As of the Record Date, there were approximately 37,821,722 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting.

INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PROXY STATEMENT

Why you received this proxy statement.  You are viewing or have received these proxy materials because Radius's Board of Directors is soliciting your proxy to vote your shares at the Annual Meeting. This proxy statement includes information that we are required to provide to you under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and that is designed to assist you in voting your shares.

Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials.  As permitted by SEC rules, Radius is making this proxy statement and its 2014 Annual Report available to its stockholders electronically via the Internet. On or about March 25, 2015, we mailed to our stockholders a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials (the "Internet Notice") containing instructions on how to access this proxy statement and our 2014 Annual Report and vote online. If you received an Internet Notice by mail, you will not receive a printed copy of the proxy materials in the mail unless you specifically request them. Instead, the Internet Notice instructs you on how to access and review all of the important information contained in the proxy statement and 2014 Annual Report. The Internet Notice also instructs you on how you may submit your proxy over the Internet. If you received an Internet Notice by mail and would like to receive a printed copy of our proxy materials, you should follow the instructions for requesting such materials contained on the Internet Notice.

Printed Copies of Our Proxy Materials.  If you received printed copies of our proxy materials, then instructions regarding how you can vote are contained on the proxy card included in the materials.

Householding.  The SEC's rules permit us to deliver a single Internet Notice or set of proxy materials to one address shared by two or more of our stockholders. This delivery method is referred to as "householding" and can result in significant cost savings. To take advantage of this opportunity, we have delivered only one Internet Notice or one set of proxy materials to multiple stockholders who share an address, unless we received contrary instructions from the impacted stockholders prior to the mailing date. We agree to deliver promptly, upon written or oral request, a separate copy of the Internet Notice or proxy materials, as requested, to any stockholder at the shared address to which a single copy of those documents was delivered. If you prefer to receive separate copies of the Internet Notice or proxy materials, contact Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. at (800) 542-1061 or in writing at Broadridge, Householding Department, 51 Mercedes Way, Edgewood, New York 11717.

If you are currently a stockholder sharing an address with another stockholder and wish to receive only one copy of future Internet Notices or proxy materials for your household, please contact Broadridge at the above phone number or address.

Questions and Answers about the 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders

WHO IS ENTITLED TO VOTE AT THE ANNUAL MEETING?

The Record Date for the Annual Meeting is March 13, 2015. You are entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting only if you were a stockholder of record at the close of business on that date, or if you hold a valid proxy for the Annual Meeting. Each outstanding share of Common Stock is entitled to one vote for all matters before the Annual Meeting. At the close of business on the Record Date, there were 37,821,722 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING A "RECORD HOLDER" AND HOLDING SHARES IN "STREET NAME"?

A record holder holds shares in his or her name. Shares held in "street name" means shares that are held in the name of a bank or broker on a person's behalf.

AM I ENTITLED TO VOTE IF MY SHARES ARE HELD IN "STREET NAME"?

Yes. If your shares are held by a bank or a brokerage firm, you are considered the "beneficial owner" of those shares held in "street name." If your shares are held in street name, these proxy materials are being provided to you by your bank or brokerage firm, along with a voting instruction card if you received printed copies of our proxy materials. As the beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your bank or brokerage firm how to vote your shares, and the bank or brokerage firm is required to vote your shares in accordance with your instructions. If your shares are held in street name, you may not vote your shares in person at the Annual Meeting unless you obtain a legal proxy from your bank or brokerage firm.

HOW MANY SHARES MUST BE PRESENT TO HOLD THE ANNUAL MEETING?

A quorum must be present at the Annual Meeting for any business to be conducted. The presence at the Annual Meeting, in person or by proxy, of the holders of a majority in voting power of the Common Stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote on the Record Date will constitute a quorum.

WHO CAN ATTEND THE 2015 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS?

You may attend the Annual Meeting only if you are a Radius stockholder who is entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting, or if you hold a valid proxy for the Annual Meeting. If you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, you must call 617-551-4000 no later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern time on May 5, 2015 to have your name placed on the attendance list. In order to be admitted into the Annual Meeting, your name must appear on the attendance list and you must present government-issued photo identification (such as a driver's license). If your bank or broker holds your shares in street name, you will also be required to present proof of beneficial ownership of our Common Stock on the Record Date, such as the Internet Notice you received from your bank or broker, or a bank or brokerage statement or a letter from your bank or broker showing that you owned shares of our Common Stock at the close of business on the Record Date.

WHAT IF A QUORUM IS NOT PRESENT AT THE ANNUAL MEETING?

If a quorum is not present at the scheduled time of the Annual Meeting, (i) the chairperson of the Annual Meeting or (ii) a majority in voting power of the stockholders entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting, present in person or represented by proxy, may adjourn the Annual Meeting until a quorum is present or represented.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THE 2015 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS

WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF I RECEIVE MORE THAN ONE INTERNET NOTICE OR MORE THAN ONE SET OF PROXY MATERIALS?

It means that your shares are held in more than one account at the transfer agent and/or with banks or brokers. Please vote all of your shares. To ensure that all of your shares are voted, for each Internet Notice or set of proxy materials, please submit your proxy by phone, via the Internet, or, if you received printed copies of the proxy materials, by signing, dating and returning the enclosed proxy card in the enclosed envelope.

HOW DO I VOTE?

