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


As previously reported, on September 13, 2020, Immunomedics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Immunomedics”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Gilead Sciences, Inc. In connection with the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, on September 12, 2020, Immunomedics entered into agreements (“Agreements”) with each of Dr. Behzad Aghazadeh, Executive Chairman, Usama Malik, Chief Financial Officer/Chief Business Officer, Brendan Delaney, Chief Commercial Officer and Bryan Ball, Chief Quality Officer (each, a “Covered Executive”). In the event that a Covered Executive receives any payments or benefits that are subject to tax under Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), the Agreements provide that the Covered Executive will receive a payment that puts the Covered Executive in the same after-tax position as though the tax under Section 4999 of the Code did not apply.


The Agreements also revised certain terms of the employment agreements with the Covered Executives, other than Dr. Aghazadeh, who does not have an employment agreement with Immunomedics, including: (1) extending from twelve to eighteen months, the period following a change in control during which a qualifying termination of employment would result in enhanced severance (the “CIC Protection Period”); (2) clarifying that the non-renewal of the employment term during the CIC Protection Period would constitute a qualifying termination of employment, resulting in the receipt of enhanced severance; (3) in the case of Brendan Delaney and Usama Malik, revising the severance provision to include a full year target bonus, rather than a pro-rated target bonus; and (4) clarifying that, during the CIC Protection Period, the severance amount may not be diminished by reducing a Covered Executive’s base salary or target bonus prior to the qualifying termination of employment.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
