Employment Agreement with Christopher J. Annas


Meridian Corporation (the “Corporation”), has entered into a written employment agreement with Mr. Annas, effective April 11, 2019. The agreement, which supersedes the Corporation’s previous employment agreement with Mr. Annas, governs the terms and conditions of Mr. Annas’ employment as the Corporation’s Chief Executive Officer.  The term of Mr. Annas’ employment agreement is for a three (3) year period.  The initial term shall be extended automatically for one (1) additional day each day so that a constant three (3) year period shall remain in effect, until such time as the Corporation’s Board of Directors or Mr. Annas elects not to extend the term of the agreement by giving written notice to the other in which case the term shall be fixed and shall end on the third (3rd) anniversary of the receipt of written notice.  The employment agreement provides that Mr. Annas will be paid an annual salary of $425,000 which may be reviewed and increased by the compensation committee. In addition, the employment agreement provides that Mr. Annas is also eligible to receive performance (cash) bonuses and equity awards and will participate in the benefit programs that are provided to our employees and other executives as well as the Corporation’s Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan, which is filed as Exhibit 10.3 to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 and is incorporated into this item by reference.


Mr. Annas may terminate his employment at any time upon 90 days’ written notice to the Corporation. The Corporation may terminate Mr. Annas’ employment for Cause, as defined in the employment agreement, at any time. If Mr. Annas terminates for Good Reason, as defined in the employment agreement, (for example, a material diminution in his responsibilities or a reduction in his base salary, or a requirement to relocate his office outside the five (5) county area of the Corporation: Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, Delaware or Philadelphia) or is terminated by the Corporation without Cause, before or after a change in control, he is entitled to receive a lump sum equal to 300% of his base salary and performance bonus opportunity in effect as well as the replacement cost of any other benefits, including but not limited to medical, disability and life insurance. In the event of a change in control, payments to Mr. Annas will be reduced such that no portion of the payments will not be deductible under Code Section 280G. Under the employment agreement, Mr. Annas is subject to noncompetition and nonsolicitation provisions that apply during the term of the employment agreement and for a period of one year following termination of employment.


The foregoing description of the employment agreement is a summary and does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the employment agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this report and is incorporated into this item by reference.


Item 7.01                                           Regulation FD Disclosure.


The Corporation has posted to its website a slide presentation which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated into this Item 7.01 by reference.

These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that are subject to change based on various important factors (some of which, in whole or in part, are beyond the Corporation’s control).
