PROXY STATEMENT

This Proxy Statement and the accompanying materials are being made available to OneMain Holdings, Inc. stockholders beginning on or about April 8, 2019. In this Proxy Statement, “OMH” refers to OneMain Holdings, Inc., the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our” may refer to OneMain Holdings, Inc. or to it and one or more of its subsidiaries, as the context may require, “OneMain” refers to the operations of OneMain Financial Holdings, LLC (the successor to OneMain Financial Holdings, Inc.) acquired from CitiFinancial Credit Company on November 15, 2015, “Springleaf” refers to OMH and its operations other than OneMain, “SFI” refers to Springleaf Finance, Inc., and “SFC” refers to Springleaf Finance Corporation. This Proxy Statement contains information to assist you in voting your shares on the matters to be presented at the Company’s 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) to be held on May 21, 2019.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE ANNUAL MEETING AND VOTING

What is the purpose of this Proxy Statement?

The purpose of this Proxy Statement is to provide information regarding matters to be voted on at the Annual Meeting. Additionally, it contains certain information that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) require the Company to provide to its stockholders. This Proxy Statement is also the document used by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) to solicit proxies to be used at the Annual Meeting. Proxies are solicited to give all stockholders an opportunity to vote on the matters to be presented at the Annual Meeting, even if they cannot attend the meeting.

Who pays the cost of soliciting proxies?

We are making this solicitation and will pay the entire cost of preparing, assembling, printing, mailing and distributing these proxy materials and soliciting votes. If you choose to access the proxy materials over the Internet, you are responsible for Internet access charges you may incur. If you choose to vote by telephone, you are responsible for telephone charges you may incur. The solicitation of proxies or votes may be made by mail, in person, by telephone or by electronic communication by our directors, officers and employees, who will not receive any additional compensation for such solicitation activities. We also will reimburse brokerage houses and other custodians, nominees and fiduciaries for forwarding proxy and solicitation materials to stockholders.

How is the Company distributing proxy materials?

We are providing access to our proxy materials primarily over the Internet rather than mailing paper copies of those materials to each stockholder. On or about April 8, 2019, we mailed a Notice of Internet Availability to all stockholders entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. The Notice tells you how to:

view our proxy materials for the Annual Meeting, including this proxy statement and the OneMain Holdings, Inc. 2018 Annual Report, on the Internet and vote; and
instruct us to send proxy materials to you by mail or email.

You may also request delivery of an individual copy of the Proxy Statement and 2018 Annual Report by contacting us by mail at OneMain Holdings, Inc., 601 NW Second Street, Evansville, Indiana 47708, Attention: Secretary or by calling our Investor Relations department at (475) 619-8821.

What matters will the stockholders vote on at the meeting?

You will be voting on the following:

to elect three Class III directors, Valerie Soranno Keating, Aneek S. Mamik and Richard A. Smith, to serve until the 2022 Annual Meeting, and until such director’s successor has been duly elected and qualified, or until such director’s earlier death, resignation or removal (the “Director Election Proposal”);
to ratify the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2019 (the “Ratification of Auditors Proposal”); and

Who may vote at the meeting?

All stockholders who owned shares of Company common stock at the close of business on the record date of March 28, 2019 may attend and vote at the meeting.

How do I vote?

You can vote either in person at the meeting or by proxy whether you attend the meeting or not. You can vote by telephone or Internet by following the instructions on the proxy card. If you are a registered holder of shares of Company common stock, you can also vote by mail by completing, signing, dating and returning your proxy card. If you hold your shares of Company common stock beneficially in street name, you may submit proxies by following the instructions provided by your broker, bank or other nominee see “What is the difference between a stockholder of record and a beneficial owner of shares held in ‘street name’?” below for more information. If you sign your proxy card but do not specify how you want your shares voted, they will be voted as the Board recommends. The deadline for voting by telephone or electronically is 11:59 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time, on Monday, May 20, 2019. If you are a registered stockholder and attend the meeting, you may deliver your completed proxy card in person.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

What is householding?

If you and others who share your mailing address own Company common stock through bank or brokerage accounts, you may have received a notice that your household will receive only one copy of the Proxy Statement and 2018 Annual Report or Notice Regarding the Internet Availability of Proxy Materials. This practice, known as “householding,” is designed to reduce the volume of duplicate information and reduce printing and postage costs. You may discontinue householding by contacting your bank or broker.

What is the difference between a stockholder of record and a beneficial owner of shares held in “street name”?

If your shares are registered directly in your name with our transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, you are a stockholder of record. If your shares are held in an account at a brokerage firm, bank or similar institution, then you are the beneficial owner of shares held in “street name.” The institution holding your account is considered the stockholder of record for purposes of voting at the Annual Meeting. As the beneficial owner, you have the right to instruct the institution on how to vote the shares held in your account.

What is the effect of abstentions and broker “non-votes”?

The inspector will treat valid proxies marked “abstain” or proxies required to be treated as broker “non-votes” as present for purposes of determining whether there is a quorum at the Annual Meeting. A broker “non-vote” occurs when you fail to provide your broker with voting instructions on a particular proposal and the broker does not have discretionary authority to vote your shares on that particular proposal because the proposal is not a “routine” matter under the applicable rules. Abstentions and broker non-votes with respect to the Director Election Proposal will have no effect on the election of directors. Abstentions and broker non-votes with respect to the Ratification of Auditors Proposal will have the same effect as a vote against the proposal.

Unless your broker receives appropriate instructions from you, your broker may not use discretionary authority to vote your shares on any of the matters to be considered at the Annual Meeting other than the ratification of our independent registered public accounting firm. Therefore, we strongly urge you to vote your shares.

Can I change my voting instructions before the meeting?

You may revoke your proxy by sending in a signed proxy card with a later date, providing subsequent telephone or Internet voting instructions, providing a written notice of revocation to our Corporate Secretary at the address on page 1 prior to the Annual Meeting or attending the Annual Meeting to cast your vote in person. If your shares are held in “street name,” please follow the directions given by the institution that holds your shares to change or revoke your voting instructions.

Is my vote confidential?

We keep all proxies, ballots and voting tabulations confidential as a matter of practice. We permit only our inspector of election to examine these documents. If you write comments on your proxy card or ballot, the proxy card or ballot may be forwarded to our management and the Board to review your comments.

How many votes do I have?

You will have one vote for each share of Company common stock which you owned at the close of business on March 28, 2019, the record date for the meeting.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Who will tabulate and count the votes?

Representatives or agents of Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. will tabulate the votes and act as the Company’s inspector of election.

How many shares of stock are eligible to vote at the Annual Meeting?

At the close of business on March 28, 2019, there were a total of 136,082,463 shares of Company common stock issued and outstanding and eligible to vote at the Annual Meeting.

How many shares must be present to hold the Annual Meeting?

The holders of a majority of the shares of Company common stock outstanding as of the record date and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting must be present, in person or by proxy, in order to hold the Annual Meeting and conduct business. This is called a quorum. In determining whether a quorum is present, shares represented by votes to withhold, abstentions and broker non-votes will be deemed present at the Annual Meeting. Once a share is deemed present for any purpose at the Annual Meeting, it is deemed present for quorum purposes for the remainder of the Annual Meeting.

How many votes are required to elect directors and adopt other proposals?

Proposal 1—Director Election Proposal: Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes of holders of shares present, in person or by proxy, and entitled to vote at a meeting of stockholders at which a quorum is present. Accordingly, the three nominees named in this proxy statement with the highest number of “FOR” votes will be elected. Votes to withhold and broker non-votes, if any, will not have any effect on the election of a director.

Proposal 2—Ratification of Auditors Proposal: Approval of the ratification of the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019 requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the total number of shares present, in person or by proxy, and entitled to vote on the proposal. Abstentions and broker non-votes, if any, will have the same effect as a vote against this proposal.

Other business—All other business that may properly come before the Annual Meeting requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the total number of shares present, in person or by proxy, and entitled to vote on any such other business.

How do I attend the Annual Meeting?

Admission to the Annual Meeting is limited to Company stockholders or their proxy holders. In order to be admitted to the Annual Meeting, each stockholder will be asked to present proof of stock ownership and a valid government-issued photo identification, such as a driver’s license. Proof of stock ownership may consist of the proxy card, or if shares are held in the name of a broker, bank or other nominee (“street name”), an account statement or letter from the nominee indicating that you beneficially owned shares of Company common stock at the close of business on March 28, 2019, the record date for the Annual Meeting.

Where can I find the voting results of the Annual Meeting?

We intend to announce preliminary voting results at the Annual Meeting and report final results on a Current Report on Form 8-K, which we intend to file with the SEC within four business days after the Annual Meeting.

