Plan summary and description
Under the Company’s 2019 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended, (the “2019 Plan”), non-transferable options to purchase SVS and restricted SVS of the Company may be issued to directors, officers, employees, or consultants of the Company. The 2019 Plan authorizes the issuance of up to 15% (plus an additional 2% inducements for hiring employees and senior management) of the number of outstanding shares of common stock (of all classes) of the Company (the “Share Reserve”).

The stock options issued by the Company are options to purchase SVS of the Company. All stock options issued have been issued to directors and employees under the Company’s 2019 Plan. Such options generally expire in ten years from the date of grant and generally vest ratably over three years from the grant date. The options generally may be net share settled. The following table summarizes the status of stock options and related transactions:
The fair value of the stock options granted was determined using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. The following assumptions were used for the calculation at date of grant:
The Company grants restricted SVS to independent directors, management, former owners of acquired businesses or assets, and to consultants and other employees. The restricted SVS are included in the issued and outstanding SVS, and the fair value of the restricted stock granted was estimated based on the SVS price at grant date.

Generally, restricted stock awards will vest either one-third on each anniversary of service from the vesting start date or will be fully vested on the completion of one year of full service from the vesting start date, depending on the award.
