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

On August 7, 2019, the compensation committee of our board of directors approved and adopted a severance plan for our Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Under the severance plan, if either named executive officer’s employment with NantHealth is terminated for a reason other than cause, then, subject to the Severance Conditions (as defined below), the named executive officer will be entitled to receive the following severance benefits:

A lump-sum payment (less applicable withholdings) equal to 100% of his or her annual base salary (depending on the current position of the executive officer);
A prorated portion of his or her annual target bonus, as in effect immediately before termination, based on the portion of the performance period the named executive officer served; and
Benefits continuation according to NantHealth’s policy for all employees.
To receive the severance benefits, the named executive officer must sign and not revoke a separation and release of claims agreement in a form reasonably satisfactory to NantHealth and be in compliance with any confidentiality, proprietary information and inventions assignment agreement and any other appropriate agreement between the named executive officer and NantHealth (together, the “Severance Conditions”).

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.
