If within one year following a change in control, as defined in the Agreement, the Company terminates Mr. McCarthy’s employment without cause or if he terminates his employment for good reason, he will be entitled to receive an amount equal to one times his then current annual base salary.

In addition, all previously unvested equity awards granted to him will immediately vest and become fully exercisable as of the date of termination for a period of 90 days and Mr. McCarthy and his family will be covered under the Company’s health benefit plans for twelve months following termination.

In consideration of the terms above, Mr. McCarthy has agreed not to compete with the Company for a period of twelve months following his termination. The Agreement also contain provisions related to return of Company property, non-disclosure of Company confidential information and other restrictive covenants related to non-solicitation of Company employees, agents and customers.

The Agreement has a term of one year that automatically renews from year to year, unless either Mr. McCarthy or the Company provides 30 days written notice of non-renewal prior to the expiration of the initial or extended term.

This description of the Agreement is a summary of the material terms of the Agreement and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 which is incorporated herein by reference.
