INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PROXY STATEMENT

Why you received this proxy statement. You are viewing or have received these proxy materials because GoodRx’s Board is soliciting your proxy to vote your shares at the Annual Meeting. This proxy statement includes information that we are required to provide to you under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and that is designed to assist you in voting your shares.

Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials. As permitted by SEC rules, GoodRx is making this proxy statement and its 2020 Annual Report available to its stockholders electronically via the Internet. On or about April 27, 2021, we mailed to our stockholders a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials (the “Internet Notice”) containing instructions on how to access this proxy statement and our 2020 Annual Report and vote online. If you received an Internet Notice by mail, you will not receive a printed copy of the proxy materials in the mail unless you specifically request them. Instead, the Internet Notice instructs you on how to access and review all of the important information contained in this proxy statement and 2020 Annual Report. The Internet Notice also instructs you on how you may submit your proxy over the Internet. If you received an Internet Notice by mail and would like to receive a printed copy of our proxy materials, you should follow the instructions for requesting such materials contained in the Internet Notice.

Printed Copies of Our Proxy Materials. If you received printed copies of our proxy materials, then instructions regarding how you can vote are contained on the proxy card included in the materials.

Householding. The SEC’s rules permit us to deliver a single set of proxy materials to one address shared by two or more of our stockholders. This delivery method is referred to as “householding” and can result in significant cost savings. To take advantage of this opportunity, we have delivered only one set of proxy materials to multiple stockholders who share an address, unless we received contrary instructions from the impacted stockholders prior to the mailing date. We agree to deliver promptly, upon written or oral request, a separate set of proxy materials, as requested, to any stockholder at the shared address to which a single set of those documents was delivered. If you prefer to receive separate copies of the proxy materials, contact Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. at 1 866-540-7095 or in writing at Broadridge, Householding Department, 51 Mercedes Way, Edgewood, New York 11717.

If you are currently a stockholder sharing an address with another stockholder and wish to receive only one set of future proxy materials for your household, please contact Broadridge at the above phone number or address.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THE 2021 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS

WHO IS ENTITLED TO VOTE AT THE ANNUAL MEETING?

The Record Date for the Annual Meeting is April 16, 2021. You are entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting only if you were a stockholder of record at the close of business on that date, or if you hold a valid proxy for the Annual Meeting. You will need to obtain your own Internet access if you choose to attend the Annual Meeting and/or vote over the Internet. Each share of our Class A common stock entitles its holders to one vote per share and each share of our Class B common stock entitles its holders to ten votes per share on all matters presented to our stockholders at the Annual Meeting. Holders of Class A and holders of Class B common stock vote together as a single class on any matter (including the election of directors) that is submitted to a vote of our stockholders, unless otherwise required by law or our amended and restated certificate of incorporation. At the close of business on the Record Date, there were 69,269,013 shares of Class A common stock and 323,389,392 shares of Class B common stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting, representing 2.1% and 97.9% of the voting power of our Common Stock, respectively.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING A “RECORD HOLDER” AND HOLDING SHARES IN “STREET NAME”?

A record holder holds shares in his or her name. Shares held in “street name” means shares that are held in the name of a bank or broker on a person’s behalf.

AM I ENTITLED TO VOTE IF MY SHARES ARE HELD IN “STREET NAME”?

Yes. If your shares are held by a bank or a brokerage firm, you are considered the “beneficial owner” of those shares held in “street name.” If your shares are held in street name, our proxy materials are being provided to you by your bank or brokerage firm, along with a voting instruction card if you received printed copies of our proxy materials. As the beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your bank or brokerage firm how to vote your shares, and the bank or brokerage firm is required to vote your shares in accordance with your instructions. If you haven’t received a 16‑digit control number, you should contact your bank or broker to obtain your control number or otherwise vote through the bank or broker.

HOW MANY SHARES MUST BE PRESENT TO HOLD THE ANNUAL MEETING?

A quorum must be present at the Annual Meeting for any business to be conducted. The presence at the Annual Meeting, electronically or by proxy, of the holders of a majority in voting power of Common Stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote on the Record Date will constitute a quorum.

WHO CAN ATTEND AND VOTE AT THE 2021 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS?

You may attend and vote at the Annual Meeting only if you are a GoodRx stockholder who is entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting, or if you hold a valid proxy for the Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting will be held entirely online to allow greater participation. You will be able to attend the Annual Meeting and submit your questions by visiting the following website: www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/GDRX2021. You will also be able to vote your shares electronically at the Annual Meeting.

To participate in the Annual Meeting, you will need the 16‑digit control number included in your Internet Notice, on your proxy card or on the instructions that accompanied your proxy materials. The meeting webcast will begin promptly at 1:00 p.m., Pacific Time. We encourage you to access the meeting prior to the start time. Online check‑in will begin at 1:00 p.m., Pacific Time, and you should allow ample time for check‑in procedures. If you hold your shares through a bank or broker, instructions should also be provided on the voting instruction card provided by your bank or brokerage firm. If you lose your 16‑digit control

number, you may join the Annual Meeting as a “Guest,” but you will not be able to vote, ask questions, or access the list of stockholders as of the Record Date.

WHY A VIRTUAL MEETING?

We are excited to embrace the latest technology to provide expanded access, improved communication and cost savings for us and our stockholders. We believe the virtual meeting will enable increased stockholder attendance and participation since stockholders can participate from any location around the world. Furthermore, as part of our effort to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our directors, members of management and stockholders who wish to attend the Annual Meeting, in light of the COVID‑19 pandemic, we believe that hosting a virtual meeting is in the best interests of the Company and such attendees of the Annual Meeting.

WHAT IF DURING THE CHECK‑IN TIME OR DURING THE ANNUAL MEETING I HAVE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES OR TROUBLE ACCESSING THE VIRTUAL MEETING WEBSITE?

We will have technicians ready to assist you with any technical difficulties you may have accessing the virtual meeting website. If you encounter any difficulties accessing the virtual meeting website during the check‑in or meeting time, please call refer to the technical support number that will be available on the Annual Meeting website.

WHAT IF A QUORUM IS NOT PRESENT AT THE ANNUAL MEETING?

If a quorum is not present at the scheduled time of the Annual Meeting, the person presiding over the Annual Meeting may adjourn the Annual Meeting until a quorum is present or represented.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF I RECEIVE MORE THAN ONE INTERNET NOTICE OR MORE THAN ONE SET OF PROXY MATERIALS?

It means that your shares are held in more than one account at the transfer agent and/or with banks or brokers. Please vote all of your shares. To ensure that all of your shares are voted, for each Internet Notice or set of proxy materials, please submit your proxy by phone, via the Internet, or, if you received printed copies of the proxy materials, by signing, dating and returning the enclosed proxy card in the enclosed envelope.

HOW DO I VOTE?

We recommend that stockholders vote by proxy even if they plan to participate in the Annual Meeting and vote electronically during the meeting. If you are a stockholder of record, there are three ways to vote by proxy:

 

by Internet—You can vote over the Internet at www.proxyvote.com by following the instructions on the Internet Notice or proxy card;

 

by Telephone—You can vote by telephone by calling 1-800-690-6903 and following the instructions on the proxy card; or

 

by Mail—You can vote by mail by signing, dating and mailing the proxy card, which you may have received by mail.

Internet and telephone voting facilities for stockholders of record will be available 24 hours a day and will close at 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on June 9, 2021. Stockholders may vote at the Annual Meeting by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/GDRX2021 and entering the 16‑digit control number included on your Internet Notice, proxy card or the instructions that accompanied your proxy materials. The Annual Meeting webcast will begin promptly at 1:00 p.m., Pacific Time, on June 10, 2021.

4


 

If your shares are held in street name through a bank or broker, you will receive instructions on how to vote from the bank or broker. You must follow their instructions in order for your shares to be voted. Internet and telephone voting also may be offered to stockholders owning shares through certain banks and brokers. If your shares are not registered in your own name and you would like to vote your shares at the Annual Meeting, you may visit www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/GDRX2021 and enter the 16‑digit control number included in the voting instruction card provided to you by your bank or brokerage firm. If you hold your shares in street name and you do not receive a 16‑digit control number, you may need to log in to your bank or brokerage firm’s website and select the shareholder communications mailbox to access the meeting and vote. Instructions should also be provided on the voting instruction card provided by your bank or brokerage firm.

