Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Agilysys, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into revised employment agreements with its executive officers: James H. Dennedy, President and Chief Executive Officer; Janine Seebeck, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; Kyle Badger, Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary; and Larry Steinberg, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. The revised employment agreements were entered into and effective on July 18, 2014, have terms of three years each, and supersede and replace each executive’s previous employment agreement. The employment agreements do not change the compensation arrangements of the executives.

Under the terms of each employment agreement, upon termination of each executive’s employment by the Company without cause (as defined in the employment agreement) or by the executive in the event that within 30 days following notice from the executive of a substantial reduction in his or her responsibilities or compensation the Company fails to materially cure such condition (a “Change of Position”), the executive will be paid his or her annual base salary and target annual incentive bonus and will receive a payment equal to the executive’s total premium for one year of COBRA continuation coverage under the Company’s health benefit plan. If the executive’s employment with the Company or its successor is terminated by the Company or its successor without cause or by the executive due to a Change of Position within a two-year period following a change in control of the Company (as defined in the employment agreement), he or she will be paid severance equal to two times (i) his or her annual base salary, and (ii) his or her target annual incentive bonus, and will receive a payment equal to the executive’s total premium for one year of COBRA continuation coverage under the Company’s health benefit plan.

The employment agreements contain provisions for the protection of the Company’s confidential information for an indefinite period and non-compete and non-hire clauses for a one-year period following termination of employment. The foregoing summary of the employment agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of employment agreement which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
