Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.


On June 28, 2018, upon recommendation of the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Compensation Committee”) of ADMA Biologics, Inc. (the “Company”), the Board of Directors (the “Board”) approved, retroactive to January 1, 2018, the following increases in annual base salary for the Company’s named executive officers as set forth in the table below:


Name Position Annual Base Salary, Retroactive to January 1, 2018
Adam S. Grossman

President, Chief Executive

Officer and Director



Dr. James Mond

Executive Vice President,

Chief Scientific Officer

and Chief Medical Officer



Brian Lenz

Executive Vice President and 

Chief Financial Officer



As previously disclosed by the Company in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 15, 2018, the Compensation Committee and the Board agreed to revisit the named executive officers’ annual base salaries following the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.


The raises in base salary for the Company’s named executive officers were approved in order to compensate such individuals at the 50th percentile of the Company’s approved peer group as determined by the independent compensation consultant of the Compensation Committee. The data obtained by the Company’s independent compensation consultants was measured against a group of peer companies chosen following the Company’s acquisition of the Biotest Therapy Business Unit. At the time of the acquisition, it was determined by the Board that no salary increases were to be granted until the Company made progress with its integration and remediation activities. Prior to this increase, the Company’s named executive officers last received raises in January 2016.







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 hereunto duly authorized.
