In addition, Mr. DeVeydt is eligible to earn an annual bonus with a target amount equal to 70% of Mr. DeVeydt’s base salary, with the amount of such bonus to be determined by the Board or the Compensation Committee based on the achievement of performance goals established by the Board or the Compensation Committee. The Employment Agreement also entitles Mr. DeVeydt to participate in Company employee benefit programs for which senior executives of the Company are generally eligible, subject to the eligibility and participation requirements thereof. In addition, until Mr. DeVeydt secures a residence within a reasonable commuting distance to the Company’s headquarters, he will be entitled to reimbursement of reasonable, customary and actual temporary living expenses in accordance with the Company’s policies as in effect from time to time and subject to such reasonable substantiation and documentation as may be requested by the Company.

The Restricted Stock Award will vest as to one-third of the award on each of the first three anniversaries of the date of grant, generally subject to continued employment on each vesting date. The Restricted Stock Award will vest in full upon a termination of Mr. DeVeydt’s employment by the Company without “Cause” (as such term is defined in the Employment Agreement) or resignation by Mr. DeVeydt for “Good Reason” (as such term is defined in the Employment Agreement), in either case within 90 days prior to and 18 months following a change in control.  The Restricted Stock Award will also vest in full upon a change of control if the award is not assumed, continued, or substituted for a new award by an acquiror or survivor (or, in either case, an affiliate thereof).

·                   A leveraged performance unit award (the “ LPU Award ”) with a target number of units equal to 59,206 shares of Common Stock.  The award is eligible to be earned based on the compound annual growth rate (“ CAGR ”) of the Company’s total stockholder return (“ TSR ”), considered both alone and relative to that of the companies that make up the S&P Composite 1500 Health Care Companies, over a three-year performance period.  The number of shares issuable under such award will be determined based on the level at which the goals are achieved and can range from 0% of the shares subject to the award to a maximum of 500% of such shares (or eight times the grant date fair value of the award, if less).  The portion of the LPU Award that becomes earned, if any, following completion of the performance period (the “ earned award ”) vests as to one-third of the award on each of the performance period end date and the first two anniversaries of the performance period end date.  Vesting of the LPU Award is generally subject to continued employment on each vesting date.  The earned award will vest in full upon a termination of Mr. DeVeydt’s employment by the Company without “Cause” or resignation by Mr. DeVeydt for “Good Reason,” in either case within 90 days prior to and 18 months following a change in control.

Pursuant to the Employment Agreement, Mr. DeVeydt is bound by certain restrictive covenants, including non-competition and non-solicitation restrictions for a period of 18 months following the termination of his employment. The Employment Agreement includes certain other customary terms, including with respect to protection of confidential information and documents, assignment of intellectual property rights, reimbursement of business expenses, and director and officer indemnification and insurance coverage.  In addition, the Employment Agreement provides that the time condition of any equity awards granted to Mr. DeVeydt under the Incentive Plan will automatically become satisfied upon a change of control if BCPE Seminole Holdings LP and its affiliates transfer their controlling interest in the Company to another private equity firm.

 

Upon the effectiveness of his appointment as Chief Executive Officer of the Company, Mr. DeVeydt entered into the Company’s standard form of indemnification agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.14 to Amendment No. 1 to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 filed on September 14, 2015.
