(the “Company”), submitted his resignation as CEO, effective August 1, 2024 (the “Effective Date”). He will continue to serve as a director and Chair of the Board. The resignation was voluntary, not due to any disagreement with the Company on any matter, and part of a previously announced succession plan.

Separately, Mr. Rawlings will enter into the Company’s standard Consulting Agreement (the “Consulting Agreement”), the form of which was previously filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s current report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on April 4, 2023.

Mr. Rawlings will be paid a consulting fee of $200,000 per annum, payable pro rata monthly (i.e. $16,667 per full month). As a consultant to the Company and a member of the Board, Mr. Rawlings is eligible to receive equity awards pursuant to the Company’s equity compensation plans from time to time, as well as other remuneration, in each case as determined by the compensation committee of the Board. No such compensation, other than as outlined above, is contemplated at this time. The Consulting Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and continue for one year, automatically renewing for successive one-year terms unless terminated by Mr. Rawlings or the Company. The Consulting Agreement may be terminated by Mr. Rawlings at any time and by the Company upon 10-days prior notice to Mr. Rawlings.

In addition, on April 30, 2024, the Board appointed Margaret (“Margi”) Tooth, the Company’s President, as the CEO, to be effective as of August 1, 2024. Ms. Tooth will continue to serve as the President of the Company.

Previously, Ms. Tooth held various positions at Allianz Insurance plc, including Acting Head of Marketing in 2011, and as the E-commerce and Brand Manager from 2009 to 2013. Ms. Tooth has also held marketing roles within business-to-business and direct-to-consumer brand functions in the United Kingdom. Ms. Tooth holds a B.A. in Business from University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom.
