Tailored Brands, Inc. (the “Company”) hereby amends its Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 28, 2019 (the “Original Form 8-K”) which, among other things, announced the appointment of Dinesh Lathi as the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer.  At the time of the filing of the Original Form 8-K, Mr. Lathi’s letter agreement had not yet been finalized.  Accordingly, the sole purpose of this Amendment, pursuant to Instruction 2 to Item 5.02 of Form 8-K, is to provide Mr. Lathi’s finalized compensation information including revisions to what was included in the Original Form 8-K as well as the filing of Mr. Lathi’s signed letter agreement.


Item 5.02                                           Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.


(c) Pursuant to the terms of Mr. Lathi’s letter agreement, his initial base salary is $1,000,000.  Mr. Lathi’s bonus opportunity as Executive Chairman of $1,000,000 will be prorated to reflect the four months of the performance period from his October 1, 2018 start date through February 2, 2019.  Mr. Lathi is eligible for an annual bonus under the Company’s Annual Cash Incentive Plan, effective February 3, 2019, with a target of 100% of his base salary with a payout ranging from 0% to 150% of his target. In addition, Mr. Lathi will receive a one-time signing bonus of $200,000, which will be paid on or before the Company’s Annual Meeting in June 2019.


Also, Mr. Lathi will be awarded an equity grant in April 2019 with a fair market value of $5,500,000.  The components of the equity grant will be determined by the Compensation Committee at the time of grant.  On the date Mr. Lathi’s April 2019 equity award is granted, a prorated number of shares from his October 1, 2018 grant of deferred stock units will vest. The number of shares to vest will be based on the elapsed time beginning October 1, 2018 through the date of his April 2019 grant. Any dividends accrued will be paid on the shares that vest at this time. Any remaining shares that did not vest from Mr. Lathi’s October 1, 2018 grant will be forfeited.


Mr. Lathi will also participate in the Company’s Senior Executive Change in Control Severance Plan.


If Mr. Lathi is terminated without Cause or resigns for Good Reason (as both terms are defined in the Senior Executive Change in Control Severance Plan) from his employment with the Company, Mr. Lathi will receive the following as severance pay: 52 weeks of his then-current base pay, 100% of his then-annual target bonus, any actual bonus earned for the fiscal year in which he is terminated (prorated for portion of bonus year in the position and paid in April of the following fiscal year (no later than two-and-one-half months following the end of the bonus fiscal year)), and $25,000 as a payment to cover his COBRA costs for one year.  In addition, with respect to any then outstanding vested stock options and vested stock appreciation rights at the time of Mr. Lathi’s termination of employment, he will have the opportunity to exercise such awards no later than the earlier of (i) two years following the date of his termination of employment; and (ii) the date on which such awards expire.  The severance payments and extended exercise rights of stock options and stock appreciation rights are subject to the timely execution of a Separation Agreement and full release of claims.  If Mr. Lathi resigns from the Company without Good Reason or is terminated for Cause, he will not be eligible for any severance pay.
