On March 17, 2023, Andrew Christiansen informed Cardlytics, Inc. (the “Company”) that he intended to resign from all positions with the Company, including as Chief Financial Officer of the Company, effective as of July 21, 2023 (the “Separation Date”). Mr. Christiansen’s resignation was not the result of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.
In connection with Mr. Christiansen’s resignation, on March 21, 2023, the Company and Mr. Christiansen entered into a Transition Agreement (the “Transition Agreement”), which replaced the prior Amended and Restated Separation Pay Agreement between Mr. Christiansen and the Company, dated as of March 4, 2020. The Transition Agreement provides that Mr. Christiansen shall continue in his role as Chief Financial Officer or otherwise perform duties as requested and authorized by the Company, including cooperating with the Company in effecting a smooth transition of his duties and responsibilities, through the Separation Date (the “Transition Term”). During the Transition Term, the Company will pay Mr. Christiansen $29,166.67 per month. The Transition Agreement further states that upon the completion of the Transition Term, and provided that Mr. Christiansen complies with the Transition Agreement and further executes a separate Release Agreement that contains both a release of claims against the Company and certain restrictive covenants that are binding upon Mr. Christiansen, the Company shall pay Mr. Christiansen a separation payment of $350,000 over a period of 12 months beginning on the Separation Date, and further shall reimburse Mr. Christiansen on a monthly basis for the COBRA premiums actually paid by Mr. Christiansen for up to twelve months following the Separation Date, subject to certain criteria.
The foregoing description of the Transition Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Transition Agreement, which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2023.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
