As previously announced in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Codexis, Inc. (the Company) on September 4, 2012 (the Prior 8-K), the Company appointed David OToole as its Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. On September 10, 2012, pursuant to the offer letter described in the Prior 8-K, the Compensation Committee of the Companys Board of Directors granted Mr. OToole an option to purchase 200,000 shares of the Companys common stock (the Option Award) and an award of 50,000 shares of restricted stock (the Restricted Stock Award). The Option Award has a per share exercise price equal to $2.72 per share, which was the closing price of the Companys common stock on September 10, 2012, and will vest and become exercisable on September 4, 2013 as to 25% of the shares subject thereto, with the remaining shares vesting and becoming exercisable ratably on a monthly basis over a period of 36 months thereafter, such that the Option Award will be fully vested and exercisable on September 4, 2016. The Restricted Stock Award will vest as to 25% of the shares subject thereto on each anniversary of September 4, 2012, such that the Restricted Stock Award will be fully vested on September 4, 2016. The grants were made as an inducement material to Mr. OToole entering into employment with the Company in accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5635(c)(4). The issuance of the Option Award and the Restricted Stock Award was exempt from registration under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, as a transaction not involving a public offering.
