This information was previously omitted from the Original 10-K in reliance on General Instruction G(3) to Form 10-K, which permits the information in the above referenced items to be incorporated in the Form 10-K by reference from our definitive proxy statement if such statement is filed no later than 120 days after our fiscal year-end. We are filing this Amendment No. 1 to include Part III information in our Form 10-K because we will not file a definitive proxy statement containing such information within 120 days after the end of the fiscal year covered by the Original 10-K. In addition, this Form 10-K/A deletes the reference on the cover of the Original 10-K to the incorporation by reference of portions of our proxy statement into Part III of the Original 10-K.

Pursuant to Rule 12b-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), this Form 10-K/A also contains certifications pursuant to Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, which are attached hereto. Because no financial statements have been included in this Form 10-K/A and this Form 10-K/A does not contain or amend any disclosure with respect to Items 307 and 308 of Regulation S-K, paragraphs 3, 4, and 5 of the certifications have been omitted.

Except as described above, this Form 10-K/A does not modify or update disclosure in, or exhibits to, the Original 10-K. Furthermore, this Form 10-K/A does not change any previously reported financial results. Information not affected by this Form 10-K/A remains unchanged and reflects the disclosures made at the time the Original 10-K was filed.

Compensation Discussion and Analysis

The following summary of the Company’s executive compensation program provides information regarding the compensation awarded to, earned by, or paid to Antonio Migliarese, our Chief Financial Officer, who also served as interim President beginning January 24, 2022 through July 9, 2022, and our two other executive officers as of May 31, 2022, Scott A Kelly, M.D., and Nitya G. Ray, Ph.D. Information is also presented for Nader Z. Pourhassan, Ph.D., our former President and Chief Executive Officer, whose employment with the Company terminated on January 24, 2022, and for Chris P. Recknor, M.D., who became our Senior Director of Research and Development, a non-executive position, on April 19, 2022. We refer to these five individuals as our “named executive officers.” Other executive officers who served during fiscal year 2022 received total compensation less than the amounts paid or awarded to our named executive officers.

Executive Compensation Policies and Procedures

Our Company believes that our executive compensation program should be designed to attract, motivate and retain highly qualified executives by paying them competitively and rewarding and encouraging individual and superior company performance, on both a short- and long-term basis, thereby aligning our executives’ behavior with long-term stockholder interests. The Board’s Compensation Committee is tasked with reviewing compensation policies and practices applicable to all executive officers. Effective July 2, 2021, the Compensation Committee adopted a written policy regarding executive compensation to govern the committee in making its determinations and fulfilling its responsibilities. Under the policy, the Compensation Committee will:

 

 

be composed of at least three members who are independent directors as provided under the Nasdaq Rules or rules of another applicable national securities exchange on which the Company’s stock is listed;

 

 

select and engage one or more independent compensation advisors and receive written recommendations from such advisors to assist the Compensation Committee in determining types and levels of compensation for executive officers and non-employee directors on an annual basis;

 

 

assess the compensation levels and composition of the Company’s peer group annually, based on factors the Compensation Committee deems relevant after discussion with its independent compensation advisor(s), and

8


consider for selection as peers, as deemed appropriate by the Compensation Committee, companies that are operating in the same industries as the Company and have similar market capitalization;

 

 

consider and approve the compensation of the Company’s executive officers annually, including the criteria upon which executive compensation is based, the specific relationship of corporate performance to executive compensation, and the composition of executive compensation in terms of base salary, deferred compensation, performance-based compensation, equity-based compensation, and other benefits to be provided to executive officers; this decision-making process will occur once per year, including evaluation of the achievement of goals for the most recent performance period(s) and establishment of goals for the ensuing performance period(s);

 

 

consider and approve the annual compensation for non-employee directors for each fiscal year, including cash retainers for service as directors and as members of Board committees, equity-based compensation, and other benefits to be provided to non-employee directors; and

 

 

refrain from recommending or approving bonuses to non-employee directors based on Company performance.