Corporate Governance Guidelines (“Governance Guidelines”)
Audit Committee Charter
Compensation Committee Charter
Nominating and Corporate Governance (“NCG”) Committee Charter
Compliance Committee Charter
Risk Committee Charter
Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (“Code of Conduct”)
Code of Ethics for the Principal Executive and Senior Financial Officers (“Principal Officer Code”)

We intend to disclose any material amendments to or waivers of our Code of Conduct and Principal Officer Code requiring disclosure under applicable SEC or NYSE rules on our website within four business days of the date of any such amendment or waiver in lieu of filing a Current Report on Form 8-K pursuant to Item 5.05 thereof.

Corporate Governance Guidelines

The Governance Guidelines, which are available on our website as outlined above, set forth the Company’s primary principles and policies regarding corporate governance. The Governance Guidelines are reviewed from time to time as deemed appropriate by the Board. The Governance Guidelines are supplemented by the Code of Conduct and the Principal Officer Code, as well as by policies and procedures addressing specific topics and practices.

Codes of Conduct

The Board adopted a Code of Conduct to help ensure that the Company abides by applicable laws and corporate governance standards. This code applies to all directors, employees and officers, including our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) and Principal Accounting Officer. The Board has also adopted a Principal Officer Code that applies to our CEO, CFO and Principal Accounting Officer. The Code of Conduct and the Principal Officer Code are available on our website as outlined above.

Board Leadership Structure

Although not required, the Company has separated the roles of CEO and Chairman of the Board. The CEO is responsible for the day-to-day leadership, management, direction and performance of the Company, while the Chairman of the Board is responsible, together with the CEO and the other members of the Board, for setting the strategic direction of the Company.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Board’s Role in Risk Oversight

While management is responsible for day-to-day risk management of the Company’s operations, the Board is responsible for overseeing enterprise-wide risks. The Board uses its standing committees (discussed below) to monitor and address what may be within the scope of each committee’s expertise or charter. For example: the Audit Committee oversees the financial statements, accounting and auditing functions and related risk; the Compensation Committee oversees the Company’s compensation programs, including goals, objectives, performance and compensation for our CEO and other executive officers, and the compensation disclosure in this Proxy Statement; and the NCG Committee oversees director qualifications, Board structure and corporate governance matters. The Board also has created a Compliance Committee to oversee regulatory compliance matters, which provides regular reports to the Board. In 2018, the Board created a Risk Committee to oversee the development and implementation of systems and processes to identify, manage and mitigate reasonably foreseeable material risks to the Company and to assist the Board and its committees in fulfilling their responsibilities for risk management, including cybersecurity and information security risks.

In addition to getting information from its committees, the Board also receives updates directly from members of management. In this regard, Mr. Shulman, due to his position as both President and CEO and a director of the Company, is particularly important in communicating with other members of management and keeping the Board updated on the important aspects of the Company’s operations.

Independent Directors

We recognize the importance of having an independent Board that is accountable to the Company and its stockholders. Accordingly, the Governance Guidelines (a copy of which may be found in the “Investor Relations — Corporate Governance” section of the Company’s website) provide that a majority of the Board’s directors shall be independent in accordance with the NYSE listing standards. Our Board has affirmatively determined that Ms. Soranno Keating and Messrs. Guthrie, Sinensky, Michelini, Becker, Mamik and Smith are “independent” under Section 303A.02(b) of the NYSE listing standards. In making this determination, the Board considered all relevant facts and circumstances as required by applicable NYSE listing standards.

Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) Responsibility

We believe that sound corporate citizenship and attention to governance and environmental principles are essential to our success and creating long-term value for our stockholders. Below are some of the ways in which the Company demonstrated its commitment to and made progress toward reducing our environmental impact, encouraging employee engagement and practicing responsible governance in 2018.

Environmental

With a broad footprint of nearly 1,600 branches across the U.S., we believe setting an example in environmental sustainability is an important responsibility and opportunity. As we increase our market footprint, we constantly seek out ways to reduce our carbon footprint. The following is a glance at our energy consumption reduction initiatives:

We have Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and Energy Star certified buildings across the U.S., including two corporate headquarters campuses and 50 branch locations.
Our company-wide recycling program includes plastic, cardboard, glass, aluminum and organic materials. Electronics are recycled through a third-party specialist.
We retrofit our corporate offices with LED lighting and install LEDs and programmable thermostats in new branch locations.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Last year, we increased the number of customers who receive paperless bills by 60%. Now, with 740,000 of our customers enrolled, we’re well on our way to reducing the environmental impact outside of our walls.

Social

Whether it’s our own staff, our valued customers or the communities around us, we place immense value on helping people develop and realize their dreams and ambitions. That’s why we’ve implemented the following social enrichment practices:

Designed to be more robust than the average employee survey, our employee satisfaction survey leads to substantial CEO-initiated process evolutions. The Learning Group, a team specifically appointed to identify training and development needs, uses the survey results to initiate pipeline leadership and professional development programs and initiatives. The Company also monitors the progress of the current programs, initiatives and priorities identified through the survey results.
From recruiting to retention, we prioritize diversity in the workplace via numerous channels. To improve the diversity of our employment candidates, we select college recruitment events, in part, based on the diversity makeup of each school’s student population, and include military veterans in our diversity categories. We have also introduced diverse hiring slates, so we now require at least one of three finalists for executive and senior leadership positions be a woman or an ethnic minority. Additionally, we launched an initiative to identify talented, diverse individuals within the organization as part of our semiannual talent review, and these individuals receive career conversations and development planning to accelerate growth within the organization.
We engaged in numerous philanthropic and community-based initiatives during 2018 that demonstrated our dedication to all the places we call home. Nearly 40% of our community grants and sponsorships were awarded to support financial education and literacy initiatives.
We have an Executive Office of Customer Care (“EOCC”) to resolve customer complaints and coordinate resolution, reporting and root cause analysis across OMH, driving change through organizational partnerships. Additionally, the EOCC has a Military Support Team to ensure that our eligible servicemembers receive the benefits to which they are entitled under various federal and state laws and regulations.
To safeguard customer and company information and to protect our reputation, the Company’s Enterprise Third-Party Risk Management team helps to identify, mitigate and report the potential risks and performance of any third party, including agents and subcontractors, with which the Company has an agreement (contractual or otherwise) to provide products or services to the Company and its customers.

Governance

As a publicly traded company with an established national presence, we place special emphasis on Board oversight and on our internal policies and procedures as they relate to risk management, cybersecurity and compliance. Below are just a few of the ways we’re adding efficiency, accountability and transparency to our operations:

During 2018, our directors heard reports from management on a number of ESG-related issues, including cybersecurity, employment enablement and engagement and certain pro-consumer free changes to our business practices.
To ensure consistency in policies across the organization, we have a robust policy governance framework that sets forth minimum standards for the management of policies and procedures

7

TABLE OF CONTENTS

across all lines of business and functional support areas of the Company. The Board reviews certain key policies annually and makes changes when necessary. Additionally, employees receive training on various ESG-related business policies.

Our Compliance group designs and implements policies, standards, procedures, guidelines, surveillance reports and other solutions used by our business to test the effectiveness of our controls and track remediation efforts.

Board, Committee and Annual Meeting Attendance

The Board held twelve meetings during 2018. Each director attended at least 75% of Board and committee meetings held during the period he or she served, except for our former director Wesley R. Edens. Directors are invited and encouraged, but are not required, to attend the Annual Meeting. One of the Company’s directors attended the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

Presiding Non-Management Director and Executive Sessions

The Company’s non-management and independent directors met in executive session without management five times in 2018. Roy Guthrie is the non-management director appointed to preside at each executive session.

Communications with the Board of Directors

Any Company stockholder or other interested party who wishes to communicate with the Board or any of its members may do so by writing to: Board of Directors (or one or more named directors), c/o, Jack R. Erkilla, Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel & Secretary, OneMain Holdings, Inc., 601 NW Second Street, Evansville, Indiana 47708.

Communications with the Audit Committee

Complaints and concerns relating to the Company’s accounting, financial reporting, internal accounting controls or auditing matters (together, “Accounting Matters”) should be communicated to the Audit Committee of the Board. Any such communications may be made on an anonymous basis. Employee concerns or complaints may be reported to the Audit Committee through a third-party vendor, Navex Global, Inc., that has been retained by the Audit Committee for this purpose. Navex Global may be contacted toll-free at (855) 296-9088, or via the Internet at http://www.onemainfinancial.alertline.com/. Outside parties, including stockholders, may bring issues regarding Accounting Matters to the attention of the Audit Committee by writing to: Audit Committee, c/o, Jack R. Erkilla, Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel & Secretary, OneMain Holdings, Inc., 601 NW Second Street, Evansville, Indiana 47708.

