NanoString also announced today, as required by Nasdaq Stock Market Rules, equity inducement awards to Mr. Garland and 16 other new employees.

In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(c)(4), the Compensation and Human Capital Committee of NanoString’s Board of Directors approved the grant of the following equity award to Mr. Garland as a material inducement to Mr. Garland entering into employment with NanoString: effective as of August 28, 2023, the first day of his employment with NanoString, an award of 200,000 restricted stock units, or RSUs. In addition, if there is a change in control and if upon or during the 12 months after such change in control, Mr. Garland’s employment is terminated either (i) by NanoString without cause or (ii) by him for good reason, 100% of the unvested RSUs will become fully vested as of the termination of his employment. In addition, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee approved the grant of, in the aggregate, 59,983 RSUs to 16 employees as material inducements to their entrance into employment with NanoString, effective as of September 5, 2023.

For all of the aforementioned equity inducement awards, one-third of the RSUs vest on the first market trading day on or following the first anniversary of the effective date of grant and one-third of the RSUs vest annually each year on the first market trading day on or after the second and third anniversaries of the effective date of grant, subject to each employee’s continued service through each such date.

The inducement RSU awards were made outside of NanoString’s current stockholder approved equity plan, the 2022 Equity Incentive Plan, and under NanoString’s 2018 Inducement Equity Incentive Plan and related award agreements, but will be subject to terms and conditions generally consistent with those in the 2022 Equity Incentive Plan.
