Exhibit 10.58

 

SUMMARY OF RAYTHEON COMPANY EXECUTIVE SEVERANCE

AND CHANGE IN CONTROL GUIDELINES

 

Summary of Raytheon Company Executive Severance Guidelines

 

The Company has Executive Severance Guidelines (the “Severance Guidelines”), which were updated by the Management Development and Compensation Committee (the “MDCC”) effective as of January 1, 2010. The Severance Guidelines provide for severance payments and continuation of benefits for certain officers for designated periods upon their separation from the Company.

 

The Severance Guidelines provide for various levels of continued compensation and benefits for the Chief Executive Officer (a “Level 1 Executive”); senior vice presidents and vice presidents who are presidents of the Company’s Business Units (“Level 2 Executives”); other elected officers (“Level 3 Executives”); and appointed officers of the Company and vice presidents of the Company’s Business Units who directly report to Level 2 Executives (“Level 4 Executives”).

 

For new executives beginning January 1, 2010:

 

 

·

 

Level 1 Executive: (a) salary continuance of two (2) times the executive’s base salary and annual incentive bonus target and (b) the continuation of two (2) years of existing benefits and perquisites other than car allowance, excess liability insurance, financial planning and executive physical.

 

 

·

 

Level 2 Executive: (a) salary continuance of one (1) times the executive’s base salary and annual incentive bonus target and (b) the continuation of one (1) year of existing benefits and perquisites other than car allowance, excess liability insurance, financial planning and executive physical.

 

 

·

 

Level 3 Executive: (a) salary continuance of one (1) times the executive’s base salary and annual incentive bonus target and (b) the continuation of one (1) year of existing benefits and perquisites other than car allowance, excess liability insurance, financial planning and executive physical.

 

 

·

 

Level 4 Executive: (a) salary continuance of one (1) times the executive’s base salary and (b) the continuation of one (1) year of existing benefits and perquisites other than car allowance, excess liability insurance, financial planning and executive physical.

 

For current Level 1-4 Executives, effective January 1, 2010, the previous guidelines for severance payments and continuation of benefits will apply provided that the following perquisites will no longer be provided upon separation from the Company: car lease/allowance, excess liability insurance, financial planning and executive physical.

 

Summary of Raytheon Company Executive Change in Control Guidelines

 

In addition, the Company has Executive Change in Control Guidelines (the “Change in Control Guidelines”), which were updated by the Management Development and Compensation Committee (the “MDCC”) effective as of January 1, 2010. The Change in Control Guidelines provide for certain payments to certain officers upon a qualifying termination within two (2) years of a change in control of the Company pursuant to Change in Control Severance Agreements.

 

Effective January 1, 2010, the following perquisites will not be provided under Change in Control Severance Agreements to any executives: car lease/allowance, excess liability insurance, financial planning and executive physical.

 

For new executives beginning January 1, 2010, no 280G excise tax gross-ups will be made. For current executives, their Change in Control Severance Agreements were amended to reflect that 280G excise tax gross-ups will not apply with respect to any payments made after a Change in Control that occurs on or after January 1, 2012.

 

 

 

 

 

EX-10.21 2 dex1021.htm FORM OF CHANGE IN CONTROL SEVERANCE AGREEMENT

Exhibit 10.21

Form of

Raytheon Company

Change In Control Severance Agreement

Agreement by and between Raytheon Company, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and                      (“Executive”) dated as of             , 201    .

The Board of Directors of Company believes it is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders to have the continued dedication of Executive notwithstanding the possibility, threat or occurrence of a Change in Control (as defined in Section 1.5); to diminish the inevitable distraction of Executive due to personal uncertainties and risks created by a threatened or pending Change in Control; and to provide Executive with compensation and benefits arrangements upon a Change in Control which are competitive with those offered by other corporations.

Therefore, the Board of Directors has caused the Company to enter into this Agreement, and the Company and Executive agree as follows:

1 DEFINITIONS

For purposes of this Agreement, the following terms have the following meanings.

1.1 “Affiliated Company” means an affiliated company as defined in Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

1.2 “Base Salary” means Executive’s annual base salary paid or payable (including any base salary which has been earned but deferred) to Executive by the Company or an affiliated company immediately preceding the date of a Change in Control.

1.3 “Board” means the Board of Directors of the Company.

1.4 “Cause” means Executive’s:

 

 

(i)

willful and continued failure to perform substantially Executive’s duties with the Company or one of its affiliates as such duties are constituted as of a Change in Control after the Company delivers to Executive written demand for substantial performance specifically identifying the manner in which Executive has not substantially performed Executive’s duties;


 

(ii)

conviction for a felony; or

 

 

(iii)

willfully engaging in illegal conduct or gross misconduct which is materially and demonstrably injurious to the Company.