The policy expressly permits the Compensation Committee to make decisions regarding executive or director compensation in connection with the addition of new directors, the hiring of new executive officers or promotion of existing executive officers, and other circumstances that are, in the judgment of the Compensation Committee, exceptional. All decisions of the Compensation Committee are reported to our Board.

Role of Independent Compensation Advisor

The Compensation Committee has the sole authority and responsibility to select, retain, and terminate its independent compensation advisors and to approve their fees and terms of engagement. In April 2021, the Compensation Committee engaged Aon/Radford (“Aon”) as its new independent compensation consultant. The Compensation Committee selected Aon in part due to its experience in developing comparative compensation analyses by industry. Aon was asked to refresh the Company’s peer group for compensation comparison purposes, to provide comparative information regarding executive compensation at peer companies, and to assist in designing the Company’s executive compensation program for fiscal year 2022, including grants of equity awards and performance goals for incentive compensation.

Peer Group Adopted for Fiscal Year 2022

As part of its consulting services, Aon conducts surveys and develops comparative compensation data by industry. In June 2021, Aon assisted the Compensation Committee in selecting a new peer group focused on pre-revenue biotechnology companies. The peer group recommended by Aon included a total of 20 companies, of which 12 were additions to the peer group previously used by the Compensation Committee for market comparison purposes. The proposed peer group included companies with market caps ranging from 0.3 times to 3.0 times the Company’s then market cap, with the goal of smoothing variations in comparability that could arise from volatility in stock trading prices. The Compensation Committee approved the updated peer group as recommended by Aon for purposes of establishing the Company’s executive compensation program for fiscal year 2022, as follows:

Agenus*

Agios Pharmaceuticals

Albireo Pharma*

Arcus Biosciences

Celldex Therapeutics*

Chinook Therapeutics*

Curis*

Cytokinetics

Deciphera Pharmaceuticals

Dicerna Pharmaceuticals

Epizyme

IDEAYA Biosciences*

Immunovant*

Inovio Pharmaceuticals*

MacroGenics*

Mersana Therapeutics*

Molecular Templates

Sorrento Therapeutics*

Syndax Pharmaceuticals*

Y-mAbs Therapeutics

* Indicates a company that was added to the peer group in Aon’s fiscal year 2022 analysis

In accordance with Aon’s recommendations, the following companies were removed from the fiscal year 2022 peer group: Apellis Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; BridgeBio Pharma, Inc.; Eagle Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Fate Therapeutics, Inc.; Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Novavax, Inc.; Principia Biopharma Inc.; and TG Therapeutics, Inc.

Executive Compensation Program for Fiscal Year 2022

Based on recommendations by Aon, the Compensation Committee structured our executive compensation program for fiscal year 2022 to include the elements described below. In making decisions on the 2022 program, the Compensation Committee determined that target total direct compensation for our executive officers generally should not exceed the 75th percentile of the Company’s peer group. It also decided that stock option grants should be used to align the executives’ compensation with value creation for our stockholders and, where appropriate, to fix target total direct compensation at the desired peer group percentile. For Dr. Recknor and Mr. Migliarese, the Compensation Committee determined that salaries should fall in the 25th to 50th percentile, with target total direct compensation pegged at the 50th percentile compared to the Company’s peer group. In making its determinations regarding the 2022 executive officer compensation program, the Compensation Committee did not expressly take into consideration the results of the most recent advisory vote on executive compensation at the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders held on November 24, 2021, but has sought to act in accordance with its understanding of the stockholders’ interests in considering and approving compensation for the Company’s executive officers.

Base Salaries

The Compensation Committee determined base salaries for the named executive officers for fiscal year 2022 based on a variety of factors, including salary levels in the competitive labor market and for similar positions at companies in the Company’s peer group, individual performance, job responsibilities, and tenure with the Company, as well as prior experience, economic conditions facing the Company, and retention.

The Compensation Committee also solicited input from the Company’s then CEO with respect to the compensation of the other named executive officers and took into consideration the CEO’s recommendations.

