Inducement Grants

The Company recently approved a generous package of inducement awards for its new Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Rice. This package includes 162,000 performance stock units, 97,200 restricted stock units, and a non-qualified stock option to purchase 94,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. The stock option will have an exercise price equal to the closing price per share on the NASDAQ on July 5, 2023.

The performance stock units will vest based on a three year performance period ending on December 31, 2025, pending Mr. Rice’s continued employment. If there is a Change in Control of the Company during the performance period, then vesting of the PSUs at the target level (or the actual performance, if it is higher) will be accelerated upon Mr. Rice’s termination of employment without Cause or for Good Reason within two years of the Change in Control.

The Company has granted Mr. Rice Restricted Stock Units (RSUs), Performance Stock Units (PSUs) and Options, approved by the Board of Directors in reliance on the NASDAQ Listing Rule 5635(c)(4) employment inducement exemption. The RSUs will vest over the course of a three year period, one third annually, subject to Mr. Rice’s continued employment.

The Options have a four year vesting period, 25% per year, with an additional one year exercise period and a seven year expiration date. They will also vest in the case of a termination of employment due to Change in Control prior to the end of the vesting period. By granting these awards, the Company is publicly announcing the inducement awards in compliance with the listing rule, allowing Mr. Rice to benefit from these incentives.