All complaints and concerns will be reviewed under the direction of the Audit Committee and overseen by the General Counsel and other appropriate persons as determined by the Audit Committee. The General Counsel also prepares a periodic summary report of all such communications for the Audit Committee.

Criteria and Procedures for Selection of Director Nominees

Although the Board retains ultimate responsibility for nominating members for election to the Board, the NCG Committee of the Board conducts the initial screening and evaluation process. Although there are no minimum qualifications, skills or qualities required to be nominated for election, as provided in the Company’s Governance Guidelines, director nominees, including those directors eligible to stand for re-election, are selected based on, among other things, the following factors:

whether the nominee has demonstrated, by significant accomplishment in his or her field, an ability to make meaningful contributions to the Board’s oversight of the business and affairs of the Company;
the nominee’s reputation for honesty and ethical conduct in his or her personal and professional activities;
experiences, skills and expertise;
diversity;
business judgment;
composition of the Board;
requirements of applicable laws and NYSE listing standards;
time availability and dedication; and
conflicts of interest.

While the NCG Committee has not adopted a formal diversity policy for the selection of director nominees, diversity is one of the factors that the committee considers in identifying director nominees. In considering diversity, in particular, the NCG Committee considers general principles of diversity in the broadest sense. The NCG Committee seeks to recommend the nomination of directors who represent different qualities and attributes and a mix of professional and personal backgrounds and experiences that will enhance the quality of the Board’s deliberations and oversight of our business.

In conducting the screening and evaluation of potential director nominees, the NCG Committee considers candidates recommended by directors and the Company’s management, as well as recommendations from Company stockholders. While the NCG Committee’s Charter and our Governance Guidelines provide that the NCG Committee may, if it deems appropriate, establish procedures to be followed by stockholders in submitting recommendations for director candidates, the NCG Committee has not, at this time, put in place a formal policy with regard to such procedures. This is because our Amended and Restated Bylaws, as amended (the “Bylaws”), include procedures for stockholders to nominate candidates to serve on the Board for election at any Annual Meeting or at any special meeting called for the purpose of electing directors. The Board believes that it is appropriate for the Company not to have a specific policy since stockholders may submit recommendations for director candidates by following the procedures set forth in the Bylaws, as summarized below.

The Bylaws require a stockholder who desires to nominate a candidate for election to the Board at an annual meeting of stockholders to timely submit certain information to OneMain Holdings, Inc., 601 NW Second Street, Evansville, Indiana 47708, Attention: Secretary. This information includes, among other things:

the stockholder’s name and address, and the class, series and number of shares that he or she beneficially owns;

9

TABLE OF CONTENTS

a representation that the stockholder is a holder of record as of the record date and intends to appear in person or by proxy at the Annual Meeting;
the name, address and certain other information regarding the stockholder’s nominee for director;
a description of any arrangement or understanding between the stockholder and the director nominee or any other person (naming such person(s)) in connection with the making of such nomination to the Board; and
a completed questionnaire with respect to the prospective nominee’s background and the background of any other person on whose behalf the nomination is being made, and certain written representations and agreements from such persons concerning their independence and compliance with applicable laws.

To be timely, a stockholder must submit the information required by the Bylaws not less than 90 days nor more than 120 days in advance of the anniversary date of the immediately preceding Annual Meeting of stockholders. The Bylaws include special notice provisions if no annual meeting was held in the previous year, or if the Annual Meeting is called for a date that is not within 30 days before or after the anniversary date of the preceding Annual Meeting. While these provisions of the Bylaws permit a stockholder to nominate a candidate for election to the Board, such nominations will be subject to certain rights of OMH Holdings, L.P. (the “Acquisition Entity”) under the A&R Stockholders Agreement (defined below). See “Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions — A&R Stockholders Agreement” below for more information.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Our Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, provides that the Board shall consist of not less than three and not more than 11 directors, as may be determined from time to time by a majority of the entire Board.

PROPOSAL 1:
ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

The terms of the Class III directors, consisting of Valerie Soranno Keating, Aneek S. Mamik and Richard A. Smith, will expire at the Annual Meeting. Each incumbent Class III director has been nominated by the Board to serve as a continuing director for a new three year term expiring at the 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and until such director’s successor has been elected and qualified, or until such director’s earlier death, resignation or removal.

In connection with the closing of the Apollo-Värde Transaction (as defined below) on June 25, 2018, the size of the Board increased to nine directors (with three directors serving in each Class of the Board), three of the Company’s then current directors resigned from the Board and the Board then appointed six directors (Messrs. Mamik, Smith, Michelini, Becker and Sinensky and Ms. Soranno Keating) designated by the Acquisition Entity to fill the vacancies then existing on the Board. On September 8, 2018, Anahaita N. Kotval resigned and the Board appointed Douglas H. Shulman to fill the resulting vacancy. See “Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions — Stockholders Agreement” and “—Apollo-Värde Transaction” below for more information.

In determining whether to nominate each of the Class III directors for another term, the Board considered the factors discussed above under “Corporate Governance—Criteria and Procedures for Selection of Director Nominees” and concluded that each possesses the talents, backgrounds, perspectives, attributes and skills that will enable him or her to continue to provide valuable insights to Company management and play an important role in helping the Company achieve its goals and objectives. The age, principal occupation and certain other information for each director nominee and the continuing directors serving unexpired terms are set forth below. It is the general policy of the Company, as set forth in the Company’s Corporate Governance Guidelines, that no director having attained the age of 75 years will stand for re-election.

The Board recommends a vote FOR the election of each of the nominees listed below for director.

Compensation Discussion and Analysis

In this section, we discuss our compensation philosophy and describe the compensation for our President and CEO and our other “named executive officers” within the meaning of Item 402 of Regulation S-K (collectively, the “NEOs”). We explain how our Board’s Compensation Committee (as used in this section, the “Committee”) determines compensation for our NEOs and its rationale for specific 2018 compensation decisions.

The following individuals are our 2018 NEOs:

* Mr. Parker resigned as Executive Vice President and CFO effective on March 26, 2019.

Executive Summary

Our executive compensation program is designed to reward financial results and effective strategic leadership – key elements in building sustainable value for stockholders. We believe our executive compensation program aligns the interests of our stockholders and our executives by correlating the amount of actual pay to our short-term and long-term performance.

We carefully benchmark our executive compensation decisions against a relevant group of peer companies – all of which are potential competitors for the national caliber of executive talent required to manage a large, decentralized, multi-state consumer finance lender.

Compensation Arrangements for our new President and Chief Executive Officer

On September 8, 2018 (the “start date”), Douglas H. Shulman became our President and CEO succeeding Jay N. Levine, who resigned as President and CEO but remained as our non-executive Chairman of the Board. The Company and Mr. Shulman entered into an employment agreement effective on July 10, 2018. Mr. Shulman’s compensation under his employment agreement includes an annual base salary, a one-time grant of cash settled options, a replacement equity award and eligibility for an annual target bonus payable in cash, restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and performance-based

21

TABLE OF CONTENTS

RSUs, which are subject to performance goals established by the Committee. See “Our 2018 Executive Compensation Program in Detail – Employment Agreement with Mr. Shulman” below for further details.

2018 Achievements, Pay for Performance Alignment and Compensation Decisions

In 2018, we realized our key operating objectives and continued to see the benefits from the integration efforts across all aspects of our business. Credit losses were in line with our expectations, our portfolio yield remained stable, we grew our net finance receivables while increasing the mix of secured loans in our portfolio and we strengthened our balance sheet. Our 2018 net income for the full year of $447 million under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) represents more than a 144% increase over 2017 net income.

2018 was also a transition year, primarily as a result of the completion of the Apollo-Värde Transaction, and the total compensation for Messrs. Levine, Parker, Hurzeler and Anderson, as reported in the Summary Compensation Table for 2018 below, was significantly affected by this event. For example, Messrs. Levine, Parker, Hurzeler and Anderson received significant payouts of the SFH Incentive Units (defined below) in connection with the closing of the Apollo-Värde Transaction. In addition, the Committee considered the substantial work undertaken by the executive team to complete the Apollo-Värde transaction, the related disruption and uncertainty and the need to retain executive talent when setting annual incentive compensation goals and making special awards for executive officers in 2018. Although the base salaries for each of our NEOs were left unchanged for 2018, their total compensation for 2018 increased consistent with our pay for performance philosophy based upon the attainment of specific, pre-established financial metrics and strategic objectives relevant to their responsibilities as discussed below under the caption “Our 2018 Executive Compensation Program in Detail – Annual Incentive Plan Compensation.”

