Stock Based Compensation
We account for stock-based compensation in accordance with FASB ASC 718, Compensation Stock Compensation, as amended by (ASU) No. 2018-07, Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. Under the provisions of FASB ASC 718, stock-based compensation cost is estimated at the grant date based on the awards fair value and is recognized as expense over the requisite service period. The Company generally issues grants to its employees, consultants and board members. At the date of grant, the Company determines the fair value of the stock option or warrant award and recognizes compensation expense over the requisite service period. The fair value of the stock option or warrant award is calculated using the Black Scholes option pricing model.
During the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, stock options and warrants were granted to employees and consultants of the Company. As a result of these grants, the Company recorded compensation expense of $1,196,223 and $558,335 for these periods, respectively.
The fair value of stock options and warrants was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model based on the following weighted average assumptions:
The Black-Scholes option-pricing model was developed for use in estimating the fair value of traded options that have no vesting restrictions and are fully transferable. In addition, option-pricing models require the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the expected stock price volatility. Because the Companys employee warrants have characteristics significantly different from those of traded options and because changes in the subjective input assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimate, in managements opinion the existing models may not necessarily provide a reliable single measure of the fair value of the warrants.
