Wendys Legacy Equity Plans
Four equity compensation plans of Wendys were acquired by the Company in connection with the completion of the merger with Wendys, which occurred on September 29, 2008. Those plans were the Wendys 2007 Stock Incentive Plan (the Wendys 2007 Plan), the Wendys 2003 Stock Incentive Plan (the Wendys 2003 Plan), the Wendys 1990 Stock Option Plan (the Wendys 1990 Plan) and the Wendys WeShare Stock Option Plan (the Wendys WeShare Plan), each as amended as of the merger date (collectively the Wendys Legacy Equity Plans). Each of the Wendys Legacy Equity Plans, other than the Wendys WeShare Plan, had been approved by shareholders of Wendys prior to the merger. Stock options and SARs can continue to be awarded under each of the Wendys Legacy Equity Plans, other than the Wendys WeShare Plan, and restricted shares, restricted share units, performance shares, performance units, dividend equivalent rights and unrestricted shares can continue to be be issued under the Wendys 2007 Plan and the Wendys 2003 Plan to officers and key employees of Wendys and its subsidiaries and affiliates. No further awards can be made under the Wendys WeShare Plan.
