All other equity awards granted to Mr. Liner will be forfeited. The Company’s obligations under the Agreement are conditioned upon Mr. Liner’s agreement to sign a release in favor of the Company and its affiliates, and to continue to abide by certain confidentiality, non-competition and non-solicitation provisions. In addition, Mr. Liner will enter into a three-month consulting agreement with the Company pursuant to which, in exchange for certain consulting services, he (or an entity that he controls) will be entitled to a payment of $15,000 for June 2022 and $10,000 for each of July and August 2022.
