WHEREAS, Invacare Corporation (the “Company”) adopted the 2018 Equity Plan, approved by the Company’s shareholders on May 17, 2018, which was subsequently amended by Amendment No. 1 to the 2018 Equity Plan, approved by the Company shareholders on May 16, 2019, and Amendment No 2., approved by the Company shareholders on May 21, 2020, under which the maximum number of Shares cumulatively available for issuance under the 2018 Plan (referred to in the 2018 Equity Plan as the “Aggregate Share Limit”) is the sum of: (i) 6,200,000 Shares; plus (ii) any shares available for issuance under the 2013 Equity Plan at the time of approval of the 2018 Equity Plan by the Company’s shareholders; and (iii) any Shares covered by an award under the 2018 Equity Plan, the 2013 Equity Plan or the 2003 Equity Plan that are forfeited or remain unpurchased or undistributed upon termination or expiration of the award;
WHEREAS, based on the recommendation of the Compensation and Management Development Committee of the Board (the “Compensation Committee”), the Board has determined that it is desirable to increase the Aggregate Share Limit by 2,500,000 Shares in order to allow more Shares to be available for issuance under the 2018 Equity Plan pursuant to awards thereunder, and increase the related limit on the total number of Shares issuable upon the exercise of Incentive Stock Options by the same amount;
