Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
Equity Award Grants
On August 2, 2022, the Compensation Committee (the "Committee") of the Board of Directors of Arhaus, Inc. (the “Company”) approved grants of performance stock units (“PSUs”) and restricted stock units (“RSUs”) under the Arhaus, Inc. 2021 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2021 Plan”) to certain of the Company’s named executive officers and other key employees. Each of Dawn Phillipson, Chief Financial Officer, and Kathy Veltri, Chief Retail Officer, received 12,500 RSUs and a target award of 37,500 PSUs (the “PSU Target Award”).
The material terms of the RSUs and PSUs are set forth in a notice of award (the “Award Notice”), a form of which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2022.
RSUs
Each RSU represents a contingent right to receive one share of the Company’s Class A common stock upon vesting. The RSUs vest in one-third increments on each of the first, second and third anniversary of the date of grant, provided that the executive officer continues to serve the Company through the applicable vesting date (“Continuous Service”). If the executive officer’s Continuous Service terminates for any reason other than death, Disability or in connection with a Change in Control (as such terms are defined in the 2021 Plan), unless the Committee determines otherwise, all RSUs that are unvested at the time of such termination shall be forfeited and canceled immediately without consideration.
If the executive officer’s Continuous Service terminates due to death or Disability, any unvested RSUs will become fully vested.
If there is a Change in Control, unless otherwise determined by the Committee, any unvested RSUs that are not assumed or substituted with a substantially equivalent award by the successor corporation will become fully vested immediately prior to the Change in Control. If the executive officer’s Continuous Service is terminated without Cause (as defined in the 2021 Plan) within the sixty (60) days preceding or the twenty-four (24) months following the Change in Control, then any unvested RSUs shall vest upon the later of the date of the termination of Continuous Service and the date of the Change in Control.
PSUs
Each PSU represents a contingent right to receive one share of the Company’s Class A common stock. The number of PSUs earned will be based on the Company’s financial performance as measured against pre-established target goals for cumulative demand revenue and cumulative adjusted EBITDA (the “Performance Goals”) over the period beginning on January 1, 2022 and ending on December 31, 2024 (the “Performance Period”). PSUs will vest as of the end of the Performance Period (December 31, 2024) subject to the executive officer’s Continuous Service, but will not settle and payout until the number of PSUs earned is determined by the Committee. The executive officer may earn between 0% and 200% of the PSU Target Award based on the Company’s achievement of the Performance Goals.
If the executive officer’s Continuous Service terminates for any reason other than: (i) for Cause (as defined in the 2021 Plan); (ii) death; (iii) Disability; or (iv) in connection with a Change in Control, unless the Committee determines otherwise, all unvested PSUs shall be forfeited and canceled immediately without consideration.
If the executive officer’s Continuous Service terminates for Cause, the PSUs, whether or not vested, will be forfeited and canceled immediately without consideration.
If the executive officer’s Continuous Service terminates due to death prior to the end of the Performance Period, the PSUs will be earned and paid immediately based on the PSU Target Award. If the executive officer’s Continuous Service terminates due to death after the Performance Period, but prior to payout, the PSUs will be earned and paid based on the Company’s achievement of the Performance Goals as if the executive officer's Continuous Service had not terminated.
If the executive officer’s Continuous Service terminates due to Disability, the PSUs will be earned and paid based on the Company’s achievement of the Performance Goals as if the executive officer's Continuous Service had not terminated.




If there is a Change in Control, unless otherwise determined by the Committee, unvested PSUs that are not assumed or substituted with a substantially equivalent award by the successor corporation will be earned and paid immediately prior to the Change in Control based on the greater of: (i) target or (ii) the level of attainment of Performance Goals at the time of the Change in Control as determined by the Committee in good faith.
If the executive officer’s Continuous Service is terminated without Cause (as defined in the 2021 Plan) within the sixty (60) days preceding or the twenty-four (24) months following the Change in Control, unvested PSUs will be earned and paid based on the greater of: (i) target or (ii) the level of attainment of Performance Goals at the conclusion of the Performance Period as determined by the Committee in good faith.
The foregoing description of the terms of the Award Notice is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Award Notice, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2022.
