On February 1, 2019, Spanish Broadcasting System, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that Mr. Jose Antonio Garcia had ceased serving in his role as Senior Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Administrative Officer and Secretary of the Company effective as of January 28, 2019.  On that date the Company also announced that it intended to enter into a separation agreement with Mr. Garcia on a later date documenting the terms of Mr. Garcia's transition.

On May 31, 2019, the Company entered into a Separation Agreement (the “Separation Agreement”) with Mr. Garcia. Pursuant to the Separation Agreement, effective May 31, 2019 (the “Separation Date”), Mr. Garcia resigned as an officer and employee of the Company, but Mr. Garcia continues to serve as a director of the Company.

Under the Separation Agreement, Mr. Garcia will receive his earned base salary and expenses through the Separation Date, plus $1,750,000 in cash severance.  The cash severance amount represents two times Mr. Garcia’s base salary (that he is entitled to receive under his employment agreement with the Company, dated as of August 4, 2008, as amended as of April 19, 2011 (the “Employment Agreement”), plus an additional $700,000, and the cash severance will be paid out over a 12 month period.  Mr. Garcia’s vested stock options will also remain exercisable following the Separation Date, until the expiration of the applicable option term.  Mr. Garcia will also be entitled to continue to participate in the Company’s group health plan for six months following the Separation Date at the Company’s expense.  Thereafter, Mr. Garcia may elect COBRA continuation coverage (subject to eligibility and timely election), and if he elects such coverage, the Company will pay a cash lump sum amount to Mr. Garcia equivalent to 18 months of monthly COBRA premiums for the coverage elected by Mr. Garcia.  

In connection with the receipt of the severance benefits described above, Mr. Garcia has entered into a customary release of claims in favor of the Company.  The Separation Agreement also includes mutual non-disparagement provisions and provides that Mr. Garcia will continue to abide by the restrictive covenants in the Employment Agreement (including employee and customer non-solicitation provisions and non-competition provisions with respect to the Company’s Spanish broadcasting businesses, programs or services).
