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

On September 14, 2020, the Board of Directors of SunPower Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), voted to rescind the previously announced temporary reductions in the base salaries of certain of its executive officers, effective as of September 24, 2020, based on the achievement of certain financial milestones. The fully reinstated base salaries in effect from and after September 24, 2020 are as set forth in the table below.

Executive Officer Base Salary ($)
Thomas H. Werner, President and Chief Executive Officer
600,000
Manavendra S. Sial, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer
435,000
Douglas J. Richards, Executive Vice President, Administration
380,000
Kenneth L. Mahaffey, Executive Vice President and General Counsel
335,000


As previously reported, the temporary salary reductions, which initially took effect on March 25, 2020, were approved at management’s request as part of the Company’s strategy to address financial and operational impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Additional temporary salary reductions, which initially took effect on April 20, 2020, were rescinded on July 27, 2020 upon the achievement of other financial milestones, as previously disclosed.

These actions are part of the Company’s thoughtful management of its business throughout the pandemic, including through reduced work weeks and employee pay reductions, which were reinstated this past summer, as previously announced.
