               WHEREAS, the parties desire, by this Agreement, to set forth the terms and conditions of the employment relationship between the Company and the Executive.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and covenants herein contained, the parties hereto agree as follows:

 

1.     Employment Term.     Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Company hereby employs the Executive and the Executive hereby accepts such employment for the three-year period (the “Employment Term”) commencing July 10, 2017 (the “Effective Date”) and ending July 10, 2020, unless the Employment Term is extended by mutual written agreement of the parties or terminated pursuant to Section [6] hereof.

 

2.     Duties and Responsibilities; Board Observer.

 

(a)     Duties and Responsibilities. During the Employment Term, the Executive shall serve as the Chief Executive Officer of the Company and such other senior executive positions consistent therewith as the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) may determine. The Executive shall report to, and be subject to, the direction of the Board with such duties and responsibilities as are commensurate with his title and position. The Executive agrees to devote all his attention and time during normal business hours to the business and affairs of the Company and to use his reasonable best efforts to perform faithfully and efficiently the duties and responsibilities of his positions and to accomplish the goals and objectives of the Company as may be established by the Board. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Executive may engage in the following activities (and shall be entitled to retain all economic benefits thereof including fees paid in connection therewith) as long as they do not interfere in any respect with the performance of the Executive’s duties and responsibilities hereunder and, with respect to item (i) below, that such activity is pre-approved by the Board: (i) serve on corporate, civic, religious, educational and/or charitable boards or committees, provided that the Executive shall not serve on any board or committee of any corporation or other business which competes with the Company’s business; and (ii) make investments in businesses or enterprises and manage his personal investments; provided that with respect to such activities the Executive shall comply with any business conduct and ethics policy applicable to employees of the Company.

 

(b)     Board Observer. During the Employment Term, the Executive shall be invited to attend all meetings of the Board of Directors as a non-voting observer; provided, however, in the sole discretion of the Chairman of the Board, the Executive shall be excused from portions of meeting where matters are addressed that relate to or involve the Executive and, further provided, that the Executive shall not be entitled to attend executive sessions of the Board among the independent members of the Board. In the sole discretion of the Board, at such time as it deems appropriate, the Board may consider the appointment of the Executive to the Board.

 

 

 

 

3.      Compensation.

 

(a)     Base Compensation. In payment for services to be rendered by the Executive hereunder, the Executive shall be entitled to base compensation, payable in cash, less any withholding required by law, at the rate of $300,000 per annum, payable in accordance with the Company’s normal payroll policy as in effect from time to time during the Employment Term (“Base Compensation”).

 

(b)     Bonus. For each calendar year during the Employment Term, the Executive shall be entitled to receive $400,000 in bonus compensation (or a pro rata portion thereof for a partial calendar year of employment) based upon the Company’s achievement of performance benchmarks periodically established by the Compensation Committee of the Board in consultation with the Executive (the “Bonus Compensation”). Bonus compensation, if any, shall be payable annually in arrears fifty (50%) percent in cash and fifty (50%) percent in shares of the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”) valued at the average closing price of the Common Stock on the NYSE MKT, or such other market or exchange on which such shares are then traded, during the first fifteen (15) trading days of December of each calendar year during the Employment Term. With respect to any Bonus Compensation earned hereunder that is payable in cash, such cash amount shall be determined and paid on or before March 31 of the following year. With respect to any Bonus Compensation earned hereunder that is payable in shares of Common Stock (“Bonus Shares”), in addition to such Bonus Shares, the Executive shall be entitled to receive stock options to acquire twice the number of Bonus Shares earned pursuant to a non-qualified stock option grant agreement under the Company’s 2011 Equity Compensation Plan, or such successor plan in effect at such time (the “Plan”) in the Company’s standard form, which shall provide for a five-year term and shall vest in three equal annual installments on each of the first, second and third anniversary of the grant date, subject to continued employment on such vesting date (“Bonus Options”). The exercise price of the Bonus Options shall be the fair market value of a share of Common Stock on the date of grant (or 110% of such value if at the time of grant the Executive beneficially own ten (10%) or more of the Common Stock), subject to adjustment as provided for in the Plan. The cash portion of any bonus earned by Executive hereunder in any calendar year during the Employment Term will be paid on or before January 15 of the successive calendar year. Any Bonus Shares earned by Executive hereunder in any calendar year during the Employment Term shall be issued to the Executive, or his estate, if applicable, within fifteen (15) business days after the expiration of the Employment Term.