For purposes of this Section 1.4, no act or omission by Executive shall be considered “willful” unless it is done or omitted in bad faith or without reasonable belief that Executive’s action or omission was in the best interests of the Company. Any act or failure to act based upon (a) authority given pursuant to a resolution duly adopted by the Board, (b) instructions of the Chief Executive Officer or a senior officer of the Company, or (c) advice of counsel for the Company shall be conclusively presumed to be done or omitted to be done by Executive in good faith and in the best interests of the Company. For purposes of subsections (i) and (iii) above, Executive shall not be deemed to be terminated for Cause unless and until there shall have been delivered to Executive a copy of a resolution duly adopted by the affirmative vote of not less than three quarters of the entire membership of the Board at a meeting called and held for such purpose (after reasonable notice is provided to Executive and Executive is given an opportunity, together with counsel, to be heard before the Board) finding that in the good faith opinion of the Board Executive is guilty of the conduct described in subsection (i) or (iii) above and specifying the particulars thereof in detail.

1.5 “Change in Control” of the Company shall be deemed to have occurred as of the first day that any one or more of the following conditions shall have been satisfied:

 

 

(i)

Any individual, entity or group (within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) or 14(d)(2) of the Exchange Act) (a “Person”), other than those Persons in control of the Company as of the date hereof or a trustee or other fiduciary holding securities under an employee benefit plan of the Company or a corporation owned directly or indirectly by the stockholders of the Company in substantially the same proportions as their ownership of stock of the Company, becomes the beneficial owner (as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act), directly or indirectly, of securities of the Company representing 25% or more of the combined voting power of the Company’s then outstanding securities; or

 

 

(ii)

A change in the Board such that individuals who as of the date hereof constitute the Board (the “Incumbent Board”) cease for any reason to constitute at least a majority of the Board; provided, however, that any individual becoming a director subsequent to the date hereof whose election or nomination for election by the Company’s stockholders was approved by a vote of at least a majority of the directors then comprising the Incumbent Board shall be considered as though such individual were a member of the Incumbent Board; or

 

2


 

(iii)

The consummation of: (a) a plan of complete liquidation of the Company; (b) an agreement for the sale or disposition of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets; (c) a merger, consolidation or reorganization of the Company with or involving any other corporation, other than a merger, consolidation or reorganization that would result in the voting securities of the Company outstanding immediately prior thereto continuing to represent (either by remaining outstanding or by being converted into voting securities of the surviving entity) at least 50% of the combined voting power of the voting securities of the Company (or such surviving entity) outstanding immediately after such merger, consolidation or reorganization.

However, in no event shall a Change in Control be deemed to have occurred for purposes of this Agreement if Executive is included in a Person that consummates the Change in Control. Executive shall not be deemed to be included in a Person by reason of ownership of (i) less than 3% of the equity in the Person or (ii) an equity interest in the Person which is otherwise not significant as determined prior to the Change of Control by a majority of the non-employee continuing directors of the Company.

1.6 “Code” means the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

1.7 “Good Reason” means any of the following acts or omissions by the Company without Executive’s express written consent:

 

 

(i)

assigning to Executive duties materially inconsistent with Executive’s position (including status, offices, titles and reporting requirements), authority or responsibilities immediately prior to a Change in Control or any other action by the Company which results in a material diminution of Executive’s position, authority, duties or responsibilities as constituted immediately prior to a Change in Control;

 

 

(ii)

requiring Executive (a) to be based at any office or location in excess of 50 miles from Executive’s office or location immediately prior to a Change in Control or (b) to travel on Company business to a substantially greater extent than required immediately prior to a Change in Control;

 

 

(iii)

reducing Executive’s Base Salary;

 

 

(iv)

materially reducing in the aggregate Executive’s incentive opportunities under the Company’s or an affiliated company’s short- and long-term incentive programs as such opportunities exist immediately prior to a Change in Control;

(i)

the Company terminates the employment of Executive for any reason other than for Cause including, without limitation, forcing Executive to retire on any date not of Executive’s choosing;

(iv)

an amount equal to the product of Executive’s unpaid targeted annual bonus established for the plan year in which a Change in Control occurs multiplied by a fraction the numerator of which is the number of days elapsed in the current fiscal year to the Qualifying Termination and the denominator of which is 365;

 

 

(v)

an amount equal to the dollar value of Executive’s accrued vacation through a Qualifying Termination;

 

 

(vi)

an amount equal to any increase in the aggregate benefits accrued by Executive as of a Qualifying Termination under the Company’s supplemental retirement plan attributable to calculating the benefits by assuming that Executive’s employment continued for three years following a Qualifying Termination; provided, however, that for purposes of determining Executive’s final average pay under the supplemental retirement plan, Executive’s actual pay history as of the Qualifying Termination shall be used; and

 

 

(vii)

fringe benefits pursuant to all welfare, benefit and retirement plans under which Executive and Executive’s family are eligible to receive benefits or coverage as of a Change in Control, including but not limited to life insurance, hospitalization, disability, medical, dental, pension and thrift plans, but excluding car allowance, excess liability insurance, financial planning, and executive physicals.
