SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glu Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ: GLUU), a leading developer and publisher of mobile games, today announced that on May 14, 2019, its Compensation Committee awarded the following equity awards, in the aggregate, to four newly hired employees: (1) time-vesting stock option awards to purchase an aggregate of 105,361 shares of Glu’s common stock, (2) time-vesting restricted stock unit awards covering an aggregate of 13,500 shares of Glu’s common stock and (3) performance-based restricted stock unit awards covering an aggregate of 13,424 shares of Glu’s common stock, each pursuant to Glu’s 2018 Equity Inducement Plan.
The time-vesting stock options have ten-year terms, vest on a four-year schedule (25% of the underlying shares will vest on May 14, 2020 and 2.083% of the underlying shares will vest monthly thereafter) and have a per share exercise price equal to $8.63, which was the closing price of Glu’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on the May 14, 2019 grant date. The time-vesting restricted stock unit awards vest with respect to 25% of the underlying shares on May 15, 2020, with the remaining 75% of the underlying shares vesting in equal quarterly installments over the next three years on the same day of each third month (e.g., the next quarterly vesting date will be August 15, 2020, then November 15, 2020, etc.). The number of performance-based restricted stock units that will be earned, if any, will depend on the extent to which Glu achieves certain Adjusted EBITDA and bookings goals during 2019, with any earned performance-based restricted stock units vesting in full on May 15, 2020.
Glu’s Compensation Committee adopted the 2018 Equity Inducement Plan, which is a non-stockholder approved plan, to facilitate the granting of equity awards as an inducement material to new employees joining Glu. Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5635(c)(4) requires a public announcement of equity awards made under this type of plan.
