Committees of the Board of Directors and Meetings

 

Meeting Attendance. During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, there were 11 meetings of our Board of Directors, and the various committees of the Board of Directors met a total of 15 times. No director attended fewer than 75% of the total number of meetings of the Board and of committees of the Board of Directors on which he or she served during fiscal 2019. The Board of Directors has adopted a policy under which each member of the Board of Directors is strongly encouraged to attend each annual meeting of our stockholders. All of our directors attended our annual meeting of stockholders held in 2019.

 

Audit Committee . Our Audit Committee met 7 times during fiscal 2019. This committee currently has four members, Steven Koehler (Chairman), Carole S. Ben-Maimon, M.D., John Celentano and Thomas J. Sabatino, Jr. Our Audit Committee’s role and responsibilities are set forth in the Audit Committee’s written charter and include the authority to retain and terminate the services of our independent registered public accounting firm. In addition, the Audit Committee reviews annual financial statements, considers matters relating to accounting policy and internal controls and reviews the scope of annual audits. All members of the Audit Committee satisfy the current independence standards promulgated by the SEC and by the Nasdaq Marketplace Rules, as such standards apply specifically to members of audit committees. The Board of Directors has determined that Mr. Koehler is an “audit committee financial expert,” as the SEC has defined that term in Item 407 of Regulation S-K. Please also see the report of the Audit Committee set forth elsewhere in this Form 10-K/A.

 

A copy of the Audit Committee’s written charter is publicly available on our website at www.teligent.com .

 

Organization and Compensation Committee . Our Organization and Compensation Committee met 7 times during fiscal 2019. This committee currently has three members, John Celentano (Chairman), James C. Gale and Bhaskar Chaudhuri. Our Organization and Compensation Committee’s role and responsibilities are set forth in the Organization and Compensation Committee’s written charter, and includes reviewing, approving and making recommendations regarding our compensation policies, practices and procedures to ensure that legal and fiduciary responsibilities of the Board of Directors are carried out and that such policies, practices and procedures contribute to our success. Our Organization and Compensation Committee also administers our 2016 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended (the “ 2016 Plan ”). The Organization and Compensation Committee is responsible for the determination of the compensation of our chief executive officer, and shall conduct its decision-making process with respect to that issue without the chief executive officer present. All members of the Organization and Compensation Committee qualify as independent under the Nasdaq Marketplace Rules.

 

The Organization and Compensation Committee did not utilize the services of an independent compensation consultant in fiscal 2019. The Organization and Compensation Committee’s independent compensation consultant during fiscal year 2018 was Pearl Meyer. Pearl Meyer was engaged by, and reported directly to, the Organization and Compensation Committee, which had the sole authority to hire or fire them and to approve fee arrangements for work performed. Pearl Meyer assisted the Organization and Compensation Committee in fulfilling its responsibilities under its charter, including advising on proposed compensation packages for executive officers and directors, compensation program design and market practices generally. The Organization and Compensation Committee authorized Pearl Meyer to interact with management on behalf of the Organization and Compensation Committee, as needed, in connection with advising the Organization and Compensation Committee, and Pearl Meyer was included in discussions with management. Pearl Meyer assisted the Organization and Compensation Committee in defining the appropriate market of our peer companies for executive compensation and practices. Pearl Meyer also assisted the Organization and Compensation Committee in comparing our director compensation program and practices against those of our peers. We used the information that we obtained from Pearl Meyer primarily for evaluating our executive compensation practices, including measuring the competitiveness of our practices. The Organization and Compensation Committee has assessed the independence of Pearl Meyer pursuant to SEC rules and the corporate governance rules of The Nasdaq Stock Market and concluded that Pearl Meyer’s work with and on behalf of the Organization and Compensation Committee raises no conflict of interest.

 

The Organization and Compensation Committee, and, where applicable, the Chief Executive Officer reviews the performance of each named executive officer in light of the above factors and determines whether the named executive officer should receive any increase in base salary or receive a discretionary equity award based on such evaluation. During fiscal year 2019, the Organization and Compensation Committee determined the appropriate levels of compensation for our named executives by evaluating and weighting the achievement of certain corporate goals. The Organization and Compensation Committee also considered each executive’s weighted personal key performance indicator score, base salary, performance target and target of bonus for each such executive.

