PROXY STATEMENT

FOR OUR 2018 ANNUAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS TO BE HELD ON MAY 21, 2018

These proxy materials are being made available in connection with the solicitation of proxies by the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Randolph Bancorp, Inc., a Massachusetts corporation, for use at our 2018 annual meeting of shareholders to be held on May 21, 2018, at 4:00 p.m., local time, at our corporate offices at 10 Cabot Place, Stoughton, Massachusetts 02072, or at any postponement or adjournment of the annual meeting. References in this proxy statement to “we,” “us,” “our,” “ours,” or the “Company” refer to Randolph Bancorp, Inc., unless the context otherwise requires. This proxy statement and form of proxy have been mailed to shareholders on or about April 10, 2018.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THE ANNUAL MEETING

Who is entitled to vote at the annual meeting?

Holders of record of our common stock, $0.01 par value per share, at the close of business on March 16, 2018, the record date for the annual meeting, are entitled to receive notice of the annual meeting and to vote at the annual meeting. If you are a holder of record of our common stock as of the record date, you may vote the shares that you held on the record date even if you sell such shares after the record date. Each outstanding share of common stock as of the record date entitles its holder to cast one vote for each matter to be voted upon and, with respect to the election of directors, one vote for each director to be elected. Shareholders do not have the right to cumulate voting for the election of directors.

What is the purpose of the annual meeting?

At the annual meeting, you will be asked to vote on the following proposals:

 

    Proposal 1: The election of the two Class II director nominees named in this proxy statement to serve on our Board for a term of three years and until their respective successors are duly elected and qualified; and

 

    Proposal 2: The ratification of the appointment of Crowe Horwath LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018.

You also may be asked to consider and act upon any other matters that may properly be brought before the annual meeting and at any adjournments or postponements thereof.

What constitutes a quorum?

The presence, in person or by proxy, of holders of a majority of the votes entitled to be cast at the annual meeting is necessary to constitute a quorum for the transaction of any business at the annual meeting. As of March 16, 2018, there were 6,029,776 shares outstanding and entitled to vote at the annual meeting.

Each share of common stock outstanding on the record date is entitled to one vote on each matter properly submitted at the annual meeting and, with respect to the election of directors, one vote for each director to be elected. Abstentions and “broker non-votes” (i.e., shares represented at the meeting held by brokers, as to which instructions have not been received from the beneficial owners or persons entitled to vote such shares and with respect to which, on a particular matter, the broker does not have discretionary voting power to vote such shares) will be counted for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present for the transaction of business at the annual meeting.

Table of Contents

What vote is required to approve each proposal?

With respect to Proposal 1, directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast by the shares entitled to vote in the election. Abstentions and broker non-votes with respect to Proposal 1 will have no effect on the election of directors. Proposal 2 will be approved if the votes cast in favor of the proposal exceed the votes cast against the proposal. Abstentions and broker non-votes with respect to Proposal 2 will have no effect on the votes for this proposal.

Can I change my vote after I submit my proxy?

If you cast a vote by proxy, you may revoke it at any time before it is voted by:

 

    filing a written notice revoking the proxy with our Secretary at our address;

 

    properly submitting to us a proxy with a later date; or

 

    appearing in person and voting by ballot at the annual meeting.

If you attend the annual meeting, you may vote in person whether or not you previously have given a proxy, but your presence (without further action) at the annual meeting will not constitute revocation of a previously given proxy. Unless you have received a legal proxy to vote the shares, if you hold your shares through a bank, broker, or other nominee, that is, in “street name,” only that bank, broker, or other nominee can revoke your proxy on your behalf.

You may revoke a proxy for shares held by a bank, broker, or other nominee by submitting new voting instructions to the bank, broker, or other nominee or, if you have obtained a legal proxy from the bank, broker, or other nominee giving you the right to vote the shares at the annual meeting, by attending the annual meeting and voting in person.

How do I vote?

Voting in person at the annual meeting. If you hold your shares in your own name as a holder of record with our transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, and attend the annual meeting, you may vote in person at the annual meeting. If your shares are held by a bank, broker, or other nominee, that is, in “street name,” and you wish to vote in person at the annual meeting, you will need to obtain a “legal proxy” from the bank, broker, or other nominee that holds your shares of record.

Voting by proxy. If your shares are registered directly in your name with our transfer agent, this proxy statement was sent directly to you by us. In that case, you may instruct the proxy holders named in the proxy card how to vote your shares of common stock in one of the following ways:

Vote online. You can access proxy materials and vote at www.proxyvote.com. To vote online, you must have a shareholder identification number provided on your proxy card.

Vote by telephone. If you received printed materials, you also have the option to vote by telephone by following the “Vote by Phone” instructions on the proxy card.

Vote by regular mail. If you would like to vote by mail, then please mark, sign, and date your proxy card and return it promptly in the postage-paid envelope provided.

Voting by Proxy for Shares Registered in Street Name. If your shares are held in street name, you will receive instructions from your broker, bank or other nominee that you must follow in order to have your shares of common stock voted.

