Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan Agreements

On August 31, 2018, Mid Penn Bank (the “Bank”), the wholly owned subsidiary of Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into supplemental executive retirement plan agreements (“SERPs”) with the following named executive officers: Rory G. Ritrievi, President and Chief Executive Officer, Michael D. Peduzzi, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Scott W. Micklewright, Executive Vice President and Chief Lending Officer of the Bank, and Justin T. Webb, Executive Vice President and Chief Risk Officer of the Bank (each, an “Executive” and, collectively, the “Executives”).

Each SERP provides for the monthly payment of a fixed cash benefit over a period of fifteen (15) years, commencing on the first day of the month following the Executive’s separation from service: (i) occurring on or after reaching normal retirement age (age 70); (ii) due to disability; (iii) due to death; or (iv) within two (2) years following a change in control of the Bank. One-half of the benefit vests on January 1, 2022, with an additional 10% vesting each January 1 thereafter until fully vested on January 1, 2027. Any unvested portion of the benefit fully vests upon a change in control of the Bank. The terms of the SERPs are identical for each Executive, except for the amount of the annual benefit, which is as follows: Mr. Ritrievi - $125,000; Mr. Peduzzi - $90,000; and Messrs. Micklewright and Webb - $80,000. The Board of Directors of the Bank reserves the right to increase the amount of the benefit from time to time, in its discretion.

The SERP also provides that, in the event that the payments to be received by the Executive, when taken together with payments and benefits payable to or on behalf of the Executive under any other plans, contracts or arrangements, will be subject to excise tax under Internal Revenue Code Section 4999, the Executive shall receive an additional payment in an amount equal to such excise tax actually paid by the Executive, without regard to any additional tax, interest or penalty payable by the Executive on that additional amount (the “Limited Gross Up Payment”).

The SERP also contains non-competition and non-solicitation covenants substantially similar to those contained in the employment agreement to which Mr. Ritrievi is currently a party (the “Employment Agreement”) and the change in control agreement to which each of the other Executives is a party (the “Change in Control Agreement”). A violation of such covenants, except in limited circumstances, would result in the forfeiture of any unpaid benefits to the Executive.

The foregoing summary of the SERP agreements is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such SERP agreements, the form of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1, and is incorporated herein by reference.

Amendment to Employment Agreement and Change in Control Severance Agreements

In order to ensure consistency among the compensatory agreements to which each Executive is a party, on August 31, 2018, the Company, Bank and Mr. Ritrievi entered into an amendment to his Employment Agreement, and the Bank and each other Executive entered into an amendment to his Change in Control Agreement, solely to provide for the same Limited Gross Up as that contained in the SERP. All other terms of the Employment Agreement and Change in Control Agreement remain unchanged.

The foregoing summary of the amendment to the Employment Agreement and the amendment to the Change in Control Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such amendments, which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.2 and 10.3, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.

1.8    “Competing Business” means a business or enterprise (other than the Corporation, the Bank and their Affiliates) that is engaged in the commercial banking, financial services, investment or insurance business in which the Corporation, the Bank or any of their Affiliates is engaged.

1.9    “Corporation” means Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc.

1.10    “Disability” means a condition of the Executive whereby the Executive either: (i) is unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than twelve (12) months; or (ii) is, by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than twelve (12) months, receiving income replacement benefits for a period of not less than three (3) months under an accident and health plan covering employees or directors of the Bank. Medical determination of Disability may be made by either the Social Security Administration or by the provider of disability insurance covering employees or directors of the Bank, provided that the definition of “disability” applied under such insurance program complies with the requirements of the preceding sentence.

1.21    “Separation from Service” means termination of the Executive’s employment with the Bank and its Affiliates for reasons other than death or Disability. Whether a Separation from Service has occurred shall be determined in accordance with the requirements of Code Section 409A based on whether the facts and circumstances indicate that the Bank and Executive reasonably anticipated that no further services would be performed after a certain date or that the level of bona fide services the Executive would perform after such date (whether as an employee or as an independent contractor) would permanently decrease to no more than twenty percent (20%) of the average level of bona fide services performed (whether as an employee or an independent contractor) over the immediately preceding thirty-six (36) month period (or the full period of services to the Bank if the Executive has been providing services to the Bank less than thirty-six (36) months). A Separation from Service will not be deemed to have occurred while the Executive is on military leave, sick leave, or other bona fide leave of absence if the period of such leave does not exceed six (6) months or, if longer, the period for which a statute or contract provides the Executive with the right to reemployment with the Bank. If the Executive’s leave exceeds six (6) months, but the Executive is not entitled to reemployment under a statute or contract, the Executive incurs a Separation from Service on the next day following the expiration of such six (6) month period. In determining whether a Separation from Service occurs the Plan Administrator shall take into account, among other things, the definition of “service recipient” and “employer” set forth in Treasury regulation §1.409A-l(h)(3). The Plan Administrator shall have full and final authority to determine conclusively whether a Separation from Service occurs and the date of such Separation from Service.