 

A copy of the Organization and Compensation Committee’s written charter is publicly available on our website at www.teligent.com .

Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee . Our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee met once during fiscal 2019 and has three members, Bhaskar Chaudhuri (Chairman), James C. Gale and Carole S. Ben-Maimon, M.D. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee’s role and responsibilities are set forth in the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee’s written charter and include evaluating and making recommendations to the full Board of Directors as to the size and composition of the Board of Directors and its committees, evaluating and making recommendations as to potential candidates and evaluating current Board of Directors members’ performance. All members of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee qualify as independent under the Nasdaq Marketplace Rules.

 

If a stockholder wishes to nominate a candidate for director who is not to be included in our proxy statement, it must follow the procedures described in our Amended and Restated By-Laws.

 

In addition, under our current corporate governance policies, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may consider candidates recommended by stockholders as well as from other sources, such as other directors or officers, third party search firms or other appropriate sources. For all potential candidates, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may consider all factors it deems relevant, such as a candidate’s personal integrity and sound judgment, business and professional skills and experience, independence, knowledge of the industry in which we operate, possible conflicts of interest, diversity, the extent to which the candidate would fill a present need on the Board of Directors, and concern for the long-term interests of our stockholders. In general, persons recommended by stockholders will be considered on the same basis as candidates from other sources. If a stockholder wishes to propose a candidate for consideration as a nominee by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee under our corporate governance policies, it should submit such recommendation in writing to our Corporate Secretary at our corporate offices, 105 Lincoln Avenue, PO Box 687, Buena, New Jersey 08310.

 

The Nominating and Governance Committee considers issues of diversity among its members in identifying and considering nominees for director, and strives, where appropriate, to achieve a diverse balance of backgrounds, perspectives and experience on the board and its committees. The Nominating and Governance Committee seeks to develop a Board that reflects diverse backgrounds, experience, expertise, skill sets and viewpoints, actively seeking director candidates who bring diversity of age, gender, nationality, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.

 

A copy of the Nominating and Governance Committee’s written charter is publicly available on the our website at www.teligent.com .

 

Organization and Compensation Committee Interlocks and Insider Participation. Our Organization and Compensation Committee has three members, John Celentano (Chairman), James C. Gale and Carole S. Ben-Maimon, M.D. No member of the Organization and Compensation Committee has been an officer or employee of Teligent. None of our executive officers serves on the board of directors or compensation committee of a company that has an executive officer that serves on our Board of Directors or Organization and Compensation Committee.

 

Board of Directors Leadership Structure and Role in Risk Oversight

 

Our Board of Directors has six independent members and one non-independent member who serves as our Chief Executive Officer. We believe that the number of independent, experienced directors that make up our Board of Directors, along with the independent oversight of the Board of Directors by the Non-Executive Chairman, benefits our Company and our stockholders. All of our independent directors have demonstrated leadership in other organizations and are familiar with board of director processes.

 

The Chairman of the Board of Directors presides at all meetings of the Board of Directors. The Chairman is appointed on an annual basis by a majority vote of the directors. Currently, the offices of Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer are separated. We have no fixed policy with respect to the separation of the offices of the Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer. Currently, two separate individuals serve in the positions of Chairman of our Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer. We believe that our current leadership structure is optimal for the Company at this time.

 

Our management is principally responsible for defining the various risks facing the Company, formulating risk management policies and procedures, and managing our risk exposures on a day-to-day basis. The Board of Directors’ principal responsibility in this area is to ensure that sufficient resources, with appropriate technical and managerial skills, are provided throughout the Company to identify, assess and facilitate processes and practices to address material risk and to monitor our risk management processes by informing itself concerning our material risks and evaluating whether management has reasonable controls in place to address the material risks. The involvement of the Board of Directors in reviewing our business strategy is an integral aspect of the Board of Directors’ assessment of management’s tolerance for risk and also its determination of what constitutes an appropriate level of risk for the Company.

