A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The information furnished under Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except to the extent expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

On April 3, 2024, Eric Tiziani, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, resigned from his role as Chief Financial Officer, effective May 6, 2024. The Company intends to appoint Paul Kosturos as Interim Chief Financial Officer of the Company, effective upon the departure of Mr. Tiziani.

Mr. Kosturos, age 58, is a Managing Director at Alvarez & Marsal Private Equity Performance Improvement Group, LLC (“Alvarez & Marsal”), an international professional services firm, where he has worked since 2009.

On April 3, 2024, the Company entered into an engagement letter with Alvarez & Marsal (the “Engagement Letter”) providing for Mr. Kosturos’ service as Interim Chief Financial Officer. Under the terms of the Engagement Letter, during his service at the Company, Mr. Kosturos will continue to be employed by Alvarez & Marsal and will not receive any compensation directly from the Company or participate in any of the Company’s employee benefit plans. The Company will pay a fee to Alvarez & Marsal based on the actual time and materials used for rendering of services, which are estimated to be approximately $38,000 per week, plus reasonable fees and expenses.