Even if you plan to attend the annual meeting, we recommend that you submit a proxy to vote your shares in advance so that your vote will be counted if you later are unable to attend the annual meeting.

Table of Contents

How is my vote counted?

If you authorize your proxy to vote your shares electronically via the internet or by telephone, or, if you received a proxy card by mail and you properly marked, signed, dated, and returned it, the shares that the proxy represents will be voted in the manner specified on the proxy. If no specification is made, your shares will be voted “for” the election of the nominees for the directors named in this proxy statement and “for” ratification of the appointment of Crowe Horwath LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018. It is not anticipated that any matters other than those set forth in this proxy statement will be presented at the annual meeting. If other matters are presented, proxies will be voted in accordance with the discretion of the proxy holders.

How does the Board recommend that I vote on each of the proposals?

The Board recommends that you vote:

 

    FOR Proposal 1: The election of Daniel M. Joyce and Louis J. Trubiano, as Class II directors to serve on our Board for a term of three years and until their respective successors are duly elected and qualified; and

 

    FOR Proposal 2: The ratification of the appointment of Crowe Horwath LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018.

What other information should I review before voting?

Our 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K, including our consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, was mailed to you along with this proxy statement. You may obtain, free of charge, copies of our 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K on our website at www.envisionbank.com. Copies of this report may also be obtained, free of charge, by directing your request in writing to 10 Cabot Place, Stoughton, Massachusetts 02072, Attention: Investor Relations. The 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K, however, is not part of the proxy solicitation materials, and the information found on, or accessible through, our website is not incorporated into, and does not form a part of, this proxy statement or any other report or document we file with or furnish to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

Who is soliciting my proxy?

This solicitation of proxies is made by and on behalf of the Board. We will pay the cost of the solicitation of proxies. In addition to the solicitation of proxies by mail, our directors, officers, and employees may solicit proxies personally or by telephone.

No person is authorized on our behalf to give any information or to make any representations with respect to the proposals other than the information and the representations contained in this proxy statement, and, if given or made, such information and/or representations must not be relied upon as having been authorized.

Table of Contents

PROPOSAL 1: ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

Our articles of organization provide that the size of the Board will be determined from time to time by resolution of the Board. Our articles of organization also provide that no director shall serve after attaining age 75 or generally after completing seven terms, except for the limited situations as set forth in the articles of organization. The Board currently consists of ten directors. Our articles of organization provide for a classified board of directors consisting of three classes of directors. We currently have three directors in Class I, three directors in Class II, and four directors in Class III, each serving a staggered three-year term. Class II Director Richard A. Phillips, Sr. is retiring from the Board at the completion of his current term and is not standing for re-election.

The Board, upon the recommendation of the governance committee, has nominated Daniel M. Joyce and Louis J. Trubiano to serve as directors. Each of these nominees is a current director of the Company. The Board anticipates that each nominee will serve, if elected, as a director. However, if any nominee is unable to accept election, proxies voted in favor of such nominee will be voted for the election of such other person or persons as the Board may select. Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast by the shares entitled to vote in the election.

We will treat broker non-votes as shares that are present and entitled to vote for purposes of determining the presence or absence of a quorum. Abstentions and broker non-votes, if any, will have no effect on this proposal.

The Board unanimously recommends that you vote FOR each of the director nominees.

Mr. Foresta served as the chief information officer at Dean Bank from 2007 to November 2013, vice president and director of information systems at Capital Crossing Bank from 2005 to 2007 and in various information technology positions at Citizens Bank and Abington Savings Bank from 1998 to 2005.

ROLE OF THE BOARD; CORPORATE GOVERNANCE MATTERS

Board Leadership Structure and the Role of the Board in Risk Oversight

Board Leadership Structure. Although our by-laws do not require that we separate the chairman of the board and chief executive officer positions, the Board believes that having separate positions is the appropriate leadership structure for us at this time. Separating these positions allows our chief executive officer to focus on our day-to-day business, while allowing the chairman of the board to lead the Board in its fundamental role of providing advice to and independent oversight of management. The Board recognizes the time, effort, and energy that the chief executive officer must devote to his position in the current business environment, as well as the commitment required to serve as our chairman of the board, particularly as the Board’s oversight responsibilities continue to grow. The Board also believes that this structure ensures a greater role for the independent directors in the oversight of the Company and active participation of the independent directors in setting agendas and establishing priorities and procedures for the work of the Board. The Board recognizes that, depending on the circumstances, other leadership models, such as combining the role of chairman of the board with the role of chief executive officer, might be appropriate. Accordingly, the Board will periodically review its leadership structure.

