1.A feature of top executive pay at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc., was its compensation recovery policy. The policy allows Krispy Kreme to take back annual or long-term incentive compensation paid to executive officers and certain other management team members in the event they are later found to have engaged in conduct “detrimental” to the company. Three types of misconduct are specified: (a) financial accounting or reporting violations, whether from gross negligence or willful misconduct, that trigger a restatement of previously issued financial statements; (b) business actions that result in a material negative revision of a financial or operating measure that was the basis for incentive awards already paid; and (c) fraud, theft, and similar acts. The executive may be required to reimburse the company for all, or a portion of, any incentive compensation (including equity-based awards) paid out during the previous 36 months as well as any profits realized from the sale of Krispy Kreme stock during that same period.
