This letter agreement (this “Letter Agreement”) is to confirm our mutual understanding and agreement concerning your transition from the position of Chief Financial Officer and to provide for an amendment to the terms of the Executive Agreement (the “Executive Agreement”), dated effective as of January 18, 2019, and amended as of March 4, 2022, by and between you and Dollar Tree, Inc. and each of its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”).
In connection with such transition, we have agreed upon an executive transition process whereby (i) a successor Chief Financial Officer will be selected and hired by the Company, (ii) you will continue in your current role until such successor begins serving (the “Transition Date”), and (iii) you will continue as an employee of the Company following the Transition Date until your separation from the Company on or about April 30, 2023 (“Separation Date”), during which time you will provide such transition or other duties as requested by the Company. During the transition period from the date of this Letter Agreement until your Separation Date, your current base salary and other employee benefits shall remain in effect, and you will be entitled to receive any incentive cash bonus or equity payouts from existing programs and grants in April 2023 to the extent earned and payable in accordance with their terms. You will not be eligible to receive any new equity grants or participate in the annual cash bonus plan in fiscal 2023.
In addition, we have agreed to the following provisions which shall amend the terms and conditions set forth in the Executive Agreement:
1. Definitions. Unless otherwise defined in this Letter Agreement, capitalized terms used herein shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Executive Agreement.

In the event Executive accepts an offer of employment or an offer to provide services in a consulting or other capacity during the Salary Continuation Period, Executive agrees to so inform the Company within three (3) business days, at which time Salary Continuation payments under this Section 4.a shall cease.
3. Amendment to Section 4.e. Clause (i) of Section 4.e of the Executive Agreement is hereby amended and restated as follows:
