EXPLANATORY NOTE

This Amendment No. 1 on Form 10‑K/A (the “Amendment”) amends the Annual Report on Form 10‑K of Peak Resorts, Inc., a Missouri corporation (“we,” “us,” “Peak Resorts,” or the “Company”), for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2019, originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on June 28, 2019 (the “Original Filing”). This Amendment is being filed to include the information required by Item 10—“Directors, Executive Officers and Corporate Governance,” Item 11—“Executive Compensation,” Item 12—“Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management and Related Stockholder Matters,” Item 13—“Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence” and Item 14—“Principal Accountant Fees and Services” of Part III of Form 10‑K. The reference on the cover page of the Original Filing to the incorporation by reference of portions of our definitive proxy statement into Part III of the Original Filing is hereby deleted. Items 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 of Part III of the Original Filing are amended and restated in their entirety as set forth in the Amendment. In addition, pursuant to Rule 13a‑14(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, we are including with the Amendment certain currently dated certifications. Because no financial statements have been included in this Amendment and this Amendment does not contain or amend any disclosure with respect to Items 307 and 308 of Regulation S-K, paragraphs 3, 4 and 5 of the certifications have been omitted. We are not including the certifications under Section 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 as no financial statements are being filed with this Amendment.

Except as described above, no other amendments are being made to the Original Filing. The Original Filing continues to speak as of the date of the Original Filing, and we have not updated the disclosures contained therein to reflect any events that occurred at a date subsequent to the filing of the Original Filing other than as expressly indicated in this Amendment. Accordingly, this Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Original Filing and our other filings made with the SEC on or subsequent to June 28, 2019.

The amount disclosed represents the grant date fair value of restricted stock units (“RSUs”) granted to the named executive officers as a portion of their total awards earned pursuant to the Peak Resorts, Inc. Annual Incentive Plan (the “Annual Incentive Plan”). RSUs were granted on June 26, 2019 based on the achievement of fiscal 2019 performance targets under the Annual Incentive Plan in amounts as follows: Mr. Boyd, 28,335; Mr. Bub, 11,220; and Mr. Deutsch, 21,333.  One-third of each RSU award vested immediately upon the grant date, and one-third will vest on each of the first and second anniversaries of the grant date, provided that the officer is employed by the Company at that time. Vested RSUs will be distributed upon vesting. The terms of the Annual Incentive Plan provide that amounts earned are payable in cash or RSUs in the discretion of the Board. As described in “Annual Incentive Plan” below, a portion of the 2019 Annual Incentive Plan awards were paid in cash and a portion were paid in RSUs in lieu of cash. The grant date fair value of the RSUs was computed in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification Topic 718, “Compensation—Stock Compensation” (“ASC 718”).  The Company uses the closing share price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant of the RSUs in determining the estimated fair value of the equity instruments. See Note 8 to our consolidated financial statements filed as part of our Original Filing.

The amount disclosed represents the portion of the 2019 Annual Incentive Plan awards paid in cash. See Note 1 to this Summary Compensation Table and “Annual Incentive Plan” below.

succession planning process. Mr. Bub’s reported compensation for fiscal 2018 includes compensation received for services provided in all capacities during the fiscal year.

For fiscal 2019, Messrs. Boyd, Bub and Deutsch were compensated pursuant to the terms of their employment agreements, as more fully described below.

No named executive officers held unvested or unearned equity awards as of April 30, 2019. The 7,216 RSUs granted to Mr. Bub on October 25, 2016 pursuant to the Incentive Plan vested in full one year from the grant date and represent the right to receive (i) the number of shares of common stock underlying the RSUs or (ii) as may be elected by the compensation committee, cash equal to the closing sale price per share of common stock on the trading day immediately prior to the distribution date times the number of shares underlying the RSUs. The RSUs will be distributed to Mr. Bub on the date that is six months after the day his employment terminates for any reason. To the extent the Company pays cash dividends on shares of its outstanding common stock, Mr. Bub is entitled to receive additional RSUs in an amount equal to the number of shares of common stock with a value equal to the value of the dividend that would have been paid to the holder if each RSU was a share of common stock, based on the closing price of the common stock on the dividend payment date. Including dividend credits accrued on RSUs held by Mr. Bub, Mr. Bub held a total of 8,158 RSUs as of April 30, 2019, all of which were vested as of April 30, 2019 and will be distributed as noted above.

Employment Agreements

Messrs. Boyd and Deutsch

Effective June 1, 2014, we entered into an Executive Employment Agreement (each, an “Executive Employment Agreement”) with each of Messrs. Boyd and Deutsch (each, an “Executive”). Pursuant to their respective Executive Employment Agreements, Messrs. Boyd and Deutsch are paid the following base salaries, not to be lowered during the term of the Executive Employment Agreements and to be reviewed annually by the Board of Directors: Mr. Boyd, $442,000; and Mr. Deutsch, $416,000.