We recommend that stockholders vote by proxy even if they plan to attend the Annual Meeting and vote in person. If you are a stockholder of record, there are three ways to vote by proxy:

Telephone and Internet voting facilities for stockholders of record will be available 24 hours a day and will close at 11:59 p.m., Eastern time, on May 6, 2015.

If your shares are held in street name through a bank or broker, you will receive instructions on how to vote from the bank or broker. You must follow their instructions in order for your shares to be voted. Telephone and Internet voting also may be offered to stockholders owning shares through certain banks and brokers. If your shares are not registered in your own name and you would like to vote your shares in person at the Annual Meeting, you should contact your bank or broker to obtain a legal proxy and bring it to the Annual Meeting in order to vote.

CAN I CHANGE MY VOTE AFTER I SUBMIT MY PROXY?

Yes.

If you are a registered stockholder, you may revoke your proxy and change your vote:

Your most recent proxy card or telephone or Internet proxy is the one that is counted. Your attendance at the Annual Meeting by itself will not revoke your proxy unless you give written notice of revocation to the Secretary before your proxy is voted or you vote in person at the Annual Meeting.

If your shares are held in street name, you may change or revoke your voting instructions by following the specific directions provided to you by your bank or broker, or you may vote in person at the Annual Meeting by obtaining a legal proxy from your bank or broker and submitting the legal proxy along with your ballot.

WHO WILL COUNT THE VOTES?

A representative of Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc., our inspector of election, will tabulate and certify the votes.

2015 Proxy Statement Radius Health, Inc. 4

Table of Contents


QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THE 2015 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS

WHAT IF I DO NOT SPECIFY HOW MY SHARES ARE TO BE VOTED?

If you submit a proxy but do not indicate any voting instructions, the persons named as proxies will vote in accordance with the recommendations of the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors' recommendations are indicated on page 2 of this proxy statement, as well as with the description of each proposal in this proxy statement.

WILL ANY OTHER BUSINESS BE CONDUCTED AT THE ANNUAL MEETING?

We know of no other business that will be presented at the Annual Meeting. If any other matter properly comes before the stockholders for a vote at the Annual Meeting, however, the proxy holders named on the Company's proxy card will vote your shares in accordance with their best judgment.

HOW MANY VOTES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE APPROVAL OF THE PROPOSALS TO BE VOTED UPON AND HOW WILL ABSTENTIONS AND BROKER NON-VOTES BE TREATED?

            
Proposal

Votes required

Effect of Votes Withheld / Abstentions and Broker Non-Votes
Proposal 1 : Election of Directors   The plurality of the votes cast. This means that the three nominees receiving the highest number of affirmative "FOR" votes will be elected as Class I Directors.   Votes withheld and broker non-votes will have no effect.
Proposal 2 : Ratification of Appointment of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm   The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority in voting power of the votes cast affirmatively or negatively (excluding abstentions) by the holders entitled to vote on the proposal.   Abstentions will have no effect. We do not expect any broker non-votes on this proposal.
Proposal 3 : Advisory Vote on the Compensation of Radius's Named Executive Officers   The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority in voting power of the votes cast affirmatively or negatively (excluding abstentions) by the holders entitled to vote on the proposal.   Abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect.
Proposal 4 : Advisory Vote on the Frequency of Future Advisory Votes on the Compensation of Radius's Named Executive Officers   The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority in voting power of the votes cast affirmatively or negatively (excluding abstentions) by the holders entitled to vote on the proposal. If no frequency receives the foregoing vote, then we will consider the frequency that receives the highest number of votes cast by the stockholders to be the frequency recommended by our stockholders.   Abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect.
Proposal 5 : Approval of Amended and Restated 2011 Equity Incentive Plan   The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority in voting power of the votes cast affirmatively or negatively (excluding abstentions) by the holders entitled to vote on the proposal.   Abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect.

WHAT IS AN ABSTENTION AND HOW WILL VOTES WITHHELD AND ABSTENTIONS BE TREATED?

A "vote withheld," in the case of the proposal regarding the election of directors, or an "abstention," in the case of the four other proposals to be voted on at the Annual Meeting, represents a stockholder's affirmative choice to decline to vote on a proposal. Votes withheld and abstentions are counted as present and entitled to vote for purposes of determining a quorum. Votes withheld have no effect on the election of directors. Abstentions have no effect on the ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP, the advisory vote on the compensation of our

2015 Proxy Statement Radius Health, Inc. 5

Table of Contents


QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THE 2015 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS

named executive officers, the advisory vote on the frequency of future advisory votes on the compensation of our named executive officers, and the amendment and restatement of our 2011 Equity Incentive Plan.

WHAT ARE BROKER NON-VOTES AND DO THEY COUNT FOR DETERMINING A QUORUM?

Generally, broker non-votes occur when shares held by a broker in "street name" for a beneficial owner are not voted with respect to a particular proposal because the broker (1) has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner and (2) lacks discretionary voting power to vote those shares. A broker is entitled to vote shares held for a beneficial owner on routine matters, such as the ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm, without instructions from the beneficial owner of those shares. On the other hand, absent instructions from the beneficial owner of such shares, a broker is not entitled to vote shares held for a beneficial owner on non-routine matters, such as the election of directors, the advisory vote on the compensation of our named executive officers, the advisory vote on the frequency of future advisory votes on the compensation of our named executive officers, and the amendment and restatement of our 2011 Equity Incentive Plan. Broker non-votes count for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present.

WHERE CAN I FIND THE VOTING RESULTS OF THE 2015 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS?

