The Employment Agreements, which are effective January 1, 2021, specify the position, compensation, benefits, term of employment and other terms and conditions relating to each NEO’s employment. The Employment Agreements:

supersede prior employment agreements with each NEO that expired December 31, 2020;

provide that each NEO is eligible to receive equity awards under the Company’s Omnibus Incentive Plan;
provide for payments to each NEO in the event of disability and to each NEO’s beneficiaries in the event of death;
condition receipt of severance payments upon execution of a general release in a form approved by the Company;
provide for no severance payments if the NEO is terminated for Cause (as defined in the Employment Agreements) or voluntarily terminates employment when such termination is not a Constructive Termination (as defined in the Employment Agreements); and
include customary provisions related to non-solicitation, non-competition and confidentiality.

The Employment Agreements provide that the minimum base salary and annual bonus target for Mr. Stevenson are $925,000; for Messrs. Graham and Roberts are $480,000; and for Mr. Graves are $475,000.

Under the terms of the Employment Agreements, if an NEO’s employment is terminated by the Company without Cause or by the NEO due to a Constructive Termination and the termination occurs outside the Change in Control Protection Period (as defined in the Employment Agreement), the NEO will be paid the following:

(1) the greater of the then current base salary or the minimum base salary due under the remaining term of the Employment Agreement for Messrs. Graham, Graves and Roberts and the greater of two times the then current base salary or the minimum base salary due under the remaining term of the Employment Agreement for Mr. Stevenson;

(3) Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (“COBRA”) premium reimbursements for up to 18 months.

In cases where an NEO’s employment is terminated by the Company without Cause or by the NEO due to a Constructive Termination and the termination occurs during the Change-in-Control Protection Period, the NEO will be paid the following:

(1) the greater of 1.5 times the then current base salary or the minimum base salary due under the remaining term of the Employment Agreement for Messrs. Graham, Graves and Roberts and two times the then current base salary or the minimum base salary due under the remaining term of the Employment Agreement for Mr. Stevenson;




(2) 1.5 times the target annual bonus for the year in which the termination occurs for Messrs. Graham, Graves and Roberts and two times the target annual bonus for the year in which the termination occurs for Mr. Stevenson; and

(3) COBRA premium reimbursements for up to 18 months.
