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


On March 15, 2022, Richard Brenner informed the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of PureCycle Technologies, Inc. (the “Company” or “PureCycle”) of his resignation from the Board, effective March 15, 2022. Mr. Brenner’s decision to resign was not the result of any disagreement with the Company or its management.


Effective March 15, 2022, the Board, upon the recommendation of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, elected Allen W. Jacoby and Stephen F. Bouck as directors of the Company. Mr. Jacoby was elected as a Class II director and Mr. Bouck was elected as a Class III director.

The Board determined that each of Mr. Jacoby and Mr. Bouck qualifies as an independent director under the listing standards of the Nasdaq Stock Market. The Board anticipates naming each of Mr. Jacoby and Mr. Bouck to serve on one or more committees of the Board, but at the time of this Form 8-K, the Board has not determined the committee(s) to which Mr. Jacoby or Mr. Bouck will be named.

Mr. Jacoby and Mr. Bouck will receive compensation for service as non-employee directors of the Company consistent with the compensation generally provided to the Company’s other non-employee directors, as determined by the Board from time to time. Currently, non-employee directors generally receive, among other things, (i) an annual grant of restricted stock units with a targeted fair market value of $100,000; (ii) annual cash compensation of $65,000; (iii) additional amounts between $7,500 and $15,000 for service as a non-chair committee member and (iv) additional amounts between $15,000 and $30,000 for service as a committee chair.

There are no arrangements or understandings between either Mr. Jacoby or Mr. Bouck and any other persons pursuant to which either Mr. Jacoby or Mr. Bouck was selected as a director. Mr. Bouck has no direct or indirect material interest in any transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

On March 15, 2019, Milliken & Company (“Milliken”), Mr. Jacoby’s employer, and PureCycle entered into a 10-year exclusive supply agreement (the “Milliken Agreement”) under which Milliken will supply PureCycle with certain additives needed for the Company’s ultra-pure recycled resin production. Pricing is not specified in the Milliken Agreement, but the agreement notes pricing will be “reasonable,” reflecting industry conditions with initial pricing negotiated in good faith. No payments under the Milliken Agreement are due until initial production at the Company’s Ironton, Ohio facility (“Ironton Facility”) begins. Operations at the Ironton Facility are scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2022. Although Milliken and PureCycle have not yet agreed on initial pricing or specified quantities, based on current market rates and conditions and PureCycle’s forecasted operations timeline, the Company estimates additives needed for 2022 under the Milliken Agreement will cost approximately $385,000.00. Based on operations forecasting, current market conditions as of this 8-K (including significant supply chain disruptions and commodity shortages), and without accounting for changes in pricing or operational efficiencies, the Company estimates the additives needed and to be procured under the remainder of the Milliken Agreement term, including 2022, will cost approximately $107.8 million. Other than the Milliken Agreement, Mr. Jacoby has no direct or indirect material interest in any transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
