Item 8.01Other Events.
On September 9, 2018, CBS Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a separation and settlement agreement and releases (the “Separation Agreement”) with Leslie Moonves, pursuant to which Mr. Moonves resigned as a director and as Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. In October 2018, the Company contributed $120 million to a grantor trust pursuant to the Separation Agreement. On December 17, 2018, the CBS Board of Directors announced that it had determined that there were grounds to terminate Mr. Moonves’ employment for cause under his employment agreement with the Company. Any dispute related to the CBS Board of Directors’ determination was subject to binding arbitration as set forth in the Separation Agreement. On January 16, 2019, Mr. Moonves commenced a binding arbitration proceeding with respect to this matter and the related CBS Board of Directors investigation. The disputes between Mr. Moonves and CBS have now been resolved, and on May 14, 2021, the parties dismissed the arbitration proceeding. The assets of the grantor trust will revert to the Company in their entirety.

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.
