On December 1, 2017, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Heska Corporation (the “Company”) authorized and approved, based in part upon the historical performance of Mr. Kevin S. Wilson, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and President, an immediate increase to Mr. Wilson’s annual salary to $600,000 per year and the issuance to Mr.Wilson of 45,000 restricted shares of the Company’s Public Common Stock under the Company’s 1997 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended, which shares are subject to the restrictions and other terms set forth in a Restricted Stock Grant Agreement between the Company and Mr. Wilson attached hereto exhibit 99.1 (the “Agreement”) and in substantially the form previously filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The restricted shares are subject to forfeiture unless they vest as provided in the Agreement.
As provided in the Agreement, 16,875 of the restricted shares are subject to possible market price vesting through December 1, 2024 as follows: 5,625 of such shares shall vest each time the Company’s stock price per share first averages over a 20 trading day period $110 per share, $125 per share and $150 per share. If any of such vesting events is achieved prior to the first anniversary of the grant date, then such vesting event will be deemed to be the first anniversary of the grant date. Also as provided in the Agreement, 28,125 of the restricted shares are subject to possible vesting in three instalments of 9,375 shares each if the Company achieves targeted operating income results of $25 million, $30 million and $35 million through the Company’s fiscal years ending December 31, 2024, with vesting to occur no earlier than the later of (i) three years following the achievement of such target or (ii) a date occurring in calendar year 2022. Any of the shares that vest to the Agreement are subject to forfeiture generally if within 3 years thereafter the Company issues a restatement of its audited financial statements. The restricted shares may also vest in connection with a change in control of the company, upon the occurrence of Mr. Wilson’s death or defined disability, or termination of employment by the Company without cause or by Mr. Wilson for good reason. The foregoing description of the terms of the arrangement is a summary only and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement filed herewith and incorporated by reference herein. Furthermore, the vesting targets included in the Agreement should not under any circumstances be construed for any purpose as an expectation by the Company or its management of its future operating results or potential stock prices.
