(d)  Effective September 6, 2019, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Accuray Incorporated (“Company”) appointed Mr. James M. Hindman as a Class III member of the Company’s Board and as a member of the Audit Committee of the Board in order to fill a newly created vacancy on the Board.  Mr. Hindman is expected to stand for re-election at Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, when his Class III term will expire.

In connection with his appointment, Mr. Hindman will receive the same cash and equity compensation for service on the Board and Board committees as is currently paid to all other non-employee Board members of the Company. Cash compensation is as follows: (1) for Board service, an annual cash retainer of $52,500, and (2) additional annual fees of $10,000 for service as a member of the Audit Committee.

Mr. Hindman’s equity compensation is as follows: (1) in connection with his initial appointment to the Board, a restricted stock unit (“RSU”) grant for that number of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to $150,000 divided by the fair market value of one share of common stock on the grant date, prorated for the months of service between Mr. Hindman’s appointment on the Board and the Company’s next Annual Meeting of Stockholders, with full vesting on the one-year anniversary of the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, subject to Mr. Hindman’s continued service (the “Initial RSU Grant”); and (2) annually, on the last day of the month in which the Company’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders is held, an RSU grant for the number of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to $150,000 divided by the fair market value of one share of common stock on the grant date, with full vesting on the one-year anniversary of the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to which the grant relates, subject to Mr. Hindman’s continued service (the “Annual RSU Grant”). Vesting of all RSUs subject to the Initial RSU Grant and any Annual RSU Grant thereafter accelerate in full in the event of a change in control of the Company.

There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Hindman and the Company to which Mr. Hindman was appointed as a director. In addition, there are no related party transactions involving the Company and Mr. Hindman that are reportable to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).
