As such, the line depicting “Old Peer Group” below consists of the aforementioned peer restaurant companies, including California Pizza Kitchen, Inc., until July 2011, when California Pizza Kitchen became a private company. Bravo Brio Restaurant Group was subsequently added to the Company’s peer group in 2011 (New Peer Group). The peer group companies all compete in the “casual dining” segment of the restaurant industry. The graph assumes that $100 was invested at inception in our common stock and in each of the indices that all dividends were reinvested. The measurement points utilized in the graph consist of the last trading day in each calendar year, which closely approximates the last day of our respective fiscal year.

Stock-Based Compensation Plan Information

We have two stock-based compensation plans — the 2005 Equity Incentive Plan and the 1996 Stock Option Plan — under which we may issue shares of our common stock to team members, officers, directors and consultants. Upon effectiveness of the 2005 Equity Incentive Plan, the 1996 Stock Option Plan was closed for purposes of new grants and the remaining available shares for grant, including those shares related to option awards forfeited or terminated without exercise under the 1996 Stock Option Plan accrue to the 2005 Equity Incentive Plan. Both of these plans have been approved by our shareholders. On June 8, 2010, at our annual shareholder meeting, our shareholders approved an amended 2005 Equity Incentive Plan which, among other things, increased the number of shares available for issuance by 1.2 million shares. Under the 2005 Equity Incentive Plan, we have granted incentive stock options, non-qualified stock options and restricted stock units. The following table provides information about the shares of our common stock that may be issued upon exercise of awards under these two plans as of January 3, 2012 (share numbers in thousands):
