|Disclosure of Compensation Related Costs, Share-based Payments [Abstract]|
As of September 30, 2018, the KEMET Corporation Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Incentive Plan”), which amended and restated the KEMET Corporation 2014 Amendment and Restatement of the KEMET Corporation 2011 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan, approved by the Company’s stockholders on August 2, 2017, is the only plan the Company has to issue equity based awards to executives and key employees. Upon adoption of the Incentive Plan, no further awards were permitted to be granted under the Company’s prior plans, including the 1992 Key Employee Stock Option Plan, the 1995 Executive Stock Option Plan, and the 2004 Long-Term Equity Incentive Plan (collectively, the “Prior Plans”).
The Incentive Plan has authorized, in the aggregate, the grant of up to 12.2 million shares of the Company’s Common Stock, comprised of 11.4 million shares under the Incentive Plan and 0.8 million shares remaining from the Prior Plans and authorizes the Company to provide equity-based compensation in the form of:
Except as described below, options issued under these plans vest within one to three years and expire ten years from the grant date. Restricted stock and RSUs issued under these plans vest over one to four years, except for RSUs granted to members of the Board of Directors (the “Board”), which vest immediately beginning in fiscal year 2019. The Company grants RSUs to members of the Board, the Chief Executive Officer and key members of management. Once vested and settled, RSUs are converted into restricted stock. For members of the Board and key members of management, such restricted stock cannot be sold until 90 days after termination of service with the Company, or until the individual achieves the targeted ownership under the Company’s stock ownership guidelines, and only to the extent that such ownership level exceeds the target. Compensation expense is recognized over the respective vesting periods.
Historically, the Board of the Company has approved annual Long Term Incentive Plans (“LTIP”), which cover two year periods and are primarily based upon the achievement of an Adjusted EBITDA range for the two-year period. At the time of the award, the individual plans entitle the participants to receive cash or RSUs, or a combination of both as determined by the Company’s Board. The 2016/2017, 2017/2018, 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 LTIP also awarded RSUs which vest over the course of three years from the anniversary of the establishment of the plan and are not subject to a performance metric. The Company assesses the likelihood of meeting the Adjusted EBITDA financial metric on a quarterly basis and adjusts compensation expense to match expectations. Any related liability is reflected in the line item “Accrued expenses” on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and any RSU commitment is reflected in the line item “Additional paid-in capital” on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
On May 18, 2018, the Company granted RSUs under the 2019/2020 LTIP with a grant date fair value of $17.86 that vest as follows (amounts in thousands):
(1) RSUs granted include a performance component. Therefore the granted shares shown above are an estimate based upon current performance expectations. The final number of shares granted depends on the achievement of performance metrics.

Upon the signing of the Amended and Restated Employment Agreement, certain RSUs previously granted to Mr. Loof on June 29, 2015, totaling 175,000 shares, and on September 6, 2017, totaling 100,000 shares, both of which were scheduled to vest over time, became fully vested. Incremental compensation cost resulting from the modification totaled $1.7 million.
