This Employment Agreement (the “Agreement”) is made as of the 2nd day of March 2022, by and between Minim, Inc. (the “Company”) and John Lauten (the “Executive”).
WHEREAS, the Company and the Executive entered into an employment agreement dated on or about November 1, 2019 (the “2019 Employment Agreement”); and
WHEREAS, the Company and Executive wish to terminate the 2019 Employment Agreement and enter into this Employment Agreement.
In consideration of the Executive’s employment with the Company, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the Company and the Executive agree as follows:
1. Employment. The Company agrees to employ the Executive, and the Executive agrees to be employed by the Company, on the terms and conditions set forth below. The Executive shall be employed under this Agreement on an at-will basis for an indefinite period of time, and the Executive or the Company may terminate the employment relationship with or without notice at any time and for any or no reason or cause in accordance with the terms of Section 5 hereof. The Company is not bound to follow any policy, procedure, or process in connection with employee discipline, employment termination or otherwise.
2. Duties. The Executive shall serve the Company as Chief Operations Officer. In such capacity, the Executive shall be subject to the direction of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. The Executive shall perform the duties outlined on Exhibit A hereto and such other services and duties in connection with the Company as may be assigned or delegated to the Executive from time to time by or under the authority of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer.
3. Compensation and Benefits. The regular compensation and benefits payable to the Executive under this Agreement shall be as follows:
(a) Salary. For all services rendered by the Executive under this Agreement, the Company shall pay the Executive a base salary at the annualized rate of Two Hundred Eighteen Thousand Dollars ($218,000.00) (“Base Salary”) per year effective January 1, 2022, pro-rated for any partial year in which this Agreement is in effect. The Executive’s performance may be reviewed by the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Compensation Committee”) from time to time, and the Company may adjust the Executive’s salary pursuant to such performance reviews or for other reasons; provided, that, in no case shall Executive’s Base Salary be decreased below the amount set forth herein without the prior written consent of Executive. The Executive’s salary shall be payable in equal installments in connection with the Company’s regular payroll dates and payroll procedures.
(b) Bonus Opportunity. The Executive shall be eligible to receive a performance based variable compensation bonus of up to Seventy-Five Thousand Dollars ($75,000) (the “Initial Performance Based Variable Bonus”), based on your achievement of specific work product, attainment of specific goals, and elements of overall Company financial performance, determined and paid quarterly in the second month after the close of each fiscal quarter in which it is earned according to the Company’s fiscal year. Executive’s Initial Performance Based Variable Bonus shall be reviewed on not less than an annual basis by the Compensation Committee. Initial Performance Based Variable Bonus will be weighted as follows: (i) 20% for first fiscal quarter performance, (ii) 20% for second fiscal quarter performance, (iii) 20% for third fiscal quarter performance and (iv) 40% for annual fiscal year. Executive must be employed with the Company to be eligible for and to receive any variable compensation pursuant to this section. Executive’s Initial Performance Based Variable Bonus shall be reviewed on not less than an annual basis by the Compensation Committee. Executive’s eligibility for up to an annual bonus target of the Initial Performance Based Variable Bonus may not be decreased below the Initial Performance Based Variable Bonus target without the prior written consent of Executive but nothing herein guarantees payment of the Initial Performance Based Variable Bonus.
(c) RSU Grants. Executive shall be eligible to be considered for an annual restricted stock award grant subject to the discretion of the Compensation Committee and in accordance with the Company’s long-term incentive program. The Executive was granted $50,000 of RSU’s for fiscal year 2021.
(d) Benefits. The Executive shall be eligible to participate in all employee benefit, health and welfare, 401(k), profit sharing and other plans, policies and programs which the Company may, from time to time, have in effect for all or most employees of the Company. Executive shall also be entitled to participate in the Company’s life insurance policy benefit applicable to executives. Such participation shall be subject to the terms of the applicable plan documents, generally applicable policies of the Company, applicable law, and the discretion of the Company or any administrative or other committee provided for in, or contemplated by, any such plan. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed to create any obligation on the part of the Company to establish any such plan or to maintain the effectiveness of any such plan which may be in effect from time to time. To the extent there is any conflict between the terms of this Agreement and the applicable benefit plan documents, the terms of the plan documents shall govern. Executive shall also be entitled to upgrade their smart phone and computer to the most recent generation available from Apple once every two years.
(e) Vacation. The Company will be adopting an unlimited vacation policy, pursuant to which covered employees do not accrue any paid vacation time, but rather, will be able to take vacation time in their reasonable discretion, subject to Company approval and meeting the Company’s performance expectations. Once the Company adopts and implements that policy, the Executive will be covered by it and subject to its terms. Until that policy is adopted, the Executive will not accrue any vacation time, but rather will be permitted (with Company approval) to take vacation time in the Executive’s reasonable discretion. Because vacation time does not accrue for the Executive (either before adoption of the unlimited vacation time policy or after adoption of that policy), there is no payout of vacation time upon the termination of the Executive’s employment.
(f) Expense Reimbursement. The Company will reimburse the Executive on a monthly basis for all normal and reasonable business expenses incurred by the Executive in the course of performing the Executive’s duties for the Company hereunder, provided the Executive timely and properly completes and submits an expense report and any other appropriate documentation to the Company, as may be required in accordance with the policies in effect from time to time for Company employees. Domestic and international travel will be in accordance with the Company’s travel policy and/or normal business travel for other executives. For any international non-stop airline flight greater than six (6) hours, Executive is entitled to Business Class accommodations.
4. Extent of Service. During the Executive’s employment hereunder, the Executive shall devote the Executive’s full business time, best efforts and business judgment, skill and knowledge to the advancement of the Company’s interests and to the discharge of the Executive’s duties and responsibilities hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Executive may engage in any outside business activities in which the Executive is engaged as of the date hereof, and the Executive may engage in other business activities in the future provided: (i) such activities are not for or with a competitor of the Company; (ii) such activities do not create a conflict of interest with respect to the Executive’s employment with the Company; (iii) such activities do not interfere with the Executive’s performance of the Executive’s job duties for the Company; (iv) the Executive notifies the Company in writing in advance of engaging in such activities; and (v) the Company’s Chief Executive Officer authorizes the Executive to engage in such activities (which such authorization will not be unreasonably withheld).

