Mr. Neely holds a B.A. in economics from Whitman College, WA and an MBA in finance and marketing from the University of Chicago.
There are no family relationships among Mr. Neely and any of our directors or executive officers and, other than as set forth herein, there are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Neely and any other persons pursuant to which Mr. Neely was appointed as an executive officer of the Company. There have been no transactions or proposed transactions regarding Mr. Neely that are required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K. In connection with his appointment, Mr. Neely and the Company entered into an offer of employment letter that became effective on the Effective Date, which provides that Mr. Neely will (i) receive base salary of $285,000 (prorated for any partial year of service); (ii) be eligible to participate in the Company's executive management incentive bonus program, as described in the Company's Proxy Statement for the 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, with the target bonus of 40% of his base salary (prorated for any partial year of service);
(iii) be granted, upon approval of the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the "Committee"), an option to purchase 210,000 shares of the Company's common stock at a per share exercise price equal to the closing price of a share of common stock on the date of grant, which will vest as to 25% of the shares on the first anniversary of the Effective Date, with the remaining 75% to vest and become exercisable in equal monthly installments over the next three years, subject to Mr. Neely's continued employment with the Company and compliance with the terms of the stock option agreement through each vesting date; (iv) be granted, upon approval of the Committee, 40,000 shares of the Company's restricted stock, which will vest as to 25% of the shares on each of the first, second, third and fourth anniversaries of the Effective Date, subject to Mr. Neely's continued employment with the Company and compliance with the terms of the restricted stock agreement through each vesting date. Pursuant to the terms of Mr. Neely's offer of employment letter, the Company and Mr. Neely intend to enter into a change in control severance agreement (the "CIC Severance Agreement") under which Mr. Neely will be entitled to certain payments and benefits upon a qualifying termination of employment. Pursuant to his CIC Severance Agreement, if, on or after the first anniversary of the Effective Date, Mr. Neely's employment is terminated by the Company other than for "cause" or by Mr. Neely for "good reason" (each as defined in the CIC Severance Agreement) on or within the one-month period preceding, or the one-year period following, a "change in control" (as defined in the CIC Severance Agreement), Mr. Neely will be entitled to receive, in addition to any accrued but unpaid salary, bonus, vacation and expense reimbursement, (i) accelerated vesting of all equity compensation then held by him (to the extent then unvested); (ii) a lump sum payment equal to the sum of his annual base salary and target annual bonus; and (iii) Company-paid premiums for COBRA continuation coverage for up to twelve months following the date of termination. If, on or after the first anniversary of the Effective Date, Mr. Neely's employment is terminated by the Company other than for "cause" or by Mr. Neely for "good reason" at any time other than the period beginning one month preceding and ending one year following a "change in control," Mr. Neely will be entitled to receive, in addition to any accrued but unpaid salary, bonus, vacation and expense reimbursement, (i) a lump sum payment equal to six months of his annual base salary; and (ii) Company-paid premiums for COBRA continuation coverage for up to six months following the date of termination. Mr. Neely's right to receive the severance payments described above is subject to his
