Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

On August 30, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Electric Last Mile Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”) issued equity incentive awards to a number of the Company’s key employees under the Company’s 2020 Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). Among the employees who received awards were the following named executive officers of the Company: the Chief Executive Officer and President (the principal executive officer) of the Company, James Taylor; the Chief Financial Officer (the principal financial officer) of the Company, Albert Li; and the Executive Chairman of the Company, Jason Luo.

 

Mr. Taylor received a grant of 3,300,000 restricted stock units, Mr. Li received a grant of 600,000 restricted stock units, and Mr. Luo received a grant of 6,000,000 restricted stock units (collectively, the “Earnout RSUs”). Fifty percent (50%) of the Earnout RSUs will vest if the closing price per share of the Company’s common stock equals or exceeds $14.00 for any twenty trading days in any thirty consecutive day trading period during the thirty-six month period following June 25, 2021 (the “Closing Date”), the closing date of the Company’s business combination contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated December 10, 2020, by and among the Company and the other parties named therein (the “Merger Agreement”), and 50% of the Earnout RSUs will vest if the closing price per share of the Company’s common stock equals or exceeds $16.00 for any twenty trading days in any thirty consecutive day trading period during the thirty-six month period following the Closing Date. These awards are consistent with the Merger Agreement and the Company’s intention to make such awards previously disclosed on page 167 of the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 9, 2021, except that Mr. Taylor’s grant was increased to 3,300,000 restricted stock units from the 3,000,000 restricted stock units originally disclosed. If the employment with the Company of Mr. Taylor, Mr. Li, or Mr. Luo is terminated for any reason, all of such officer’s Earnout RSUs that have not vested as of the date of such termination will be forfeited as of the date of such termination. In addition, upon a change in control (as defined in the Plan) of the Company, any Earnout RSUs that have not yet vested, or for which the applicable closing price has been met or exceeded but for which shares have not yet been issued, will be deemed earned and vested and settled by the issuance of one share per earned Earnout RSU immediately prior to the consummation of the change in control.

 

The description of the Earnout RSUs granted to Mr. Taylor, Mr. Li, and Mr. Luo is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Plan, which is included as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference, and by reference to the Form of Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement (Earnout Shares) previously approved by the Board, which is included as Exhibit 10.2 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

In addition to the Earnout RSUs, Mr. Taylor received a grant of 250,000 time-vesting restricted stock units and 250,000 performance-vesting restricted stock units, Mr. Li received a grant of 50,000 time-vesting restricted stock units and 50,000 performance-vesting restricted stock units, and Mr. Luo received a grant of 250,000 time-vesting restricted stock units and 250,000 performance-vesting restricted stock units. The time-vesting restricted stock units will vest as follows: 33.3% will vest on each of January 2, 2022, January 2, 2023, and January 2, 2024, provided that the officer receiving such grant continues to be employed with the Company on each of such vesting dates. The performance-vesting restricted stock units are subject to the achievement of two equally weighted performance goals relating to financial and operational milestones. Upon affirmation by the Board that one or both of the performance goals have been met, one-third of the total restricted stock units that are eligible for vesting will vest, and an additional one-third of the total restricted stock units that are eligible for vesting will vest on each of the two subsequent anniversaries of such affirmation. If the employment with the Company of Mr. Taylor, Mr. Li, or Mr. Luo is terminated for any reason, all of such officer’s time-vesting and performance-vesting restricted stock units that have not become earned and vested as of the date of such termination will be forfeited as of the date of such termination. In addition, if the performance period applicable to the performance-vesting restricted stock units ends without the applicable performance goals having been achieved, such performance-vesting restricted stock units will be forfeited as of the last day of such performance period. Further, upon a change in control (as defined in the Plan) of the Company, any time-vesting and performance-vesting restricted stock units that have not yet become earned or vested will be deemed earned and vested and settled by the issuance of one share per earned restricted stock unit immediately prior to the consummation of the change in control.

 

The description of the time-vesting and performance-vesting restricted stock units granted to Mr. Taylor, Mr. Li, and Mr. Luo is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Plan, which is included as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference, and by reference to the Form of Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement (Time & Performance Vesting) filed as Exhibit 10.3 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

(Time & Performance Vesting)

 

THIS RESTRICTED STOCK UNIT AWARD AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”) is made and entered into as of ____________, 20___ (the “Grant Date”), by and between Electric Last Mile Solutions, Inc. (f/k/a Forum Merger III Corporation), a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and the employee of the Company, or one of its affiliates, whose signature is set forth on the signature page hereof (the “Participant”). This Agreement shall be effective as of the Grant Date but shall be contingent on the Participant accepting this Agreement.

 

W I T N E S S E T H:

 

WHEREAS, the Company has adopted the Electric Last Mile Solutions, Inc. 2020 Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), which permits the Company to issue incentive awards to certain of its or its affiliates’ key personnel; and

 

WHEREAS, the Participant is an employee of the Company or one of its affiliates, to whom the Company wishes to provide with the opportunity to receive a grant of restricted stock units (the “RSUs”); and

 

WHEREAS, the Company desires to grant the Participant RSUs under the Plan representing the Participant’s right to receive a specified number of shares of Common Stock if the Participant remains in employment until the applicable vesting date and certain performance goals are achieved.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and of the covenants and agreements herein set forth, the parties hereby mutually covenant and agree as follows:

 

1. Award of RSUs. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Company hereby awards the Participant time vesting RSUs relating to ______ shares of Common Stock (the “Time Vesting RSUs”) and performance vesting RSUs relating to _______ shares of Common Stock (the “Performance Vesting RSUs”).