Role of the Board in Risk Oversight. The Board is actively involved in oversight of risks that could affect the Company, including credit risk, interest rate risk, liquidity risk, operational risk, strategic risk, and reputation risk. This oversight is conducted in part through committees of the Board, but the full Board has retained responsibility for general oversight of enterprise risk management. The Board satisfies this responsibility through full reports by each committee regarding its considerations and actions and regular reports directly from officers responsible for oversight of particular risks within the Company. Risks relating to the direct operations of Envision Bank are further overseen by the board of directors of Envision Bank, who are the same individuals who serve on the Board of Randolph Bancorp, Inc. Further, the Board oversees risks through the establishment of policies and procedures that are designed to guide daily operations in a manner consistent with applicable laws, regulations, and risks acceptable to the organization.

Director Independence

The NASDAQ listing rules require that independent directors constitute a majority of a listed company’s board of directors. In addition, the NASDAQ listing rules require that, subject to specified exceptions, each member of a listed company’s audit, compensation, and nominating and corporate governance committees be independent and that audit committee members also satisfy independence criteria set forth in Rule 10A-3 under the Exchange Act. Under NASDAQ listing rules, a director will only qualify as an “independent director” if, in the opinion of the Board, that person does not have a relationship that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. In order to be considered independent under the Exchange Act, a

Table of Contents

member of an audit committee of a listed company may not, other than in his or her capacity as a member of the audit committee, the board of directors, or any other board committee: (1) accept, directly or indirectly, any consulting, advisory, or other compensatory fee from the listed company or any of its subsidiaries; or (2) be an affiliated person of the listed company or any of its subsidiaries. In addition to satisfying general independence requirements under the NASDAQ listing rules, a member of a compensation committee of a listed company may not (other than in his or her capacity as a member of the compensation committee, the board of directors, or any other board committee) accept, directly or indirectly, any consulting, advisory, or other compensatory fee from the listed company or any of its subsidiaries. Additionally, the board of directors of the listed company must consider whether the compensation committee member is an affiliated person of the listed company or any of its subsidiaries and, if so, must determine whether such affiliation would impair the director’s judgment as a member of the compensation committee.

Based upon information requested from and provided by each director concerning his or her background, employment, and affiliations, including family and other relationships, including those relationships described under the section of entitled “Transactions with Related Parties,” the Board determined that each of our directors, with the exception of Mr. McDonough, is “independent” under the NASDAQ listing rules. Mr. McDonough is not considered independent because he currently serves as our President and Chief Executive Officer. The Board also determined that each member of the audit and the governance committees satisfies the independence standards for such committees established by the SEC and the NASDAQ Listing Rules, as applicable. In making these determinations on the independence of our directors, the Board considered the relationships that each such non-employee director has with our company and all other facts and circumstances the Board deemed relevant in determining independence.

Our independent directors will meet alone in executive session periodically. The purpose of these executive sessions is to promote open and candid discussion among the independent directors.

Shareholder Communications with the Board

Shareholders wishing to communicate with the Board should address their communications to the Company’s investor relations department contact, Michael K. Devlin, by e-mail at mdevlin@envisionbank.com, by telephone at (617) 925-1961, or by mail sent to the Company’s corporate offices at 10 Cabot Place, Stoughton, Massachusetts 02072, Attention: Investor Relations. The mailing envelope should contain a clear notation indicating that the enclosed letter is a “Shareholder-Board Communication” or “Shareholder-Director Communication.” All such letters should clearly state whether the intended recipients are all members of the Board or certain specified individual directors. All communications will be reviewed by the Company’s investor relations department, which will determine whether the communication will be relayed to the Board or the director. Except for resumes, sales and marketing communications, or notices regarding seminars or conferences, summaries of all shareholder communications will be provided to the Board.

The Board and Its Committees

The Board has a standing audit committee, governance committee, and executive committee. The composition and responsibilities of each committee are described below. Members serve on these committees until their resignation or until otherwise determined by the Board.

The Board held 22 meetings (including meetings of the Board of Directors of Envision Bank) during fiscal year 2017, and all directors attended 75% or more of the Board meetings and meetings of the committees on which they served during the periods they served. All directors are expected to attend the annual meeting.

Audit Committee. The audit committee is responsible for assisting the Board in its oversight of the integrity of our financial statements, the qualifications and independence of our independent auditors, our internal financial and accounting controls, and our internal audit function. The audit committee has direct responsibility for the appointment, compensation, retention (including termination), and oversight of our independent auditors, and our independent auditors report directly to the audit committee. The audit committee also prepares the audit committee report that the SEC requires to be included in our annual proxy statement. In addition, the audit committee has oversight responsibility in ensuring that a risk-based internal audit plan is designed and implemented, with the related results of such audits communicated on a timely basis.

Table of Contents

The members of the audit committee are Messrs. Donovan, Joyce, Quigley, Trubiano, and Welch, with Mr. Joyce serving as chair. Each member of the audit committee qualifies as an independent director under the corporate governance standards of the NASDAQ listing rules and the independence requirements of the Exchange Act. Our Board has determined that Mr. Joyce, Mr. Quigley, and Mr. Welch each qualifies as an “audit committee financial expert” as such term is currently defined under SEC rules. The audit committee has adopted a written charter that satisfies the applicable standards of the SEC and the NASDAQ listing rules, and it is available on our website.

