At the 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) of Universal Stainless & Alloy Products, Inc. (the “Company”) held on May 3, 2017, the Company’s stockholders approved the Universal Stainless & Alloy Products, Inc. 2017 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2017 Plan”). The 2017 Plan was adopted by the Company’s Board of Directors on January 28, 2017, subject to stockholder approval at the Annual Meeting.

The 2017 Plan will be administered by the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors, which will select award recipients from the eligible participants, determine the types of awards to be granted and determine the applicable terms, conditions, performance criteria, restrictions and other provisions of such awards, including any applicable vesting terms. The 2017 Plan incorporates a broad variety of cash-based and equity-based incentive compensation elements to provide the Compensation Committee with significant flexibility. Subject to permitted adjustments for certain corporate transactions, the maximum number of shares of the Company’s common stock that may be delivered under the 2017 Plan is 568,357 shares, including 168,357 shares that remained available for grant under the Universal Stainless & Alloy Products, Inc. Omnibus Incentive Plan.

The foregoing description of the 2017 Plan is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the 2017 Plan appearing as Appendix A to the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 13, 2017, which is incorporated herein by reference.
