ITEM 5.02
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
 
On August 29, 2011, Oxis International, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), appointed David Saloff to serve as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer through March 31, 2012 (the “Original Term”).  Mr. Saloff currently is a director on the Company’s Board of Directors.  After March 31, 2012, Mr. Saloff will continue to serve as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer until and unless the employment is terminated by either the Company or Mr. Saloff upon 60 days’ notice.   However, if the Company obtains debt or equity financing of at least $2 million in the aggregate after the date of his appointment (the “Funding”), the term of Mr. Saloff’s employment will be extended for an additional three years.
 
Prior to the Funding, Mr. Saloff will receive a base salary of $15,000 per month, and will receive a bonus of $90,000 upon the completion of the Funding.  In connection with this employment, Mr. Saloff was granted an option to purchase up to 538,713 shares of the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”), which vests quarterly over a period of one year following the date of grant, at an exercise price of $0.0535 per share, the last trading price on the date of grant.  The option expires after ten years.
 
If the Funding is obtained, commencing on the date of the Funding, the Original Term will be extended for an additional three years, and Mr. Saloff’s base salary will increase to $18,000 per month.  Upon achieving certain milestones to be established by the Company’s Board of Directors, Mr. Saloff may receive a year-end bonus up to 100% of his annual base salary, $216,000.  In addition, if the Funding is obtained, the Company will grant Mr. Saloff an additional option to purchase the number of shares of Common Stock equal to 7.5% of the total shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Funding.  The option will have an exercise price equal to the closing trading price on the date of the Funding.  This option will vest over a period of three years following the date of the grant and will have a ten year term.
 
As disclosed in our previous Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 7, 2011, Mr. Saloff, 58, was appointed to our Board of Directors on June 30, 2011, and is currently the Chief Executive Officer of Age Reversal, Inc., a position he has held since September 2010.
