Item 5.02    Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On October 27, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Antares Pharma, Inc. (the “Company”) increased the size of the Board to eight members and, upon the recommendation of the Governance and Nominating Committee of the Board, appointed Carmen Bringgold Volkart to the Board as a Class II Director. Ms. Volkart’s term will expire at the Company’s 2024 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Ms. Volkart will also serve as a member of the Audit Committee of the Board.
Ms. Volkart will be compensated pursuant to the Company’s non-employee director compensation program previously approved by the Board including, without limitation, an initial grant of stock options with a value of $100,000 which will vest and become exercisable in full on the first anniversary of the date of grant and have an exercise price equal to the closing price (the “Closing Price”) per share of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant. The actual number of shares subject to the option will be calculated using the Closing Price and the Black-Scholes model for stock options. Ms. Volkart also will enter into an indemnification agreement with the Company substantially in the form used for other directors as disclosed in the Company’s Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A for the 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
There is no arrangement or understanding between Ms. Volkart and any other persons pursuant to which Ms. Volkart was appointed to serve as a director of the Company. There are no relationships between Ms. Volkart and the Company that would require disclosure pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
