Item 1.01                                           Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On April 9, 2018, Immunomedics, Inc. (the “ Company ”), issued a press release announcing that the Company had appointed Robert Iannone as the Company’s Chief Medical Officer, Head of Research and Clinical Development, effective as of April 9, 2018.

 

The full text of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K.

 

Appointment of Chief Medical Officer, Head of Research and Clinical Development

 

On March 27, 2018, upon recommendation from the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors and approval by the Board of Directors, the Company entered into an Executive Employment Agreement (the “ Iannone Agreement ”) with Robert Iannone, pursuant to which Mr. Iannone will serve as the Company’s Chief Medical Officer, Head of Research and Clinical Development.

 

Mr. Iannone’s appointment as Chief Medical Officer, Head of Research and Clinical Development is effective as of April 9, 2018 (the “ Iannone Effective Date ”). The term of the Iannone Agreement is for two (2) years, and shall automatically renew for successive one (1) year periods thereafter, unless at least ninety (90) days prior to the end of any such period one party notifies the other in writing that they are exercising their option not to renew the Iannone Agreement. Mr. Iannone will receive an annual base salary of $460,000 and be eligible for an annual bonus, to be determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors, with a target of 45% of Mr. Iannone’s base salary for each applicable fiscal year. Mr. Iannone is entitled receive a sign-on cash bonus of $60,000, payable as soon as practicable after the Iannone Effective Date. Mr. Iannone will also receive reimbursement of up to $50,000 annually for commuting and housing expenses incurred commuting from Philadelphia, PA to the Company’s executive offices in Morris Plains, New Jersey.

 

On the Iannone Effective Date, Mr. Iannone was granted an incentive stock option (the “ Iannone ISO Agreement ”) to purchase 110,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, such option has a seven-year term and an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the Company’s common stock based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the Iannone Effective Date and is subject to the terms of the Iannone ISO Agreement. Such option will vest as to 25% of the shares underlying the option on the first anniversary of the Iannone Effective Date, and an additional 1/48th of the total number of shares underlying the option on the corresponding day of each month thereafter until the entire option has vested and become exercisable on the fourth anniversary of the Iannone Effective Date, in each case subject to Iannone’s continued employment on each such vesting date.

 

On the Iannone Effective Date, Mr. Iannone was also granted a nonqualified stock option (the “ Iannone NQSO Agreement ”) to purchase 70,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, such option has a seven-year term and an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the Company’s common stock based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the Iannone Effective Date and is subject to the terms of the Iannone NQSO Agreement. Such option will vest as to 25% of the shares underlying the option on the first anniversary of the Iannone Effective Date, and an additional 1/48th of the total number of shares underlying the option on the corresponding day of each month thereafter until the entire option has vested and become exercisable on the fourth anniversary of the Iannone Effective Date, in each case subject to Iannone’s continued employment on each such vesting date.

 

On the Iannone Effective Date, Mr. Iannone was also granted a second nonqualified stock option (the “ Iannone Performance NQSO Agreement ”) to purchase 140,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, such option will have a seven-year term and an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the Company’s common stock based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the Iannone Effective Date and is subject to the terms of the Iannone NQSO Agreement. Such option will vest on the same time-based schedule as the Iannone NQSO Agreement and based on the performance of the Company’s stock price.

 

In the event Mr. Iannone is terminated without Cause or resigns for Good Reason before a Change of Control (each as defined in the Iannone Agreement), Mr. Iannone will receive, provided that Mr. Iannone executes within twenty-one (21) days of his termination, does not revoke, and complies with the terms of, a written release that releases the Company from any and all claims with respect to all matters arising out of or related to Mr. Iannone’s employment by the Company and his termination thereof, severance consisting of: (i) two (2) months of his then-current base salary for each completed year of service, with a minimum of six (6) months base salary and a maximum of twelve (12) months base salary, (ii) his annual target cash bonus prorated based on the number of days actually worked in the fiscal year of his termination and subject to the satisfaction of applicable performance conditions, and (iii) continued health coverage for a period of between six (6) and twelve (12) months,  among other benefits and in each case subject to the terms and conditions of the Iannone Agreement.