We plan to announce preliminary voting results at the Annual Meeting and we will report the final results in a Current Report on Form 8-K, which we intend to file with the SEC shortly after the Annual Meeting.

PROPOSALS TO BE VOTED ON—PROPOSAL 1
Election of Directors

At the Annual Meeting, three (3) Class I Directors are to be elected to hold office until the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held in 2018 and until such director's successor is elected and qualified or until such director's earlier death, resignation or removal.

We currently have nine (9) Directors on our Board. The proposal regarding the election of directors requires the approval of a plurality of the votes cast. This means that the three nominees receiving the highest number of affirmative "FOR" votes will be elected as Class I Directors. Votes withheld and broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of the vote on this proposal.

Our Board of Directors is currently divided into three classes with staggered, three-year terms. At each annual meeting of stockholders, the successor to each director whose term then expires will be elected to serve from the time of election and qualification until the third annual meeting of stockholders following election or such director's death, resignation or removal, whichever is earliest to occur. The current class structure is as follows: Class I, whose term currently expires at the 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and whose new term will expire at the 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders; Class II, whose term will expire at the 2016 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and whose subsequent term will expire at the 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders; and Class III, whose term will expire at the 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and whose subsequent term will expire at the 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. The current Class I Directors are Owen Hughes, Elizabeth Stoner, M.D. and Robert E. Ward; the current Class II Directors are Alan H. Auerbach, Ansbert K. Gadicke, M.D. and Martin Münchbach, Ph.D; and the current Class III Directors are Willard H. Dere, M.D., Kurt C. Graves and Anthony Rosenberg.

As indicated in our Restated Certificate of Incorporation, the authorized number of directors may be changed only by resolution of the Board of Directors. Any additional directorships resulting from an increase in the number of directors will be distributed among the three classes so that, as nearly as possible, each class will consist of one-third of the directors. Our directors may be removed only for cause by the affirmative vote of the holders of at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares of our Common Stock.

If you submit a proxy but do not indicate any voting instructions, the persons named as proxies will vote the shares of Common Stock represented by the proxy for the election as Class I Directors the persons whose names and biographies appear below. All of the persons whose names and biographies appear below are currently serving as our directors. In the event any of the nominees should become unable to serve or for good cause will not serve as a director, it is intended that votes will be cast for a substitute nominee designated by the Board of Directors or the Board may elect to reduce its size. The Board of Directors has no reason to believe that the nominees named below will be unable to serve if elected. Each of the nominees has consented to being named in this proxy statement and to serve if elected.

VOTE REQUIRED

The proposal regarding the election of directors requires the approval of a plurality of the votes cast. This means that the three nominees receiving the highest number of affirmative "FOR" votes will be elected as Class I Directors. Votes withheld and broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of the vote on this proposal.

PROPOSAL 2
Ratification of Appointment of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

Our Audit Committee has appointed Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2015. Our Board has directed that this appointment be submitted to our stockholders for ratification. Although ratification of our appointment of Ernst & Young LLP is not required, we value the opinions of our stockholders and believe that stockholder ratification of our appointment is a good corporate governance practice.

Ernst & Young LLP also served as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014. Neither the accounting firm nor any of its members has any direct or indirect financial interest in or any connection with us in any capacity other than as our auditors, providing audit and non-audit related services. A representative of Ernst & Young LLP is expected to attend the Annual Meeting, and will have the opportunity to make a statement and be available to respond to appropriate questions from stockholders.

In the event that the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP is not ratified by the stockholders, the Audit Committee will consider this fact when it appoints the independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2016. Even if the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP is ratified, the Audit Committee retains the discretion to appoint a different independent auditor at any time if it determines that such a change is in the interests of Radius.

VOTE REQUIRED

This proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority in voting power of the votes cast affirmatively or negatively (excluding abstentions) by the holders entitled to vote on the proposal. Abstentions will have no effect on the outcome of this proposal. Because brokers have discretionary authority to vote on the ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP, we do not expect any broker non-votes in connection with this proposal.

Report of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors

The Audit Committee has reviewed Radius's audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 and has discussed these financial statements with management and Radius's independent registered public accounting firm. The Audit Committee has also received from, and discussed with, Radius's independent registered public accounting firm various communications that such independent registered public accounting firm is required to provide to the Audit Committee, including the matters required to be discussed by statement on Auditing Standards No. 16, as adopted by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board ("PCAOB").

Radius's independent registered public accounting firm also provided the Audit Committee with a formal written statement required by PCAOB Rule 3526 ( Communications with Audit Committees Concerning Independence ) describing all relationships between the independent registered public accounting firm and Radius, including the disclosures required by the applicable requirements of the PCAOB regarding the independent registered public accounting firm's communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence. In addition, the Audit Committee discussed with the independent registered public accounting firm its independence from Radius. Based on its discussions with management and the independent registered public accounting firm, and its review of the representations and information provided by management and the independent registered public accounting firm, the Audit Committee recommended to the Board of Directors that the audited financial statements be included in Radius's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014.

AUDIT FEES

Audit fees consist of fees for the audit of our consolidated financial statements and review of the unaudited interim financial statements included in our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q during the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013.

AUDIT-RELATED FEES

Audit-related fees consist of fees for assurance and related services that are reasonably related to the performance of the audit and the review of our financial statements and which are not reported under "Audit Fees." Audit-related fees reported for the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 relate to the review of registration statements on Form S-1 and Form S-3 and current reports on Form 8-K.

