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

(e) At the annual meeting of stockholders of Constant Contact, Inc. (the "Company") held on May 20, 2014 (the "2014 Annual Meeting"), the Company's stockholders approved the Company's Amended and Restated 2011 Stock Incentive Plan (the "Amended 2011 Plan"), which was adopted by the Board of Directors of the Company on April 11, 2014 subject to stockholder approval. The Amended 2011 Plan increases the number of shares of common stock authorized for issuance by 2,100,000 shares such that there will be 3,167,381 shares available for grant under the Amended 2011 Plan, less awards granted after April 1, 2014 (and counted at the new fungible ratio described below), plus any shares added to the Amended 2011 Plan from forfeiture, expiration or settlement of shares under prior grants, as described below. In addition, the Amended 2011 Plan:

adjusts the manner in which shares are counted as used under or returned to the Amended 2011 Plan; emphasizes that any accrued dividends or dividend equivalents with respect to performance-based restricted stock or restricted stock units will not be paid unless and until the applicable award is no longer subject to any restrictions on transfer or forfeitability; amends the type and amount of awards made, as well as the timing of future grants to non-employee directors; for future grants, removes certain minimum vesting requirements for restricted stock and restricted stock units; doubles the per person annual limit on awards for new employees; and extends the duration of the Amended 2011 Plan to the tenth anniversary of approval of the amendment, or May 20, 2024.

The amendments referred to above are described in greater detail in Proposal 2 in the Company's Proxy Statement for the 2014 Annual Meeting (the "Proxy Statement") filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 8, 2014, which description is incorporated herein by reference. The description of the Amended 2011 Plan contained herein and in the Proxy Statement are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended 2011 Plan filed as Exhibit 10.1 attached hereto and incorporated by reference herein.
