On August 10, 2013, Agilysys, Inc.

Ms. Seebeck has served as the Company’s vice president and controller since November 2011. She joined the Company from Premiere Global Services, Inc., a publicly traded provider of virtual meeting solutions in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, where she most recently served as Vice President of Finance, Asia Pacific. She also served as Premiere’s Vice President and Corporate Controller from 2002 to 2008. Previously, she served as a senior associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers. She is a certified public accountant and holds a BSBA in Accounting from John Carroll University.

Ms. Seebeck’s annual salary will be $240,000, and her fiscal year annual incentive opportunity will be equal to 50% of her base salary. She received 2,714 stock settled stock appreciation rights (SSARs) and 1,754 restricted shares upon her appointment. Her SSARs have an exercise price of $11.40, a seven-year term, and vest ratably over a three-year period, on March 31, 2014, 2015 and 2016. The restricted shares vest ratably over the same vesting period as the SSARs.

In connection with Ms. Seebeck’s original hire, the Company entered into an employment agreement with her whereby she will be paid her current base salary and annual incentive and will receive one year of her health and welfare benefits upon termination without cause, or upon a substantial change to her responsibilities or compensation if Ms. Seebeck terminates her employment within the 30-day period following such change. Her employment agreement contains provisions for the protection of the Company’s confidential information for an indefinite period and non-compete and non-solicitation clauses for a one-year period. Other than her employment arrangements, Ms. Seebeck is not a party to any related person transactions with the Company or any of its executive officers, directors, or related persons and does not have any family relationships with any of the Company’s executive officers, directors, or related persons.
