On August 5, 2021, Medifast, Inc. (the “Company”) and Stephen K. Johnson, the Company’s Chief Accounting Officer, agreed that Mr. Johnson will depart from his position as Chief Accounting Officer and all other positions that he holds as an officer or employee of the Company, effective August 5, 2021.

In connection with Mr. Johnson’s departure, the Company has commenced a search for a permanent replacement. James P. Maloney, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, will serve as interim principal accounting officer as of the effective date of Mr. Johnson’s resignation. Mr. Maloney’s biographical information is set forth in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 15, 2021. There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Maloney and any other persons pursuant to which he will serve as the Company’s interim principal accounting officer. There is no family relationship between Mr. Maloney and any director, executive officer, or person nominated or chosen by the Company to become a director or executive officer at the Company. The Company has not entered into any transactions with Mr. Maloney that would require disclosure pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
