Note 10:  Stock Options


The Company has adopted the provisions of ASC 718 – Compensation which requires companies to measure the cost of employee services received in exchange for equity instruments based on the grant date fair value of those awards and to recognize the compensation expense over the requisite service period during which the awards are expected to vest.


On December 29, 2008, the Company adopted the Pacific Entertainment Corporation 2008 Stock  Option Plan (the “Plan”), which provides for the issuance of qualified and non-qualified stock options to officers, directors, employees and other qualified persons. The Plan is administered by the Board of Directors of the Company or a committee appointed by the Board of Directors. The number of shares of the Company’s common stock initially reserved for issuance under the Plan was 11 million. On September 2, 2011, the shareholders holding a majority of the Company’s outstanding common stock adopted an amendment to the Company’s 2008 Stock Option Plan to increase the number of shares of common stock issuable under the plan to 50 million.  


As of June 30, 2013, options to purchase up to 8,370,000 shares of the Company’s common stock previously issued in 2009 through 2012 expired or were cancelled.


On May 15, 2013, Stock Option Grant Notices were issued to each of five officers to purchase up to 750,000 shares of common stock, vesting on the grant date, at an exercise price of $0.20 per share. The options have expiration dates five years from the grant date.


On May 15, 2013, options to purchase up to 250,000 shares of common stock were issued to an employee, vesting on the date of grant, at an exercise price of $0.20 per share. The options have an expiration date five years from the date of the grant notice.


On May 15, 2013, pursuant to amendments to employment agreements with Messrs. Moeller, Meader, Larry Balaban and Howard Balaban, Stock Option Grant Notices previously granted to each employee to purchase up to two million shares of common stock expiring on January 20, 2014 were cancelled effective immediately.
