Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

On July 15, 2020, the shareholders of Intec Pharma Ltd. (the “Company”) approved at the 2020 annual meeting of shareholders of the Company (the “Annual Meeting”) an amendment to its 2015 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2015 Plan”) to increase the number of ordinary shares authorized for issuance under the 2015 Plan by 3,500,000 ordinary shares. A summary of the material features of the 2015 Plan is set forth in the Company’s definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 8, 2020 (the “Proxy Statement”).

 

Following the recommendation of the Company’s Compensation Committee and approval of the Board, at the Annual Meeting, the Company’s shareholders approved a new compensation policy (the “New Compensation Policy”). A summary of the material features of the New Compensation Policy is set forth in the Proxy Statement and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the New Compensation Policy, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

In addition, following the recommendation of the Company’s Compensation Committee and approval of the Board, at the Annual Meeting the Company’s shareholders approved a grant of 300,000 options to purchase ordinary shares to Jeffrey Meckler, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, at a per share exercise price of $0.3075. Subject to Mr. Meckler’s continued employment by the Company, the options will vest over three years according to the following schedule: 33% of the options shall vest and become exercisable on the first anniversary of July 15, 2021, and the remaining portion of the options shall vest and become exercisable on a pro rata basis in eight equal quarterly installments thereafter. The options have a seven-year term, and are subject to such other terms and conditions set forth in an option agreement to be entered into between the Company and Mr. Meckler and the provisions of the 2015 Plan. In the event of a “Merger Transaction” (as such term is defined in the 2015 Plan) any options that have not previously vested shall become vested and exercisable immediately prior to such event.