 

7

 

 

While the full Board of Directors has overall responsibility for risk oversight, the Board of Directors has elected to delegate oversight responsibility related to certain risks committees, which, in turn, report on the matters discussed at the committee level to the full Board of Directors. For instance, our Audit Committee focuses on the material risks facing the Company, including operational, market, credit, liquidity and legal risks. Additionally, our Organization and Compensation committee could be charged with reviewing and discussing with management whether our compensation arrangements are consistent with effective controls and sound risk management. Our management reports to the Board of Directors and Audit Committee on a regular basis regarding risk management.

 

Stockholder Communications to the Board of Directors

 

Stockholders who wish to send communications to our Board of Directors may do so by sending them c/o Teligent, Inc., Corporate Secretary, 105 Lincoln Avenue, PO Box 687, Buena, New Jersey 08310. Such communications may be addressed either to specified individual directors or the entire Board of Directors. The Corporate Secretary will have the discretion to screen and not forward to directors communications that the Corporate Secretary determines are communications unrelated to our business or governance, commercial solicitations, offensive, obscene, or otherwise inappropriate. The Corporate Secretary will, however, compile all stockholder communications that are not forwarded and such communications will be available to any director.

 

Code of Conduct and Ethics

 

We have adopted a code of conduct and ethics, the Standards of Business Conduct that applies to all of our employees, including our chief executive officer and chief financial and accounting officers. The text of the Standards of Business Conduct is posted on our website at  www.teligent.com . Disclosure regarding any amendments to, or waivers from, provisions of the code of conduct and ethics that apply to our directors, principal executive and financial officers will be included in a Current Report on Form 8-K within four business days following the date of the amendment or waiver, unless website posting or the issuance of a press release of such amendments or waivers is then permitted by the rules of Nasdaq.

 

Report of Audit Committee

 

The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, which consists entirely of directors who meet the independence and experience requirements of Nasdaq, has furnished the following report:

 

The Audit Committee assists the Board of Directors in overseeing and monitoring the integrity of our financial reporting process, compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and the quality of internal and external audit processes. This committee’s role and responsibilities are set forth in our charter adopted by the Board of Directors, which is available on our website at  www.teligent.com . This committee reviews and reassesses our charter annually and recommends any changes to the Board of Directors for approval. The Audit Committee is responsible for overseeing our overall financial reporting process, and for the appointment, compensation, retention and oversight of the work of Deloitte & Touche LLP. In fulfilling its responsibilities for the financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, the Audit Committee took the following actions:

 

· Reviewed and discussed the audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 with management and Deloitte & Touche LLP, our independent registered public accounting firm;

 

· Discussed with Deloitte & Touche LLP the matters required to be discussed in accordance with Auditing Standard No. 1301 -  Communications with Audit Committees ; and

 

· Received written disclosures and the letter from Deloitte & Touche LLP regarding its independence as required by applicable requirements of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board regarding Deloitte & Touche LLP’s communications with the Audit Committee and further discussed with Deloitte & Touche LLP their independence. The Audit Committee also considered the status of pending litigation, taxation matters and other areas of oversight relating to the financial reporting and audit process that the committee determined appropriate.

Based on the Audit Committee’s review of the audited financial statements and discussions with management and Deloitte & Touche LLP, the Audit Committee recommended to the Board of Directors that the audited financial statements be included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

Termination by us without cause.  If the executive’s employment is terminated by the Company without cause (as defined below), we are required to pay (i) their unpaid base salary through the effective date of termination and any reimbursable business expenses; (ii) the executive’s base salary as then in effect for a period of six months following termination of employment; and (iii) the executive’s annual performance bonus that would otherwise have been payable to the executive for the year in which the termination occurs, prorated as of the date of termination. Further, to the extent then unvested, upon such termination, a pro-rata portion of the executive’s options and restricted stock will become vested. However, any such payment obligations shall immediately terminate upon a judicial determination that the executive has breached certain confidentiality, non-solicitation, non-competition and/or conflict of interest provisions under their respective employment agreements.