Each Executive Employment Agreement provides that the Executive shall be eligible to participate in any incentive, equity or other compensation plans that the Company may implement relative to executive officers and to receive cash, equity or other awards as the Board of Directors deems appropriate, in its discretion. Furthermore, each Executive shall be eligible to participate in other benefit plans and receive perks on the same terms as other senior executives of the Company. The Company will provide each Executive with a travel and entertainment budget that is reasonable in light of his position and responsibilities and reimburse the Executive for such expenses upon receipt of appropriate documentation.

The term of each Executive Employment Agreement is three years and shall be automatically renewed for successive one-year periods unless, no later than 60 days before the expiration of the term, either party gives the other written notice of non-renewal. Each of Messrs. Boyd’s and Deutsch’s Executive Employment Agreement automatically renewed on June 1, 2019.

Each Executive Employment Agreement contains non-competition and non-solicitation provisions that endure for a period of two years following the Executive’s termination of employment with the Company. The Company will indemnify the Executive in connection with legal proceedings against the Executive in his capacity as a director, officer or employee of the Company to the fullest extent permitted by the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation and Amended and Restated By-laws, each as amended.

Each of the Executive Employment Agreements governing the compensation of Messrs. Boyd and Deutsch contains provisions providing for the payments due to the Executives upon termination of employment under certain circumstances.

If the Company terminates Executive’s employment for “cause” or Executive terminates his employment without “good reason” (each as defined in the Executive Employment Agreements), Executive is entitled to receive only Executive’s then-current base salary through the date of such termination and will not be entitled to receive any bonus. If the

7

Table of Contents

Company terminates Executive for cause, he must forfeit any unvested shares or portion of any equity grant not yet vested made under any equity compensation plan of the Company ("Unvested Equity Grants").

If the Company terminates Executive’s employment without cause, or Executive terminates his employment for good reason, Executive shall be entitled to receive (i) his then-current base salary through the effective date of such termination; (ii) if entitled to receive a bonus, a pro-rated bonus for the portion of the Company’s fiscal year through the effective date of such termination, which prorated bonus shall, if applicable, be based on applying the level of achievement of the performance to Executive’s target bonus for the year of such termination, payable in a lump sum at the same time as bonuses are paid to the Company’s senior executives generally (the "Pro-Rated Bonus"); (iii) 24 months of Executive’s then-current base salary, payable in a lump sum; and (iv) one year’s COBRA premiums for the continuation of health and dental coverage payable in lump sum. In addition, all Unvested Equity Grants, if any, shall automatically become fully vested.

If the Company terminates the Executive Employment Agreement as a result of Executive’s total and permanent disability, Executive is entitled to receive (i) Executive’s then-current base salary through the date of such termination; (ii) if entitled to receive a bonus, a Pro-Rated Bonus; and (iii) Executive’s then-current base salary, net of short-term disability payments remitted to Executive by the Company pursuant to the Company’s short-term disability plan, through the earlier of (A) the scheduled expiration date of the Executive Employment Agreement (but in no event less than 12 months from the date of disability) or (B) the date on which Executive’s long-term disability insurance payments commence. In addition, all Unvested Equity Grants, if any, shall automatically become fully vested upon termination.

An Executive Employment Agreement shall automatically terminate upon the death of Executive, in which case his estate is entitled to receive (i) Executive’s then-current base salary through such date of termination; and (ii) if Executive is entitled to receive a bonus, a Pro-Rated Bonus. In addition, all Unvested Equity Grants, if any, shall automatically become fully vested upon termination.

In the event of a termination of employment by the Company without cause or by the Executive for good reason or notice by the Company of non-renewal of the Executive Employment Agreement, all within 365 days of a consummation of a “change in control” of the Company and upon execution of a “mutual release” (as each term is defined in the Executive Employment Agreements), the Executive shall be entitled to receive: (i) his then-current base salary through the effective date of such termination or non-renewal; (ii) if entitled to receive a bonus, a Pro-Rated Bonus; (iii) a lump sum payment equal to 24 months of the Executive’s then-current base salary plus an amount equal to the cash bonus paid to the Executive in the prior calendar year, if any, payable no later than the date that is two and a half months following the calendar year in which such termination or non-renewal occurs; (iv) full vesting of Unvested Equity Grants; and (v) in a lump sum, one year’s COBRA premiums for continuation of health and dental coverage in existence at the time of such termination.

The Executives are entitled to gross-up payments in respect of certain excise taxes imposed on “excess parachute payments” under Sections 280G and 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, though we do not anticipate needing to make any such gross-up payments in connection with the Merger, as defined in Item 12, “Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management and Related Stockholder Matters.”

