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

On May 29, 2024, Portillo’s Inc. (the “Company”) announced that Derrick Pratt will depart from his role as the Company’s Chief Operating Officer, effective June 30, 2024.

Mr. Pratt’s departure from the Company will be treated as a qualifying termination entitling him to certain benefits under the Company’s Senior Executive Severance Plan (the “SESP”). The Separation Agreement will include a general release of claims and certain customary protective covenants in favor of the Company, including certain confidentiality, employee and customer non-solicitation, non-disparagement provisions, and an agreement to cooperate and assist with claims. The Separation Agreement will also provide, subject to Mr. Pratt’s timely execution and non-revocation of a supplemental release of claims in favor of the Company (the “Supplemental Release”), for compensation to be paid consistent with the terms and conditions of the SESP as follows: (a) an amount in cash equal to Mr. Pratt’s Annual Base Salary, which shall be payable in substantially equal installments over the applicable Severance Period in accordance with the Company’s normal payroll practices; (b) any prorated 2024 Annual Bonus, payable in a lump sum in cash on the date on which the Company pays out the applicable Annual Bonus; (c) if Mr. Pratt timely elects COBRA coverage, reimbursement for the cost of health insurance continuation coverage under COBRA in excess of the cost that employees are otherwise required to pay for health insurance benefits under the plan until the earlier of (i) the end of the COBRA Period and (ii) the date on which Mr. Pratt obtains comparable alternative insurance coverage; and (d) outplacement services for up to 12 months from the Termination Date, up to a maximum value of $25,000.

In addition, and subject to the timely execution and non-revocation of the Supplemental Release, Mr. Pratt’s 24,334 pre-IPO nonqualified stock options (“pre-IPO Options”), and his 20,834 Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs”), both of which are scheduled to vest later in 2024, shall vest on June 30, 2024. The pre-IPO Options will remain exercisable through the 10th anniversary of the original grant date of September 14, 2020. Any other equity grants will be forfeited.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereto duly authorized.
