Stock Option The Company shall recommend to the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) that Executive be granted a stock option, which will be, to the extent possible under the $100,000 rule of Section 422(d) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), an “incentive stock option” (as defined in Section 422 of the Code), to purchase 250,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock at an exercise price equal to the price per share of the Company’s Common Stock as listed on the Nasdaq National Market on the date of grant as determined by the Board (the “Option”). Subject to the accelerated vesting provisions set forth herein, the Option will vest as to 25% of the shares subject to the Option one year after the date of grant, and as to 1/48th of the shares subject to the Option monthly thereafter, so that the Option will be fully vested and exercisable four (4) years from the date of grant, subject to Executive’s continued service to the Company on the relevant vesting dates. The Option will be subject to the terms, definitions and provisions of the Company’s 1999 Stock Option Plan (the “Option Plan”) and the stock option agreement by and between Executive and the Company (the “Option Agreement”), both of which documents are incorporated herein by reference.
Nonstatutory Stock Option If the Grant Notice so designates, this Option is intended to be a Nonstatutory Stock Option and shall not be treated as an Incentive Stock Option within the meaning of Section 422(b) of the Code.
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.
Share Options With respect to the options (the “Share Options”) granted pursuant to the share-based compensation or share incentive plans of the Company and its Subsidiaries (the “Company Share Plans”), (i) each grant of a Share Option was duly authorized no later than the date on which the grant of such Share Option was by its terms to be effective by all necessary corporate action, including, as applicable, approval by the board of directors of the Company (or a duly constituted and authorized committee thereof) and any required shareholder approval by the necessary number of votes or written consents, and the award agreement governing such grant (if any) was duly executed and delivered by each party thereto, and (ii) each such grant was properly accounted for in accordance with GAAP in the financial statements (including the related notes) of the Company and disclosed in the Company’s filings with the Commission in accordance with the Exchange Act and all other applicable laws. The Company has not knowingly granted, and there is no and has been no policy or practice of the Company of granting, Share Options prior to, or otherwise coordinating the grant of Share Options with, the release or other public announcement of material information regarding the Company or its subsidiaries or their results of operations 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 50,000. 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.
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.
Option Right Landlord hereby grants to the originally named Tenant herein (the "Original Tenant") and any "Affiliate Assignee" or "Permitted Transferee," as such terms are defined in Sections 14.8 and 14.9, below, or other assignee of Tenant's entire interest in the Lease that is approved by Landlord pursuant to Article 14, below (an "Approved Assignee") one ( I ) option to extend the Lease Term for a period of five (5) years (the "Option Term"). The option to extend shall be exercisable only by notice delivered by Tenant to Landlord as provided in Section 2.2.3, below, provided that, as of the date of delivery of such notice, Tenant is not in default under this Lease (beyond the expiration of any applicable notice and cure period expressly set forth in this Lease). Upon the proper exercise of the option to extend, and provided that, at Landlord's option, as of the end of the initial Lease Term, Tenant is not in default under this Lease (beyond the expiration of any applicable notice and cure period expressly set forth in this Lease), the Lease Term shall be extended for a period of five (5) years. The rights contained in this Section 2.2 shall be personal to the originally named tenant herein (the "Original Tenant"), and any Affiliate Assignee, Permitted Transferee or Approved Assignee (and not any sublessee or other "Transferee," as that term is defined in Section 14 . 1, below, of Tenant's interest in this Lease). In the event that Tenant fails to timely and appropriately exercise its option to extend in accordance with the terms of this Section 2.2, then the option to extend granted to Tenant pursuant to the terms of this Section 2.2 shall automatically terminate and shall be of no further force or effect.
Standard Option The Connecting Transmission Owner shall design, procure, and construct the Connecting Transmission Owner’s Attachment Facilities and System Upgrade Facilities and System Deliverability Upgrades, using Reasonable Efforts to complete the Connecting Transmission Owner’s Attachment Facilities and System Upgrade Facilities and System Deliverability Upgrades by the dates set forth in Appendix B hereto. The Connecting Transmission Owner shall not be required to undertake any action which is inconsistent with its standard safety practices, its material and equipment specifications, its design criteria and construction procedures, its labor agreements, and Applicable Laws and Regulations. In the event the Connecting Transmission Owner reasonably expects that it will not be able to complete the Connecting Transmission Owner’s Attachment Facilities and System Upgrade Facilities and System Deliverability Upgrades by the specified dates, the Connecting Transmission Owner shall promptly provide written notice to the Developer and NYISO, and shall undertake Reasonable Efforts to meet the earliest dates thereafter.
NSO If the Optionee holds NSO Shares for at least one year, any gain realized on disposition of the Shares will be treated as long-term capital gain for federal income tax purposes.
Exercisability of Option Unless otherwise provided in this Option Agreement or the Plan, the Option shall entitle the Optionee to purchase, in whole at any time or in part from time to time, one-third (1/3rd) of the total number of shares covered by the Option on the first anniversary of the Grant Date, an additional one-third (1/3rd) of the total number of Shares covered by the Option on the second anniversary of the Grant Date and the final one-third (1/3rd) of the total number of Shares covered by the Option on the expiration of the third anniversary of the Grant Date. Each such right of purchase shall be cumulative and shall continue, unless sooner exercised or terminated as herein provided, during the remaining period of the Exercise Term. Any fractional number of shares resulting from the application of the foregoing percentages shall be rounded to the next higher whole number of Shares (not to exceed the total number of Shares granted as provided in Section 1.1).
