H– STOCK OPTIONS AND WARRANTS
2020 Equity Incentive Plan
In April 2020, the Company’s Board of Directors adopted the Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc. 2020 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2020 Plan”) wherein 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock were reserved for issuance thereunder. Options and awards granted to new or existing officers, directors, employees, and non-employees vest ratably over a period as individually approved by the Board of Directors generally over three years, but not in all cases. The 2020 Plan provides for a three-month exercise period of vested options upon termination of service. The exercise price of options granted under the 2020 Plan is equal to the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant. Options issued under the 2020 Plan have a maximum term of ten years for exercise and may be exercised with cash consideration or through a cashless exercise in which the holder forfeits a portion of the award in exchange for shares of common stock of the remaining portion of the award. As of March 31, 2022, there were 106,178 shares available for future option grants under the 2020 Plan.
During the three months ended March 31, 2022 the Company granted stock options for the purchase of a total of 285,000 shares of Common Stock under the 2020 Plan, of which 185,000 were to employees and 100,000 were to directors.
For the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company recognized stock compensation expenses related to stock option awards of $312,000 and $98,000, respectively. The Company recognizes all stock-based compensation in general and administrative expenses in the accompanying
condensedconsolidated statements of operations. As of March 31, 2022, there was approximately $572,000 of unrecognized compensation cost related to option awards that will be recognized over the remaining service period of approximately 1.9 years.
The Company previously granted stock options that were not issued under the 2010
The fair value of stock option grants with only continued service conditions for vesting is estimated on the grant date using a Black-Scholes option pricing model. The following table illustrates the assumptions used in estimating the fair value of options granted during the three months ended March 31, 2022:
