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


On June 26 2018, Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a letter agreement (the “Letter Agreement”) with Douglas S. Ingram, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, amending the Employment Agreement and the Change in Control and Severance Agreement, each dated June 26, 2017, between the Company and Mr. Ingram (the “Employment Agreement” and the “CIC Severance Agreement”, respectively).  The Letter Agreement amends the CIC Severance Agreement to provide that, if Mr. Ingram experiences a termination by the Company without “cause” or by him for “good reason” during the 90-day period preceding or the 24-month period following a “change in control” (as those terms are defined in the CIC Severance Agreement), all of his performance option award previously granted on June 26, 2017 will vest to the extent earned, as determined in accordance with the CIC Severance Agreement, and will not be prorated to reflect the period in which Mr. Ingram was employed by the Company.  Additionally, the Letter Agreement amends the noncompetition covenant set forth in the Employment Agreement to extend its term until the later of (1) eighteen (18) months following the termination of Mr. Ingram’s employment and (2) June 26, 2023, to add Limb-girdle muscular dystrophies and to be more precise about what activities are “engaged in” or “planned”.  Except as amended by the Letter Agreement, the CIC Severance Agreement and the Employment Agreement remain in effect in accordance with their terms.


The foregoing summary does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the complete copy of the Letter Agreement, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending June 30, 2018.  







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
