NOTE 10 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY (DEFICIT)
Stock Option and Incentive Plan
In September 2000, our Board of Directors approved the Amended and Restated Stock Option and Incentive Plan (the "Option and Incentive Plan"). As of June 30, 2017, 30,202,692 shares of common stock are reserved for future issuance under the Option and Incentive Plan to our eligible employees, consultants and directors. Of the shares available for future issuance, 1,768,322 are available for issuance as incentive stock options. The remaining shares can be used for other awards. In addition, the Option and Incentive Plan provides for the reservation of additional authorized shares on any given day in an amount equal to the difference between:
However, in no event shall the number of additional authorized shares determined pursuant to this formula exceed, when added to the number of shares of common stock outstanding and reserved for issuance under the Option and Incentive Plan other than pursuant to this formula, under the ESPP and upon conversion or exercise of outstanding warrants or convertible securities, the total number of shares of common stock authorized for issuance under our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation.
The Option and Incentive Plan provides for awards of both non-statutory stock options and incentive stock options within the meaning of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, restricted stock and other incentive awards and rights to purchase shares of our common stock.
The Option and Incentive Plan is administered by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors, which has the authority to select the individuals to whom awards will be granted, the number of shares, vesting terms, exercise price and term of each option grant. Generally, options have a four-year annual vesting term, an exercise price equal to the market value of the underlying shares at the grant date and a ten-year life from the date of grant.
Associated with our previously outstanding long-term debt arrangements with Deerfield Capital, which have been paid in full, we issued warrants to Deerfield to purchase 6,000,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $3.65 and warrants to purchase 6,000,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $4.19. The warrants contained the same terms, except for the lower per share exercise price. We valued the warrants at issuance based on a Black-Scholes option pricing model and then allocated a portion of the proceeds under the debt to the warrants based upon their relative fair values. The warrants were recorded in stockholders' deficit with the offset to debt discount. The debt discount was amortized using the effective interest method and recorded as interest expense in the accompanying statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss) from the respective draw dates until June 10, 2013, when the Deerfield credit facilities were repaid and the recognition of the remaining debt discount was accelerated. The warrants were sold by Deerfield Capital to an unrelated third party during the fiscal year 2015. During fiscal year 2016, 3,996,298 warrants with an exercise price of $3.65 were exercised on a cashless basis for approximately 223 thousand common shares. Additionally, approximately 12 thousand warrants with an exercise price of $3.65 were exercised for approximately 12 thousand common shares. All of the remaining warrants expired on June 30, 2016.
