Company Option Plans At the Effective Time, each then outstanding option (collectively, the "Options") to purchase or acquire shares of Company Common Stock under the Company's 1993 Stock Option Plan, as amended, the Company's 1998 Incentive Compensation Plan and the director option to purchase 48,660 shares of Company Common Stock (collectively, the "Option Plans"), whether or not then exercisable or vested, shall be cancelled and shall represent the right to receive in cash an amount equal to the product of (i) the number of shares of Company Common Stock subject to each such Option and (ii) the excess of (A) the Common Stock Merger Consideration over (B) the per share exercise price of such Option. Prior to the Effective Time, the Company shall take all actions (including, if appropriate, obtaining any consents from holders of Options or making any amendments to the terms of the Option Plans) that are necessary to give effect to the transactions contemplated by this Section. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section, payment may be withheld in respect of any stock option until necessary consents are obtained.
Company Options Each Company Option that is outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time (whether or not vested) shall, as of the Effective Time, by virtue of the occurrence of the Effective Time and without any further action on the part of the holder thereof, Parent, or the Company, be canceled and converted into the right to receive cash, without interest, in an amount equal to the product of (i) the total number of Company Shares subject to such Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time, multiplied by (ii) the excess of (A) the Consideration over (B) the exercise price payable per Share under such Company Option, which amount shall be paid in accordance with Section 8.2 (the “Option Consideration”). No holder of a Company Option that has an exercise price per Share that is equal to or greater than the Consideration shall be entitled to any payment with respect to any such canceled Company Option before or after the Effective Time, and any such Company Option shall be canceled and shall cease to exist as of the Effective Time and no consideration shall be delivered in exchange therefor.
Option Plans There is no share option plan or similar plan to acquire any additional shares or units or other equity interests, as the case may be, of IEM or securities convertible or exercisable into or exchangeable for, or which otherwise confer on the holder thereof any right to acquire, any such additional shares or units or equity interests, as the case may be.
Company Stock Plans (a) Effective as of the Effective Time, each outstanding stock option, stock equivalent right or right to acquire Shares (each a “Company Option” and collectively, the “Company Options”) granted under the Company’s 1991 Incentive Stock Option Plan, 1997 Stock Option Plan or 2005 Stock Incentive Plan (the “Company Stock Plans”) or granted outside of a plan, without regard to the extent then vested and exercisable, shall be cancelled and, in consideration of such cancellation, Parent shall, or shall cause the Surviving Corporation to, promptly following the Effective Time, pay to such holders of Company Options, an amount in respect thereof equal to the product of (x) the excess, if any, of the Offer Price over the exercise price of each such Company Option and (y) the number of unexercised Shares subject thereto (such payment, if any, to be net of applicable Taxes withheld pursuant to Section 2.5).
Stock Plans With respect to the stock options (the “Stock Options”) granted pursuant to the stock-based compensation plans of the Company and its subsidiaries (the “Company Stock Plans”), (i) each Stock Option intended to qualify as an “incentive stock option” under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), so qualifies, (ii) each grant of a Stock Option was duly authorized 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 stockholder approval by the necessary number of votes or written consents, and the award agreement governing such grant (if any), to the Company’s knowledge, was duly executed and delivered by each party thereto, (iii) each such grant was made in all material respects in accordance with the terms of the Company Stock Plans, and (iv) each such grant was properly accounted for in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles as applied in the United States (“GAAP”) in the financial statements (including the related notes) of the Company.
Company Option The Company shall have an option to purchase all or any portion of the Vested Shares which are the subject of a Sale Notice at the lesser of the price specified in the Offer or Fair Market Value, as determined under Section 3.5, and on the terms specified in Sections 3.6 and 3.7. The Company shall have thirty (30) days after delivery of the Sale Notice to exercise its option (the “Company Option Period”). This option may be exercised by giving written notice of exercise (the “Exercise Notice”) to the Participant during the Company Option Period. Delivery of the Exercise Notice shall obligate the Company to purchase and the Participant to sell the Shares of the Participant identified in the Exercise Notice on the terms provided in this Article III.
Equity Plans Executive shall be entitled to participate in any equity or other employee benefit plan that is generally available to senior executive officers, as distinguished from general management, of the Company. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, Executive’s participation in and benefits under any such plan shall be on the terms and subject to the conditions specified in the governing document of the particular plan.
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.
Company RSUs At the Effective Time, each restricted stock unit in respect of Company Shares with only time-based vesting requirements (each, a “Company RSU”) that is outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, shall, automatically and without any action on the part of the holder thereof, be converted into a restricted stock unit denominated in Parent Shares relating to the number of Parent Shares (rounded down to the nearest whole number) equal to (i) the number of Company Shares subject to such Company RSU immediately prior to the Effective Time multiplied by (ii) the Exchange Ratio. Except as specifically provided above, following the Effective Time, each such restricted stock unit shall continue to be governed by the same terms and conditions (including vesting terms and double-trigger termination protection) as were applicable to such Company RSU immediately prior to the Effective Time.
Treatment of Company Options (a) Immediately prior to the Effective Time, except as set forth on Section 4.02 of the Disclosure Schedule, the Company will cause any unvested Company Options to vest in their entirety. At the Effective Time, all Company Options outstanding and unexercised immediately prior to the Effective Time, automatically and without any action on the part of any Company Optionholder or beneficiary thereof, will be assumed by Tuatara, and each such Company Option shall be converted into a stock option (each, a “Converted Option”) to purchase shares of Surviving Pubco Common Stock. Each such Converted Option as so assumed and converted shall continue to have and be subject to substantially the same terms and conditions as were applicable to such Company Option immediately before the Effective Time (including vesting (if applicable), expiration date and exercise provisions), except that, as of the Effective Time, each such Converted Option as so assumed and converted shall be exercisable for that number of shares of Surviving Pubco Common Stock determined by multiplying the number of Company Shares subject to such Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time by the Exchange Ratio, which product shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number of shares, at a per share exercise price determined by dividing the per share exercise price of such Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time by the Exchange Ratio, which quotient shall be rounded up to the nearest whole cent; provided that the exercise price and the number of shares of Surviving Pubco Common Stock purchasable under each Converted Option shall be determined in a manner intended to be consistent with the requirements of Section 409A of the Code and the applicable regulations promulgated thereunder; provided further that in the case of any Company Option to which Section 422 of the Code applies, the exercise price and the number of shares of Surviving Pubco Common Stock purchasable under such Converted Option shall be determined in accordance with the foregoing in a manner that is intended to satisfy the requirements of Section 424(a) of the Code. As of the Effective Time, all Company Options shall no longer be outstanding and each holder of Converted Options shall cease to have any rights with respect to such Company Options, except as set forth in this Section 4.02(a).
