Note 7 Stock Options and Warrants
Stock Options and Compensation-Based Warrants
The Company has an incentive stock option plan wherein 40,000,000 shares of the Companys common stock are reserved for issuance thereunder.
A summary of the status of options and compensation-based warrants at September 30, 2014, and changes during the nine months then ended is presented in the following table:
The fair value of stock option grants and compensation-based warrants is estimated on the date of grant or issuance using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. Options to purchase 32,624,911 shares of common stock were issued in the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 3,700,000 in the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The weighted average fair value of stock options issued during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 as $0.018 and $.011, respectively. The weighted-average assumptions used for the stock options granted and compensation-based warrants issued during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 were risk-free interest rate of 1.18% and 1.75%, volatility of 114% and 175%, expected life of 5 years, and dividend yield of zero. The expected life of stock options represents the period of time that the stock options granted are expected to be outstanding prior to exercise. The expected volatility is based on the historical price volatility of the Companys common stock. The risk-free interest rate represents the U.S. Treasury constant maturities rate for the expected life of the related stock options. The dividend yield represents anticipated cash dividends to be paid over the expected life of the stock options. The aggregate intrinsic values is based on a September 30, 2015 closing price of $0.007 per share.
Share-based compensation from all sources recorded during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 was approximately $156,000 and $44,000, respectively, and is reported as general and administrative expense in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. As of September 30, 2015, there is approximately $139,000 of unrecognized compensation cost related to stock-based payments that will be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately 2.15 years.
A summary of the status of the warrants outstanding at September 30, 2015, and changes during the nine months ended is presented in the following table:
The entire disclosure for compensation costs, including compensated absences accruals, compensated absences liability, deferred compensation arrangements and income statement compensation items. Deferred compensation arrangements may include a description of an arrangement with an individual employee, which is generally an employment contract between the entity and a selected officer or key employee containing a promise by the employer to pay certain amounts at designated future dates, usually including a period after retirement, upon compliance with stipulated requirements. This type of arrangement is distinguished from broader based employee benefit plans as it is usually tailored to the employee. Disclosure also typically includes the amount of related compensation expense recognized during the reporting period, the number of shares (units) issued during the period under such arrangements, and the carrying amount as of the balance sheet date of the related liability.
