Incentive Stock Option If this Option qualifies as an ISO, the Optionee will have no regular federal income tax liability upon its exercise, although the excess, if any, of the Fair Market Value of the Exercised Shares on the date of exercise over their aggregate Exercise Price will be treated as an adjustment to alternative minimum taxable income for federal tax purposes and may subject the Optionee to alternative minimum tax in the year of exercise. In the event that the Optionee ceases to be an Employee but remains a Service Provider, any Incentive Stock Option of the Optionee that remains unexercised shall cease to qualify as an Incentive Stock Option and will be treated for tax purposes as a Nonstatutory Stock Option on the date three (3) months and one (1) day following such change of status.
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 Award The Company shall grant to the Executive a non-qualified stock option (the “Option”) representing the right to purchase forty thousand (40,000) shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company (“Company Common Stock”). The Option shall be exercisable at a per share exercise price equal to the fair market value of a share of Company Common Stock as of the Effective Date, as determined by the Board or the Compensation Committee. The Option shall vest and become exercisable, on a cumulative basis, at the rate of one-third (1/3) of the number of shares of Company Common Stock subject to the Option on each of the Effective Date and the first and second anniversaries of the Effective Date, subject to the continued employment of the Executive by the Company. The Option shall expire ten (10) years after the grant of the Option and shall terminate earlier in the event of the termination of the Executive’s employment with the Company. The Option shall be transferable by the Executive to certain of the Executive’s family members, or a trust for such family members, subject to the terms and conditions of the Company’s stock incentive plan. The Option shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the Company’s stock incentive plan, the applicable option agreement and this Agreement.
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 Plan, 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 her consent, of this Option or any of her rights hereunder. Pursuant to the Plan, the Committee 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. The Plan, as amended from time to time, is hereby incorporated by reference.
Nonstatutory Stock Option The Optionee may incur regular federal income tax liability upon exercise of a NSO. The Optionee will be treated as having received compensation income (taxable at ordinary income tax rates) equal to the excess, if any, of the Fair Market Value of the Exercised Shares on the date of exercise over their aggregate Exercise Price. If the Optionee is an Employee or a former Employee, the Company will be required to withhold from his or her compensation or collect from Optionee and pay to the applicable taxing authorities an amount in cash equal to a percentage of this compensation income at the time of exercise, and may refuse to honor the exercise and refuse to deliver Shares if such withholding amounts are not delivered at the time of exercise.
Nonqualified Stock Option The Stock Option shall not be treated as an Incentive Stock Option.
Stock Option Subject to the approval of the Board, Executive will be granted an option to purchase 35,000 shares of the common stock of the Company at an exercise price equal to the closing price per share of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant or the last trading day preceding the date of grant if the date of grant is not a trading day (the “Option”). Subject to Executive’s continued service to the Company through the applicable vesting date, the 25% of the shares subject to the Option will vest on the first anniversary of the Start Date, and the remaining shares subject to the Option will vest in 36 substantially equal monthly installments thereafter, such that the Option will be fully vested on the fourth anniversary of the Start Date. The Option will be subject to the terms of the Company’s 2020 Incentive Award Plan (the “Plan”) and a stock option agreement to be entered into between Executive and the Company.
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.
Employee Stock Options (a) At the Effective Time, each Eligible Stock Option that is then outstanding under the Company Option Plan, whether vested or unvested, shall be assumed by Parent in accordance with the terms (as in effect as of the date of this Agreement) of the Company Option Plan and the stock option agreement by which such Eligible Stock Option is evidenced. All rights with respect to Company Common Stock under outstanding Eligible Stock Options shall thereupon be converted into rights with respect to Parent Common Stock. Accordingly, from and after the Effective Time, (a) each Eligible Stock Option assumed by Parent may be exercised solely for shares of Parent Common Stock, (b) the number of shares of Parent Common Stock subject to each such assumed Eligible Stock Option shall be equal to the number of shares of Company Common Stock that were subject to such Eligible Stock Option immediately prior to the Effective Time multiplied by the Exchange Ratio, rounded down to the nearest whole number of shares of Parent Common Stock, (c) the per share exercise price for the Parent Common Stock issuable upon exercise of each such assumed Eligible Stock Option shall be determined by dividing the exercise price per share of Company Common Stock subject to such Eligible Stock Option, as in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time, by the Exchange Ratio, and rounding the resulting exercise price up to the nearest whole cent, and (d) all restrictions on the exercise of each such assumed Eligible Stock Option shall continue in full force and effect, and the term, exercisability, vesting schedule and other provisions of such Eligible Stock Option shall otherwise remain unchanged; provided, however, that each such assumed Eligible Stock Option shall, in accordance with its terms, be subject to further adjustment as appropriate to reflect any stock split, reverse stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization or other similar transaction effected by Parent after the Effective Time. The Company and Parent shall take all action that may be necessary (under the Company Option Plan and otherwise) to effectuate the provisions of this Section 1.6.
