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

On  February 18, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Anterix Inc. (the “Company”), based on the recommendation of the Board’s Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, increased the size of the full Board to nine directors and appointed Mahvash Yazdi as a member of the Board, effective immediately. The Board determined that Ms. Yazdi qualifies as an independent director pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and the listing standards of the Nasdaq Stock Market.  The Board will also appoint Ms. Yazdi to the audit and nominating and corporate governance committees.  The Company issued a press release announcing the appointment of Ms. Yazdi. A copy of that press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference in this Item 5.02.

The Company’s non-employee director compensation program provides for an annual cash retainer of $65,000 for service on the Board, payable in four equal quarterly installments, and on a pro-rata basis for service during any portion of a fiscal quarter. Additionally, the Company’s non-employee director compensation program provides for an annual grant of Restricted Stock Awards, with a grant date fair market value equal to approximately $90,000, to be issued immediately following each annual meeting of stockholders, and on a pro-rata basis for service during any portion of a year.  Under this program, Ms. Yazdi will receive a pro-rata payment of the annual cash retainer and receive a pro-rata Restricted Stock Award for shares of the Company’s common stock based on her service through the date of the Company’s 2021 annual meeting of stockholders (the “Restricted Stock Award”). The Restricted Stock Award will vest on the date of the Company’s 2021 annual meeting of stockholders, subject to accelerated vesting in the event of a change of control. The Restricted Stock Award will be subject to the terms and conditions of the Company’s 2014 Stock Plan and a Restricted Stock Award Agreement in the form previously approved by the Board for issuance to the Company’s non-employee directors. The Company’s form of Non-Employee Director Restricted Stock Award Agreement was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 16, 2016 as Exhibit 10.9 to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The Company also entered into an Indemnification Agreement with Ms. Yazdi. The Indemnification Agreement provides for indemnification and advancement of litigation and other expenses to Ms. Yazdi to the fullest extent permitted by law for claims relating to her service to the Company or its subsidiaries. The Company’s form of indemnification agreement was filed with the SEC on December 19, 2014 as Exhibit 10.9 to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

There are no family relationships between Ms. Yazdi and any of the Company’s directors or executive officers and Ms. Yazdi does not have any direct or indirect material interest in any transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
