J. Share-based compensation and other benefit plans:
Equity incentive plan: The Company’s 2010 Equity Incentive Plan (the 2010 Plan) provides for the granting of incentive and nonqualified stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units, performance shares, performance units and stock appreciation rights. There are 3.0 million shares of common stock authorized for grant under the 2010 Plan. At June 30, 2011, there were 2.8 million shares of common stock available for grant under the 2010 Plan. The maximum term of incentive options granted under the 2010 Plan is ten years. The 2010 Plan replaced the Company’s 1998 Nonqualified Stock Option Plan (the 1998 Plan) and 1997 Incentive Stock Option Plan (the 1997 Plan). The 2010 Plan, the 1998 Plan and the 1997 Plan (collectively, the Plans) are administered by the Board of Directors and its Compensation Committee, which determine the persons who are to receive awards under the Plans, the number of shares subject to each award and the term and exercise price of each award. The number of shares of common stock subject to outstanding awards at June 30, 2011 under the 2010 Plan, the 1998 Plan and the 1997 Plan were 183,000, 248,000, and 68,000, respectively.
Stock option activity, under the Plans for the three years ended June 30, 2011, consists of the following (shares in thousands):
The fair values of options granted under the Plans were estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following assumptions used:
The dividend yield is based on the Company’s historical annual cash dividend divided by the market value of the Company’s common stock. The expected annualized volatility is based on the Company’s historical stock price over a period equivalent to the expected life of the option granted. The risk-free interest rate is based on U.S. Treasury constant maturity interest rates with a term consistent with the expected life of the options granted.
The weighted average fair value of options granted during fiscal 2011, 2010 and 2009 was $14.58, $14.76 and $28.21, respectively. The total intrinsic value of options exercised during fiscal 2011, 2010 and 2009 were $3.1 million, $1.6 million and $648,000, respectively. The total fair value of options vested during fiscal 2011, 2010 and 2009 were $1.0 million, $1.1 million and $1.5 million, respectively.
Stock-based compensation cost of $1.1 million, $1.1 million and $1.5 million was included in selling, general and administrative expense in fiscal 2011, 2010 and 2009, respectively. As of June 30, 2011, there was $2.4 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested stock options which will be expensed in fiscal 2012 through 2015. The weighted average period over which the compensation cost is expected to be recognized is 1.5 years.