 

(c)     Restricted Securities. The Executive acknowledges that all shares of Common Stock issuable to him hereunder shall be acquired for investment purposes and not for distribution thereof and will not be sold or otherwise disposed of in violation of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.

 

(d)     Options. In addition to the Bonus Options issuable hereunder, if any, on the Effective Date, the Company shall grant to the Executive non-qualified stock options under the Plan to purchase 921,942 shares of Common Stock at price per share equal to the greater of (a) $2.00, or (b) the fair market value of a share of Common Stock on the Effective Date. Such options shall have a five-year term and shall vest in three equal annual installments on each of the first, second and third anniversary of the Effective Date, subject to continued employment on such vesting date. All other terms and provision of the grant shall be governed by the Plan and the Company’s standard form of stock option agreement.

(e)     Section 409A of the CodeNotwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if any payment of money or other benefits due to the Executive hereunder could cause the application of an accelerated or additional tax or penalty under Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”), such payment or other benefits will be deferred if deferral will make such payment or other benefits compliant under Section 409A of the Code (for instance, if the Executive is a "specified employee" within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code and the Executive receives a payment or benefit constituting deferred compensation hereunder at or a specified time following a separation from service, such payment or benefit shall not be delivered to the Executive until the earlier of the Executive’s death or six months and one day following the Executive’s separation from service), or otherwise any such payment or other benefits that would not be in compliance with Section 409A of the Code so as to avoid accelerated or additional taxation or penalties thereunder will be restructured but not reduced, to the extent possible, in a manner, reasonably determined by the Company, that does not cause such an accelerated or additional tax or penalty.  This Agreement is intended to comply with Section 409A of the Code and will be interpreted accordingly and will be automatically modified to the extent necessary to so comply.  With regard to any payment or benefit that constitutes a deferral of compensation subject to Code Section 409A, references under this Agreement to the Executive’s termination of employment shall be deemed to refer to the date upon which the Executive has experienced a "separation from service" within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code.  Each payment made under this Agreement constitutes a "separate payment” for purposes of Section 409A of the Code.  It is intended that each such separate payment under Paragraph 3(b), to the maximum extent possible, be deemed to constitute a short-term deferral under Treasury Regulation §1.409A-1(b)(4) and, to the extent not excluded as a short-term deferral, to the maximum extent possible and applying this rule to the earliest in time of such payments, be deemed to constitute amounts payable under the "two-years/two-times" exclusion from being a deferral of compensation under Treasury Regulation § 1.409A-1(b)(9)(iii).  To the extent any reimbursements or in-kind benefits due to the Executive under this Agreement constitute "deferred compensation" under Section 409A of the Code, any such reimbursement or in-kind benefits shall be paid to the Executive in a manner consistent with Treasury Regulation  § l.409A-3(i)(l)(iv).  The foregoing and other provisions of this Agreement notwithstanding, the Executive will be responsible for all taxes (including excise taxes and tax penalties) owed by the Executive relating to the Executive’s compensation hereunder or otherwise paid by the Company or any of its affiliates, and the Company and its affiliates shall not and does not indemnify the Executive for any such taxes owed by him.

 

4.      Expenses; Relocation.

 

(a)     Business Expenses. During the Employment Term, the Executive shall be entitled to receive prompt reimbursement for all reasonable expenses incurred by him in performing services hereunder, provided that such expenses are incurred and accounted for in accordance with the policies and procedures established by the Company.