TAX FEES

Tax fees comprise fees for tax compliance, tax advice and tax planning services. Tax compliance services, which relate to the review of our U.S. tax returns, accounted for $12,500 and $13,000 of the total tax fees for fiscal year 2014 and 2013, respectively.

AUDIT COMMITTEE PRE-APPROVAL POLICY AND PROCEDURES

The Audit Committee has adopted a policy (the "Pre-Approval Policy") which sets forth the procedures and conditions pursuant to which audit and non-audit services proposed to be performed by the independent auditor may be pre-approved. The Pre-Approval Policy generally provides that we will not engage Ernst & Young LLP to render any audit, audit-related, tax or permissible non-audit service unless the service is either (i) explicitly approved by the Audit Committee ("specific pre-approval") or (ii) entered into pursuant to the pre-approval policies and procedures described in the Pre-Approval Policy ("general pre-approval"). Unless a type of service to be provided by Ernst & Young LLP has received general pre-approval under the Pre-Approval Policy, it requires specific pre-approval by the Audit Committee. Any proposed services exceeding pre-approved cost levels or budgeted amounts will also require specific pre-approval. On an annual basis, the Audit Committee reviews and generally pre-approves the services (and related fee levels or budgeted amounts) that may be provided by Ernst & Young LLP without first obtaining specific pre-approval from the Audit Committee. The Audit Committee may revise the list of general pre-approved services from time to time, based on subsequent determinations.

PROPOSAL 3
Advisory Vote on the Compensation of our Named Executive Officers

This Proposal 3 gives our stockholders the opportunity to vote to approve, on a non-binding advisory basis, the compensation of our named executive officers.

As described in detail under the heading "Compensation Discussion and Analysis," our executive compensation programs are designed to attract, motivate, and retain our named executive officers, who are critical to our success. Please read the "Compensation Discussion and Analysis" beginning on page 36 of this proxy statement for additional details about our executive compensation programs. We are asking our stockholders to indicate their support for our named executive officer compensation as described in this proxy statement. This proposal, commonly known as a "say-on-pay" proposal, gives our stockholders the opportunity to express their views on the compensation of our named executive officers. This vote is not intended to address any specific item of compensation, but rather the overall compensation of our named executive officers and our compensation philosophy, policies and practices for named executive officers described in this proxy statement. Accordingly, we will ask our stockholders to vote "FOR" the following resolution at the Annual Meeting:

The say-on-pay vote is advisory, and therefore not binding on the Company, the Board or the Compensation Committee. However, the Board and the Compensation Committee value the opinions of our stockholders and intend to consider our stockholders' views regarding our executive compensation programs.

VOTE REQUIRED

This proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority in voting power of the votes cast affirmatively or negatively (excluding abstentions) by the holders entitled to vote on the proposal. Abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of this proposal.

PROPOSAL 4
Advisory Vote on the Frequency of Future Advisory Votes on the Compensation of our Named Executive Officers

This Proposal 4 gives our stockholders the opportunity to vote, on a non-binding basis, to advise our Board how frequently we should hold an advisory vote on the compensation of our named executive officers. By voting on this Proposal 4, stockholders may indicate whether they would prefer an advisory vote on named executive officer compensation once every one, two, or three years.

After careful consideration of this Proposal 4, the Board has determined that an advisory vote on executive compensation that occurs every year is the most appropriate alternative for the Company, and therefore the Board recommends that you vote for a one-year interval for the advisory vote on executive compensation.

In formulating its recommendation, the Board considered that an annual advisory vote on executive compensation will allow our stockholders to provide us with their direct input on our compensation philosophy, policies and practices as disclosed in the proxy statement every year. We understand that our stockholders may have different views as to what is the best approach for the Company, and we look forward to hearing from our stockholders on this Proposal.

You may cast your vote for your preferred voting frequency by choosing the option of one year, two years, three years or you may abstain from voting on this proposal.

VOTE REQUIRED

This proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority in voting power of the votes cast affirmatively or negatively (excluding abstentions) by the holders entitled to vote on the proposal. If no frequency receives the foregoing vote, then we will consider the frequency that receives the highest number of votes cast by the stockholders to be the frequency recommended by our stockholders. However, because this vote is advisory and not binding on the Board or the Company, the Board may decide that it is in the best interests of the Company to hold an advisory vote on executive compensation more or less frequently than the option approved by our stockholders. Abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of this proposal.

PROPOSAL 5
Approval of Amendment and Restatement of 2011 Equity Incentive Plan

OVERVIEW

In this Proposal 5, we are requesting stockholders approve the amendment and restatement of the Radius Health, Inc. 2011 Equity Incentive Plan, or the 2011 Plan, to (1) increase the number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance under the 2011 Plan by 1,600,000 shares, (2) approve the material terms of performance goals that may apply to awards granted under the 2011 Plan intended to qualify as performance-based compensation under Section 162(m) of the Code, (3) remove our ability without stockholder approval to reduce the exercise price of stock options and stock appreciation rights granted under the 2011 Plan or replace those awards with other awards at a time when the exercise price of the stock option or stock appreciation right exceeds the fair market value of our Common Stock and (4) modify the share counting provisions of the 2011 Plan to remove circumstances under which shares subject to stock under the 2011 Plan may again become available for issuance so that certain shares tendered or withheld in satisfaction of withholding obligations or payment of an award's exercise price are not automatically available again for issuance under the 2011 Plan. The Board approved the amendment and restatement of the 2011 Plan on March 12, 2015 (including the performance criteria upon which performance goals may be based), subject to and effective upon stockholder approval at the annual meeting. The 2011 Plan, as amended and restated if this Proposal 5 is approved, is described in more detail below. If this Proposal 5 is not approved by our stockholders, the amendment and restatement of the 2011 Plan will not become effective, but the 2011 Plan will remain in effect in accordance with its present terms.

AMENDMENT AND RESTATEMENT OF THE 2011 PLAN

On March 12, 2015, the Board approved the amendment and restatement of the 2011 Plan, subject to and effective upon approval of the amendment and restatement by our stockholders, to permit the Company to continue using the 2011 Plan to achieve the Company's performance, recruiting, retention and incentive goals. We believe that continued use of the 2011 Plan is essential to our success. Equity awards are intended to motivate high levels of performance and align the interests of our directors, employees and consultants with those of our stockholders by giving directors, employees and consultants the perspective of an owner with an equity stake in the Company and providing a means of recognizing their contributions to the success of the Company. The Board and management believe that equity awards are necessary to remain competitive in our industry and are essential to recruiting and retaining the highly qualified employees who help the Company meet its goals.

Although we have not adopted a policy that all compensation paid to our executive officers must be deductible, the amendment and restatement of the 2011 Plan is also intended to allow us to provide performance-based compensation that will be tax deductible by us without regard to the limits of Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code. Therefore, for purposes of Section 162(m), we are asking our shareholders to approve the list of performance criteria that may be used for purposes of granting awards that are intended to qualify as performance-based compensation under Section 162(m), as described below under the heading "—Performance-Based Compensation under Section 162(m) of the Code," in the event we choose to seek to structure compensation in a manner that will satisfy the performance-based compensation exception to Section 162(m). Should we choose to do so, stockholder approval of these criteria would enable us to satisfy this exception and deduct compensation associated with future performance-based awards to certain executives.

Generally, Section 162(m) limits the federal income tax deductions a publicly held company may claim for compensation in excess of $1 million paid in a given year to its chief executive officer and certain of its other most highly-compensated executive officers other than its chief financial officer (these officers are generally referred to as the "covered employees"). Performance-based compensation that meets certain requirements is not counted against the $1 million deductibility cap. Stock options and stock appreciation rights that may be granted under the 2011 Plan by our Compensation Committee generally should qualify as performance-based compensation. Other awards that we

2015 Proxy Statement Radius Health, Inc. 17

PROPOSAL 5—APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT AND RESTATEMENT OF 2011 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

may grant under the 2011 Plan, as amended and restated, may qualify as performance-based compensation if the payment, retention or vesting of the award is subject to the achievement during a performance period of performance goals selected by the Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee retains the discretion to set the level of performance for a given performance measure under a performance-based award. For awards to qualify as performance-based compensation, they must also be in amounts that are within the individual award limits set forth in the amended and restated 2011 Plan and stockholders must approve the material terms of the performance goals every five years. Stockholder approval does not guarantee that incentive compensation that we pay to our covered employees will qualify as performance-based compensation for purposes of Section 162(m), but will permit the Compensation Committee to seek to structure incentive compensation to meet the performance-based compensation requirements if it chooses to do so. If the amendment and restatement of the 2011 Plan is not approved by the shareholders, the 2011 Plan will remain in effect in accordance with its present terms and we may continue to make grants under it.

The total number of shares reserved for issuance under the 2011 Plan before giving effect to the amendment and restatement equals the sum of (a) 3,675,446 shares and (b) any shares of Common Stock that as of November 7, 2011 were available for issuance under the Radius Health, Inc. 2003 Long-Term Incentive Plan, or the 2003 Plan, or subject to awards under the 2003 Plan which are forfeited or lapse unexercised and which are not issued under the 2003 Plan, subject to a maximum aggregate number of shares issuable under the 2011 Plan of 4,254,385. Set forth below is the number of shares available for issuance pursuant to outstanding and future equity awards under the 2011 Plan as of March 13, 2015:

Shares subject to outstanding stock option awards 1

  3,154,232  

Shares issued pursuant to awards

    4,596  

Shares available for issuance pursuant to future awards

Only stock option awards are outstanding under the 2011 Plan.

For additional information regarding equity awards outstanding and available for future grants as of December 31, 2014, see "Executive Compensation—Equity Compensation Plan Information." If this Proposal 5 is approved, an additional 1,600,000 shares will become available for issuance under the 2011 Plan.

In addition, the amendment and restatement of the 2011 Plan will implement the following plan changes that we believe are consistent with best practices in equity compensation for our company:

DETERMINATION OF ADDITIONAL SHARES UNDER THE 2011 PLAN

In determining to approve the amendment and restatement of the 2011 Plan, the Compensation Committee reviewed an analysis prepared by Radford, the Company's compensation consultant. Specifically, the Compensation Committee considered that that:

PROPOSAL 5—APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT AND RESTATEMENT OF 2011 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

In consideration of these factors, and our belief that the ability to continue granting equity compensation is vital to our attracting and retaining employees, we believe that the amendment and restatement of the 2011 Plan and the size of the share reserve under the 2011 Plan after giving effect to the amendment and restatement are reasonable, appropriate and in the best interests of the company at this time. The Board will not create a subcommittee to evaluate the risks and benefits for issuing the additional authorized shares requested.

SUMMARY OF THE 2011 PLAN

This section summarizes certain principal features of the 2011 Plan, as amended and restated subject to stockholder approval. The summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the amended and restated 2011 Plan, which is attached to this proxy statement as Exhibit A.

