TABLE OF CONTENTS
  




ITEM 5.02 DEPARTURE OF DIRECTORS OR CERTAIN OFFICERS; ELECTION OF DIRECTORS; APPOINTMENT OF CERTAIN OFFICERS; COMPENSATORY ARRANGEMENTS OF CERTAIN OFFICERS.

(e) On June 11, 2019, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the grant of long-term performance share awards (the “Long-Term Awards”) to executive officers and certain other employees of the Company effective on July 3, 2019 (the “Grant Date”). The purpose of the Long-Term Awards is to create additional alignment between executive compensation and create stockholder value, ensure continued focus on key organizational initiatives, and to provide financial motivation to and to increase retention of senior leaders. The Long-Term Awards are governed by, and were granted pursuant to, the Company’s Amended and Restated 2012 Stock and Incentive Plan (the “2012 Plan”) and the related performance share award agreement (the “Award Agreement”).

The Long-Term Awards will vest on April 3, 2022 if, and only if, pre-established performance goals are achieved during the 2020 fiscal year period (the “Performance Period”). The total number of shares that may be deemed earned after the end of the Performance Period will be based on the attainment of metrics relating to earnings before taxes, sales within key categories, digital sales, and private brand sales. For a recipient to earn and be paid his or her Long-Term Award, the recipient also must remain an employee of the Company until the end of the vesting period, except in certain specified circumstances set forth in the Award Agreement.

The target value of the Long-Term Awards granted to the Company’s named executive officers as set forth in the Company’s most recently-filed proxy statement on May 1, 2019, are as follows (with potential payout ranging from 0 - 200% of the target value):

* The actual target number of performance shares to be granted will be determined based on the closing price per share of the Company's common stock on the Grant Date.
The foregoing description of the Long-Term Awards does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Award Agreement, a copy of which is filed hereto as Exhibit 99.1, and the 2012 Plan, each of which is incorporated herein by reference.
