|Capital Stock, Stock Plans and Stock Based Compensation||
The Company has certain stock option plans under which it may award incentive stock options (“ISOs”) and/or non-qualified stock options (“NQSOs”) to employees, officers, outside directors, and outside consultants.
On May 4, 2021, the Company granted NQSOs from the Company’s 2003 Outside Directors Stock Plan (“2003 Plan”) to a new director elected by the Company’s Board of Directors (“Board”) to fill a vacancy on the Board. The options granted were for a contractual term of ten years with a vesting period of six months. The exercise price of the options was $ per share, which was equal to the Company’s closing stock price per share the day preceding the grant date, pursuant to the 2003 Plan.
The Company granted a NQSO to Robert Ferguson on July 27, 2017 from the Company’s 2017 Stock Option Plan (“2017 Plan”) for the purchase of up to shares of the Company’s Common Stock (“Ferguson Stock Option”) in connection with his work as a consultant to the Company’s Test Bed Initiative (“TBI”) at our Perma-Fix Northwest Richland, Inc. (“PFNWR”) facility at an exercise price of $ per share, which was the fair market value of the Company’s Common Stock on the date of grant. The term of the Ferguson Stock Option is seven years from the grant date. The vesting of the Ferguson Stock Option is subject to the achievement of three separate milestones by certain dates. The options under the first milestone were exercised by Robert Ferguson in 2018. The vesting date for the second and third milestones for the purchase of up to and shares of the Company’s Common Stock was previously extended to December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2022, respectively. The Company has not recognized compensation costs (fair value of approximately $ at June 30, 2021) for the remaining Ferguson Stock Option under the remaining two milestones since achievement of the performance obligation under each of the two remaining milestones is uncertain at June 30, 2021. All other terms of the Ferguson Stock Option remain unchanged.
The Company estimates fair value of stock options using the Black-Scholes valuation model. Assumptions used to estimate the fair value of stock options granted include the exercise price of the award, the expected term, the expected volatility of the Company’s stock over the option’s expected term, the risk-free interest rate over the option’s expected term, and the expected annual dividend yield. The fair value of the options granted on May 4, 2021 as discussed above and the related assumptions used in the Black-Scholes option model used to value the options granted were as follows:
