On July 31, 2017, the independent members of the Board of Directors approved grants of two options (each, an “Option”) to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $.01 per share (the “Common Stock”) to Douglas J. Malone, the Company’s Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer to the Company’s Amended and Restated 2011 Incentive Stock Plan (the “Plan”).

Both Options: (i) are not intended to qualify as an “incentive stock option” as that term is defined in Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended; (ii) have an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the Company’s Common Stock on the date of grant of the Option; (iii) have a term of 10 years from the date of grant of the Option; and (iv) have 15,000 shares of Common Stock subject to the Option.

With respect to one Option, fifty percent (50%) of the shares of Common Stock subject to the Option shall become vested and exercisable on the second year anniversary of the date of grant of the Option and the remaining shares of Common Stock subject to the Option shall become vested and exercisable on the third year anniversary of the date of grant of the Option.

With respect to the second Option, the shares of Common Stock subject to the Option shall become vested and exercisable upon the completion of certain milestones associated with the economic performance of the Company over a three year period (beginning with the date of grant of the Option), as mutually agreed upon by the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors and Mr. Malone.

The foregoing is only a brief description of the material terms of the Options and does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Plan and the option agreements evidencing the Options (the “Option Agreements”). Copies of the Option Agreements and the Plan are featured as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and the full text of each of the Option Agreements and the Plan are incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02.
