David L. Bere, President and Chief Strategy Officer of Dollar General Corporation (the “Company”), will cease employment with the Company effective as of the close of business on January 29, 2010. Mr. Bere will receive payments and benefits as set forth in his employment agreement with the Company, as amended by a separation agreement with the Company entered into on January 11, 2010, summarized below, subject to his execution of a release in the form attached as an exhibit to the separation agreement:


·

A lump sum amount representing two times his (i) base salary at the annual rate in effect on January 29, 2010 and (ii) target bonus in effect on January 29, 2010;

·

A lump sum amount equal to the actual bonus that he would have been due, if any, under the Company’s bonus plan in respect of the fiscal year ending January 29, 2010 had he remained employed with the Company through the date on which any bonus plan payments are made, calculated and paid at the same time as bonus payments are calculated for the Company’s senior executives; and

·

A lump sum amount representing two times the Company’s annual contribution for his participation in the Company’s medical, dental and vision benefits program.


The separation agreement also amends the terms of the Company’s management stockholder’s agreement with Mr. Bere (the “MSA”) so that the Company’s call rights under the MSA are terminated effective as of January 11, 2010.  In addition, the Company agreed to waive the transfer restrictions set forth in the MSA upon the expiration of the underwriter lock-up period in connection with the Company’s recent initial public offering.


The foregoing description of the separation agreement is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the agreement which is attached as Exhibit 99.
