Sagar Kurada Employment Agreement

On March 25, 2021, the Company entered into a new employment agreement (the “Kurada Agreement”) with Sagar Kurada, its Chief Financial Officer. This new agreement continues Mr. Kurada’s service to the Company as its Chief Financial Officer, and supersedes Mr. Kurada’s prior employment agreement with Eos Energy Storage, LLC, dated June 1, 2020. The Kurada Agreement has a three-year term with automatic 12 month extensions thereafter unless either party provides the other with 60 days’ prior written notice that any extension shall not take effect. The Kurada Agreement provides for the following material terms:

Mr. Kurada will receive an annual base salary, which may be increased but not decreased, equal to $400,000.

Mr. Kurada will be eligible to receive an annual performance bonus with a target annual bonus opportunity of 60% of his annual base salary, in accordance with a bonus plan established and approved by the Board.

Mr. Kurada will be eligible to receive an award of 200,000 restricted stock units (“RSUs”) under the Company’s 2020 Incentive Plan, as amended from time to time (the “Plan”) and the Company’s form Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement for employees. Mr. Kurada’s RSUs will vest as follows: 25,000 RSUs will vest on January 3, 2022, an additional 75,000 RSUs will vest on January 2, 2023, and the remaining 100,000 RSUs will vest on January 1, 2024, subject to Mr. Kurada’s continued employment through each applicable vesting date. Mr. Kurada’s RSUs will fully vest upon a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan) or in the event that Mr. Kurada’s employment is terminated by the Company without Cause or he resigns for Good Reason (as each such term is defined in the Kurada Agreement).

Mr. Kurada will be eligible to participate in any defined contribution plan, any insurance program and any medical and other health benefit plan sponsored by the Company for its employees. Mr. Kurada is entitled to four weeks of paid personal time off per calendar year. The Company will also reimburse Mr. Kurada for his reasonable business, travel, lodging, meal and other business expenses pursuant to the Company’s expense policy applicable to its senior level executives.

In the event that Mr. Kurada’s employment is terminated by the Company without Cause or he resigns for Good Reason (as each such term is defined in the Kurada Agreement), he will be entitled to receive, in addition to his accrued rights and subject to an execution of a release of claims against the Company, (i) continued payment of his annual base salary for eighteen months, (ii) if the applicable performance targets have been achieved under the applicable bonus plan, a pro-rated annual bonus for the year of termination, based on the amount Mr. Kurada would have otherwise received through the termination date, and (iii) to the extent not yet vested, full vesting of his then-outstanding equity awards.

Mr. Kurada is subject to indefinite confidentiality and mutual non-disparagement covenants as well as non-competition and non-solicitation covenants during employment and for twelve months after any termination of employment.
