Readers Say
It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

It's well balanced information that is useful on a daily basis. I'm very satisfied with the Executive Edition. I start each day with SES and a big cup of coffee!

Details about Bernard’s severance package

These details were just released this morning. Bernard will receive $106,726 to serve as a consultant for a year. In addition, he will receive severance pay of $2.8 million. This agreement replaces the employment contract I wrote about yesterday.


Here are more details from the public document filed by Quiksilver:


"Pursuant to the separation and transition agreement, Mr. Mariette's resignation was effective February 11, 2008 (the "Separation Date"), however, he will continue to provide strategic advisory services to the Company's Chief Executive Officer and General Counsel for a 12-month period following the Separation Date on an as-requested-basis in connection with the Company's "Quiksilver", "Roxy" and "DC" brands and operations. The Company will pay him a monthly retainer of $60,000 per month for the first six months of the consulting period, and $106,666 for the final six months of the consulting period, to compensate him for such strategic advisory services.


"The separation and transition agreement provides that Mr. Mariette will receive (i) severance pay totaling $2,850,000 consisting of (A) a lump sum payment of $1,425,000 in August 2008 and (B) $237,500 per month beginning September 2008 and continuing through February 2009, and (ii) payment of COBRA premiums for a period following his resignation.


"In addition, when Mr. Mariette ceases to provide strategic advisory services to the Company, all of his stock options will accelerate and vest and he will have up to one year (90 days with respect to certain options) to exercise such stock options after which they will expire. All of Mr. Mariette's unvested restricted stock expired and was surrendered to the Company as of February 11, 2008. The separation and transition agreement also includes a waiver and release of claims by Mr. Mariette."
