Item 5.02
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
As previously disclosed in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 3, 2024 (the “Original Form 8-K”), on April 29, 2024, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Paramount Global (the “Company” or “Paramount Global”) established an Office of the CEO, consisting of the following three senior company executives: George Cheeks, President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS; Chris McCarthy, President and Chief Executive Officer, Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios and Paramount Media Networks; and Brian Robbins, President and Chief Executive Officer of Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon. The Board designated Mr. McCarthy as interim principal executive officer, effective as of May 1, 2024, for purposes of the rules and regulations of the SEC. We are filing this Amendment No. 1 to the Original Form 8-K to report that, on June 4, 2024, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Company’s Board approved the following changes to the compensation of Mr. McCarthy in connection with his appointment to the Office of the CEO:
Mr. McCarthy was designated as a participant in the Paramount Global Executive Change in Control Severance Protection Plan (the “Plan”), which was previously disclosed on a Form 8-K filed with the SEC on November 17, 2023, pursuant to which Mr. McCarthy has a severance multiple under the Plan of two and a benefit continuation period of 24 months.
For the period that he serves in the Office of the CEO, and for his performance of such service, the Committee awarded Mr. McCarthy a target annual cash bonus under the Company’s Short-Term Incentive Plan (“STIP”) of $2,750,000. This bonus opportunity will be prorated and apply only to the portion of the current fiscal year in which he serves in the Office of the CEO. Mr. McCarthy’s actual bonus payout will be determined based on achievement of the Company’s pre-established performance goals.
Item 8.01
Other Information.
On June 4, 2024, in connection with their appointments to the Office of the CEO, the Committee also (1) designated each of Mr. Cheeks and Mr. Robbins as a participant in the Plan, pursuant to which each executive has a severance multiple under the Plan of two and a benefit continuation period of 24 months, and (2) for the period that they serve in the Office of the CEO, and for their performance of such service, awarded each of Mr. Cheeks and Mr. Robbins a target annual cash bonus of $2,750,000 under the STIP, prorated for the portion of the current fiscal year that such executive serves in the Office of the CEO. Each executive’s actual bonus payout will be determined based on achievement of the Company’s pre-established performance goals.
