2017 Equity Incentive Plan
In May 2017, the Board and the Company’s stockholders approved the 2017 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2017 Plan”), which became effective in connection with the IPO. The 2017 Plan provides for the issuance of stock options, restricted stock units and other awards to employees, directors and consultants of the Company. A total of 2,413,659 shares of the Company’s common stock were initially reserved for issuance under the 2017 Plan, which is the sum of (1) 900,000 shares, (2) the number of shares reserved for issuance under the 2005 Plan at the time the 2017 Plan became effective and (3) shares subject to stock options or other stock awards under the 2005 Plan that would have otherwise been returned to the 2005 Plan (up to a maximum of 1,314,752 shares). Under an “evergreen” provision, the number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the 2017 Plan will automatically increase on January 1 of each year, beginning on January 1, 2018 and ending on and including January 1, 2027, by of 5% of the total number of shares of our capital stock outstanding on December 31 of the preceding calendar year or a lesser number of shares determined by our Board of Directors. In accordance with the evergreen provision, the number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance under our 2017 Plan was automatically increased on January 1, 2018 by 491,356 shares, which was equal to 5% of the total number of shares of capital stock outstanding on December 31, 2017.
2005 Stock Plan
In February 2005, the Company adopted the 2005 Stock Plan, as amended in January 2010 and November 2012 (the “2005 Plan”). Under the 2005 Plan provisions, the Company was authorized to grant incentive stock options, non-qualified stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock units, and shares of restricted stock.
Following the effectiveness of the 2017 Plan in connection with the IPO, no further grants will be made under the 2005 Plan.
A summary of option activities under the 2005 Plan and 2017 Plan during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 is as follows:
During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company granted executive management restricted stock unit (“RSU”) awards totaling 92,883 shares of common stock, with vesting terms of 35% upon the first anniversary and 21.667% on each of the three subsequent anniversaries. The weighted average fair value of $17.87 per unit was calculated using the closing stock price on the grant dates.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company granted directors RSU awards totaling 17,881 shares of common stock. The fair value of $28.45 per unit was calculated using the closing price on the grant date.
Our 2017 Plan include stock options, restricted stock units and other stock awards. The number of shares available for grant under these plans was 1,263,076 as of September 30, 2018.
2017 Employee Stock Purchase Plan
In May 2017, the Board and the Company’s stockholders adopted the 2017 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“2017 ESPP”), which became effective in connection with the Company’s IPO. The 2017 ESPP allows eligible employees to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock in an offering at a discount of the then-current trading price, up to the lesser of (1) 85% of the fair market value of the common stock on the first day of the IPO or (2) 85% of the fair market value of the common stock on the purchase date. The 2017 ESPP permits the maximum discounted purchase price permitted under U.S. tax rules, including a “lookback.”
The 2017 ESPP initial offering period runs for approximately 24 months in length, and contains four 6-month purchase periods. An employee’s purchase rights terminate immediately upon termination of employment or other withdrawal from the 2017 ESPP. No participant will have the right to purchase shares of common stock in an amount that has a fair market value of more than $25,000 determined as of the first day of the applicable purchase period, for each calendar year.
There are 200,000 shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the 2017 ESPP. In addition, the 2017 ESPP contains an “evergreen” provision which provides for an automatic annual share increase on January 1 of each year, in an amount equal to the lesser of (1) 2% of the total number of shares of common stock outstanding on December 31st of the preceding calendar year, (2) 150,000 shares or (3) such number of shares as determined by the Board. In accordance with the evergreen provision, the number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance under our 2017 ESPP was automatically increased on January 1, 2018 by 150,000 shares.
The Company accounts for employee stock purchases made under its 2017 ESPP using the estimate grant date fair value of accounting in accordance with ASC 718, Stock Compensation. The Company values ESPP shares using the Black-Scholes model.
There were 43,624 shares issued under the 2017 ESPP during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.
