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

On January 25, 2013, the Board of Directors of Art’s-Way Manufacturing Co., Inc. (the “Company”) approved an increase in the base salary payable to Carrie Majeski, the Company’s President, Chief Executive Officer, and interim Chief Financial Officer, pursuant to Ms. Majeski’s Employment Agreement with the Company, effective December 21, 2011, as amended January 26, 2012. Ms. Majeski’s base salary was previously $145,000 per year and will increase to $150,000 per year effective immediately. Ms. Majeski was also granted 2,500 shares of restricted stock pursuant to the terms of the Company’s 2011 Equity Incentive Plan (“the Plan”). The risks of forfeiture for the restricted stock award lapse as to 500 shares annually on March 1 of each year, beginning on March 1, 2013 and ending on March 1, 2017, provided that Ms. Majeski remains employed by the Company on such dates. The award is governed by the Plan and the Company’s form of restricted stock award agreement. The Board of Directors also acknowledged that Ms. Majeski will serve as the principal accounting officer of the Company following the effective date of the resignation of Dean Droegemueller, which will be upon the Company’s filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K, or earlier upon mutual agreement of the parties.
Also on January 25, 2013, Fred Krahmer provided the Company with notice of his intent not to stand for reelection to the Board of Directors of the Company at the 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.  Mr. Krahmer’s decision not to pursue reelection was not due to a disagreement with the Company. Mr. Krahmer will continue to serve as a director of the Company until the expiration of his term at the 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.



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.
