You will be eligible to receive an annual bonus in an amount of up to twenty percent (20%) of your base salary based upon mutually agreed upon objectives.

I will also recommend to the Sonendo Board of Directors that you receive stock options in accordance with Sonendo’s Stock Option Plan.

The company’s scheduled working hours are 8:00a-5:00p (PT), Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. It is of course understood that your role may require you to work outside of scheduled working hours as is customary for your position in the Company.

Upon commencement of your employment you will need to sign the Company’s standard Patent, Copyright and Non-Disclosure Agreement.

Your employment with the Company will be “at will,” which means that either you or the Company may terminate your employment at any time for any reason whatsoever upon thirty (30) days’ written notice. However, in the event that your employment is terminated by the Company without cause or there is a change of control of the Company, you shall be entitled to continue to be compensated by the Company, at your then annual base salary, for a period of twelve (12) months. A determination as to whether or not your employment is being terminated “for cause” shall be made in good faith by the Board.
