Auctus Fund Second Amendment
On October 28, 2021, the Company and Auctus Fund, LLC entered a Second Amendment to the Senior Secured Promissory Note, Warrants and Securities Purchase Agreement dated March 11, 2011 (the “Auctus Second Amendment”). The Auctus Second Amendment is fully described in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2021 and is attached to this Form 10-Q as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Adam Levy Executive Employment Agreement
On November 4, 2021, we entered into an employment agreement with Adam Levy, the Company’s current Chief Executive Officer and President. Mr. Levy has served as our Chief Executive Officer and President since September 10, 2019 without an employment agreement. Mr. Levy has also served as a member of our Board of Directors since September 9, 2021. Mr. Levy was approved be all of the disinterested members of the Board of Directors pursuant to the Delaware General Corporation Law. Mr. Levy’s agreement will become effective upon our common stock being initially listed for trading on any tier of the NASDAQ Stock Market, the New York Stock Exchange, the NYSE American, or any other national securities exchange, which would occur if this offering is successful (the “Initial Public Offering”). The term of the agreement is for one year from the effective date.
If Mr. Levy’s agreement becomes effective, Mr. Levy would be paid a base salary of $300,000 per year. Additionally, Mr. Levy would be eligible for cash bonuses as follows: (i) $33,000 in the event the we achieve net income for two consecutive fiscal calendar quarters for the period which is one year after the Initial Public Offering (the “Net Income Bonus”) and (ii) $67,000 in the event the average closing price of our common stock over any consecutive three month period during the first year subsequent to the Initial Public Offering equals or exceeds one hundred and fifty percent (150%) the price per share at which our common stock is sold at the Initial Public Offering (the “Trading Price Bonus”). Both the Net Income Bonus and the Trading Price Bonus may be earned if both thresholds are achieved or either the Net Income Bonus or the Trading Price Bonus may be earned if only one of the thresholds is achieved. The Net Income Bonus and the Trading Price Bonus shall survive the termination of Mr. Levy so long as the termination is not for cause (as defined in the agreement) and the applicable thresholds are achieved within the one year period after the Initial Public Offering.
Upon effectiveness of the agreement, Mr. Levy will also receive a grant of shares of our common stock equal to $50,000 divided by the per share price at which our common stock is sold at the Initial Public Offering (the “Equity Grant”). The Equity Grant would vest in twelve equal monthly installments (subject to any rounding adjustments) during the term of the agreement with the first installment vesting on the effective date. Mr. Levy would also be eligible to receive, from time to time, additional equity awards under our existing equity incentive plan, or any other equity incentive plan we may adopt in the future, and the terms and conditions of such awards, if any,
would be determined by our Board of Directors or Compensation Committee, in their discretion. Mr. Levy would also be eligible to participate in any benefit plan or program we adopt.
Pursuant to Mr. Levy’s agreement, if Mr. Levy’s employment is terminated upon his disability, Mr. Levy would be entitled to receive, in addition to other unpaid amounts owed to him (e.g., for base salary, accrued personal time and business expenses): (i) his then base salary for a period of three months (in accordance with our general payroll policy) commencing on the first payroll period following the fifteenth day after termination of employment and (ii) substantially similar coverage under our then-current medical, health and vision insurance coverage for a period of three months. Additionally, if Mr. Levy’s employment is terminated for disability, the vesting of any option grants would continue to vest pursuant to the schedule and terms previously established during the three month severance period. Subsequent to the three month severance period the vesting of any option grants would immediately cease. The severance benefits described above are collectively referred to in this Form 10-Q as the “Severance Benefits”.
Pursuant to Mr. Levy’s agreement and during the initial six months of the term of the agreement, if Mr. Levy resigns for good reason (as defined in the agreement) or is terminated by us without cause (as defined in the agreement), Mr. Levy would be entitled to receive (i) his then base salary (in accordance with our general payroll policy) commencing on the first payroll period following the fifteenth day after termination of employment and (ii) substantially similar coverage under our then-current medical, health and vision insurance coverage for a period of one year.
Pursuant to Mr. Levy’s agreement and subsequent to the initial six months of the term of the agreement, if Mr. Levy resigns for good reason or is terminated by us without cause or if we fail to enter into a new employment agreement with Mr. Levy at the end of term of the agreement after bona fide and good faith negotiation between us and Mr. Levy, Mr. Levy would be entitled to receive Severance Benefits for a period of one year less one month for each month (on a pro-rated basis) such termination or resignation occurs subsequent to the initial six month anniversary of the term (the “Adjusted Severance Period”). For example, in the event Mr. Levy is terminated without cause or resigns for good reason at the end of the eight month anniversary of the effective date, Mr. Levy would be entitled to an Adjusted Severance Period of ten months.
If we terminate Mr. Levy’s employment for cause or employment terminates as a result of Mr. Levy’s resignation (without good reason) or death, Mr. Levy would only be entitled to any salary earned but unpaid prior to termination, all accrued but unused personal time, and any business expenses that were incurred but not reimbursed as of the date of the termination. Vesting of any option grants would immediately cease.
Mr. Levy’s agreement also contains certain non-competition, non-solicitation, confidentiality, and assignment of inventions provisions whereby Mr. Levy is subject to non-competition and non-solicitation restrictions for a period of one year and two years following termination of his employment respectively.
