative Agent and the Lenders reserve the right to insist on strict compliance with the terms of the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and the Borrower expressly acknowledges such reservation of rights.

(b)    Upon the effectiveness of this Amendment: (i) each reference in the Existing Credit Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof” or words of like import referring to the Existing Credit Agreement shall mean and be a reference to the Amended Agreement; and (ii) each reference in any other Loan Document to “the Credit Agreement”, “thereunder”, “thereof” or words of like import referring to the Existing Credit Agreement shall mean and be a reference to the Amended Agreement. This Amendment shall constitute a “Loan Document” for all purposes under the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
(c)    The execution, delivery and effectiveness of this Amendment shall not, except as expressly provided herein, operate as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of the Lenders or the Administrative Agent under the Existing Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document, nor constitute a waiver of any provision of the Existing Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document.
