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


In connection with a review of our current management structure, we have determined to eliminate the position of Chief Operating Officer. On August 31, 2020, Robert J. Folkes was notified that he would be terminated from his position as our Chief Operating Officer and as an employee, effective September 30, 2020. The responsibilities of that position will be handled by other officers and employees following Mr. Folkes’ termination. Subject to certain conditions, including that Mr. Folkes sign and not rescind certain releases, Mr. Folkes is entitled to receive severance pursuant to the Tactile Systems Technology, Inc. Executive Employee Severance Plan (the “Severance Plan”).  Under the Severance Plan, Mr. Folkes will receive:


·an amount equal to one times his annualized base salary as of the termination date, payable in accordance with our regular payroll schedule over the 12 months thereafter;


·the portion of the premium costs that we would have paid, if he had remained employed by us, for continued group health insurance coverage following the termination date, at the same level of coverage, for a period of 12 consecutive months after the termination date (or until group health or dental coverage from another employer is received, if earlier); and


·with respect to all equity-based awards that have been granted to him that are outstanding and not fully vested on such termination date (each, an “Equity Award”), a pro rata portion of the unvested portion of such Equity Award will vest as of the date his release of claims becomes irrevocable. His stock option awards will remain exercisable to the extent so vested for one year after the termination date.


The foregoing description of the Severance Plan does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Severance Plan, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference.