CAN I CHANGE MY VOTE AFTER I SUBMIT MY PROXY?

Yes.

If you are a registered stockholder, you may revoke your proxy and change your vote:

 

by submitting a duly executed proxy bearing a later date;

 

by granting a subsequent proxy through the Internet or telephone;

 

by giving written notice of revocation to the Secretary of GoodRx prior to the Annual Meeting; or

 

by voting electronically at the Annual Meeting.

Your most recent proxy card or Internet or telephone proxy is the one that is counted. Your virtual attendance at the Annual Meeting by itself will not revoke your proxy unless you give written notice of revocation to the Secretary before your proxy is voted or you vote electronically during the Annual Meeting.

If your shares are held in street name, you may change or revoke your voting instructions by following the specific directions provided to you by your bank or broker, or you may vote electronically during the Annual Meeting.

WHO WILL COUNT THE VOTES?

A representative of Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc., our inspector of election, will tabulate and certify the votes.

WHAT IF I DO NOT SPECIFY HOW MY SHARES ARE TO BE VOTED?

If you submit a proxy but do not indicate any voting instructions, the persons named as proxies will vote in accordance with the recommendations of the Board. The Board’s recommendations are indicated on page 2 of this proxy statement, as well as with the description of each proposal in this proxy statement.

WILL ANY OTHER BUSINESS BE CONDUCTED AT THE ANNUAL MEETING?

We know of no other business that will be presented at the Annual Meeting. If any other matter properly comes before the stockholders for a vote at the Annual Meeting, however, the proxy holders named on the Company’s proxy card will vote your shares in accordance with their best judgment.

HOW MANY VOTES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE APPROVAL OF THE PROPOSALS TO BE VOTED UPON AND HOW WILL ABSTENTIONS AND BROKER NON‑VOTES BE TREATED?

 

Proposal

Votes required

Effect of Votes Withheld / Abstentions
and Broker Non‑Votes

Proposal 1: Election of Directors

The plurality of the votes cast. This means that the three nominees receiving the highest number of affirmative “FOR” votes will be elected as Class I Directors.

Votes withheld and broker non‑votes will have no effect.

Proposal 2: Ratification of Appointment of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

The majority of the votes cast.

Abstentions will have no effect. We do not expect any broker non‑votes on this proposal.

 

 

 

WHAT IS AN ABSTENTION AND HOW WILL VOTES WITHHELD AND ABSTENTIONS BE TREATED?

A “vote withheld,” in the case of the proposal regarding the election of directors, or an “abstention,” in the case of the two other proposals to be voted on at the Annual Meeting, represents a stockholder’s affirmative choice to decline to vote on a proposal. Votes withheld and abstentions are counted as present and entitled to vote for purposes of determining a quorum. Votes withheld have no effect on the election of directors and abstentions will have no effect on the ratification of the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.

WHAT ARE BROKER NON‑VOTES AND DO THEY COUNT FOR DETERMINING A QUORUM?

Generally, broker non‑votes occur when shares held by a broker in “street name” for a beneficial owner are not voted with respect to a particular proposal because the broker (1) has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner and (2) lacks discretionary voting power to vote those shares. A broker is entitled to vote shares held for a beneficial owner on routine matters, such as the ratification of the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm, without instructions from the beneficial owner of those shares. On the other hand, absent instructions from the beneficial owner of such shares, a broker is not entitled to vote shares held for a beneficial owner on non‑routine matters, such as the election of directors and the advisory vote on the compensation of our named executive officers. Broker non‑votes count for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present.

WHERE CAN I FIND THE VOTING RESULTS OF THE 2021 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS?

We plan to announce preliminary voting results at the Annual Meeting and we will report the final results in a Current Report on Form 8‑K, which we intend to file with the SEC shortly after the Annual Meeting.

WILL THERE BE A QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION DURING THE ANNUAL MEETING?

As part of the Annual Meeting, we will hold a live Q&A session, during which we intend to answer appropriate questions submitted by stockholders during the meeting that are pertinent to the Company and the meeting matters, for up to 15 minutes after the completion of the Annual Meeting. Only stockholders that have accessed the Annual Meeting as a stockholder (rather than a “Guest”) by following the procedures outlined above in “Who can attend and vote at the 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders?” will be permitted to submit questions during the Annual Meeting. Each stockholder is limited to no more than two questions. Questions should be succinct and only cover a single topic. We will not address questions that are, among other things:

 

irrelevant to the business of the Company or to the business of the Annual Meeting;

 

related to material non-public information of the Company, including the status or results of our business since our last Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q;

 

related to any pending, threatened or ongoing litigation;

 

related to personal grievances;

6


 

 

derogatory references to individuals or that are otherwise in bad taste;

 

substantially repetitious of questions already made by another stockholder;

 

in excess of the two question limit;

 

in furtherance of the stockholder’s personal or business interests; or

 

out of order or not otherwise suitable for the conduct of the Annual Meeting as determined by the Chair or Corporate Secretary in their reasonable judgment.

Additional information regarding the Q&A session will be available in the “Rules of Conduct” available on the Annual Meeting webpage for stockholders that have accessed the Annual Meeting as a stockholder (rather than a “Guest”) by following the procedures outlined above in “Who can attend and vote at the 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders?”.

PROPOSALS TO BE VOTED ON

PROPOSAL 1: Election of Directors

At the Annual Meeting, three (3) Class I Directors are to be elected to hold office until the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held in 2024 and until such director’s successor is elected and qualified or until such director’s earlier death, resignation or removal.

We currently have ten (10) directors on our Board. The proposal regarding the election of directors requires the approval of a plurality of the votes cast. This means that the three nominees receiving the highest number of affirmative “FOR” votes will be elected as Class I Directors. Votes withheld and broker non‑votes will have no effect on the outcome of the vote on this proposal.

Our Board is currently divided into three classes with staggered, three‑year terms. At each annual meeting of stockholders, the successor to each director whose term then expires will be elected to serve from the time of election and qualification until the third annual meeting of stockholders following election or such director’s death, resignation or removal, whichever is earliest to occur. The current class structure is as follows: Class I, whose term currently expires at the 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and whose subsequent term will expire at the 2024 Annual Meeting of Stockholders; Class II, whose term will expire at the 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders; and Class III, whose term will expire at the 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. The current Class I Directors are Douglas Hirsch, Jacqueline Kosecoff and Agnes Rey-Giraud; the current Class II Directors are Christopher Adams, Trevor Bezdek and Adam Karol; and the current Class III Directors are Julie Bradley, Dipanjan Deb, Stephen LeSieur and Gregory Mondre.

In connection with the initial public offering (“IPO”) of our Class A common stock in August 2020, we entered into a Stockholders Agreement (the “Stockholders Agreement”) between the Company and certain stockholders of the Company, including (i) the Silver Lake Stockholders (as defined below); (ii) the Francisco Partners Stockholders (as defined below), (iv) the Spectrum Stockholders (as defined below), and (v) the Idea Men Stockholders (as defined below). Agnes Rey-Giraud has been designated by the Silver Lake Stockholders as a Class I director (and as the Silver Lake Stockholders’ Independent Director (as defined in the Stockholders Agreement) designee) and Douglas Hirsch has been designated by the Idea Men Stockholders as a Class I director. Jacqueline Kosecoff was also designated for appointment to the Board as an Independent Director pursuant to the Stockholders Agreement and was initially recommended for service on the board in 2016 by our co-Chief Executive Officers. As a result of the Stockholders Agreement and the aggregate voting power of the parties to the agreement, we expect that the parties to the agreement acting in conjunction will control the election of directors at GoodRx.

PROPOSAL 2: Ratification of Appointment of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

Our Audit Committee has appointed PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021. Our Board has directed that this appointment be submitted to our stockholders for ratification. Although ratification of our appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is not required, we value the opinions of our stockholders and believe that stockholder ratification of our appointment is a good corporate governance practice.

PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP served as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019. Neither PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP nor any of its members has any direct or indirect financial interest in or any connection with us in any capacity other than as our auditors, providing audit and non‑audit related services. A representative of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is expected to attend the Annual Meeting, have an opportunity to make a statement if he or she desires to do so, and be available to respond to appropriate questions from stockholders.

In the event that the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is not ratified by the stockholders, the Audit Committee will consider this fact when it appoints the independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022. Even if the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is ratified, the Audit Committee retains the discretion to appoint a different independent auditor at any time if it determines that such a change is in the interests of GoodRx.

VOTE REQUIRED

This proposal requires the approval the majority of votes cast. Abstentions will have no effect on the proposal. Because brokers have discretionary authority to vote on the ratification of the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, we do not expect any broker non‑votes in connection with this proposal.

RECOMMENDATION OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

 

The Board of Directors unanimously recommends a vote FOR the ratification of the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm.

REPORT OF THE AUDIT COMMITTEE OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The Audit Committee has reviewed GoodRx’s audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 and has discussed these financial statements with management and GoodRx’s independent registered public accounting firm. The Audit Committee has also received from, and discussed with, GoodRx’s independent registered public accounting firm the matters that they are required to provide to the Audit Committee, including the matters required to be discussed by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”) and the SEC.

GoodRx’s independent registered public accounting firm also provided the Audit Committee with a formal written statement required by PCAOB Rule 3526 (Communications with Audit Committees Concerning Independence) describing all relationships between the independent registered public accounting firm and GoodRx, including the disclosures required by the applicable requirements of the PCAOB regarding the independent registered public accounting firm’s communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence. In addition, the Audit Committee discussed with the independent registered public accounting firm its independence from GoodRx.

Based on its discussions with management and the independent registered public accounting firm, and its review of the representations and information provided by management and the independent registered public accounting firm, the Audit Committee recommended to the Board that the audited financial statements be included in GoodRx’s Annual Report on Form 10‑K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

AUDIT FEES

Audit fees consist of fees for the audit of our consolidated financial statements, the review of the unaudited interim financial statements included in our quarterly reports on Form 10‑Q and other professional services provided in connection with regulatory filings or engagements, including fees billed in connection with our initial public offering in September 2020.

AUDIT‑RELATED FEES

Audit-related fees consist of fees for assurance and related services that are reasonably related to the performance of the audit and the review of our financial statements and which are not reported under “Audit Fees.”

TAX FEES

Tax fees comprise fees for a variety of permissible services relating to tax compliance, tax studies, and tax advice.

ALL OTHER FEES

All Other Fees relate to license fees for accounting research and disclosure checklist software.

AUDIT COMMITTEE PRE‑APPROVAL POLICY AND PROCEDURES

The Audit Committee adopted a policy (the “Pre-Approval Policy”) in connection with our IPO, which sets forth the procedures and conditions pursuant to which audit and non-audit services proposed to be performed by the independent auditor may be pre-approved. The Pre-Approval Policy generally provides that we will not engage an independent auditor to render any audit, audit-related, tax or permissible non-audit service unless the service is either (i) explicitly approved by the Audit Committee (“specific pre-approval”) or (ii) entered into pursuant to the pre-approval policies and procedures described in the Pre-Approval Policy (“general pre-approval”). Unless a type of service to be provided by the independent auditor has received general pre-approval by the Audit Committee, it requires specific pre-approval by the Audit Committee. Any proposed services exceeding 10% of pre-approved fee levels or budgeted amounts also require specific pre-approval.

16


 

For both types of pre-approval, the Audit Committee considers whether such services are consistent with the SEC’s rules on auditor independence. The Audit Committee will also consider whether the independent auditor is best positioned to provide the most effective and efficient service, for reasons such as its familiarity with the Company’s business, people, culture, accounting systems, risk profile and other factors, and whether the service might enhance the Company’s ability to manage or control risk or improve audit quality. All such factors will be considered as a whole, and no one factor should necessarily be determinative.

In connection with the Pre-Approval Policy, the Audit Committee will periodically review and pre-approve any services (and related fee levels or budgeted amounts) that may be provided by the independent auditor without first obtaining specific preapproval from the Audit Committee or the Chair of the Audit Committee. The Audit Committee may revise the list of general pre-approved services from time to time, based on subsequent determinations. All services to the Company provided by PricewaterhouseCooper after the adoption of the Pre-Approval Policy in 2020 were approved in accordance with the Pre-Approval Policy.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 

GENERAL

Our Board has adopted Corporate Governance Guidelines, a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and charters for our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, Audit Committee,Compensation Committee and Compliance Committee to assist the Board in the exercise of its responsibilities and to serve as a framework for the effective governance of GoodRx. You can access our current committee charters, our Corporate Governance Guidelines and our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics in the “Governance” section of the “Investors” page of our website located at www.goodrx.com, or by writing to our offices at 2701 Olympic Boulevard, West Building - Suite 200, Santa Monica, California 90404.

BOARD COMPOSITION

Our Board currently consists of ten (10) members: Christopher Adams, Trevor Bezdek, Julie Bradley, Dipanjan Deb, Douglas Hirsch, Adam Karol, Jacqueline Kosecoff, Stephen LeSieur, Gregory Mondre and Agnes Rey-Giraud. Our Board is currently divided into three classes with staggered, three‑year terms. At each annual meeting of stockholders, the successor to each director whose term then expires will be elected to serve from the time of election and qualification until the third annual meeting following election or such director’s death, resignation or removal, whichever is earliest to occur. Any additional directorships resulting from an increase in the number of directors will be distributed among the three classes so that, as nearly as possible, each class will consist of one‑third of the directors. The division of our Board into three classes with staggered three‑year terms may delay or prevent a change of our management or a change in control of the Company.

STOCKHOLDERS AGREEMENT

In connection with our IPO, we entered into a Stockholders Agreement with SLP Geology Aggregator, L.P., Francisco Partners IV, L.P., Francisco Partners IV-A, L.P., Spectrum Equity VII, L.P., Spectrum VII Investment Managers’ Fund, L.P., Spectrum VII Co-Investment Fund, L.P. and Idea Men, LLC, or the parties to our Stockholders Agreement, granting them certain board designation rights so long as they maintain a certain percentage of ownership of our outstanding common stock.

This Stockholders Agreement requires us to, among other things, nominate a number of individuals for election as our directors at any meeting of our stockholders, designated by SLP Geology Aggregator, L.P. (with certain affiliate stockholders, the “Silverlake Stockholders” and each such designated individual a “Silver Lake Designee”), Francisco Partners IV, L.P. and Francisco Partners IV-A, L.P. (with certain affiliate stockholders, the “Francisco Partners Stockholders” and each such designated individual a “Francisco Partners Designee”), Spectrum Equity VII, L.P., Spectrum VII Investment Managers’ Fund, L.P., and Spectrum VII Co-Investment Fund, L.P. (with certain affiliate stockholders, the “Spectrum Stockholders” and each such designated individual a “Spectrum Designee”) and Idea Men, LLC (with certain affiliate stockholders, the “Idea Men Stockholders,” each such designated individual a “Idea Men Designee,” and, together with the Silver Lake Designees, Francisco Partners Designees and Spectrum Designee, the “Stockholder Designees”), such that, upon the election of such individual and each other individual nominated by or at the direction of our board of directors or a duly-authorized committee of the board, as a director of our company, the number of: (A) Silver Lake Designees serving as directors will be equal to (i) three (3) directors, if Silver Lake Stockholders continue to beneficially own at least 20% of the aggregate number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately following the closing of our IPO and related private placement on September 25, 2020 (the “Closing Date”), (ii) two (2) directors, if Silver Lake Stockholders continue to beneficially own less than 20% but more than 10% of the aggregate number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately following the Closing Date or (iii) one (1) director, if Silver Lake Stockholders continue to beneficially own less than 10% but more than 5% of the aggregate number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately following the Closing Date; (B) Francisco Partners

19


 

Designees serving as directors will be equal to (i) two (2) directors, if Francisco Partners Stockholders continue to beneficially own at least 10% of the aggregate number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately following the Closing Date, or (ii) one (1) director, if Francisco Partners Stockholders continue to beneficially own less than 10% but more than 5% of the aggregate number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately following the Closing Date; (C) Spectrum Designees serving as directors will be equal to one (1) director, if Spectrum Stockholders continue to beneficially own at least 5% of the aggregate number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately following the Closing Date; and (D) Idea Men Designees serving as directors will be equal to two (2) directors, if Idea Men Stockholders continues to beneficially own at least 5% of the aggregate number of shares of common stock outstanding immediately following the Closing Date provided that the Idea Men Designees shall be Trevor Bezdek, for so long as Trevor Bezdek serves as our Chief Executive Officer or Co-Chief Executive Officer, and Douglas Hirsch, for so long as Douglas Hirsch serves as our Chief Executive Officer or Co-Chief Executive Officer.

