As a result of the Resignation, the size of the Board was decreased from nine (9) to eight (8) members.
In connection with the Resignation, Mr. Piccone and the Company entered into a Separation Agreement and Release (the Separation Agreement) dated January 1, 2018. The Separation Agreement becomes irrevocable on January 9, 2018. The material terms of the Separation Agreement, including compensation payable thereunder and treatment of long-term incentive (LTI) awards, are consistent with Mr. Piccones Employment Agreement with the Company dated January 1, 2017 (the Employment Agreement) and Mr. Piccones various LTI award agreements.
