New Employment Agreement with Matthew D. Rosen

 

On November 7, 2018, the Company entered into a new employment agreement with Matthew D. Rosen, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board (the “Employment Agreement”). The Employment Agreement, which is effective as of November 6, 2018, replaces the Company’s existing employment agreement with Mr. Rosen dated November 5, 2015.

 

The Employment Agreement has an initial term that ends on October 31, 2021; however, the initial term shall automatically extend for an additional two year period unless the Company or Mr. Rosen provides the other with written notice of its/his intent to terminate the Employment Agreement no less than ninety (90) days prior to the expiration of the initial term. Under the terms of the Employment Agreement, effective December 31, 2018, Mr. Rosen’s base salary will be increased to $1,000,000 per year, subject to annual reviews and increases at the discretion of the Board. The Employment Agreement also provides that Mr. Rosen will be eligible for an annual bonus or incentive compensation ranging from 50% and up to 200% of his base salary, based upon the achievement of corporate and individual performance targets determined by the Board. In addition, Mr. Rosen will receive a one-time special cash bonus in the amount of $2,383,333.28, subject to applicable withholdings, paid in six installments specified in the Employment Agreement.

 

Within five (5) business days of the execution of the Employment Agreement, the Company has agreed to grant Mr. Rosen 3,961,934 shares of common stock of which shares 657,682 are vested on the date of grant and the remaining 3,304,249 shares vest in equal quarterly installments over 2.5 years from the effective date of the Employment Agreement (the “Restricted Shares”). In the event of a change of control of the Company, a termination of Mr. Rosen’s employment without cause, a departure by Mr. Rosen for good reason (each as described in the Employment Agreement), or a non-renewal of Mr. Rosen’s employment, the Restricted Shares and any other equity-based grants held by Mr. Rosen automatically vest in full. Further, the Employment Agreement provides that if the Company sells all or substantially all of its consolidated assets or it sells more than 50% of the equity securities of the Company during the term of the Employment Agreement, Mr. Rosen will be entitled to a one-time cash bonus equal to 3% of the aggregate consideration paid/distributed to stockholders of the Company.

 

If Mr. Rosen is terminated due to his disability or death, he (or his estate) will receive his base pay for the remaining term of the Employment Agreement, with a minimum of six months of pay, as well as any other accrued obligations owed to Mr. Rosen. If the Company terminates Mr. Rosen without cause or if Mr. Rosen voluntary departs for good reason (each as described in the Employment Agreement), the Company is obligated to pay Mr. Rosen any amounts that have accrued and are owed to him, as well as a cash payment, in twelve (12) equal monthly installments after the date of termination, of (a) 200% of (i) his base salary and (ii) the highest annual bonus paid to Mr. Rosen during the three preceding years, and (b) any pro-rata bonus that would have otherwise been payable to Mr. Rosen had he completed the full year of employment and as if the performance metrics, if any, were met.

 

The Employment Agreement further provides that Mr. Rosen is entitled to participate in all benefit plans provided to key executives of the Company. The Employment Agreement provides that Mr. Rosen may not engage in or profit from a competitive business (as defined in the Employment Agreement) while the Employment Agreement is in effect.   In the event that the Employment Agreement is not renewed following expiration of the initial term or any extension, the non-compete clause will apply for a period of twelve months following Mr. Rosen’s departure only if the Company elects to pay severance to Mr. Rosen in an amount equivalent to that which he would be entitled as if he was terminated without Cause.
