Item 5.02

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

On September 16, 2020, OneSpaWorld Holdings Limited (“OneSpaWorld” or the “Company”) announced that Glenn Fusfield, Chief Executive Officer and member of the Board of Directors of OneSpaWorld (the “Board”), plans to retire following a transition period during which he will remain in his current position and continue to run the business in the ordinary course until his retirement on March 31, 2021, unless his employment is terminated earlier pursuant to the terms of the Transition Agreement (such applicable date, the “Retirement Date”). Following the Retirement Date, Mr. Fusfield will continue to serve as member of the Board, but in the capacity of a non-employee director. The Board expects to appoint Leonard Fluxman, currently the Executive Chairman of OneSpaWorld, as the Chief Executive Officer upon the Retirement Date. Furthermore, OneSpaWorld expects to appoint Susan Bonner as its Chief Commercial Officer in October 2020. In connection with Mr. Fusfield’s transition and retirement, OneSpaWorld and Mr. Fusfield entered into a transition and retirement agreement, dated as of September 15, 2020 (the “Transition Agreement”), which supersedes the employment agreement between OneSpaWorld and Mr. Fusfield, dated November 1, 2018 (the “Employment Agreement”). Pursuant to the Transition Agreement, Mr. Fusfield will remain employed through March 31, 2021, unless Mr. Fusfield resigns on an earlier date or the Company terminates Mr. Fusfield’s employment prior to March 31, 2021 by providing not less than 30 days’ notice or at any time upon a termination for “cause” (as defined in the Employment Agreement).

Under the terms of the Transition Agreement, during the remaining period of Mr. Fusfield’s employment with the Company, he will be eligible to continue to participate in the Company’s employee benefit plans and receive his base salary at its current rate prior to October 1, 2020, and at an annualized rate of $648,900 from October 1, 2020 through the Retirement Date. Furthermore, if Mr. Fusfield does not resign prior to March 31, 2021, is not terminated by the Company for “cause”, and timely re-executes the general release of claims in favor of the Company and complies with the terms of the Transition Agreement, he will (i) receive a grant of 166,667 performance stock units (“PSUs”) under the Company’s 2019 Equity Incentive Plan, pursuant to an award agreement substantially in the form utilized by the Company for the most recent grants of PSUs to its executive officers, (ii) immediately vest on January 21, 2021 in one-third of the restricted stock units (“RSUs”) granted to him on January 21, 2020, with the remaining portion of such award being forfeited and (iii) be eligible to receive up to 18 months’ of COBRA continuation coverage for himself and his dependents and reimbursement of monthly premiums. The Transition Agreement also provides that Mr. Fusfield will remain eligible to exercise his stock options granted to him on March 26, 2019 for a period of only 30 days following the termination of his employment.

Each of the payments and benefits set forth above is subject to Mr. Fusfield’s continued compliance with the terms and conditions of the Transition Agreement and all of his continuing restrictive covenant obligations, including those concerning confidentiality, mutual non-disparagement, assignment of intellectual property, non-competition and non-solicitation of customers, suppliers and employees.

The foregoing is not a complete description of the parties’ rights and obligations under the Transition Agreement and is qualified by reference to the full text and terms of the agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this report and incorporated herein by reference.


Item 7.01