Based on comparative compensation information provided by Aon/Radford in July 2021, the Compensation Committee fixed base salaries for the Company’s named executive officers for fiscal year 2022 as follows: Dr. Pourhassan, $665,000, a decrease of approximately 33%; Dr. Kelly, $585,000, a decrease of approximately 16%; Dr. Ray, $525,000, unchanged, Dr. Recknor, $460,000; and Mr. Migliarese, $415,000. With respect to Dr. Kelly, the Compensation Committee determined to peg his salary at $100,000 above the 75th percentile for his position as Chief Medical Officer in the market comparisons for the Company’s peer group, in recognition of his service as Board Chair, Head of Business Development, and additional public relations responsibilities. Dr. Recknor’s increase was made retroactive to March 11, 2021, when he became Chief Operating Officer, and Mr. Migliarese’s increase was made retroactive to May 18, 2021, when he was promoted to the position of Chief Financial Officer. In March 2022, in order to conserve cash resources, the Compensation Committee authorized the payment of 25% of executive salaries in the form of shares of common stock. In September 2022, Mr. Migliarese’s salary for the period from January 24, 2022, until July 9, 2022, was increased by $25,000 in recognition of his dual service as CFO and interim President.

Annual Cash Incentive Plan

For fiscal year 2022, the Compensation Committee established performance goals for each of our named executive officers under our bonus plan for executive officers. The target level of annual cash incentives for each named executive officer is fixed in the executive’s employment agreement, and expressed as a percent of base salary. For fiscal year 2022, all named executive officers had a target bonus equal to 50% of the executive’s base salary other than Dr. Pourhassan, whose target percentage was 100% of base salary.

As recommended by Aon, the performance goals, established by the Compensation Committee for the named executive officers for the 2022 fiscal year were corporate-wide goals intended to facilitate the successful execution of the Company’s strategic objectives, including completion of the resubmission of the Company’s Biologic License Application for leronlimab as a combination therapy for highly treatment-experienced HIV patients.

10


In June 2022, the Compensation Committee assessed the extent to which the performance goals established in July 2021 had been achieved and determined that none of the performance goals had been satisfied. Accordingly, no bonuses or cash incentive payments were paid to the named executive officers for services during fiscal year 2022. See the Grants of Plan-Based Awards table below for additional information.

Long-Term Equity Incentives

We also provide long-term incentives to our named executive officers under the 2012 Plan. For fiscal year 2021, the Compensation Committee had approved equity awards comprising stock options, restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and performance share awards (“PSUs”). In July 2021, based on advice from Aon/Radford that the predominant practice of pre-revenue biotech companies is to grant equity awards in the form of stock options, the Compensation Committee decided to return to the practice of granting nonqualified stock options as the only form of equity incentive compensation for fiscal year 2022. Nonqualified stock options do not provide holders with the tax advantages afforded to holders of incentive stock options under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended; rather, they benefit the Company by permitting it to deduct compensation expense for tax purposes when options are exercised in an amount equal to the compensation income recognized by the option holder.

Stock options provide our executives with opportunities for financial gain derived from the potential appreciation in stock price from the date the option is granted until the date the option is exercised. Stock options are granted to executives with an exercise price equal to or above the closing sale price of our common stock on the OTCQB on the grant date. Our long-term performance ultimately determines the value of stock options, because gains from stock option exercises are entirely dependent on the long-term appreciation in the price of our common stock. As a result, we believe stock options encourage our executives and other employees to focus on creating shareholder value.

In fiscal year 2022, our named executive officers were granted nonqualified stock options to purchase common stock as follows: Dr. Pourhassan, 4,275,000 shares; Dr. Kelly, 1,750,000 shares; Dr. Ray, 500,000 shares; Dr. Recknor, 1,475,000 shares; and Mr. Migliarese, 1,000,000 shares. In September 2022, Mr. Migliarese was granted a nonqualified stock option to purchase 630,222 shares of common stock in recognition of his service as both interim President and Chief Financial Officer for almost six months beginning January 24, 2022. Dr. Pourhassan’s options were forfeited upon termination of his employment on January 24, 2022. See the “Grants of Plan-Based Awards” table below for additional information about stock options granted in fiscal year 2022.

