Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the 'Committee') of Diebold Nixdorf, Incorporated (the 'Company') suspended the Quarterly Bonus Program (the 'Program') for named executive officers, effective immediately. Given the challenges the Company faced late last year, the Committee felt it important to establish the Program to retain and focus key leaders during a very challenging period. The Committee has exercised its discretion to suspend the Program because, in the Committee's view, the Program accomplished its goal of stabilizing the Company and retaining key personnel to propel the DN Now initiative. The Committee feels that, with this stability, the shareholder-approved annual incentive plan and longterm performance-based awards will provide appropriate incentives to the named executive officers to drive the Company's strategic initiatives and critical business goals. The Committee acknowledges and appreciates feedback from shareholders regarding the use of discretionary bonuses for named executive officers, which are not expected to be a continuing component of the compensation structure going forward.
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.
