EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

This Amendment No. 1 to Current Report on Form 8-K is being filed to amend Item 5.02 of the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by OraSure Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) on August 17, 2018 in order to correct an error in the percentage increase in base salary reported for Mr. Brian Smith, the Executive Vice President, Business Unit Leader, Molecular Solutions at the Company’s Canadian subsidiary, DNA Genotek, Inc.  The last paragraph of Item 5.02, as so amended, is set forth below in its entirety.

 

 

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

 

The Committee also recommended, and the Board authorized, an increase in the annual base salary of Mr. Brian Smith, who serves as Executive Vice President, Business Unit Leader, Molecular Solutions, and heads the Company’s Canadian subsidiary, DNA Genotek.  Mr. Smith’s salary was increased to $334,000 effective January 1, 2018.  This represents an approximate 18% increase in Mr. Smith’s salary and is based on competitive market data provided by the Committee’s independent compensation consultant, the strong performance of the Company’s molecular business and Mr. Smith’s leadership of that business.  Mr. Smith is paid in Canadian dollars and the foregoing amount is based on the U.S./Canadian dollar exchange rate at the time of approval.
