Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Douglas H. Miller resigned from the positions of Chief Executive Officer, Chairman of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) and director of EXCO Resources, Inc. (the “Company”), effective as of the close of business on November 20, 2013.

In connection with Mr. Miller’s resignation, the Company entered into a Settlement Agreement and Mutual Release and Waiver of Claims with Mr. Miller, dated as of November 20, 2013 (the “Agreement”). The Agreement includes covenants from Mr. Miller not to solicit, contact or communicate with employees or independent contractors of the Company prior to December 31, 2014. The Agreement also includes customary waiver and release, non-disclosure, confidentiality and non-disparagement provisions. In consideration of the terms set forth in the Agreement, the Agreement provides for benefits consisting of: (i) all accrued but unpaid salary through November 20, 2013, (ii) health care benefits coverage for Mr. Miller and his dependents through May 31, 2015, (iii) cash payments of $4.0 million dollars on November 29, 2013 and $1.0 million on December 31, 2014, and (iv) an aggregate of 323,983 shares of unvested restricted stock being accelerated to immediately become fully vested as of November 20, 2013; provided, that Mr. Miller is prohibited from selling, pledging or otherwise transferring such shares of restricted stock until April 15, 2014. The 203,400 shares of unvested restricted stock that were granted to Mr. Miller on August 13, 2013 were forfeited back to the Company on November 20, 2013 in connection with Mr. Miller’s resignation. In accordance with the terms of our standard stock option agreements, Mr. Miller’s unvested stock options were forfeited back to the Company on November 20, 2013 and Mr. Miller will have 30 days to exercise any of his vested stock options, which have an exercise price ranging from $7.50 per share to $18.50 per share.

The foregoing description of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated by reference herein.