Each party to our stockholders agreement has also agreed to vote, or cause to vote, all of their outstanding shares of our Class A common stock and Class B common stock at any annual or special meeting of stockholders in which directors are elected, so as to cause (i) the election of the Silver Lake Designees, Francisco Partners Designees, Spectrum Designee and Idea Men Designees and (ii) the election of two (2) directors who are not affiliated with any party to our stockholders agreement and who satisfy the standards of independence established for independent directors under the rules of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Nasdaq Rules”) and the additional independence standards applicable to audit committee members established pursuant to Rule 10A-3 under the Exchange Act.

In addition, pursuant to the stockholders agreement, if the Idea Men Stockholders continue to beneficially own at least 5% of the aggregate number of outstanding shares of common stock at any time that the number of Silver Lake Designees, Francisco Partners Designees or the Spectrum Designee is decreased pursuant to the terms above, then the number of Idea Men Designees serving as directors will be increased on a one to one basis. For so long as the Silver Lake Stockholders and Francisco Partners Stockholders continue to maintain at least one (1) director as Silver Lake Designees and Francisco Partners Designees, respectively, the Idea Men Stockholders shall not nominate a director to fill a vacancy caused by a decrease in the number of Silver Lake Designees or Francisco Partners Designees, or by the removal of the Spectrum Designee, pursuant to the terms above without the consent of each of Silver Lake Stockholders and Francisco Partners Stockholders.

If the number of individuals that Silver Lake, Francisco Partners, Spectrum or Idea Men, LLC have the right to designate is decreased because of the decrease in its in ownership, then the corresponding Silver Lake Designee, Francisco Partners Designee, Spectrum Designee or Idea Men Designee will immediately offer to tender his or her resignation for consideration by our Board and, if such resignation is requested by the Board, such director shall resign within thirty (30) days from the date that the respective stockholder’s director designation right decreased. The last remaining Silver Lake Designee, Francisco Partners Designee, Spectrum Designee or Idea Men Designee may remain on our board of directors through the end of his or her then current term; provided, that a director may resign at any time regardless of the period of time left in his or her then current term.

As a result of the Stockholders Agreement, we expect that the parties to the agreement acting in conjunction will control the election of directors at GoodRx.

DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE

Our Board of Directors has affirmatively determined that Christopher Adams, Julie Bradley, Dipanjan Deb, Adam Karol, Jacqueline Kosecoff, Stephen LeSieur, Gregory Mondre and Agnes Rey-Giraud are each an “independent director,” as defined under the Nasdaq Rules. In evaluating and determining the independence of the directors, the Board considered that GoodRx may have certain relationships with its directors. Specifically, the Board of Directors considered that certain of our directors are affiliated with significant stockholders of the Company.

CONTROLLED COMPANY EXEMPTION

Pursuant to the terms of the Stockholders Agreement, the Silver Lake Stockholders, Francisco Partners Stockholders, Spectrum Stockholders and Idea Men Stockholders, in the aggregate, have more than 50% of the voting power for the election of directors, and, as a result, we are considered a “controlled company” for the purposes of the Nasdaq Rules. As such, we qualify for, and rely on, exemptions from certain corporate governance requirements. As a result, we are not subject to certain corporate governance requirements, including that a majority of our Board consists of “independent directors,” as defined under the Nasdaq Rules. In addition, we are not required to have a nominating and corporate governance committee or compensation committee that is composed entirely of independent directors with a written charter addressing the committee’s purpose and responsibilities or to conduct annual performance evaluations of the nominating and corporate governance and compensation committees. Accordingly, our stockholders may not have the same protections afforded to stockholders of companies that are subject to all of the corporate governance requirements of the Nasdaq Rules.

Currently, eight out of ten of the directors on our Board are independent under the Nasdaq Rules, and our Compensation Committee consists entirely of independent directors under the Nasdaq rules. However, our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is not entirely independent in reliance on the controlled company exemption and we rely on certain exemptions to the corporate governance requirements for our Compensation Committee and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. For so long as we remain a “controlled company,” we may avail ourselves of other exemptions available to “controlled companies” in the future.

If at any time we cease to be a “controlled company” under the Nasdaq Rules, our Board intends to take any action that may be necessary to comply with the Nasdaq Rules, subject to a permitted “phase-in” period.

DIRECTOR CANDIDATES

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for identifying and reviewing the qualifications of potential director candidates and recommending to the Board those candidates to be nominated for election to the Board, subject to any obligations and procedures governing the nomination of directors to the Board that may be included in the Stockholders Agreement.

To facilitate the search process for director candidates, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may solicit our current directors and executives for the names of potentially qualified candidates or may ask directors and executives to pursue their own business contacts for the names of potentially qualified candidates. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may also consult with outside advisors or retain search firms to assist in the search for qualified candidates, or consider director candidates recommended by our stockholders. Once potential candidates are identified, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee reviews the backgrounds of those candidates, evaluates candidates’ independence from us and potential conflicts of interest, and determines if candidates meet the qualifications desired by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of candidates for election as director.

Under the Stockholders Agreement, the Directors initially designated for election to the applicable classes of the Board (i) by the Silver Lake Stockholders are Gregory Mondre, Adam Karol, and Agnes Rey Giraud, (ii) by the Francisco Partners Stockholders are Dipanjan Deb and Christopher Adams, (iii) by the Spectrum Stockholders is Stephen LeSieur and (iv) by the Idea Men Stockholders are Trevor Bezdek and Douglas Hirsch.

In accordance with our Corporate Governance Guidelines, in evaluating the suitability of individual candidates, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may take into account many factors, including: personal and professional integrity, ethics and values; experience in corporate management, such as serving as an officer or former officer of a publicly held company; strong finance experience; relevant social policy concerns; experience relevant to the Company’s industry; experience as a board

21


 

member or executive officer of another publicly held company; relevant academic expertise or other proficiency in an area of the Company’s operations; diversity of expertise and experience in substantive matters pertaining to the Company’s business relative to other board members; diversity of background and perspective, including, but not limited to, with respect to age, gender, race, place of residence and specialized experience; practical and mature business judgment, including, but not limited to, the ability to make independent analytical inquiries; and any other relevant qualifications, attributes or skills. The Board evaluates each individual in the context of the Board as a whole, with the objective of assembling a group that can best perpetuate the success of the business and represent stockholder interests through the exercise of sound judgment using its diversity of experience in these various areas. In determining whether to recommend a director for re-election, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may also consider the director’s past attendance at meetings and participation in and contributions to the activities of the Board.

Stockholders may recommend individuals to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee for consideration as potential director candidates by submitting the names of the recommended individuals, together with appropriate biographical information and background materials, to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, c/o General Counsel, GoodRx Holdings, Inc., 2701 Olympic Boulevard, West Building - Suite 200, Santa Monica, California 90404. In the event there is a vacancy, and assuming that appropriate biographical and background material has been provided on a timely basis, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will evaluate stockholder‑recommended candidates by following substantially the same process, and applying substantially the same criteria, as it follows for candidates submitted by others.

COMMUNICATIONS FROM STOCKHOLDERS

Stockholders of the Company may communicate directly with the independent members of the Board or any Chair of a Board committee about corporate governance, corporate strategy, Board-related matters or other substantive matters that our General Counsel consider to be important for the director(s) to know, by addressing any communications to the intended recipient by name or position in care of: GoodRx Holdings, Inc., Attn: General Counsel, 2701 Olympic Boulevard, West Building - Suite 200, Santa Monica, California 90404, subject to compliance with the requirements and parameters noted below. Such communications may be made confidentially or anonymously.

