The Company granted Mr. Crain a non-qualified option to purchase 2,000,000 shares of Radiant common stock in October of 2005 under Radiant's 2005 Stock Incentive Plan (the "Founder Options") with an exercise price of $0.50 per share for 1,000,000 shares and an exercise price of $0.75 per share for the other 1,000,000 shares.
Mr. Crain has begun the process of exercising the Founder Options through the exercise of the option to purchase 325,000 shares at a strike price of $0.75 per share (the " March 2014 Exercise") and expects to exercise the remaining Founder Options over the course of the next 18 months, subject to SEC and Company imposed trading restrictions, in order to complete a full exercise of the Founder Options before the options expire in October 2015. In accordance with the 2005 Stock Incentive Plan, the Company withheld 146,485 shares otherwise issuable to Mr. Crain having a fair market value equal to the option exercise price of the shares being purchased pursuant to the exercise of the option along with applicable tax withholding, thus resulting in Mr. Crain receiving 178,515 net shares of Radiant common stock from the transaction.
