JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Industry veteran Peter Lynch has agreed to stay on with Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. until June 30, 2010, according to a filing yesterday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Lynch's new contractual agreement, which he worked out with the company, and its creditors' committee, establishes a $1.25 million base salary, plus multiple bonuses. Lynch will continue to serve as Winn-Dixie's president and c.e.o., and will also serve as the chairman of the board.
Under the contract, he will receive an annual base salary of $1.25 million, plus full benefits. For each fiscal year ending during the term of employment, he is eligible to receive a bonus equal to 100 percent of his base salary if the company meets its target performance objectives.
Winn-Dixie has agreed to pay Lynch an additional bonus for fiscal year 2007 in an amount equal to $2 million, less all applicable withholding taxes, promptly following the restructuring date.
Winn-Dixie's plan to emerge from bankruptcy was approved on Nov. 8. At that time, the retailer said it expected to emerge from Chapter 11 within 30 days.
