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


On February 6, 2023, Richard White notified Parts iD, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) of his resignation from the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), effective immediately. Mr. White’s decision to resign from the Board is solely for personal reasons and is not the result of any disagreement with the Company with respect to any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices, or any disagreements in respect of accounting principles, financial statement disclosure, or any issue impacting the Audit Committee of the Board (the committee on which he served). Rahul Petkar, a current independent director, was appointed as a member of the Company’s Audit Committee in replacement of Mr. White.


Item 8.01 Other Events.


Effective immediately, the Company is implementing a restructuring plan approved by the Board to streamline its operations in light of its current liquidity needs and financial condition. In connection therewith, the Company is reducing its employment base by two-thirds in the United States and similarly significantly reducing its independent contractors in Ukraine, Costa Rica and the Philippines. The employees and independent contractors affected by this reduction were informed of the Company’s decision beginning on February 7, 2023. Each affected employee in the United States will be paid such employee’s respective salary through such employee’s termination date and the Company is unable to offer severance to any of the affected employees. In addition, the Company has reduced the salaries of the remaining employees by ten percent to decrease operating expenses moving forward.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
