Item 5.02.Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers. 


As previously reported in a Form 8-K filed by Humanigen, Inc. (the “Company”) on October 5, 2021, the compensation committee of the board of directors of the Company (the “Committee”) approved a program pursuant to which the Company’s executive officers and employees were offered the opportunity receive all or a portion of their base salaries for the fourth quarter of 2021 in the form of stock options. Due to adverse tax implications for participating U.S.-based employees, on November 23, 2021 the Company, with the approval of the Committee, offered participating employees the opportunity to rescind their participation in the program. Except for Dale Chappell, each of the Company’s executive officers who originally elected to participate have accepted the offer to rescind their participation in the program. As a result of such rescissions, the stock options granted on September 30, 2021 to each of Cameron Durrant, Adrian Kilcoyne and Edward Jordan have been cancelled for no consideration, and each executive will receive 100% of his base salary for the fourth quarter of 2021 in cash.
