Item 5.02.

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

On March 26, 2020, electroCore, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that its board of directors (the “Board”) appointed three new members, effective April 2, 2020. The newly appointed board members are Peter Cuneo, John Gandolfo and Thomas Patton (the “New Directors”). As a Class II director, Mr. Patton’s term lasts until the Company’s 2020 annual meeting of stockholders. As Class III directors, Mr. Gandolfo’s and Mr. Cuneo’s term each lasts until the Company’s 2021 annual meeting of stockholders.

Each of the New Directors was appointed to the Audit Committee of the Board, and Mr. Cuneo was also appointed to the Compensation Committee of the Board.

None of the New Directors is a party to, or has any direct or indirect material interest in, any transaction requiring disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K. There are no arrangements or understandings between any of the New Directors and any other persons pursuant to which each was selected as a director.

In connection with their appointment, each of the New Directors is expected to be granted an inaugural award of 150,000 restricted stock units, deferred stock units, or stock options with an exercise price equal to the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Stock Market on April 2, 2020, and in in each case vesting over three years, subject to earlier vesting in the case of a change of control.

Additionally, each of the New Directors and the Company will enter into the Company’s standard form of indemnification agreement for directors and executive officers.

The Company also announced that two current members of the Board, James L.L. Tullis and Nicholas Colucci, will be resigning from the Board immediately prior to the Company’s 2020 annual meeting of stockholders. Mr. Tullis’ and Mr. Colucci’s decisions to resign did not result from any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to Company operations, policies or practices.

In connection with the foregoing, effective April 2, 2020, Michael G. Atieh, a member of the Board, was appointed to the Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board, and Dr. Thomas Errico, a member of the Board, was appointed chairman of the Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board.

The size of the Board will be increased from eight members to 11 members, effective April 2, 2020, and will be reduced to nine members effective immediately prior to the Company’s 2020 annual meeting of stockholders.

A copy of the press release announcing the foregoing matters is filed with this Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.
