REGARDING PROPOSAL NO. 2 – APPROVAL OF 2018 INCENTIVE COMPENSATION PLAN
As disclosed in the Proxy Statement, the Company’s stockholders are being asked to vote on a proposal to approve the Company’s 2018 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Plan”), which was approved by the board of directors on July 18, 2018. As disclosed in the Proxy Statement, the Company has issued options to purchase 750,000 shares of common stock under the Plan to 39 employees at an exercise price of $2.40 per share. Set forth below is additional information about the persons eligible to receive grants or awards under the Plan, as well as the stock options that have already been issued thereunder:
|·||Awards under the Plan may be made to the officers, directors, employees, consultants and other persons who provide services to our company or any related entity. As of April 26, 2019, the Company had 63 officers and employees, seven directors (three of whom are officers), and approximately three consultants, all of whom would be eligible to received awards under the Plan. Eligibility under the Plan is not limited to persons who are currently officers, directors, employees, consultants and other persons. The Company is not able to predict the future number of officers, directors, employees, consultants or other persons that the Company may employ or retain.|
|·||The Plan does not contain any specific criteria for receipt of an award under the Plan, and awards may be made at the sole discretion of the Compensation Committee.|
|·||As disclosed in the Proxy, on July 18, 2018, the Company issued options to purchase 750,000 shares of common stock under the Plan to 39 non-officer employees of the Company. Each of the options is exercisable at $2.40 per share for ten years, subject to the recipient’s meeting the vesting criteria in the option. The only material condition to exercise of the options is that the option has vested at the time of exercise. Each of the options vests in equal parts over 5 years on an annual basis from the date of grant. Since the grant date, 52,000 options have been forfeited by several recipients whose employment with the Company has terminated. All of the options are exercisable for cash for the exercise price or on a cashless basis. The Company did not receive any consideration for the grant of the outstanding options.|
|·||As disclosed on page 18 of the Proxy, the dollar value of the stock options on the date of grant was $1,800,000. The market value of the outstanding options (after taking into consideration 52,000 options which have been forfeited) was $6,309,920, based on the closing price of the common stock of $9.04 on April 26, 2019.|
|·||The tax consequences of exercising the outstanding options are described on page 19 of the Proxy.|
You do not have to take any action if you have already voted your shares and do not wish to revoke or change your votes. Your votes will be tabulated at the 2019 Annual Meeting as you instructed.
If you have already voted your shares and wish to revoke your proxy or change your voting instructions, you may do so prior to the vote at the 2019 Annual Meeting. A stockholder of record who has given a proxy may revoke it at any time before the closing of the polls by the inspector of elections at the meeting by: delivering to our Secretary (by any means, including facsimile) a written notice stating that the proxy is revoked; signing and delivering a proxy bearing a later date; voting again through the Internet; or attending and voting at the Annual Meeting (although attendance at the meeting will not, by itself, revoke a proxy). Please note, however, that if your shares are held of record by a brokerage firm, bank or other nominee and you wish to revoke a proxy, you must contact that firm to revoke or change any prior voting instructions. Please refer to the voting instructions in the Proxy Statement for more information.
