These rights entitle Brandt to receive cash equal to the excess of the quoted market price over a $20 option price for 4,000 shares of the company’s common stock on the exercise date. The service period is three years (which Brandt is expected to complete) and the rights must be exercised within five years. Brandt exercises his rights on December 31, 2012.
