Powderham, a British citizen, signed a 3-year contract to develop a European market for Synergy. The contract allowed Synergy to terminate Powderham "at any time by giving thirty (30) days' written notice if Company is dissatisfied..." Powderham established markets in Germany and Austria, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Synergy terminated Powderham after a year and a half, citing lower than expected sales, poor working relationships and failure to perform the services in the manner expected. Powderham sued, alleging that the poor sales were Synergy's fault and that the reasons given for his termination were pretextual.