Governance Committee. The governance committee serves the function of both the nominating and corporate governance committee and the compensation committee. The governance committee is responsible for making recommendations to the Board regarding candidates for directorships and the structure and composition of the Board and its committees. In addition, the governance committee is responsible for developing and recommending to the Board corporate governance guidelines applicable to us and advising the Board on corporate governance matters.

The governance committee also approves our compensation objectives, approves the compensation of all executives other than the chief executive officer, and recommends to the Board for approval the compensation of the chief executive officer. The governance committee reviews all compensation components, including base salary, bonus, benefits, equity awards, and other perquisites.

Although the governance committee makes independent determinations on matters related to the compensation of members of senior management, certain members of management may be requested to attend meetings or provide input to the governance committee to ensure the governance committee has the information and perspective necessary to carry out its duties. Our chief executive officer provides the governance committee with input and recommendations on decisions related to the amount and form of compensation for all members of our senior management, except for that of the chief executive officer.

The governance committee also has the authority to retain a compensation consultant to advise on compensation matters. The governance committee also has access to outside legal counsel and other experts as needed. These advisors serve at the request of the governance committee, which has the power and authority to retain such experts and approve fees and retention terms.

The members of the governance committee are Messrs. Joyce, O’Connor, Quigley, Trubiano, and Welch, with Mr. Welch serving as chair. Each member of the governance committee is a “non-employee director” under the Exchange Act, and each is an independent director as defined by the NASDAQ listing rules. The governance committee has adopted a written charter that satisfies the applicable standards of the NASDAQ listing rules, and it is available on our website. The governance committee may establish and delegate authority to one or more subcommittees consisting of one or more of its members, when the governance committee deems it appropriate to do so in order to carry out its responsibilities.

Executive Committee. The executive committee generally has the authority to exercise the power of the full Board during intervals between meetings of the Board. The members of the executive committee are Messrs. Joyce, McDonough, O’Connor, Quigley, Trubiano, and Welch, with Mr. Trubiano serving as chair.

The Board may establish other committees from time to time.

Consideration of Director Nominees

The governance committee is responsible for identifying, assessing and recommending the slate of candidates to be nominated for election to the Board. The governance committee uses a variety of methods for identifying and evaluating nominees for director, and assesses the mix of skills and the performance of the Board as a whole on an annual basis. In the course of establishing the slate of nominees for director each year, the governance committee will consider whether any vacancies on the Board are expected due to retirement or otherwise, the skills represented by retiring and continuing directors, and additional skills highlighted during the annual Board self-assessment process that could improve the overall quality and ability of the Board to carry out its function. In the event that vacancies are anticipated or arise, the governance committee considers various potential candidates for director. Candidates may come to the attention of the governance committee through the business and other networks of the existing members of the Board or from management, or through shareholder nominations. The governance

Table of Contents

committee may also solicit recommendations for director nominees from independent search firms or any other source it deems appropriate. When an incumbent director is up for re-election, the governance committee reviews the performance, skills, and characteristics of such incumbent director before making a determination to recommend that the full Board nominate him or her for re-election.

The governance committee requires all nominees to have experience at a strategic or policymaking level in a business, government, non-profit, or academic organization of high standing; to be highly accomplished in his or her respective field, with superior credentials and recognition; to be well regarded in the community and have a long-term reputation for the highest ethical and moral standards; to have sufficient time and availability to devote to the affairs of the Company, particularly in light of the number of boards on which the nominee may serve; and to the extent such nominee serves or has previously served on other boards, to have a demonstrated history of actively contributing at board meetings. In addition to reviewing a nominee’s background and accomplishments, nominees are reviewed in the context of the current composition of the Board and the evolving needs of the Company and whether the nominee, if elected, would assist in achieving a mix of Board members that represents a diversity of background and experiences.

Pursuant to the corporate governance guidelines established by the Board, a majority of the Board shall be “independent” under the NASDAQ listing standards. On an annual basis, the governance committee reviews the “independent” status of each member of the Board to determine whether any relationship is inconsistent with a determination that the director was independent. Additionally, the guidelines established by the Board require that the Company’s audit and governance committees shall be comprised entirely of independent directors and at least one member of the audit committee shall have such experience, education, and other qualifications necessary to qualify as an “audit committee financial expert” as defined by SEC rules.

Shareholder Nomination Procedure

Any shareholder of the Company entitled to vote for the election of directors at the annual meeting can submit the names of candidates for director by writing to the Secretary at Randolph Bancorp, Inc. 10 Cabot Place, Stoughton, Massachusetts 02072. To be timely, a shareholder’s notice must be delivered not later than the close of business on the 90th day nor earlier than the close of business on the 120th day prior to the first anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting; provided, however, that in the event that the date of the annual meeting is advanced by more than 30 days before or delayed by more than 60 days after such anniversary date, notice by the shareholder to be timely must be so delivered not earlier than the close of business on the 120th day prior to such annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to such annual meeting or the tenth day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made.