1.22    “Specified Employee” means an employee who at the time of Separation from Service is a key employee of the Bank or its Affiliates, if any stock of the Bank or its Affiliates is publicly traded on an established securities market or otherwise. For purposes of this Agreement, an employee is a “key employee” if the employee meets the requirements of Code Section 416(i)(1)(A)(i), (ii), or (iii) (applied in accordance with the regulations thereunder and disregarding section 416(i)(5)) at any time during the twelve (12) month period ending on December 31 (the “identification period”). If the employee is a key employee during an identification period, the employee is treated as a key employee for purposes of this Agreement during the twelve (12) month period that begins on the first day of April following the close of the identification period.

 

3


1.23    “Termination for Cause” means Separation from Service for “Cause,” as such term is defined in [Executive’s Employment Agreement/Change in Control Severance Agreement] with the Corporation and the Bank dated November 3, 2016, as the same may be amended from time to time.

Article 2

Distributions

2.1    Normal Retirement Benefit. Upon Separation from Service after attaining Normal Retirement Age, the Bank shall distribute to the Executive the benefit described in this Section 2.1 in lieu of any other benefit under this Article.

 

  2.1.1

Amount of Benefit. The initial annual benefit under this Section 2.1 is                                           Dollars ($                    ). The Bank may increase the annual benefit under this Section 2.1 at the sole and absolute discretion of the Board. Any such discretionary increase shall require the recalculation of all the amounts on Schedule A attached hereto.

 

  2.1.2

Distribution of Benefit. The Bank shall distribute the annual benefit to the Executive in twelve (12) equal monthly installments commencing on the first day of the month following the Normal Retirement Date. The annual benefit shall be distributed to the Executive for fifteen (15) years.

2.2    Early Termination Benefit. If Early Termination occurs, the Bank shall distribute to the Executive the benefit described in this Section 2.2 in lieu of any other benefit under this Article.

 

  2.2.1

Amount of Benefit. The annual benefit under this Section 2.2 is the Early Termination Annual Benefit set forth on Schedule A for the Plan Year ended immediately prior to the date on which the Early Termination occurs. Additionally, the annual benefit amount shall be increased by a pro-rated amount relative to the Executive’s service during the partial Plan Year in which the Early Termination occurs. This amount will be added to the annual benefit amount at the end of the preceding Plan Year on Schedule A. For example, assuming that Early Termination occurs on January 31, 2023, the Early Termination Annual Benefit would be the sum of the Early Termination Annual Benefit for the January 1 – December 31, 2022 Plan Year, plus a pro-rated portion of the Early Termination Annual Benefit for the January 1 – December 31, 2023 Plan Year).

 

  2.2.2

Distribution of Benefit. The Bank shall distribute the annual benefit to the Executive in twelve (12) equal monthly installments commencing on the first day of the month following the Separation from Service. The annual benefit shall be distributed to the Executive for fifteen (15) years.

2.3    Disability Benefit. If the Executive experiences a Disability prior to Normal Retirement Age, the Bank shall distribute to the Executive the benefit described in this Section 2.3 in lieu of any other benefit under this Article.

 

  2.3.1

Amount of Benefit. The annual benefit under this Section 2.3 is the Disability Annual Benefit set forth on Schedule A for the Plan Year ended immediately prior to the date on which the Disability occurs. Additionally, the annual benefit

 

5


  amount shall be increased by a pro-rated amount relative to the Executive’s service during the partial Plan Year in which the Separation from Service occurs. This amount will be added to the annual benefit amount at the end of the preceding Plan Year on Schedule A, consistent with the example in Section 2.2.1.

 

  2.3.2

Distribution of Benefit. The Bank shall distribute the annual benefit to the Executive in twelve (12) equal monthly installments commencing on the first day of the month following the Disability. The annual benefit shall be distributed to the Executive for fifteen (15) years.

2.4    Change in Control Benefit. If a Change in Control occurs prior to Normal Retirement Age followed by Separation from Service within twenty-four (24) months following the Change in Control, the Bank shall distribute to the Executive the benefit described in this Section 2.4 in lieu of any other benefit under this Article.

 

  2.4.1

Amount of Benefit. The annual benefit under this Section 2.4 shall be equal to the amount of the benefit payable under Section 2.1.1, as the same may be increased from time to time in accordance with the terms thereof.

 

  2.4.2

Distribution of Benefit. The Bank shall distribute the annual benefit to the Executive in twelve (12) equal monthly installments commencing on the first day of the month following Separation from Service. The annual benefit shall be distributed to the Executive for fifteen (15) years.

