Item 5.02.

On June 18, 2021, Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into the Fifth Amendment to the CEO Employment Agreement (“Amendment”), with Selwyn Joffe, Chairman, CEO and President.

Under the Amendment, 1) the Term of employment was extended one year from July 1, 2023 to July 1, 2024, 2) Mr. Joffe’s base salary was set at $828,256, and 3) the Annual Incentive Plan target bonus was set at 120% of Executive’s salary.

On June 18, 2021, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Company approved a performance vesting restricted stock unit award agreement (the “PSU Agreement”) pursuant to which performance-vesting restricted stock units (“PSUs”) were granted pursuant to its Fourth Amended and Restated 2010 Incentive Award Plan, as amended from time to time (the “Plan”) to the following named executive officers of the Company:  Selwyn Joffe, David Lee, Douglas Schooner, Richard Mochulsky and Juliet Stone.
 
Pursuant to the PSU Agreement, each participant’s PSUs will be eligible to vest with respect to 0% - 150% of the target number of PSUs set forth in the table below (“Target PSUs”), based on the Company’s achievement of adjusted EBITDA, net sales, and relative TSR goals (weighted at 50%, 30%, and 20%, respectively) (collectively, the “Performance Goals”).  The performance period for the adjusted EBITDA and net sales goals begins on April 1, 2023 and ends on March 31, 2024; the performance period for the relative TSR goal, begins on June 18, 2021 and ends on June 18, 2024.  The Target PSU Award for each executive officer is set forth in the table below:
 
Name and Title
 
Number of Target PSUs
Selwyn Joffe, Chairman, President and CEO

Douglas Schooner, Chief Manufacturing Officer
 
4,244
Richard Mochulsky, SVP, Sales and Marketing   3,431
Juliet Stone, VP, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary   4,097
 
Any PSUs that vest in accordance with the Performance Goals will vest on the measurement date of the performance goals, subject to the executive’s continued employment.  Any PSUs that remain unvested as of the date on which an executive’s employment terminates, and any PSUs that do not vest as a result of the failure to achieve the Performance Goals, will be forfeited.
 
The foregoing description of the PSUs and the PSU Agreement is not complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by the complete terms of the PSU Unit Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
