Note 13. Stock-Based Compensation
2020 Equity Incentive Plans
In connection with the Business Combination, on December 29, 2020, our stockholders approved the 2020 Incentive Plan and the 2020 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “2020 ESPP Plan”).
The 2020 Incentive Plan provides for the grant of stock options, stock appreciation rights, and full value awards. Full value awards include restricted stock, restricted stock units, deferred stock units, performance stock and performance stock units. Up to 3,093,984 shares of our common stock were authorized to be issued with respect to awards under the 2020 Incentive Plan. This limit is subject to adjustment in the event of a stock split, stock dividend or other changes in our capitalization.
The 2020 ESPP Plan provides for the sale of our common stock to our employees through payroll withholding at a discount of 15% from the lower of the closing price of our common stock on the first or last day of each biannual offering period. Up to 2,571,737 shares of our common stock were authorized to be issued under this plan. The first offering period under the 2020 ESPP Plan commenced on April 1, 2021.
On March 10, 2021, we completed a Registration Form on Form S-8 to register the shares under the 2020 Equity Incentive Plan and the 2020 ESPP Plan. On this date, a grant of 3,035,676 shares of restricted stock was effective. The restrictions on half of these shares lapse ratably on the first, second, and third anniversaries of the grant date. The fair value of these shares on the date of grant was $37.09 and we are recognizing the compensation expense for these shares on a straight-line basis from the grant date through December 29, 2023. The restrictions on the other half of these shares lapse as follows:
To reflect the effect of this market condition on the vesting of these restricted shares, we valued them using a Monte Carlo simulation, which takes into account a large number of potential stock price scenarios over time and incorporates varied assumptions about volatility and exercise behavior for those various scenarios. A fair value is determined for each potential outcome. The grant date fair value of these restricted shares is the average of the fair values calculated for each potential outcome, or $36.57. We are recognizing the compensation expense for these shares on a straight-line basis from the grant date through December 29, 2023.
No other grants of restricted shares have been made.
A summary of stock option activity under our equity plans for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 follows:
The aggregate intrinsic values are calculated as the difference between the exercise price of the indicated stock options and the fair value of our common stock on the respective exercise dates or on March 31, 2021, as applicable.
The weighted average grant-date fair values of options granted during the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $18.52 per option. We have estimated the fair values of our option awards on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions:
As of March 31, 2021, there was $157.1 million of unrecognized compensation cost related to nonvested stock options and restricted shares granted under the 2020 Incentive Plan. That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.7 years.
During the quarter ended December 31, 2020, we awarded 1,466,874 stock options that are contingent upon on shareholder approval of an increase in the number of shares issuable under the 2020 Incentive Plan, which has not occurred and which we determined is not a perfunctory exercise, therefore no accounting grant date has been established. As a result, these awards are not reflected in our Consolidated Financial Statements.
