Equity Incentive Program
As of September 30, 2021, 9.9 million shares remained available for issuance under our 2004 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2004 Plan”). For details of the 2004 Plan refer to Note 10 “Equity, Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plans and Non-Controlling Interest” to our Consolidated Financial Statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021.
Assumed Equity Plans
As part of the acquisition of Orbotech Ltd. (“Orbotech”) in February 2019, we assumed outstanding equity incentive awards under the following Orbotech equity incentive plans: (i) Equity Remuneration Plan for Key Employees of Orbotech and
its Affiliates and Subsidiaries (as Amended and Restated in 2005), (ii) 2010 Equity-Based Incentive Plan, and (iii) 2015 Equity-Based Incentive Plan (the “Assumed Equity Plans”).
As of September 30, 2021, there were 74,535 shares of our common stock underlying the outstanding Assumed restricted stock units (“RSUs”) under the Assumed Equity Plans. For details on the Assumed Equity Plans refer to Note 10 “Equity, Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plans and Non-Controlling Interest” to our Consolidated Financial Statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021.
Equity Incentive Plans - General Information
The following table summarizes the combined activity under our equity incentive plans:
(1)The number of RSUs reflects the application of the award multiplier of 2.0x to calculate the impact of the award on the shares reserved under the 2004 Plan.
(2)No additional stock options, RSUs or other awards will be granted under the Assumed Equity Plans.
(3)Includes RSUs granted to senior management during the three months ended September 30, 2021 with performance-based vesting criteria (in addition to service-based vesting criteria for any of such RSUs that are deemed to have been earned) (“performance-based RSUs”). This line item includes all such performance-based RSUs granted during the three months ended September 30, 2021 reported at the maximum possible number of shares that may ultimately be issuable if all applicable performance-based criteria are achieved at their maximum levels and all applicable service-based criteria are fully satisfied (0.2 million shares for the three months ended September 30, 2021 reflects the application of the multiplier described above).
(4)Represents the portion of RSUs granted with performance-based vesting criteria and reported at the actual number of shares issued upon achievement of the performance vesting criteria during the three months ended September 30, 2021.
The fair value of stock-based awards is measured at the grant date and is recognized as an expense over the employee’s requisite service period. For RSUs granted without “dividend equivalent” rights, fair value is calculated using the closing price of our common stock on the grant date, adjusted to exclude the present value of dividends which are not accrued on those RSUs. The fair value for RSUs granted with “dividend equivalent” rights is determined using the closing price of our common stock on the grant date. Compensation expense for RSUs with performance metrics is calculated based upon expected achievement of the metrics specified in the grant, or when a grant contains a market condition, the grand date fair value using a Monte Carlo simulation.
The following table shows stock-based compensation expense for the indicated periods:
Stock-based compensation capitalized as inventory as of September 30, 2021 and June 30, 2021 was $7.1 million and $8.0 million, respectively.
Restricted Stock Units
The following table shows the activity and weighted-average grant date fair values for RSUs during the three months ended September 30, 2021:
(1)Share numbers reflect actual shares subject to awarded RSUs.
(2)Includes performance-based RSUs.
(3)This line item includes performance-based RSUs granted during the three months ended September 30, 2021 reported at the maximum possible number of shares that may ultimately be issuable if all applicable performance-based criteria are achieved at their maximum levels and all applicable service-based criteria are fully satisfied (0.1 million shares for the three months ended September 30, 2021).
The RSUs granted by us generally vest as follows: with respect to awards with only service-based vesting criteria, over periods ranging from to four years; with respect to awards with both performance-based and service-based vesting criteria, in two equal installments on the third and fourth anniversaries of the grant date; and with respect to awards with both market-based and service-based vesting criteria in three equal installments on the third, fourth and fifth anniversaries of the grant date, in each case subject to the recipient remaining employed by us as of the applicable vesting date. The RSUs granted to the independent members of the Board of Directors vest annually.
