Abercrombie Rejects Shareholder Call; Extends CEO Contract

Monday, 09 Dec 2013 10:56 AM

Struggling teen apparel retailer Abercrombie & Fitch Co. said it will extend Chief Executive Mike Jeffries' contract by a year, days after a shareholder urged the company to replace him.

Abercrombie shares were down 2 percent at $34.15 in early trade on Monday.

The company said the new agreement has a more simplified, performance-based compensation structure that is designed to align incentives closely with the success of the company.

Jeffries' current contract expires in February.

Abercrombie said Leslee Herro will retire from her position as executive vice president of merchandise planning and inventory management in the spring of 2014.

The company also said it plans to hire brand presidents for its Abercrombie & Fitch, abercrombie kids and Hollister brands to help with its succession planning.
