NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the mutual covenants and agreements contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereto, intending to be legally bound hereby, agree as follows:
1. Board Matters and Related Agreements.
(a) Board Matters. Pursuant to the Plan, at the effective time of the Plan, the terms of all of the current members of the Board (the "Current Directors") shall expire. Immediately following such expiration, and pursuant to the Plan, the size of the Board will be set at nine (9) directors and will include the following members: (i) Steven R. Becker, (ii) four (4) directors selected from the Current Directors to be mutually agreed upon by the Current Directors, the Osmium Group and the Equity Committee (together with Steven R. Becker, the "Continuing Directors"), (iii) three (3) directors selected by the Osmium Group (the "Osmium Directors ") and (iv) one director selected by the Equity Committee (the "EC Director"). Each of the Continuing Directors, the Osmium Directors and the EC Director shall be determined pursuant to the foregoing, subject to completion of the Company’s standard on-boarding procedures (including background and conflicts checks) satisfactory to the Company, and shall be named in the plan supplement, which is that certain compilation of documents and forms of documents, agreements, schedules, and exhibits to the Plan as further detailed in the Plan (the "Plan Supplement"), to the extent known at the time of filing the Plan Supplement. The Board shall take all necessary actions to nominate the Continuing Directors, the Osmium Directors and the EC Director for election at the 2021 annual meeting of stockholders (the "2021 Annual Meeting"). In the event that, prior to the 2021 Annual Meeting, (x) any of the Osmium Directors or the EC Director are unable to serve as a director, resigns as a director or are removed, the Osmium Group or the Equity Committee, as the case may be, shall have the right to recommend a replacement director to the Board, and (y) any of the Continuing Directors are unable to serve as a director, resign as a director or are removed, the Continuing Directors, after reasonable consultation with the Osmium Group and the Equity Committee, shall have the right to recommend a replacement director to the Board, and the Board shall appoint such recommended replacement director in each of (x) and (y) to the Board. The Board will recommend, support and solicit proxies for the election of the Osmium Directors and the EC Director in the same manner as for any other nominees of the Company at the 2021 Annual Meeting.
(b) Triggering Event. Upon the occurrence of a "Triggering Event" (as defined below), the Board shall take all necessary action to increase the size of the Board to ten (10) directors, and the Osmium Group shall have the right to appoint one (1) additional director. A "Triggering Event" means (i) EBIT (as defined below) is below 70% of the EBIT projections for calendar year 2021, fiscal years 2022 or 2023 as set forth in the Company projections filed with the Bankruptcy Court on November 18, 2020 in the Plan (the "EBIT Test") or (ii) total Company Availability (as defined below) is below the greater of (x) $25 million and (y) 22.5% of the Line Cap (as defined below) (the "Availability Threshold"). "EBIT" shall mean the earnings of the Company before interest and taxes. A Triggering Event relating to the EBIT Test shall be measured based upon a review of the Company's financial results filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. “Availability” and “Line Cap” shall have the meanings ascribed to them in that certain Senior Secured Super Priority Debtor-in-Possession Credit Agreement dated as of May 29, 2020 by and among the Company, Tuesday Morning, Inc., TMI Holdings, Inc., JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, Well Fargo Bank, N.A., as syndication agent, and the lenders party thereto. A Triggering Event relating to the Availability Threshold shall only exist if the Availability Threshold is met for 30 (thirty) consecutive calendar days. The Company agrees to provide the Osmium Group and its representatives with such information as it reasonably requests in order for the Osmium Group to determine and verify whether a Triggering Event has occurred.
(c) Committees. At least one (1) Osmium Director shall be appointed to each committee of the Board. Each of the Nominating and Governance and Compensation Committees of the Board shall be comprised of four members, two (2) Osmium Directors selected by the Osmium Group and two (2) Continuing Directors selected by the Continuing Directors. One of the Osmium Directors on each of the Nominating and Governance and Compensation Committees shall be entitled to serve as the chairperson of such committees.
(d) Voting. Subject to applicable law, (i) all Board action shall be taken by majority vote of all directors present and (ii) all transactions involving the Osmium Group that have been approved by the Bankruptcy Court may be voted upon by the Osmium Directors, provided, however, that, with respect to any transaction involving a conflict of interest, the conflicted director may recuse himself or vote in his discretion after informing the Board of the conflict in accordance with any Company conflict of interest policies.
(e) Additional Agreements.
(i) Each member of the Osmium Group agrees that it will cause its controlled Affiliates and controlled Associates to comply with the terms of this Agreement and shall be responsible for any breach of this Agreement by any such controlled Affiliate or Associate. As used in this Agreement, the terms "Affiliate" and "Associate" shall have the respective meanings set forth in Rule 12b-2 promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the rules or regulations promulgated thereunder (the "Exchange Act") and shall include all persons or entities that at any time during the term of this Agreement become Affiliates or Associates of any person or entity referred to in this Agreement.
(ii) Each member of the Osmium Group agrees that it will appear in person or by proxy at the 2021 Annual Meeting and vote all shares of Common Stock of the Company beneficially owned by the Osmium Group at such meeting (x) in favor of the election of the director nominees recommended by the Board, (y) in favor of all proposals submitted to the Company's stockholders that are recommended by the Board, and (z) against all proposals submitted to the Company's stockholders that are not recommended by the Board; provided, however, that to the extent that the recommendation of both Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. ("ISS") and Glass Lewis & Co., LLC ("Glass Lewis") differs from the Board's recommendation with respect to any matter other than nominees for election as directors to the Board, the Osmium Group shall have the right to vote in accordance with the recommendation of ISS and Glass Lewis with respect to such matters.
(iii) Prior to appointment to the Board, and in a form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Company, the Osmium Directors and the EC Director will promptly submit to the Company (i) a completed copy of the Company's standard director & officer questionnaire and (ii) a written acknowledgement that the Osmium Directors and the EC Director agree to comply in all material respects with all policies, codes and guidelines applicable to all directors of the Company, including those regarding confidentiality, as such may be amended from time to time.

(v) Each of the Osmium Directors and the EC Director shall be compensated for his or her services as a director and shall be reimbursed for his or her expenses on the same basis as all other non-employee directors of the Company and shall be eligible to be granted equity-based compensation on the same basis as all other non-employee directors of the Company.
(vi) Each of the Osmium Directors and the EC Director shall be entitled to the same rights of indemnification and directors’ and officers’ liability insurance coverage as the other non-employee directors of the Company as such rights may exist from time to time, including entering into the Company’s standard form of indemnification agreement with each of the Osmium Directors and the EC Director.
