Item 5. Other Events and Required FD Disclosure
In the registrants proxy statement mailed to stockholders on or about December 19, 2003, the registrant requested that stockholders approve the adoption of a new stock incentive plan for employees, officers, directors and other key personnel (including consultants and advisors) of the registrant (the 2004 Plan) at the registrants annual meeting of stockholders on January 15, 2004 (the Meeting). If approved by the stockholders at the Meeting, the 2004 Plan is scheduled to take effect on June 2, 2004, one day after the expiration of the registrants current stock incentive plan (the 1998 Plan).
Subject to stockholder approval of the 2004 Plan at the Meeting, the registrant has agreed that any awards issued under the 1998 Plan, from the date of the Meeting until the expiration of the 1998 Plan, will be deducted from the number of shares available to be issued under the 2004 Plan. Without any deduction, the number of shares anticipated to be available for issuance under the 2004 Plan is 3,000,000 (subject to the terms of the plan).
From October 1, 2003 through December 31, 2003, the registrant issued options for 382,500 shares of its common stock under the 1998 Plan. In addition, the registrant has committed to
issue options for 37,500 shares on or after January 5, 2003 under the 1998 Plan. These amounts will not be deducted from the number of shares available under the 2004 Plan in any event.
As of December 31, 2003, the total outstanding stock options are 4,536,315. The weighted average exercise price is $9.19 and the weighted average remaining contractual life is 4.8 years.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
