Effective July 8, 2016 the Company's board of directors approved the Polar Power 2016 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the "2016 Plan"), authorizing the issuance of up to 1,754,385 shares of common stock as incentives to employees and consultants to the Company with awards limited to a maximum of 350,877 shares to any one participant in any calendar year.


In April 2018, the Company granted options to purchase an aggregate of 330,000 shares of the Company's common stock to three of its executive officers, with exercise prices ranging from $5.09 to $5.60 per share, that expire ten years from the date of grant, and with one-third of the total options granted vesting on each of the first, second, and third anniversaries of the grant date. The fair value of each of the option award was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model based on the following assumptions: (i) volatility rate of 57.71%, (ii) discount rate of 2.42%, (iii) zero expected dividend yield, and (iv) expected life of 6.5 years, which is the average of the term of the options and their vesting periods. The total fair value of these options at their grant dates was approximately $948,000.


On October 1, 2019, the Company's three executive officers agreed to terminate their rights to 220,000 stock option shares that had not vested as of April 1, 2019.


During the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company recorded stock-based compensation costs of $78,943 and $327,471 related to the vesting of these options. As of December 31, 2019, there was $210,511 of unamortized cost compensation costs that will be amortized over the next 1.25 years.


There was no intrinsic value of the outstanding and exercisable options at December 31, 2019.
