Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;

           Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain
           Officers.


On August 19, 2020, Turning Point Brands, Inc. (the "Company") announced the appointment of Brittani Cushman as General Counsel successor. Mr. Dobbins, currently the Company's Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, will terminate employment on October 31, 2020, following more than 20 years leading the Company's legal and governance functions. In connection with the succession, the Company and Mr. Dobbins entered into a Release and Severance Agreement (the "Severance Agreement"), along with a Consulting Agreement (the "Consulting Agreement") which is effective November 1, 2020.

The Severance Agreement provides that the Company will pay Mr. Dobbins the "Severance Benefits" as provided in the Employment Letter, dated as of November 23, 2015 (the "Employment Agreement"), i.e., the continuation of his current salary for one year and a severance bonus equal to the average of the annual cash bonuses received for the 24 months before separation, with the following modifications to the terms in the Employment Agreement: (i) any accrued, unused vacation will be paid following termination; (ii) COBRA premiums will be paid for 18 months for medical, dental, and vision coverage; (iii) Mr. Dobbins shall vest as of October 31, 2020, in outstanding stock option awards under the Company's 2006 and 2015 Equity Incentive Plans (the "Equity Plans"), the options shall only become exercisable on the original vesting dates stated at grant of the options, and those options will continue to be exercisable until their original expiration date as if Mr. Dobbins' employment continued; and (iv) Mr. Dobbins shall vest and be entitled to payment of any performance restricted stock units or similar awards under the Equity Plans, if any value is payable and on the same date as payable had employment continued, as and when therein required. The Company's obligation to provide these payments and benefits is contingent on Mr. Dobbins' non-revocation of the release set forth in the Severance Agreement.

Pursuant to the Consulting Agreement, Mr. Dobbins has agreed to provide his services in order to transfer relevant knowledge, provide interim support, and facilitate the transition of his work to others as well as continue to provide his insights on ongoing business, legal, and regulatory issues ("Services"). The Company will pay Mr. Dobbins in monthly increments at an annual rate of $100,000. The Consulting Agreement expires October 31, 2022. The Consulting Agreement provides that the terms of the non-competition clauses of the Employment Agreement are extended six months beyond the termination of the Consulting Agreement.

Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On August 19, 2020, the Company issued a press release, attached as Exhibit 99.1, announcing the appointment of Brittani Cushman as General Counsel successor. Mr. Dobbins, currently the Company's Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, will step down October 31, 2020. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

The information set forth in the attached Exhibit 99.1 shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
