In connection with the management changes that Google Inc. announced on January 20, 2011, the members of the Leadership Development and Compensation Committee of Google's Board of Directors (LDCC) approved equity awards for Eric Schmidt in the aggregate amount of $100 million on January 21, 2011. Consistent with Google's equity-granting practice, stock options and Google Stock Units (GSUs) will be granted in the ratio of two stock options for each GSU, which will result in a GSU grant value of approximately $55.6 million and an option grant value of approximately $44.4 million. The equity awards will be granted on February 2, 2011 (the first Wednesday of the month following the date on which the LDCC approved the grant) and will vest over a four-year period. The exact number of GSUs comprising the equity award will be calculated by dividing the GSU grant value by the closing price of Google's Class A common stock on February 1, 2011. The exact number of stock options comprising the equity award will be calculated by dividing the option grant value by 40% of the closing price of Google's Class A common stock on February 1, 2011. Both equity awards will be rounded up to the nearest whole share.
