Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On May 14, 2024, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Intensity Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) increased the size of the Board from four directors to five and appointed Thomas I. H. Dubin to the Board as a Class I director. Mr. Dubin will serve for a term to continue until the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders. The Board also appointed Mr. Dubin to serve on the Audit Committee of the Board. As previously disclosed, on April 18, 2024, the Company was notified by The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC that, as a result of the resignation of Daniel Donovan from the Audit Committee on April 12, 2024, the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq’s audit committee composition requirements as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(c)(2)(A). By appointing Mr. Dubin as a third member of the Audit Committee, the Company expects to regain compliance with this rule.

The Board has affirmatively determined that Mr. Dubin is an independent director pursuant to the Nasdaq Stock Market listing rules. There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Dubin and any other person pursuant to which Mr. Dubin was appointed as a director. There are no transactions between Mr. Dubin and the Company that would be reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K. Mr. Dubin has not previously held any positions with the Company and has no family relations with any directors or executive officers of the Company.

Mr. Dubin will be entitled to the standard compensation paid by the Company to all of its non-employee directors under the Company’s Non-Employee Director Compensation Policy (pro-rated as applicable to reflect the actual time Mr. Dubin will serve on the Board for the year). In connection with his appointment, the Board granted Mr. Dubin options to purchase 50,000 shares of the Company’s common stock with an exercise price of $4.42 per share, to vest in four equal installments beginning on the grant date.

Mr. Dubin will also enter into an indemnification agreement in the form the Company has entered into with its other nonemployee directors, which form is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed by the Company on March 14, 2024, and is incorporated herein by reference.

A copy of the press release announcing Mr. Dubin’s appointment to the Board is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