We made equity grants in 2018 to Messrs. Parker, Hurzeler, Borchers and Anderson to serve as a catalyst for future performance, address the competitiveness of their total compensation and provide for a retention incentive. Consistent with our focus on pay for performance and in order to enhance retention, the Committee historically has required that amounts payable in settlement of awards under the OneMain Holdings, Inc. Amended and Restated Annual Leadership Incentive Plan (the “Annual Plan”) be paid in a mix of cash and RSUs that vest over several years as follows: the first $500,000 in cash; the next $500,000 in RSUs; and awards in excess of $1 million are paid equally in cash and RSUs. The RSUs granted under the Annual Plan vest ratably in three annual installments subject to the recipient’s continued employment through the applicable vesting date.

In taking the actions discussed above, the Committee considered the equity awards granted under the OneMain Holdings, Inc. Amended and Restated 2013 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Omnibus Incentive Plan”), including the value realized upon vesting during 2018 of prior year equity awards, the amount and form of payouts under the Annual Plan for the other NEOs and distributions in respect of SFH Incentive Units that were made in prior years.

In addition, we also made equity and other incentive compensation grants to Mr. Shulman in connection with his appointment as our President and CEO commencing on September 8, 2018. These arrangements are described under the caption “Our 2018 Executive Compensation Program in Detail – Employment Agreement with Mr. Shulman.”

Certain of our executive officers, including some of our NEOs, held incentive units (the “SFH Incentive Units”) in Springleaf Financial Holdings, LLC (“SFH”), our majority stockholder at the time of our initial public offering. These SFH Incentive Units were designed to further align the interests of our management with those of our stockholders because they only provided cash payouts to the extent that distributions by SFH to its owners exceeded certain thresholds, including distributions made in connection with sales of Company common stock by SFH. As a result of the closing of the Apollo-Värde Transaction on June 25, 2018, some of our NEOs received substantial cash distributions in final

settlement of their SFH Incentive Units set forth below under “Our 2018 Executive Compensation Program in Detail - Payouts of SFH Incentive Units.” These payments are reflected in the compensation tables that follow this discussion.

We believe the compensation related actions that we undertook in 2018 were consistent with our pay for performance philosophy, while appropriately balancing risk and reward without exposing the Company to imprudent or undue risk taking.

Our Executive Compensation Governance Practices and Policies

Review of Pay Versus Performance. The Committee regularly reviews the relationship between executive pay and Company performance.
No Repricing. The Omnibus Incentive Plan does not permit the repricing of stock options or other stock appreciation rights without stockholder approval.
Compensation Benchmarking. We use compensation data compiled from a group of publicly traded peer companies in the diversified financial services industries (including banking, consumer finance and thrifts and mortgage finance), as well as the specialty retail and IT services industries.
No Hedging of Shares. We do not permit hedging or short sales of our stock, or similar transactions where potential gains are linked to a decline in our share price, by our directors, officers, employees or their spouses or dependents.
Restrictive Covenants. Our executive officers, including our NEOs, are subject to restrictive covenants upon separation from the Company, including non-solicitation and non-disclosure obligations. Messrs. Shulman, Parker and Hurzeler are also subject to non-competition covenants upon separation from the Company pursuant to the terms of their respective employment agreements. In addition, the OneMain Holdings, Inc. Executive Severance Plan (the “Executive Severance Plan”) includes a 12-month non-competition obligation for Executive Vice Presidents.
Independent Compensation Consultant. The Committee has engaged Pearl Meyer & Partners, LLC (“Pearl Meyer”) as its 2018 independent compensation consultant. Pearl Meyer was retained directly by the Committee and performs no other services for the Company.
Compensation Clawbacks. In 2016, we adopted a policy to recover incentive-based awards from our executive officers for the three year period prior to any accounting restatement that would have resulted in a lower payment because of the restated results.
Review of Compensation Peer Groups. Our peer group is reviewed periodically by the Committee and adjusted, when necessary, to ensure that its composition remains a relevant and appropriate comparison for our executive compensation program. In 2018, we did not make any changes to our peer group.
Stock Ownership Policies. In 2017, we adopted a policy requiring our CEO to hold shares of Company common stock with a value equal to five times his annual base salary and each of our other executive officers to hold shares of Company common stock with a value equal to three times their respective annual base salaries. In 2016, we adopted a policy requiring our independent directors to hold shares of Company common stock equal to at least three times the cash retainer fees paid to our independent directors for annual board service.
No Excise Tax Gross-Ups. We do not provide gross-up payments to offset any “golden parachute” excise taxes potentially incurred by our executives in connection with a change in control.

What Guides Our Executive Compensation Program?

Philosophy and Objectives of Our Executive Compensation Program

The philosophy underlying our executive compensation program is to provide an attractive, flexible and market-based total compensation program tied to performance and aligned with the interests of our stockholders. Our objective is to recruit and retain the caliber of executive officers and other key employees necessary to deliver sustained high performance to our stockholders and customers. Equally important, we view compensation practices as a means for communicating our goals and standards of conduct and performance and for motivating and rewarding employees in relation to their achievements.

We observe the following guiding principles in setting executive compensation:

Retain and hire top-caliber executives: Executive officers should have base salaries and employee benefits that are market competitive and that permit us to hire and retain high-caliber individuals at all levels;
Pay for performance: A significant portion of the total compensation of our executive officers should be linked to the achievement of Company performance objectives;
Align compensation with stockholder interests: The interests of our executive officers should be aligned with those of our stockholders through the risks and rewards of the ownership of Company common stock;
Provide limited perquisites: Perquisites for our executive officers should be minimized and limited to items that serve a reasonable business purpose; and
Reinforce succession planning process: The overall compensation program for our executive officers should reinforce our succession planning process by providing competitive total compensation necessary to attract, motivate and retain key executive talent.


How We Make Compensation Decisions

Role of the Compensation Committee

The Committee is responsible to our Board for overseeing the development and administration of our compensation and benefits policies and programs. The Committee, which consists of three independent directors, is responsible for the review and approval of all aspects of our executive compensation program.

24

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The Committee is responsible for evaluating annually the performance of our CEO and determining and approving our CEO’s compensation based on such evaluation. Additionally, the Committee is responsible for the following, among its other duties:

Reviewing and approving corporate incentive goals and objectives relevant to compensation;
Evaluating individual performance results in light of these goals and objectives;
Evaluating the competitiveness of each executive officer’s total compensation package; and
Approving any changes to the total compensation package, including, but not limited to, base salary and annual and long-term incentive award opportunities.

The role of the Committee is described in detail in the Compensation Committee Charter, which is available under the Corporate Governance tab in the Investor Relations section of our website at http://investor.onemainfinancial.com/. The Committee is supported in its work by our Executive Vice President, Human Resources, her staff and the Committee’s independent compensation consultant, as described below.

Role of the Chief Executive Officer

The CEO, working with management, makes recommendations to the Committee regarding executive compensation structure, metrics and goals.

Role of the Chief Risk Officer

In reviewing proposed variable compensation programs for our executive officers and other employees, the Committee attempts to balance the business risks inherent in the program design with its compensation objectives to evaluate whether such program design encourages responsible investment of our resources and does not unintentionally encourage or reward imprudent risk-taking. After a review of our compensation plans by our Chief Risk Officer, who briefed the Committee at its meeting in October 2018, the Committee concluded that our compensation plans were well-defined and well documented and that our incentive compensation plans are not unbalanced such that they encourage excessive or unnecessary risk-taking that would endanger the reputation or financial well-being of the Company.

Role of the Compensation Consultant

The Committee retained Pearl Meyer as its independent executive compensation consultant for 2018. Pearl Meyer reports directly to the Committee and the Committee may replace its compensation consultant or hire additional consultants at any time. A representative of Pearl Meyer attends meetings of the Committee, when requested, and communicates with the Committee Chair between meetings. The Committee has assessed the independence of Pearl Meyer pursuant to the NYSE rules and the Committee concluded that the work performed by Pearl Meyer for the Committee did not raise any conflict of interest.

Pearl Meyer provides various executive compensation services to the Committee pursuant to a consulting agreement with the Committee. Generally, these services include advising the Committee on the principal aspects of our executive compensation program and evolving industry practices and providing market information and analysis regarding the competitiveness of our program design and our award values in relationship to performance. Pearl Meyer provided no additional services to us in 2018.

