New Products for JDSU
With the acquisition, JDSU will expand its portfolio of high-value mobility software with the following solutions:
•AriesoGEO - Multi-vendor, location-aware network monitoring and optimization solution that delivers intelligence for more effective network performance engineering. •AriesoACP - Automated network planning technology that searches all possible configurations to deliver optimum network designs.
Both solutions leverage Arieso's proprietary algorithms that provide highly rich and targeted data from mobile connection events that give mobile operators visibility into service level activity and usage patterns.
JDSU also announced that it will be issuing grants of compensatory restricted stock unit awards to employees joining JDSU in connection with the acquisition. The restricted stock unit awards to be granted to those employees by JDSU are generally comparable to equity awards that JDSU grants to its similarly situated new employees. These grants were made under the JDS Uniphase Corporation 2005 Acquisition Equity Incentive Plan, which was approved by the Board of Directors of JDSU, but not submitted for the approval of the stockholders of JDSU.
These restricted stock unit awards were approved by the JDS Uniphase Corporation Board of Directors on March 1, 2013, with such approval being further subject to the close of the acquisition. Pursuant to such approval, on March 15, 2013, JDSU will award restricted stock units covering a total of 207,880 shares of JDSU common stock. Awards will be granted to 12 employees.
The restricted stock units to be granted will contain the same terms and conditions as the standard form of restricted stock unit award agreement previously approved by the Board of Directors of JDSU. The material terms of the standard form of restricted stock unit agreement are as follows. Restricted stock units vest over a three (3) or four (4) year period in equal annual installments commencing upon the first anniversary of the grant date subject to the continuous active service of the grantee.
