Item 5.02.

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

 

On January 28, 2019, based on a review of selected third-party compensation surveys, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of Windtree Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) approved a three percent merit increase to the base salary of each of the Company’s named executive officers, including the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Craig Fraser, its Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, John Tattory, and its Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Steven G. Simonson, M.D.

 

Mr. Fraser’s base salary was increased to $453,482 from $440,274. Mr. Tattory’s base salary was increased to $337,764 from $327,926. In addition, based on a review of Dr. Simonson’s base salary compared to that of Chief Medical Officers in comparable companies, his base salary was increased to $380,000 from $349,247 to take into account the three percent merit increase, and a market adjustment based on market data. The cash compensation adjustments will be effective as of February 1, 2019.

 

In connection with the acquisition in November 2017 of a controlling interest in the Company by Lee’s Pharmaceutical Holdings Limited, each of the Company’s named executive officers agreed to waive his annual bonuses for the years 2017 and 2018 and were granted RSUs having a value of the combined bonus amounts. Accordingly, the named executive officers were not awarded an annual bonus with respect to either 2017 and 2018.