Mr. Bub

Effective as of October 3, 2017, we entered into an Executive Employment Agreement with Mr. Bub (the “Bub Agreement”) pursuant to which Mr. Bub is compensated for his services as the Company’s Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Secretary.  Pursuant to these terms, Mr. Bub receives an annual base salary of no less than $250,000, to be reviewed annually by the compensation committee, and is eligible to receive a bonus as may be determined by the compensation committee. Further, Mr. Bub is eligible to participate in any incentive, equity or other compensation plans that the Company may implement relative to executive officers and to receive cash, equity or other awards as the compensation committee deems appropriate, in its discretion. The Company will reimburse Mr. Bub for certain expenses in connection with his services and provide him with a monthly automobile allowance.

Table of Contents

Unless terminated earlier, the Bub Agreement shall continue through October 2, 2020 and automatically renew for successive one-year periods unless, no later than 60 days before the expiration of the then current term, either Mr. Bub or the Company gives the other written notice of non-renewal.

If the Company terminates Mr. Bub’s employment for “cause,” or Mr. Bub terminates his employment without “good reason” (in each case, as defined in the Bub Agreement), he is entitled to receive his then current base salary through the date of termination and will not be entitled to receive any bonus.  If the Company terminates Mr. Bub for cause, he must also forfeit any Unvested Equity Grants.

If the Company terminates Mr. Bub’s employment without cause, or Mr. Bub terminates his employment for good reason, Mr. Bub is entitled to receive: (i) his then current base salary through the effective date of such termination; (ii) if entitled to a bonus, a Pro-Rated Bonus; (iii) 24 months of his then current base salary payable in a lump sum; and (iv) one year’s COBRA premiums for the continuation of health and dental coverage payable in lump sum.  In addition, all Unvested Equity Grants shall automatically become fully vested.

If the Company terminates the Bub Agreement as a result of Mr. Bub’s total and permanent disability, Mr. Bub is entitled to receive: (i) his then current base salary through the date of termination; (ii) if entitled to receive a bonus, a Pro-Rated Bonus; and (iii) his then current base salary, net of short term disability payments from the Company, through the earlier of (A) the scheduled expiration date of the Bub Agreement (but in no event less than 12 months from the date of disability) or (B) the date on which Mr. Bub’s long-term disability insurance payments commence.  In addition, all Unvested Equity Grants shall automatically become fully vested.

The Bub Agreement shall automatically terminate upon Mr. Bub’s death, in which case his estate is entitled to receive: (i) his then-current Base Salary through the date of termination; and (ii) if entitled to receive a bonus, a Pro-Rated Bonus. In addition, all Unvested Equity Grants shall automatically become fully vested.

In the event Mr. Bub’s employment is terminated by the Company without “cause” or by Mr. Bub for “good reason” or notice by the Company of non-renewal of the Bub Agreement, in each case, within 365 days after a “change in control” of the Company and upon execution of a “mutual release” (as each term is defined in the Bub Agreement), Mr. Bub is entitled to receive: (i) his then current base salary through the date of such termination or non-renewal; (ii) if entitled to receive a bonus, a Pro-Rated Bonus; (iii) a lump sum payment equal to 24 months of Mr. Bub’s then current base salary plus an amount equal to the cash bonus paid to Mr. Bub in the prior calendar year, if any, payable no later than the date that is two and a half months following the calendar year in which such termination or non-renewal occurs; (iv) to the extent not already vested, full vesting of all Unvested Equity Grants, if any; and (v) in a lump sum, one year’s COBRA premiums for continuation of health and dental coverage in existence at the time of such termination.

The Bub Agreement subjects Mr. Bub to specified non-competition and non-solicitation obligations for a period of two years following the termination of his employment for any reason.

Pursuant to the terms of the Bub Agreement, the Company shall also indemnify and hold harmless Mr. Bub in connection with legal proceedings as a result of his service as an officer and employee of the Company to the fullest extent permitted under the Company’s governing documents.

Incentive Plan

We have reserved and registered a total of 559,296 shares of our common stock for issuance pursuant to the Incentive Plan. As of the date of this Amendment, a total of 25,868 shares remain available for issuance under the Incentive Plan, subject to adjustments.  We may grant Incentive Plan awards to our officers, including our named executive officers, employees, directors, independent contractors and consultants. Participants will be eligible to receive options, stock appreciation rights (“SARs”), restricted stock, RSUs, other stock-based awards, stock bonuses and cash awards, provided that we may grant incentive stock options only to employees.

The Incentive Plan is generally administered by the compensation committee of our Board of Directors. Subject to the provisions of the Incentive Plan, the compensation committee has the discretion to determine the persons to whom and

9

Table of Contents

the times at which awards are granted, the sizes of such awards and all of their terms and conditions. The compensation committee has the authority to construe and interpret the terms of the Incentive Plan and awards granted under it.

