Summary of the 2009 Equity Plan
Set forth below is a summary of the principal features of the 2009 Equity Plan. The summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the 2009 Equity Plan, which is attached as Appendix A to this Proxy Statement.
Administration and Delegation.  The Compensation Committee will have the responsibility, in its sole discretion, to control, operate, manage and administer the 2009 Equity Plan in accordance with its terms. The Compensation Committee may delegate in writing such administrative duties as it may deem advisable to one or more of its members or to one or more agents. All determinations and interpretations by the Compensation Committee shall be binding and conclusive on the participants.
Eligibility.  The 2009 Equity Plan authorizes the Compensation Committee to make awards to employees and to non-employee directors of the Company. The number of options and other awards, if any, that an individual will be entitled to receive under the 2009 Equity Plan will be at the discretion of the Compensation Committee and therefore cannot be determined in advance.
Authorized Shares.  The 2009 Equity Plan authorizes the issuance of a maximum of 500,000 shares of Common Stock, subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain events as described below. No single participant may receive awards of more than 40,000 shares of Common Stock in any calendar year.
Adjustments to Awards.  The 2009 Equity Plan provides that if there is a change in the Common Stock, through merger, consolidation, reorganization, recapitalization, stock dividend, stock split, split-up, spin-off, combination of shares, exchange of shares, dividend in kind or other similar change in capital structure, or distribution (other than normal cash dividends) to stockholders of the Company, an adjustment shall be made to each outstanding award so that the value of each award immediately after the change is not significantly diluted or enhanced. Subject to certain restrictions, the Compensation Committee may make adjustments to the number and kind of shares subject to awards and the exercise price of stock options and may make other modifications to awards to address changes in the Common Stock or for other equitable purposes or in response to unusual events affecting the Company or changes in applicable laws or accounting principles.
