On June 23, 2023, Applied Digital disclosed in a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing “that its Audit Committee has conducted an internal investigation into a threat, but not a formal assertion, of a sexual harassment claim by Regina Ingel, its Chief Marketing Officer, based on a personal relationship between Ms. Ingel and Wes Cummins, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. Based on information obtained through the investigation, the Audit Committee determined that the relationship between the parties was consensual and the allegations of workplace harassment are unfounded. The Board has reaffirmed Mr. Cummins’ role as Chief Executive Officer of the Company and will consider any additional actions that may be appropriate with respect to this matter.”
