YEARS ENDED JUNE 30, 2017, 2016 AND 2015

(in thousands, except per-share amounts)


At the annual meeting of shareholders of the Company, held on December 6, 2012, the Company’s shareholders approved the amended and restated Aceto Corporation 2010 Equity Participation Plan (the “2010 Plan”). Under the 2010 Plan, grants of stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units, stock appreciation rights, and stock bonuses may be made to employees, non-employee directors and consultants of the Company. The maximum number of shares of common stock of the Company that may be issued pursuant to awards granted under the 2010 Plan will not exceed, in the aggregate, 5,250 shares. In addition, restricted stock may be granted to an eligible participant in lieu of a portion of any annual cash bonus earned by such participant. Such award may include additional shares of restricted stock (premium shares) greater than the portion of bonus paid in restricted stock. The restricted stock award is vested at issuance and the restrictions lapse ratably over a period of years as determined by the Board of Directors, generally three years. The premium shares vest when all the restrictions lapse, provided that the participant remains employed by the Company at that time.


At the annual meeting of shareholders of the Company held December 6, 2007, the shareholders approved the Aceto Corporation 2007 Long-Term Performance Incentive Plan (the “2007 Plan”). The Company has reserved 700 shares of common stock for issuance under the 2007 Plan to the Company’s employees and non-employee directors. There are five types of awards that may be granted under the 2007 Plan-options to purchase common stock, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units and performance incentive units.


In September 2016, the Company granted 28 performance stock options to an executive officer at an exercise price of $20.03 per share. The performance options vest if the closing stock price meets or exceeds the target price of $40 for 20 consecutive trading days prior to June 30, 2021 and the explicit service period of 1 year has been met. The options will expire June 30, 2021, if the stock price target is not achieved. If it is achieved, the options will expire ten years from the date of grant.

There were no stock options granted in fiscal years 2016 or 2015.


As of June 30, 2017, there were 3,144, 255 and 0 shares of common stock available for grant under the 2015, 2010 and 2007 Plans, respectively.


In December 1998, the Company adopted the Aceto Corporation 1998 Omnibus Equity Award Plan (1998 Plan). The 1998 Plan expired in December 2008. Outstanding options survive the expiration of the 1998 Plan.


The following summarizes the shares of common stock under options for all plans at June 30, 2017, 2016 and 2015, and the activity with respect to options for the respective years then ended:
