Item 5.02.    Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
(e) On May 9, 2023, at the 2023 annual meeting of shareholders (the "Annual Meeting") of Cummins Inc. (the "Company"), the Company's shareholders approved the Cummins Inc. Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the "ESPP"), as amended, to increase the potential discount on stock purchased by employees from 15% to 20% and to increase the annual limit on the Company's aggregate matching contributions under the ESPP to $30 million from $7.5 million. The increase in the annual limit is necessary to accommodate an increase in the rate of the Company’s matching contributions and increased global participation from the Company’s eligible employees.
The Company cannot currently determine the benefits, if any, to be received under the ESPP in the future by the named executive officers of the Company.
The ESPP, as amended, is described in detail in the Company's definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 27, 2023. The full text of the ESPP, as amended, appears as Annex B to that definitive proxy statement. The description of the ESPP amendment set forth above does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such materials.
