Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Ali, age 43, most recently served as Chief Financial Officer of Vision Technologies LLC since August 2022. Prior to Vision Technologies LLC, Mr. Ali held numerous leadership positions in finance, serving as Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Finance of BayWa-R.E Solar from October 2022 to July 2023, Chief Financial Officer, General Manager and Vice President of GreenFox Services from July 2019 to January 2022 and Regional Finance Controller for Operational Finance of Amazon.com, Inc. from March 2016 to July 2019.

In connection with Mr. Ali’s appointment, the Company entered into an offer letter (the “Offer Letter”) pursuant to which Mr. Ali will receive (i) an annual base salary of $325,000, (ii) a target bonus opportunity of 25% of his annual base salary based on individual and Company performance, (iii) a one-time grant of restricted stock units with an aggregate grant date value of approximately $75,000, vesting in equal annual installments over three years, (iv) reimbursement by the Company of up to $20,000 for reasonable and customary expenses incurred by Mr. Ali for his relocation within the first four months of employment with the Company and (v) eligibility to participate in the Company’s long-term incentive program and other employee benefits and paid time off policies.

In addition to accrued obligations owed to Mr. Ali upon his termination of employment for any or no reason, the Offer Letter also provides for the following severance benefits (the “Severance Benefits”) upon Mr. Ali’s termination of employment: (i) if Mr. Ali’s employment is terminated by his death or disability, Mr. Ali will be entitled to receive any earned but unpaid annual bonus for the completed fiscal year prior to the year of termination and a pro-rata portion of his annual bonus for the fiscal year of termination, (ii) if Mr. Ali’s employment is terminated by the Company without “Cause” or by Mr. Ali’s resignation for “Good Reason” (each as defined in the Offer Letter), Mr. Ali will be entitled to receive continued payment of his base salary for a period of six months and any earned but unpaid annual bonuses for the completed fiscal year prior to the year of termination. Receipt of the Severance Benefits is conditioned on Mr. Ali’s execution and non-revocation of a general release of claims in favor of the Company and continued compliance with any restrictive covenants applicable to him.

There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Ali and any other person pursuant to which Mr. Ali was appointed. There are no family relationships between Mr. Ali and any director or executive officer of the Company, and he has no interest in any transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
