On November 5, 2019, the Company and Mr. Heasley entered into a Retirement and General Release Agreement (the “Agreement”) pursuant to which Mr. Heasley will continue to receive his current salary and benefits through December 31, 2019 and will be eligible for a 2019 cash bonus to the extent previously determined performance goals are achieved and taking into account Mr. Heasley’s performance in connection with the Company’s acquisition of Speedpay and investment in Mindgate Solutions. The Agreement also provides that:

  unvested stock options relating to 271,304 shares and 17,514 restricted stock units continue to vest as scheduled following December 31, 2019;

  performance share units (“PSUs”) relating to 263,497 shares will remain outstanding and Mr. Heasley will be eligible to earn and vest in a pro-rated number of PSUs based on the actual performance of the Company and the length of his service time during the applicable performance periods;

  PSUs relating to 108,820 shares will remain outstanding and continue to vest as scheduled following December 31, 2019 based on the actual performance of the Company; and

  outstanding PSUs relating to 33,518 shares and unvested restricted stock units relating to 35,026 shares will be forfeited for no consideration.

Pursuant to a consulting agreement entered into between the Company and Mr. Heasley concurrently herewith, and which forms part of the Agreement, Mr. Heasley will be paid $180,000 for consulting during the period from January 1, 2020 through March 31, 2020. The Agreement contains customary confidentiality, nonsolicitation, release and other provisions, and Mr. Heasley has waived severance pay and benefits under his existing employment agreement. The Agreement is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Report.

While Mr. Heasley will remain President and Chief Executive Officer through December 31, 2019, Craig Saks, the Company’s Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, will be delegated responsibility for the oversight of the Company’s day-to-day operations in such capacity as would otherwise be performed by the position of Chief Executive Officer of the Company, and Mr. Heasley’s direct reports will report to Mr. Saks until a successor to the Chief Executive Officer position is appointed.
