On December 9, 2020, the Board of Directors of Primo Water Corporation (the “Company”) approved an Amended and Restated Severance and Non-Competition Plan (the “Amended and Restated Severance Plan”), which amends and restates the Company’s Severance and Non-Competition Plan dated February 18, 2009, as previously amended on August 1, 2019 and March 2, 2020. The Amended and Restated Severance Plan, among other things, (i) increases the severance multiple for each of the three employee participant categories, (ii) calculates the bonus component of the cash severance payment based on the participant’s target bonus for the year in which termination occurs rather than the participant’s average bonus for the prior two years, (iii) provides for pro-rata payment of the participant’s annual bonus based on actual performance for the year of termination, (iv) caps health and welfare benefit continuation at 18 months, and (v) provides for up to $15,000 of outplacement assistance. The other material terms of the existing plan were not changed by the amendment and restatement.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
