In furtherance of the purpose stated above, all non-employee directors shall be paid compensation for services provided to the Company as set forth below:
Annual Retainer for Board Membership: $35,000 for general availability and participation in meetings and conference calls of our Board of Directors, to be paid quarterly in arrears, pro-rated based on the number of actual days served by the director during such calendar quarter.

Initial Award: An initial, one-time stock option award (the “Initial Award”) of 44,000 shares will be granted to each new non-employee director upon his or her election to the Board of Directors, which shall vest in equal quarterly installments over three years from the date of vesting commencement, provided, however, that all vesting shall cease if the director resigns from the Board of Directors or otherwise ceases to serve as a director of the Company. The Initial Award shall expire ten years from the date of grant, and shall have a per share exercise price equal to the Fair Market Value (as defined in the Company’s 2019 Stock Option and Incentive Plan) of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant.

Such Annual Award shall expire ten years from the date of grant, and shall have a per share exercise price equal to the Fair Market Value (as defined in the Company’s 2019 Stock Option and Incentive Plan) of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant.
Each Initial Award and Annual Award will become immediately vested and exercisable upon a Sale Event (as defined in the Company’s 2019 Stock Option and Incentive Plan).
