Effective as of December 31, 2018, the Board of Directors extended to December 31, 2019 the Change in Control Agreements (the “Agreements”), which the Registrant entered into on December 31, 2017 with both of its executive officers. The Agreements with each of the executive officers provide that if a Change of Control (as defined in the Agreements) occurs and the participant is not offered substantially equivalent employment with the successor corporation or the participant’s employment is terminated without Cause (as defined in the Agreements) during the three month period prior to the Change of Control or the 24 month period following the Change of Control, then 100% of such participant’s unvested options will be fully vested and the restrictions on his restricted shares will lapse. The Agreements also provide for severance payments of 500% of base salary and target bonus in such event. The Agreements terminate on December 31, 2019, with the provision that if a Change of Control occurs prior to the termination date, the obligations of the Agreements will remain in effect until they are satisfied or have expired.
The foregoing description of the Agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the copies of the Agreements, a form of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.01 and which is incorporated by reference herein.
