Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers


On June 11, 2020, the Compensation Committee (“Committee”) of the Board of Directors of Destination XL Group, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the Destination XL Group, Inc. Third Amended and Restated Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “LTIP”), in which the Company’s executives (including its Named Executive Officers) and certain other members of management are eligible to participate.  The LTIP was amended as follows:


Section 6(a) relating to the time-based portion of the LTIP was amended to modify how the number of stock options is determined if a stock option award is granted.  As amended, the number of stock options to be granted pursuant to an award will be determined by taking the lesser of (i) the dollar value of the stock option award divided by the closing price of the Company’s common stock on grant date, multiplied by a factor of 1.1 to 1.8 as determined by the Committee or (ii) the dollar value of the stock option award divided by the Black-Scholes value on the grant date; and



Section 6(b) relating to the performance-based portion of the LTIP was amended to remove the ability to grant stock options for the performance-vesting benefit amount.

The LTIP is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by this reference.

Grant of Stock Option to Chief Executive Officer


On June 10, 2020, the Committee granted to Harvey S. Kanter, the Company’s President and CEO, a stock option to purchase up to 450,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, at an exercise price of $0.64 per share, which will vest in three equal installments with the first tranche vesting on June 10, 2021, the second tranche on April 1, 2022 and remaining tranche on April 1, 2023. In approving the award, the Committee determined that it was important to preserve continuity of leadership through the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertain recovery period, and accordingly to provide Mr. Kanter with a long-term, equity incentive that aligns his interests with those of the Company’s stockholders.