(1) These amounts comprise the target cash incentive award levels for the 2022 executive bonus program. The Compensation Committee did not establish separate threshold or maximum payouts. The Compensation Committee determined that none of the performance goals underlying the awards for fiscal year 2022 had been met, so no amounts were paid.

(2)

The stock award to Dr. Pourhassan represents the severance payment under his employment agreement paid on March 25, 2022, in the form of shares of common stock. The stock awards to other named executive officers represent 25% of salary paid in shares.

The option granted to Antonio Migliarese on September 20, 2022, was approved by the Compensation Committee on that date as additional compensation for service as interim President beginning January 24, 2022. Twenty-five percent of the award will vest on January 24, 2023; the balance will vest in 36 equal monthly installments beginning one month thereafter, subject to Continuous Service (as the term is defined in the 2012 Plan) through the applicable vesting date. All other options shown in the table vest in three equal annual installments beginning on August 6, 2022, subject to Continuous Service through the applicable vesting date.

Additional Compensation Information

Employee Pension, Profit Sharing or Other Retirement Plans

Effective January 1, 2010, we adopted an employee savings plan pursuant to Section 401(k) of the Internal Revenue Code (the “401(k) Plan”) and covering substantially all employees. We make “safe harbor” qualified non-elective

14


contributions, which vest immediately, equal to 3% of each participant’s salary, up to the maximum limit permitted under Section 401(k). In addition, participants in the 401(k) Plan may contribute a percentage of their compensation, up to the maximum limit under the Internal Revenue Code. We do not have any other defined benefit pension plan, profit sharing or retirement plan.

Employment Agreements

We have entered into an employment agreement with each of the named executive officers listed in the Summary Compensation Table above. These employment agreements, other than the agreement with Dr. Pourhassan, are collectively referred to below as the “Employment Agreements.” Dr. Pourhassan’s employment agreement was terminated, except as provided therein and in his separation agreement effective as of March 8, 2022, as of the termination of his employment on January 24, 2022. The Employment Agreements provide for indefinite terms of employment until terminated by either party as provided in the Employment Agreements. Each Employment Agreement provides for payment of a base salary (as adjusted by the Compensation Committee from time to time), equity awards under the 2012 Plan (or any successor plan) as determined by the Compensation Committee, and benefits generally made available to the Company’s senior leadership. The Employment Agreements also provide for annual cash incentive performance awards, with target dollar amounts equal to 50% of base salary. The actual amounts of target awards to be paid are based on the Compensation Committee’s evaluation of the level of achievement of the related performance goals, and are payable, as determined by the Compensation Committee, either in cash in full, or 50% in cash and 50% in unrestricted shares of Common stock. Under each of the Employment Agreements, the executive must remain actively employed by the Company through the date of a cash incentive payment to be entitled to the payment.

The Company also entered into an employment agreement with Cyrus Arman, Ph.D., our new President, effective as of July 9, 2022. The agreement has an initial six-month term. Dr. Arman will be considered for advancement to the position of Chief Executive Officer during the initial term, in which event the term of the agreement will be extended. The agreement provides for compensation to Dr. Arman as follows:

An initial annual base salary of $458,000.
Eligibility to participate in our short- and long-term incentive plans in which other executive officers may participate, with a target annual bonus equal to 40% of Dr. Arman’s annual base salary.
An initial grant of options with a grant date fair value of $750,000, and awards of restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and performance stock units (“PSUs”), each with a grant date fair value of $375,000. The initial stock option grant and RSUs were awarded on September 20, 2022. The RSUs vest in four equal annual installments subject to continued employment.
Vesting of the PSUs will be tied to satisfactory achievement of performance metrics to be approved by the Board at the time of grant.  
Other customary benefits for which Dr. Arman is qualified as an executive officer of the Company.