Compensation Peer Group

The Committee uses compensation data compiled from a group of publicly traded peer companies in the diversified financial services industries (including banking, consumer finance, thrifts and mortgage finance), as well as the specialty retail and IT services industries (the “Peer Group”). The Committee

25

TABLE OF CONTENTS

periodically reviews and updates the Peer Group, as necessary, upon the recommendation of its independent compensation consultant. During 2018, the Committee chose not to revise the Peer Group.

We believe the current Peer Group represents the industries with which we currently compete for executive talent, and also includes our principal business competitors.

Use of Competitive Data

The Committee relies on various sources of compensation information to ascertain the competitive market for our executive officers, including the NEOs. To assess the competitiveness of our executive compensation program, we analyze Peer Group compensation data obtained from peer company proxy materials as well as compensation and benefits survey data provided by national compensation consulting firms. As part of this process, we measure our program’s competitiveness by comparing relevant market data against actual pay levels within each compensation component and in the aggregate for each executive officer position. We also review the mix of our compensation components with respect to fixed versus variable, short-term versus long-term, and cash versus equity-based pay. This information is then presented to the Committee for its review and use.

The Committee generally compares the compensation of each NEO in relation to the 50th and 75th percentiles of the Peer Group for similar positions. In addition, the Committee considers various factors such as our performance within the Peer Group, the unique characteristics of the individual’s position and any succession and retention considerations, which may result in the NEO being compensated above or below the 50th to 75th percentile range.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Executive Officer Stock Ownership Policy

On July 24, 2017, the Committee approved the Executive Officer Stock Ownership Policy to further align the interests of our executive officers with those of our stockholders by encouraging significant stock ownership in the Company. The policy is administered by the Committee. Pursuant to the policy, our CEO is required to hold shares of Company common stock with a value equal to five times his base salary, and each of our other executive officers is required to hold shares of Company common stock with a value equal to three times base salary. For purposes of determining compliance with such policy at any time, the value of our executive officers’ holdings is determined by multiplying the number of shares held by such executive officer by the average closing price of a share of Company common stock for the previous calendar year. Our executive officers’ holdings include shares held directly by the executive officer, including unvested restricted shares and RSUs, and shares owned indirectly or beneficially by the executive officer. With the exception of our President and CEO and our Executive Vice President and Acting CFO, our current executive officers are required to meet the requirements of such policy by July 2022. Mr. Shulman, our President and CEO, and any other individual who becomes an executive officer after July 2017, will have five years from the date such individual commences service as executive officer to satisfy the requirements of the policy.

Our 2018 Executive Compensation Program in Detail

Base Salary

Base salary is the principal fixed component of our executives’ total direct compensation that establishes a minimum level of cash compensation for our executive officers, including the NEOs, and is determined by considering the competitive marketplace. The Committee reviews compensation data provided by its independent compensation consultant, Pearl Meyer, specific to the Peer Group in order to determine the overall competitiveness of the NEOs’ total compensation. For 2018, Mr. Shulman’s initial base salary was determined after considering advice from our independent compensation consultant, Pearl Meyer, and by considering Mr. Shulman’s base compensation level at his former employer. For the other NEOs, there were no changes in 2018 base salary levels as compared to the levels established for 2017.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Guaranteed & Discretionary Bonuses

Pursuant to the terms of Mr. Hurzeler’s employment agreement, he was entitled to receive a minimum guaranteed bonus of $400,000. Instead he received his calculated payout under the Annual Plan of $2,033,600 in February 2019, which exceeded his minimum guaranteed bonus. In February 2018, the Committee approved a one-time cash bonus of $500,000 to Mr. Parker under the Omnibus Incentive Plan for his past contributions to the Company’s achievements, including the integration of the legacy Springleaf and OneMain operations; in April 2018, the Committee accelerated the vesting of 139,227 RSUs previously granted to Mr. Parker so that they would automatically vest in full upon the closing of the Apollo-Värde Transaction, which occurred on June 25, 2018. Vesting of these RSUs was previously scheduled for February 20, 2019, February 20, 2020 and June 18, 2021. The Company determined that the modification of the vesting terms did not result in any additional compensation expense. In June 2018, the Committee also approved a grant of 44,536 RSUs to Mr. Parker under the Omnibus Incentive Plan with a grant date fair value of $1,500,000 for his efforts in completing the Apollo-Värde Transaction and as a retention tool. These RSUs were scheduled to vest over three years with 50% vesting on June 18, 2018. The remainder of RSUs subject to this grant were forfeited upon Mr. Parker’s resignation as Executive Vice President and CFO effective on March 26, 2019.

2018 Compensation of our President and Chief Executive Officer

The compensation of Mr. Shulman, our President and CEO since September 8, 2018, is described under “Our 2018 Executive Compensation Program in Detail – Employment Agreement with Mr. Shulman.”

Annual Incentive Plan Compensation

The Annual Plan is a sub-plan of the Omnibus Incentive Plan in which our NEOs, other than Messrs. Levine and Shulman, participated during 2018. The executive officers who participate in the Annual Plan are eligible to receive annual incentive compensation contingent upon the attainment of specific, pre-established financial metrics and strategic objectives relevant to the responsibilities of each such executive officer, each of which is intended to drive sustainable growth and create long-term stockholder value. We have historically settled awards under our Annual Plan partially in cash and partially in the form of equity-based instruments, including RSUs and restricted stock awards (“RSAs”). Our use of equity-based instruments in partial settlement of awards under our Annual Plan ties annual performance to the Company’s long-term success by generally basing the magnitude of such payouts of Annual Plan awards on the applicable NEO’s performance during the prior year and imposing continued service-based vesting conditions, generally over a three year period, on such awards.

For 2018, the financial metrics and strategic objectives for Annual Plan awards were Adjusted Pre-Tax Income for the Consumer & Insurance (“C & I”) segment, C & I Ending Net Receivables, C & I Net Credit Loss (%) and C & I Operating Expense Adjusted for Deferred Acquisition Costs, as well as the assessment of the achievement of strategic objectives.

C & I Adjusted Pre-Tax Income, C & I Ending Net Receivables, C & I Net Credit Loss (%) and C & I Operating Expense Adjusted for Deferred Acquisition Costs are non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of SEC rules. Please refer to pages 54-56 of our 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 15, 2019 for a description of C & I Adjusted Pre-Tax Earnings and C & I Ending Net Receivables. C & I Net Credit Loss (%) represents the aggregate dollar amount of loans charged off in our C & I segment during 2018 less the aggregate dollar amount of monies recovered in our C & I segment during 2018 from loans previously charged off, divided by Average Net Receivables for 2018. C & I Operating Expense Adjusted for Deferred Acquisition Costs represents total operating expenses for our C & I segment during 2018 adjusted for deferred acquisition costs incurred during 2018 in connection with originating loans.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Under the Annual Plan, annual compensation targets are set for each participant and a performance range with accompanying variability of compensation is determined for each metric. The Annual Plan provides that the first $500,000 payable to recipients is payable in cash. Amounts in excess of $500,000 up to and including $1,000,000 are paid in RSUs, and any amounts above $1,000,000 are evenly split between cash and RSUs. The RSUs vest in three equal annual installments subject to the recipient’s continued service through each applicable vesting date.

For 2018, Messrs. Parker and Hurzeler each were eligible to earn a target bonus amount of $1,600,000. Mr. Borchers was eligible to earn a target bonus amount of $650,000. Mr. Anderson’s target bonus was $450,000 after effecting a 50% pro-ration for a six-month performance period from July 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018. The targets were set, in part, to keep the executives focused on the Company’s performance through the transition period after the Apollo-Värde Transaction and as a retention incentive. Possible payouts under the Annual Plan ranged between 0% and 150% of the target level. Payouts were based on Messrs. Parker, Hurzeler, Borchers and Anderson’s performance relative to the attainment of the applicable metrics and objectives and the Company’s performance for the year.

In February 2019, the Committee approved payments to Messrs. Parker, Hurzeler, Borchers and Anderson in respect of their Annual Plan awards based upon the achievement of financial metrics and the assessment of the achievement of strategic objectives. In settlement of their respective Annual Plan awards, Messrs. Parker and Hurzeler each received cash payments of $1,016,800 and grants of 33,893 RSUs in February 2019 with a grant date fair value of $1,016,800, for a total payout of $2,033,600 for each executive. In settlement of their Annual Plan awards, Messrs. Borchers and Anderson each received a cash payment of $500,000 and grants of RSUs in February 2019 with a value of $317,700 (Mr. Borchers) and $71,950 (Mr. Anderson), for a total payout of $817,700 (Mr. Borchers) and $571,950 (Mr. Anderson).

