Note 3 - Share-Based Compensation


The Company’s 2015 Equity Plan (the “2015 Incentive Plan”) was approved by the stockholders at our annual meeting of stockholders on July 16, 2015. The 2015 Incentive Plan reserves 5,000,000 shares of our Common Stock for options, restricted stock, and a variety of other types of awards. The text of the 2015 Incentive Plan is included in the attachment marked as Appendix B to the Company’s Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Security and Exchange Commission on June 16, 2015. Our parent company, Tigrent Inc., has two incentive stock plans; the “2009 Incentive Plan” and the “2012 Incentive Plan”, which cover some of our current employees and directors. The financial activity pertaining to our employees and directors under the 2009 Incentive Plan, the 2012 Incentive Plan or the 2015 Incentive Plan (collectively, the “Incentive Plans”) is reflected in our condensed consolidated financial statements, presented herein.


We account for share-based awards under the provisions of ASC 718, “Compensation-Stock Compensation.” Accordingly, share-based compensation cost for all stock based payment awards made to employees and directors under the Incentive Plans is measured at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and we expense these costs using the straight-line method over the requisite service period. Share-based compensation expense was $0.0 million and $0.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. We record these costs in general and administrative expenses. See Note 7 - Stock-Based Compensation, in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2014, included in our 2014 Annual Report for further discussion.
