2016 and 2021 Stock Plans
In November 2016, the Company’s Board of Directors adopted the 2016 Stock Option and Grant Plan (“2016 Plan”) under which officers, employees, directors, consultants and other key persons of the Company or its affiliates may be granted incentive stock options, nonstatutory stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock and restricted stock units. On August 10, 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors amended the 2016 Plan to provide that no new awards could be granted under the 2016 Plan.
On August 10, 2021, the Company adopted the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan (“2021 Plan”). Under the 2021 Plan, the Company can grant incentive stock options, nonstatutory stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units and performance awards to employees, directors and consultants. The number of shares available for issuance under the 2021 Plan will be increased on the first day of each fiscal year, beginning on January 1, 2022, in an amount equal to the lesser of (i) a number of shares equal to four percent (4%) of the total number of shares of all classes of common stock of the Company outstanding on the last day of the immediately preceding fiscal year, or (ii) such number of shares determined by the Company’s Board of Directors. On January 1, 2022, the number of shares available for issuance under 2021 plan increased by 24,167,201 shares.
On August 10, 2021, the Company adopted the 2021 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“2021 ESPP”). Under the 2021 ESPP, participating employees may be offered the option to purchase shares of the Company’s Common Stock at a purchase price which equals 85% of the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the enrollment date or on the exercise date, whichever is lower. The number of shares of common stock available for issuance under the 2021 ESPP will be increased on the first day of each fiscal year beginning on January 1, 2022, in an amount equal to the lesser of (i) a number of shares of common stock equal to half percent (0.5%) of the total number of shares of all classes of common stock of the Company on the last day of the immediately preceding fiscal year, or (ii) such number of shares determined by the Company’s Board of Directors. On January 1, 2022, the number of shares available for issuance under 2021 ESPP increased by 3,020,900 shares. As of September 30, 2022, the Company has not yet implemented the 2021 ESPP and no shares have been issued under the 2021 ESPP.
Restricted Stock Units
The summary of RSU activity is as follows (in thousands, except per share data):
On December 16, 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a performance-based bonus program under which RSUs will be awarded in connection with the achievement of specified goals to be achieved in 2022 ("2022 Bonus Plan"). The RSU awards will be granted when the achievement of each goal is approved by the Company’s Board of Directors or Compensation Committee, and the RSUs will vest on January 1, 2023 provided the employee or consultant continues to be a service provider on that date. The target bonus opportunity is equal to 30% of the employee’s base salary as of the applicable grant date unless otherwise established by the Company’s Compensation Committee, with stretch bonus goals that are one-third higher than the target amounts.
The Company recorded stock-based compensation expense of $0.3 million and $15.1 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively, in relation to 2022 Bonus Plan. The Company will consider the probability of achieving of each of the performance goals at the end of each reporting period and will recognize expense over the requisite period when achievement of the goal is determined to be probable, and will adjust the expense if the probability of achieving the goal later changes. In accordance with ASC 718 Compensation - Stock Compensation, awards under 2022 Bonus Plan are classified as a liability until such time that the respective milestones have been met, at which point the liability is reclassified to equity. If it is determined that the milestone cannot be met, the liability will be reversed.
Shares subject to repurchase
The Company allows certain option holders to exercise unvested options to purchase shares of common stock. Common shares received from such early exercises are subject to a right of repurchase at the original issuance price. The Company’s repurchase right with respect to these shares lapses as the shares vest. These awards are typically subject to a vesting period of six years. As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, 4,675,479 and 6,918,483 shares, respectively, were subject to repurchase at a weighted average price of $0.10 per share and $0.10 per share, respectively, and $0.5 million and $0.7 million, respectively, was recorded within the stock repurchase liability in early exercised stock option liabilities on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.
