Adoption of Director Compensation Policy

 

On December 8, 2020, the compensation committee of the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) approved the Company’s Non-Employee Director Compensation Policy (the “Director Compensation Policy”) to become effective as of December 8, 2020. The Director Compensation Policy provides for cash and equity compensation to be paid to non-employee members of the Board. Under the Director Compensation Policy, each non-employee director will be eligible to receive an annual cash retainer (the “Cash Retainer”) and an annual equity-based retainer (the “Equity Retainer”), payable 50% in restricted stock units of the Company (“Director RSUs”) and 50% in options to purchase Company common stock (“Director Options”). Members of the audit committee and any committee chairs are eligible to receive an additional retainer equal to $50,000, payable in Director Options. All members of the Board will be reimbursed for their costs and expenses in attending Board meetings.

 

The Cash Retainer is equal to $25,000 and will be paid beginning in calendar year 2021, in equal quarterly installments, in arrears, following the end of the calendar quarter in which the service occurred.

 

The Equity Retainer is equal to $150,000, with the initial Equity Retainer granted to existing non-employee members of the Board as of December 8, 2020. Future Equity Retainers will generally be granted on the second trading day following each annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders. Any individual that becomes a non-employee director for the first time other than by election or appointment at an annual meeting of the Company’s stockholders will be granted an Equity Retainer in connection with the next annual meeting so long as such annual meeting is more than four calendar months from the date such individual becomes a non-employee director.

 

Director RSUs will be granted pursuant to the Company’s 2020 Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) and an underlying Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement for directors (an “Director RSU Agreement”), and will vest on the earlier of (x) the first anniversary of the grant date, (y) immediately prior to the date of the next annual shareholders meeting of the Company, or (z) a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan), in each case subject to the director’s continued service on such vesting date. Director RSUs will immediately be settled upon vesting.

 

Director Options will be granted pursuant to the Plan and an underlying Option Award Agreement for directors (an “Director Option Agreement”), and will vest on the earlier of (x) the first anniversary of the grant date, (y) immediately prior to the date of the next annual shareholders meeting of the Company, or (z) a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan).

 

The foregoing description of the Director Compensation Policy does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the terms and conditions of the Director Compensation Policy, the Director RSU Agreement and the Director Option Agreement. The Director Compensation Policy, and forms of each of the Director RSU Agreement and the Director Option Agreement, are respectively included as Exhibit 10.14, Exhibit 10.15 and Exhibit 10.16 to this Current Report and are each incorporated herein by reference.
