As previously announced, effective November 12, 2018, Lance Loeffler became Chief Financial Officer of Halliburton Company. Effective December 5, 2018, Mr. Loeffler was promoted to Executive Vice President.

In connection with his appointment as Executive Vice President, Halliburton entered into an Executive Agreement with Mr. Loeffler effective December 5, 2018.  Pursuant to the Executive Agreement, Mr. Loeffler will receive an annual base salary of $650,000, a restricted stock award of 29,800 shares to vest 20% annually over a five (5) year period, and nonqualified stock options to purchase 51,100 shares of Halliburton Company common stock with an exercise price of $31.44 per share that vest 33 1/3% annually over a three (3) year period, and will be eligible to participate in the company’s performance pay and performance unit incentive plans and to receive grants of restricted stock and stock options under the Halliburton Company Stock and Incentive Plan.  The Executive Agreement also restricts Mr. Loeffler from competing with the company or soliciting company personnel for a period of two years after termination of employment.  If Mr. Loeffler’s employment is terminated by Mr. Loeffler for good reason or by death, disability, or retirement or his employment is terminated by the company for any reason other than cause or Mr. Loeffler’s participation in a breach of fiduciary duty arising from a material violation of a U.S. federal or state law or failure to supervise an employee who substantially participated in such a violation (“significant violation”), all restrictions on restricted stock and units will lapse.  In addition, in the case of a termination by Mr. Loeffler for good reason or termination by the company for any reason other than cause or a significant violation, Mr. Loeffler will receive a lump sum cash payment equal to two years of his base salary then in effect.

The description of Mr. Loeffler’s Executive Agreement is qualified in its entirety by the provisions of the agreement, which is incorporated by reference to Exhibit 10.1 to this Form 8-K.
