Item 5.02.  Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

(e)  Approval of an Amendment to the Company’s 2006 Equity Incentive Plan.

 

As described below in Item 5.07, on June 2, 2010, at the Company’s 2010 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”), the Company’s stockholders approved an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the  Company’s 2006 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), which previously had been adopted by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), subject to stockholder approval. The Amendment modifies the evergreen provision of the Plan to provide that the number of shares of the Company’s common stock that may be issued under the Plan shall, beginning on January 1, 2010, be increased on the first day of each calendar year by the number of shares equal to the lesser of (i) 5.0% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock as of January 1 of each year and (ii) 1,200,000 shares.  Previously, the Plan provided that the annual increase would equal the lesser of (i) 500,000 shares and (ii) such lesser number as the Board may approve.

 

Under the Plan, the Company continues to be able to grant stock options, stock appreciation rights, performance units, restricted stock, restricted stock units and shares of common stock to employees, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, members of our Board, consultants and advisors of the Company and its affiliates. The Company plans to continue to grant options or other awards to such persons in connection with hirings, appointments, and for motivation and retention purposes as provided in the Plan.

 

A more detailed summary of the material terms of the Plan, as amended and restated (the “Amended and Restated Plan”), appears on pages 10 and A-1 to A-8 of the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A (the “Proxy Statement”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 30, 2010. That summary and description of the Amended and Restated Plan are incorporated herein by reference and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended and Restated Plan, which is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.

On June 2, 2010, the Company held its 2010 Annual Meeting at the Company’s principal executive office located at 51 Discovery, Suite 150, Irvine, California 92618.
