Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.


On March 4, 2021, RGLD Gold AG, a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal Gold, Inc. (“Royal Gold” or “our”), entered into an Addendum to the Employment Contract (the “Addendum”) with Daniel Breeze, Vice President Corporate Development of RGLD Gold AG. The Addendum amends the Employment Contract, dated January 1, 2019, between RGLD Gold AG and Mr. Breeze (with the Addendum, the “Employment Contract”). The Addendum provides that, if RGLD Gold AG terminates Mr. Breeze’s employment without good cause (as defined in the Employment Contract) or Mr. Breeze terminates his employment for good cause (as defined in the Employment Contract) and the termination does not occur within 90 days before or two years after a change of control (as defined in the Employment Contract) of Royal Gold, provided that Mr. Breeze submits certain required consents, Mr. Breeze is entitled to a severance payment equal to one times his annual base salary plus average cash bonus paid for the previous three full fiscal years (or such fewer full fiscal years of employment) ending immediately prior to the Termination Date (as defined in the Employment Contract). These benefits are generally consistent with the benefits provided to our other executives.


The foregoing description of the Addendum does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Addendum, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02.