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The financial metrics and strategic objectives achievement results approved by the Committee for the Annual Plan awards were as follows as reflected in the table below:

C & I Adjusted Pre-Tax Income - metric was achieved above the target (150% achievement level),
C & I Ending Net Receivables - metric was achieved above the target (123.3% achievement level),
C & I Net Credit Loss (%) - metric was achieved above the target (150% achievement level), and
C & I Operating Expense Adjusted for Deferred Acquisition Costs - metric was achieved below the target (92% achievement level).


(1)The weightings for Mr. Borchers differ from those of Messrs. Parker, Hurzeler and Anderson to emphasize his responsibilities for Branch-level performance.

Equity Incentive Plan Compensation

In July 2018, the Committee approved a performance-based equity compensation program with a measurement period of 2018 (the “Equity Program”) for Messrs. Parker and Hurzeler, who each received performance-based equity compensation awards with vesting contingent upon the attainment of specific, pre-established performance measures discussed below. Due in part to our concentrated stock ownership, we utilized C & I Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share and Tangible Leverage Ratio (each as defined below) as the performance measures for the Equity Program. Each of these measures was weighted equally for 2018 awards under the Equity Program. For 2018, Messrs. Parker and Hurzeler received performance-based RSUs that were settled in the form of service-based RSUs vesting ratably over three years beginning in February 2019. For 2018 performance, Messrs. Parker and Hurzeler were eligible to receive service-based RSUs upon settlement of their performance-based RSUs with grant

TABLE OF CONTENTS

date fair values at target of $1,250,000 and $1,000,000, respectively, with possible payouts between 0% and 150% of the target level. As with annual incentive plan compensation, the targets were designed, in part, to keep Messrs. Parker and Hurzeler focused on the Company’s performance through the transition period of the Apollo-Värde Transaction and as a retention incentive.

C & I Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share was calculated by dividing C & I Adjusted After-Tax Earnings for 2018 by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding during 2018. Our Tangible Leverage Ratio was calculated by subtracting the carrying value of junior subordinated debt at December 31, 2018 from the carrying value of our total long-term debt at December 31, 2018 to arrive at Adjusted Debt, then dividing Adjusted Debt by Adjusted Tangible Common Equity, which is calculated by subtracting goodwill and other intangible assets at December 31, 2018 from total stockholders’ equity at December 31, 2018, and then adding the carrying value of junior subordinated debt at December 31, 2018 to the result.

The Committee certified achievement of each of the C & I Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share metric and the Tangible Leverage Ratio metric above the target level of performance. Based on the performance achievement levels, the Committee approved the settlement of the performance-based RSUs granted to Messrs. Parker and Hurzeler with service-based RSUs at 130% of target. The RSUs vest ratably in three annual installments beginning in February 2019, subject to the executive’s continued employment through the applicable vesting date.

The following table shows the target achievement results of the NEOs who were participants in our 2018 Equity Program:


In early 2019, the Committee awarded Mr. Anderson 9,750 RSUs, with a grant date fair value of $292,500, in recognition of performance in 2018 after considering the Company’s achievement against the Equity Program performance goals. Mr. Anderson’s award reflects a 50% pro-ration reflecting a six-month performance period from July 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018. The RSUs will vest in three equal annual installments, subject to Mr. Anderson’s continued employment through the applicable vesting date. Although these RSUs were granted based on an assessment of 2018 performance, in accordance with SEC executive compensation disclosure rules, the value of this award is excluded from the Summary Compensation Table for 2018 since the award opportunity was granted

33

TABLE OF CONTENTS

to Mr. Anderson following the conclusion of 2018. Accordingly, these RSUs will be reflected as compensation in the Summary Compensation Table for 2019.

We believe our use of equity-based instruments that have continued service-based vesting conditions and that are issued in partial settlement of Annual Plan awards and Equity Program awards, as well as our Executive Officer Stock Ownership Policy and our prior year grants of performance-based RSUs, RSUs and fully vested RSUs, closely align the interests of our management with those of the Company and our stockholders by ensuring that our management has a meaningful equity ownership stake in the Company.

Payout of SFH Incentive Units

Certain of our NEOs held SFH Incentive Units. These SFH Incentive Units were profit interests that provided the holders thereof with benefits (in the form of distributions) only if SFH made distributions to one or more of its common members that exceeded specified threshold amounts.

Holders of SFH Incentive Units were generally entitled to receive distributions in respect of their SFH Incentive Units only if they were employed by us or one of our affiliates on, and have not given or received notice of termination of such employment as of, the date the distribution is paid. The closing of the Apollo-Värde Transaction on June 25, 2018 triggered final distributions to holders of SFH Incentive Units and resulted in cash distributions to our NEOs in the following amounts in respect of their SFH Incentive Units:

The SFH Incentive Units were designed to further align the interests of the holders thereof with those of our stockholders by delivering value only to the extent that distributions by SFH to its owners exceeded certain thresholds, including distributions made in connection with sales of Company common stock by SFH to the Acquisition Entity at the closing of the Apollo-Värde Transaction.

Although these distributions were paid by SFH, we are required to recognize such distributions as stock-based compensation expense in our consolidated financial statements under GAAP, and such distributions are reflected in the All Other Compensation column of the Summary Compensation Table for 2018. Distributions on these SFH Incentive Units are not tax deductible by us. Nevertheless, because the holders of SFH Incentive Units only received distributions in respect of such SFH Incentive Units if certain thresholds were exceeded at the time that SFH sold its holdings of Company common stock, we believe these SFH Incentive Units helped support our pay for performance culture.

Benefits

All of our NEOs are eligible to participate in our general tax-qualified, defined contribution retirement savings 401(k) plan (the “401(k) Plan”). We match a percentage of each participant’s contributions to the 401(k) Plan up to the statutory limits.

Our defined benefit plans include a tax-qualified pension plan (the “Retirement Plan”) and a non-qualified Excess Retirement Income Plan (the “Excess Plan”) (collectively the “Pension Plans”). Each of the Pension Plans provides for a yearly benefit based on years of service and average final salary.

34

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The Pension Plans and their benefits are described in greater detail below under “—Pension Benefits for 2018”. As of December 31, 2012, which was prior to eligibility for all our NEOs other than Messrs. Levine, Borchers and Anderson, the Pension Plans were frozen with respect to both salary and service levels to prevent future increases in the benefit liabilities established under the applicable Pension Plan.

Each of our executive officers is eligible to participate in our various group health and welfare benefit plans and fringe benefit programs that are generally available to all of our team members on a non-discriminatory basis.

Employment Agreements

We have entered into employment agreements with certain of our executive officers, including Messrs. Shulman and Hurzeler and Mr. Parker, our former Executive Vice President and CFO. While we do not maintain a policy of entering into employment agreements with each of our executive officers, we believe the use of employment agreements are appropriate and useful under certain circumstances to attract and retain our executive officers.

Employment Agreement with Mr. Shulman

On July 10, 2018, we entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Shulman pursuant to which he began serving as our President and CEO on September 8, 2018 (the “start date”). The terms of the agreement reflect advice from Pearl Meyer, consideration of the terms of Mr. Shulman’s compensation arrangements with his prior employer and the results of negotiations between the parties to the agreement.

The employment agreement provides Mr. Shulman with an annual base salary of $800,000 and eligibility for an annual target bonus of $5,500,000, payable in cash, RSUs and performance-based RSUs subject to achievement of performance goals established by the Committee. The cash and RSU portions of the annual target bonus total $3,666,667 payable equally in cash and RSUs. In 2018, the target bonus (i) for Mr. Shulman’s OMH tenure was prorated for the period from the start date through December 31, 2018 and was increased by multiplying the pro-rated bonus amount by the performance factor under the Annual Plan (1.271); and (ii) includes an additional amount equal to two-thirds of Mr. Shulman’s target bonus at his prior employer, prorated for the period from January 1, 2018 to the start date. The performance-based RSUs portion of the annual bonus of $1,833,333 is granted annually beginning in 2019 and no later than March 31 of each year. Mr. Shulman did not receive a performance-based RSU grant for 2018. Accordingly, the 2019 grant of performance-based RSUs is equal to $1,833,333 plus (i) a pro rata portion of such amount related to the period in 2018 from the start date through December 31, 2018 multiplied by the performance factor under the Equity Program (1.30), and (ii) a pro rata portion of one-third of Mr. Shulman’s target bonus at his prior employer. The formula resulted in a performance-based RSU grant in February 2019 with a target value of $3,106,000.

