Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On April 20, 2018, the Human Resources and Nominating Committee of the Board of Directors of MoneyGram International, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the Company’s entry into a tax equalization agreement (the “Agreement”) with Grant Lines, the Company’s Chief Revenue Officer, in connection with Mr. Lines’s permanent relocation from Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Dallas, Texas, effective May 1, 2018. The Agreement was approved in connection with Mr. Lines’s relocation to the United States to help defray the costs of the United States income taxes expected to be incurred in connection with his and his family’s relocation. The Agreement provides for a tax equalization payment of $513,000 in respect of United States income tax liability relating to Company income earned while located in Dubai that Mr. Lines is expected to incur in connection with his relocation (the “Tax Equalization Payment”). The Tax Equalization Payment will be paid in two quarterly installments. If Mr. Lines voluntarily terminates his employment or is terminated by the Company for cause during the two-year period beginning on May 1, 2018, he will be obligated to repay any portion of the Tax Equalization Payment he previously received.

The foregoing description of the Agreement is a summary, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Agreement, a copy of which will be included as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.


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 hereunto duly authorized.