The submission shall include the following information set forth below:

 

    As to each person whom the shareholder proposes to nominate for election or reelection as a director, all information relating to such person that is required to be disclosed in solicitations of proxies for election of directors in an election contest, or is otherwise required, in each case pursuant to Regulation 14A under the Exchange Act (including such person’s written consent to being named in the proxy statement as a nominee and to serving as a director if elected);

 

    The name and address of the shareholder giving the notice, as they appear on the Company’s books, and the names and addresses of the beneficial owner(s), if any, on whose behalf the nomination is made; and as to each such shareholder and beneficial owner, any Material Ownership Interests (as defined in the Company’s by-laws); and

 

    A description of all arrangements or understandings among the shareholder and/or any such beneficial owner(s) and each proposed nominee and any other person or persons (including their names) pursuant to which the nominations are to be made.

There were no submissions by shareholders of Board nominees for our 2018 annual meeting.

Compensation Committee Interlocks and Insider Participation

During the year ended December 31, 2017, the members of the governance committee were Messrs. Joyce, O’Connor, Quigley, Trubiano, and Welch, each of whom are independent directors. None of our executive officers currently serves, or in the past year has served, as a member of the board of directors or compensation committee (or other committee performing equivalent functions) of any entity that has one or more executive officers serving on the Board or governance committee. No interlocking relationship exists between any member of the Board or governance committee (which performs compensation committee functions) and any executive officer, member of the Board, or member of the compensation committee (or other committee performing equivalent functions) of any other company.

Transactions with Related Parties

The following is a description of transactions, since January 1, 2017, to which we have been a party or will be a party, in which the amount involved exceeded or will exceed $120,000, and in which any of our executive officers or directors, or an affiliate or immediate family member thereof, had or will have a direct or indirect material interest, other than compensation, termination, and change in control arrangements, which are described under “Director Compensation” and “Executive Compensation” below.

Loans and Extensions of Credit. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 generally prohibits loans to our executive officers and directors. However, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 contains a specific exemption from such prohibition for loans by Envision Bank to its executive officers and directors in compliance with federal banking regulations. Federal regulations require that all loans or extensions of credit to executive officers and directors of insured institutions must be made on substantially the same terms, including interest rates and collateral, as those prevailing at the time for comparable transactions with persons not related to Envision Bank and must not involve more than the normal risk of repayment or present other unfavorable features. There were no loans to our directors, executive officers, and their related entities at December 31, 2017.

Other Transactions. Since January 1, 2017, there have been no transactions and there are no currently proposed transactions in which we were or are to be a participant and the amount involved exceeds $120,000, and in which any of our executive officers or directors had or will have a direct or indirect material interest.

(1) Includes retainer payments and committee and/or chair fees earned during the fiscal year. Fees earned or paid include fees for service on the board of Envision Bank.
(2) Amounts included in the “Stock Awards” and “Option Awards” columns for the year ended December 31, 2017 represent grants under the 2017 Stock Option and Incentive Plan that were made on October 12, 2017. All non-employee directors received an award of 7,042 shares of restricted stock and a grant of 16,302 options to purchase shares of common stock at an exercise price of $14.66 per share on such date. Amounts related to stock awards and option awards are reported in the table above pursuant to applicable SEC regulations that require that we report the full grant-date fair value of grants in the year in which such grants are made. Because option awards and stock awards vest annually in installments commencing on the first anniversary of the date of the award, none of the directors actually recognized any income from the awards during the year ended December 31, 2017. The amounts presented for stock awards reflect the aggregate fair value at the grant date of $14.66 per share. The amounts presented for stock options are based on the fair value of stock options computed using the Black-Scholes model. Fair values of stock options differ due to certain directors having retirement dates under the Company’s by-laws earlier than the ten year exercise period of the options, which affects the measurement of the fair value of the options. The assumptions used in the valuation of these awards are included in Note 14 to the audited financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 as filed with the SEC.
(3) As of December 31, 2017, each non-employee director held 7,042 shares of unvested restricted stock and 16,302 unexercised stock options at an exercise price of $14.66 per share.

Supplemental Retirement Plan. Envision Bank maintains a supplemental retirement plan for the benefit of directors, former directors, and key executives selected by Envision Bank’s board of directors. Mr. Pierce and Ms. Wentzell are currently the only active participants in the plan. The plan is an unfunded, non-qualified plan which is intended to qualify as a “top hat” plan for purposes of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”).

Table of Contents

Upon a participant’s early or normal retirement, he or she will receive a benefit payable in annual installments for his or her lifetime. If a participant terminates prior to attaining ten years of service on Envision Bank’s board of directors, then, upon such termination of service, all benefits under the plan will be forfeited.

