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

On March 4, 2019, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Sonic Foundry, Inc. (the "Company") appointed Michael Norregaard to serve as Chief Operating Officer.

Effective March 4, 2019, the Company entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Norregaard as Chief Operating Officer. The employment agreement shall continue until terminated pursuant to the terms thereof. Pursuant to the terms of the employment agreement, Mr. Norregaard will receive an annual minimum base salary of $231,750 per year subject to increase at the discretion of the Board. Mr. Norregaard may also receive a performance bonus at the disrection of the Board.

In the event Mr. Norregaard’s employment is terminated without cause, as defined in the employment agreement, or in the event his employment is constructively terminated, Mr. Norregaard shall be entitled to receive in equal bi-weekly installments over a twelve-month period, compensation equal to the highest cash compensation (including base compensation and incentive/bonus) paid to Mr. Norregaard in any of the last three fiscal years immediately prior to termination. In the event of a Change of Control, as defined in the employment agreement, Mr. Norregaard is entitled to terminate the agreement, in which event he shall be entitled to receive, within thirty days of such termination, an amount equal to the highest cash compensation (including base compensation and incentive/bonus) paid to Mr. Norregaard in any of the last three fiscal years immediately prior to his termination. In any of the above events, (i) all of Mr. Norregaard’s unvested stock options and stock grants shall vest immediately upon termination and Mr. Norregaard will have one year from the date of termination to exercise any such options and (ii) Mr. Norregaard shall receive





health insurance continuation as required by COBRA, salary accrued to the date of termination, and any accrued vacation pay. Mr. Norregaard has further agreed not to disclose the Company’s proprietary information, and, until one year following the termination of his employment agreement, not to compete with the Company or solicit the Company’s employees. The foregoing description of Mr. Norregaard’s employment agreement is qualified in all respects by reference to the full text of such employment agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report and incorporated by references in this Item 5.02.
