Section 5-Corporate Governance and Management
Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On April 28, 2014, United Technologies Corporation (“UTC”) held its 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareowners. Shareowners submitting votes for the meeting approved the amendment and restatement of the United Technologies Corporation 2005 Long-Term Incentive Plan, which following the amendment and restatement will be referred to as the “United Technologies Corporation Long-Term Incentive Plan” (the “Plan”). The amendments authorize the issuance of an additional 30 million shares of Common Stock under the Plan, extend the term of the Plan until April 30, 2020, provide certain additional performance metrics that may be used to set vesting targets for performance-based awards, strengthen the Plan’s clawback provisions, modify other provisions of the Plan to conform to recent regulatory changes and adopt additional changes in terms and conditions related to the administration and interpretation of the Plan. The amendments became effective on April 28, 2014, upon approval by shareowners.
A description of the Plan is set forth in UTC's definitive proxy statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 14, 2014 and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms and conditions of the Plan, a copy of which is included herewith as Exhibit 10.1 to this Report and incorporated herein by reference.