 

Termination for any other reason.  If the executive’s employment is terminated by the Company other than without cause (as defined below), including, but limited to, termination for cause, as a result of the executive’s death or disability, or as a result of the executive’s resignation, we are required to pay their unpaid base salary through the effective date of termination.

Payments upon Termination of Change in Control as of January 9, 2020:

 

On January 9, 2020, the Organization and Compensation Committee approved the Teligent, Inc. Change in Control Severance Policy (the “Policy”). The purpose of the Policy is to provide certain Company employees, including the Company’s named executive officers, with certain compensation and other benefits in the event of a termination of employment by the Company (or its acquirer or successor) without Cause (as defined below) or by such employee for Good Reason (as defined below) that occurs during the period following the date on which a Change of Control (as defined below) is consummated, as designated in the addendum to the Policy for a participant's applicable salary grade classification. In addition, if an eligible employee is entitled to similar severance or benefit continuation under another Company severance policy or an employment or severance agreement with the Company or an affiliate, any severance payable or benefits provided under such other arrangement will reduce or otherwise offset the severance benefits provided under the Policy.

 

In the event of a qualifying termination, the Policy makes available benefits to the participants in a tiered approach, with the nature of the benefits provided based upon the seniority of the position such participant occupies. Upon a qualifying termination, the Company’s named executive officers will receive (i) base salary continuation payments for a period of twelve months following the qualifying termination; (ii) a prorated portion of the target bonus for the year in which the qualifying termination occurs (the “Prorated Bonus”); (iii) an amount equal to the target annual bonus and (iv) continued medical, dental and vision coverage under COBRA, which ceases after twelve months or when the individual becomes covered by another employer program, whichever occurs first. As more fully described in the Policy, upon a qualifying termination other participants will receive (i) base salary continuation payments for a period ranging from three months to twelve months (with certain participants entitled to additional base salary continuation payments based upon years of service to the Company); (ii) a Prorated Bonus; (iii) for certain participants, an amount equal to the target annual bonus and (iv) continued medical, dental and vision coverage under COBRA for periods ranging from six months to twelve months (or ceasing earlier if such participant becomes covered by another employer program).

 

In each case, receipt of any compensation or benefits under the Policy is subject to the participant’s execution of a general release of claims in favor of the Company, its successors and affiliates, and each of their officers, directors and employees. In the event a participant has beached any duty of confidentiality, non-solicitation or non-competition owing to the Company, the participant will forfeit all further benefits payable under the Policy and will, at the Organization and Compensation Committee’s direction, be required to repay to the Company any benefits previously received under the Policy.

 

For purposes of the Policy:

 

Cause   means "Cause" as defined in the participant's applicable employment or severance agreement, if any; or, if the participant has no employment or severance agreement or there is no such definition in the employment or severance agreement, "Cause" means the occurrence of one or more of the following events: (i) any act or omission to act by the participant which would reasonably be likely to have a material adverse effect on the business of the Company; (ii)  the participant's conviction (including any pleas of guilty or  nolo contendere)  of any felony or any other crime (other than ordinary traffic violations); (iii) the participant's material misconduct or willful and deliberate   non-performance of his or her duties (other than as a result of disability); (iv) the p articipant's theft, embezzlement, dishonesty or fraud with   respect to the Company; (v) the p articipant's commission of an act involving fraud, dishonesty   or moral turpitude which is actually or potentially injurious to the business interests or reputation of the Company; (vi) t he participant's material breach of any written policy applicable   to employees of the Company and its affiliates, where such breach is actually or potentially injurious to the business interests or reputation of the Company; or (vii) t he participant's unauthorized disclosure of any confidential or proprietary information of the Company or its affiliates.

 

Good Reason   means "Good Reason" as defined in the employee's applicable employment agreement, if any; or, if the employee has no employment agreement or there is no such definition in the employment agreement, "Good Reason" means the occurrence of any of the following events, without the participant's written consent: (i) a material reduction in the amount of the participant's base salary as of the date immediately prior to a Change of Control; (ii) the participant's job responsibilities are substantially reduced in scope compared with his or her duties as of the date immediately prior to a Change of Control; or (iii) a material change in the participant's principal place of employment to a location more than thirty-five (35) miles from his or her place of employment as of the date immediately prior to a Change of Control.

