On December 22, 2017, Winnebago Industries, Inc. (“Company”) and Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Bryan L. Hughes ("Executive") entered into a customary Executive Change of Control Agreement ("the Agreement"). The Agreement provides for compensation to be paid to the Executive in certain situations specified in the Agreement when a change of control occurs. A change of control for purposes of the Agreement means the time when (i) any person or entity becomes an Acquiring Person (as defined in the Agreement), which generally means an acquisition of 20% or more the Company's common stock, or (ii) individuals who shall qualify as Continuing Directors (as defined in the Agreement) of the Company shall have ceased for any reason to constitute at least a majority of the Board of Directors of the Company. In the event a change of control occurs, the Executive shall be entitled to a payment of three times the average aggregate compensation paid to the Executive during the three fiscal years immediately preceding the change of control if the Executive is terminated within three years of the change in control, other than by his death, Disability, Retirement, termination for Cause by the Company (as such terms are defined in the Agreement), or if he voluntarily terminates his employment with the Company, unless he does so for “Good Reason” as defined in the Agreement. The Agreement is designed to both retain the services of the Executive during the change of control process and to assure that the executive’s interests are closely aligned with the interests of shareholders. The Agreement does not provide for gross up of any payment made for applicable excise taxes. The foregoing discussion is a summary of the Agreement and is qualified entirely by reference to the terms of the Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 99.1.