Dr. Arman is also entitled to severance benefits under his employment agreement as follows:

If Dr. Arman’s employment is terminated by the Company without cause during the first six months of his employment, he will be entitled to receive cash severance in an amount equal to six months of his annual base salary, with an additional month of severance for each additional month that Dr. Arman is employed up to a maximum of 12 months of severance; or
if the Company experiences a change in control during Dr. Arman’s employment and, during the 12 months following the change in control, the Company terminates his employment without cause or he resigns for good reason, cash severance in an amount equal to 12 months of his annual base salary in effect when his termination occurs.

Severance payments may be satisfied either in cash or in common stock, at the sole discretion of the Company. The payment of severance will be subject to Dr. Arman’s execution and non-revocation of a release of claims and continued compliance with certain restrictive covenants.

15


Payments upon Termination of Employment, Death or Disability, or Change in Control

In the event we terminate the employment of any of our named executive officers without cause, and subject to the named executive officer’s execution and non-revocation of a release of claims and continued compliance with certain restrictive covenants, the Employment Agreements provide for (i) a lump sum payment equal to the sum of three (3) months for Mr. Migliarese, six (6) months for Dr. Recknor, six (6) months for Dr. Kelly, and three (3) months for Dr. Ray, (ii) payments equal to nine (9) months of base salary for Migliarese, six (6) months for Dr. Recknor, six (6) months for Dr. Kelly, and nine (9) months for Dr. Ray, to be paid in regular installments corresponding with the Company’s regular payroll schedule; provided, that the payments described in clause (ii) may not exceed two times the lesser of (A) the sum of the named executive officer’s annualized compensation based upon the named executive officer’s annual salary in the year preceding the year in which the named executive officer’s employment is terminated (adjusted for any increase during that year that was expected to continue indefinitely if the named executive officer’s employment had not terminated) or (B) the applicable dollar limit under Section 401(a)(17) of the Internal Revenue Code for the calendar year in which the named executive officer’s employment is terminated (such limit, the “Severance Limit”), and (iii) all outstanding stock options and other equity awards granted as of the effective date of the Employment Agreement will vest, and (if applicable) become immediately exercisable, except as otherwise provided in an award agreement. The payments described in clauses (i) and (ii) may, in the discretion of the Compensation Committee, be made in whole or in part through the issuance of shares of common stock. Upon an executive’s death or disability, the Company will satisfy its accrued obligations to pay salary and benefits through the date of the event.

In the event we terminate the employment of any of our current named executive officers without cause, or a named executive officer resigns for good reason, in each case, within 12 months following a change in control, and subject to the named executive officer’s execution and non-revocation of a release of claims, the Employment Agreements provide for a lump sum payment equal to the sum of eighteen (18) months of base salary for Mr. Migliarese, and eight (8) months for Dr. Recknor, eight (8) months for Dr. Kelly, and eighteen (18) months for Dr. Ray. Additionally, Dr. Recknor’s Employment Agreement provides for additional payments equal to ten (10) months base salary for Dr. Recknor, to be paid in regular installments corresponding with the Company’s regular payroll schedule, provided, that such payments may not exceed two times the lesser of (A) the sum of the named executive officer’s annualized compensation based upon the named executive officer’s annual salary in the year preceding the year in which the named executive officer’s employment is terminated (adjusted for any increase during that year that was expected to continue indefinitely if the named executive officer’s employment had not terminated), or (B) the Severance Limit. Additionally, Dr. Kelly’s Employment Agreement provides for additional payments equal to ten (10) months of base salary, to be paid on the first regular payroll date following the date that is 270 days following the termination date of his employment; provided, that such payments may not exceed the Severance Limit. Any payments made in relation to a change in control would be in lieu of, and not in addition to, the severance that may be payable upon a termination without cause not within 12 months following a change in control; provided, additionally, the payments described in this clause may not exceed the Severance Limit. Also, all then outstanding and unvested stock options granted to a named executive officer as of the date of the executive’s Employment Agreement will vest as of the change in control date and (if applicable) become immediately exercisable, unless otherwise provided in an award agreement.

