Equity Compensation The equity compensation set forth below will be granted under the NeoPhotonics Corporation 2020 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). All stock options granted under this policy will be non- statutory stock options, with an exercise price per share equal to 100% of the Fair Market Value (as defined in the Plan) of the underlying NeoPhotonics common stock on the date of grant, and a term of ten (10) years from the date of grant (subject to earlier termination in connection with a termination of service as provided in the Plan). The Board and the Compensation Committee 1. Annual Grants: On the date of each NeoPhotonics annual stockholders’ meeting (commencing with the 2020 annual meeting), each Director will be automatically, and without further action by the Board, granted: (A) a stock option for a number of shares of common stock with a target value equal to $47,000, rounded down for any partial share. Such option will vest in twelve (12) equal monthly installments from the date of grant, such that the option is fully vested on the one-year anniversary of the date of grant*, subject to the Director’s Continuous Service (as defined in the Plan). (B) Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) covering a number of shares of common stock equal to (i) $47,000 divided by (ii) the Fair Market Value of a share of NeoPhotonics common stock on the date of grant*, rounded down for any partial share. Such RSUs will vest on the one-year anniversary of the date of grant, subject to the Director’s Continuous Service (as defined in the Plan). * The stock options and RSUs will be deemed fully-vested if the Director’s term concludes at the following year’s regular annual stockholders’ meeting, even if such meeting occurs less than 12 months from the previous meeting. Target fair value for the above stock option grants will be calculated using a Black-Scholes model and based on a 30 trading day trading average (ending the day before the grant date).
