Section 5 Corporate Governance and Management
On June 11, 2012 at the annual meeting of stockholders, the stockholders of DaVita Inc. (DaVita) approved an amendment (the Amendment) to the DaVita Inc. 2011 Incentive Award Plan (the 2011 Plan), which was approved by DaVitas Board of Directors on April 24, 2012, subject to stockholder approval. The Amendment to the 2011 Plan increases the number of shares of common stock available for issuance under the Plan by 4,500,000 and, for Full Value Awards granted after June 11, 2012, changes the amount by which share reserves under the 2011 Plan are reduced by Full Value Awards to 3.5 times from 3.0 times the number of shares subject to the award. For this purpose, a Full Value Award means any award granted under the 2011 Plan other than a stock option or stock appreciation right.
The 2011 Plan authorizes the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (or, if the Board of Directors determines, another committee of the Board of Directors) to provide equity-based compensation in the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock units, restricted stock, performance-based awards, dividend equivalents, stock payments, deferred stock unit awards and deferred stock awards structured by the Compensation Committee within parameters set forth in the 2011 Plan, for the purpose of providing DaVitas directors, employees and consultants with equity compensation, incentives and rewards for performance. After giving effect to the Amendment, the maximum number of shares of DaVita common stock that may be issued under the 2011 Plan is 38,678,338. If any shares subject to an award under the 2011 Plan that is not a Full Value Award are forfeited or expire or such award is settled for cash, then any shares subject to such award may, to the extent of such forfeiture, expiration or cash settlement, be used again for new grants under the 2011 Plan. To the extent that a Full Value Award is forfeited or expires or such award is settled for cash, the shares available under the 2011 Plan will be increased by 3.5 shares subject to such Full Value Award. However, any shares tendered or withheld to satisfy the grant or exercise price or tax withholding obligation pursuant to any award and any shares subject to a stock appreciation right that are not issued in connection with the stock settlement of the stock appreciation right on its exercise may not be used again for new grants.
The Board of Directors may terminate, amend or modify the 2011 Plan at any time; however, except to the extent permitted by the 2011 Plan in connection with certain changes in capital structure, stockholder approval must be obtained for any amendment to (i) increase the number of shares available under the 2011 Plan, (ii) reduce the per share exercise price of the shares subject to any option or stock appreciation right below the per share exercise price as of the date the option or stock appreciation right was granted, and (iii) cancel any option or stock appreciation right in exchange for cash or another award when the option or stock appreciation right price per share exceeds the fair market value of the underlying shares, except with respect to any Substitute Award.
The foregoing summary description of the 2011 Plan is qualified in its entirety by reference to the actual terms of the 2011 Plan attached as Appendix A to DaVitas Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 27, 2012.
