CEO Equity Grants
At a meeting held on February 24, 2014, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of ICU Medical, Inc. ("the "Company") awarded Vivek Jain an employment inducement option to purchase 182,366 shares of the Company's common stock with an exercise price per share of $58.79 (the "Inducement Option") and an employment inducement grant of restricted stock units with respect to 68,039 shares of the Company's common stock ("Inducement RSUs" and, together with the Inducement Option, the "Inducement Grants"). The Inducement Grants were made outside of the Company's 2011 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended from time to time (the "2011 Stock Incentive Plan"), as a material inducement to the decision by Mr. Vivek to accept employment as Chief Executive Officer of the Company and are intended to qualify as employment inducement grants under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5635(c)(4). The Compensation Committee also awarded Mr. Jain an option to purchase 500,000 shares of the Company's common stock with an exercise price per share of $58.79 (the "Incentive Option") under the 2011 Stock Incentive Plan. The Inducement Grants and the Incentive Option were approved by the Compensation Committee, which is comprised solely of independent directors.
All of the shares subject to the Inducement Option and 134,759 of the shares subject to the Incentive Option will vest ratably during the period of employment as to twenty-five percent (25%) of the shares subject thereto on each annual anniversary of Mr. Jain's employment commencement date (the "Employment Commencement Date") and, to the extent vested, such shares will become exercisable based on achievement of milestones related to the price of the Company's common stock during the period of employment and the term of the Inducement Option. Specifically, fifty percent (50%) of the vested shares subject to each grant will become exercisable if, during the term of the Inducement Option or the Incentive Option, as applicable (the "Performance-Based Options"), the closing price of the Company's common stock is equal to or more than one-hundred and twenty-five percent (125%) of the exercise price per share of the Performance-Based Options for thirty (30) consecutive trading days. The remaining fifty percent (50%) of the vested shares subject to each grant will become exercisable if, during the term of the Performance-Based Options, the closing price of the Common Stock is equal to or more than one-hundred and fifty percent (150%) of the exercise price per share for thirty (30) consecutive trading days.
In addition, 365,241 of the shares subject to the Incentive Option (the "Time-Based Option Shares") will vest during the period of employment as to twenty-five percent (25%) of the shares subject thereto on the one (1) year anniversary of the Employment Commencement Date and as to 1/48th of the shares subject thereto on each monthly anniversary thereafter. In the event that Mr. Jain's employment terminates as a result termination by the Company without "cause" (as defined in Mr. Jain's Employment Agreement with the Company, dated February 7, 2014, as amended (the "Employment Agreement")), by Mr. Jain for "good reason" (as defined in the Employment Agreement), "disability" (as defined in the Employment Agreement) or death, subject to delivery and non-revocation of a general release of claims in favor of the Company, one hundred percent (100%) of the Time-Based Incentive Shares will vest.
The Inducement RSUs will vest ratably in equal annual increments over a three
(3) year period commencing on the Employment Commencement Date. In the event that Mr. Jain's employment terminates as a result termination by the Company without "cause" (as defined in the Employment


Agreement), by Mr. Jain for "good reason" (as defined in the Employment Agreement), "disability" (as defined in the Employment Agreement) or death, subject to delivery and non-revocation of a general release of claims in favor of the Company, one hundred percent (100%) of the shares subject to the Inducement RSUs will vest.
In the event of a "change in control" (as defined in the Employment Agreement) during the period of employment, Mr. Jain will vest in one hundred percent (100%) of the shares subject to the Inducement Grants and the Incentive Option, and all performance goals or other vesting criteria will be deemed achieved at target levels.
The Company's press release regarding the Inducement Grants and the Incentive Option was issued on February 26, 2014 and is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K.