2.5    Death Prior to Commencement of Benefit Payments. If the Executive dies prior to Separation from Service and Normal Retirement Age, the Bank shall distribute to the Beneficiary the benefit described in this Section 2.5. This benefit shall be distributed in lieu of any other benefit under this Article.

 

  2.5.1

Amount of Benefit. The benefit under this Section 2.5 is the Pre-retirement Death Benefit amount set forth on Schedule A for the Plan Year ended immediately prior to the date on which the Separation from Service due to death occurs. Additionally, the annual benefit amount shall be increased by a pro-rated amount relative to the Executive’s service during the partial Plan Year in which the Separation from Service due to death takes place. This amount will be added to the annual benefit amount at the end of the preceding Plan Year on Schedule A, consistent with the example in Section 2.2.1.

 

  2.5.2

Distribution of Benefit. The Bank shall distribute the annual benefit to the Beneficiary in twelve (12) equal monthly installments commencing within sixty (60) days of receipt by the Bank of the Executive’s death certificate. The annual benefit shall be distributed to the Beneficiary for fifteen (15) years. The Beneficiary shall be required to provide to the Bank the Executive’s death certificate as a condition precedent to receiving payments hereunder.

2.6    Death During Distribution of a Benefit. If the Executive dies after benefit payments have commenced under this Agreement, but before receiving all such payments, the

 

6


Bank shall pay the remaining benefits to the Executive’s Beneficiary at the same time and in the same amounts they would have been paid to the Executive had the Executive survived. The Beneficiary shall be required to provide to the Bank the Executive’s death certificate as a condition precedent to receiving payments hereunder.

2.7    Restriction on Commencement of Distributions. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if the Executive is considered a Specified Employee, the provisions of this Section 2.7 shall govern all distributions hereunder. If benefit distributions which would otherwise be made to the Executive due to Separation from Service are limited by Code Section 409A and regulations thereunder because the Executive is a Specified Employee, then such distributions shall not be made during the first six (6) months following Separation from Service. Rather, any distribution which would otherwise be paid to the Executive during such period shall be accumulated and paid to the Executive in a lump sum on the first day of the seventh month following Separation from Service. All subsequent distributions shall be paid in the manner specified.

2.8    Distributions Upon Taxation of Amounts Deferred. If, pursuant to Code Section 409A, the Federal Insurance Contributions Act or other state, local or foreign tax, the Executive becomes subject to tax on the amounts deferred hereunder, then the Bank may make a limited distribution to the Executive in a manner that conforms to the requirements of Code Section 409A. Any such distribution will decrease the Executive’s benefits distributable under this Agreement.

2.9    Acceleration of Payments. Except as specifically permitted herein, no acceleration of the time or schedule of any payment may be made hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, payments may be accelerated, in accordance with the provisions of Treasury Regulation §1.409A-3(j)(4) in the following circumstances: (i) as a result of certain domestic relations orders; (ii) in compliance with ethics agreements with the federal government; (iii) in compliance with the ethics laws or conflicts of interest laws; (iv) in limited cashouts (but not in excess of the limit under Code Section 402(g)(l)(B)); (v) to pay employment-related taxes; or (vi) to pay any taxes that may become due at any time that the Agreement fails to meet the requirements of Code Section 409A.

2.10    Delays in Payment by Bank. A payment may be delayed to a date after the designated payment date under any of the circumstances described below, and the provision will not fail to meet the requirements of establishing a permissible payment event. The delay in the payment will not constitute a subsequent deferral election, so long as the Bank treats all payments to similarly situated Participants on a reasonably consistent basis.

 

  2.10.1

Payments subject to Code Section 162(m). If the Bank reasonably anticipates that the Bank’s deduction with respect to any distribution under this Agreement would be limited or eliminated by application of Code Section 162(m), then to the extent deemed necessary by the Bank to ensure that the entire amount of any distribution from this Agreement is deductible, the Bank may delay payment of any amount that would otherwise be distributed under this Agreement. The delayed amounts shall be distributed to the Executive (or the Beneficiary in the event of the Executive’s death) at the earliest date the Bank reasonably anticipates that the deduction of the payment of the amount will not be limited or eliminated by application of Code Section 162(m).

 

7


  2.10.2

Payments that would violate Federal securities laws or other applicable law. A payment may be delayed where the Bank reasonably anticipates that the making of the payment will violate Federal securities laws or other applicable law provided that the payment is made at the earliest date at which the Bank reasonably anticipates that the making of the payment will not cause such violation. The making of a payment that would cause inclusion in gross income or the application of any penalty provision of the Code is not treated as a violation of law.

