On August 10, 2022, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Cardinal Health, Inc. (the “Company”) elected Jason M. Hollar, 49, as Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) of the Company, effective September 1, 2022. Mr. Hollar will succeed current CEO Michael C. Kaufmann, who will depart from the Company on September 1, 2022. The Board also elected Mr. Hollar as a director effective August 11, 2022. Mr. Kaufmann will resign as a member of the Board on September 1, 2022.

Mr. Hollar has served as Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) of the Company since May 2020. He previously served as Executive Vice President and CFO of Tenneco Inc. from July 2018 to April 2020. He was Senior Vice President Finance at Tenneco Inc. from June 2017 to June 2018 and CFO of Sears Holding Corporation from October 2016 to April 2017.

In connection with Mr. Hollar assuming the CEO role, the Board's Human Resources and Compensation Committee (the “Compensation Committee”) took the following compensation actions with respect to Mr. Hollar: (i) set his base salary at $1,350,000; (ii) set his target annual bonus at 150% of his salary; (iii) set his target long-term incentive at $11,000,000, which will apply to his annual grant to be made on August 15, 2022; (5) approved an alignment grant of $3,000,000, split equally between performance share units ("PSUs") and restricted share units; and (5) authorized $350,000 in personal use of corporate aircraft.

The Board has determined that Mr. Kaufmann’s departure from the Company will entitle him to severance benefits under the Cardinal Health, Inc.

Receipt of severance benefits is subject to the terms of that plan, including the required execution of a general release and compliance with certain restrictive covenants.
