Item 1.02.Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.


The information set forth under Item 5.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the agreement terminating the Director Nomination Agreement referred to therein is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated by reference herein, and the information set forth under Item 5.02 is qualified in its entirety by reference thereto.


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


On September 1, 2022, Clarivate Plc issued a press release announcing that Jonathan Gear had assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer with the retirement of Jerre Stead from that role. The press release has been filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1. Mr. Gear’s prospective appointment was previously announced by Clarivate via press release and the filing of a Current Report on Form 8-K on July 11, 2022, which is amended hereby.


Mr. Stead has transitioned to non-executive Chairman of Clarivate’s Board of Directors. Mr. Stead has informed Clarivate that following the Board meeting scheduled for October 20, 2022, he will retire from the Board of Directors. The Board has appointed Mr. Stead as Chairman Emeritus upon his retirement from the Board. Mr. Stead will serve in this capacity through the date of Clarivate’s 2025 annual shareholder meeting and during this time will continue to vest into his equity compensation. A copy of the Chairman Emeritus Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2 and incorporated by reference herein, and the information set forth under this Item 5.02 is qualified in its entirety by reference thereto.


Clarivate’s Board has unanimously appointed Andrew M. Snyder as its new Chairman effective upon Mr. Stead’s retirement from the Board. Mr. Snyder is CEO of Cambridge Information Group and is currently Vice Chairman of Clarivate. He was previously Chair of ProQuest and joined the Board upon Clarivate’s acquisition of ProQuest in December 2021. Mr. Snyder was previously entitled to be nominated as a Clarivate director through December 1, 2024 pursuant to a Director Nomination Agreement entered into at the closing of Clarivate’s acquisition of ProQuest. On August 29, 2022, Mr. Snyder and Clarivate agreed to terminate the Director Nomination Agreement.


Anthony Munk currently serves as Lead Independent Director of the Board. Upon Mr. Snyder’s assumption of the Chairmanship, because Mr. Snyder is an independent director, Clarivate will no longer have a Lead Independent Director role.
