Implementation of Omnibus Incentive Plan
Pursuant to the resolution approved by shareholders at the Meeting, Alvopetro has now implemented the Omnibus Incentive Plan. The Omnibus Incentive Plan replaces the Corporation's existing Option Plan and Incentive Share Plan (collectively, the "Predecessor Plans"). No further grants will be made under the Predecessor Plans. Alvopetro employees, consultants and directors are eligible to participate in and receive grants under the Omnibus Incentive Plan.
The Omnibus Incentive Plan is a "rolling" share-based compensation plan pursuant to which participants may be awarded options, Restricted Share Units ("RSUs"), Deferred Share Units ("DSUs") and Performance Share Units ("PSUs"). Under the Omnibus Incentive Plan, an aggregate of 10% of the common shares of the Company outstanding may be reserved for issuance under the Omnibus Incentive Plan and any other security-based compensation plans of Alvopetro, including the Predecessor Plans. There is a sublimit of 5% of the common shares outstanding being reserved for the issuance of RSUs, DSUs and PSUs under the Omnibus Incentive Plan.
Based on the current shares outstanding, a maximum of 3,410,251 of common shares may be reserved for issuance under the Omnibus Plan with a maximum sublimit of 1,705,125 common shares reserved for issuance of RSUs, DSUs and PSUs. As of the date hereof, no awards have been granted under the Omnibus Incentive Plan. Under the Predecessor Plans, 1,199,997 common shares are reserved for issuance pursuant to options already granted and outstanding pursuant to the Corporation's Option Plan and 563,165 Shares are reserved for issuance pursuant to RSUs and DSUs already granted and outstanding pursuant to the Corporation's Incentive Share Plan, resulting in a total of 1,763,162 common shares reserved for issuance under the Predecessor Plans, representing an aggregate 5.2% of the common shares outstanding.