The 2011 Plan provides for the grant of stock options intended to qualify as incentive stock options under the Internal Revenue Code, or ISOs, to employees, and for the grant of nonqualified stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units, stock appreciation rights, stock grants, performance units and performance awards to employees, consultants and non-employee directors, for the purposes of encouraging their ownership of our Common Stock and providing additional incentives to promote the success of our business through the grant of awards of or pertaining to the Common Stock.

Securities Subject to the 2011 Plan

If the amendment and restatement of the 2011 Plan is approved, the number of shares of Common Stock reserved for issuance under the 2011 Plan will be equal to the sum of (i) 5,275,446 shares and (ii) any shares of our Common Stock which as of the November 7, 2011 were available for issuance under the 2003 Plan or subject to awards under the 2003 Plan which are forfeited or lapse unexercised and which are not issued under the 2003 Plan, subject to a maximum aggregate number of shares issuable under the 2011 Plan of 5,854,385. The maximum number of shares that may be issued pursuant to ISOs is 5,854,385. The shares of Common Stock covered by the 2011 Plan are authorized but unissued shares, treasury shares or Common Stock purchased on the open market.

To the extent that an option or stock-settled stock appreciation right terminates, expires or lapses for any reason or is cancelled without having been exercised in full or to the extent any other award is forfeited, any shares subject to the award (to the extent of such termination, expiration, lapse, cancellation or forfeiture) may be used again for new grants under the 2011 Plan. However, the 2011 Plan does not allow the share pool available for awards to be

PROPOSAL 5—APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT AND RESTATEMENT OF 2011 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

recharged or replenished with previously owned shares that are tendered to satisfy the exercise price of a stock option or shares that are tendered or withheld to satisfy a tax withholding obligation.

Individual Award Limits

The maximum number of shares of our Common Stock that may be subject to one or more awards granted to any participant pursuant to the 2011 Plan during any calendar year is 548,245 shares of Common Stock. However, this number may be adjusted to take into account equity restructurings and certain other corporate transactions as described below. The maximum amount that may be paid in cash to any participant during any calendar year pursuant to awards granted under the 2011 Plan that are initially payable in cash is $2,000,000.

The 2011 Plan provides that the Compensation Committee administers the 2011 Plan, although the Board may exercise any powers and responsibilities assigned to the Compensation Committee at any time. The Compensation Committee has the authority to interpret the 2011 Plan, including the power to determine eligibility, the types and sizes of awards, the price, timing and other terms and conditions of awards and the acceleration or waiver of any vesting or forfeiture restriction, subject to the limitations of the 2011 Plan. The Compensation Committee may delegate to a committee of one or more members of the Board or one or more executive officers the authority to grant awards to non-officer employees and consultants, in accordance with any guidelines as the Compensation Committee may determine.

Eligibility

Persons eligible to participate in the 2011 Plan include employees, consultants and non-employee directors of the Company and its affiliates, as determined by the Compensation Committee. As of March 13, 2015, approximately 26 employees and 8 non-employee directors were eligible to receive awards under the 2011 Plan. In addition, the Company frequently uses the services of individual consultants on an as-needed basis; however, consultants are not generally considered for awards under the 2011 Plan. As of March 13, 2015, five consultants held outstanding awards under the 2011 Plan. Only employees of the Company and certain of its parent and subsidiary corporations, should we have any in the future, are eligible to receive grants of options intended to qualify as ISOs.

No Repricings or Exchanges without Stockholder Approval

The 2011 Plan requires the Company to obtain stockholder approval prior to (a) reducing the exercise price per share of an outstanding stock option or stock appreciation right awarded under the 2011 Plan or (b) cancelling an outstanding stock option or stock appreciation right in exchange for cash or another award under the 2011 Plan at a time when the price per share of the stock option or stock appreciation right exceeds the fair market value of our Common Stock (unless the cancellation and exchange occurs in connection with a corporate transaction).

Stock Options

The 2011 Plan authorizes the grant of stock options, including ISOs and nonqualified stock options. Under the 2011 Plan, the exercise price of ISOs granted pursuant to the 2011 Plan will not be less than 100% of the fair market value of our Common Stock on the date of grant (as determined under the 2011 Plan), and the exercise price of nonqualified stock options granted pursuant to the 2011 Plan will be determined by the Compensation Committee. Stock options are subject to such vesting and exercisability conditions as are determined by the Compensation Committee and set forth in a written stock option agreement. In no event may an ISO have a term extending beyond the tenth anniversary of the date of grant. ISOs granted to any person who owns, as of the date of grant, stock possessing more than 10% of the total combined voting power of all classes of the Company's stock are required to have an exercise price that is not less than 110% of the fair market value of our Common Stock on the date of grant and may not have a term extending beyond the fifth anniversary of the date of grant.

Stock Appreciation Rights

A stock appreciation right is the right to receive payment of an amount equal to the excess of the fair market value of a share of stock on the date of exercise of the stock appreciation right over the grant price of the stock appreciation right. The grant price of each stock appreciation right granted under the 2011 Plan will be no less than the fair market value of a share of our Common Stock on the date of grant of the stock appreciation right (as determined under the 2011 Plan). The Compensation Committee is authorized to issue SARs in such amounts and on such terms and conditions as it may determine, consistent with the terms of the 2011 Plan.

