Additional Terms Applicable to an Incentive Option In the event this option is designated an Incentive Option in the Grant Notice, the following terms and conditions shall also apply to the grant:
Incentive Stock Option If the Grant Notice so designates, this Option is intended to be an Incentive Stock Option within the meaning of Section 422(b) of the Code, but the Company does not represent or warrant that this Option qualifies as such. The Participant should consult with the Participant’s own tax advisor regarding the tax effects of this Option and the requirements necessary to obtain favorable income tax treatment under Section 422 of the Code, including, but not limited to, holding period requirements. (NOTE TO PARTICIPANT: If the Option is exercised more than three (3) months after the date on which you cease to be an Employee (other than by reason of your death or permanent and total disability as defined in Section 22(e)(3) of the Code), the Option will be treated as a Nonstatutory Stock Option and not as an Incentive Stock Option to the extent required by Section 422 of the Code.)
NOTICE OF STOCK OPTION GRANT Name: Address: The undersigned Participant has been granted an Option to purchase Common Stock of the Company, subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan and this Option Agreement, as follows: Date of Grant: Vesting Commencement Date: Exercise Price per Share: $ Total Number of Shares Granted: Total Exercise Price: $ Type of Option: Incentive Stock Option Term/Expiration Date: Vesting Schedule: This Option shall be exercisable, in whole or in part, according to the following vesting schedule: [Twenty-five percent (25%) of the Shares subject to the Option shall vest on the one (1) year anniversary of the Vesting Commencement Date, and one forty-eighth (1/48th) of the Shares subject to the Option shall vest each month thereafter on the same day of the month as the Vesting Commencement Date (and if there is no corresponding day, on the last day of the month), subject to Participant continuing to be a Service Provider through each such date.]
Stock Option Grant Subject to approval by the Board (or a committee thereof), the Company will grant the Executive a stock option (the “Option”) to purchase shares determined by the Board of Directors of the Company’s common stock at a price per share not less than the per-share fair market value of the common stock on the date of grant, as reasonably determined by the Board (or a committee thereof). The Option will vest with respect to twenty- five percent (25%) of the shares subject to the Option on the first anniversary of the grant date of the Option. The remaining seventy-five percent (75%) of the shares subject to the Option will vest in 24 months substantially equal monthly installments thereafter. In each case, the vesting of the Option is subject to the Executive’s continued employment by the Company through the respective vesting date. The maximum term of the Option will be ten (10) years, subject to earlier termination upon the termination of the Executive’s employment with the Company, a change in control of the Company and similar events. The Option shall be intended as an “incentive stock option” under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended (the “Code”), subject to the terms and conditions of Section 422 of the Code (including, without limitation, the Code limitation on the number of options that may become exercisable in any given year and still qualify as such an incentive stock option). The Option shall be granted under the Company’s Performance Incentive Plan and shall be subject to such further terms and conditions as set forth in the Company’s standard form of award agreement for stock options granted under the plan.
Stock Option Plan This Option is subject to, and the Company and the Grantee agree to be bound by, all of the terms and conditions of the Company's 2004 Non-Statutory Stock Option Plan under which this Option was granted, as the same shall have been amended from time to time in accordance with the terms thereof, provided that no such amendment shall deprive the Grantee, without his consent, of this Option or any of his rights hereunder. Pursuant to said Plan, the board of directors of the Company or its Committee established for such purposes is vested with final authority to interpret and construe the Plan and this Option, and is authorized to adopt rules and regulations for carrying out the Plan. A copy of the Plan in its present form is available for inspection during business hours by the Grantee or other persons entitled to exercise this Option at the Company's principal office.
Stock Option Grants Subject to this Section 3.4, on the Effective Date the Company will grant to the Executive a nonqualified stock option (the “Option”) to purchase 250,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, no par value (the “Common Stock”). The exercise price per share of the Option will be equal to the fair market value of a share of the Common Stock on the Effective Date. The Board (or Compensation Committee thereof) will determine such fair market value in its reasonable, good faith discretion (it being intended that, if the Common Stock is then not publicly traded other than on the over-the-counter market, such fair market value shall be based on the last sales price for a share of Common Stock as quoted on the Pink Sheets unless such methodology does not, in the Board’s reasonable, good faith discretion, produce an accurate fair market value in the circumstances). The Option will vest in substantially equal annual installments (equal installments except that the installments will be rounded to produce vesting installments of whole share increments) over the three-year period following the Effective Date. Except as otherwise provided herein or in the Option Agreement referenced below, in each case, the vesting of each installment of the Option is subject to the Executive’s continued employment by the Company through the respective vesting date. The maximum term of the Option will be ten (10) years from the date of grant of the Option, subject to earlier termination upon the termination of the Executive’s employment with the Company, a change in control of the Company and similar events. The Option shall be subject to such further terms and conditions as set forth in a written stock option agreement to be entered into by the Company and the Executive to evidence the Option (the “Option Agreement”). The Option Agreement shall be in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit C. Executive shall also be eligible to participate in and receive additional grants commensurate with his position and level in any stock option plan and restricted stock plan or other equity-based or equity related compensation plan, programs or agreements of the Company made available generally to its senior executives; provided that the amount, timing, and other terms of any future grant shall be determined by the Board (or the Compensation Committee thereof) in its sole discretion.
Incentive Stock Options If the Shares are held for more than twelve (12) months after the date of the transfer of the Shares pursuant to the exercise of an ISO and are disposed of more than two (2) years after the Date of Grant, any gain realized on disposition of the Shares will be treated as long term capital gain for federal and California income tax purposes. If Shares purchased under an ISO are disposed of within the applicable one (1) year or two (2) year period, any gain realized on such disposition will be treated as compensation income (taxable at ordinary income rates) to the extent of the excess, if any, of the Fair Market Value of the Shares on the date of exercise over the Exercise Price.
Stock Option Agreement In addition to the salary hereinabove provided, the Executive shall be granted options to purchase 25,000 shares of the Corporation's Common Stock as of January 1 of each year during the Term of this Agreement at an exercise price equal to to average of the closing bid and asked price of the Corporation's Common Stock during month of December immediately preceeding said January 1, pursuant to the terms of the Stock Option Agreement between the Corporation and the Executive executed concurrently herewith.
Stock Option Plans Each stock option granted by the Company under the Company’s stock option plan was granted (i) in accordance with the terms of the Company’s stock option plan and (ii) with an exercise price at least equal to the fair market value of the Common Stock on the date such stock option would be considered granted under GAAP and applicable law. No stock option granted under the Company’s stock option plan has been backdated. The Company has not knowingly granted, and there is no and has been no Company policy or practice to knowingly grant, stock options prior to, or otherwise knowingly coordinate the grant of stock options with, the release or other public announcement of material information regarding the Company or its Subsidiaries or their financial results or prospects.
Stock Option Award Within the 60-day period following the Start Date, Executive will receive an award of stock options to purchase Common Stock (the “Options”). The terms and conditions of the Options will be governed by Parent’s 2010 Equity Incentive Plan and the Stock Option Agreement in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit A. The number of shares covered by such Options shall equal 8,500. The Options shall have a per share exercise price equal to the fair market value per share of such Option on the date of grant, as determined by the Board.
