DaVita Inc. 2020 Incentive Award Plan
On June 11, 2020, DaVita Inc. (the “Company”) held its virtual 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “2020 Annual Meeting”). As described in Item 5.07 below, at the 2020 Annual Meeting, the Company’s stockholders approved the DaVita Inc. 2020 Incentive Award Plan (the “2020 Plan”), which had been previously approved by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board of Directors”), subject to stockholder approval. The following paragraphs provide a summary of certain terms of the 2020 Plan. The summary description of the 2020 Plan below is qualified in its entirety by reference to the actual terms of the 2020 Plan attached as Appendix A to Company's Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A for the 2020 Annual Meeting, which was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 27, 2020 (the “Proxy Statement”).
The 2020 Plan is designed to promote the Company’s success and enhance its value by linking the individual interests of the members of the Board of Directors and the Company’s employees and consultants to those of the Company’s stockholders and by providing such individuals with an incentive for outstanding performance. The 2020 Plan is further intended to provide the Company flexibility in its ability to motivate, attract, and retain the services of members of the Board of Directors, employees and consultants upon whose judgment, interest, and special effort the successful conduct of the Company’s operation is largely dependent.
The 2020 Plan provides for the grant of incentive stock options, nonqualified stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock units, restricted stock, performance awards, dividend equivalents, stock payments, deferred stock unit awards and deferred stock awards.
The number of shares authorized for issuance under the 2020 Plan consists of (i) 5,000,000 shares plus (ii) the number of shares that remain available for issuance under the Company’s 2011 Incentive Award Plan (the “2011 Plan”) as of the 2020 Plan’s effective date divided by 3.5, the share deduction ratio in the 2011 Plan. Shares will be reduced from the 2020 Plan as follows: (i) to the extent the Company grants an option or stock-settled, free-standing stock appreciation right under the 2020 Plan, the number of shares that remain available for future grants under the 2020 Plan will be reduced by a number equal to one-quarter (0.25) times the number of shares subject to such option or stock appreciation right and (ii) to the extent the Company grants a share-denominated award, other than an option or stock appreciation right (“Full Value Award”) or settles a Full Value Award in shares, the number of shares that remain available for future grants under the 2020 Plan will be reduced by a number equal to one (1.0) times the number of shares subject to such Full Value Award.
