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

 

On April 11, 2022, the Board of Directors of New Hydrogen, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the 2022 Equity Incentive Plan, or the 2022 Plan. The 2022 Plan provides for the grant of incentive stock options, non-qualified stock options, restricted stock, and restricted stock units, collectively, the “stock awards.” Stock awards may be granted under the 2022 Plan to our employees, consultants and directors.

 

The maximum number of shares of common stock initially available for issuance under the 2022 Plan is 500,000,000 shares of common stock and thereafter shall automatically be increased on the first day of the Company’s fiscal year beginning in 2023 so that the total number of shares issuable under the 2022 Plan shall at all times equal fifteen percent (15%) of the Company’s fully diluted capitalization on the first day of the Company’s fiscal year, unless the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) adopts a resolution providing that the number of shares issuable under the 2022 Plan shall not be so increased. The shares of common stock subject to stock awards granted under the 2022 Plan that are canceled, forfeited or expire prior to exercise, either in full or in part, shall again become available for issuance under the 2022 Plan. Shares subject to a stock award under the 2022 Plan shall not again be made available for issuance or delivery under the 2022 Plan if such shares are (a) shares tendered in payment of an option or (b) shares delivered or withheld by the Company to satisfy any tax withholding obligation.

 

In the event of a change in control, the Company may, but shall not be obligated to: (a) accelerate, vest or cause the restrictions to lapse with respect to all or any portion of any stock award; (b) cancel stock awards and cause to be paid to the holders of vested stock awards the value of such stock awards, if any, as determined by the Company, in its sole discretion, it being understood that in the case of any option with an option exercise price that equals or exceeds the price paid for a share of common stock in connection with the change in control, the Company may cancel the option without the payment of consideration therefor; (c) provide for the issuance of substitute stock awards or the assumption or replacement of such stock awards; or (d) provide written notice to the holders that for a period of at least ten days prior to the change in control, such stock awards shall be exercisable, to the extent applicable, as to all shares of common stock subject thereto and upon the occurrence of the change in control, any stock awards not so exercised shall terminate and be of no further force and effect.

 

The Board may suspend or terminate the 2022 Plan at any time. The 2022 Plan is scheduled to terminate automatically in ten (10) years following the effective date. No rights may be granted under the 2022 Plan while the 2022 Plan is suspended or after it is terminated. The Board may amend or modify the 2022 Plan at any time. To the extent required by applicable law or regulation, and except as otherwise provided in the 2022 Plan, stockholder approval will be required for any amendment that (a) materially increases the number of shares available for issuance under the 2022 Plan, (b) materially expands the class of individuals eligible to receive stock awards under the 2022 Plan, (c) materially increases the benefits accruing to the participants under the 2022 Plan or materially reduces the price at which shares of common stock may be issued or purchased under the 2022 Plan, (d) materially extends the term of the 2022 Plan, or (e) expands the types of awards available for issuance under the 2022 Plan.

 

Effective April 12, 2022, the board of directors approved the grant of 400,000,000 stock options to David Lee, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and 50,000,000 stock options to Spencer Hall, the Company’s Chief Operating Officer.

 

The 2022 Plan is filed with this report as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the 2022 Plan.