 

16

 

 

Change of Control   means any of the following events: (i) a ny individual, firm, corporation or other entity, or any group (as   defined in Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act) becomes, directly or indirectly, the beneficial owner (as defined in Rule 13d-3 as promulgated under the Exchange Act) of more than fifty percent (50%) of the then outstanding shares of the Company's common stock entitled to vote generally in the election of members of the Board of Directors; or (ii) the consummation of (a) a merger or other business combination of the Company with or into another corporation pursuant to which the stockholders of the Company do not own, immediately after the transaction, more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting power of the corporation that survives or (b) a sale, exchange or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company.

 

Director Compensation

 

Effective January 1, 2016, after consultation with its compensation consultant, our Board of Directors unanimously revised the non-employee director compensation program. Under the Company’s new non-executive director compensation policy, each non-executive director of the Board of Directors shall receive the following compensation:

 

· an annual cash retainer of $25,000;

 

· an annual grant of options to purchase 20,000 shares of common stock;

 

· each member of the Audit Committee receives an annual cash retainer equal to $10,000, and the Chairman of the Audit Committee receives an additional cash retainer equal to $10,000;

 

· each member of the Organization and Compensation Committee receives an annual cash retainer equal to $7,500, and the Chairman of the Organization and Compensation Committee receives an additional cash retainer equal to $7,500; and

 

· each member of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee receives an annual cash retainer equal to $5,000, and the Chairman of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee receives an additional cash retainer equal to $5,000.

 

In addition, at the time of his or her appointment, each newly elected director shall be granted options to purchase 20,000 shares of our common stock and shall receive payment of the applicable cash retainers, pro-rated for the duration of service during the year in which he or she has been appointed.

The following table shows the total compensation paid or accrued during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019   to each of our non-employee directors. Directors who are employed by us are not compensated for their service on our Board of Directors. During fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, our non-employee directors were also granted options to purchase shares of common stock in lieu of their annual cash retainers as (i) a member of the Board, (ii) member of any committee on which he or she served, or (iii) for service as chairman of a committee on which he or she served. Mr. Sawyer, who serves as our Chief Executive Officer, does not receive additional compensation for his service as a director and, therefore, is not included in the Director Compensation table below. Mr. Grenfell-Gardner, who served as our Chief Executive Officer until February 4, 2020, did not receive additional compensation for his service as a director for the year ended December 31, 2019 and, therefore, is not included in the Director Compensation table below. All compensation paid to Mr. Grenfell-Gardner is reported in the Summary Compensation Table included under “ Executive Compensation .”

Except as indicated in footnotes to this table, we believe that the stockholders named in this table have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of common stock shown to be beneficially owned by them based on information provided to us by these stockholders.

Item 13. CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE

 

Director Independence

 

Our Board of Directors has reviewed the materiality of any relationship that each of our directors has with Teligent, either directly or indirectly. Based upon this review, our Board of Directors has determined that the following members of the Board of Directors are “independent directors” as defined by the Nasdaq Marketplace Rules: James C. Gale, Bhaskar Chaudhuri, Steven Koehler, John Celentano, Carole S. Ben-Maimon, M.D and Thomas J. Sabatino, Jr.

 

Other than the compensation agreements and other arrangements which are described in the “ Executive Compensation ” section of this Form 10-K, during our last fiscal year, there has not been, and there is not currently proposed, any transaction or series of similar transactions to which we were or will be a party in which the amount involved exceeded $120,000 and in which any of our directors, nominees for director, executive officers, holders of more than five percent of any class of our voting securities or any member of the immediate family of the foregoing persons had or will have a direct or indirect material interest.

