Karyopharm Therapeutics : Reports Inducement Grants Under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(c)(4)

09/01/2021 | 07:01am EDT

NEWTON, Mass., Sept. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Karyopharm Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: KPTI), a commercial-stage pharmaceutical company pioneering novel cancer therapies, today announced that in connection with the hiring of Eleonora Goldberg, Senior Vice President of Global Medical & Scientific Affairs,  the Compensation Committee of Karyopharm's Board of Directors granted a stock option to purchase 100,000 shares of Karyopharm's common stock to Dr. Goldberg, with a grant date of August 31, 2021. The stock option was granted as an inducement material to Dr. Goldberg entering into employment with Karyopharm in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(c)(4).

The Compensation Committee also granted stock options to purchase an aggregate of 76,700 shares of Karyopharm's common stock to 16 newly-hired employees, with a grant date of August 31, 2021. The stock options were granted as inducements material to the new employees entering into employment with Karyopharm in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(c)(4).

Each of the stock options has an exercise price of $5.80 per share, the closing price of Karyopharm's common stock on August 31, 2021. Each stock option vests over four years, with 25% of the total number of shares underlying the stock option vesting on the one-year anniversary of the applicable employee's employment commencement date and 1/48th of the total number of shares vesting monthly thereafter, subject to the employee's continued service as an employee of, or other service provider to, Karyopharm through the applicable vesting dates. In addition, each stock option will be immediately exercisable in full if, on or prior to the first anniversary of the consummation of a "change in control event," the employee's employment is terminated for "good reason" by the employee or terminated without "cause" by Karyopharm (as such terms are defined in the applicable stock option agreement).
