On June 20, 2023, AiAdvertising, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an employment agreement (the “Employment Agreement”) with Kevin Myers, the Company’s Chief Product & Marketing Officer. The Employment Agreement has an initial term beginning on January 1, 2023 through December 31, 2023 and thereafter shall renew automatically for successive one-year extension terms until either party gives notice of nonrenewal at least 90 days before the end of the applicable extension term. Pursuant to the Employment Agreement, Mr. Myers will receive an annual base salary of $250,000 and a one-time bonus of $50,000 payable on or before July 15, 2023. Mr. Myers will also be eligible for an annual incentive bonus, with a target payout of a minimum of fifty percent (50%) of his base salary (the “Target Bonus”), upon the achievement of Company performance goals established by the Company’s compensation committee of the board of directors.


In the event Mr. Myers’ employment is terminated by the Company without cause or by Mr. Myers for good reason, as defined in the Employment Agreement, Mr. Myers will be entitled to a lump sum payment equal to the sum of (A) two times Mr. Myers’ base salary for the year in which the date of the termination occurs, reduced for actual service performed from the effective date down to a minimum period of twelve full months or one times Mr. Myers’ base salary, (B) a payment equal to the product of (i) the Target Bonus and (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days Mr. Myers was employed by the Company during the year of termination and the denominator of which is the number of days in such year, and (C) 12 months of COBRA premium payments based on the coverages in effect as of the date of Mr. Myers’ termination of employment. The treatment of any outstanding equity award shall be determined in accordance with the terms of the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan and the applicable award agreements. All of Mr. Myers’ severance benefits are subject to his execution of a release of claims and his continued compliance with his restrictive covenant agreement.


The foregoing description of the Employment Agreement is qualified by reference to the full text of the Employment Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