The definitions of certain terms used in the Employment Agreements are summarized below:

“Cause” generally means fraudulent or similar acts intended to enrich the executive personally to the detriment or at the expense of the Company; willful and continued failure to perform the duties or obligations reasonably assigned to the executive; a material breach of the confidentiality or non-competition provisions of the Employment Agreement; and conviction of a felony.

“Good reason” generally means a material reduction in the executive’s authority, duties, or responsibilities; a material decrease in the executive’s base salary (with certain exceptions); a relocation of the executive’s principal place of employment by a distance of more than 50 miles; or a material breach of the Employment Agreement by the Company.

“Change in control” generally means the acquisition by a person or group of more than 50% of the total fair market value or total voting power of our outstanding stock; the replacement of a majority of the members of the Board during

16


any 12-month period (unless endorsed by a majority of the existing directors); or the acquisition by a person or group of assets representing at least 40% of the total gross fair market value of our assets.

Dr. Pourhassan became entitled to cash severance totaling $997,500 upon termination of his employment on January 24, 2022, of which $665,000 was paid in March 2022 and the balance is paid in six monthly installments beginning July 2022. All of his stock options and RSUs held on January 24, 2022, expired unexercised.

CEO Pay Ratio

The following information provides, for fiscal year 2022, an analysis of the relationship between the annual total compensation of our employees and the annual total compensation of the interim President, Antonio Migliarese, who was serving as our principal executive officer on May 31, 2022 for fiscal year 2022, calculated in accordance with the SEC’s disclosure rules:

The total compensation of Mr. Migliarese, based on his compensation as of May 31, 2022, and then annualized for the full 2022 fiscal year 2022, was $2,139,529.
The median of the annual total compensation of all of our employees other than Mr. Migliarese (based on our median employee identified under the methodology described below) was $272,000.
The resulting ratio of our principal executive officer’s annual total compensation to the annual total compensation of our median employee is 8 to 1.

The pay ratio stated above is a reasonable estimate calculated in a manner consistent with SEC rules based on our internal records. The SEC's rules for identifying the median compensated employee and calculating the pay ratio based on that employee’s annual total compensation allow companies to adopt a variety of methodologies, to apply certain exclusions, and to make reasonable estimates and assumptions that reflect their employee populations and compensation practices. As a result, the pay ratios reported by other companies may not be comparable to our pay ratio stated above.

We completed the following steps to identify the median of the annual total compensation of our employees and to determine the annual total compensation of our median employee and principal executive officer:

On May 31, 2022, the date we used to determine the employees to be included in our ratio calculation, our employee population consisted of approximately 20 individuals, including full-time, part-time and temporary employees employed on that date.
To find the median of the annual total compensation of the individuals (other than Mr. Migliarese) in our employee population as described above, we used the same methodology as used for purposes of disclosing the total compensation of our executive officers in the Summary Compensation Table. In making this

17


determination, we annualized the compensation of full-time and part-time permanent employees who were employed on May 31, 2022 but who did not work for us during a portion of fiscal year 2022. No full-time equivalent adjustments were made.
We identified our median employee using this compensation measure and methodology, which was consistently applied to all employees included in the calculation.
After identifying the median employee, we added together all of the elements of that employee’s compensation for fiscal year 2022 in accordance with the requirements applicable to calculating annual total compensation for purposes of the Summary Compensation Table above.

Item 13.   Certain Relationships and Related Transactions and Director Independence

Related Person Transactions

We describe below each transaction or series of similar transactions, since June 1, 2021, to which we were a party or will be a party, in which:

the amounts involved exceeded or may exceed $120,000; and

19


any of our directors, executive officers or holders of more than 5% of our capital stock, or any member of the immediate family of the foregoing persons, at any time since June 1, 2021, had or will have a direct or indirect material interest.

