On June 3, 2024, Profrac Holding Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and Lance Turner, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, entered into a transition and separation agreement (the “Transition Agreement”), pursuant to which Mr. Turner will resign as the Chief Financial Officer of the Company effective June 17, 2024 (the “Separation Date”). In connection with the Transition Agreement, the Company and Mr. Turner entered into a Consulting Agreement, effective June 18, 2024, pursuant to which Mr. Turner agreed to serve as an independent contractor of the Company to provide general finance advice for a period beginning immediately after the Separation Date and for up to four months thereafter (the “Transition Period”). Mr. Turner’s service with the Company will terminate at the conclusion of the Transition Period, and either party may terminate the Consulting Agreement at any time upon notice to the other party.


Pursuant to the Consulting Agreement, during the Transition Period, Mr. Turner will be compensated at an agreed-upon hourly rate of $350. Pursuant to the Transition Agreement, following the Separation Date, the Company agreed (a) to pay Mr. Turner the Severance Amount (as defined in that certain employment agreement, dated as of June 7, 2022, by and between the Company and Mr. Turner, as amended) in an amount equal to $450,000, (b) to pay Mr. Turner a cash payment of $660,000 (the “Lump Sum Payment”) and (c) that certain previously-granted equity awards subject to time-based vesting, consisting of a total of 196,903 restricted stock units (“RSUs”) that were granted pursuant to restricted stock unit grant agreements dated May 24, 2022, March 31, 2023 and March 28, 2024, shall become vested on the Separation Date. Mr. Turner agreed that any unvested performance-based RSUs granted pursuant to restricted stock unit grant agreements dated March 31, 2023 and March 28, 2024 shall be forfeited in exchange for the Lump Sum Payment. For consideration set forth in the Transition Agreement, Mr. Turner agreed to provide a general release of claims related to his employment or termination of his employment with the Company.