If a participant is terminated by Envision Bank without cause or voluntarily resigns for good reason after attaining ten years of service but prior to his or her early retirement date, then Envision Bank will distribute the participant’s accrued liability retirement account in accordance with his or her irrevocable distribution election. If a participant is terminated by Envision Bank without cause or voluntarily resigns for good reason after attaining ten years of service and after his or her early retirement date, then the participant will be fully vested in his or her retirement benefits, which benefits will be paid in accordance with his or her irrevocable distribution election. If a participant’s service terminates due to disability, then Envision Bank will distribute the participant’s accrued liability retirement account in accordance with his or her irrevocable distribution election. If a participant’s service is terminated voluntarily or involuntarily, other than for cause, subsequent to a change in control (as defined in the plan), then the participant will receive benefits under the plan as if he or she had remained in service through his or her normal retirement date, which benefits will be paid in accordance with his or her irrevocable distribution election. If any payment under the plan is subject to an excise tax under Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), Envision Bank has agreed to provide additional compensation to the affected participant in order to fully compensate him or her for the amount of the excise tax.

If a participant dies while actively in service with Envision Bank, but prior to attaining the early retirement date and having served on Envision Bank’s board of directors for ten years, then Envision Bank will distribute the participant’s accrued liability retirement account in accordance with his or her irrevocable distribution election. If a participant dies while actively in service with Envision Bank, but after his or her early retirement date or normal retirement date, then the participant will be fully vested in his or her retirement benefits, which benefits will be paid in accordance with his or her irrevocable distribution election.

Employment Arrangements

Employment Agreements. Since March 2013, Envision Bank has been a party to an employment arrangement with James P. McDonough, President and Chief Executive Officer, which provides for an annual salary, currently $385,000, subject to adjustment in accordance with Envision Bank’s customary salary review practices. The employment arrangement provides for Mr. McDonough’s participation in benefits and discretionary bonuses on generally the same terms as those available to similarly situated employees. It also provides for six weeks of paid vacation, reimbursement of reasonable travel, entertainment, and other business expenses, and a monthly car allowance. Mr. McDonough’s employment with Envision Bank is on an “at-will” basis; however, in the event his employment is terminated without “cause” or he resigns for “good reason” (as each such term is defined in the employment agreement), he will be eligible for 12 months of salary continuation following his termination, subject to his providing a release of claims and complying with a non-solicitation and non-disclosure agreement.

Change in Control Agreements. Randolph Bancorp, Inc. and Envision Bank have entered into two-year change in control agreements with each of Michael K. Devlin, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; Martie M. Dwyer, Senior Vice President, Senior Commercial Loan Officer; Ryan J. Kirwin, Senior Vice President, Residential Lending; Richard D. Olson, Jr., Senior Vice President, Retail and Marketing; Donna L. Thaxter, Senior Vice President, Customer Experience in Retail Lending; and Thomas A. Foresta, Senior Vice President, Chief Information Officer. The agreements for all six officers are substantially similar, and provide that if, within 24 months after the effective date of a change in control (as defined in the agreements) of Randolph Bancorp, Inc. or Envision Bank, the executive is involuntarily terminated other than for “cause,” disability, or death, or voluntarily resigns for “good reason” (as each such term is defined therein), the executive will be entitled to a payment equal to two times the sum of (i) the executive’s annual base salary in effect immediately prior to the terminating event (or the executive’s annual base salary in effect immediately prior to the change in control, if higher) and (ii) the executive’s average annual bonus over the three fiscal years immediately prior to the change in control, payable in one lump-sum payment on the date of termination. Any payments required under the agreements will be reduced to the extent necessary to avoid penalties under Section 280G of the Code.

Benefit Plans

401(k) Plan. Envision Bank currently maintains a 401(k) Plan, which is a tax qualified profit sharing plan with a salary deferral feature under Section 401(k) of the Code (the “401(k) Plan”). Generally, employees who have attained age 21 are eligible to participate in the 401(k) Plan, and make salary deferral contributions and share in Envision Bank contributions to the 401(k) Plan.

A participant may contribute up to 75% of his or her compensation to the 401(k) Plan on a pre-tax and after-tax basis, subject to the limitations imposed by the Code. For 2017, the pre-tax deferral contribution limit was $18,000. A participant over age 50 may contribute, on a pre-tax basis, an additional $6,000 to the 401(k) Plan. Generally, a participant will become vested in his or her share of Envision Bank matching contributions and discretionary nonelective contributions under a four-year (25% per year) vesting schedule. A participant is always 100% vested in his or her salary deferral and other Envision Bank contributions.

Generally, a participant (or participant’s beneficiary) may receive a distribution from his or her vested account at retirement, age 59 1/2 (while employed with Envision Bank), death, disability, or termination of employment, and elect for the distribution to be paid in a lump sum.

Employee Stock Ownership Plan. In connection with the Company’s 2016 mutual-to-stock conversion, Envision Bank adopted an employee stock ownership plan, or ESOP, for eligible employees who have attained age 21 and have completed one year of service.

