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

 

As described under Item 5.07 below, Reata Pharmaceuticals, Inc.  (the “Company”) held its 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) on June 12, 2019. At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s stockholders approved the Reata Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Second Amended and Restated Long Term Incentive Plan (the “LTIP”), which was adopted by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) on February 27, 2019, subject to stockholder approval at the Annual Meeting. The effective date of the LTIP is June 12, 2019 (the “Effective Date”). The LTIP provides for the reservation of an aggregate of 6,804,443 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock or Class B common stock (together, the “Common Stock”) in connection with awards of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, stock awards and substitute awards, dividend equivalents, other stock-based awards and cash awards, any of which may be further designated as performance awards, to eligible officers, employees, directors and consultants of the Company and its subsidiaries who are selected by the compensation committee of the Board to receive such an award. Additionally, on January 1, 2020 and January 1 of each calendar year occurring thereafter and prior to the expiration of the LTIP, the number of shares reserved under the LTIP will automatically be increased by an amount equal to four percent (4%) of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding on a fully diluted basis as of the close of business on the immediately preceding December 31 (calculated by adding to the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding, all outstanding securities convertible into Common Stock on such date on an as-converted basis).  However, the compensation committee of the Board may act prior to January 1 of a given year to provide that there will be no automatic increase in the number of shares reserved under the LTIP for the year or that the increase will be smaller. For purposes of clarity, the only shares of Common Stock that will count against the share limit described above are shares of Common Stock issued in connection with awards granted on or after the Effective Date and shares of Common Stock issued in connection with awards granted under the LTIP prior to its amendment and restatement that are outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Date.

 

A description of the material terms and conditions of the LTIP is provided on pages 9-17 of the Company’s proxy statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 30, 2019 (the “Proxy Statement”), and the full text of the LTIP is included as Appendix A to the Proxy Statement, which description and text are incorporated herein by reference.

Item 5.07.

Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
