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



On June 6, 2017, in preparation of the current Four Year Compensation Plan expiring in 2017, our Compensation Committee approved a new Four Year Compensation Plan (“the Plan”) for three of our executives; Brent K. Bilsland, our President and CEO; Lawrence D. Martin, our CFO; and Victor P. Stabio; our Chairman.  The Plan awards restricted stock units (RSUs) and sets annual base salaries for 2018-2021. 



Granting of RSUs



The Compensation Committee approved 275,000 RSUs to Brent K. Bilsland, our President and CEO; 150,000 RSUs to Lawrence D. Martin, our CFO; and 220,000 RSUs to Victor P. Stabio, our Chairman.  Beginning December 16, 2018, these RSUs will vest/lapse 25% each year an annual basis through December 16, 2021, or otherwise by the terms of the RSU Plan and the applicable award agreements.  The shares will fully vest/lapse no later than December 16, 2021.



A form of our RSU Agreement was previously filed with our Amended and Restated 2008 Restricted Stock Unit Plan that was filed as an exhibit to our 2017 Proxy Statement on April 12, 2017.
