LivePerson, Inc. (the “Company”) and Timothy E. Bixby entered into a Separation Agreement and General Release on November 2, 2010 (Agreement”) setting forth the terms and conditions of Mr. Bixby’s departure from the Company which include a period of transition through April 2, 2011, subject to earlier termination under certain terms of the Agreement. During the transition period, Mr. Bixby will continue as an employee of the Company, will carry out all duties and responsibilities of his position with the Company and will facilitate a transition of his duties and responsibilities to a successor to be identified by the Company.  During this transition period, Mr. Bixby will continue to receive his current base salary and benefits.

Further, in connection with Mr. Bixby’s transition and separation, and in exchange for Mr. Bixby’s performance under the Agreement and signing of a general release of claims in favor of the Company, Mr. Bixby will receive (i) a payment of $325,000 which is equal to 12 months of Mr. Bixby’s current base salary and which will be paid immediately following the 6-month anniversary of Mr. Bixby’s separation date, (ii) a 2010 bonus payment equal to Mr. Bixby’s 2010 bonus target amount of $200,000 multiplied by the percentage multiplier applicable to the Company’s overall bonus pool based on Company fiscal performance pursuant to the Company’s 2010 bonus plan, which will be paid on or before March 15, 2011, (iii) up to 12-months of premium payments for health insurance coverage under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, and (iv) an extension of the exercisability of all vested stock options held by Mr. Bixby as of his separation date until the  third anniversary thereof.  The foregoing payments and benefits are subject to Mr. Bixby continuing with the Company through April 2, 2011, provided that in the event the Company terminates Mr. Bixby's employment prior to April 2, 2011 without cause or as a result of his death or disability, or if Mr. Bixby resigns for good reason (defined as Company’s breach of its payment obligations under the Agreement) prior to April 2, 2011, Mr. Bixby will be entitled to receive these benefits.  Except as provided above, Mr. Bixby is not entitled to receive any other payments from the Company related to the termination of his employment.

The Separation Agreement, together with the Proprietary Information, Developments and Non-Compete Agreement previously entered into by and between the Company and Mr. Bixby and which will continue in effect following his departure from the Company, also contains various restrictive covenants, including covenants relating to non-competition, non-solicitation, confidentiality, and cooperation.
