Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Submission of Matters to a Vot


Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

(e)

At the annual meeting of stockholders of Akamai Technologies, Inc. (the "Company" or "Akamai") held on May 15, 2013 (the "Annual Meeting"), the Company's stockholders approved the Akamai Technologies, Inc. 2013 Stock Incentive Plan (the "2013 Plan"); the 2013 Plan had previously been adopted by the Company's Board of Directors subject to stockholder approval.

The following brief description of the 2013 Plan is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the plan, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference:

The 2013 Plan allows for the issuance of incentive stock options, non-statutory stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, other stock-based awards and cash-based awards. Subject to adjustment in the event of stock splits, stock dividends or similar events, awards may be made under the 2013 Plan for the sum of (i) up to 8,000,000 shares of our common stock; (ii) the number of shares of common stock that were available for grant under the Akamai Technologies, Inc. 2009 Stock Incentive Plan immediately prior to stockholder approval of the 2013 Plan; and (iii) any shares of common stock subject to awards that are currently outstanding under existing equity incentive plans that are terminated, cancelled, surrendered or forfeited.

Employees, officers, directors, consultants and advisors of the Company and its subsidiaries are eligible to be granted awards under the 2013 Plan. Under present law, however, incentive stock options may only be granted to employees of the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries. The 2013 Plan is administered by the Company's Board of Directors. Under the terms of the 2013 Plan, the Board of Directors may delegate authority under the 2013 Plan to one or more committees or subcommittees of the board of directors. The Board of Directors has authorized the Compensation Committee (the "Committee") to administer certain aspects of the 2013 Plan, including the granting of awards to executive officers. In addition, as permitted by the terms of the 2013 Plan, the Board of Directors has delegated to the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, as a committee of one director, the authority to grant equity awards to non-executive employees in accordance with guidelines established by the Committee.

The Board of Directors or the Committee may modify awards granted to participants who are foreign nationals or employed outside the United States or establish sub plans or procedures under the 2013 Plan to recognize differences in laws, rules, regulations or customs of such foreign jurisdictions with respect to tax, securities, currency, employee benefit or other matters.
