The annual award was granted in the following proportions:
60% granted in performance-based shares, which vest based on the achievement of a pre-established tangible book value goal at the end of a three-year performance period (e.g., 2018 – 2020). Participants may earn zero to 150% of their targeted award.
40% granted in time-vested restricted stock, which vests 50% on the second anniversary of the grant date and the remaining 50% on the third anniversary.
