As previously announced, Andreas W. Mattes stepped down as Chief Executive Officer and President of Diebold Nixdorf, Incorporated (the 'Company') on December 13, 2017.

Also, as previously announced, the Board appointed two Company executives, Christopher A.

On January 31, 2018, in connection with these appointments, the Board approved monthly stipends to Mr. Chapman and to Mr. Wunram in the amount of $10,000 each, effective as of December 13, 2017, to be paid each month during their tenure in this interim position.
In addition, on January 31, 2018, the Board determined that, if Mr. Chapman's employment is terminated other than for cause or if he leaves the Company's employ for good reason during the two years after the Company hires a new chief executive officer, then he will be deemed to have met certain age and continuous service requirements necessary for the continued or accelerated vesting for such awards in accordance with the terms of the applicable award agreements. Awards granted prior to 2017 will not be subject to such treatment. If Mr. Chapman remains employed through the two-year period, these rights terminate.
