Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers

On September 25, 2012, iCAD, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into an employment agreement with Kenneth M. Ferry, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. The employment agreement replaces and supersedes the previous employment agreement entered into between the Company and Mr. Ferry.

Mr. Ferry’s employment agreement provides for his continued employment as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and President for an initial term through December 31, 2016, subject to automatic one-year renewals after the expiration of the initial term under certain conditions, at an annual base salary of $400,000. The agreement also provides for his eligibility to receive, during each employment year during the term of the Agreement, a target annual incentive bonus of 55% of his base salary if the Company achieves goals and objectives determined by the Board. Mr. Ferry will also be eligible to receive such other cash bonuses and such other compensation as may from time to time be awarded to him by the Board.

Mr. Ferry is also entitled to customary benefits, including participation in employee benefit plans, and reasonable travel and entertainment expenses as well as a monthly automobile allowance. The employment agreement provides that if his employment is terminated without “cause” or if he terminates his employment for “good reason”, Mr. Ferry will receive an amount equal to his base salary then in effect for one (1) year plus the pro rata portion of any incentive bonus earned in any employment year through the date of his termination. In the event that within six months of a “change in control”, either (i) Mr. Ferry is terminated by the Company without “cause” or (ii) he terminates his agreement for “good reason”, as all such terms are defined in the employment agreement, he will be entitled to receive his base salary then in effect for two (2) years from the date of termination plus any incentive bonus which otherwise would have been payable to him for any employment year in which the date of his termination occurred.

Pursuant to his agreement, Mr. Ferry was also granted an option to purchase 200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”) at an exercise price of $2.27 per share, the closing sale price of the Common Stock on September 25, 2012 (the “Grant Date”). The options vest and become exercisable in four annual installments of 50,000 shares commencing on the Grant Date and expire on the ten year anniversary of the Grant Date. The unvested portion of the award will automatically vest if Mr. Ferry’s employment is terminated without cause or for good reason within six (6) months of a change in control.

In addition to the foregoing, on September 25, 2012, the following officers of the Company were granted options to purchase shares of Common Stock as follows: Kevin Burns - 50,000 shares; Stacey Stevens - 50,000 shares; and Jonathan Go - 45,000 shares. These options become exercisable in three annual installments, commencing on the one year anniversary of the Grant Date and expire on the ten year anniversary of the Grant Date.
