MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2014) - JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU) today announced that, in connection with the acquisition of Time-Bandwidth Products, a provider of high-powered and ultrafast lasers for the industrial and scientific markets, which was completed on January 26, 2014, it has issued grants of compensatory restricted stock unit awards to Time-Bandwidth employees joining JDSU in connection with the acquisition. The restricted stock unit awards to be granted to those employees by JDSU are generally comparable to equity awards that JDSU grants to its similarly situated new employees. These grants were made under the JDS Uniphase Corporation 2005 Acquisition Equity Incentive Plan, which was approved by the Board of Directors of JDSU, but not submitted for the approval of the stockholders of JDSU.
These restricted stock unit awards were approved by the JDS Uniphase Corporation Board of Directors on April 15, 2014, with a grant date of April 15, 2014. Pursuant to such approval, JDSU awarded restricted stock units covering a total of 205,000 shares of JDSU common stock to 40 employees.
The restricted stock units contain the same terms and conditions as the standard form of restricted stock unit award agreement previously approved by the Board of Directors of JDSU. The material terms of the standard form of restricted stock unit agreement are as follows. Restricted stock units vest over a three (3) or four (4) year period in equal annual installments commencing upon the first anniversary of the grant date subject to the continuous active service of the grantee.