All communications, including stockholder recommendations of director candidates, must be accompanied by the following regarding the person submitting the communication: a statement of the type and amount of the securities of the Company that the person holds, and the address, telephone number and e-mail address, if any, of the person.

The following types of communications are considered inappropriate for delivery to directors:

 

Communications regarding individual grievances or other interests that are personal to the party submitting the communication;

 

Communications regarding ordinary business operations; and

 

Communications that contain offensive, obscene or abusive content.

Communications deemed to comply with the above requirements and to be appropriate for delivery will be delivered to the applicable director(s) on a periodic basis, generally in advance of each regularly scheduled meeting of the Board. Concerns relating to accounting, internal accounting controls, auditing matters or questionable financial practices will be handled in accordance with the procedures established by the Audit Committee with respect to such matters.

BOARD LEADERSHIP STRUCTURE AND ROLE IN RISK OVERSIGHT

The Board has determined not to have a Chair of the Board at this time. Our Board exercises its judgment in establishing, combining or separating the roles of Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer as it deems appropriate in light of prevailing circumstances. The Board will continue to exercise its judgment on an ongoing basis to determine the optimal Board leadership structure that the Board believes will provide effective leadership, oversight and direction, while optimizing the functioning of both the Board and management and facilitating effective communication between the two. The Board has concluded that the current structure provides a well-functioning and effective balance between strong Company leadership and appropriate safeguards and oversight by independent directors, including independent chairs of each Board committee, without the need for a Chair of the Board.

If there is a Chair of the Board and the Chair is a member of management or does not otherwise qualify as independent, the Independent Directors may elect a lead director. The lead director’s responsibilities would include, but are not limited to: presiding over all meetings of the Board at which the Chair of the Board is not present, including any executive sessions of the Independent Directors; approving Board meeting schedules and agendas; and acting as the liaison between the Independent Directors and the Co-Chief Executive Officers and Chair of the Board. If there is a Chair of the Board and the Chair is an Independent Director, the Chair of the Board will serve as lead director. The Board may modify its leadership structure in the future as it deems appropriate.

Risk assessment and oversight are an integral part of our governance and management processes. Our management is responsible for our day-to-day risk management activities. Our Audit Committee is responsible for overseeing our risk management process. Our Audit Committee focuses on our general risk management policies and strategy, the most significant risks facing us, including cybersecurity, and oversees the implementation of risk mitigation strategies by management. Our Compensation Committee is responsible for overseeing risks related to our compensation programs. Our Board is also apprised of particular risk management matters in connection with its general oversight role, including business continuity risks relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, and approval of corporate matters and significant transactions. The Board does not believe that its role in the oversight of our risks affects the Board’s leadership structure.

ANTI-HEDGING POLICY

Our Board has adopted an Insider Trading Compliance Policy, which applies to all of our directors, officers and employees. Unless pre-approved by our Board in each instance, the policy prohibits our directors, officers and employees and any entities they control from purchasing financial instruments such as prepaid variable forward contracts, equity swaps, collars, and exchange funds, or otherwise engaging in transactions that hedge or offset, or are designed to hedge or offset, any decrease in the market value of the Company’s equity securities, or that may cause an officer, director, or employee to no longer have the same objectives as the Company’s other stockholders.

CODE OF ETHICS

We have adopted a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics that applies to all of our directors, officers and employees. A copy of the code is available on our website at www.goodrx.com in the “Governance” section of the “Investors” page. We expect that any amendments to the code, or any waivers of its requirements, that are required to be disclosed by SEC or Nasdaq rules will be disclosed on our website.

ATTENDANCE BY MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AT MEETINGS

There were five meetings of the Board during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020. During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, each director attended at least 75% of the aggregate of (i) all meetings of the Board during the period in which he or she served as a director and (ii) all meetings of the committees on which the director served during the period in which he or she served as a director.

23


 

Under our Corporate Governance Guidelines, which are available on our website at www.goodrx.com, a director is expected to spend the time and effort necessary to properly discharge his or her responsibilities. Accordingly, a director is expected to regularly prepare for and attend meetings of the Board and all committees on which the director sits (including separate meetings of the independent directors), with the understanding that, on occasion, a director may be unable to attend a meeting. A director who is unable to attend a meeting of the Board or a committee of the Board is expected to notify the Chairman of the Board or the Chairman of the appropriate committee in advance of such meeting, and, whenever possible, participate in such meeting via teleconference in the case of an in person meeting. We do not maintain a formal policy regarding director attendance at the Annual Meeting; however, it is expected that, absent compelling circumstances, directors will attend.

AUDIT COMMITTEE

Our Audit Committee’s responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

 

appointing, compensating, retaining, evaluating, terminating and overseeing our independent registered public accounting firm;

 

discussing with our independent registered public accounting firm their independence;

 

reviewing with our independent registered public accounting firm the scope and results of their audit;

 

approving all audit and permissible non-audit services to be performed by our independent registered public accounting firm;

 

overseeing the financial reporting process and discussing with management and our independent registered public accounting firm the interim and annual financial statements that we file with the SEC;

 

reviewing our policies on risk assessment and risk management;

 

reviewing related person transactions;

 

overseeing our financial and accounting controls and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements; and

 

establishing procedures for the confidential anonymous submission of concerns regarding questionable accounting or auditing matters.

The Audit Committee charter is available on our website at www.goodrx.com. The current members of the Audit Committee are Julie Bradley, Adam Karol and Agnes Rey-Giraud, with Julie Bradley serving as chair. We are currently relying on the phase-in rules of Rule 10A-3 under the Exchange Act and the Nasdaq Rules with respect to the requirement that an audit committee be composed entirely of members of the board of directors who satisfy the standards of independence established for independent directors under Nasdaq Rules and the additional independence standards applicable to audit committee members established pursuant to Rule 10A-3 under the Exchange Act, as determined by the board of directors. Our Board has

25


 

determined that each of Julie Bradley and Agnes Rey-Giraud are independent directors under Nasdaq Rules and the additional independence standards applicable to audit committee members established pursuant to Rule 10A-3 under the Exchange Act. Adam Karol is not independent under the additional independence standards applicable to audit committee members established pursuant to Rule 10A-3 under the Exchange Act. Our Board has also determined that each of Julie Bradley, Adam Karol and Agnes Rey-Giraud meets the “financial literacy” requirement for Audit Committee members under Nasdaq Rules and Julie Bradley is an “audit committee financial expert” within the meaning of the SEC rules.

The Audit Committee met five times during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

COMPENSATION COMMITTEE

The Compensation Committee is responsible for, among other matters:

 

reviewing and making recommendations to the Board regarding the compensation of our Co-Chief Executive Officers and other executive officers;

 

reviewing and making recommendations to our Board regarding the compensation of our directors;

 

reviewing and approving or making recommendations to our Board regarding our incentive compensation and equity-based plans and arrangements; and

 

appointing and overseeing any compensation consultants.

Pursuant to the Compensation Committee’s charter, which is available on our website at www.goodrx.com, the Compensation Committee has the authority to retain or obtain the advice of compensation consultants, legal counsel and other advisors to assist in carrying out its responsibilities. The Compensation Committee generally considers the Co-Chief Executive Officer’s input when making recommendations regarding the compensation of non-employee directors and executive officers (other than the Co-Chief Executive Officers). In 2020, prior to the formation of our Compensation Committee, the Company retained Pearl Meyer & Partners, LLC,  a compensation consulting firm (“Pearl Meyer”), to assist in making decisions regarding the amount and types of compensation to provide our executive officers. As part of this process, the Compensation Committee, once established, reviewed a compensation assessment provided by Pearl Meyer comparing our compensation to that of a group of peer companies within our industry and met with Pearl Meyer to discuss our executive compensation and to receive input and advice.

