On July 21, 2016, Mihir Shah was appointed as Chief Financial Officer of Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. (“AMEH”), Apollo Medical Management, Inc. (“AMM”), and their respective subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, the “Company”). Mr. Shah previously served as the Company’s accounting consultant from March 2016 through July 20, 2016.


From April 2015 to February 2016, Mr. Shah served as Chief Financial Officer of Unitek Information Systems, Inc., a private equity-backed company that offers nursing, allied health and information technology training programs.  From April 2013 to March 2015, he was Vice President and Controller of Health Essentials, LLC, a private equity-backed healthcare organization that provides post-acute care and hospice/palliative care services to the frail and elderly population in California. Mr. Shah was employed at Arcadian Health Plan from December 2005 through March 2013, serving as its Vice President Finance and Analytics from January 2010 through March 2013, Senior Director of Finance and Analytics from January 2008 through December 2009, and Senior Financial Analyst from December 2005 through December 2007. He is a Certified Public Accountant and received a Master of Commerce-Cost Accounting from Gujarat University in Ahmedabad, India.


On July 21, 2016, AMM and Mr. Shah entered into an employment agreement (the “Shah Employment Agreement”), which was approved by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of AMEH (the “Compensation Committee”). Pursuant to the Shah Employment Agreement, Mr. Shah will serve as Chief Financial Officer of the Company, for which services he shall be paid an annual base salary of $260,000. The base salary may be re-evaluated annually at the sole discretion of AMM and may be increased in the sole discretion of AMM. In addition, Mr. Shah shall be entitled to participate in any Company incentive compensation plans as are now available or may become available to other similarly positioned employees of the Company and/or receive a cash bonus that may be decided by the Compensation Committee, in its sole and absolute discretion. Moreover, Mr. Shah shall be eligible to participate in any equity incentive plan available to similarly positioned executives. From time to time, the Compensation Committee may, in its sole and absolute discretion, grant stock options or award other equity compensation to Mr. Shah.


Mr. Shah shall be entitled to fifteen (15) days of paid time off per calendar year, which time shall be accrued ratably during the calendar year. Mr. Shah shall be entitled to reimbursement of expenses incurred on behalf of the Company, including travel and related per diem expenses, consistent with the Company’s policies and, in all cases, subject to proper documentation maintained and submitted by Mr. Shah. Mr. Shah is eligible to receive benefits available to the Company’s employees generally and coverage by directors’ and officers’ liability insurance, and he is subject to standard tax withholding provisions.


The term of the Shah Employment Agreement commenced on July 21, 2016 (the “Commencement Date”) and continues for a period of two years. The term of the Shah Employment Agreement shall automatically be extended for subsequent one year terms, renewing on each respective anniversary of the Commencement Date (each, a “Renewal Date”), unless, not less than 90 days prior to each such Renewal Date, either party shall have given notice to the other that the Shah Employment Agreement will not be renewed.


Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Shah Employment Agreement shall terminate in the event of death, disability, termination by the Company or termination by Mr. Shah. In the event of termination for cause (as defined in the Shah Employment Agreement) or non-renewal of the term, the Company shall pay Mr. Shah any accrued but unpaid salary through the date of termination or the end of the term, as the case may be. In the event of a termination by the Company without cause or termination by Mr. Shah for good reason (as defined in the Shah Employment Agreement), the Company shall pay Mr. Shah an amount equal to four weeks of Mr. Shah’s most recent base salary for every full year of his active employment, but such amount shall be no less than six months’ worth nor more than twelve months’ worth of his most recent base salary.


The Shah Employment Agreement also contains provisions that are customary for an agreement of this type, including covenants regarding confidentiality and non-solicitation, a prohibition on other employment during the term and dispute resolution.