(a) Termination by the Company. The Executive’s employment hereunder may be terminated by the Company for Cause without further liability on the part of the Company, effective immediately, upon written notice to the Executive. Cause shall have the meaning assigned to it in the Severance Agreement.

(d) Death. The Executive’s employment with the Company shall terminate immediately upon the death of the Executive.

6. Litigation and Regulatory Cooperation. The Executive shall cooperate fully with the Company in the defense or prosecution of any claims or actions now in existence or which may be brought in the future against or on behalf of the Company which relate to events or occurrences that transpired while the Executive is employed by the Company. The Executive’s full cooperation in connection with such claims or actions shall include, but not be limited to, being available to meet with counsel to prepare for discovery or trial and to act as a witness on behalf of the Company at mutually convenient times. The Executive shall also cooperate fully with the Company in connection with any examination or review of any federal, state or local regulatory authority as any such examination or review relates to events or occurrences that transpired while the Executive was employed by the Company. The Company will reimburse the Executive for any reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with such cooperation. Executive will be protected under the Company’s Director’s and Officers (D&O) liability insurance.

At all times, both during the Executive’s employment with the Company and after its termination, the Executive will keep in confidence and trust all such Proprietary Information, and will not use or disclose any such Proprietary Information without the written consent of the Company, except as may be necessary in the ordinary course of performing the Executive’s duties to the Company. The Executive understands that the restrictions contained in this paragraph extend to and expressly prohibit disclosure of Proprietary Information through social media. The restrictions set forth in this Section 7(c) will not apply to information which is generally known to the public or in the trade, unless such knowledge results from an unauthorized disclosure by the Executive, but this exception will not affect the application of any other provision of this Agreement to such information in accordance with the terms of such provision.
(d) Documents, Records, Etc. All documents, records, apparatus, equipment, photography and other physical property, whether or not pertaining to Proprietary Information, which are furnished to the Executive by the Company or are produced by the Executive in connection with the Executive’s employment will be and remain the sole property of the Company.

(i) Injunctive Relief/Attorneys’ Fees.

If any obligation of the Executive’s under Section 7 of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable because of the duration of such obligation or the geographic area covered, the court making such determination shall have the power to reduce the duration and/or geographic area of such provision, and in its modified form such provision shall be enforceable.

The arbitrator’s rulings and awards shall be final and binding upon the Parties and judgment thereon may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Unless otherwise ordered by the arbitrator, the Company and Executive shall each pay an equal share of the fees and expenses; of the arbitrator and of the AAA.
20. Section 409A. The provisions of this Agreement are intended not to result in the imposition of additional tax or interest under Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code, and such provisions shall be interpreted and administered in accordance with such intent. Without limiting the foregoing, this Agreement shall not be amended or terminated in a manner so as to result in the imposition of such tax or interest, any reference to “termination of employment” or similar term shall mean an event that constitutes a “separation from service” or “involuntary separation from service” (as the case may be) within the meaning of Section 409A, any reimbursement of expenses shall occur no later than the end of the calendar year following the calendar year in which the expense is incurred (or such earlier date as applies under the Company’s business expense reimbursement policy) and reimbursements in one year shall not affect the amount of reimbursement available in any subsequent year.
