Board Share Ownership Policy
All non-management members of our Board of Directors (the “Non-Employee Directors” and in the singular a “Non-Employee Director”) are subject to our share ownership policy (the “Policy”), which is designed to encourage the Non-Employee Directors to acquire and maintain a meaningful financial interest in the Company’s common stock over time.
The common stock ownership requirement for the Non-Employee Directors is based on a multiple of the annual base retainer paid in cash to the Non-Employee Directors for their service on the Board (the “Base Retainer”), not including additional fees paid to the Non-Employee Directors for service in specific leadership roles or for attendance at Board meetings. The common stock ownership requirement will be deemed to have been met once the total net realizable share value held by a Non-Employee Director exceeds the lesser of 25% of the total equity award value realized by the Non-Employee Director to date in excess of $100,000 and five times the annual Base Retainer paid to the Non-Employee Director.
