Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


On March 31, 2014, the Company entered into an Employment Agreement with Carl W. Hastings replacing a prior agreement. The Agreement is for a term of 15 years effective from January 1, 2013. The term of employment for Mr. Hastings is effective for a period of six years commencing January 1, 2013 and a consulting term is provided for the period commencing six months following the expiration of the employment term and expiring on December 31, 2027. The Agreement provides for Mr. Hastings to receive base annual compensation during the first three years of the employment term of not less than $360,000, and, during the second three years, $270,000. During the second three years of Mr. Hastings’ employment term, Mr. Hastings is obligated to devote approximately one-half of his productive time to the performance of his duties for the Company. During the employment term, Mr. Hastings is also to participate in the Company’s annual incentive compensation and the Company’s long-term incentive compensation plans, the Company’s stock option plan and such other compensation plans as the Company may from time to time have for executives. In the event of Mr. Hastings’ death during the term of the agreement, payments equal to his total compensation under the agreement will be made to his heirs for a period of six months.


During the consulting term of the Agreement, Mr. Hastings will be obligated to perform services at the rate of approximately 40 hours per month. He will be entitled to receive compensation at the rate of a base amount of $13,000 per month adjusted periodically based on changes in the consumer price index. During the consulting term, Mr. Hastings will not participate in the Company’s incentive plans.


The agreement includes the obligation of Mr. Hastings to maintain the confidentiality of the Company’s confidential information, an obligation to assign to the Company all inventions and a covenant of Mr. Hastings not to compete with the Company.


A copy of the Employment Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.1.
