|Initial Equity Grant:|| |
Each Non-Employee Director who is initially elected or appointed to serve on the Board after the Effective Date shall automatically be granted under the Plan or any other applicable Company equity incentive plan then-maintained by the Company an option (the Initial Option) to purchase that number of shares of the Companys common stock (the Common Stock) that have a Black-Scholes Value (as defined below) equal to $360,000, rounded down to the nearest whole share. For purposes hereof, Black-Scholes Value means the fair value of an option determined using the Black-Scholes pricing model based on the Fair Market Value of the Common Stock and the volatility, risk-free rate and life expectancy assumptions in the Companys most recent financial statements disclosing those assumptions.
The Initial Option will be automatically granted on the date on which such Non-Employee Director commences service on the Board and will vest as to 1/36th of the shares subject thereto on each monthly anniversary of the date of grant, subject to the Non-Employee Director continuing in service to the Company and its subsidiaries through each vesting date.
|Annual Equity Grant:|| |
Each Non-Employee Director who (i) has been serving on the Board effective immediately prior to the annual meeting of the Companys stockholders after the Effective Date (each, an Annual Meeting) and (ii) will continue to serve as a Non-Employee Director immediately following such Annual Meeting, shall automatically be granted under the Plan an option to purchase that number of shares of Common Stock (the Annual Option) that have a Black-Scholes Value equal to $185,000, rounded down to the nearest whole share. In the event that a Non-Employee Director has commenced service on the Board on or within twelve (12) months from the date of the Annual Meeting, such Non-Employee Director shall be granted a pro-rated portion of the Annual Option equal to (i) the full value Annual Option multiplied by (ii) a fraction where the numerator is the number days from the commencement of service on the Board through the Annual Meeting and the denominator is 365.
The Annual Option will be automatically granted on the date of the applicable Annual Meeting, and will vest in full upon the earlier of (i) the first anniversary of the date of grant and (ii) immediately prior to the Annual Meeting that occurs following the date of grant, subject to the Non-Employee Director continuing in service to the Company and its subsidiaries through such vesting date.
Unless otherwise provided by the Board, no portion of an Initial Option or Annual Option which is unvested or, as applicable, unexercisable at the time of a Non-Employee Directors termination of service with the Company (as determined by the Board) shall become vested and, as applicable, exercisable thereafter. Any Initial Option or Annual Option granted hereunder shall be subject to the Plan and the applicable standard form of award agreement thereunder, as modified to reflect the terms herein.
Members of the Board who are employees of the Company or any parent or subsidiary of the Company who subsequently terminate their service with the Company and any parent or subsidiary of the Company and remain on the Board will not receive an Initial Option, but to the extent that they are otherwise eligible, will be eligible to receive, after termination from service with the Company and any parent or subsidiary of the Company, Annual Options as described above.

Upon a Change in Control, all outstanding equity awards granted under the Plan and any other equity incentive plan maintained by the Company that are held by a Non-Employee Director shall become fully vested and/or exercisable, irrespective of any other provisions of the Non-Employee Directors award agreement, subject to such Non-Employee Directors continued service as of immediately prior to such Change in Control.
The Company shall reimburse each Non-Employee Director for all reasonable, documented, out-of-pocket travel and other business expenses incurred by such Non-Employee Director in the performance of his or her duties to the Company in accordance with the Companys applicable expense reimbursement policies and procedures as in effect from time to time.