All awards will be evidenced by a written agreement between us and the holder of the award and may include any of the following:

·

Options.  We may grant nonstatutory stock options or incentive stock options, each of which gives its holder the right, during a specified term (not exceeding 10 years) and subject to any specified vesting or other conditions, to purchase a number of shares of our common stock at an exercise price equal to the fair market value of our common stock on the date of grant, or in the case of incentive stock options, an exercise price no less than 110% of the fair market value of our common stock on the date of grant.

·

SARs.  A SAR gives its holder the right, during a specified term (not exceeding 10 years) and subject to any specified vesting or other conditions, to receive the appreciation in the fair market value of our common stock between the date of grant of the award and the date of its exercise. We may pay the appreciation in shares of our common stock or in cash, or a combination of common stock or cash.

·

Restricted stock.  The compensation committee may grant restricted stock awards either as a bonus or as a purchase right at such price as it determines. Shares of restricted stock remain subject to forfeiture until vested, based on such terms and conditions as the compensation committee specifies. Holders of restricted stock will have the right to vote the shares and to receive any dividends paid, except that the dividends may be subject to the same vesting conditions as the related shares.

·

RSUs.  RSUs represent rights to receive shares of our common stock (or their value in cash) at a future date without payment of a purchase price, subject to vesting or other conditions specified by the compensation committee. Holders of RSUs have no voting rights or rights to receive cash dividends unless and until shares of common stock are issued in settlement of such awards. However, the compensation committee may grant RSUs that entitle their holders to dividend equivalent rights.

·

Other stock-based awards, cash-based awards and stock bonuses.  The compensation committee may grant other stock-based awards, stock bonuses or other cash-based awards that are subject to vesting or other conditions specified by the compensation committee. Settlement of other stock-based awards may be in cash or shares of our common stock, as determined by the compensation committee. The compensation committee may grant dividend equivalent rights with respect to other stock-based awards.

Unless otherwise set forth in an applicable award agreement, in the event a change in control as described in the Incentive Plan occurs and a participant’s employment is terminated within 12 months following the change in control, then (i) any unvested or unexercisable portion of any award carrying a right to exercise shall become fully vested and exercisable; and (ii) the restrictions, deferral limitations, payment conditions and forfeiture conditions applicable to an award shall lapse, such awards shall be deemed fully vested, and any performance conditions imposed with respect to such awards shall be deemed to be fully achieved.

The Incentive Plan will continue in effect until it is terminated by the Board of Directors, provided, however, that all awards will be granted, if at all, within 10 years of its effective date. The Board of Directors may amend, alter or terminate the Incentive Plan, provided that without stockholder approval, the Incentive Plan cannot be amended to effect any other change that would require stockholder approval under any applicable law or listing rule.

Annual Incentive Plan

The Company maintains the Annual Incentive Plan pursuant to which leadership employees, including the Company’s named executive officers, are eligible to receive annual awards upon the satisfaction of certain performance goals.

10

Table of Contents

Target bonuses (each, a “Target Bonus”) for employees are based on a percentage of base salary, which for the Company’s named executive officers are as follows: (i) 50% of base salary for Mr. Boyd; (ii) 40% of base salary for Mr. Deutsch; and (iii) 35% of base salary for Mr. Bub. The amount of a Target Bonus eligible for payment (the “Eligible Bonus”) will depend on the Company’s achievement of its Reported EBITDA goals, as follows, with amounts pro-rated if results fall between the threshold, target and maximum payout levels (for purposes of the Annual Incentive Plan, Reported EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, gain on sale leaseback, investment income, other income or expense and other non-recurring items, exclusive of the cost under the Annual Incentive Plan):

The amount of the Eligible Bonus ultimately paid will depend on the named executive officer’s individual performance evaluation, which will be conducted and determined by the independent members of the Board of Directors for each named executive officer, and will be calculated as follows:

Amounts earned will be paid following completion of the audited financial results for the prior fiscal year. Except in the case of death or long-term disability, or as may otherwise be provided, employees whose employment ends prior to the bonus payment date will not be eligible to receive a bonus. In the sole discretion of the Board, up to 50% of any awards earned may be paid in RSUs of the Company under the Incentive Plan.

