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

On July 13, 2020, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Kaleyra, Inc. (the “Company”) approved a corporate bonus program that will be utilized to calculate cash and equity bonuses that may become payable to the Company’s employees with respect to the second half of fiscal year 2020 (the “Second Half of 2020 Employee MBO Plan”). The Compensation Committee of the Board (the “Compensation Committee”) will administer this plan, which applies to all employees of the Company and its subsidiaries, including its two named executive officers — its Chief Executive Officer, Dario Calogero, and its Chief Financial Officer, Giacomo Dall’Aglio.

The Second Half of 2020 Employee MBO Plan is designed to align employees with the Company’s business goals and strategies, and to further the objectives of the Company’s compensation program. Payouts under the Second Half of 2020 Employee MBO Plan will be determined by the Compensation Committee following the conclusion of the 2020 fiscal year end, and bonuses will be based on the Company achieving objectively determinable Company financial performance targets (the “Company Performance Objectives”), and by employees based on their individual achievement of pre-determined “Management by Objectives” (MBOs). The percentage of the target bonus for the named executive officers that is subject to the Company Performance Objectives and the MBOs will each be fifty percent. The Company Performance Objectives will be measured by the achievement of specific financial goals related to both a revenue and an Adjusted EBITDA achievement requirement for the second half of the 2020 fiscal year. Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure that is not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Adjusted EBITDA is defined as of any date of calculation, as the consolidated pro forma earnings of the Company and its subsidiaries, before finance income and finance cost (including bank charges), tax, depreciation and amortization, plus (i) transaction expenses, (ii) without duplication of clause (i), severance or change of control payments, (iii) any expenses related to company restructuring, (iv) the Adjusted EBITDA for pre-acquisition period of subsidiaries, (v) any compensation expenses relating to stock options, restricted stock units, restricted stock or similar equity interests as may be issued by the Company or any of its subsidiaries to its or their employees and (vi) any provision for the write down of assets. This non-GAAP financial measure is not a measure prepared in accordance with GAAP and might not be consistent with similar measures used by other companies. It shall not be considered as an alternative to any other measures of performance prepared under GAAP.

At target revenue performance, sixty percent of the Company Performance Objectives component of the bonus is earned, and at target Adjusted EBITDA performance, the other forty percent of the Company Performance Objectives component of the bonus is earned. Threshold performance of either the revenue performance or Adjusted EBITDA performance component of the Company Performance Objectives is at eighty percent of target and will result in a proportional portion of the respective component of the Company Performance Objectives being earned.

Any bonuses payable pursuant to the Second Half of 2020 Employment MBO Plan will be paid in a combination of cash and/or in the form of restricted stock units (“RSUs”). For the named executive officers, up to fifty percent of the bonus will be paid in cash and 50% of the bonus will be paid in RSUs. The total amount of the bonus for which each of the named executive officers is eligible is fifty percent of their base salaries for the second half of fiscal year 2020.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
