(e) 
Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

On April 20, 2012, Spartan Motors, Inc. (the "Company") filed a proxy statement (the "Proxy Statement") for its 2012 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "Annual Meeting"), to be held on Wednesday, May 23, 2012, at 5:00 p.m., local time, at the Soar Room at AL!VE, 800 W. Lawrence Avenue, Charlotte, Michigan  48813. The Proxy Statement included a proposal to approve the Company's Stock Incentive Plan of 2012 (the "Plan").
 
On May 10, 2012, Institutional Shareholder Services (" ISS") published a proxy analysis and vote recommendation for the Company's Annual Meeting. The proposal to approve the Plan received an unfavorable recommendation from ISS because the Plan, as originally proposed, provided that a "change in control" of the Company (which generally results in an acceleration of vesting of awards granted under the Plan) was triggered upon shareholder approval of a sale of the Company or other change-in-control transaction, rather than the consummation of the transaction.  After consideration of the recommendation by ISS and the provisions of the Plan, the Board of Directors of the Company has amended the Plan to provide that a "change in control" for purposes of the Plan is triggered upon consummation of a sale of the Company or other change-in-control transaction, and not just the shareholder approval of such transaction.

The foregoing is a summary description of certain terms of the Plan, as amended, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Plan, as amended, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
