Astria Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATXS), a biopharmaceutical company developing STAR-0215 for the treatment of hereditary angioedema (HAE) and focused on life-changing therapies for rare and niche allergic and immunological diseases, granted equity awards on April 1, 2022 under Astria's 2022 Inducement Stock Incentive Plan. The 2022 Inducement Stock Incentive Plan is used exclusively for the grant of equity awards to individuals who were not previously an employee of Astria.

The inducement awards consist of options to purchase an aggregate of 32,500 shares of Astria's common stock and were granted as an inducement material to the new employees entering into employment with Astria in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635(c)(4). The options have an exercise price of $6.48, which is equal to the closing price of Astria's common stock on April 1, 2022 (the "Grant Date"). Each option will vest over a four-year period, with 25% of shares vesting on the first anniversary of the employment start date of each employee (which, in each case, preceded the Grant Date) and the remaining shares vesting monthly on a ratable basis over the following 36 months, subject to the employee's continued employment with Astria on such vesting dates. The options are subject to the terms and conditions of the 2022 Inducement Stock Incentive Plan and the terms and conditions of an award agreement covering the grant.
