Item 1.01      Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

Extension of Agreement with Chief Financial Officer

 

On February 25, 2020, BioLargo, Inc. (“we”, or the “Company”) and our Chief Financial Officer Charles K. Dargan, II formally agreed to extend the engagement agreement dated February 1, 2008 (the “Engagement Agreement”, which had been previously extended multiple times), pursuant to which Mr. Dargan has been and continues to serve as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer. The Engagement Extension Agreement dated as of February 25, 2020 (the “Engagement Extension Agreement”) provides for an additional term to begin retroactively on October 1, 2019, and to expire January 31, 2021 (the “Extended Term”).

 

As the sole compensation for the Extended Term, Mr. Dargan was issued an option (“Option”) to purchase 25,000 shares of the Company’s common stock for each month during the Extended Term (thus, an option to purchase 400,000 shares reflecting an extended term of 16 months). The Option vests over the period of the Extended Term, with 75,000 shares having vested as of December 31, 2019, and the remaining shares to vest 25,000 shares monthly beginning January 31, 2020, and each month thereafter, so long as the agreement is in full force and effect. The Option is exercisable at $0.21 per share, the closing price of BioLargo’s common stock on February 25, 2020, expires ten years from the grant date, and was issued pursuant to the Company’s 2018 Equity Incentive Plan.

 

The Option is Mr. Dargan’s sole compensation for the Extended Term. As was the case in all prior terms of his engagement, there is no cash component of his compensation for the Extended Term. Mr. Dargan is eligible to be reimbursed for business expenses he incurs in connection with the performance of his services as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer (although he has made no such requests for reimbursement in the past). All other provisions of the Engagement Agreement not expressly amended pursuant to the Engagement Extension Agreement remain the same, including provisions regarding indemnification and arbitration of disputes.
