(d) On November 16, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of HP Inc. (the “Company”) expanded the size of the Board and elected Kim K.W. Rucker to serve as a director of the Company, effective immediately. Ms. Rucker is the former executive vice president, general counsel and secretary of Andeavor, which was acquired by Marathon Petroleum in 2018. The Board has determined that Ms. Rucker qualifies as an independent director under the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange and the director independence standards set forth in the Company’s Corporate Governance Guidelines. The Board anticipates naming Ms. Rucker to serve on one or more committees of the Board, but at the time of this Form 8-K, the Board has not determined the committee(s) to which she will be named.
Ms. Rucker will receive compensation for service as a non-employee director of the Company consistent with the compensation generally provided to other non-employee directors, as determined by the Board from time to time. Currently, non-employee directors generally receive, among other things (i) an annual cash retainer of $105,000, which, in lieu of cash, he or she may elect to receive an equivalent value of Company equity securities in the form of fully vested shares of common stock of the Company (“shares”), and an annual equity retainer of $220,000 in the form of fully vested shares, (ii) $2,000 in cash for each Board meeting attended in excess of ten per year and (iii) $2,000 in cash for each Board committee meeting attended in excess of ten meetings per committee per year. For Ms. Rucker’s first partial year of Board service, her annual cash retainer will be pro-rated and paid in the form of cash and her annual equity retainer will be pro-rated and paid in the form of fully vested shares.
There are no arrangements or understandings between Ms. Rucker and any other persons pursuant to which Ms. Rucker was selected as a director. Ms. Rucker has no direct or indirect material interest in any transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
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.
