In April 2010, executives were granted 620,000 RSUs with time-based vesting conditions, which converted into shares of Class A Common Stock during the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. Of these units, 25% vested on April 1, 2011 and the remaining shares vest 25% annually each April 1 thereafter. In addition, executives received 620,000 performance-based RSUs which converted to shares of restricted Class A Common Stock at the maximum rate of 140% during the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. The conversion rate was based upon fiscal year 2011 achievement against a return on assets ("ROA") metric. On May 18, 2011, the first 25% of the performance awards vested and the remaining awards are scheduled to vest 25% annually on each subsequent April 1.

In April 2011, the Company's Chief Executive Officer was awarded 300,000 RSUs and the Company's Chief Financial Officer was awarded 100,000 RSUs. These awards convert into shares of Class A Common Stock on a one-for-one basis upon vesting and vest in equal annual installments over four years.

Non-qualified Non-public Subsidiary Stock Options

The Company's ConferencePlus subsidiary had a stock option plan for the purchase of ConferencePlus stock. As a result of the sale of ConferencePlus, during the third quarter of fiscal year 2012, the Company purchased all outstanding ConferencePlus options with a strike price above fair market value. The purchase price for each option was equal to the difference between the fair market value of a share of ConferencePlus stock and the strike price for each option, resulting in an aggregate purchase price of $117,000 for the options. All remaining outstanding options were forfeited.