 

  2.10.3

Solvency. A payment may be delayed where the payment would jeopardize the ability of the Bank to continue as a going concern.

2.11     Treatment of Payment as Made on Designated Payment Date. Solely for purposes of determining compliance with Code Section 409A, any payment under this Agreement made after the required payment date shall be deemed made on the required payment date provided that such payment is made by the latest of: (i) the end of the calendar year in which the payment is due; (ii) the 15th day of the third calendar month following the payment due date; (iii) if the Bank cannot calculate the payment amount on account of administrative impracticality which is beyond the Executive’s control, the end of the first calendar year which payment calculation is practicable; and (iv) if the Bank does not have sufficient funds to make the payment without jeopardizing the Bank’s solvency, in the first calendar year in which the Bank’s funds are sufficient to make the payment.

2.12     Facility of Payment. If a distribution is to be made to a minor, or to a person who is otherwise incompetent, then the Plan Administrator may make such distribution: (i) to the legal guardian, or if none, to a parent of a minor payee with whom the payee maintains his or her residence; or (ii) to the conservator or administrator or, if none, to the person having custody of an incompetent payee. Any such distribution shall fully discharge the Bank and the Plan Administrator from further liability on account thereof.

2.13     Excise Tax Payment. Anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, if any of the payments or benefits received or to be received by Executive pursuant to this Agreement (which the parties agree will not include any portion of payments allocated to the non-solicitation and non-competition provisions of Section 4.5 that are classified as payments of reasonable compensation for purposes of Code Section 280G), when taken together with payments and benefits payable to or on behalf of Executive under any other plans, contracts or arrangements with the Corporation or the Bank (all such payments and benefits, the “Total Payments”), will be subject to excise tax imposed under Code Section 4999 (the “Excise Tax”), then Executive shall receive an additional payment in an amount equal to the amount of the Excise Tax actually payable by Executive, without regard to any additional tax, interest or penalty payable by Executive on such additional amount. For example, if the Total Payments would result in an Excise Tax payable by Executive of $300,000, then Executive will be entitled to receive an additional payment of $300,000; however, Executive shall be solely responsible for

 

8


any additional tax, interest or penalties resulting from the additional $300,000 payment. All calculations required to be made under this Section, including the portion of any payments to be allocated to the restrictive covenants set forth in Section 4.5 (or any payments to be allocated to a separate restrictive covenant agreement, if any) will be made by the Corporation’s independent public accountants, subject to the right of Executive’s representative to review the same. All amounts required to be paid pursuant to this Section shall be paid at the time any withholding may be required (or, if earlier, the time Executive shall be required to pay such amounts) under applicable law, and any additional amounts to which Executive may be entitled shall be paid or reimbursed no later than fifteen (15) days following confirmation of such amount by the Corporation’s independent public accountants; provided, however, that any payments to be made under this Section shall in all events be made no later than the end of Executive’s taxable year next following the taxable year in which the Executive remits such Excise Tax payment. The parties recognize that the actual implementation of the provisions of this Section are complex and agree to deal with each other in good faith to resolve any questions or disagreements arising hereunder.

2.14    Change in Form or Timing of Distributions. For distribution of benefits under this Article 2, the Executive and the Bank may, subject to the terms of Section 7.1, amend this Agreement to delay the timing or change the form of distributions. Any such amendment (a) may not accelerate the time or schedule of any distribution, except as provided in Code Section 409A; (b) must, for benefits distributable under Section 2.2 be made at least twelve (12) months prior to the first scheduled distribution; (c) must, for benefits distributable under Sections 2.1, 2.2, and 2.4, delay the commencement of distributions for a minimum of five (5) years from the date the first distribution was originally scheduled to be made; and (d) must take effect not less than twelve (12) months after the amendment is made.

Article 3

Beneficiaries

3.1    In General. The Executive shall have the right, at any time, to designate a Beneficiary to receive any benefit distributions under this Agreement upon the death of the Executive. The Beneficiary designated under this Agreement may be the same as or different from the beneficiary designated under any other plan of the Bank in which the Executive participates.

3.2    Designation. The Executive shall designate a Beneficiary by completing and signing the Beneficiary Designation Form and delivering it to the Plan Administrator or its designated agent. If the Executive names someone other than the Executive’s spouse as a Beneficiary, the Plan Administrator may, in its sole discretion, determine that spousal consent is required to be provided in a form designated by the Plan Administrator, executed by the Executive’s spouse and returned to the Plan Administrator. The Executive’s beneficiary designation shall be deemed automatically revoked if the Beneficiary predeceases the Executive or if the Executive names a spouse as Beneficiary and the marriage is subsequently dissolved. The Executive shall have the right to change a Beneficiary by completing, signing and otherwise complying with the terms of the Beneficiary Designation Form and the Plan Administrator’s rules and procedures. Upon the acceptance by the Plan Administrator of a new Beneficiary Designation Form, all Beneficiary designations previously filed shall be cancelled. The Plan Administrator shall be entitled to rely on the last Beneficiary Designation Form filed by the Executive and accepted by the Plan Administrator prior to the Executive’s death.

