Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

On June 3, 2021, at the 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Advaxis, Inc. (the “Company”), the Company’s stockholders approved an Amendment to the Advaxis, Inc. 2015 Incentive Plan (the “Amendment”), which was previously approved, subject to stockholder approval, by the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company on February 11, 2021. The Amendment increases the existing per-participant annual award limitations under the Company’s 2015 Incentive Plan to those set forth below:

 

    Options. The maximum number of options granted under the 2015 Incentive Plan in any calendar year to any one participant shall be for 1,000,000 shares.
       
    Stock Appreciation Rights. The maximum number of stock appreciation rights granted under the 2015 Incentive Plan in any calendar year to any one participant shall be with respect to 750,000 shares.
       
    Performance Awards. With respect to any calendar year (i) the maximum amount that may be paid to any one participant for performance awards payable in cash or property other than shares shall be $10,000,000, and (ii) the maximum number of shares that may be paid to any one participant for performance awards payable in stock shall be 1,000,000 shares. For purposes of applying these limits in the case of multi-year performance periods, the amount of cash or property or number of shares deemed paid with respect to any calendar year is the total amount payable or shares earned for the performance period divided by the number of calendar years in the performance period.
       
    Awards to Non-Employee Directors. The maximum aggregate number of shares associated with any award granted under the 2015 Incentive Plan in any calendar year to any of the Company’s non-employee directors shall be 200,000 shares.

 

Except for the increases to the existing annual award limitations under the 2015 Incentive Plan, as described above, the Amendment does not have any effect on the other provisions of the 2015 Incentive Plan.

 

The foregoing summary of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Amendment which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1.
