CFO Compensation Letter Agreement
On December 22, 2021, the Companys Board of Directors (the Board) approved a compensation letter agreement with the Companys Chief Financial Officer, Yibo Ling (the Letter Agreement). The material terms of the Letter Agreement are as follows.
Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, Mr. Ling will be granted an award of restricted stock units (RSUs) covering shares of the Companys Class A Common Stock (the RSU Award) under the Companys 2021 Incentive Award Plan (the 2021 Plan). The material terms and conditions of the RSU Award are described below in the section entitled, CFO Equity Award.
Under the Letter Agreement, the RSU Award and Mr. Lings outstanding Company options (the Ling Options) are eligible to vest as follows:
if a Change in Control occurs prior to November 4, 2022, then (x) the RSU Award and (y) any shares underlying the Ling Options that are eligible to vest prior to such date (the Eligible CIC Option Shares) will fully vest and (as applicable) become exercisable on an accelerated basis, subject to Mr. Lings continued employment until immediately prior to the closing of such Change in Control; or
if Mr. Ling experiences an Involuntary Termination within 60 days prior to a Change in Control, then, during such 60-day period, the RSU Award and any Eligible CIC Option Shares will remain outstanding and eligible to fully vest and (as applicable) become exercisable upon such Change in Control. If, however, a Change in Control does not occur within such 60-day period, the RSU Award and any Ling Options automatically will (to the extent then-unvested) be forfeited for no consideration.
For purposes of the benefits described above, a Change in Control is defined in the Letter Agreement to have the meaning set forth in the Companys Amended and Restated Bird Global, Inc. 2017 Stock Plan, with respect to the Ling Options, or as set forth in the 2021 Plan, with respect to the RSU Award. In addition, an Involuntary Termination means a termination of Mr. Lings employment by the Company without Cause or by Mr. Ling for Good Reason (each as defined in the Letter Agreement).
In addition, under the Letter Agreement, if Mr. Ling experiences an Involuntary Termination, then:
the Company will pay to Mr. Ling a cash amount equal to three months of his annual base salary then in effect, payable in substantially equal installments over the three-month period following the termination date; and
each then-unvested portion of the RSU Award and any Ling Option shall, in each case, vest and (as applicable) become exercisable on an accelerated basis as of the termination date with respect to the number of shares underlying the award that would have vested had Mr. Ling remained in continuous employment during the one-month period following such termination date (and calculated as though the RSU Award and Ling Options vest on a monthly basis from the applicable grant date).
Any severance payments and benefits described above will be conditioned upon Mr. Lings timely execution and non-revocation of the Companys standard general release of all claims in a form prescribed by the Company.
The foregoing description of the Letter Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.
CFO Equity Award
On December 22, 2021, the Board also approved the grant of the RSU Award to Mr. Ling, pursuant to the 2021 Plan. The material terms of the award are described below.
The RSU Award covers 2,345,274 shares of the Companys Class A Common Stock, and it vests with respect to 25% of the RSUs on each of the first four quarterly anniversaries of November 4, 2021, subject to Mr. Lings (i) continued employment through the applicable vesting date and (ii) continued compliance with the restrictive covenants set forth in the award agreement evidencing the RSU Award. In addition, under the Letter Agreement, the RSU Award is subject to accelerated vesting provisions in connection with certain events, as described above in the section entitled, CFO Compensation Letter Agreement.
The award agreement evidencing the RSU Award contains customary restrictive covenants, including non-competition restrictions (effective during employment and for 18 months following a termination of employment) and non-solicitation restrictions (effective during employment and for two years following a termination of employment).
