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

As previously disclosed, effective as of November 14, 2022, Robert Madore ceased to serve as Chief Financial Officer of Cronos Group Inc. (the “Company”) and ceased to be employed by the Company and Cronos USA Client Services LLC (“Cronos USA”). In accordance with the terms and conditions of his employment agreement and outstanding equity award agreements, subject to Mr. Madore’s entering into a release of claims, Mr. Madore became entitled to (1) a lump sum payment of $450,000, which represents one year of Mr. Madore’s annual base salary, (2) a pro-rated annual bonus for the Company’s 2022 fiscal year, and (3) accelerated vesting of 450,000 non-qualified stock options and 37,500 restricted share units.

On February 8, 2023, the Company and Cronos USA, entered into a separation agreement with Mr. Madore (the “Separation Agreement”). The Separation Agreement specifies that Mr. Madore’s pro-rated annual bonus for the Company’s 2022 fiscal year will have an individual performance component of $123,750 and a business performance component equal to: $562,500, multiplied by 60%, multiplied by the business performance rating percentage determined solely by the Company, and thereafter multiplied by a fraction where the numerator is 11 and the denominator is 12, subject to the terms and conditions of the Company’s short-term incentive compensation program and Mr. Madore entering into the aforementioned release of claims. In addition, the Separation Agreement provides for a lump sum payment of $18,356.61, which is equal to one year of Cronos USA’s portion of Mr. Madore’s benefits premium, grossed up, in lieu of the continuation of group insured benefits he was entitled to under his employment agreement.

Pursuant to the Separation Agreement, Mr. Madore continues to be subject to an ongoing non-disparagement provision, and the ongoing confidentiality and intellectual property provisions contained in his employment agreement.

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