 

(b)     Relocation Expenses. Provided that the Executive remain employed by the Company through the six (6) month anniversary of the Effective Date, the Company will reimburse the Executive, on a non-accountable basis, for $75,000 of relocation expense. Upon written request by the Executive, the Company shall coordinate the movement of the Executive’s personal belongings, at the Company’s sole expense, from the Executive’s current Colorado residence to New Jersey through a mutually acceptable commercial moving company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the Executive’s employment with the Company is terminated within the first six months of the Employment Term either, (a) without “Cause”, (b) for “Good Reason”, or (c) upon the death of the Executive, the foregoing payment shall become immediately due and payable provided, however, that Executive has incurred relocation expense prior to such occurrence.

 

5.      Other Benefits. The Executive shall be entitled to the following additional benefits:

 

(a)     three weeks of paid vacation during each year of the Employment Term;

 

(b)     paid holidays and personal days in accordance with the Company’s standard policies applicable to its full time employees;

 

3

 

 

(c)     the Executive and his eligible dependents shall have the right to participate in any retirement plans (qualified and non-qualified), pension, insurance, health, disability or other benefit plan or program that has been or is hereafter adopted by the Company (or in which the Company participates), according to the terms of such plan or program, on terms no less favorable than the most favorable terms granted to senior executives of the Company; and

 

(d)     a car allowance in the amount of $1,200 per month.

 

6.      Termination.

 

(a)     Disability. The Company shall have the right to terminate the employment of the Executive under this Agreement for disability in the event the Executive suffers an injury, or physical or mental illness or incapacity of such character as to substantially disable him from performing his duties hereunder for a period of more than one hundred eighty (180) consecutive days upon the Company giving at last thirty (30) days written notice of termination; provided, however, that (i) through the effective date of such termination, the Executive shall be entitled to receipt of his compensation as provided for in the Agreement, and (ii) if the Executive is eligible to receive disability payments pursuant to a disability insurance policy paid for by the Company, the Executive shall assign such benefits to the Company for all periods as to which he is receiving payment under this Agreement.

 

(b)     Death. This Agreement shall terminate upon the death of the Executive.

 

(c)     Cause. The Company may terminate this Agreement at any time for “Cause” if the Executive: (i) is convicted of criminal charges or violating such rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission as may result in criminal action or material fines against the Company. (ii) materially breaches any term of this Agreement; or (iii) willfully engages in misconduct that is materially injurious to the Company, monetarily or otherwise; provided, however, in the case or (ii) or (iii) that the Company shall not terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 6(c) unless the Company shall first have delivered to the Executive a notice which specifically identifies such breach or misconduct, specifies reasonable corrective action and the Executive shall not have cured the breach or corrected the breach or misconduct within fifteen (15) days after receipt of such notice.

 

(d)     Good Reason. The Executive may terminate his employment for “Good Reason” on written notice to the Company setting forth the basis for such termination if the Company shall not have corrected the basis for such Good Reason termination within fifteen (15) days after receipt of such notice. Good Reason shall be deemed to exist if:

 

 

(i)

The Executive is assigned, without his express written consent, any duties inconsistent with his positions, duties, responsibilities, authority and status with the Company as of the date of this Agreement, or a change in the Executive’s reporting responsibilities or titles as in effect as of the date of this Agreement; or

 

 

(ii)

The Executive’s compensation is reduced; or

 

 

(iii)

Any purchaser or purchasers of substantially all of the business or assets of the Company does not agree, at or prior to the closing of any such transaction, by agreement in form and substance satisfactory to the Executive to perform this Agreement in the same manner and to the same extent that the Company would be required to perform if no sale was consummated.

The Executive further represents and warrants that he is not obligated under any contract (including, but not limited to, licenses, covenants or commitments of any nature) or other agreement or subject to any judgment, decree or order of any court or administrative agency which would conflict with his obligation to use his best efforts to perform his duties hereunder or which would conflict with the Company’s business and operations as presently conducted or proposed to be conducted. Neither the execution nor delivery of this Agreement, nor the carrying on of the Company’s business as officer and employee by the Executive will conflict with or result in a breach of the terms, conditions or provisions of or constitute a default under any contract, covenant or instrument to which the Executive is currently a party.

 

(b)     Simultaneous with the execution of this Agreement, the Executive and the Company shall enter into the Covenant Agreement in the form of Exhibit A to this Agreement. The Executive agrees and acknowledges that the execution and delivery of the Covenant Agreement is a material inducement to the Company to enter into this Agreement.