Restricted Stock

Restricted stock is the grant of shares of our Common Stock at a price, if any, determined by the Compensation Committee, that are nontransferable and may be subject to forfeiture until specified vesting conditions are met. Restricted stock will be evidenced by a written agreement. During the period of restriction, restricted stock is subject to restrictions and vesting requirements, as provided by the Compensation Committee. The restrictions may lapse in accordance with a schedule or other conditions determined by the Compensation Committee.

Restricted Stock Units

A restricted stock unit provides for the issuance of a share of our Common Stock at a future date upon the satisfaction of specific conditions set forth in the applicable award agreement. The Compensation Committee will specify, or permit the restricted stock unit holder to elect, the conditions and dates upon which payments under the restricted stock units will made, which dates may not be earlier than the date as of which the restricted stock units vest and which conditions and dates will be subject to compliance with Section 409A of the Code. On the distribution dates, the Company will transfer to the participant one unrestricted, fully transferable share of our Common Stock (or the fair market value of one such share of Common Stock in cash) for each restricted stock unit scheduled to be paid out on such date and not previously forfeited.

Performance Units

Performance units represent the participant's right to receive an amount, based on the value of the Common Stock, if performance goals established by the Compensation Committee are achieved. The Compensation Committee will determine the applicable performance period, the performance goals and such other conditions that apply to the performance unit.

Performance Awards

A performance award is a cash bonus award, stock bonus award, performance award or incentive award that is paid in cash, shares of Common Stock or a combination of both, as determined by the Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee will determine the applicable performance period, the performance goals and such other conditions that apply to the performance award. The Compensation Committee will also determine whether performance awards are intended to be performance-based compensation with the meaning of Section 162(m) of the Code.

Stock Grants

A stock grant is a grant in the form of shares of Common Stock. The number or value of shares of any stock grant will be determined by the Compensation Committee.

Dividends, Dividend Equivalents

The 2011 Plan authorizes the Compensation Committee to provide a participant with the right to receive dividends or dividend equivalents with respect to shares of Common Stock covered by an award granted under the 2011 Plan. Dividends and dividend equivalents may be settled in cash or shares of Common Stock, as determined by the Compensation Committee.

PROPOSAL 5—APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT AND RESTATEMENT OF 2011 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

Payment Methods

Under the 2011 Plan, payments made upon exercise of an option may be made by cash or check, if the Common Stock is traded on an established market, through a formal cashless exercise program authorized by the Company in which a market sell order is placed with a broker with respect to shares of Common Stock then-issuable upon exercise or vesting of an award, and the broker is directed to pay a sufficient portion of the net proceeds of the sale to the Company in satisfaction of the aggregate payments required (provided that payment of such proceeds is then made to the Company upon settlement of such sale), or , subject to the approval of the Compensation Committee: (1) by shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to the award or previously held, or (2) by such other legal consideration deemed acceptable by the Compensation Committee.

Performance-Based Compensation under Section 162(m) of the Code

The Compensation Committee will determine whether specific performance awards are intended to constitute "qualified performance-based compensation" within the meaning of Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code and will have discretion to pay compensation that is not qualified performance-based compensation and that is not tax deductible. Under Section 162(m), a "covered employee" is the Company's chief executive officer and the three other most highly compensated officers of the Company other than the chief financial officer. Section 162(m) imposes a $1 million cap on the compensation deduction that the Company may take in respect of compensation paid to covered employees; however, compensation that qualifies as qualified performance-based compensation is excluded from the calculation of the $1 million cap.

In order to constitute qualified performance-based compensation under Section 162(m), in addition to certain other requirements, the relevant amounts must be payable only upon the attainment of pre-established, objective performance goals set by our Compensation Committee and based on shareholder-approved performance criteria. In asking our stockholders to approve the amendment and restatement of the 2011 Plan, we are also requesting our stockholders approve the below performance criteria to allow the Company to qualify awards as qualified performance-based compensation.

The 2011 Plan includes the following performance criteria that may be considered by the Compensation Committee when granting performance-based awards: cash flow (before or after dividends), earnings per share (including, without limitation, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), stock price, return on equity, stockholder return or total stockholder return, return on capital (including, without limitation, return on total capital or return on invested capital), return on investment, return on assets or net assets, market capitalization, economic value added, debt leverage (debt to capital), revenue, sales or net sales, backlog, income, pre-tax income or net income, operating income or pre-tax profit, operating profit, net operating profit or economic profit, gross margin, operating margin or profit margin, return on operating revenue or return on operating assets, cash from operations, operating ratio, operating revenue, market share improvement, general and administrative expenses and customer service. Any of the foregoing performance criteria may be measured with respect to us, any subsidiary, division, business unit or individual, either in absolute terms or relative to a pre-established target, to previous years' results or to a designated comparison group. The Compensation Committee will objectively define the manner of calculating the performance criteria it selects to use for awards intended to constitute qualified performance-based compensation, including whether or to what extent there will not be taken into account any of the following events that occur during a performance period: asset write-downs, litigation, claims, judgments or settlements, the effect of changes in tax law, accounting principles or other such laws or provisions affecting reported results, accruals for reorganization and restructuring programs and any extraordinary, unusual, non-recurring or non-comparable items (A) as described in Accounting Standard Codification Section 225-20, (B) as described in management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations appearing in the Company's Annual Report to stockholders for the applicable year, or (C) as publicly announced by the Company in a press release or conference call relating to the Company's results of operations or financial conditions for a completed quarterly or annual fiscal period. With regard to a particular performance period, the Compensation Committee will have the discretion to select the length of the performance period, the types of performance-based awards to be granted, and the performance goals that will be used to measure the performance for the period.

