Stock-based compensation awards:
On January 18, 2012, drawing upon data provided by, and discussed with, Pay Governance, LLC in December, 2011, the Compensation Committee (the Committee) of the Board of Directors of Universal Health Services, Inc. (the Company) approved the issuance of 54,127 restricted shares of our Class B Common Stock (market value of $2.0 million on the date of grant) to Mr. Alan B. Miller, our Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer. Pursuant to the terms of the award, which was granted pursuant to the Second Amended and Restated 2001 Employees Restricted Stock Purchase Plan, these shares are scheduled to vest as follows: 50% on the first anniversary date of the award; 25% on the second anniversary date of the award, and; 25% on the third anniversary date of the award.
In addition, in connection with the Committees annual awards to executive officers and other employees of the Company, and consistent with prior year awards, Mr. Miller also received options to purchase 590,000 shares of our Class B Common Stock pursuant to the Second Amended and Restated 2005 Stock Incentive Plan. These options, which were granted at an exercise price of $36.95 per share representing the closing price of our Class B Common Stock on the date of grant, are scheduled to vest ratably on each of the first, second, third and fourth anniversary dates of the award.
In determining the stock-based incentive awards, the Committee reviewed data prepared by Pay Governance LLC which provided compensation data for comparable positions in other companies within the healthcare industry as well as certain other similar-sized companies in other industries. The review included base salary, short-term cash incentive compensation and long-term, stock-based compensation. This data was considered in determining Mr. Millers 2012 compensation which primarily includes base salary, cash incentive compensation (based upon the achievement of specific bonus formula) and stock-based compensation including stock options and restricted stock.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