 

Policies and Procedures Regarding Review, Approval, or Ratification of Related Person Transactions

 

The Audit Committee is responsible for reviewing and approving in advance the terms and conditions of all related person transactions. In carrying out its responsibilities, the Audit Committee reviews and considers information regarding the related person transaction as it deems appropriate under the circumstances, which may include information such as the related person’s interest in the transaction, the approximate dollar value involved in the transaction, whether the transaction was undertaken in the ordinary course of business, whether the terms of the transaction are no less favorable to us than terms that could have been reached with an unrelated third party and the purpose of, and the potential benefits to us of, the transaction. The Audit Committee may approve or ratify the transaction only if it determines that, under all of the circumstances, the transaction is not inconsistent with our best interests.

 

Item 14. PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTING FEES AND SERVICES

 

Deloitte & Touche LLP, our independent registered public accounting firm, audited our financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019. EisnerAmper LLP served as our independent registered public accounting firm until August 13, 2018, at which time they were dismissed and Deloitte & Touche LLP was appointed.

 

The following table presents fees for professional audit services rendered by each of Deloitte & Touche LLP and EisnerAmper LLP for the audit of the Company’s annual financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, and fees billed for other services rendered by each of Deloitte & Touche LLP and EisnerAmper LLP during those periods

 

    2019     2018  
Audit fees: (1)   $ 1,087,000     $ 1,648,970  
Audit-related fees:   $        
Tax fees:   $        
All other fees:   $        
Total   $ 1,087,000     $ 1,648,970  

 

(1) Audit fees consisted of audit work performed in the preparation of financial statements, as well as work generally only the independent registered public accounting firm can reasonably be expected to provide, such as statutory audits. For 2019, $915,000 of the amount reflects the Deloitte & Touche LLP fees and $172,000 of the amount reflects the EisnerAmper LLP fees. For 2018, $1,000,000 of the amount reflects the Deloitte & Touche LLP fees and $648,970 of the amount reflects the EisnerAmper LLP fees.

 

The percentage of services set forth above in the categories that were approved by the Audit Committee pursuant to Rule 2-01(c)(7)(i)(C) (relating to the approval of a de minimis amount of non-audit services after the fact but before completion of the audit), was 0%.

Policy on Audit Committee Pre-Approval of Audit and Permissible Non-audit Services of Independent Public Accountant

 

Consistent with SEC policies regarding auditor independence, the Audit Committee has responsibility for appointing, setting compensation and overseeing the work of our independent registered public accounting firm. In recognition of this responsibility, the Audit Committee has established a policy to pre-approve all audit and permissible non-audit services provided by our independent registered public accounting firm.

 

Prior to engagement of an independent registered public accounting firm for the next year’s audit, management will submit an aggregate of services expected to be rendered during that year for each of four categories of services to the Audit Committee for approval.

 

1.           Audit  services include audit work performed in the preparation of financial statements, as well as work that generally only an independent registered public accounting firm can reasonably be expected to provide, including comfort letters, statutory audits and attest services and consultation regarding financial accounting and/or reporting standards.

 

2.           Audit-Related  services are for assurance and related services that are traditionally performed by an independent registered public accounting firm, including due diligence related to mergers and acquisitions, employee benefit plan audits and special procedures required to meet certain regulatory requirements.

 

3.           Tax  services include all services performed by an independent registered public accounting firm’s tax personnel except those services specifically related to the audit of the financial statements, and includes fees in the areas of tax compliance, tax planning and tax advice.

 

4.           Other Fees  are those associated with services not captured in the other categories. The Company generally does not request such services from our independent registered public accounting firm.

 

Prior to engagement, the Audit Committee pre-approves these services by category of service. The fees are budgeted and the Audit Committee requires our independent registered public accounting firm and management to report actual fees versus the budget periodically throughout the year by category of service. During the year, circumstances may arise when it may become necessary to engage our independent registered public accounting firm for additional services not contemplated in the original pre-approval. In those instances, the Audit Committee requires specific pre-approval before engaging our independent registered public accounting firm.

 

The Audit Committee may delegate pre-approval authority to one or more of its members. The member to whom such authority is delegated must report, for informational purposes only, any pre-approval decisions to the Audit Committee at its next scheduled meeting.
