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


In its Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 5, 2021 (the “Initial Report”), Medifast, Inc. (the “Company”) reported the departure of Stephen K. Johnson, the Company’s Chief Accounting Officer, effective August 5, 2021. This Current Report on Form 8-K/A amends the Initial Report to provide information about the compensatory arrangements related to the departure of Mr. Johnson. This Current Report on Form 8-K/A should be read in conjunction with the Initial Report.


On August 26, 2021, in connection with his departure from the Company, Mr. Johnson and the Company entered into a separation agreement (the “Separation Agreement”) pursuant to which Mr. Johnson will receive certain severance and other benefits. The Separation Agreement provides that Mr. Johnson will receive (i) a lump sum cash severance payment in the amount of $106,962, which represents twenty-four weeks of salary; (ii) continued benefits under COBRA until February 28, 2022; and (iii) up to six months of outplacement assistance. The Severance Agreement includes standard non-competition, non-disclosure and confidentiality provisions and a non-disparagement provision and a release. As previously disclosed, Mr. Johnson’s departure was not the result of any disagreement with the Company nor any issue related to the Company’s financial statements or accounting practices.


The foregoing description of the Separation Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Separation Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
