On the Effective Date, the iHeartMedia, Inc. 2019 Equity Incentive Plan (the Post-Emergence Equity Plan ) became effective. The Post-Emergence Equity Plan allows the Company to grant stock options and restricted stock units representing up to 12,770,387 shares of Class A common stock for key members of management and service providers and up to 1,596,298 for non-employee members of the board of directors. The amounts of Class A common stock reserved under the Post-Emergence Equity Plan equal 8% and 1%, respectively, of the Companys fully-diluted and distributed shares of Class A common stock as of the Effective Date.

On the Effective Date, the Company entered into employment agreement amendments with each of Messrs. Pittman and Bressler (the Employment Agreement Amendments ). The Employment Agreement Amendments extended the term of the original employment agreement to May 1, 2023, with automatic one-year extensions thereafter (the Term ), unless either party elects not to extend the applicable employment agreement by giving at least 60 days advance written notice of nonrenewal to the other party.
Mr. Pittmans Employment Agreement Amendment provides that, in addition to Mr. Pittmans role as Chief Executive Officer of the Company, Mr. Pittman will also serve as Chairman of the Companys board of directors.
