Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
VF held its annual meeting of shareholders (the Meeting) on April 28, 2015. At the Meeting, in accordance with the tenure policies of VF Corporation (VF) set forth in its Corporate Governance Principles and By-laws, Ursula O. Fairbairn and George Fellows did not stand for reelection to the Board of Directors. VF acknowledged the outstanding service rendered by Ms. Fairbairn and Mr. Fellows since their election to the Board in 1994 and 1997, respectively. The Board has decreased the size of the Board to eleven members.
At the Meeting, VFs shareholders approved the amendment and restatement of VFs 1996 Stock Compensation Plan (the Plan) in order to, among other things, increase the number of shares of common stock available for future grants by 20 million shares. The Board and the Compensation Committee of the Board previously approved the amendment and restatement of the Plan, subject to such shareholder approval. VFs executive officers are eligible to participate in the Plan.
The terms and conditions of the Plan and the effect of the amendments to the Plan are more fully described in VFs definitive proxy statement for the Annual Meeting filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 19, 2015 (the Proxy Statement). That summary and the above description of the Plan do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Amended and Restated 1996 Stock Compensation Plan, which was filed as Appendix B to the Proxy Statement and is incorporated herein by reference.