The Compensation Committee may delegate its authority under its charter to a subcommittee as it deems appropriate from time to time. The Compensation Committee has the authority to conduct or authorize investigations into any matters within the scope of its responsibilities as it deems appropriate, including the authority to request any officer, employee or adviser of the Company to meet with the Compensation Committee or any advisers engaged by the Compensation Committee. In addition to the foregoing and other authority expressly delegated to the Compensation Committee in the charter, the Compensation Committee may also exercise any other powers and carry out any other responsibilities consistent with the charter, the purposes of the Compensation Committee, the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws and applicable rules of Nasdaq.

The current members of our Compensation Committee are Dipanjan Deb, Jacqueline Kosecoff and Gregory Mondre, with Gregory Mondre serving as chair. Each member of our Compensation Committee meets the requirements for independence under the current Nasdaq Rules, including the Nasdaq Rules applicable to compensation committee membership. Dr. Kosecoff is also a non-employee director, as defined in Section 16b-3 of the Exchange Act.

The Compensation Committee, which was established in connection with our IPO, did not meet during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

26


 

NOMINATING AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for, among other matters:

 

identifying individuals qualified to become members of our Board, consistent with criteria approved by our Board, except where the Company is legally required by contract, bylaw or otherwise to provide third parties with the right to designate directors, including pursuant to the Stockholders Agreement (for so long as such agreement is in effect);

 

recommending to our Board the nominees for election to our Board at annual meetings of stockholders, except where the Company is legally required by contract, bylaw or otherwise to provide third parties with the right to designate directors, including pursuant to the Stockholders Agreement (for so long as such agreement is in effect);

 

overseeing an evaluation of the Board and its committees; and

 

developing and recommending to our Board a set of corporate governance guidelines and principles.

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee charter is available on our website at www.goodrx.com. Our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee consists of Christopher Adams, Trevor Bezdek and Gregory Mondre, with Christopher Adams serving as chair. Mr. Adams and Mr. Mondre meet the requirements for independence under the current Nasdaq Rules. Mr. Bezdek, as one of our Co-Chief Executive Officers, does not qualify as independent under the current Nasdaq Rules. The composition of our Nominating and Corporate Governance committee meets the requirements for independence under the Nasdaq Rules, including the exemptions available to controlled companies. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee has the authority to consult with outside advisors or retain search firms to assist in the search for qualified candidates, or consider director candidates recommended by our stockholders.

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, which was established in connection with our IPO, did not meet during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

COMPLIANCE COMMITTEE

Our Compliance Committee oversees and assists our Board in reviewing and providing general oversight of our compliance with federal and state laws and regulations relating to healthcare and in monitoring our performance with respect to such legal and regulatory requirements. Our Compliance Committee is responsible for, among other things:

 

reviewing and overseeing our compliance program;

 

ensuring proper communication of significant healthcare regulatory compliance issues to our board of directors; and

 

reviewing significant healthcare regulatory compliance risk areas and the steps taken by management to monitor, control and report such compliance risk exposures.

The current members of our Compliance Committee are Trevor Bezdek, Adam Karol, Stephen LeSieur and Agnes Rey-Giraud, with Agnes Rey-Giraud serving as chair.

The Compliance Committee met three times during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

(1)

Amounts reflect special bonuses.

(2)

Amounts reflect the aggregate grant date fair value of restricted stock units and stock options granted in 2020, computed in accordance with the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 718, Stock Compensation. These amounts do not reflect the actual economic value that will be realized by the employee upon the vesting, settlement or exercise of the stock option and/or stock award. The assumptions that we used to calculate these amounts are discussed in Note 15 to our audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 12, 2021.

(3)

Amounts for 2020 include (i) Company-paid matching contributions to our 401(k) plan ($5,833, $8,708, $4,000 and $5,000 for Messrs. Hirsch, Bezdek, Slutsky and Nagji, respectively), (ii) Company reimbursement of cell phone expenses ($500, $500, $600 and $350 for Messrs. Hirsch, Bezdek, Slutsky and Nagji, respectively), (iii) tax gross-ups related to special bonuses ($588, $303, $745 and $487 for Messrs. Hirsch, Bezdek, Slutsky and Nagji, respectively), and (iv) Company reimbursement of legal fees ($17,494) for Mr. Nagji.

(4)

Mr. Nagji’s employment with us commenced on June 16, 2020; therefore, certain amounts for Mr. Nagji, such as salary, reflect a partial year of service.

NARRATIVE TO SUMMARY COMPENSATION TABLE

2020 Salaries

The named executive officers receive a base salary to compensate them for services rendered to our company. The base salary payable to each named executive officer is intended to provide a fixed component of compensation reflecting the executive’s skill set, experience, role and responsibilities.

The base salaries for each of Messrs. Hirsch, Bezdek and Nagji for 2020 was $500,000; and our board of directors approved an increase to Mr. Slutsky’s annual base salary from $400,000 to $500,000, effective as of October 1, 2020.  Because Mr. Nagji’s employment start date was June 16, 2020, his actual base salary received in 2020 reflected his partial year of service. The Summary Compensation Table above shows the actual base salaries paid to each named executive officer in 2020.  

2020 Bonuses

Each of Messrs. Hirsch, Bezdek, Slutsky, and Nagji was eligible to earn a cash incentive bonus based upon the achievement of pre‑determined revenue goals of the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries for 2020 (each such bonus, a Revenue Bonus). For 2020, the target Revenue Bonus for each of Messrs. Hirsch, Bezdek, and Nagji was 100% of his base salary for 2020.  With respect to Mr. Slutsky, his target Revenue Bonus was blended to reflect (i) 50% of his base salary paid in 2020 through September, and (ii) an increased target of 100% of his base salary, effective as of October 1, 2020. Each named executive officer was eligible to receive a bonus expressed as a percentage of his applicable target bonus based on the actual achievement of revenue above 75% of the target revenue goal. During calendar year 2020, the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries achieved a consolidated revenue at a level that triggered the payments equal to 96% of the executive’s target bonus.  The actual bonuses paid are set forth above in the Summary Compensation Table in the column entitled “Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation.”  Because Mr. Nagji’s employment start date was June 16, 2020, he received a prorated Revenue Bonus in 2020 to reflect his partial year of service.

Equity Compensation

We typically grant equity awards to key new hires upon their commencing employment with us. We historically have used stock options as the primary incentive for long-term compensation to our named executive officers because they are able to profit from stock options only if our stock price increases relative to the stock option’s exercise price, which generally is set at or above the fair market value of our Class A common stock as of the applicable grant date. Generally, the stock options we grant vest in equal monthly installments over four years, either monthly during the four-year period or monthly following a one-year cliff, subject to the employee’s continued service with us on the vesting date.

In connection with and following our IPO, we have also granted restricted stock unit awards to certain of our named executive officers.  The equity awards granted to our named executive officers in 2020 are discussed below.

Equity Compensation Plans

Prior to our IPO, our Fifth Amended and Restated 2015 Equity Incentive Plan, or the 2015 Plan, was the primary compensation plan that we used to grant equity awards to our employees, including our executive officers.

In connection with our IPO, our board of directors adopted, and our stockholders approved, the 2020 Incentive Award Plan, referred to below as the 2020 Plan, as the vehicle pursuant to which we may grant of cash and equity incentives.  The 2015 Plan was terminated in connection with the effectiveness of the 2020 Plan, and no further awards have been since our IPO, or will be, granted under the 2015 Plan.

29


 

2020 Equity Grants

Founders IPO Awards. In connection with our IPO, our board of directors approved the grant of restricted stock unit awards covering an aggregate of 12,316,533 shares of Class B common stock under the 2020 Plan to each of Messrs. Hirsch and Bezdek, which we refer to as the Founders Awards.

The Founders Awards became effective upon the completion of the IPO, and each Founders Award consisted of (i) 8,211,022 restricted stock units that vest based on the achievement of performance goals, which we refer to as the Performance‑Vesting Founders Awards and (ii) 4,105,511 restricted stock units that vest based on the passage of time, which we refer to as the Time-Vesting Founders Awards.

