SAN FRANCISCO, June 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — DoorDash, Inc. (NYSE: DASH) (“DoorDash”) today announced it has granted equity awards under its 2022 Inducement Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) to new employees who joined DoorDash or its subsidiaries in connection with the acquisition of Wolt Enterprises Oy (“Wolt”) pursuant to the share purchase agreement between DoorDash, Wolt and certain other parties dated November 9, 2021, as amended April 9, 2022 (the “SPA”). The Plan was adopted by DoorDash’s Leadership, Development, Inclusion, & Compensation Committee of its Board of Directors in May 2022, in accordance with New York Stock Exchange Rule 303A.08.
[On May 31, 2022,] DoorDash granted a total of (i) 7,338,988 retention restricted stock units (“RSUs”) under the Plan to 1,219 continuing Wolt employees, (ii) stock options covering 1,709,656 shares under the Plan to 858 continuing Wolt employees that were granted in exchange for their cancelled vested Wolt options issued under a Wolt incentive plan, and (iii) a restricted stock award covering under 13,276 shares under the Plan to one continuing Wolt employee that was granted in exchange for shares issued under a Wolt incentive plan. Each award of retention RSUs under the Plan vests as to 25 percent of the award on the first anniversary of the grant date and the balance of the award vests quarterly on DoorDash’s quarterly vesting dates thereafter in 12 equal installments, subject to the holder’s continued service with DoorDash or its subsidiaries (including Wolt) through each applicable vesting date. The awards of stock options and restricted stock under the Plan generally are vested on the grant date, except that a portion of each option award will become exercisable only if and to the extent there is a release from the Wolt acquisition escrow and based on the employee’s pro-rata percentage of that escrow release. The stock options have an exercise price between $0.01 and $14.32 per share. The exercise price per share of each of these stock options was set based on the exercise price of the applicable cancelled vested Wolt option being exchanged, as adjusted in accordance with the SPA. Each of the employees who received an equity award is a non-executive officer.
