(e) Adoption of Trxade Group, Inc. 2019 Equity Incentive Plan


On October 9, 2019, the Board of Directors adopted the Company’s 2019 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). The grant of incentive stock options under the Plan is subject to stockholder approval of the Plan within 12 months of the date adopted by the Board of Directors.


The material terms of the Plan are described in the Company’s Preliminary Information Statement on Schedule 14C, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 27, 2019, under the heading “The Company’s 2019 Equity Incentive Plan”, (pages 7 – 13), which description is incorporated by reference herein.


The Plan provides an opportunity for any employee, officer, director or consultant of the Company, subject to any limitations provided by federal or state securities laws, to receive (i) incentive stock options (to eligible employees only); (ii) nonqualified stock options; (iii) restricted stock; (iv) stock awards; (v) shares in performance of services; or (vi) any combination of the foregoing. In making such determinations, the Board of Directors (or the Compensation Committee) may take into account the nature of the services rendered by such person, his or her present and potential future contribution to the Company’s success, and such other factors as the Board of Directors (or the Compensation Committee) in its discretion shall deem relevant. Incentive stock options granted under the Plan (subject to stockholder approval of the Plan within 12 months of the adoption date by the Board of Directors) are intended to qualify as “incentive stock options” within the meaning of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”). Nonqualified (non-statutory stock options) granted under the Plan are not intended to qualify as incentive stock options under the Code. Subject to adjustment in connection with the payment of a stock dividend, a stock split or subdivision or combination of the shares of common stock, or a reorganization or reclassification of the Company’s common stock, the maximum aggregate number of shares of common stock which may be issued pursuant to awards under the Plan is six million 6,000,000 shares.


The above description of the Plan does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Plan, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02.
