Such options are Incentive Stock Options within the meaning of the 2012 Plan. The price at which the options shall be exercisable of $6.23 per share is the Fair Market Value (as determined under the 2012 Plan) per share of the Companys common stock on the date of grant. The options shall vest and become exercisable as to 25% of the total number of shares of the Companys common stock subject to the option on October 20, 2017, and 1/48th of the total number of shares of the Companys common stock subject to the option monthly thereafter, subject to Ms. Kanayas continued service relationship with the Company on each such vesting date, with such options subject to accelerated vesting as provided in Ms. Kanayas employment agreement with the Company.

The Company has granted such RSUs in consideration for Ms. Kanayas service rendered to and received by the Company, on or before the date of grant, for which the Companys Compensation Committee determined that Ms. Kanaya has not been fully compensated and that the value of such service received by the Company exceeds the aggregate par value of such shares. The RSUs shall vest in three equal installments on each of October 20, 2017, 2018 and 2019, subject to Ms. Kanayas continued service relationship with the Company on each such vesting date, with such RSUs subject to accelerated vesting as provided in Ms. Kanayas employment agreement with the Company.
