As previously reported on a Current Report on Form 8-K filed on November 13, 2018 (the “Prior 8-K”), the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Wingstop Inc. (the “Company”) approved a severance plan for certain senior officers of the Company (the “Executive Severance Plan”). On January 2, 2019, Michael Skipworth, Larry Kruguer, Stacy Peterson, and other senior officers of the Company (the “Senior Officers”) became participants in the Executive Severance Plan upon their delivery to the Company of an executed Participation Agreement, pursuant to which they agreed to be bound by the terms and conditions of the Executive Severance Plan. Pursuant to their respective Participation Agreements, the Senior Officers also agreed to terminate any existing employment agreement between them and the Company, effective immediately, and the terms of the Executive Severance Plan and respective Participation Agreements supersede the terms of any employment agreement so terminated.
The Prior 8-K and the description of the terms of the Executive Severance Plan and Participation Agreement set forth therein are incorporated herein by reference. Additionally, the Executive Severance Plan and form of Participation Agreement will be filed as exhibits to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 29, 2018 (the “Annual Report”), and the description thereof set forth and incorporated herein is qualified by and subject to, in all respects, the terms of the Executive Severance Plan and form of Participation Agreement to be filed as exhibits to the Annual Report.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
