Management Incentive Plans
The Company initially adopted the Omnibus Incentive Plan on July 20, 2016 for the purpose of: (a) encouraging the profitability and growth of the Company through short-term and long-term incentives that are consistent with the Company’s objectives; (b) giving participants an incentive for excellence in individual performance; (c) promoting teamwork among participants; and (d) giving the Company a significant advantage in attracting and retaining key employees, directors and consultants. To accomplish such purposes, the Omnibus Incentive Plan provides that the Company may grant options, stock appreciation rights, restricted shares, restricted stock units, performance-based awards (including performance-based restricted shares and restricted stock units), other share based awards, other cash-based awards or any combination of the foregoing.
Following the further amendment and restatement of the Omnibus Incentive Plan upon approval of the Company's stockholders on July 14, 2020, the Company has reserved a total of 1,650,000 shares of its common stock for issuance under the Omnibus Incentive Plan. The number of shares issued or reserved pursuant to the Omnibus Incentive Plan will be adjusted by the plan administrator, as they deem appropriate and equitable, as a result of stock splits, stock dividends, and similar changes in the Company’s common stock. In connection with the grant of an award, the plan administrator may provide for the treatment of such award in the event of a change in control. All awards are made in the form of shares only. See Note 18 - Subsequent Events.

Performance-Based Awards
During the first six months of 2020, the Company granted 96,500 performance-based RSUs (“PRSUs”) to its executives and certain employees under the Omnibus Incentive Plan. The Company will recognize stock-based compensation expense for these awards over the vesting period based on the projected probability of achievement of certain performance conditions as of the end of each reporting period during the performance period and may periodically adjust the recognition of such expense, as necessary, in response to any changes in the Company’s forecasts with respect to the performance conditions. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company recognized $0.1 million of stock-based compensation expense related to outstanding PRSUs. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company did not recognize any stock-based compensation expense related to any outstanding PRSUs.

Total recognized stock-based compensation expense amounted to $0.1 million and $0.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, and $0.5 million and $0.9 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively. The aggregate fair value as of the vest date of RSUs that vested during the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 was $0.6 million and $0.2 million, respectively. Total unrecognized stock-based compensation expense related to unvested RSUs which are probable of vesting was $0.6 million at June 30, 2020. These costs are expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.28 years.

Upon approval of the Company's stockholders on May 30, 2019, the Company adopted the Limbach Holdings, Inc. 2019 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“the ESPP”). On January 1, 2020, the ESPP went into effect. The ESPP enables eligible employees, as defined by the ESPP, the right to purchase the Company's common stock through payroll deductions during consecutive subscription periods at a purchase price of 85% of the fair market value of a common share at the end of each offering period. Annual purchases by participants are limited to the number of whole shares that can be purchased by an amount equal to ten percent of the participant's compensation or $5,000, whichever is less. Each offering period of the ESPP lasts six months, commencing on January 1st and July 1st of each year.  The amounts collected from participants during a subscription period are used on the exercise date to purchase full shares of common stock.  Participants may withdraw from an offering before the exercise date and obtain a refund of amounts withheld through payroll deductions. Compensation cost, representing the 15% discount applied to the fair market value of common stock, is recognized on a straight-line basis over the six-month vesting period during which employees perform related services. Under the ESPP 500,000 shares are authorized to be issued. As of June 30, 2020, no shares have been issued under the ESPP. See Note 18 - Subsequent Events.
