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


Effective May 23, 2024, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company unanimously approved a change to the compensation payable to Michael Mo, the Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”). Consistent with the Company’s continued efforts to reduce its cash consumption, the CEO has voluntarily agreed to a reduction in the cash component of his annual compensation by approximately 33% or $112,345. In lieu of the reduced cash compensation, the CEO will receive restricted stock units of the Company for 286,230 shares of common stock that will vest after one year.


This adjustment will aid the Company’s efforts in reducing itscash consumption, where such cash can be redirected towards other critical business needs and strategic initiatives. This step also aligns the CEO compensation more closely with the performance of the Company and the interest of its stockholders.

KULR CEO Michael Mo Reduces Cash Salary to Better Align with Shareholder Value Creation


SAN DIEGO / GLOBENEWSWIRE / May 23, 2024 / KULR Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE American: KULR) (the "Company" or "KULR"), global leader in safe and high-performance energy storage solutions, today announced that, in keeping with the Company’s recent efforts to reduce its cash consumption, KULR’s compensation committee approved a voluntary request by CEO Michael Mo to reduce the cash component of his compensation by 33% and, believing in the future of KULR, to instead grant him an equity incentive grant that does not vest for 12 months from such grant date.


The strategic move ensures one-third of Mr. Mo’s salary going forward is provided at market value of the Company’s stock, further aligning his interests with those of shareholders. With this revised compensation model, the CEO's benefits will directly correlate with value creation as the executive team drives the Company's transformation and industry innovation.


KULR CEO and founder Michael Mo commented on his new compensation structure, saying, “During these pivotal moments, it's crucial for us to go back to our technology start-up roots and operate swiftly in a lean and agile fashion. In the first quarter of 2024, we have reduced our operating and investment cash usage by 23% from Q1 of 2023. We will continue to execute that way to grow our business and get to profitability.”


Mo added, “Technology evolves through cycles- and each cycle creates more shareholder value to those who can ride the cumulative and disruptive nature of each wave. We are already seeing early success of our KULR ONE platform in the marketplace. I believe the next three years will present major opportunities for us to capture market share in space, military, and industrial battery applications. I have adjusted my compensation structure to fully align with our shareholders to maximize shareholder value.”


Further details are available in today’s Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
