On January 30, 2018, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of SeaChange approved long term incentive awards (the “2019 Long Term Incentive Plan”) under SeaChange’s Second Amended and Restated 2011 Compensation and Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), effective January 31, 2018, for Edward Terino, Peter Faubert, Jon Rider and David McEvoy, each a named executive officer of SeaChange. The 2019 Long Term Incentive Plan was established after giving consideration to compensation practices of SeaChange’s peer companies, and commentary regarding executive compensation trends and practices.

Long Term Incentive Plan

The following Long Term Incentive Plan was approved by the Committee:

 

  Stock Options . An award of options to purchase the number of shares of SeaChange’s common stock set forth opposite the applicable executive’s name below at an exercise price equal SeaChange’s closing stock price on January 31, 2018, to be vested ratably on an annual basis over the three years on January 31, 2019, January 31, 2020, and January 31, 2021:

The vesting of the PSUs is based on SeaChange achieving certain overall Company financial objectives for fiscal 2019, 2020 and 2021 related to Total Revenue and Non-GAAP Operating Income in fiscal 2019 and to be determined in fiscal 2020 and 2021. Such awards of PSUs will vest, if at all, on January 31, 2019, January 31, 2020, and January 31, 2021, based on upon conclusion of SeaChange’s 2019, 2020 and 2021 fiscal years.

The Long Term Incentive Plan provides that the Compensation Committee has the discretion with respect to the PSUs to determine the amount paid under thereunder, whether or not the criteria are satisfied.
