The 2003 Plan is administered by the Compensation Committee, consisting of at least two members of the Board of Directors who are independent directors as defined by Rule 4200(a)(14) of the National Association of Securities Dealers listing standards.
The administrator is authorized to determine the individuals who will receive Awards (the Participants), fix the number of shares that each Participant may purchase, to determine the exercise price of the awards, whether options are to be incentive stock options (ISOs) or non-qualified stock options (NSOs), and to set the terms and conditions of each option, including the period over which the Award becomes exercisable, and all other matters relating to the administration and operation of the 2003 Plan. The administrator is also authorized to suspend or discontinue the 2003 Plan or revise and amend it in any respect whatsoever; provided, however, that without approval of Advanced Energys stockholders no revision or amendment shall change the number of shares issuable, or effectively reduce the exercise price of any outstanding option under the 2003 Plan.
