On September 9, 2021, Altice USA, Inc. (the “Company”) and Abdelhakim Boubazine mutually agreed to Mr. Boubazine’s resignation as President, Telecom and Chief Operating Officer of the Company effective September 9, 2021 and entered into a Transition Agreement (the “Transition Agreement”) pursuant to which Mr. Boubazine will serve as a Senior Advisor to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer through December 31, 2021 (the “Separation Date”).
While employed as a Senior Advisor to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Boubazine will continue to receive his base salary in effect immediately prior to his resignation and be eligible to participate in the Company’s benefit plans subject to the terms thereof.

Following the Separation Date, Mr. Boubazine will have the right to receive (i) payment of one year of his most recent annual base salary, payable over a 12-month period, (ii) payment of his 2021 annual bonus in March 2022 based on salary paid in 2021, as determined by the Company at the time based on the business performance of the Company, and (iii) three months of Company-subsidized COBRA coverage. Mr. Boubazine’s entitlement to the payments and benefits described in the foregoing sentence are subject to his execution and non-revocation of a form of separation agreement (the “Separation Agreement”). Mr. Boubazine will be subject to confidentiality covenants, as well as a 12-month post-termination covenant not to compete and 12-month covenant not to solicit employees, customers and vendors. In addition, each of Mr. Boubazine and the Company agree to release claims against the other party.
