Note 19 Subsequent Event
On October 20, 2008, Wendy F. DiCicco, C.P.A, the Chief Financial Officer of the Company, submitted her resignation to pursue other opportunities. Ms. DiCiccos resignation as Chief Financial Officer (as which she served as both the principal financial officer and principal accounting officer of the Company) will be effective on November 15, 2008.
On October 27, 2008, the Companys Board of Directors designated Ryan D. Lake, C.P.A, who is the Companys Director of Finance, to assume the additional roles of the Companys principal financial officer and principal accounting officer, until the Board of Directors appoints a new Chief Financial Officer. During this interim period, Mr. Lake will report directly to the Companys President and Chief Executive Officer, Joseph W. Kaufmann.
Ms. DiCiccos resignation does not entitle her to receive any severance benefits under her employment agreement with the Company. However, the Company, in order to retain certain enhanced restrictive covenants, as well as to obtain a repayment provision for violation of any such covenants and a general release of claims, entered into a Separation and General Release Agreement (the Agreement) with Ms. DiCicco. Among other things, the Agreement provides for (1) a cash severance payment equal to $223,800, less applicable withholdings, to be paid over a period of 12 months; (2) a lump sum bonus payment equal to $51,200 to be paid no later than November 30, 2008; (3) accelerated vesting of options to purchase 16,000 shares of the Companys common stock; and (4) exercisability of all the options, including the accelerated options, held by Ms. DicCicco (for a total of 53,000 shares of the Companys Common Stock) for a period of 12 months following her termination. Pursuant to the Agreement, Ms. DiCicco will be subject to one-year non-competition and non-solicitation provisions, in addition to certain other restrictive covenants.
