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

(d)     On February 6, 2018, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Amkor Technology, Inc. (the “Company”) expanded the Board to twelve members and appointed Doug Alexander and MaryFrances McCourt directors of the Company effective on that date. The Board has not appointed Mr. Alexander or Ms. McCourt to any committees of the Board.

Upon their appointment to the Board, the new directors each became entitled to an annual retainer of $50,000, and will be paid $2,000 for each regularly scheduled Board or committee meeting they attend, and $1,000 for each telephonic Board or committee meeting they attend. The new directors will also be entitled to reimbursement from the Company for travel and other reasonable out-of-pocket expenses they incur in connection with attending Board and committee meetings. In addition, upon their appointment to the Board, each new director received an option to purchase 4,657 shares of the Company’s common stock and 985 shares of the Company’s restricted stock, pursuant to pro-rated automatic grants under the Company’s Amended and Restated 2007 Equity Incentive Plan. Upon re-election to the Board by the Company’s stockholders, non-employee directors automatically receive an option to purchase 20,000 shares of the Company’s common stock and restricted stock having a fair market value on the grant date of $40,000. Under the applicable terms of the Amended and Restated 2007 Equity Incentive Plan, vesting for options and the lapse of restrictions for restricted stock occurs on the earlier of the first anniversary of the date of grant or the date of the first annual meeting of the stockholders of the Company immediately following the date of grant, in either case, subject to the non-employee director’s continued service through the applicable date.

There are no arrangements or understandings between either new director and any other persons pursuant to which he or she was selected as a director, and neither has any direct or indirect material interest in any transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

Additional information regarding these appointments is contained in the press release attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

(e)     On February 7, 2018, the Compensation Committee of the Board approved the following base salary increases for the Company's principal financial officer and a named executive officer: Megan Faust, Corporate Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, from $315,000, to $375,000; Giel Rutten, Executive Vice President, Advanced Products, from $450,000 to $485,000.
