Abercrombie & Fitch’s board agreed to make governance changes to resolve a lawsuit objecting to its awarding longtime Chief Executive Officer Michael Jeffries more than $140 million of compensation since 2007. The negotiated settlement, which requires court approval and includes no monetary payment to shareholders, was disclosed on Friday, less than an hour after the underlying lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court in Columbus, Ohio. Court papers showed that Abercrombie agreed to appoint a chief ethics and compliance officer, tie executive pay more closely to performance, bolster anti-corruption compliance training, and limit access to nonpublic data to Jeffries’ partner and other third parties, among other provisions.
