Employment Agreement [Amendment No. 1] - LIve Nation Worldwide Inc. and Alan Ridgeway

Employment Forms

  • Employment Agreement. Employers can customize an employment agreement that states the salary, benefits, working hours and other important provisions for their new or existing employee.
  • Consulting Agreement. Answer simple questions to build a contract with a consultant. Specify the services rendered, when payment is due, as well as IP rights.
  • Commission Agreement. Employers who compensate their sales employees based on commissions can prepare an agreement to reduce misunderstandings by specifying the base salary and how commissions are calculated.
  • Executive Employment Agreement. Companies may offer their business executives a contract that is different from the one provided to their regular employees. Executive employment agreements may be more complex because the compensation structure may include a combination of salary and commissions, provide for bonuses based on sales, stock or other financial targets, and include non-compete, confidentiality and severance provisions.
  • Sales Representative Contract. Independent sales representatives offer companies the potential to increase the sale of products or services without the burden of increasing headcount. Both parties should understand how commissions are calculated, when commissions will be paid, as well as how the representative will treat confidential information from the company and whether the representative may also sell a competing line of products or services.

     WHEREAS, the parties desire to amend the Agreement as set forth in this First Amendment to Employment Agreement (the "First Amendment"), to be effective as of August 8, 2006.
     NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged by the parties hereto, the parties hereby agree as follows:
     1. A new Section 3(j) is hereby added to the Agreement as follows:
"(j) Retention Bonus. The Company agrees to pay to the Employee One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) as a retention bonus (the "Retention Bonus"). This Retention Bonus will be offset against any Performance Bonus(es) subsequently earned by the Employee under this Agreement. If the Employee is still employed with the Company as of December 31, 2010 (the "Target Date"), any remaining Retention Bonus that has not been so offset ("Unearned Portion of the Retention Bonus") shall be deemed earned by the Employee. If the Employee's employment is terminated before the Target Date, any remaining Unearned Portion of the Retention Bonus shall be treated as follows: (i) if the Employee is terminated for Cause or terminates without Good Reason, the Employee shall repay any Unearned Portion of the Retention Bonus within ten (10) business days following termination; or (ii) if the Employee is terminated (A) without Cause or (B) due to death or disability or if the Employee terminates with Good Reason, the Employee shall be deemed to have earned any (otherwise) Unearned Portion of the Retention Bonus. The Employee acknowledges that the Retention Bonus shall be subject to withholding in accordance with the Company's ordinary payroll practices.
     2. This First Amendment represents the complete and total understanding of the parties with respect to the content thereof, and cannot be modified or altered except if done so in writing, executed by both parties.
     3. This First Amendment shall in no way modify, alter, change or otherwise delete any provision of the Agreement unless specifically done so by the terms of this First Amendment, and all the remaining provisions of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
