(the “April Form 8-K”) Mr. Torres Declet joined the Company as Chief Operating Officer and as a member of the board of directors on April 19, 2021. Mr. Torres Declet also currently serves as the President of Measure, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary. Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Torres Declet co-founded Measure Global and served as its President since 2014.

There are no family relationships among any of our directors or executive officers and Mr. Torres Declet.


The Compensation Committee of the board of directors will re-evaluate Mr. Torres Declet’s current employment terms and compensation and make a recommendation as to whether there will be any changes.
