Equity Incentive Plan

 

The Company increased the number of shares available for issuance under its 2012 Equity Incentive Plan (as amended, the "Plan") from 850,000 to 1,200,000 in December 2019, which was approved by the Company's shareholders in December 2019. The plan provides for the issuance of up to 1,200,000 shares. The Plan provides for grants of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, other stock-based awards and other cash-based awards. As of March 31, 2020, the remaining shares of common stock available for future issuances of awards was 529,260.

 

Stock options generally vest and become exercisable with respect to 100% of the common stock subject to such stock option on the third (3rd) anniversary of the date of grant. Any unvested portion of a stock option shall expire upon termination of employment or service of the participant granted the stock option, and the vested portion shall remain exercisable in accordance with the provisions of the Plan.
