On October 12, 2018, the Company entered into an employment agreement (the “Employment Agreement”) with Jessica T.

She will continue to be entitled to participate in the benefit plans and programs generally provided by the Company to its executives.

In recognition of Ms. Graziano’s expanded role, the Compensation Committee approved a one-time award of restricted stock units (“RSUs”) in the amount of $500,000 under the Company’s Second Amended and Restated 2010 Long Term Incentive Plan, which will vest ratably in thirds on the first three anniversaries of grant date subject to her continued employment through each such date.

In the event that Ms. Graziano is terminated without “cause” or resigns for “good reason” (each as defined in the Employment Agreement), Ms. Graziano will be entitled to (i) accrued base salary through the date of termination, (ii) COBRA continuation coverage paid by the Company through the earlier of (a) 12 months following her date of termination and (b) the date Ms. Graziano becomes eligible for coverage under a third party’s group health plan, and (iii) 190% of her annual base salary as of the date of termination (to be paid in equal installments during the 12-month period following the termination date).

Ms. Graziano is subject to indefinite confidentiality and non-disparagement restrictions and 12-month post-termination non-competition and non-solicitation covenants.

The foregoing summary of Ms. Graziano’s employment agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to her employment agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated by reference herein in its entirety.
