RadioShack will pay retention bonuses to executives

Bloomberg NewsMarch 6, 2014 

RadioShack, which announced plans Tuesday to shut 1,100 stores after a plunge in sales, agreed to pay retention bonuses to its top executives, saying their skills are critical to the company’s comeback plan.

Chief Executive Officer Joe Magnacca will get a $500,000 payment, while other executives will receive $187,500 to $275,000, the Fort Worth, Texas-based company said Wednesday in a filing. Magnacca also will be eligible for a bonus of as much as $600,000 next year if he meets performance targets.

The decision was made “after giving due consideration of the skills and talent deemed critical to the company’s business turnaround efforts currently underway, the difficult business environment and the competition for skilled, talented employees,” the company said. To receive the bonuses, the executives must stay at the company through March 1, 2015.

The announcement comes a day after RadioShack posted its eighth straight quarterly loss and a 20 percent decline in revenue.
