Dear Scott:

Luminar Technologies is very pleased to offer you the transition of your current position of independent contractor to a full-time employee position effective January 1, 2017. Your job title will be Chief Business Officer and your service as a contractor will bridge so that your date of hire for purposes of vesting and service tracking will be 9/1/2016. This is a full-time exempt position based in our Orlando, FL facility and reporting to Austin Russell, CEO.

Your annual base salary of $300,000 will be paid bi-weekly, and is subject to required tax withholdings, and additional elected healthcare benefits. You will also receive a onetime payment of $137,000 per the execution of this agreement.

Luminar Technologies, Inc. is excited about your transition to an employee of our company and is pleased to have previously granted you 60,000 shares of Luminar Technologies, Inc.

This grant shall be subject to the terms and conditions of Luminar Technologies, Inc.’s Stock Plan and Restricted Stock Purchase Agreement.