 

9


3.3    Acknowledgment. No designation or change in designation of a Beneficiary shall be effective until received, accepted and acknowledged in writing by the Plan Administrator or its designated agent.

3.4    No Beneficiary Designation. If the Executive dies without a valid beneficiary designation, or if all designated Beneficiaries predecease the Executive, then the Executive’s spouse shall be the designated Beneficiary. If the Executive has no surviving spouse, any benefit shall be paid to the Executive’s estate.

3.5    Facility of Distribution. If the Plan Administrator determines in its discretion that a benefit is to be distributed to a minor, to a person declared incompetent or to a person incapable of handling the disposition of that person’s property, the Plan Administrator may direct distribution of such benefit to the guardian, legal representative or person having the care or custody of such minor, incompetent person or incapable person. The Plan Administrator may require proof of incompetence, minority or guardianship as it may deem appropriate prior to distribution of the benefit. Any distribution of a benefit shall be a distribution for the account of the Executive and the Beneficiary, as the case may be, and shall completely discharge any liability under this Agreement for such distribution amount.

Article 4

General Limitations

4.1    Termination for Cause. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, the Bank shall not distribute any benefit under this Agreement if the Executive’s employment with the Bank is terminated by the Bank due to a Termination for Cause.

4.2    Misstatement. No benefit shall be distributed if an insurance company which issued a life insurance policy covering the Executive and owned by the Bank denies coverage (i) for material misstatements of fact made by the Executive on an application for such life insurance, or (ii) for any other reason.

4.3    Removal. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, the Bank shall not distribute any benefit under this Agreement if the Executive is subject to a final removal or prohibition order issued by an appropriate federal banking agency pursuant to Section 8(e) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act.

4.4    Regulatory Restrictions. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, any payments made to the Executive pursuant to this Agreement, or otherwise, shall be subject upon compliance with 12 U.S.C. Section 1828 and FDIC Regulation 12 CFR Part 359, Golden Parachute Indemnification Payments and any other regulations or guidance promulgated thereunder.

 

10


4.5    Competition after Separation from Service. The Executive shall forfeit, for the Executive and the Beneficiary, any unpaid benefits payable hereunder, if the Executive:

 

  (a)

directly or indirectly, and whether as principal or investor or as an employee, officer, director, manager, partner, consultant, agent, or otherwise, alone or in association with any other Person, becomes involved in a Competing Business (as defined below) in any county in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in which the Corporation, the Bank or any of their Affiliates has maintained a branch or other office during the period of Executive’s employment (excluding an ownership interest of $100,000 or less in the stock of one or more publicly-traded companies); or

 

  (b)

directly or indirectly, whether alone or in association with any other Person, for the purpose of conducting or engaging in any Competing Business, calls upon, solicits, or advises any Person who is, or was, during the then most recent 12-month period, a customer of the Corporation, the Bank or any of their Affiliates, or takes away or interferes or attempts to take away or interfere with any custom, trade, business, patronage, or affairs of the Corporation, the Bank or any of their Affiliates, or hires or attempts to hire, or otherwise engages or attempts to engage as an independent contractor or otherwise any Person who is, or was during the then most recent 12-month period, an employee, officer, representative, or agent of the Corporation, the Bank or any of their Affiliates, or solicits, induces, or attempts to solicit or induce any Person who is an employee, officer, representative, or agent of the Corporation, the Bank or any of their Affiliates to leave the employ of the Corporation, the Bank or any of their Affiliates or cease their business relationship with Corporation, the Bank or any of their Affiliates (as the case may be), or violate the terms of their contracts, or any employment arrangements, with the Corporation, the Bank or any of their Affiliates.

The restrictive provisions set forth in this Section 4.5 are intended to operate independently of, and not replace or be superseded by, any similar provisions contained in any other agreement between Executive and the Bank or Corporation. Although Executive and the Corporation and the Bank consider the restrictions contained in this Section 4.5 to be the minimum restriction reasonable for the purposes of preserving the Corporation’s and the Bank’s goodwill and other proprietary rights, if a final determination is made by a court that the time or territory, or any other restriction contained in this Section 4.5 is an unreasonable or otherwise unenforceable restriction against the Executive, the provisions of this Section 4.5 will not be rendered void, but will be deemed amended to apply as to such maximum time and territory and to such other extent as the court may determine to be reasonable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 4.5 shall not apply following: (i) a Separation of Service after attaining Normal Retirement Age if such Separation of Service is the result of an involuntary termination of Executive’s employment by the Bank (other than a Termination for Cause); (ii) a Change in Control; or (iii) a Separation of Service prior to attaining Normal Retirement Age if such Separation of Service is the result of an involuntary termination of Executive’s employment by the Bank (other than a Termination for Cause); provided, however, that in the event of an involuntary termination as described in clause (iii), the provisions of Section 4.5(b) shall be effective for one (1) year following the Separation of Service.

