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

Effective January 1, 2009, Logitech Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Logitech International S.A., adopted the Logitech Inc. Deferred Compensation Plan. The Deferred Compensation Plan replaces the Logitech Inc. Management Deferred Compensation Plan.

The Deferred Compensation Plan is an unfunded and unsecured deferred compensation arrangement that is designed to allow the participants to defer a specified percentage of their base salary (up to 80%), commissions and/or bonuses (up to 90%) without regard to the maximum deferral limitations imposed on 401(k) plans by the U.S. Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”). The Deferred Compensation Plan is designed to comply with Code Section 409A. As required by applicable law, participation in the Plan is limited to a group of Logitech Inc.’s management employees, which group includes each of Logitech International S.A.’s executive officers.

Amounts deferred by each participant pursuant to the Deferred Compensation Plan are credited to a bookkeeping account maintained on behalf of that participant. Amounts credited to each participant under the Deferred Compensation Plan are periodically adjusted for earnings and/or losses at a rate that is equal to one or more of the measurement funds selected by the Logitech Inc. 401(k) Plan Committee and elected by a participant.

Distributions are made in accordance with elections filed by participants at the time of their initial deferrals and distributions generally are expected to occur after a participant’s separation of service, or in some cases at specified future distribution dates.

The foregoing description of the Deferred Compensation Plan is qualified in its entirety by reference to the provisions of the Plan, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
