On May 24, 2018, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Blucora, Inc. (the “Company”) approved an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Blucora, Inc. 2016 Equity Inducement Plan (the “Inducement Plan”) in order to ensure a consistent share usage application with the Blucora, Inc. 2015 Incentive Plan, as amended and restated (the “2015 Incentive Plan”), and the Blucora, Inc. 2018 Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “2018 Plan”). The 2018 Plan was previously adopted by the Board, subject to approval of the Company’s stockholders, and is expected to be voted on at the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on June 7, 2018. If approved, the 2018 Plan will replace the 2015 Incentive Plan.
Pursuant to the Amendment, the Inducement Plan was amended to provide that the number of shares of the Company’s common stock available for issuance under the Inducement Plan shall be reduced by 2.0 shares for each share delivered in settlement of Awards (as defined in the Inducement Plan) other than Options (as defined in the Inducement Plan) or SARs (as defined in the Inducement Plan) and one share for each share delivered in settlement of Options or SARs. In addition, the Amendment provides that any shares of the Company’s common stock that become available for issuance under the Inducement Plan’s recycling features shall be added back to the Inducement Plan as 2.0 shares if such shares were subject to Awards other than Options or SARs and one share if such shares were subject to Options or SARs.
The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, a copy of which is filed hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
