In March 2017, the Company adopted the 2017 Stock Option / Stock Issuance Plan (the “Plan”). The Plan provides incentives to eligible employees, officers, directors and consultants in the form of incentive stock options (“ISOs”), non-qualified stock options (“NQs”), each of which is exercisable into shares of common stock (“Options”) or shares of common stock (“share grants”). The Company has reserved a total of 250,000 shares of common stock for issuance under the Plan as of November 30, 2019.
Of these shares, as of November 30, 2019, approximately 83,000 options and 7,000 shares have been designated by the Board of Directors for issuance and approximately 38,000 of the options have been forfeited and returned to the option pool under the Plan due to employment terminations. As of November 30, 2019, approximately 200,000 shares remain issuable of which 167,000 are eligible to be issued as ISOs and 200,000 are eligible to be issued as either share grants or NQ stock options.
No options or shares were granted during the quarter ended November 30, 2019.
For all options granted thus far to November 30, 2019, each option is immediately exercisable and has a term of service vesting provision over a period of time as follows: 25% vest after a 12-month service period following the award, and the balance vest in equal monthly installments over the next 36 months of service. All options granted to date have a ten-year term.
Share grants are issued at fair value, considered to be the market price on the grant date. The fair value of option awards is estimated on the grant date using the Black-Scholes stock option pricing model.
Following the adoption of Accounting Standards Update ASU 2016-09, the Company elected to account for forfeitures as they occur. Any compensation cost previously recognized for an unvested award that is forfeited because of a failure to satisfy a service condition is reversed in the period of the forfeiture.
Share based compensation expense consisted of employee stock option compensation expense of $114,000 and $77,000 for the quarters ended November 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.
At November 30, 2019, the total unrecognized deferred share-based compensation expected to be recognized over the remaining weighted average vesting periods of 2.1 years for outstanding grants was $1.4 million.
