On July 18, 2014, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of BioScrip, Inc. (the "Company") appointed Thomas Pettit as Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company.

In connection with the appointment of Mr. Pettit, the Company and Mr. Pettit entered into an offer letter (the "Offer Letter") dated as of July 18, 2014. The terms of the Offer Letter provide for the employment of Mr. Pettit as the Company's Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at an initial base annual salary of $415,000, which may be increased (but not decreased) at the discretion of the Board.

Under the Offer Letter, Mr. Pettit will be granted options to purchase 200,000 shares of the Company's common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the "Common Stock"), which will vest in three equal amounts at the rate of one-third per year, pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in the BioScrip, Inc.
