Item 5.02.  Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers.

On January 20, 2014, Tech Data Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an employment agreement (the “Employment Agreement”) among the Company, Nestor Cano, the Company’s President, Europe, and Tech Data Espana, S.L., the Company’s Spanish subsidiary (“TD Spain”). Mr. Cano has been rendering services to the Company since July 1989 and has been the President, Europe, since June 2007.

Pursuant to the Employment Agreement, Mr. Cano continues as President, Europe but the employment relationship will be with TD Spain instead of the Company. The Employment Agreement is for an indefinite term and is effective as of October 1, 2013. Mr. Cano’s base salary is 620,824 euros per year, subject to review from time to time, and Mr. Cano has an opportunity to earn incentive compensation under the Company’s Incentive Bonus Plan as determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company. For fiscal 2014, Mr. Cano’s target annual incentive will be 85% of his base salary, and is weighted as follows: 25% Company worldwide earnings per share, 25% European profitability (contribution margin) in euros, 25% European profitability (contribution margin) as %, and 25% European return on invested capital. Mr. Cano is also eligible to receive equity awards pursuant to the Company’s Long Term Incentive Plan as determined by the Compensation Committee. Mr. Cano remains entitled to the same terms and conditions applicable upon termination of employment as provided in the Company’s Executive Severance Plan. Mr. Cano is subject to non-competition and non-solicitation covenants during the term of his employment and for two years after such employment ends, provided that if Mr. Cano is terminated for cause or voluntarily resigns, then these covenants would not apply and Mr. Cano would not be entitled to severance.

On January 20, 2014, the Company also entered into an assignment letter with Mr. Cano pursuant to which Mr. Cano is assigned to Tech Data Limited, the Company’s United Kingdom subsidiary. The assignment is for an initial term of two years, and provides for relocation assistance, including a housing allowance and moving costs.