For fiscal 2019, the Company achieved more than 120% of the Reported EBITDA Goal, resulting in an Eligible Bonus in an amount equal to 200% of the Target Bonus for each named executive officer.  In addition, all individual executives received a “meeting expectations” performance review for fiscal 2019.  The Board authorized payment of portions of the aggregate amounts earned under the Annual Incentive Plan in RSUs, the value of which was determined using the closing price of the Company’s common stock on June 26, 2019, the date of grant for the Annual Incentive Plan awards earned. Awards were paid as follows:

The RSUs give the recipient the right to receive (i) the number of shares of common stock underlying the RSUs or (ii) as may be elected by the compensation committee, cash equal to the closing sale price per share of common stock on the trading day immediately prior to the distribution date times the number of shares underlying the RSUs. One-third of the RSU award vested immediately on the grant date, and one-third will vest on each of the first and second anniversaries of the grant date, provided that the recipient is employed by the Company at that time. Vested RSUs will be distributed

immediately upon vesting. To the extent the Company pays cash dividends on shares of its outstanding common stock, a holder of RSUs receives additional RSUs in an amount equal to the number of shares of common stock with a value equal to the value of the dividend that would have been paid to the holder if each RSU was a share of common stock, based on the closing price of the common stock on the dividend payment date.  To the extent the Company pays stock dividends, a holder of RSUs receives an amount of additional RSUs equal to the number of shares that would have been paid if each RSU was a share of common stock.

The RSUs are subject to the terms and conditions of the Incentive Plan and RSU agreement governing each of the awards, as well as applicable terms of each named executive officer’s employment agreement. If the named executive officer remains continuously employed from the date of the RSU award until the occurrence of a change in control, unvested RSUs shall immediately become fully vested prior to the consummation of such change in control.

DIRECTOR COMPENSATION

We do not provide separate compensation to any director who is also an employee of the Company, including Messrs. Boyd, Mueller and Deutsch. Currently, our non-employee directors receive an annual retainer of $75,000, half of which is payable in cash and half of which is payable in RSUs pursuant to the Incentive Plan. The chair of the audit committee receives an additional annual cash retainer fee of $10,000, and the chairs of each of the compensation and nominating and corporate governance committees receive an additional annual cash retainer fee of $5,000. We reimburse our directors for reasonable travel expenses incurred in attending the Board and committee meetings.

RSUs granted to the non-employee directors are granted the day following the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders at which directors are elected and are valued based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant.  The RSUs represent the right to receive (i) the number of shares of common stock underlying the RSUs or (ii) as may be elected by the compensation committee, cash equal to the closing sale price per share of common stock on the trading day immediately prior to the distribution date times the number of shares underlying the RSUs. The RSUs will vest in full one year from the date of grant provided that the director is serving on the Board of Directors at that time. To the extent the Company pays cash dividends on shares of its outstanding common stock, a holder of RSUs receives additional RSUs in an amount equal to the number of shares of common stock with a value equal to the value of the dividend that would have been paid to the holder if each RSU was a share of common stock, based on the closing price of the common stock on the dividend payment date.  Vested RSUs will be distributed to the director on the date that is six months after the day the director’s service on the Board of Directors terminates for any reason.

The compensation committee of the Board of Directors annually reviews our non-employee director compensation program, and in connection with its most recent annual review, concluded that the compensation for non-employee directors is adequate.

The table below provides information concerning the compensation of our non-employee directors for fiscal 2019:

Messrs. Hansen, Kraus, O’Connor, and Braswell and Summer Road LLC, as Mr. Held’s employer, were each granted 7,239 RSUs on October 10, 2018 in connection with their election to the Board of Directors at the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. These RSUs vest in full one year from the date of grant and will be distributed to the holder on the date that is six months after the day the holder’s service on the Board of Directors terminates for any reason.  The amounts disclosed in this column represent the full grant date fair value of the RSUs granted during fiscal 2019, computed in accordance with ASC 718.  The Company uses the closing share price of the common stock on the date of grant in determining the estimated fair value of the equity instruments.  See Note 8 to our consolidated financial statements filed as part of our Original Filing. The aggregate number of vested and unvested RSUs held by each of the non-employee directors at April 30, 2019, included the following: (i) 35,243 vested RSUs and 7,451 unvested RSUs held by each of Messrs. Hansen, Kraus and O’Connor; (ii) 22,192 vested RSUs and 7,451 unvested RSUs held by Mr. Braswell; and (iii) 19,237 vested RSUs and 7,451 unvested RSUs held by Summer Road LLC as Mr. Held’s employer.  The RSU amounts include RSUs awarded pursuant to the Incentive Plan and additional RSUs credited to the holders in connection with cash dividends paid by the Company. Messrs. Boyd, Deutsch and Mueller did not hold any outstanding equity awards as of April 30, 2019.

The amounts reported represent the dollar value of dividends paid during fiscal 2019 on RSUs held by each non-employee director and Summer Road LLC at the time of each dividend payment.

 

Item 12. Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management and Related Stockholder Matters.

The following table sets forth certain information with respect to the beneficial ownership of our common stock and Series A Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Stock), in each case, as of August 19, 2019, by (i) each of our named executive officers and directors; (ii) all executive officers and directors as a group; and (iii) each person known by us to beneficially own more than 5% of our common stock and Series A Preferred Stock. All such information provided by the shareholders who are not executive officers or directors reflects their beneficial ownership as of the dates specified in the relevant footnotes to the table.