The Performance-Vesting Founders Awards were eligible to vest over a seven-year period following the grant date, based on the achievement of stock price goals ranging from $6.07 per share to $51.28 per share. Given our stock price for the post IPO period, all of the stock price goals with respect to the Performance-Vesting Founders Awards were achieved in October 2020; as a result, all 16,422,044 Performance-Vesting Founders Awards vested. Vested restricted stock units will be settled in shares of Class B common stock on the third anniversary of the applicable vesting date or, if earlier, upon a qualifying change in control event or to satisfy certain tax withholding requirements.

The Time-Vesting Founders Awards will vest in substantially equal quarterly installments over the four-year period beginning September 1, 2020, subject to the founder’s continued employment. The Time-Vesting Founders Awards are subject to the following vesting acceleration terms (with any acceleration upon a termination of employment subject to the timely execution and non-revocation of a general release of claims):

 

In the event of a change in control of the Company then up to 25% of the Time-Vesting Founders Award will vest and in the event that the Time-Vesting Founders Award is assumed in connection with a change in control, the vesting period of the award will shorten from four years to three years.

 

Upon a termination of an employment without cause by us or for good reason by the founder, up to 50% of the Time-Vesting Founders Award will accelerate and vest; but if either such termination occurs within 12 months following a Change in Control, then the Time-Vesting Founders Award will accelerate and vest in full.

 

Upon a termination of employment due to death or disability, the next quarterly vesting tranche of the Time-Vesting Founders Award will accelerate and vest.

Slutsky Equity Award.  On October 30, 2020, our board of directors approved the grant of a restricted stock unit award to Mr. Slutsky under the 2020 Plan in order to compensate Mr. Slutsky for his contributions to the Company and to retain and incentivize further superior performance.  The restricted stock unit award covers 1,000,000 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock and will vest in substantially equal quarterly installments over the four-year period commencing on October 1, 2020, subject to Mr. Slutsky’s continued employment with the Company through the applicable vesting date.

Nagji Equity Award.  In connection with the commencement of Mr. Nagji’s employment with us in June 2020, our board of directors approved the grant of a nonqualified stock option award to Mr. Nagji under the 2015 Plan covering an aggregate of 1,500,000 shares of our common stock.  This option vests and becomes exercisable as follows, subject to Mr. Nagji’s continued service with us through the applicable vesting date:

 

as to 700,000 of the shares underlying the option, with respect to 1/48 of such shares on each monthly anniversary of June 10, 2020 (the “Nagji Time-Vesting Schedule”);

 

as to 200,000 of the shares underlying the option, in accordance with the Nagji Time-Vesting Schedule, but if the applicable performance condition (as described below) has not yet been satisfied on any applicable vesting date, then the shares shall vest on the date the performance condition is achieved;

as to 400,000 of the shares underlying the option, (i) as to 50% of such shares, on January 1, 2022 and (ii) as to the remaining 50% of such shares, on the later of January 1, 2022 and the date of the achievement of a modified performance condition; and

 

as to 200,000 of the shares underlying the option, in accordance with the Nagji Time-Vesting Schedule, but if a second modified performance condition has not yet been satisfied on any applicable vesting date, then the shares shall vest on the date the performance condition is achieved.

The performance condition and modified performance conditions related to the achievement of stock price goals in connection with our initial public offering. The performance condition and each of the modified performance conditions set forth in the option agreement were each satisfied in September 2020, such that 25,000 shares vested as of the closing date of our IPO and following such date, the option will vest and become exercisable as follows: (i) as to 1,100,000 of the shares underlying the option, to the extent not vested as of the IPO closing date, in accordance with the Nagji Time-Vesting Schedule; and (ii) as to 400,000 of the shares underlying the option, in full on January 1, 2022.  If Mr. Nagji’s employment is terminated without “cause” or for “good reason” within 24 months after a “sale of the company” (each as defined in the option agreement), then all time-based vesting conditions that apply to the option will be waived and the option will vest and become exercisable in full as of the termination date.

Other Elements of Compensation

Retirement Plans

We currently maintain a 401(k) retirement savings plan for our employees, including our named executive officers, who satisfy certain eligibility requirements. Our named executive officers are eligible to participate in the 401(k) plan on the same terms as other full-time employees. The Code allows eligible employees to defer a portion of their compensation, within prescribed limits, on a pre‑tax basis through contributions to the 401(k) plan. Currently, we match contributions made by participants in the 401(k) plan up to a specified percentage of the employee contributions, and these matching contributions are fully vested as of the date on which the contribution is made. We believe that providing a vehicle for tax-deferred retirement savings through our 401(k) plan, and making fully vested matching contributions, adds to the overall desirability of our executive compensation package and further incentivizes our employees, including our named executive officers, in accordance with our compensation policies. Each named executive officer received Company-paid matching contributions under the 401(k) plan in 2020.

Employee Benefits and Perquisites

Health/Welfare Plans. All of our full-time employees, including our named executive officers, are eligible to participate in our health and welfare plans, including:

 

medical, dental and vision benefits;

 

medical and dependent care flexible spending accounts;

 

short-term and long-term disability insurance; and

 

life insurance.

We believe the perquisites described above are necessary and appropriate to provide a competitive compensation package to our named executive officers.

No Tax Gross-Ups

Except as in limited circumstances with regard to the special bonuses, we have not made gross-up payments to cover our named executive officers’ personal income taxes that may pertain to any of the compensation paid or provided by our company.

In addition, Mr. Nagji is eligible to earn an annual discretionary performance bonus equal to 100% of his base salary (pro-rated for 2020), subject to his continued employment through the end of the applicable performance year.

Pursuant to the offer letter, in the event that the company requires via written notice that Mr. Nagji relocate to our Santa Monica, California, office, and Mr. Nagji relocates within three months of receiving such notice, the company will reimburse Mr. Nagji on a tax grossed-up basis for relocation costs up to $500,000, subject to any applicable tax withholding.  If Mr. Nagji’s employment is terminated without “good reason” or for “cause” (each as defined in the offer letter) within one year following the relocation, 100% of the relocation reimbursement will be repayable to the company.

Pursuant to the offer letter, Mr. Nagji was granted a nonqualified stock option covering 1,500,000 shares of our common stock under the 2015 Plan in June 2020.  Each of the performance conditions set forth in the option agreement was satisfied in September 2020, such that 25,000 shares vested as of the closing date of our IPO and following such satisfaction, the option vests and becomes exercisable as follows: (i) as to 1,100,000 of the shares underlying the option, to the extent not vested as of the IPO closing date, in accordance with the Nagji Time-Vesting Schedule; and (ii) as to 400,000 of the shares underlying the option, in full on January 1, 2022.

For additional discussion regarding this stock option award, please see “—Nagji Equity Award” above.

Pursuant to the offer letter, if Mr. Nagji’s employment is terminated by the company without cause or by him for good reason, he will be eligible to receive 12 months of continued payment of his base salary (subject to his execution and non-revocation of a general release of claims) and any bonus amount that is earned but unpaid as of the termination date.

Amounts reflect the aggregate grant date fair value of restricted stock units and stock options granted in 2020, computed in accordance with the provisions of ASC Topic 718, Stock Compensation. These amounts do not reflect the actual economic value that will be realized by the director upon the vesting, settlement or exercise of the stock option and/or stock award. The assumptions that we used to calculate these amounts are discussed in Note 15 to our audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 12, 2021.

The table below shows the aggregate numbers of shares of our Class A common stock subject to outstanding option awards (exercisable and unexercisable) and/or stock awards (unvested) held as of December 31, 2020 by each non-employee director who was serving as of December 31, 2020.

Board Service Letter Agreements

In April 2016 and June 2016, we entered into board service letter agreements with Dr. Kosecoff and Ms. Rey-Giraud, respectively, pursuant to which they receive $20,000 per year, payable quarterly, for their service as members of our board of directors. Pursuant to the offer letters, in connection with the commencement of their service, each of Ms. Rey-Giraud and Dr. Kosecoff also received a stock option grant covering 0.25% of the fully-diluted equity of the Company as of the date of grant. These options vest in equal monthly installments over the 48 months following the grant date and vest in full upon a “sale of

35


 

the company” (as defined in the 2015 Plan), subject to the director’s continued service through the vesting date or sale of the company, as applicable.

