On June 22, 2014, Keith R. Stewart resigned as a member of the Company's board of directors and as Chief Executive Officer of the Company. In conjunction with Mr. Stewart's resignation and separation agreement, as well as other executive terminations made subsequent to June 22, 2014, the Company recorded charges to income of $5,520,000 in fiscal 2014, relating primarily to the following: severance payments which Mr. Stewart is entitled to receive in accordance with the terms of his employment agreement; severance payments related to the termination of our Chief Operating and Chief Merchandising Officers; and other direct costs associated with the Company's 2014 executive transition. Following Mr. Stewart's resignation, the Company's board of directors appointed Mr. Mark Bozek as Chief Executive Officer of the Company effective June 22, 2014. The Company filed an 8-K on June 25, 2014 disclosing the specific terms of the resignation, separation agreement and new appointment of its chief executive officer.
