Effective June 11, 2012, the Compensation Committee (the Committee) of the Board of Directors of Rockwell Medical Technologies, Inc.

The restricted stock grants were made pursuant to a revised form of restricted stock agreement attached to this Report as Exhibit 10.46. The revised form of restricted stock agreement provides that, so long as the grantee remains employed by the Company, the restricted stock fully vests on the twenty-four-month anniversary of the grant date, or immediately upon a change in control (as defined in the Plan). The prior form of agreement provided for vesting in equal installments on the 18 month and 36 month anniversaries of the grant date. If the grantees employment is terminated for any reason prior to the restricted stock becoming fully vested, the grantee forfeits the restricted stock, unless otherwise determined by the Committee. The agreement also provides that restricted stock issued to the grantee may not be transferred by the grantee in any manner prior to vesting. Grantees otherwise have all rights of holders of common stock of the Company, including voting rights and the right to receive dividends, if any.
The above description of the form of restricted stock agreement does not purport to be a complete statement of the provisions thereof. Such description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of such agreement, which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.46 and is incorporated herein by reference.