Article 7

Amendments and Termination

7.1    Amendments, Generally. Except as provided in Section 7.2, this Agreement may be amended only by a written agreement signed by both the Bank and the Executive.

7.2    Amendment to Ensure Proper Characterization of Agreement. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, this Agreement may be amended by the Bank at any time, if found necessary in the opinion of the Bank: (i) to ensure that the Agreement is characterized as a plan of deferred compensation maintained for a select group of management or highly compensated employees as described under ERISA; (ii) to conform the Agreement to the requirements of any applicable law; or (iii) to comply with the written instructions of the Bank’s auditors or banking regulators.

7.3    Agreement Termination, Generally. Except as provided in Section 7.4, this Agreement may be terminated only by a written agreement signed by the Bank and the

 

14


Executive. Such termination shall not cause a distribution of benefits under this Agreement. Rather, upon such termination, benefit distributions will be made at the earliest distribution event permitted under Article 2.

7.4    Effect of Complete Terminations. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 7.3, and subject to the requirements of Code Section 409A and Treasury Regulations §1.409A-3(j)(4)(ix), at certain times the Bank may completely terminate and liquidate the Agreement. In the event of such a complete termination in accordance with subsections 7.4.1 or 7.4.3 below, the Bank shall pay the Executive the Accrued Benefit. In the event of such a complete termination in accordance with subsection 7.4.2 below, the Bank shall pay the Executive the present value, determined using the Discount Rate, of the benefit described in Section 2.4 hereof. In either event, such complete termination of the Agreement shall occur only under the following circumstances and conditions:

 

  7.4.1

Corporate Dissolution or Bankruptcy. The Bank may terminate and liquidate this Agreement within twelve (12) months of a corporate dissolution taxed under Code Section 331, or with the approval of a bankruptcy court pursuant to 11 U.S.C.§503(b)(1)(A), provided that all benefits paid under the Agreement are included in the Executive’s gross income in the latest of: (i) the calendar year which the termination occurs; (ii) the calendar year in which the amount is no longer subject to a substantial risk of forfeiture; or (iii) the first calendar year in which the payment is administratively practicable.

 

  7.4.2

Change in Control. The Bank may terminate and liquidate this Agreement by taking irrevocable action to terminate and liquidate within the thirty (30) days preceding or the twelve (12) months following a Change in Control. This Agreement will then be treated as terminated only if all substantially similar arrangements sponsored by the Bank which are treated as deferred under a single plan under Treasury Regulations §1.409A-l(c)(2) are terminated and liquidated with respect to each participant who experienced the Change in Control so that the Executive and any participants in any such similar arrangements are required to receive all amounts of compensation deferred under the terminated arrangements within twelve (12) months of the date the Bank takes the irrevocable action to terminate the arrangements.

 

  7.4.3

Discretionary Termination. The Bank may terminate and liquidate this Agreement provided that: (i) the termination does not occur proximate to a downturn in the financial health of the Bank; (ii) all arrangements sponsored by the Bank and Affiliates that would be aggregated with any terminated arrangements under Treasury Regulations §1.409A-l(c) are terminated; (iii) no payments, other than payments that would be payable under the terms of this Agreement if the termination had not occurred, are made within twelve (12) months of the date the Bank takes the irrevocable action to terminate this Agreement; (iv) all payments are made within twenty-four (24) months following the date the Bank takes the irrevocable action to terminate and liquidate this Agreement; and (v) neither the Bank nor any of its Affiliates adopts a new arrangement that would be aggregated with any terminated arrangement under Treasury Regulations §1.409A-l(c) if the Executive participated in both arrangements at any time within three (3) years following the date the Bank takes the irrevocable action to terminate this Agreement.

Article 8

Miscellaneous

8.1    Binding Effect. This Agreement shall bind the Executive, Beneficiary and the Bank and their respective successors, heirs, executors and administrators.

8.2    No Effect on Other Rights. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Bank and the Executive as to the subject matter hereof. No rights are granted to the Executive by virtue of this Agreement other than those specifically set forth herein. Nothing contained herein will confer upon the Executive the right to be retained in the service of the Bank nor limit the right of the Bank to discharge or otherwise deal with the Executive without regard to the existence hereof.