In consideration of the commencement of Mr. Shulman’s employment with the Company, and in part to compensate Mr. Shulman for equity awards forfeited at his prior employer, Mr. Shulman received a one-time equity grant of 84,697 RSUs with an aggregate grant date fair value of $3,000,000, which vest as follows: 50% vested on December 31, 2018; 25% are scheduled to vest on December 31, 2019; and 25% are scheduled to vest on December 31, 2020. If Mr. Shulman’s employment is terminated by the Company for cause or Mr. Shulman resigns without good reason (as defined in the employment agreement) on or after December 31, 2018, but on or before December 31, 2019, Mr. Shulman will be required to pay the Company the fair market value (as of the termination date) of the number of shares he received (after tax withholding) in connection with the portion of the grant that vested on December 31, 2018.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

As provided in the employment agreement, the Committee also approved a one-time grant to Mr. Shulman of cash-settled options with respect to 650,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (in three tranches of 300,000, 225,000 and 125,000 shares) that are subject to certain vesting conditions relating to the trading price of the Company’s common stock and the portion of the Company’s common stock owned by stockholders other than the Acquisition Entity, as well as certain other terms and conditions. In accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification Topic 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation (“FASB ASC Topic 718”), the grant date fair value of this cash-settled option award is zero because the satisfaction of the required event-based performance condition was not considered probable as of the grant date. Accordingly, there is no grant date fair value below or in excess of the assumed value of zero that could be calculated and disclosed.

Pursuant to the employment agreement, the Company agreed to reimburse Mr. Shulman for his reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with the negotiation of the employment agreement and all related agreements.

The employment agreement provides that Mr. Shulman will receive certain payments and benefits in the event of a termination of his employment under specific circumstances. If Mr. Shulman’s employment is terminated by the Company other than for “cause” (as defined in the agreement, but not including a termination of employment due to death or disability) or he resigns for “good reason” (as defined in the agreement and summarized below), and if Mr. Shulman executes a general release of claims in a form acceptable to us and continues to comply with all applicable restrictive covenants, then he would be entitled to: (i) a severance payment equal to $2,633,333, payable in equal installments over a 24-month period in accordance with the Company’s payroll (or, if such termination occurs within the 24-month period following a change in control (as defined in the agreement), a single lump sum); (ii) any earned but unpaid annual bonus for the calendar year immediately preceding the termination; (iii) an amount equal to two-thirds of the average annual bonus earned in respect of the three years completed prior to the year of termination (or, if Mr. Shulman has been employed for less than three years as of such termination, the number of years completed prior to the year of termination; provided, however, that if the year of termination is 2018 or 2019, the amount shall be equal to two-thirds of the target amount of his annual bonus), pro-rated based on the number of days in which Mr. Shulman was employed during such year paid at the same time such bonuses are normally paid in accordance with the normal practices of the Company with regard to paying bonuses to similarly situated executives subject to certain adjustments; and (iv) a lump sum payment equal to 12-months of COBRA premiums.

For purposes of Mr. Shulman’s employment agreement, “good reason” means, in summary: (i) a material reduction in his duties, authorities, responsibilities or reporting relationships; (ii) the reduction of his base salary or annual bonus opportunity (in each case, other than an across-the-board reduction affecting all senior management of the Company which reduction results in the decrease of his base salary or annual bonus opportunity, as applicable, of less than 10%); (iii) relocation of his principal location of employment by more than 50 miles (unless such new location is closer to his primary residence in New York City); (iv) the failure to nominate him as a member of the board of directors of the Company; or (v) the failure to pay him compensation when due under the terms of his employment agreement.

Pursuant to the employment agreement, Mr. Shulman is bound by certain restrictive covenants including confidentiality, non-disparagement, work product and, during the term of his employment and for a period of two years thereafter, non-solicitation of employees, consultants and customers and non-competition. The Company is bound by a non-disparagement covenant.

Employment Agreement with Mr. Parker

On October 12, 2015, we entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Parker pursuant to which he served as our Executive Vice President and CFO until his resignation effective on March 26, 2019. The initial term of the agreement was scheduled to expire on December 31, 2019, and provided

36

TABLE OF CONTENTS

for automatic renewal for an additional one-year term thereafter unless either party provided notice of non-renewal to the other at least 90 days before expiration of the then-current term.

Mr. Parker’s employment agreement provided for an annual base salary of $400,000, subject to adjustment as provided in the agreement. Mr. Parker was also to receive a bonus under the Company’s annual incentive program, subject in each case to reasonable performance objectives agreed upon between the CEO and Mr. Parker each year. The agreement also provided that Mr. Parker would be eligible to participate in all retirement and welfare benefit plans and paid-time off policies as are made available by us to our senior executives.

Mr. Parker’s employment agreement also provided that if his employment was terminated by us without “cause” (as defined in the agreement) or by Mr. Parker for “good reason” (as defined in the agreement and summarized below), and if Mr. Parker executed a general release of claims in a form acceptable to us and continued to comply with all applicable restrictive covenants, he would receive (i) continued base salary payments for 12 months, (ii) any earned but unpaid annual bonus for the prior calendar year, and (iii) the annual bonus for the year in which such termination occurred, pro-rated based on the average of the annual bonuses paid to him for the three years prior to such termination (or such lesser number of years for which he received a non-zero annual bonus, if applicable). Mr. Parker also was eligible to participate in the Executive Severance Plan, provided that any severance amounts payable to Mr. Parker under the Executive Severance Plan would be reduced by the severance amounts payable to Mr. Parker under the terms of his employment agreement. As noted above, Mr. Parker resigned as Executive Vice President and CFO effective on March 26, 2019. Mr. Parker did not receive severance benefits in connection with such resignation.

Mr. Parker’s employment agreement provided that he will not compete with us for one year following notice of his termination of employment for any reason. In addition, the agreement provides that Mr. Parker will not solicit our employees, consultants, independent contractors, service providers or current or prospective clients or customers for two-years following the termination of his employment for any reason. The agreement also contains standard perpetual provisions relating to confidentiality, intellectual property and non-disparagement.

For purposes of Mr. Parker’s employment agreement, “good reason” means, in summary, (i) a material reduction in his level of responsibility, title or authority, (ii) any material breach by the Company of its obligations under the employment agreement, or (iii) relocation of his principal location of employment by more than 60 miles.

Employment Agreement with Mr. Hurzeler

On April 13, 2015, we entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Hurzeler effective as of January 1, 2016. The agreement provides that Mr. Hurzeler will continue to serve as our Executive Vice President, Auto Lending under the agreement for an initial term beginning on January 1, 2016 and ending on December 31, 2018. Mr. Hurzeler became our Chief Operating Officer on June 2, 2016. The agreement automatically renews for additional one-year terms thereafter unless either party provides notice of non-renewal to the other at least 90 days before expiration of the then-current term. The agreement auto-renewed on January 1, 2019.

The employment agreement provides that Mr. Hurzeler will continue to receive an annual base salary of $350,000, subject to adjustment as provided in the agreement, and will be eligible to receive a minimum annual bonus of $400,000 for each full calendar year during the term of the agreement, subject to his continued employment on the payment date. The agreement also provides that Mr. Hurzeler will continue to be eligible to participate in all retirement and welfare benefit plans and paid-time off policies as are made available to the Company’s other similarly situated executives during the term of the agreement.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The employment agreement also provides that if his employment is terminated by us without “cause” (as defined in the agreement) and if Mr. Hurzeler executes a general release of claims in a form acceptable to us and continues to comply with all applicable restrictive covenants, he will receive (i) continued base salary payments for twelve months and (ii) a pro-rated annual bonus for the year of termination, based on the average of the annual bonuses paid to him for the three years prior to termination (or such lesser number of years for which he received a non-zero annual bonus, if applicable).

The employment agreement provides that Mr. Hurzeler will not compete with us for three years following the termination of his employment by us for cause or a voluntary termination by Mr. Hurzeler (or one year following termination by us for any other reason). In addition, the agreement provides that Mr. Hurzeler will not solicit our employees, consultants, independent contractors, service providers or current or prospective clients or customers for three years following the termination of his employment by us for cause or a voluntary termination by Mr. Hurzeler (or two-years following termination by us for any other reason). The agreement also contains standard perpetual provisions relating to confidentiality, intellectual property and non-disparagement.

Letter Agreement with Mr. Levine

We also entered into a letter agreement with our non-executive Chairman of the Board, Mr. Levine, which is described under the caption “Our 2018 Executive Compensation Program in Detail – Letter Agreement with Mr. Levine.”

