On June 30, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of AzurRx BioPharma, Inc. (the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, rescinded and cancelled certain stock option awards previously made under the Company’s Amended and Restated 2014 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the “Prior Awards”) to James Sapirstein, the Company’s President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, and Daniel Schneiderman, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, and issued new awards (the “New Awards”) under the Company’s 2020 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan, as amended and restated (the “2020 Plan”) in an equivalent amount and with equivalent exercise price, vesting and expiration terms to the Prior Awards.
 
The terms of the New Awards are as follows:
 
● 
stock option awards to Mr. Sapirstein covering 900,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 (the “Common Stock”) at an exercise price of $0.85 per share comprised of (i) options to purchase 300,000 shares of Common Stock that vest over a term of 18 months in 18 equal monthly installments starting with the first monthly installment on February 16, 2022, (ii) options to purchase 200,000 shares of Common Stock that vested immediately upon the grant of such options, and (iii) options to purchase 400,000 shares of Common Stock subject to milestone-based vesting based upon the achievement of certain strategic milestones specified by the Board; and
 
● 
stock option awards to Mr. Schneiderman covering an aggregate of 285,006 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.85 per share comprised of (i) options to purchase 250,000 shares of Common Stock, of which options to purchase 79,860 shares of Common Stock vested immediately upon the grant of such options and the remaining options to purchase 170,140 shares of Common Stock will vest over a term of 2 years and 1 month in 25 equal monthly installments, and (ii) options to purchase 35,006 shares of Common Stock, of which options to purchase 17,502 shares of Common Stock vested immediately upon the grant of such options and the remaining options to purchase 17,504 shares of Common Stock vest over a term of 19 months in 19 equal monthly installments.
