Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On September 3, 2004, Manugistics Group, Inc. (the Company) entered into an employment agreement (the Agreement) with Jeffrey L. Kissling, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and the terms of which are incorporated herein. The Agreement sets forth the terms of Mr. Kisslings employment as Chief Technology Officer effective September 3, 2004. Mr. Kissling reports to Joseph L. Cowan, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. In connection with his employment, Mr. Kissling simultaneously entered into the Companys standard form of Conditions of Employment (the Conditions of Employment), which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 hereto and the terms of which are incorporated herein.
On September 9, 2004, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors granted to Mr. Kissling a stock option to acquire 200,000 shares of common stock in accordance with the terms specified in the Agreement.
Under the terms of the Agreement, Mr. Kissling receives an annual base salary of $225,000.00, and is eligible to receive a bonus of up to 60% of his base salary based on criteria to be determined by Mr. Cowan. Mr. Kissling is also entitled to participate in the Companys benefits program for executive officers, including the Manugistics, Inc. 401(k) Retirement Savings Plan, comprehensive medical, dental and vision care, life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment insurance and long-term disability insurance.
In the event that Mr. Kisslings employment with the Company is terminated without cause, Mr. Kissling will receive his base salary and benefits, to the extent terminated employees are eligible to receive such benefits under the terms of the respective benefit plans, for up to twenty-six weeks following the date of termination. Both severance and benefits cease immediately if Mr. Kissling begins alternative employment during the Severance Period. Any post-termination period during which Mr. Kissling is receiving severance payments and benefits is defined as the Severance Period.
Conditions of Employment
Mr. Kissling has signed the Companys standard form of Conditions of Employment, which is signed by all U.S. employees as a condition to employment. Under the Conditions of Employment, among other things, Mr. Kissling has represented that he: is not a party to any agreements with prior employers or other persons or businesses that would prohibit, impede or hinder his employment with the Company or the performance of his duties under the Agreement; will provide full time efforts on behalf of the Company; will maintain the confidentiality of the trade secrets and confidential information of the Company, will not solicit employees or customers of the Company, or engage in competitive employment or services for the six-month period following termination of employment; and will assign to the Company all designs, improvements, inventions and discoveries created using the Companys resources or property or during working hours for which Mr. Kissling was compensated.
Stock Option Agreement
In addition, under the terms of the Agreement, on September 9, 2004, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors granted Mr. Kissling an option (the Option) to purchase 200,000 shares of common stock under the Companys 1998 Amended and Restated Stock Option Plan (the Plan), as set forth in the Notice of Grant of Stock Option and Option Agreement (the Option Agreement), which is filed as Exhibit 10.3 hereto and the terms of which are incorporated herein. Under the terms of Option Agreement, the Option vests over five (5) years from the date of grant in sixty (60) equal monthly installments and is exercisable at an exercise price of $2.4100 per share, the fair market value of a share of common stock of the Company on the date of grant as determined under the Plan. Upon termination of employment, the Option will continue to be exercisable through the thirty-day period following the later of the date of termination or the last day of the Severance Period, subject to earlier expiration under the terms of the Plan. The Option will continue to vest and be exercisable during any Severance Period, and also provides for certain change in control rights as described in Option Agreement.