Applicable percentage ownership for our common stock in the following table is based on 15,227,562 shares of common stock outstanding as of August 19, 2019 and the assumed conversion of all 40,000 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock outstanding as of August 19, 2019 into 6,359,300 shares of common stock, for an aggregate of 21,586,862 shares of common stock deemed outstanding for voting purposes (excluding shares of common stock subject to vested but unsettled RSUs). Each share of Series A Preferred Stock is convertible, at the option of the holder and subject to the conditions set forth in the certificate of designation for the Series A Preferred Stock, into a number of shares of common stock equal to the number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be converted, multiplied by the liquidation value of $1,000, divided by the conversion price. The initial conversion price per share is $6.29, subject to adjustment pursuant to the terms of the certificate of designation for the Series A Preferred Stock. Each holder of Series A Preferred Stock is entitled to vote together with holders of outstanding shares of common stock, as a single class on an as-converted basis, with respect to any and all matters presented to the shareholders of the Company.

Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the SEC. Shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of outstanding warrants and shares of common stock issuable pursuant to RSUs that have vested or will vest within 60 days of August 19, 2019 are deemed to be outstanding for calculating the number and percentage of outstanding shares of the person holding such securities, but are not deemed to be outstanding for purposes of calculating the percentage ownership of any other person. Applicable percentage ownership for shares of the Series A Preferred Stock is based on 40,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock outstanding as of August 19, 2019. Beneficial ownership or voting power representing less than 1.00% is denoted with an asterisk (*).

As previously disclosed by the Company, on July 20, 2019, Peak Resorts entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Vail Holdings, Inc., a Colorado corporation (“Parent”), VRAD Holdings, Inc., a Missouri corporation and direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), and, solely for the purposes stated in Section 9.14 of the Merger Agreement, Vail Resorts, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Vail Resorts”), relating to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Parent. The Merger Agreement provides that, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth therein, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company (the “Merger”) with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation in the Merger as a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent and an indirect,

13

Table of Contents

wholly-owned subsidiary of Vail Resorts. Upon completion of the Merger, the Company will cease to be a publicly traded company and: (i) each share of the Company’s common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Merger (other than Excluded Shares, as the term is defined in the Merger Agreement) will cease to be outstanding and will be converted into the right to receive $11.00 in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes; and (ii) each share of Series A Preferred Stock that is outstanding immediately prior to the Merger, other than Excluded Shares, will be converted into the right to receive an amount equal to the sum of: (A) $1,748.81, the product of  $11.00 multiplied by the amount equal to the quotient of $1,000 divided by $6.29; plus (B) the aggregate amount of all accrued and unpaid dividends on the applicable issuance of Series A Preferred Stock as of the Merger, in cash without interest.

The closing of the Merger is subject to, among other conditions, adoption of the Merger Agreement by the affirmative vote of the holders of at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares of common stock and Series A Preferred Stock entitled to vote at a special meeting of shareholders (the “Special Meeting”) as of the August 19, 2019 record date, voting together as a single class on an as-converted basis and the expiration or termination of any applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended. On August 20, 2019, the Company filed a definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A relating to the Special Meeting, which the Company intends to hold on September 20, 2019.

On July 20, 2019, in connection with the execution of the Merger Agreement, certain directors and executive officers and/or their affiliates entered into voting and support agreements with Parent pursuant to which they have agreed to, among other things, and subject to certain conditions, vote in favor of the proposal to the adopt the Merger Agreement and approve the Merger and the other transactions contemplated thereby. The shares covered by the voting and support agreements constituted approximately 45.00% of the total shares entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the Special Meeting, as of the date of the Merger Agreement.

The information provided in the table is based on our records, information publicly filed with the SEC and other information provided to us as of the date of this proxy statement, except where otherwise noted. Unless otherwise noted,

Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence.

Review of Related Party Transactions

As provided by the audit committee’s charter, the audit committee must review and approve all transactions between the Company and any related person that are required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404 of Regulation S-K. "Related person" and "transaction" shall have the meanings given to such terms in Item 404 of Regulation S-K, as amended from time to time. In determining whether to approve or ratify a particular transaction, the audit committee will take into account any factors it deems relevant.

Certain Relationships and Related Transactions

Mr. Braswell, a director of the Company, is a partner at Armstrong Teasdale LLP, which is a law firm that provided legal services to the Company in fiscal years 2019 and 2018, continues to provide legal services to the Company during the current fiscal year and is expected to continue to provide legal services to the Company in the future. During fiscal years 2019 and 2018, the Company incurred expenses of approximately $565,000 and $144,000, respectively, related to work performed by Armstrong Teasdale LLP for legal services, which amount in each case totaled less than 1.0% of Armstrong Teasdale LLP’s consolidated gross revenues for the relevant fiscal year and is considered immaterial by Armstrong Teasdale LLP and the Company. None of Mr. Braswell’s compensation is directly attributable to these fees, he has no other direct or indirect material interest in these fees, and he provides no legal services to the Company on behalf of Armstrong Teasdale LLP.