The Audit Committee of the Board reviews and approves all related party transactions in accordance with the Company’s Related Party Transactions Policy, which is available on our website, www.cytodyn.com/investors. Generally, it is the Company’s policy to enter into or ratify related party transactions only when the Board, acting through the Audit Committee, determines that the transaction in question is in, or is not inconsistent with, the best interests of the Company and its stockholders. Specifically, when reviewing a related party transaction, the Audit Committee considers all relevant factors, including but not limited to (if and to the extent possible): the benefits to the Company; the impact on a director’s independence in the event the related party is a director, an immediate family member of a director or an entity in which a director is a partner, stockholder or executive officer; the availability of other sources for comparable products or services; the terms of the transaction; and the terms available to unrelated third parties or to employees generally. We believe the terms of the related party transactions described below or elsewhere in this Proxy Statement were comparable to terms we could have obtained in arm’s length dealings with unrelated third parties.

The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) reviews and approves all related party transactions in accordance with the Company’s Related Party Transactions Policy, which is available on our website, www.cytodyn.com/investors. Generally, it is the Company’s policy to enter into or ratify related party transactions only when the Board, acting through the Audit Committee, determines that the transaction in question is in, or is not inconsistent with, the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. Specifically, when reviewing a related party transaction, the Audit Committee considers all relevant factors, including but not limited to (if and to the extent possible): the benefits to the Company; the impact on a director’s independence in the event the related party is a director, an immediate family member of a director or an entity in which a director is a partner, shareholder or executive officer; the availability of other sources for comparable products or services; the terms of the transaction; and the terms available to unrelated third parties or to employees generally.

The Center for Advanced Research & Education, LLC (“CARE”), owned by Julie Recknor, Ph.D., the spouse of Chris P. Recknor, M.D., is one of our named executive officers, is one of several clinical locations for the Company’s ongoing NASH and COVID-19 long-hauler clinical trials, and was a clinical location for the Company’s completed Phase 2b/3 mild-to-moderate and severe-to-critical COVID-19 clinical trials. Dr. Julie Recknor serves as the Site Director of CARE and manages its day-to-day operations. The Company entered into a Clinical Trial Agreement (“CTA”) with CARE for each of these clinical trials. Each CTA was negotiated in the ordinary course of business by Amarex, the Company’s Clinical Research Organization, prior to Dr. Chris Recknor’s appointment as an executive officer of the Company, and the operational and financial terms of the CTA with CARE are comparable to the terms available to unrelated clinical locations. Dr. Chris Recknor was not involved in the Company’s decision to choose CARE as a clinical location for its ongoing trials, and he is not involved in patient recruitment at the CARE site. As of June 1, 2021, the Company had approximately $0.9 million in accounts payable due to CARE and made payments of approximately $1.7 million to CARE during the fiscal year ended May 31, 2022.

On September 23, 2021, Jordan G. Naydenov, then a director of the Company entered into a private warrant exchange in which he exercised warrants to purchase common stock at $0.90 and $1.50 per share in lieu of the stated exercise price on the original warrants of $0.45 and $0.75 per share, respectively. Mr. Naydenov purchased a total of 644,444 shares of common stock, as well as 644,444 additional shares as an inducement to exercise his warrants, for a total of 1,288,888 shares of common stock. The terms and conditions of the investment totaling approximately $700,000 made by Mr. Naydenov were identical to those offered to other investors.

On February 14, 2022, the Company entered into a Surety Bond Backstop Agreement (the “Backstop Agreement”) with David F. Welch, M.D., in his individual capacity and as trustee of a revocable trust, as well as certain other related parties (collectively, the “Indemnitors”). Pursuant to the Backstop Agreement, the Indemnitors agreed to assist the Company in obtaining a surety bond (the “Surety Bond”) for posting in connection with the Company’s ongoing litigation with Amarex Clinical Research, LLC ("Amarex”) by, among other things, agreeing to indemnify the issuer of the Surety Bond (the “Surety”) with respect to the Company’s obligations under the Surety Bond through August 13, 2022. As consideration for the Indemnitors’ agreement to indemnify the Surety, the Company agreed (i) to issue to 4-

