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

In response to shareholder feedback and as part of our commitment to robust executive pay practices, on June 5, 2020, Tanger Properties Limited Partnership (the “Company”) entered into amendments to the employment agreements (the “Amendments”) of the following executives: Lisa J. Morrison, Chad D. Perry, Virginia R. Summerell, Carrie A. Warren, James F. Williams and Charles A. Worsham.
Prior to the Amendments, each of the foregoing executives was entitled to certain severance benefits upon voluntary resignation following a change in control (as defined in the applicable employment agreement). Pursuant to the respective Amendment, the executives have each agreed to forgo his or her right to such severance benefits as described below.
Following a change in control, Ms. Morrison, Ms. Summerell, Mr. Williams and Mr. Worsham will no longer be entitled to severance benefits upon a voluntary resignation without good reason (as defined in the applicable employment agreement). Such executives shall instead continue to be eligible for severance benefits upon termination by the Company without cause (as defined in the applicable employment agreement) or voluntary resignation for good reason (as defined in the applicable employment agreement) following a change in control.
Further, Mr. Perry and Ms. Warren agreed to a revised definition of “good reason,” pursuant to which Mr. Perry and Ms. Warren, respectively, will no longer have good reason to terminate his or her employment solely due to the occurrence of a change in control. Following a change in control, Mr. Perry and Ms. Warren shall remain eligible for severance benefits upon a termination without cause or voluntary resignation for good reason (as modified by the Amendment).
The foregoing summary of the Amendments is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendments, copies of which are attached as 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
