|Stock Based Compensation||
On October 6, 2017, the Company issued restricted stock awards totaling 3,900,000 shares of its common stock to 16 employees and awarded nonqualified stock options to purchase an aggregate of 360,000 shares of its common stock at a strike price $1.98 per share to two employees. Shares of restricted stock have the same dividend and voting rights as common stock while options do not. All awards were issued at the fair value of the underlying shares at the grant date.
During the year ended March 31, 2019, no stock options were granted. During the year ended March 31, 2018, the Company granted options to purchase 360,000 shares with a strike price of $1.98. Total compensation expense related to options granted was $215 for the year ended March 31, 2019 and $104 for the year ended March 31, 2018. As of March 31, 2019 and 2018, there was total remaining compensation expense of $328 and $543, respectively, related to stock options, which will be recorded over a weighted average period of approximately 1.52 years. During the year ended March 31, 2019, options to purchase a total of 10,000 shares were exercised.
The Company has determined fair value of stock options using the Black-Scholes option valuation model based on the following key assumptions:
Stock-based compensation expense for the cost of the awards granted is based on the grant-date fair value. For stock option awards, the fair value is estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. This model requires the input of highly subjective assumptions, changes to which can materially affect the fair value estimate. Additionally, there may be other factors that would otherwise have a significant effect on the value of employee stock options granted but are not considered by the model. Accordingly, while management believes that the Black-Scholes option-pricing model provides a reasonable estimate of fair value, the model does not necessarily provide the best single measure of fair value for the Company's employee stock options.
The following is a summary of stock option activity for year ended March 31, 2019:
During the year ended March 31, 2019, no restricted shares were awarded. During the year ended March 31, 2018, a total of 3,900,000 restricted shares were awarded. The compensation expense related to restricted stock awards was $3,283 during the year ended March 31, 2019, and $1,517 during the year ended March 31, 2018. As of March 31, 2019 and 2018, there was $3,386 and $6,669, respectively, of total unrecognized compensation cost related to nonvested shares of restricted stock granted. The cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.37 years.
