Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

On April 26, 2021, following the annual meeting of stockholders referred to below, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Seaboard Corporation (the “Company”) appointed Frances B. Shifman as a new director of the Board, effective immediately. Ms. Shifman’s appointment fills the vacancy resulting from Edward I. Shifman Jr.’s decision to not stand for re-election at the Company’s 2021 annual meeting as previously disclosed in the Company’s Proxy Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 12, 2021. The Board has also determined to appoint Ms. Shifman to the Audit Committee of the Board at the time of her appointment. Prior to serving on the Board, Ms. Shifman worked for more than 25 years in various real estate development business endeavors and served on the boards of directors of various non-profit organizations.

Ms. Shifman is expected to participate in the Company’s standard non-employee director compensation arrangements, pursuant to which she will receive a quarterly cash retainer of $20,000 and an additional cash payment of $2,500 per quarter for her service on the Audit Committee.

There are no arrangements or understandings between Ms. Shifman and any other person pursuant to which Ms. Shifman was appointed as a director. Ms. Shifman is not a party to any current or proposed transaction with the Company for which disclosure is required under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K. There is no material plan, contract, or other arrangement to which Ms. Shifman is a party other than as described above.
