References to the exhibits in this Form 8-K/A are references to the exhibits filed with the Original Form 8-K.

Appointment of Chief Financial Officer


Effective July 17, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) has appointed Tucker L. Franciscus as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer.


Mr. Franciscus, age 48, previously served as Chief Financial Officer for Tracker Resource Development III (“Tracker”), a private equity backed oil and gas exploration and production company, from 2011 until 2016, where he was responsible for treasury and equity management, accounting, tax, legal, regulatory, human resources, information technology, and general office and corporate functions. Prior to joining Tracker, Mr. Franciscus served as Chief Financial Officer and Corporate Strategic Advisor to N.A. Petroleum Company, a publicly traded oil and gas exploration and production firm. Mr. Franciscus’ previous experience also includes associate and management roles with investment banking firms Stifel, Nicolaus & Co., Inc., J.P. Morgan & Company, and Deutche Bank, where he focused on domestic and cross-border M&A and corporate finance transactions in the energy sector. Mr. Franciscus is a retired U.S. Army officer, with fifteen years of active and reserve duty service in leadership and staff positions. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Ohio Wesleyan University in 1991, and an MBA from the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business in 1997.


There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Franciscus and any other persons pursuant to which Mr. Franciscus was selected to be an officer of the Company. Mr. Franciscus does not have any family relationships subject to disclosure under Item 401(d) of Regulation S-K or any direct or indirect material interest in any transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.


In connection with his appointment as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, the Company and Mr. Franciscus entered into an Employment Agreement effective July 17, 2017 (the “Franciscus Employment Agreement”). Pursuant to the Franciscus Employment Agreement, Mr. Franciscus will receive an annual base salary of $240,000. In addition, Mr. Franciscus is eligible each year to receive a discretionary bonus in addition to his base salary, which will be awarded in such amounts as the Board will determine. Mr. Franciscus was also granted stock options to purchase 800,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. The exercise price of the stock options is $0.35 per share. The stock options vest in one third installments, the first of which vests on October 15, 2017, the second of which vests on July 17, 2018 and the third of which vests on July 17, 2019, provided that Mr. Franciscus continues to be employed by the Company on those dates.


The Franciscus Employment Agreement provides for severance compensation if Mr. Franciscus is terminated without cause or upon a change of control. The Franciscus Employment Agreement also contains other standard provisions contained in agreements of this nature, including confidentiality and non-competition provisions as well as eligibility for discretionary bonuses and long term incentive awards.


The foregoing description of the Franciscus Employment Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.







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.
