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

On August 19, 2022, 23andMe Holding Co. (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original 8-K”) announcing the appointment of Joseph Selsavage as the Company’s Interim Chief Financial and Accounting Officer (the “Appointment”), with such appointment to be effective as of September 1, 2022 (the “Effective Date”). In accordance with Instruction 2 to Item 5.02 of Form 8-K, the Company is filing this Amendment No. 1 to the Original 8-K (this “Amendment No. 1”) to provide information regarding material changes to Mr. Selsavage’s compensation arrangements as a result of the Appointment (the “Compensation Changes”), which arrangements had not been determined at the time of the filing of the Original 8-K. The Compensation Changes, as described below, were approved by the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Company’s Board of Directors on August 26, 2022.


In connection with the Appointment and beginning on the Effective Date, Mr. Selsavage’s annual base salary will be increased from $370,000 to $455,000 and his target bonus under the Company’s Annual Incentive Plan will be 25% of his annual base salary. The Committee also approved a one-time special retention award of $100,000, which will be paid out in cash to Mr. Selsavage on September 1, 2023, subject to his continued employment with the Company through such date.


Additionally, in connection with the Appointment and to further encourage his retention and long-term commitment to the Company, on August 26, 2022, Mr. Selsavage received a one-time special equity award with an aggregate target value of $1,000,000 (the “Appointment Award”). The Appointment Award was in the form of 50% restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and 50% stock options and vests over a four-year period, with the RSUs vesting in equal 1/16th installments on a quarterly basis and the stock options vesting in equal 1/48th installments on a monthly basis. The vesting of the Appointment Award is subject to continued service for the Company, the terms and conditions of the applicable award agreements, and applicable tax withholding obligations.


Except as expressly set forth herein, this Amendment No. 1 does not amend the Original 8-K in any way and does not modify or update any other disclosures contained in the Original 8-K. This Amendment No. 1 supplements the Original 8-K and should be read in conjunction with the Original 8-K.



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 thereunto duly authorized.