Envision Bank engaged an independent third-party trustee that purchased 469,498 shares of common stock in the Company’s initial public offering. The ESOP funded its purchase in the initial public offering through a loan from the Company (the “ESOP Loan”). The ESOP Loan equaled 100% of the aggregate purchase price of the common stock. The ESOP Loan will be repaid principally from Envision Bank’s contributions to the ESOP and dividends paid, if any, on shares of unallocated common stock held by the ESOP over the 25-year term of the loan. The interest rate for the ESOP Loan is the prevailing prime rate to be reset annually on January 1.

Shares purchased by the ESOP with the proceeds of the ESOP Loan are held in a suspense account and released on a pro rata basis as the loan is repaid. Discretionary contributions to the ESOP and shares released from the suspense account are allocated among participants in accordance with their qualifying employee compensation, on a pro rata basis.

Participants will vest in the benefits allocated under the ESOP upon completion of three years of service. A participant will also become fully vested upon reaching age 55, or at retirement, upon death or disability, or upon termination of the ESOP. Any unvested shares that are forfeited upon a participant’s termination of employment will be reallocated among the remaining ESOP participants.

Table of Contents

Plan participants are entitled to direct the plan trustee on how to vote common stock credited to their accounts. The trustee will vote allocated shares held in the ESOP as instructed by the plan participants and unallocated shares will be voted in the same ratio on any matter as those shares for which instructions are given, subject to the fiduciary responsibilities of the trustee.

Under applicable accounting requirements, compensation expense for a leveraged ESOP is recorded at the fair market value of the ESOP shares when committed to be released to participants’ accounts.

The ESOP must meet certain requirements of the Code and ERISA. Envision Bank has received a favorable determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service regarding the tax-qualified status of the ESOP.

2017 Stock Option and Incentive Plan. The Randolph Bancorp, Inc. 2017 Stock Option and Incentive Plan (the “2017 Plan”) provides the Company the flexibility to grant equity awards to the officers, employees, and non-employee directors of the Company and its subsidiaries, including Envision Bank, in order to attract, retain, and motivate the talented and qualified employees necessary for our continued growth and success.

The material features of the 2017 Plan are:

 

    The maximum number of shares of common stock to be issued under the 2017 Plan is 821,621; provided that the maximum number of shares that may be delivered pursuant to the exercise of stock options (all of which may be granted in the form of incentive stock options) is 586,872 and the maximum number of shares that may be issued as restricted stock awards or restricted stock units is 234,749;

 

    The award of stock options (both incentive and non-qualified options), stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, unrestricted stock, dividend equivalent rights, performance share awards, and cash-based awards is permitted;

 

    Shares of common stock underlying any awards that are forfeited, canceled, or otherwise terminated, other than by exercise, under the 2017 Plan will be added back to the shares of common stock available for issuance. Shares tendered or held back for taxes will not be added back to the reserved pool under the 2017 Plan. Upon the exercise of a stock appreciation right that is settled in shares of common stock, the full number of shares underlying the award will be charged to the reserved pool. Additionally, shares we reacquire on the open market will not be added to the reserved pool under the 2017 Plan;

 

    Stock options and stock appreciation rights will not be re-priced in any manner without shareholder approval;

 

    The value of all awards made under the 2017 Plan and all other cash compensation paid by us to any non-employee director in any calendar year may not exceed $400,000;

 

    Any material amendment to the 2017 Plan is subject to approval by our shareholders; and

 

    The term of the 2017 Plan will expire on May 23, 2027.

PROPOSAL 2: RATIFICATION OF APPOINTMENT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC

ACCOUNTING FIRM

Crowe Horwath LLP currently serves as our independent registered public accounting firm, and that firm conducted the audit of our consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. The audit committee has appointed Crowe Horwath LLP to serve as the independent registered public accounting firm to conduct an audit of our consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018.

Although ratification by shareholders is not required by law or by our by-laws, the audit committee believes that submission of its selection to shareholders is a matter of good corporate governance. Even if the appointment is ratified, the audit committee, in its discretion, may select a different independent registered public accounting firm at any time if the audit committee believes that such a change would be in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. If our shareholders do not ratify the appointment of Crowe Horwath LLP, the audit committee will take that fact into consideration, together with such other factors it deems relevant, in determining its next selection of independent auditors.

It is anticipated that a representative of Crowe Horwath LLP will attend the annual meeting of shareholders, will have an opportunity to make a statement if he or she desires to do so, and will be available to respond to appropriate questions.

Fee Disclosure

Crowe Horwath LLP audited the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016. During the years ended December 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, we paid the following fees to Crowe Horwath LLP:

 

     2017      2016  

Audit fees(a)

   $ 163,000      $ 231,689  

Audit-related fees(b)

     5,000        116,374  
  

 

 

    

 

 

 

Total fees paid to Crowe Horwath LLP

   $ 168,000      $ 348,063  
  

 

 

    

 

 

 

 

(a) Annual audit of consolidated financial statements, reviews of quarterly financial statements, and other services provided by Crowe Horwath LLP in connection with statutory and regulatory filings.
(b) Audit related fees include fees billed in each of the last two fiscal years for consents issued, consultations related to various transactions and other matters.

