Posted on: 03 Apr 18

WAYNE, Pa., Sept. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aclaris Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACRS), a dermatologist-led biopharmaceutical company focused on identifying, developing, and commercializing innovative therapies to address significant unmet needs in aesthetic and medical dermatology and immunology, today announced that on September 4, 2018 the Compensation Committee of Aclaris’ Board of Directors granted 2 non-qualified stock option awards to purchase 27,700 shares of its common stock and 3 restricted stock unit awards covering an aggregate of 10,200 shares of its common stock to 3 new employees  under the Aclaris 2017 Inducement Plan.  The stock options and restricted stock units were granted as inducements material to the new employees becoming employees of Aclaris in accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5635(c)(4).

The 2017 Inducement Plan is used exclusively for the grant of equity awards to individuals who were not previously an employee or non-employee director of Aclaris (or following a bona fide period of non-employment), as an inducement material to such individual's entering into employment with Aclaris, pursuant to Rule 5635(c)(4) of the NASDAQ Listing Rules.

The options have an exercise price of $15.42 per share, which is equal to the closing price of Aclaris' common stock on September 4, 2018. Each option and restricted stock unit award will vest, and become exercisable (as applicable), as to twenty-five percent of the shares on each of the first, second, third, and fourth anniversaries of the recipient's start date, subject to each such employee's continued employment with Aclaris on such vesting dates. The options and restricted stock unit awards are subject to the terms and conditions of Aclaris' 2017 Inducement Plan, and the terms and conditions of a stock option agreement or restricted stock unit agreement, as applicable, covering the grant.