 

9.        Indemnification.

 

 (a) General. The Company agrees that if the Executive is made a party or is threatened to be made a party to any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (a “Proceeding”), by reason of the fact that he is or was a director or officer of the Company, is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, member, employee or agent of another corporation or of a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, including, without limitation, service with respect to employee benefit plans, whether or not the basis of such Proceeding is alleged action in an official capacity as a director, officer, member, employee or agent while serving as a director, officer, member, employee or agent, the Executive shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Company to the fullest extent authorized by applicable law (in accordance with the certificate of incorporation and/or bylaws of the Company), as the same exists or may hereafter be amended, against all Expenses (as defined below) incurred or suffered by the Executive in connection therewith, and such indemnification shall continue as to the Executive even if the Executive has ceased to be an officer, director or agent, or is no longer employed by the Company and shall inure to the benefit of his heirs, executors and administrators.

 

(b) Expenses. As used in this Section 9, the term “Expenses” shall include, without limitation, damages, losses, judgments, liabilities, fines, penalties, excise taxes, settlements and costs, attorneys’ fees, accountants’ fees, and disbursements and costs of attachment or similar bonds, investigations, and any expenses of establishing a right to indemnification under this Agreement.

 

6

 

 

(c) Enforcement. If a claim or request under this Agreement is not paid by the Company, or on their behalf, within fifteen days after a written claim or request has been received by the Company, the Executive may at any time thereafter bring suit against the Company to recover the unpaid amount of the claim or request and if successful in whole or in part, the non-prevailing party in any such action shall be entitled to receive the reasonable attorney fees, costs and expenses of prosecuting or defending such suit. The burden of proving that the Executive is not entitled to indemnification for any reason shall be upon the Company.

 

(d) Subrogation. In the event of payment under this Agreement, the Company shall be subrogated to the extent of such payment to all of the rights of recovery of the Executive.

 

(e) Partial Indemnification.

(f) Advances of Expenses. Expenses incurred by the Executive in connection with any Proceeding shall be paid by the Company in advance upon request of the Executive that the Company pay such Expenses.

 

(g) Notice of Claim. The Executive shall give to the Company notice of any claim made against his for which indemnity will or could be sought under this Agreement. In addition, the Executive shall give the Company such information and cooperation as it may reasonably require and as shall be within the Executive’s power and at such times and places as are convenient for the Executive.

 

(h) Defense of Claim. With respect to any Proceeding as to which the Executive notifies the Company of the commencement thereof: (i) the Company will be entitled to participate therein at its own expense; and (ii) except as otherwise provided below, to the extent that it may wish, the Company jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly notified will be entitled to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Executive. The Company shall not be entitled to assume the defense of any action, suit or proceeding brought against, by or on behalf of the Company or as to which the Executive shall have reasonably concluded that there may be a conflict of interest between the Company and the Executive in the conduct of the defense of such action.

 

The Company shall not be liable to indemnify the Executive under this Agreement for any amounts paid in settlement of any action or claim effected without its written consent.

Neither the Company nor the Executive shall unreasonably withhold or delay their consent to any proposed settlement.

 

(i) Non-exclusivity. The right to indemnification and the payment of expenses incurred in defending a Proceeding in advance of its final disposition conferred in this Section 9 shall not be exclusive of any other right which the Executive may have or hereafter may acquire under any statute, provision of the certificate of incorporation, by laws, or other governing documents of the Company, agreement, vote of stockholders, members or disinterested directors or otherwise.

 

(j) Directors and Officers Liability Policy. The Company agrees to use reasonable efforts to maintain directors and officers liability insurance covering the Executive in a reasonable and adequate amount determined by the Board.

(d) Power and Authority. The Company represents and warrants to the Executive that it has the requisite corporate power to enter into this Agreement and perform the terms hereof; that the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by it has been duly authorized by all appropriate corporate action; and that this Agreement represents the valid and legally binding obligation of the Company and is enforceable against it in accordance with its terms.
