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


On January 31, 2024, L. Mary Smith, the Company’s Chief Development Officer, notified SpringWorks Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) that she will be resigning due to the demands of her caretaker role in connection with a family member’s illness, effective January 31, 2024 (the “Effective Date”). Dr. Smith’s resignation as Chief Development Officer of the Company is not the result of any dispute or disagreement with the Company or the Board, or any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.


In connection with her resignation, Dr. Smith and the Company entered into a Separation and Consulting Agreement (the “Separation and Consulting Agreement”) pursuant to which Dr. Smith will act as Senior Strategic Advisor to the Company, effective as of the day immediately following the Effective Date. The Company has agreed to pay Dr. Smith an hourly rate of $300 for providing such advisory services and reimburse for reasonable expenses. Pursuant to the Consulting and Separation Agreement, the Company will also provide Dr. Smith with certain accrued benefits and severance benefits including, if Dr. Smith was participating in the Company’s group health plan, a monthly cash payment equal to the Company's monthly contribution to Dr. Smith's group health plan coverage for the shorter of six (6) months and Dr. Smith’s COBRA continuation period. The Consulting and Separation Agreement provides for customary general releases and waivers of claims by Dr. Smith against the Company.


The foregoing description of the Consulting and Separation Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Consulting and Separation Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
