Rainmaker Systems Reports Inducement Grant Under NASDAQ Listing Rule

Rainmaker Systems Inc. (RMKR) announced that the Compensation Committee of Rainmaker's Board of Directors granted an inducement award to Donald Massaro in connection with his entering into employment as Rainmaker's President and Chief Executive Officer.

On December 13, 2012, Rainmaker previously announced the hiring of Massaro, with his employment beginning on December 11, 2012.

Massaro's inducement awards, granted under Rainmaker's 2012 Inducement Equity Incentive Plan adopted by Rainmaker's Board of Directors on December 21, 2012, consist of (1) a grant of 500,000 restricted shares of common stock which will vest 1/16th quarterly over a four year term, (2) an option to purchase 500,000 shares of common stock which will vest 1/16th quarterly over a four year term and (3) a grant of 250,000 restricted shares of common stock which will vest in a single installment on March 31, 2013.

The grant of 250,000 restricted shares vesting on March 31, 2013 was negotiated by Massaro as part of his initial compensation, as Massaro requested stock compensation in lieu of cash compensation for a specified period due to his confidence in Rainmaker's potential future stock price appreciation.

The Compensation Committee of Rainmaker's Board of Directors granted the awards on December 27, 2012 as inducements material to Massaro entering into employment with Rainmaker in accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5635(c)(4).

Continuing efforts to normalize relations, President Barack Obama announced Wednesday the U.S. and Cuba will re-open embassies in each country's respective capitals later this month. Obama described the move as a demonstration that the U.S. and Cuba don't have to be imprisoned by the past. For pragmatic reasons, Senator Lindsay Graham no longer wants the party to "reaffirm our support for a Constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman," as they did at the 2012 Republican Convention. The most "American" vehicle isn't Built Ford Tough. It's not in jingles sung by John Mellencamp or Bob Seger, and it probably isn't kickin' up backroads dust somewhere in the Heartland.