Consideration of Most Recent Say-on-Pay Vote

At our 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, our stockholders were provided with the opportunity to cast an advisory vote on the compensation of our NEOs for 2016. Of the votes cast at our 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the say-on-pay vote yielded approximately 89% approval. Notwithstanding this favorable vote, we continue to seek input from our stockholders to understand their views with respect to our approach to executive compensation, and in particular in connection with the Committee’s efforts to tie compensation to performance. The next Say-on-Pay Vote will be at our 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Stockholders will also vote on Say-on-Pay Frequency at the 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

(1)Mr. Shulman became President and CEO on September 8, 2018 with an annual base salary of $800,000. Mr. Levine assumed the role of non-executive Chairman on September 8, 2018. The numbers in the “Salary” column for Messrs. Shulman and Levine represent their pro rata salary for 2018. On February 7, 2018, the Board determined not to designate Mr. Borchers as an “executive officer” within the meaning of Rule 3b-7 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
(2)For Mr. Shulman, the amount in this column represents his incentive bonus under his employment agreement but does not include the increase resulting from applying the performance factor under the Annual Plan. The award was paid in cash in the amount of $1,096,666 and in RSUs in the amount of $1,096,666. See note (5) below. For 2018, this column represents a one-time cash bonus award for Mr. Parker for his past contributions to the Company’s achievements, including the integration of the legacy Springleaf and OneMain operations. For 2016, the amount in this column represents a guaranteed cash bonus paid to Mr. Parker pursuant to the terms of his employment agreement.
(3)The amount in this column for Mr. Shulman reflects a replacement equity award per his employment agreement. The amount for 2018 for Mr. Parker represents the grant date fair value of performance-based RSUs assuming achievement of target performance of $1,250,000. If achievement at the maximum level of performance had been assumed, the grant date fair value of Mr. Parker’s 2018 performance-based RSUs would have been $1,875,000. Actual achievement results approved by the Committee in February 2019 resulted in settlement of Mr. Parker’s 2018 performance-based RSUs at 130% of target level with RSUs that vest ratably in three annual installments beginning February 20, 2019. The amount for 2018 for Mr. Parker also includes a one-time equity award of 44,536 RSUs with a grant date fair value of $1,500,000 approved in June 2018 for his efforts in completing the Apollo-Värde Transaction and as a retention tool. These RSUs were scheduled to vest over three years with 50% vesting on June 18, 2018. The remainder of RSUs subject to this grant were forfeited upon Mr. Parker’s resignation as Executive Vice President and CFO effective on March 26, 2019. The amount for 2018 for Mr. Hurzeler represents the grant date fair value of performance-based RSUs assuming achievement at target performance of $1,000,000. If achievement at the maximum level of performance had been assumed, the grant date fair value of Mr. Hurzeler’s 2018 performance-based RSUs would have been $1,500,000. Actual achievement results approved by the Committee in February 2019 resulted in settlement of Mr. Hurzeler’s 2018 performance-based RSUs at 130% of target level with RSUs that vest ratably in three annual installments beginning February 20, 2019. The targets for Messrs. Parker and Hurzeler were designed, in part, to keep them focused on the Company’s performance through the transition period of the

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Apollo-Värde Transaction and as a retention incentive. For a summary of the assumptions used in the valuation of these equity-based awards, please see note 21 to our audited consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

(4)The grant date fair value for Mr. Shulman’s option awards granted during 2018 is calculated based on the probable satisfaction of the performance conditions for such awards as of the date of grant. In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, the grant date fair value of Mr. Shulman’s 2018 option awards is zero because the satisfaction of the required event-based performance conditions was not considered probable as of the grant date. Accordingly, there is no grant date fair value below or in excess of the amount reflected in the table above for Mr. Shulman that could be calculated and disclosed.
(5)Except for Mr. Shulman, amounts in this column represent amounts paid in respect of awards granted under the Annual Plan. For Mr. Shulman, the amount in this column represents the increase in Mr. Shulman’s incentive bonus resulting from applying the performance factor under the Annual Plan. Mr. Parker’s Annual Plan award payout in the amount of $2,033,600 was paid in 2019 partially in cash in the amount of $1,016,800 and partially in the form of RSUs with a grant date fair value of $1,016,800. The RSUs subject to this grant were forfeited upon Mr. Parker’s resignation as Executive Vice President and CFO effective on March 26, 2019. Mr. Hurzeler’s Annual Plan award payout in the amount of $2,033,600 was paid in 2019 partially in cash in the amount of $1,016,800 and partially in the form of RSUs with a grant date fair value of $1,016,800. Mr. Anderson’s Annual Plan award payout in the amount of $571,950 was paid in 2019 partially in cash in the amount of $500,000 and partially in the form of RSUs with a grant date fair value of $71,950. Mr. Anderson’s target award ($900,000) was pro-rated at 50% to $450,000 to reflect a six-month performance period of July 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018. Mr. Borchers’ Annual Plan award payout in the amount of $817,700 was paid in 2019 partially in cash in the amount of $500,000 and partially in the form of RSUs with a grant date fair value of $317,700. The RSUs granted in partial payment of Annual Plan awards vest in three annual installments. The targets for Messrs. Parker, Hurzeler, Borchers and Anderson were set, in part, to keep the executives focused on the Company’s performance through the transition period after the Apollo-Värde Transaction and as a retention incentive.
(6)Messrs. Levine, Borchers and Anderson are the only NEOs who were eligible to participate in the Pension Plans before they were closed to new participants on December 31, 2012. The change in the pension values for Messrs. Levine, Borchers and Anderson for 2018 was negative, $(4,194), $(87,755) and $(1,430), respectively. The amounts were calculated using the discount rates of 4.13% for the Retirement Plan and 3.93% for the Excess Plan as of December 31, 2018; discount rates of 4.05% for the Retirement Plan and 3.67% for the Excess Plan as of December 31, 2016; and discount rates of 4.27% for the Retirement Plan and 3.83% for the Excess Plan as of December 31, 2017.

The Committee approved a pro-rated incentive payout to Mr. Shulman in 2019 as reflected in the Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation column of the Summary Compensation Table for 2018 above. The Annual Plan awards were approved in July 2018 for the 2018 performance year with a target opportunity for Messrs.

The targets for Messrs. Parker, Hurzeler, Anderson and Borchers were set, in part, to keep the executives focused on the Company’s performance through the transition period after the Apollo-Värde Transaction and as a retention incentive.

In 2019, following a determination by the Committee of Messrs. Parker and Hurzeler’s achievement under the terms of their 2018 Equity Program awards, the Committee approved the achievement of the applicable performance metrics at 130%, and the performance-based RSUs were settled in service-based RSUs that vest in three annual installments beginning on February 20, 2019. The targets for Messrs. Parker and, Hurzeler were set, in part, to keep the executives focused on the Company’s performance through the transition period after the Apollo-Värde Transaction and as a retention incentive. Any unvested RSUs granted to Mr. Parker under the Equity Program were forfeited upon his resignation as our Executive Vice President and CFO effective March 26, 2019.

(1)The Retirement Plan and the Excess Plan were each frozen on December 31, 2012. The pension valuation assumptions for 2018 include: (i) discount rates of 4.13% for the Retirement Plan and 3.93% for the Excess Plan, (ii) normal retirement age (65), or current age, if older, and (iii) RP-2006 mortality table with scale MP-2018 projection, post retirement only.

Pension Plan Benefit Formulas

The Retirement Plan and Excess Plan formulas range from 0.925% to 1.425% times average final compensation for each year of credited service accrued prior to December 31, 2012, up to 44-years. For participants who retire after the normal retirement age of 65, the retirement benefit is actuarially adjusted to reflect the later benefit commencement date.

For purposes of both the Retirement Plan and the Excess Plan, average final compensation is the average annual pensionable salary of a participant during those three consecutive years in the last 10-years of credited service, prior to the Pension Plans being frozen, that afford the highest such average. Final average compensation does not include amounts attributable to overtime pay, supplemental cash incentive payments, annual cash bonuses or long-term incentive awards.

Death and Disability Benefits

Each of the Retirement Plan and the Excess Plan also provides for death and disability benefits. The Retirement Plan and the Excess Plan generally provide a death benefit to active participants who die before age 65 equal to 50% of the benefit the participant would have received if he or she had terminated employment on the date of death, survived until his or her earliest retirement date and elected a 50% joint and survivor annuity.

44

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Under the Retirement Plan and the Excess Plan, participants continued to accrue credited service through December 31, 2012 while receiving payments under SFI’s sponsored long-term disability plan or during periods of unpaid medical leave before reaching age 65 if they had at least 10-years of service when they become disabled. Participants who had less than 10-years of credited service when they become disabled continued to accrue credited service for a maximum of three additional years but no later than December 31, 2012.

As with other retirement benefits, in the case of death and disability benefits, the formula benefit under the Excess Plan is reduced by amounts payable under the Retirement Plan.

Nonqualified Deferred Compensation for 2018
