Item 5.02.
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
 
5.02(d) As previously reported, on December 14, 2016, Paul Halpern provided written notification to SP Plus Corporation (the “Company”) that he was resigning as a director effective immediately. Mr. Halpern’s resignation was not the result of any disagreement with the Company related to its operations, policies or practices.

The Company completed the acquisition of Central Parking Corporation (“Central”) in October 2012 (the “Central Merger”). As a condition to the Agreement and Plan of Merger related to the Central Merger (“Merger Agreement”), the Company was required to appoint three individuals (the “Board Designees”), including Mr. Halpern, designated by an affiliate of Central on behalf of former stockholders of Central (the “Central Representative”). The Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) is contractually required to nominate the Board Designees for election to the Board, to recommend unanimously that the Company’s stockholders vote in favor of their election to the Board, and to solicit proxies in favor of the election of the Board Designees. In accordance with the Merger Agreement, the Central Representative has the right to designate Mr. Halpern’s replacement (“New Board Designee”).

Following a thorough vetting process, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee recommended the New Board Designee, Seth H. Hollander, to serve as a director until the 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. On January 12, 2017, the Board elected Mr. Hollander to serve as a director effective immediately until the 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. In connection with his election, Mr. Hollander has not yet been appointed to serve as a member of any Board committee.

Mr. Hollander, 40, served as a director of Central and its parent company from May 2007 through September 2012. He has served as a partner of Kohlberg & Co., LLC, a private investment firm, since January 2009, and as an associate at Kohlberg from July 2001 through December 2008. Mr. Hollander is a member of Kohlberg’s Investment Committee, and he also is a director of various privately held companies. The Board believes that Mr. Hollander’s experience in various service industries, including parking management and ground transportation, is a particularly important attribute for a director of the Company. He received his B.B.A. degree in 1999 from the University of Michigan.

Mr. Hollander, like the Company’s other non-employee directors, will be entitled to a pro rata portion of SP Plus common stock equal to approximately $85,000 on the date of grant and a pro rata portion a $60,000 annual cash retainer.

On December 15, 2016, we settled disputes involving the Central Merger with KCPC Holdings, Inc., which was the ultimate parent of Central with and among each of Kohlberg CPC Rep, L.L.C., KOCO Investors V, L.P., Kohlberg Offshore Investors V, L.P., Kohlberg Investors V, L.P., Kohlberg Partners V, L.P., and Kohlberg TE Investors V, L.P. (collectively, the “Kohlberg Entities”), and other former Central stockholders (the “Settlement”). Mr. Hollander is affiliated with the Kohlberg Entities.

The Merger Agreement provided that Central’s former stockholders were entitled to receive cash consideration in an amount equal to $27.0 million three years after closing, subject to indemnification obligations of Central’s former stockholders and other adjustments. Post-closing claims and disputes arose between the parties, including as to indemnification matters. Pursuant to the Settlement, the Company paid Central’s former stockholders $2.5 million in the aggregate (which effectively reduced the $27.0 million that would have been payable by the Company to Central’s former stockholders under the Merger Agreement by $24.5 million) to settle all outstanding matters between the parties related to the Central Merger. Pursuant to the Settlement, the parties fully released one another for claims relating to the Central Merger, and therefore the Company has no further obligation to pay any additional cash consideration to Central’s former stockholders.

The foregoing description of the Settlement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Settlement Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on
Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02.

A copy of the press release issued on January 17, 2017, regarding Mr. Hollander’s election is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02.

The arbitrators shall award attorneys’ fees to the prevailing Party, and shall have the discretion to make a full or partial award of attorneys’ fees based upon their determination of the extent to which a Party achieved the relief sought in its pleadings or prevailed with respect to the issues in controversy.

17. Severability . Every provision of this Agreement is intended to be severable, and, if any term or provision of this Agreement is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable for any reason whatsoever, such illegality, invalidity or unenforceability shall not affect the validity, legality or enforceability of the remainder of this Agreement, and the provision in question shall be modified as required to comply with the law while effectuating, to the greatest extent possible, the intent of the Parties as reflected in the original language.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                

SP Plus Corporation Elects Seth H. Hollander to Board of Directors

CHICAGO, Illinois - January 17, 2017 - SP Plus Corporation ( SP+ ) (Nasdaq:SP), a leading national provider of parking, ground transportation and related products and services to commercial, institutional and municipal clients throughout North America, today announced that Seth H. Hollander has been elected to serve on its Board of Directors, effective January 12, 2017, until the next annual meeting of stockholders in May.

Mr. Hollander’s election as director fills the vacancy left by Paul Halpern, who resigned from the Company’s Board of Directors on December 14, 2016.

Prior to the merger between the Company and Central Parking, Mr. Hollander served as a director of Central Parking Corporation and its parent company from May 2007 through September 2012. He has served as a partner of Kohlberg & Co., LLC, a private investment firm, since January 2009, and as an associate from July 2001 through December 2008. He is currently a member of Kohlberg’s Investment Committee, and he is also a director of various privately held companies. He received his B.B.A. in 1999 from the University of Michigan.

“Mr. Hollander’s experience in various service industries, including parking management and ground transportation, is a particularly important attribute for an SP+ director,” stated Karen M. Garrison, Chairman.

About SP Plus

The Company has more than 22,000 employees and operates approximately 3,700 facilities with 2.0 million parking spaces in hundreds of cities across North America, including parking-related and shuttle bus operations serving more than 60 airports.