20


Good Ventures LLC, an affiliate of the Indemnitors (“4-Good”) controlled by Dr. Welch, a warrant for the purchase of 15,000,000 shares of common stock as a backstop fee (the “Initial Warrant”), (ii) to issue to 4-Good a warrant for the purchase of an additional 15,000,000 shares, to be exercisable only if the Indemnitors are required to make any payment to the Surety (the “Make-Whole Warrant” and, together with the Initial Warrant, the “4-Good Warrants”), and (iii) if the Indemnitors are required to make a payment to the Surety, (A) within 90 days of such payment, to reimburse the Indemnitors for any amount paid to the Surety and (B) to pay to the Indemnitors an indemnification fee in an amount equal to 1.5 times the amount paid by the Indemnitors to the Surety. The payment obligations of the Company to the Indemnitors will bear interest at 10% per annum and are secured by substantially all of the patents held by the Company.

Pursuant to an amendment to the Backstop Agreement executed on July 18, 2022 (the “Backstop Amendment”), (i) the obligation of the Indemnitors to indemnify the Surety was extended from August 13, 2022 to November 15, 2022, (ii) each of the 4-Good Warrants has a five-year term from the date of issuance and an exercise price of $0.20 per share (reduced from $0.30 per share), (iii) the Make-Whole Warrant was amended to be fully exercisable immediately, (iv) the deadline for the Company to use its commercially reasonable efforts to file a Registration Statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) that is intended to register for resale the shares underlying the 4-Good Warrants was extended to December 31, 2022, (v) the Indemnitors and 4-Good agreed to waive the requirement to reserve for issuance the shares subject to the Make-Whole Warrant pending stockholder approval of an increase in the authorized shares of common stock and (vi) upon the exercise in full of the 4-Good Warrants, the Company agreed to take reasonable steps to cause the Indemnitors to be released from their indemnity obligations by an amount equal to the exercise proceeds. As a result of the Backstop Amendment, Dr. Welch acquired beneficial ownership of more than 5.0 percent of the outstanding common stock as of July 18, 2022.

Director Independence

We are not a “listed issuer” as that term is used in Regulation S-K Item 407 adopted by the SEC. However, in determining director independence, we use the definition of independence in Rule 5605(a)(2) and Rule 5605(c)(2) of the listing rules of The Nasdaq Stock Market (the “Nasdaq Rules”).

The Board has determined that current directors Brunke, Dunlap, Ndhlovu and Urbach are independent as defined in the Nasdaq Rules and none of them otherwise have a relationship that, in the opinion of the Board, would interfere with his or her exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. Director Kelly, as the Company’s Chief Medical Officer, is not independent under the Nasdaq Rules. The Board is not aware of any transactions, arrangements, or relationships affecting the independence of any of the current directors other than Dr. Kelly that were not required to be disclosed under Regulation S-K Item 404(a) adopted by the SEC.

Item 14.   Principal Accountant Fees and Services

Board Pre-Approval Process, Policies and Procedures

On April 13, 2022, the Company received a letter from the Company’s then current independent registered public accounting firm, Warren Averett, LLC (“Warren Averett”), informing the Company that, effective April 13, 2022, Warren Averett was resigning as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. The Company’s Audit Committee had not recommended a change in the Company’s accountant. On April 18, 2022, the Audit Committee appointed and engaged Macias Gini & O’Connell LLP (“MGO”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm to perform the audit of the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2022, subject to the completion of client acceptance procedures.

During the fiscal years ended May 31, 2020 and May 31, 2021, as well as the subsequent interim period through April 13, 2022, there were no disagreements (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K), between the Company and Warren Averett on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Warren Averett, would have caused Warren Averett to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with its reports.

The Audit Committee pre-approves all engagements for audit and non-audit services provided by our independent registered public accounting firms. The Audit Committee pre-approved 100% of the audit fees described below.
