OneSpaWorld Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: OSW) (“OneSpaWorld,” or the “Company”), the pre-eminent global provider of health and wellness services and products on board cruise ships and in destination resorts around the world, announced today that Leonard Fluxman, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Stephen Lazarus, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer, have voluntarily surrendered incentive compensation options to purchase 3.4 million of the Company’s common shares. The common shares underlying these surrendered options will be available for future grant to Company personnel under the OneSpaWorld 2019 Equity Incentive Plan, which had been depleted.
Leonard Fluxman, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We believe the initial reopening of travel and tourism and improving consumer sentiment have us very well positioned to capitalize on the many advantages of our operating platform and drive increasing business momentum in the near and long term. The decision to return options granted to senior leadership to the 2019 Equity Incentive Plan pool advances our stakeholder goals by making them available as part of our long term equity incentive program for our employee base. This action will allow us to motivate, retain and attract strong talent without creating dilution to shareholders through the issuance of new grants.”