In June 2020, we entered into new board service letter agreements with each of Dr. Kosecoff and Ms. Rey-Giraud, pursuant to which they continue to serve on our board of directors and will receive $30,000 per year, paid quarterly, for their service. Additionally, if Dr. Kosecoff serves on the audit committee of the board of directors, she will receive an additional $8,000 per year, paid quarterly, for her service on this committee. All cash compensation will be pro-rated for any partial quarter of service.

Pursuant to the letter agreements, each of Dr. Kosecoff and Ms. Rey-Giraud was granted a non-statutory option to purchase 30,000 shares of our Class A common stock in June 2020. These options will vest in equal monthly installments over the 12 months following the director’s election date (for Dr. Kosecoff) or August 11, 2020 (for Ms. Rey-Giraud), subject to the director’s continued service through the vesting date. Dr. Kosecoff will also be eligible to receive annual equity grants for continued service as approved by the board of directors.

In August 2020, we entered into a board service letter agreement with Ms. Bradley in connection with the commencement of her service as a member of our board of directors. Pursuant to the board service letter agreement, Ms. Bradley will receive $30,000 per year, paid quarterly, for her service as a member of the board, and an additional $20,000 per year, paid quarterly, for her service as chair of the audit committee of the board of directors. All cash compensation will be pro-rated for any partial quarter of service.

Additionally, pursuant to the letter agreement, Ms. Bradley was granted two restricted stock unit awards in connection with the completion of our IPO: (i) an award of 15,000 restricted stock units corresponding to shares of our Class A common stock, which will vest in equal monthly installments over the three-year period following August 1, 2020, subject to Ms. Bradley’s continued service through the applicable vesting date; and (ii) an award of 7,500 restricted stock units corresponding to shares of our Class A common stock, which will vest in equal monthly installments over the one-year period following August 1, 2020, subject to Ms. Bradley’s continued service through the applicable vesting date.

Post-IPO Director Compensation Program

In connection with our IPO, our board of directors adopted and our stockholders approved a nonemployee director compensation program (the “Director Compensation Program”), which became effective in connection with the completion of our IPO. The Director Compensation Program provides for annual retainer fees and long-term equity awards for certain of our non-employee directors, which currently include Julie Bradley, Jacqueline Kosecoff and Agnes Rey-Giraud (each, an “Eligible Director”). The material terms of the Director Compensation Program are summarized below.

The Director Compensation Program consists of the following components:

Cash Compensation

 

Annual Retainer: $30,000

 

Annual Committee Chair Retainer:

 

Audit: $20,000

 

Compensation: $15,000

 

Nominating and Corporate Governance: $9,000

 

Compliance: $9,000

36


 

 

Annual Committee Member (Non-Chair) Retainer:

 

Audit: $8,000

 

Compensation: $7,000

 

Nominating and Corporate Governance: $4,000

Annual cash retainers will be paid in quarterly installments in arrears and will be pro-rated for any partial calendar quarter of service.

Equity Compensation

 

Initial Grant: Each Eligible Director who is initially elected or appointed to serve on the board of directors will be granted a restricted stock unit award with a value of approximately $420,000 on the date on which such Eligible Director is appointed or elected to serve on the board of directors. These initial grants will vest as to one-third of the shares underlying the grant on each of the first three anniversaries of the grant date, subject to such Eligible Director’s continued service through the applicable vesting date.

 

Annual Grant: An Eligible Director who is serving on the board of directors as of the date of the annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders each calendar year beginning with calendar year 2021 will be granted, on such annual meeting date, a restricted stock unit award with a value of approximately of $210,000. Each annual grant will vest in full on the earlier to occur of (i) the one-year anniversary of the applicable grant date and (ii) the date of the next annual meeting following the grant date, subject to such Eligible Director’s continued service through the applicable vesting date.

In addition, each Initial Grant and Annual Grant will vest in full upon a change in control, other than a non-transactional change in control, of the Company (both as defined in the 2020 Plan).

Compensation under our Director Compensation Program is subject to the annual limits on non-employee director compensation set forth in the 2020 Plan.

SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT

 

The following table sets forth information with respect to the beneficial ownership of our Class A common stock and Class B common stock for:

 

each person known by us to beneficially own more than 5% of our Class A common stock or our Class B common stock;

 

each of our directors and director nominees;

 

each of our named executive officers; and

 

all of our executive officers and directors as a group.

The number of shares beneficially owned by each stockholder as described in this proxy statement is determined under rules issued by the SEC. Under these rules, beneficial ownership includes any shares as to which the individual or entity has sole or shared voting power or investment power. Applicable percentage ownership is based on 69,269,013 shares of Class A common stock and 323,389,392 shares of Class B common stock outstanding as of April 16, 2021.

Each outstanding share of Class B common stock is convertible at any time at the option of the holder into one share of Class A common stock. In addition, each share of Class B common stock will convert automatically into one share of Class A common stock upon any transfer, whether or not for value, which occurs after the closing of this offering, except for certain permitted transfers described in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation, including transfers to family members, trusts solely for the benefit of the stockholder or their family members, and partnerships, corporations, and other entities exclusively owned by the stockholder or their family members, as well as affiliates, subject to certain exceptions. Once converted or transferred and converted into Class A common stock, the Class B common stock may not be reissued. All the outstanding shares of our Class B common stock will convert automatically into shares of our Class A common stock upon the date that is the earlier of (i) seven years from the filing and effectiveness of our amended and restated certificate of incorporation in connection with this offering and (ii) the first date the aggregate number of outstanding shares of Class B common stock ceases to represent at least 10% of the aggregate number of outstanding shares of our common stock. Following such conversion, each share of Class A common stock will have one vote per share and the rights of the holders of all outstanding common stock will be identical. Once converted into Class A common stock, the Class B common stock may not be reissued.

38


 

Unless otherwise indicated, the address of all listed stockholders is 2701 Olympic Boulevard, West Building - Suite 200, Santa Monica, California 90404. Each of the stockholders listed has sole voting and investment power with respect to the shares beneficially owned by the stockholder unless noted otherwise, subject to community property laws where applicable.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED PERSON TRANSACTIONS

 

POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR RELATED PERSON TRANSACTIONS

Our Board has adopted a written Related Person Transaction Policy and Procedures, setting forth the policies and procedures for the review and approval or ratification of related person transactions. This policy covers, with certain exceptions set forth in Item 404 of Regulation S-K, any transaction, arrangement or relationship, or any series of similar transactions, arrangements or relationships, in which we (including any of our subsidiaries) are, were or will be a participant, where the amount involved exceeds $120,000 in any fiscal year and a related person has, had or will have a direct or indirect material interest.

Under the policy, our legal team is responsible for implementing procedures to obtain information with respect to potential related person transactions, and then determining whether such transactions constitute related person transactions subject to the policy. The General Counsel then is required to present to the Audit Committee each proposed related person transaction. In reviewing and approving any such transactions, our Audit Committee is tasked to consider all relevant facts and circumstances, including, but not limited to, whether the transaction is on terms comparable to those that could be obtained in an arm’s length transaction and the extent of the related person’s interest in the transaction and take into account the Company’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics. If advance Audit Committee approval of a related person transaction is not feasible, then the transaction may be preliminarily entered into by management upon prior approval by the Chairperson of the Audit Committee, subject to ratification of the transaction by the Audit Committee at the Audit Committee’s next regularly scheduled meeting. Management is responsible for updating the Audit Committee as to any material changes to any approved or ratified related person transaction and for providing a status report at least annually of all current related person transactions at a regularly scheduled meeting of the Audit Committee. No director may participate in approval of a related person transaction for which he or she is a related person. Unless noted otherwise, all of the transactions, agreements or relationships described in this section occurred prior to the adoption of this policy.

The following are certain transactions, arrangements and relationships with our directors, executive officers and stockholders owning 5% or more of our outstanding Class A common stock or our Class B common stock. We believe that the terms of such agreements are as favorable as those we could have obtained from parties not related to us.

TRANSACTIONS RELATED TO DIRECTORS, EQUITY HOLDERS AND EXECUTIVE OFFICERS