8.3    Non-Transferability. Benefits under this Agreement cannot be sold, transferred, assigned, pledged, attached or encumbered in any manner.

8.4    Tax Withholding and Reporting. The Bank shall withhold any taxes that are required to be withheld, including but not limited to taxes owed under Code Section 409A from the benefits provided under this Agreement. The Executive acknowledges that the Bank’s sole liability regarding taxes is to forward any amounts withheld to the appropriate taxing authorities. The Bank shall satisfy all applicable reporting requirements, including those under Code Section 409A.

8.5    Applicable Law. This Agreement and all rights hereunder shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, except to the extent preempted by the laws of the United States of America.

8.6    Unfunded Arrangement. The Executive and the Beneficiary are general unsecured creditors of the Bank for the distribution of benefits under this Agreement. The benefits represent the mere promise by the Bank to distribute such benefits. The rights to benefits are not subject in any manner to anticipation, alienation, sale, transfer, assignment, pledge, encumbrance, attachment or garnishment by creditors. Any insurance on the Executive’s life or other informal funding asset is a general asset of the Bank to which the Executive and Beneficiary have no preferred or secured claim.

8.7    Reorganization. The Bank shall not merge or consolidate into or with another bank, or reorganize, or sell substantially all of its assets to another bank, firm or person unless such succeeding or continuing bank, firm or person agrees to assume and discharge the obligations of the Bank under this Agreement. Upon the occurrence of such an event, the term “Bank” as used in this Agreement shall be deemed to refer to the successor or survivor entity.

 

16


8.8    Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Bank and the Executive as to the subject matter hereof. No rights are granted to the Executive by virtue of this Agreement other than those specifically set forth herein.

8.9    Interpretation. Wherever the fulfillment of the intent and purpose of this Agreement requires and the context will permit, the use of the masculine gender includes the feminine and use of the singular includes the plural.

8.10    Alternative Action. In the event it shall become impossible for the Bank or the Plan Administrator to perform any act required by this Agreement due to regulatory or other constraints, the Bank or Plan Administrator may perform such alternative act as most nearly carries out the intent and purpose of this Agreement and is in the best interests of the Bank, provided that such alternative act does not violate Code Section 409A.

8.11    Headings. Article and section headings are for convenient reference only and shall not control or affect the meaning or construction of any provision herein.

8.12    Validity. If any provision of this Agreement shall be illegal or invalid for any reason, said illegality or invalidity shall not affect the remaining parts hereof, but this Agreement shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal or invalid provision had never been included herein.

8.13    Notice. Any notice, consent or demand required or permitted to be given to the Bank or Plan Administrator under this Agreement shall be sufficient if in writing and hand-delivered or sent by registered or certified mail to the Bank’s principal business office. Any notice or filing required or permitted to be given to the Executive or Beneficiary under this Agreement shall be sufficient if in writing and hand-delivered or sent by mail to the last known address of the Executive or Beneficiary, as appropriate. Any notice shall be deemed given as of the date of delivery or, if delivery is made by mail, as of the date shown on the postmark or on the receipt for registration or certification.

8.14    Coordination with Other Benefits. The benefits provided for the Executive or the Beneficiary under this Agreement are in addition to any other benefits available to the Executive under any other plan or program for employees of the Bank. This Agreement shall supplement and shall not supersede, modify, or amend any other such plan or program except as may otherwise be expressly provided herein.

8.15    Aggregation of Agreement. If the Bank offers other non-qualified deferred compensation plans, this Agreement and those plans shall be treated as a single plan to the extent required under Code Section 409A.

8.16    Compliance with Section 409A. This Agreement shall be interpreted and administered consistent with Code Section 409A. The Bank and the Executive intend that the Agreement comply with the provisions of Code Section 409A to prevent the inclusion in gross income of any amounts deferred hereunder in a taxable year prior to the year in which amounts are actually paid to the Executive or Beneficiary. This Agreement shall be construed, administered and governed in a manner that affects such intent, and the Administrator shall not take any action that would be inconsistent therewith.

Section 3: EX-10.2 (EX-10.2)

EX-10.2

Exhibit 10.2

AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO

EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT

THIS AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT (“Amendment”) is made as of the 31st day of August, 2018, by and between RORY G. RITRIEVI (“Executive”), MID PENN BANCORP, INC. (the “Company”) and MID PENN BANK (the “Bank”).

