|Share-based Payment Arrangement [Abstract]|
Pursuant to the terms of the A&R MLTIP, FoA has two major types of equity-based compensation granted to employees, henceforth referred to as Replacement Restricted Stock Units (“Replacement RSUs”) and Earnout Right Restricted Stock Units (“Earnout Right RSUs”). The issuance of the Replacement RSUs and Earnout Right RSUs to employees under the A&R MLTIP will be funded by the exchange of
current Class A Common Stock and Class A LLC Units held by the unitholders of FoA Equity prior to the closing of the Business Combination. Therefore, the shares issued to employees under the A&R MLTIP will not result in incremental share ownership in the Company, and the total compensation costs associated with the vesting of the Replacement RSUs and Earnout Right RSUs will be directly allocated to the noncontrolling interest and, with respect to Blocker GP, to FoA in proportion to their sharing percentages of exchanged units.
Pursuant to the terms of the A&R MLTIP executed on October 28, 2020, the Company granted each employee who held Phantom Units in FoA Equity and remained employed as of the Replacement RSU grant date, April 1, 2021, in consideration for the cancellation of a portion of their Phantom Units, Replacement RSUs that will vest into shares of Class A Common Stock.
Following the terms of the A&R MLTIP, 25% of the Replacement RSUs will vest on the Replacement RSU grant date, and the remaining 75% will vest in equal installments on each of the first three anniversaries of the closing of the Business Combination, subject to each holder’s continued employment.
Earnout Right RSUs
In addition to the Replacement RSUs, participants in the A&R MLTIP are entitled to receive additional Earnout Right RSUs depending on whether the Company achieves certain market-based conditions. The market-based vesting conditions have been factored into the grant date fair value measurement of the Earnout Right RSUs using a Monte Carlo simulation. The assumptions used in the Monte Carlo simulation model included a volatility rate of 60%, risk free rate of 1.14% and a weighted average expected term of 1.06 years for the first tranche of Earnout Right RSUs and 1.52 years for the second tranche of Earnout Right RSUs.
Earnout Right RSUs have the same service-based vesting conditions listed above for the Replacement RSUs along with market-based vesting conditions. The first tranche of Earnout Right RSUs vest upon satisfaction of the service-based vesting conditions and if, at any time during the six years following the Closing, the VWAP of FoA’s Class A Common Stock is greater than or equal to $12.50 for anyTrading Days within a period of consecutive Trading Days (the date when the foregoing is first satisfied, the “First Earnout Achievement Date”). The second tranche of Earnout Right RSUs vest upon satisfaction of the service-based vesting conditions and if, at any time during the six years following the Closing, the VWAP of FoA’s Class A Common Stock is greater than or equal to $15.00 for any Trading Days within a period of consecutive Trading Days (the date when the foregoing is first satisfied, the “Second Earnout Achievement Date”).
The Replacement RSUs and the Earnout Right RSUs are classified as equity and FoA accounts for the RSUs following the fair value method. Both the Replacement RSUs’ and Earnout Right RSUs’ fair values are fixed on the grant date and not remeasured unless the award is subsequently modified.
A summary of the Replacement RSU and Earnout Right RSU activity from grant until June 30, 2021 is presented below in thousands, except for share information:
No Replacement RSUs are expected to vest from July 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021. Share
No Earnout Right RSUs are expected to vest from July 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021. Share
Long-Term Incentive Plan
On January 1, 2015, the Company established a long-term incentive plan (the “Plan”) to compensate key employees. Any distributions are based on distributions received by equity holders of the Company in excess of the contributed equity capital, plus a designated return on contributed equity capital (the “Hurdle”).
The phantom units are accounted for as a profit-sharing arrangement, as they do not represent a substantive form of equity and were not indexed to the price of UFG common units.
In connection with the Closing of the Business Combination, which occurred on April 1, 2021, the holders of Phantom Units (1,077 units outstanding) received
one-timelump sum cash payments totaling $24.0 million as it relates to the achievement of the Hurdle being met under the original terms of the Plan.
The cash payment of $24.0 million relates to prior services provided solely for the benefit of the Company and not for ongoing services to be provided in the future that would benefit the post-combination entity. Given that the payment was triggered by the distributions made in connection with the successful closing of the Business Combination, the payment of $24.0 million is considered to have been incurred “on the line.” The balance of the Company’s obligation under the Plan was replaced by the issuance of equity-based compensation described above as governed by the Amended and Restated Management Long-Term Incentive Plan.
