First Amendment to the P.F. Chang's China Bistro, Inc. Amended and Restated 2006 Equity Incentive Plan
At the Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on April 18, 2012, the stockholders of P.F. Chang's China Bistro, Inc. (the "Company") approved the First Amendment to the Company's Amended and Restated 2006 Equity Incentive Plan (the "First Amendment") to increase the number of shares to be reserved and authorized for issuance under the Company's Amended and Restated 2006 Equity Incentive Plan (the "Equity Incentive Plan") by 1,760,000 shares to 3,510,000 shares, and to extend the term of the Equity Incentive Plan for an additional ten years from the date the First Amendment was approved by the stockholders.
Additionally, upon stockholder approval of the First Amendment, the Company's Amended and Restated 1998 Stock Option Plan and 1999 Nonstatutory Stock Option Plan were amended such that no further awards may be granted under either of these two plans.
The First Amendment is described in the Company's 2012 proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on April 18, 2012. This summary does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the First Amendment, filed herewith as Exhibit 10.42 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
Effective as of April 18, 2012, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of the Company authorized the grant of stock options ("Stock Options"), performance-based restricted stock units (“PBRSUs”), and restricted stock units (“RSUs”) under the Equity Incentive Plan to the following executive officers:
The awards have a grant date of April 18, 2012 (the “Grant Date”) and will vest as follows. The Stock Options will become 100% exercisable on the third anniversary of the Grant Date, so long as the optionee's service is continuous from the Grant Date through the vesting date. The exercise price of the Stock Options was set at the closing price of the Company's common stock on the date of grant as $39.51 per share. The PBRSUs will fully vest on the last day of the performance period, commencing on January 2, 2012 and ending on December 28, 2014, so long as the award recipient's service is continuous from the Grant Date through the end of the performance period. The number of shares issuable upon vesting of the PBRSUs is determined based on a specified percentage corresponding with the difference between the total shareholder return of the Company versus a comparator group. The RSUs will fully vest on the third anniversary of the Grant Date, so long as (1) the Company's earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") meets a certain target for the fiscal year ending December 30, 2012, and (2) the award recipient's service is continuous from the Grant Date through the vesting date.
The foregoing provides only a brief description of the terms and conditions of the PBRSUs, the RSUs and the Stock Options and does not purport to be a complete description of the rights and obligations of the parties thereunder and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Form of PBRSU, Form of RSU and Form of Stock Option and copies of which are attached as Exhibits 10.43, 10.44 and 10.45, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
