NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- WW International, Inc. (NASDAQ: WW) announced that, in connection with the previously announced appointment of Sima Sistani as Chief Executive Officer, it has agreed to grant her an employment inducement equity award. As previously disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 24, 2022 (the "Form 8-K"), WW has agreed to grant Ms. Sistani initial equity awards on her first day of employment, which will include a grant of 500,000 nonqualified stock options with an exercise price per share equal to $30.00 and 500,000 nonqualified stock options with an exercise price per share equal to $50.00 (collectively, the "Inducement Options").