In December 2017, the Company paid approximately $471,000 for land and improvements located adjacent to one of its resorts to a trust for which Mr. Boyd, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, serves as trustee. The trust has a total of four beneficiaries (including Mr. Boyd), each of whom has a 25% direct interest in the trust.

On  August 22, 2016, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with Cap 1 in connection with the sale and issuance (the “Private Placement”) of $20 million in Series A Preferred Stock and three warrants (the “2016 Warrants”) to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock that are exercisable at any time for a period of 12 years from the date of issuance, as follows: (i) 1,538,462 shares of common stock at $6.50 per share; (ii) 625,000 shares of common stock at $8.00 per share; and (iii) 555,556 shares of common stock at $9.00 per share. On November 2, 2016, the Company completed the sale and issuance of the 20,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock and the 2016 Warrants to Cap 1 in the Private Placement. The Securities Purchase Agreement granted to the Company the right to require Cap 1 to purchase an additional 20,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock for $1,000 per share, along with additional warrants, all on the same terms as the Private Placement, subject to certain conditions (the “Cap 1 Option”). In connection with the Private Placement, the Company, Cap 1 and certain members of the Company’s management (the “Management Stockholders”) entered into a Stockholders’ Agreement granting Cap 1 the right to nominate a director to sit on the Company’s board of directors, preemptive rights with respect to certain future issuances of securities, and consent rights regarding certain acquisitions and dispositions, in each case subject to stock ownership requirements and exceptions.

On November 21, 2018, we completed our acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of Snow Time, Inc. for total consideration of $71.6 million, payable in a combination of cash and shares of common stock. We financed $50.0 million of the Snow Time, Inc. cash consideration with the $50.0 million senior secured term loan (the “Term Loan”) from Cap 1 pursuant to the terms of the Credit Agreement entered into with Cap 1 on November 21, 2018 and the remaining cash consideration from proceeds received upon our exercise of the Cap 1 Option pursuant to which we issued to Cap 1 an additional $20 million in Series A Preferred Stock and warrants to purchase up to 2,719,018 shares of common stock on terms identical to the 2016 Warrants (the “2018 Option Warrants”). As consideration for the Term Loan and in lieu of fees, we issued Cap 1 a warrant to purchase 1,750,000 shares of common stock at $10.00 per share, which was exercisable immediately and expires ten years from the date of issuance (the “Financing Warrant,” and together with the 2016 Warrants and 2018 Option Warrants, the “Warrants”).

The Term Loan has an initial term of two years and bears interest at 6.95%, payable quarterly, subject to a 2.0% increase upon an event of default. The Term Loan is secured by all real property on which the Snow Time, Inc. resorts are located and improvements thereon.  Amounts due under the Term Loan may be prepaid without penalty.

The Term Loan matures on November 30, 2020 and may be extended for an additional one-year period at the Company’s option, so long as no event of default has occurred. If extended, the Company has agreed to issue Cap 1 a warrant to purchase 666,667 shares of common stock, exercisable immediately from the issuance date and for up to ten years from the date of issuance, at $7.50 per share (the “Extension Warrant”). The Extension Warrant was not issued upon closing the Term Loan and will only be issued if the Company exercises the one-year Term Loan extension right.

On November 21, 2018, in connection with the closing of the Term Loan and the Snow Time, Inc. acquisition, the Company, Cap 1 and the Management Stockholders entered into the Amended and Restated Stockholders’ Agreement

18

Table of Contents

which added the new shares of Series A Preferred Stock, 2018 Option Warrants, Financing Warrant and Extension Warrant, and the shares of common stock underlying such securities, to the scope of the Stockholders’ Agreement entered into by the parties in connection with the 2016 Private Placement. The Stockholders’ Agreement otherwise remains unchanged and  (i) provides Cap 1 a right to nominate a director to sit on the Company’s Board of Directors so long as Cap 1 beneficially owns, on a fully diluted, as-converted basis, at least 20% of the outstanding equity securities of the Company; (ii) restricts transfers of the Company’s securities by Cap 1 and the Management Stockholders; (iii) provides Cap 1 with a right of first offer to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock from the Management Stockholders; (iv) grants Cap 1 preemptive rights with respect to future issuances of securities; and (v) requires Cap 1’s approval, so long as it meets certain ownership requirements, in order for the Company to (a) materially change the nature of its business or (b) acquire or dispose of any resorts, assets or properties for aggregate consideration equal to or greater than 30% of the enterprise value of the Company and its subsidiaries.

