and principal accounting officer since March 15, 2014. Mr.
Harrington will continue to serve as the Chief Executive Officer
of the Company.

Ms. Krandel, 51, previously served as a member of the Companys

Portfolio Manager at Alpine Woods where she managed portions of
two long/short equity hedge funds. Prior to that, she was a
Portfolio Manager from 2001 to 2009 at First New York Securities,
LLC, where her experience included founding and co-managing a
domestic long/short small-cap hedge fund. Ms. Krandel has been
engaged in public equity research and investing since 1992,
starting with Fred Alger Management, followed by positions at
Delaware Management and Kern Capital Management. Ms. Krandel
received her B.S. from the Wharton School of Business at the
University of Pennsylvania and her M.B.A. from the University of
Chicago.

Other than the Employment Agreement, there are no arrangements or
understandings between Ms. Krandel and any other persons to which
she was selected to serve as the Companys Chief Financial
Officer. In addition, there are no transactions between the
Company and Ms. Krandel or her immediate family members requiring
disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K promulgated under

Employment Agreement

The Employment Agreement provides for an initial term of one year
and automatically renews for successive one-year terms, unless
earlier terminated by either party upon prior written notice. to
the Employment Agreement, Ms. Krandel is entitled to the
following compensation and benefits:

A base salary at an annual rate of $200,000, which will be
reviewed at least annually, and may be increased at the sole
discretion of the Board.
An annual incentive bonus of up to $50,000 for the 2017
calendar year, $25,000 of which is guaranteed and the
remainder of which is subject to the discretion of the Board.
Annual incentive bonuses awarded for subsequent years shall
be determined by the Board, based on criteria to be
established jointly by the Chief Executive Officer and Ms.
Krandel.
A stock option to purchase 5,000,000 shares of common stock
as described below.
Four weeks paid vacation annually and reimbursement for
eligible expenses.
Eligibility to participate in the Companys benefit plans that
are generally provided for all employees.

to its terms and conditions, the Employment Agreement may be
terminated by the Company (i) upon Ms. Krandels death or
permanent disability, (ii) for Cause (as defined in the
Employment Agreement) or (iii) without Cause upon prior written
notice to Ms. Krandel. The Employment Agreement may be terminated
by Ms. Krandel (i) for Good Reason (as defined in the Employment
Agreement) or (ii) other than for Good Reason, upon prior written
notice to the Company.

If the Company terminates Ms. Krandel for any reason she is
entitled to her earned but unpaid base salary through the date of
termination, any amounts to which she is entitled under the
Companys benefit plans and any unreimbursed reasonable business
expenses (the Termination Benefits).
Additionally, if more than six months after the effective date of
the Employment Agreement, the Company terminates Ms. Krandel
without Cause or Ms. Krandel terminates her employment for Good
Reason or if the termination occurs prior to or during the one
year period following a change in control, she is entitled to
three months of her then-current base salary in addition to the
Termination Benefits described above, subject to a general
release of claims in favor of the Company and compliance with
certain other restrictive covenants in the Employment Agreement.

In connection with Ms. Krandels appointment as Chief Financial
Officer, the Board granted Ms. Krandel a stock option to purchase
5,000,000 shares of the Companys common stock at an exercise
price equal to $0.13 per share, which was the fair market value
of a share of the Companys common stock on the date of grant. The
stock option is subject to the terms and conditions of a stock
option agreement, which provides that the stock option will vest
in four separate tranches of 25% each, with the first tranche
vesting on the earlier of the six month anniversary of the date
of grant or termination of Ms. Krandels employment without Cause
and the remaining three tranches vesting on one year intervals
thereafter; provided, however, that upon the effective date of a
change in control (as defined in the Snap Interactive, Inc. 2016
Long-Term Incentive Plan), 50% of the then-unvested shares
immediately will vest on the date of the change in control and
the remaining 50% of the then-unvested shares will vest on the
earlier of (i) the original date such shares would have vested or
(ii) the first anniversary of the date of the change in control,
in each case subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement
governing the stock option award.

confidentiality covenant, a one year non-compete covenant, a two
