Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
As more fully described in the definitive proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) of PureCycle Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) relating to its 2023 annual meeting of stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 31, 2023, the board of directors (the “Board”) of the Company proposed amendments to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation that would declassify the Board so that each director would stand for election annually starting at the Annual Meeting (the “proposed amendments”). The proposed amendments are subject to and contingent on stockholder approval at the Annual Meeting.
On March 29, 2023, in order to effect the declassification of the Board if the proposed amendments are approved by the stockholders at the Annual Meeting, the Company’s Class I and Class III directors – consisting of Steven Bouck, Tanya Burnell, Fernando Musa, Dustin Olson and Dr. John Scott – tendered their resignations as members of the Board contingent and effective upon stockholder approval of the proposed amendments at the Annual Meeting. The resignations are solely for purposes of effecting the declassification of the Board if the charter amendment is approved. These directors have agreed to stand for re-election at the Annual Meeting if the Board is declassified. Therefore, if elected to serve on the declassified Board of directors at the Annual Meeting, all of these directors will continue on the Board following the Annual Meeting, until the next annual meeting or their earlier resignation or removal. The conditional resignations of the Class I and Class III directors were not due to any disagreement with the Company, the Board or the management of the Company.
