Reference is made to Item 5.02 of that certain Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Lakeland Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 16, 2021, which reported, among other items, that the Board of the Directors of the Company approved an increase in the annual base salary of Charles D. Roberson, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and President, to $425,000, effective January 1, 2022.

Effective January 1, 2022, the Company and Mr. Roberson entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Employment Letter Agreement dated January 27, 2020, by and between Mr. Roberson and the Company (the “Agreement”). In addition to reflecting the previously reported increase in Mr. Roberson’s annual base salary approved by the Board in December, the Amendment provides that, at the end of the then-current term of the Agreement, the Agreement’s duration shall automatically extend for a subsequent 12-month period, unless either party provides written notice of termination at least 90 days before the expiration of then-current term. There are no other material terms of the Amendment. A copy of the Amendment is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