WITNESSETH

WHEREAS, the Company, the Bank and the Executive entered into an Employment Agreement dated November 3, 2016 (as the same may be amended from time to time, the “Agreement”); and

WHEREAS, the Company and the Executive desire to amend the Agreement as described herein.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements set forth herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound hereby, agree as follows:

1.    Section 17(a) of the Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

Anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, if any of the payments or benefits received or to be received by Executive pursuant to this Agreement (which the parties agree will not include any portion of payments allocated to the non-solicitation and non-competition provisions of Section 6 that are classified as payments of reasonable compensation for purposes of Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”)), when taken together with payments and benefits payable to or on behalf of Executive under any other plans, contracts or arrangements with the Company or the Bank (all such payments and benefits, the “Total Payments”), will be subject to excise tax imposed under Code Section 4999 (the “Excise Tax”), then Executive shall receive an additional payment in an amount equal to the amount of the Excise Tax actually payable by Executive, without regard to any additional tax, interest or penalty payable by Executive on such additional amount. For example, if the Total Payments would result in an Excise Tax payable by Executive of $300,000, then Executive will be entitled to receive an additional payment of $300,000; however, Executive shall be solely responsible for any additional tax, interest or penalties resulting from the additional $300,000 payment. All calculations required to be made under this Section, including the portion of any payments to be allocated to the restrictive covenants set forth in Section 6 (or any payments to be allocated to a separate restrictive covenant agreement, if any) will be made by the Company’s independent public accountants, subject to the right of Executive’s representative to review the same. All amounts required to be paid pursuant to this Section shall be paid at the time any withholding may be required (or, if earlier, the time Executive shall be required to pay such amounts) under applicable law, and any additional amounts to which Executive may be entitled shall be paid or reimbursed no later than fifteen (15) days following confirmation of such amount by the Company’s independent public accountants; provided, however, that any payments to be made under this Section shall in all events be made no later than the end of Executive’s taxable year next following the taxable


year in which the Executive remits such Excise Tax payment. The parties recognize that the actual implementation of the provisions of this Section are complex and agree to deal with each other in good faith to resolve any questions or disagreements arising hereunder.

2.    For purposes of Section 11 of the Agreement, “Change in Control Agreement” shall not be deemed to include any Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan Agreement entered into between Executive and the Company.

3.    In all other respects, the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect as amended hereby.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties, each intending to be legally bound, have executed this Amendment as of the date, month and year first above written.

Exhibit 10.3

AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO

CHANGE IN CONTROL SEVERANCE AGREEMENT

THIS AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO CHANGE IN CONTROL SEVERANCE AGREEMENT (“Amendment”) is made as of the 31st day of August, 2018, by and between                      (“Executive”) and MID PENN BANCORP, INC. (the “Company”).

WITNESSETH

WHEREAS, the Company and the Executive entered into a Change in Control Severance Agreement dated November 3, 2016 (as the same may be amended from time to time, the “Agreement”); and

WHEREAS, the Company and the Executive desire to amend the Agreement as described herein.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements set forth herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound hereby, agree as follows:

1.    Section 3 of the Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

Anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, if any of the payments or benefits received or to be received by you pursuant to this Agreement (which the parties agree will not include any portion of payments allocated to the non-solicitation and non-competition provisions of Section 4 that are classified as payments of reasonable compensation for purposes of Code Section 280G), when taken together with payments and benefits payable to or on behalf of you under any other plans, contracts or arrangements with the Company or Mid Penn Bank (all such payments and benefits, the “Total Payments”), will be subject to excise tax imposed under Code Section 4999 (the “Excise Tax”), then you shall receive an additional payment in an amount equal to the amount of the Excise Tax actually payable by you, without regard to any additional tax, interest or penalty payable by you on such additional amount. For example, if the Total Payments would result in an Excise Tax payable by you of $300,000, then you will be entitled to receive an additional payment of $300,000; however, you shall be responsible for any additional tax, interest or penalties resulting from the additional $300,000 payment. All calculations required to be made under this Section, including the portion of any payments to be allocated to the restrictive covenants set forth in Section 4 (or any payments to be allocated to a separate restrictive covenant agreement, if any) will be made by the Company’s independent public accountants, subject to the right of your representative to review the same. All amounts required to be paid pursuant to this Section shall be paid at the time any withholding may be required (or, if earlier, the time you shall be required to pay such amounts) under applicable law, and any additional amounts to which you may be entitled shall be paid or reimbursed no later than fifteen (15) days following confirmation of such amount by the Company’s independent public accountants; provided, however, that any payments to be made under this Section shall in all events be made no later than the end of your taxable year next following the taxable year in which you remit such Excise Tax payment. The parties recognize that the actual implementation of the provisions of this Section are complex and agree to deal with each other in good faith to resolve any questions or disagreements arising hereunder.


2.    The Agreement is amended to expressly provide that the benefits provided for the Executive thereunder are in addition to any other benefits to which Executive may become entitled under any Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan Agreement to which Executive is a party.

3.    In all other respects, the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect as amended hereby.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties, each intending to be legally bound, have executed this Amendment as of the date, month and year first above written.