 

2. Earning and Vesting.

 

(a) Time Vesting RSUs. Subject to Section 4, ________% of the total Time Vesting RSUs shall vest on each of _____________, provided Participant continues to be employed with the Company or one of its affiliates on each of such vesting dates.

 

(b) Performance Vesting RSUs. Subject to Section 4, the percentage of the Performance Vesting RSUs indicated in the table below will be deemed eligible for vesting (the “Eligible Performance Vesting RSUs”) if the performance goal indicated is achieved within the applicable performance period, as thereafter affirmed by the Board no later than ___________, as it shall determine in its sole and absolute discretion. [_______ of the total Eligible Performance Vesting RSUs shall vest on the date of the Board affirmation and on each of the ___________ subsequent anniversaries of such affirmation, provided Participant continues to be employed with the Company or one of its affiliates on the applicable vesting date]:

 

Percentage of RSUs Earned        Performance Goal          Performance Period

 

 

3. Settlement. As soon as reasonably practicable (but no more than two and one-half (2½) months) after each vesting date, as is determined by the Company in its sole and absolute discretion, the Company will issue to the Participant a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of RSUs that were deemed vested as a result of such date and/or event.

 

 

1 

 

 

4. Termination of Employment or Lapse of Performance Period. If the Participant’s employment with the Company and its affiliates is terminated for any reason, then all RSUs that have not become earned and vested as of the date of termination shall be forfeited as of the date on which such termination occurs. In addition, if the performance period applicable to Performance Vesting RSUs ends without the applicable performance goals having been achieved, as determined by the Board, in its sole discretion, such Performance Vesting RSUs will be forfeited as of the last day of such performance period.

 

5. No Rights as a Stockholder; Dividend Equivalents. The Participant shall not have any rights of a stockholder of the Company with respect to the shares of Common Stock underlying the RSUs (including, without limitation, any voting rights, or any right to dividends), until the shares have been issued hereunder.

 

6. Tax Withholding. As a condition of receiving this award of RSUs, the Participant agrees to pay to the Company, upon demand, such amount as may be requested by the Company for the purpose of satisfying its liability to withhold federal, state, or local income or other taxes due by reason of the grant, vesting or settlement of, or by reason of any other event relating to, the RSUs. If the Participant does not make such payment, then the Company or its affiliate may withhold such taxes from other amounts owed to the Participant or may choose to satisfy such withholding obligations by withholding a number of shares of Common Stock otherwise issuable hereunder having a Fair Market Value on the date the tax obligation arises equal to the amount to be withheld; provided, however, that the amount to be withheld may not exceed the total maximum statutory tax rates associated with the transaction to the extent needed for the Company to avoid adverse accounting treatment; and provided, further, that, in the event the Company cannot for any reason withhold shares to satisfy such withholding obligations, the Participant agrees to pay to the Company upon demand such amount as may be requested by the Company for the purpose of satisfying such withholding obligations, and the Company may withhold any amounts necessary to satisfy its or its affiliates’ withholding obligations from other amounts owed to the Participant. The Committee may, in its sole discretion, permit net settlement.

 

7. No Right to Employment or Service; Clawback/Forfeiture/Recoupment of Awards for Breach of Contract. Nothing in this Agreement shall confer upon the Participant any right to continue in the employment or service of the Company or any affiliate or interfere with or limit in any way the right of the Company or an affiliate to terminate the Participant’s employment or service at any time. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if, after the Participant’s employment or service is terminated for any reason, the Participant breaches any material provision of any applicable confidentiality, non-compete, non-solicit, general release, covenant not-to-sue or other similar agreement with the Company or any affiliate, then the Participant will forfeit any compensation, gain or other value realized on the vesting or settlement of any award granted under this Agreement or the sale or other transfer of any award granted under this Agreement and must promptly repay such amounts to the Company.

 

8. Interpretation by Committee. The Participant agrees that any dispute or disagreement which may arise in connection with this Agreement shall be resolved by the Committee, in its sole discretion, and that any interpretation by the Committee of the terms of this Agreement or the Plan and any determination made by the Committee under this Agreement or the Plan may be made in the sole discretion of the Committee and shall be final, binding, and conclusive. Any such determination need not be uniform and may be made differently among Participants awarded restricted stock units.

 

9. Transferability. The Participant may not transfer any interest in the RSUs other than under the Participant’s will or as required by the laws of descent and distribution. The RSUs also may not be pledged, attached, or otherwise encumbered. Any purported assignment, alienation, sale, transfer, pledge, attachment, or encumbrance of the RSUs in violation of the terms of this Agreement shall be null and void and unenforceable against the Company or its successors. In addition, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Participant agrees and acknowledges with respect to any shares of Common Stock issued hereunder that have not been registered under the Securities Act: (a) he or she will not sell or otherwise dispose of such shares except pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws, or in a transaction which, in the opinion of counsel for the Company, is exempt from such registration, and (b) a legend will be placed on the certificates for the shares to such effect.
