Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On December 4, 2013, GrowLife, Inc. (the "Company") entered into an Employment Agreement with Marco Hegyi pursuant to which the Company engaged Mr. Hegyi as its President from 4, 2013 through December 4, 2016 to provide consulting and management services. Per the terms of the Hegyi Agreement, Mr. Hegyi will establish a Company in Seattle, Washington while also maintaining operations in the Southern California area. Mr. Hegyi's annual compensation is $150,000 for the first year of the Term; $250,000 for the second year of the Term; and $250,000 for the third year of the Term. Mr. Hegyi is also entitled to receive an annual bonus equal to four percent (4%) of the Company's EBITDA for that year. The annual bonus shall be paid no later than 31 days (i.e., by January 31st) following the end of each calendar year. Mr. Hegyi's first annual bonus will be calculated based on the Company's EBITDA for calendar year 2014, with such bonus payable on or before January 31, 2015. If Mr. Hegyi's employment is terminated for any reason prior to the expiration of the Term, as applicable, his annual bonus will be prorated for that year based on the number of days worked in that year. At the commencement of Mr. Hegyi's employment, or affiliated entity received a Warrant to purchase up to 25,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company at an exercise price of $0.08 per share. The Hegyi Warrant is exercisable for 10 years.

Mr. Hegyi will be entitled to participate in all group employment benefits that are offered by the Company to the Company's senior executives and management employees from time to time, subject to the terms and conditions of such benefit plans, including any eligibility requirements. In addition, the Company will purchase and maintain during the Term a "key manager" insurance policy on Mr. Hegyi's life in the amount of $4,000,000, paid as $2,000,000 payable to Mr. Hegyi's named heirs or estate as the beneficiary, and $2,000,000 payable to the Company. If, prior to the expiration of the Term, the Company terminates Mr. Hegyi's employment for "Cause", or if Mr. Hegyi voluntarily terminates his employment without "Good Reason", or if Mr. Hegyi's employment is terminated by reason of his death, then all of the Company's obligations hereunder shall cease immediately, and Mr. Hegyi will not be entitled to any further compensation beyond any pro-rated base salary due and bonus amounts earned through the effective date of termination. Mr. Hegyi will also be reimbursed for any expenses incurred prior to the date of termination for which he was not previously reimbursed.

If the Company terminates Mr. Hegyi's employment at any time prior to the expiration of the Term without Cause, or if Mr. Hegyi terminates his employment at any time for "Good Reason" or due to a "Disability", Mr. Hegyi will be entitled to receive (i) his base salary amount through the end of the Term; and
(ii) his annual bonus amount for each year during the remainder of the Term, which bonus amount shall be equal to the greater of (A) the annual bonus amount for the immediately preceding year, or (B) the bonus amount that would have been earned for the year of termination, absent such termination. If there has been a "Change in Control" and the Company (or its successor or the surviving entity) terminates Mr. Hegyi's employment without Cause as part of or in connection with such Change in Control (including any such termination occurring within one (1) month prior to the effective date of such Change in Control), then in addition to the benefits set forth above, Mr. Hegyi will be entitled to (i) an increase of $300,000 in his annual base salary amount (or an additional $25,000 per month) through the end of the Term; plus (ii) a gross-up in the annual base salary amount each year to account for and to offset any tax that may be due by Mr. Hegyi on any payments received or to be received by Mr. Hegyi under this Agreement that would result in a "parachute payment" as described in Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. If the Company (or its successor or the surviving entity) terminates Mr. Hegyi's employment without Cause within twelve (12) months after the effective date of any Change in Control, or if Mr. Hegyi terminates his employment for Good Reason within twelve
(12) months after the effective date of any Change in Control, then in addition to the benefits set forth above, Mr. Hegyi will be entitled to (i) an increase of $300,000 in his annual base salary amount (or an additional $25,000 per month), which increased annual base salary amount shall be paid for the remainder of the Term or for two (2) years following the Change in Control, whichever is longer; (ii) a gross-up in the annual base salary amount each year to account for and to offset any tax that may be due by Mr. Hegyi on any payments received or to be received by Mr. Hegyi under this Letter Agreement that would result in a "parachute payment" as described in Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended; (iii) payment of Mr. Hegyi's annual bonus amount as set forth above for each year during the remainder of the Term or for two (2) years following the Change in Control, whichever is longer; and
(iv) health insurance coverage provided for and paid by the Company for the remainder of the Term or for two (2) years following the Change in Control, whichever is longer.
