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

On November 25, 2013, Jeffrey A. Beck announced his resignation as Chief Operating Officer of iRobot Corporation (the “Company”), effective immediately. Mr. Beck is expected to remain employed by the Company through December 27, 2013 to assist with the transition.

In connection with the termination of his employment at the end of the transition period, Mr. Beck executed a separation agreement with the Company dated November 25, 2013 pursuant to which he will be entitled to receive severance benefits as provided in the Amended and Restated Executive Agreement by and between the Company and Mr. Beck, the form of which is attached as an exhibit to the Company’s Report on Form 8-K filed May 8, 2009, and partial acceleration of vesting of unvested equity grants issued to Mr. Beck pursuant to the Company’s 2005 Stock Option and Incentive Plan. In addition, under this separation agreement, the Company will make a cash payment to Mr. Beck in an amount equivalent to what he would have received as a bonus for fiscal 2013 under the Company’s Senior Executive Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Bonus Plan”), had his employment continued until such payments are made to other Company executives under the Bonus Plan. The Company will make this payment when fiscal 2013 bonuses are paid to other Company executives under the Bonus Plan.
