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

(e) Compensatory Arrangements with Certain Officers.

The Board of Directors (the "Board") of Nektar Therapeutics, a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), previously approved an amendment and restatement of the Nektar Therapeutics 2017 Performance Incentive Plan (the "2017 Plan"), subject to stockholder approval, to increase the available shares under the 2017 Plan, as amended and restated (the "Amended 2017 Plan"), by 10,900,000 shares for a total share reserve of 19,200,000 shares. In addition, the amendment and restatement modified the 2017 Plan to reflect the repeal of the performance-based compensation exemption under Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. As disclosed in Item 5.07 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, the Company's stockholders approved the Amended 2017 Plan at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders of the Company held on June 26, 2018 (the "Annual Meeting").

The following summary of the Amended 2017 Plan is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the Amended 2017 Plan, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

The Board or one or more committees appointed by the Board will administer the Amended 2017 Plan. The Board has delegated general administrative authority for the Amended 2017 Plan to the compensation committee of the Board. The administrator of the Amended 2017 Plan has broad authority under the Amended 2017 Plan to, among other things, select participants and determine the type(s) of award(s) that they are to receive, and determine the number of shares that are to be subject to awards and the terms and conditions of awards, including the price (if any) to be paid for the shares or the award.

Persons eligible to receive awards under the Amended 2017 Plan include directors of the Company, officers or employees of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, and certain consultants and advisors to the Company or any of its subsidiaries.

The maximum number of shares of the Company's common stock, par value $0.0001 per share ("Common Stock"), that may be issued or transferred pursuant to awards under the Amended 2017 Plan equals 19,200,000 shares. Shares issued in respect of any "full-value award" granted under the Amended 2017 Plan will be counted against the share limit described in the preceding sentence as 1.50 shares for every one share actually issued in connection with the award. For example, if the Company granted 100 shares of Common Stock under the Amended 2017 Plan, 150 shares would be charged against the share limit with respect to that award. For this purpose, a "full-value award" means any award granted under the plan other than a stock option or stock appreciation right.

The following other limits are also contained in the Amended 2017 Plan: (1) the maximum number of shares that may be delivered pursuant to options qualified as incentive stock options granted under the plan is 19,200,000 shares; (2) the maximum number of shares subject to options and stock appreciation rights that are granted during any calendar year to any individual under the plan is 3,000,000 shares; (3) performance-based awards under Section 5.2 of the Amended 2017 Plan granted to a participant in any one calendar year will not provide for payment of more than (a) in the case of awards payable only in cash and not related to shares, $5,000,000, and (b) in the case of awards related to shares (and in addition to options and stock appreciation rights which are subject to the limit referred to above), 3,000,000 shares; and (4) the aggregate value of cash compensation and the grant date fair value (computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles) of shares of Common Stock that may be paid or granted during any calendar year to any non-employee director shall not exceed $1,200,000 for existing non-employee directors and $2,200,000 for new non-employee directors.

The types of awards that may be granted under the Amended 2017 Plan include stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, stock bonuses and other forms of awards granted or denominated in Common Stock or units of Common Stock, as well as certain cash bonus awards.

As is customary in incentive plans of this nature, each share limit and the number and kind of shares available under the Amended 2017 Plan and any outstanding awards, as well as the exercise or purchase prices of awards, and performance targets under certain types of performance-based awards, are subject to adjustment in the event of certain reorganizations, mergers, combinations, recapitalizations, stock splits, stock dividends, or other similar events that change the number or kind of shares outstanding, and extraordinary dividends or distributions of property to the stockholders.