The Company entered into a Registration Rights Agreement with Cap 1, dated November 21, 2018, granting certain registration rights with respect to the shares of common stock underlying the 2018 Series A Preferred Stock, 2018 Option Warrants and Financing Warrant. The terms and registration rights applicable to the Extension Warrant, if issued, are expected to be substantially the same as those applicable to the Financing Warrant. Identical registration rights were granted to Cap 1 with respect to the 2016 Series A Preferred Stock and 2016 Warrants issued to Cap 1 in November 2016 in connection with the Private Placement.

Also on November 21, 2018, the Company, Cap 1 and the Management Stockholders entered into the Amended and Restated Voting Agreement, which adds the shares of Series A Preferred Stock granted in 2018, 2018 Option Warrants, Financing Warrant and Extension Warrant, and the shares of common stock underlying such securities, to the scope of the Voting Agreement entered into by the parties in connection with the 2016 Private Placement. Pursuant to the terms of the Amended and Restated Voting Agreement, Cap 1 has agreed that for up to three years after the issuance date or until a change of control, it will vote any shares of common stock issued upon exercise of any of the Warrants in favor of the Board of Directors’ recommendations as to the election, removal or replacement of directors and all other proposals submitted to the vote of stockholders, except in the case of non-routine matters such as tender offers, mergers, acquisitions and similar transactions.

Because Cap 1 is entitled to vote its Series A Preferred Stock on an as-converted basis, Cap 1 and its affiliates own approximately 38.8% of the Company’s outstanding voting power as of August 19, 2019. Assuming the conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock and exercise of all Warrants held by Cap 1, Cap 1 would own approximately 54.1% of the outstanding shares of our common stock and voting power as of August 19, 2019.

The key terms of the Series A Preferred Stock are as follows:

·

$1,000 per share liquidation value;

·

Convertible upon a change of control, or after nine months, into a number of shares of common stock equal to the number of shares to be converted times the liquidation value, divided by the conversion price of $6.29;

·

Cumulative dividend of 8.0% per annum on the liquidation value;

·

Redeemable by the Company after three years at 125% of the liquidation value, plus accrued and unpaid dividends if the common stock trades at more than 130% of the conversion price for a 30‑day period;

·

Senior as to dividends, liquidation and redemption, with limitations on the Company’s ability to issue convertible debt and senior securities; and

·

Voting rights on an as-converted basis with holders of outstanding shares of common stock, voting together as a single class, with respect to any and all matters presented to the stockholders of the Company.

Table of Contents

Dividends began accruing on August 2, 2017 with respect to the outstanding Series A Preferred Stock issued in connection with the 2016 Private Placement and on August 21, 2019 with respect to the outstanding Series A Preferred Stock issued in connection with the exercise of the Cap 1 Option in 2018, in each case at the rate of 8.0% per annum on the liquidation value.  Dividend payments on the Series A Preferred Stock will total $3.2 million annually, or $800,000 quarterly.

The largest amount of principal outstanding under the Term Loan was $50.0 million during the year ended April 30, 2019, and no payments on principal were made during fiscal 2019. At August 19, 2019, $50.0 million of principal remained outstanding under the Term Loan. During the year ended April 30, 2019, the Company paid Cap 1 approximately $1.27 million of interest related to the Term Loan.

In November 2016, the Board of Directors appointed Mr. Held to serve as a director of the Company upon the nomination of Cap 1 pursuant to the terms of the Stockholders’ Agreement and the recommendation of the nominating and corporate governance committee. Mr. Held has been reelected as a director by the Company’s shareholders at the Company’s annual meetings of shareholders since his initial appointment. Mr. Held serves as Executive Vice President and Portfolio Manager of Summer Road LLC, which serves as a family office and provides investment management services to Cap 1. Mr. Held has no equity interest in, or other relationship with, Cap 1 or Summer Road LLC and is not compensated by Cap 1 or Summer Road LLC for his services as a director of the Company.

Director Independence

Based on the independence standards as defined by the Nasdaq marketplace rules, the Board of Directors has determined in its business judgment that Messrs. Hansen, Kraus, O’Connor, Braswell and Held are independent as such term is defined in the Nasdaq listing standards. In addition, each of the members of the audit committee, compensation committee and nominating and corporate governance committee meets the independence standards set forth in the SEC rules and the Nasdaq listing standards. In making these determinations, the Board of Directors has reviewed all transactions and relationships between each director (or any member of his or her immediate family) and the Company, including transactions and relationships described in the directors’ responses to questions regarding employment, business, family, and other relationships with the Company and its management, as well as those disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K as described in “Certain Relationships and Related Transactions” in this Item 13. As a result of this review, the Board of Directors concluded, as to each independent director, that no relationship exists which, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director.
