SEATTLE, Dec. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- RealNetworks, Inc. (Nasdaq: RNWK) today announced that on December 23, 2020, the Compensation Committee of the RealNetworks Board of Directors granted approximately 1.1 million restricted stock units, or RSUs, to one new employee under RealNetworks' 2020 Inducement Equity Plan.
The 2020 Inducement Equity Plan is used exclusively for the grant of equity awards to individuals who were not previously an employee or non-employee director of RealNetworks (or following a bona fide period of non-employment), as an inducement material to such individual's entering into employment with RealNetworks, pursuant to Rule 5635(c)(4) of the NASDAQ Listing Rules.
The RSUs are comprised of two awards, one representing a sign-on bonus and the other representing a new-hire equity award. The 135,005 shares underlying the RSUs representing a sign-on bonus was determined based on a value of $200,000 divided by the average price of the Company's common stock over the 30-calendar-day period ending August 3, 2020, and will fully vest and become exercisable on August 17, 2021. The new-hire equity award of 1.0 million RSUs will vest as to 40% on August 17, 2022, another 40% on August 17, 2024, and the remaining 20% on August 17, 2025, subject in all cases to the recipient remaining an employee of the Company through the applicable vesting date. The new-hire award is subject to accelerated vesting in the event of the attainment of certain pre-established objectives related to the trading price of the Company's common stock.
The equity awards are subject to the terms and conditions of the RealNetworks 2020 Inducement Equity Plan, and the terms and conditions of equity award agreements covering the grants.
