On June 17, 2013, the Compensation Committee (the "Committee") of the Board of Directors of Westell Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) granted non-qualified stock options (the "Option Grant") and performance stock units (the “PSU Grant” or "PSUs") under the 2004 Stock Incentive Plan ( the "Plan") to three individuals that were named in the Summary Compensation Table in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2012 annual meeting of stockholders, and to the Interim Chief Financial Officer, as follows:
(1) Effective June 17, 2013, Mr. Shaver's title changed from Senior Vice President and General Manager to Senior Vice President, Product Development.
The exercise price of the Option Grant is $2.425 per share (of the Company's Class A Common Stock), and the options will vest 25% per annum on the anniversary of the grant date, based upon continued employment. A copy of the form of award relating to the Option Grant is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
The PSU Grant is designed to provide certain employees the opportunity to earn shares of the Company's Class A Common Stock based upon the satisfaction of pre-established Company performance goals and continued employment. The number of PSUs earned, if any, can range between 0% to 200% of the target amount reported in the table above, depending on actual Company performance for fiscal years 2014 through 2017 (the "Performance Period"). Following the close of each fiscal year in the Performance Period, the Committee will determine if any PSUs have been earned for that fiscal year on the "Certification Date," which is the date the Company's audited financial statements for the previous fiscal year are accepted by the Audit Committee. Any PSUs earned vest in annual increments during the Performance Period. Upon vesting, the PSUs convert into shares of Class A Common Stock of the Company on a one-for-one basis. A copy of the form of award relating to the PSU Grant is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
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.