The following table shows the weighted-average grant date fair value per unit for the RSUs granted, vested, and tax benefits realized by us in connection with vested and released RSUs for the indicated periods:
As of September 30, 2021, the unrecognized stock-based compensation expense balance related to RSUs was $194.2 million, excluding the impact of estimated forfeitures, and will be recognized over a weighted-average remaining contractual term and an estimated weighted-average amortization period of 1.5 years. The intrinsic value of outstanding RSUs as of September 30, 2021 was $535.1 million.
Cash-Based Long-Term Incentive Compensation
We have adopted a cash-based long-term incentive (“Cash LTI”) program (“Cash LTI Plan”) for many of our employees as part of our employee compensation program. Executives and non-employee members of the Board of Directors do not participate in the Cash LTI Plan. During the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, we approved Cash LTI awards of $6.6 million and $3.5 million, respectively. Cash LTI awards issued to employees under the Cash LTI Plan will vest in three or four equal installments, with one-third or one-fourth of the aggregate amount of the Cash LTI award vesting on each anniversary of the grant date over a or four-year period. In order to receive payments under a Cash LTI award, participants must remain employed by us as of the applicable award vesting date. During the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, we recognized $21.8 million and $19.4 million, respectively, in compensation expense under the Cash LTI Plan. As of September 30, 2021, the unrecognized compensation balance (excluding the impact of estimated forfeitures) related to the Cash LTI Plan was $203.9 million. For details, refer to Note 10 “Equity, Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plans and Non-Controlling Interest” to our Consolidated Financial Statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021.
Employee Stock Purchase Plan
Our Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“ESPP”) provides that eligible employees may contribute up to 15% of their eligible earnings toward the semi-annual purchase of our common stock. The ESPP is qualified under Section 423 of the Internal Revenue Code. The employee’s purchase price is derived from a formula based on the closing price of the common stock on the first day of the offering period versus the closing price on the date of purchase (or, if not a trading day, on the immediately preceding trading day).
The offering period (or length of the look-back period) under the ESPP has a duration of six months, and the purchase price with respect to each offering period beginning on or after such date is, until otherwise amended, equal to 85% of the lesser of (i) the fair market value of our common stock at the commencement of the applicable six-month offering period or (ii) the fair market value of our common stock on the purchase date. We estimate the fair value of purchase rights under the ESPP using a Black-Scholes model.
The fair value of each purchase right under the ESPP was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes model and the straight-line attribution approach with the following weighted-average assumptions:
The following table shows total cash received from employees for the issuance of shares under the ESPP, the number of shares purchased by employees through the ESPP, the tax benefits realized by us in connection with the disqualifying dispositions of shares purchased under the ESPP and the weighted-average fair value per share for the indicated periods:
The ESPP shares are replenished annually on the first day of each fiscal year by virtue of an evergreen provision. The provision allows for share replenishment equal to the lesser of 2.0 million shares or the number of shares which we estimate will be required to be issued under the ESPP during the forthcoming fiscal year. As of September 30, 2021, a total of 2.2 million shares were reserved and available for issuance under the ESPP.
Quarterly Cash Dividends
On September 1, 2021, we paid a quarterly cash dividend of $1.05 per share to stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 16, 2021. The total amount of regular quarterly cash dividends and dividend equivalents paid during the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 was $162.8 million and $141.2 million, respectively. The amount of accrued dividend equivalents payable for regular quarterly cash dividends on unvested RSUs with dividend equivalent rights as of September 30, 2021 and June 30, 2021 was $9.1 million and $10.3 million, respectively. These amounts will be paid upon vesting of the underlying RSUs.
We have consolidated the results of Orbograph Ltd. (“Orbograph”), in which we own approximately 94% of the outstanding equity interest. Orbograph is engaged in the development and marketing of character recognition solutions to banks, financial and other payment processing institutions and healthcare providers.
During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, we entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement to sell certain core assets of Orbotech LT Solar, LLC (“OLTS”), which was engaged in the research, development and marketing of products for the deposition of thin film coating of various materials on crystalline silicon photovoltaic wafers for solar energy panels through plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition. The sale was completed in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 and the proceeds werenot material. We consolidate the results of OLTS, which is considered a non-strategic business, of which we own 97% of the outstanding equity interest as of September 30, 2021.
