Appointment of Mark M. Anderson as Director


On October 22, 2018, Mark M. Anderson was appointed as a member of the board of directors (the “Board”) of EVO Transportation & Energy Services, Inc. (the “Company”). Mr. Anderson is expected to serve as chair of the audit committee of the Board upon formation of the audit committee. Simultaneously with the appointment of Mr. Anderson, the Board took action to increase the number of directors constituting the entire Board to seven directors pursuant to the Company’s bylaws. There are no related party transactions involving Mr. Anderson that are reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.


In connection with his appointment to the Board, the Company granted stock options to purchase 100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock to Mr. Anderson. The options are exercisable at a price of $2.50 per share, which the Board determined was the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the grant date. 25% of the options vested on the grant date, and the remaining options vest in equal annual installments on the first, second and third anniversary of the grant date. However, all unvested options vest immediately upon the Company’s closing on an aggregate of at least $30,000,000 in any combination of public and private equity and debt financings after the grant date.


Appointment of New Chairman


Also on October 22, 2018, Scott Honour, Chairman of the Board, informed the Board of his decision to step down from his role as Chairman, effective immediately. In connection with Mr. Honour’s resignation as Chairman, the Board appointed Thomas Abood, a member of the Board, as Chairman of the Board, effective October 22, 2018. Mr. Honour will remain on the Board.


Appointment of Damon Cuzick as President


As previously disclosed, on September 5, 2018, the Company appointed John Sheehy as chief operating officer of the Company. In connection with Mr. Sheehy’s appointment as chief operating officer, Damon Cuzick resigned as chief operating officer of the Company and the Company appointed Mr. Cuzick as president of the Company, both effective as of September 5, 2018. The information required by Items 401(b), (d), (e) and Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K with respect to Mr. Cuzick is included in Amendment 1 to the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 30, 2018.