Pre-Approval Policies and Procedures of Our Audit Committee

The audit committee has adopted a policy whereby engagement of the independent registered public accounting firm for audit services and for non-audit services shall be pre-approved by the audit committee, subject to the de minimis exception described in Section 10A(i)(1)(B) of the Exchange Act for non-audit services. During 2017, the audit committee pre-approved 100% of the fees paid to Crowe Horwath LLP.

The audit committee has considered whether the provision of the services identified under the heading “Audit-related fees,” is compatible with maintaining Crowe Horwath LLP’s independence and has determined that provision of such services is consistent with maintaining the principal auditor’s independence.

The Board unanimously recommends a vote “FOR” the ratification of the appointment of Crowe Horwath LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for 2018.

OTHER MATTERS

Solicitation of Proxies

We will pay the cost of solicitation of proxies. Our directors, officers, and employees may solicit proxies personally, by telephone, via the internet, or by mail without additional compensation for such activities. We also will request persons, firms, and corporations holding shares in their names or in the names of their nominees, which are beneficially owned by others, to send proxy statements to and obtain proxies from such beneficial owners. We will reimburse such holders for their reasonable expenses.

Shareholder Proposals

Under SEC rules, we must receive proposals that shareholders wish to include in the proxy statement for next year’s annual meeting on or before January 21, 2019. However, if next year’s annual meeting is held on a date more than 30 calendar days from the anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting, a shareholder proposal must be received by a reasonable time before we begin to print and mail our proxy statement for such annual meeting.

In addition, our by-laws provide that shareholders who wish to present nominations or proposals for consideration at next year’s annual meeting must submit them to us in accordance with the procedures set forth in our by-laws, and such submissions must be received by us not earlier than January 21, 2019 and not later than February 20, 2019. However, if the date of the annual meeting is advanced by more than 30 days before or delayed by more than 60 days after the anniversary of the preceding year’s annual meeting, such nominations and proposals must be received not earlier than the close of business on the 120th day prior to such annual meeting and not later than the close of business on the later of the 90th day prior to such annual meeting or the tenth day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made. A copy of the by-laws may be obtained from the Company.

Attendance at the Meeting

All shareholders of record of shares of common stock at the close of business on the record date, or their designated proxies, are authorized to attend the annual meeting. If you are not a shareholder of record but hold shares through a broker, bank, or other nominee, you should bring proof of beneficial ownership as of the record date, such as an account statement reflecting your stock ownership as of the record date, a copy of the voting instruction card provided by your broker, bank, or other nominee, or other similar evidence of ownership. We are not obligated to admit persons lacking proof of ownership to the annual meeting. Please also bring valid government-issued photo identification, such as a driver’s license or passport, to the annual meeting to help guarantee your admission to the annual meeting. We are not obligated to admit persons lacking such identification to the annual meeting. Cameras, recording devices, and other electronic devices will not be permitted.

Important Notice Regarding Delivery of Shareholder Documents

The SEC has adopted rules that allow us to deliver a single annual report, proxy statement, proxy statement combined with a prospectus, or any information statement to any household at which two or more shareholders reside who share the same last name or whom we believe to be members of the same family. This is practice is known as “householding.”

If you share the same last name and address with one or more shareholders, from now on, unless we receive contrary instructions from you (or from one of these other shareholders), you and all other shareholders who have your last name and live at the same home address will receive only one copy of any of the Company’s annual report, proxy statement for our annual meeting, proxy statement we file and deliver in connection with any other meeting of shareholders, proxy statement combined with a prospectus or information statement. We will include with the householded materials for our annual meeting, or any other shareholders’ meeting, a separate proxy card for each registered shareholder who shares your last name and lives at your home address.

If you do not wish to participate in the householding program, please contact our transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, at 800-937-5449 to “opt-out” or revoke your consent. If you “opt-out” or revoke your consent to householding, each shareholder residing at your address will receive individual copies of the Company’s proxy statement, annual report and other future shareholder mailings to the extent the Company mails such materials to its shareholders.

 

24


Table of Contents

If you do not object to householding, (1) you are agreeing that your household will only receive one copy of future shareholder mailings, and (2) your consent will be implied and householding will start 60 days after the mailing of this notice, to the extent you have not previously consented to participation in the householding program. Your affirmative or implied consent to householding will remain in effect until you revoke it. The Company shall begin sending individual copies of applicable shareholder communications subject to householding rules to a shareholder within 30 days after revocation by the shareholder of prior affirmative or implied consent. Your participation in the householding program is encouraged. It will reduce the volume of duplicate information received at your household as well as the cost to the Company of preparing and mailing duplicate materials.

Other Matters

The Board does not know of any matters other than those described in this proxy statement that will be presented for action at the annual meeting. If other matters are presented, proxies will be voted in accordance with the discretion of the proxy holders.
