Pursuant to the Amendment, during the period from October 1, 2012 until June 30, 2013, Mr. Jansz agreed to commit additional time to performing consulting services for the Company’s management pursuant to the Consulting Agreement. In exchange for these additional services, Mr. Jansz is entitled to receive (i) a consulting fee of $12,000 AUD per month from October 1, 2012 until June 30, 2013, and (ii) a non-qualified stock option to purchase 75,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, which vests as follows: (A) 16,667 of such 75,000 shares vested on January 22, 2013, the date of grant; (B) 16,667 of such 75,000 shares will vest on January 22, 2014; (C) 16,666 of such 75,000 shares will vest on January 22, 2015; and (D) the remaining 25,000 of such 75,000 shares will vest upon the occurrence of both (i) the Company successfully obtaining full Australian reimbursement approval for both surgeon’s fees and hospital fees for the VBLOC® vagal blocking therapy and the Maestro® Rechargeable System from the Australian Medical Services Advisory Committee prior to June 30, 2014 and (ii) the Company successfully obtaining device listing for the Maestro® Rechargeable System on the Australian Prostheses List prior to June 30, 2014. In the event of a change in control of the Company prior to June 30, 2014, 100% of any unvested portion of the 25,000 shares described in (D) above shall vest immediately prior to the consummation of such change in control. In no event shall any unvested portion of the 25,000 shares described in (D) above vest after June 30, 2014. The stock option was granted pursuant to the Company’s Amended and Restated 2003 Stock Incentive Plan and has a four-year term and an exercise price equal to $2.65 (the closing price of the Company’s stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market on the date the grant was approved by the Board of Directors). The Board of Directors approved the stock option grant on January 22, 2013.
