Body Central takes measures to reduce compensation expense

May '14
Body Central Corp. announces the measures taken by company to reduce compensation expense in fiscal year 2014.
 
On May 8, 2014, Body Central Corp. entered into amendments to its employment agreements with Brian Woolf, its Chief Executive Officer, and Thomas W. Stoltz, its Chief Operating Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. Among other things, the Amendments provide that each of Mr. Woolf and Mr. Stoltz has agreed to voluntarily forgo certain compensation effective as of the current pay period until January 1, 2015. 
 
Pursuant to the Amendments, the salaries of Mr. Woolf and Mr. Stoltz will be reduced to $600,000 and $380,000, from $750,000 and $475,000, respectively. The Amendments provide that each of Mr. Woolf and Mr. Stoltz, if certain conditions are met, will regain the amount of compensation foregone as a result of the Amendments. 
 
The conditions include, among other things, a requirement that the Company achieve certain financial performance targets set by the Board of Directors (the "Board") during the second, third and fourth quarters of the 2014 fiscal year and a requirement that the Company receives an unqualified audit opinion (which does not express doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern) from its independent auditors for the fiscal year 2014.
 
As described in our Form 14A filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on April 4, 2014, our Board determined that an amendment to the Company's director compensation arrangements for the Company's 2014 fiscal year is reasonable and appropriate: (1) given that the Company is in the midst of a repositioning and turnaround, (2) after consideration to the current share price, and (3) to ensure the Company has a sufficient number of shares to adequately grant equity awards to key employees throughout the organization.  
 
The changes to the director compensation arrangements are effective as of May 8, 2014.  The material amendments include: (a) a reduction in the amount of the director's annual equity grants, from the $50,000 annual equity retainer formerly granted to each director in restricted shares, to an annual equity retainer of 12,500 restricted shares to each director, and (b) a reduction in the amount of the additional annual equity grants to the Chairman of the Board from the $25,000 annual target equity retainer formerly granted in restricted shares, to an annual equity retainer of 6,250 restricted shares.