PROPOSAL 5—APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT AND RESTATEMENT OF 2011 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

Forfeiture of Unvested Awards; Leave of Absence

Upon the termination of service of the holder of an option or stock appreciation right, unless otherwise provided by the Compensation Committee, the award generally will expire on a date not later than three months after the termination of service. Except as otherwise determined by the Compensation Committee, in the event that the employment or services of the holder of an award is terminated, the unvested portion of the award will generally be forfeited or may be subject to repurchase by the Company, and will cease to vest or become exercisable after the termination.

The Compensation Committee may provide that an award will continue to vest for some or all of the period of a leave of absence, or that vesting of an award will be tolled during a leave of absence, consistent with applicable law.

Transferability

Generally, awards under the 2011 Plan may only be transferred by will or the laws of descent and distribution, unless and until such award has been exercised or the shares underlying such award have been issued and all restrictions applicable to such shares have lapsed. However, subject to certain terms and conditions, the Compensation Committee may permit a holder to transfer a nonqualified stock option or shares of restricted stock to any "family member" under applicable securities laws.

Adjustments

In the event of a declaration of a stock dividend, a stock split, a reverse stock split, a recapitalization, a reclassification, a reorganization or a similar occurrence, the Compensation Committee will make appropriate adjustments to:

Corporate Transactions

In the event of a "change of control" of the Company (as defined in the 2011 Plan), the Compensation Committee will take any action it deems necessary or appropriate, including to accelerate an award in whole or in part. A stock appreciation right granted in tandem with a stock option that can only be exercised during limited periods following a change of control of the Company may entitle the holder to receive an amount based on the highest price paid or offered for our Common Stock in a transaction relating to the change of control or paid during the thirty-day period immediately preceding the change of control.

The Compensation Committee also has the authority under the 2011 Plan to take certain other actions with respect to outstanding awards in the event of a corporate transaction, including provision for the cash-out, termination, assumption or substitution of such awards.

Upon a liquidation or dissolution of the Company, except as otherwise provided in an applicable award agreement or another agreement between the award holder and the Company, all forfeiture restrictions and/or performance goals with respect to an award will automatically be deemed terminated or satisfied, as applicable.

Expiration, Termination and Amendment

The Board may terminate, amend or modify the 2011 Plan and the Compensation Committee may amend the terms of outstanding awards at any time, subject to the terms of the 2011 Plan. However, stockholder approval of any amendment is required to the extent necessary to comply with applicable laws or the rules of any relevant stock exchange. No amendment may impair the rights under an outstanding award without the holder's consent unless,

2015 Proxy Statement Radius Health, Inc. 23

PROPOSAL 5—APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT AND RESTATEMENT OF 2011 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

prior to a change of control, the Compensation Committee determines the amendment is required or advisable to satisfy any law or regulation or avoid adverse financial accounting consequences or that the amendment is not reasonably likely to significantly diminish the benefits provided under the award or that any such diminution has been adequately compensated.

The term of the 2011 Plan will expire on March 11, 2025, unless earlier terminated by the Board.

FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSEQUENCES

The following is general summary as of this date of the federal income tax consequences to us and to U.S. participants for awards of stock options granted under the 2011 Plan. The federal tax laws may change and the federal, state and local tax consequences for any participant will depend upon his or her individual circumstances. Tax consequences for any particular individual may be different. This summary does not purport to be complete, and does not discuss state, local or non-U.S. tax consequences.

Non-qualified Stock Options.  The grant of a non-qualified stock option under the 2011 Plan is not expected to result in any federal income tax consequences to the participant or to the Company. Upon exercise of a non-qualified stock option, the participant is subject to income taxes at the rate applicable to ordinary compensation income on the difference between the option exercise price and the fair market value of the shares at the time of exercise. This income is subject to withholding for federal income and employment tax purposes. The Company is expected to be entitled to an income tax deduction in the amount of the income recognized by the participant, subject to possible limitations imposed by the Code and so long as the Company withholds the appropriate taxes with respect to such income (if required) and the participant's total compensation is deemed reasonable in amount. Any gain or loss on the participant's subsequent disposition of the shares of Common Stock will receive long or short-term capital gain or loss treatment, depending on whether the shares are held for more than one year following exercise. The Company does not receive a tax deduction for any such gain.

Incentive Stock Options.  The grant of an incentive stock option under the 2011 Plan will not result in any federal income tax consequences to the participant or to the Company. A participant recognizes no federal taxable income upon exercising an incentive stock option (subject to the alternative minimum tax rules discussed below), and the Company receives no deduction at the time of exercise. In the event of a disposition of stock acquired upon exercise of an incentive stock option, the tax consequences depend upon how long the participant has held the shares of Common Stock. If the participant does not dispose of the shares within two years after the incentive stock option was granted, nor within one year after the incentive stock option was exercised, the participant will recognize a long-term capital gain (or loss) equal to the difference between the sale price of the shares and the exercise price. The Company is not entitled to any deduction under these circumstances.

If the participant fails to satisfy either of the foregoing holding periods (referred to as a "disqualifying disposition"), he or she must recognize ordinary income in the year of the disposition. The amount of ordinary income generally is the lesser of (i) the difference between the amount realized on the disposition and the exercise price or (ii) the difference between the fair market value of the stock at the time of exercise and the exercise price. Any gain in excess of the amount taxed as ordinary income will be treated as a long or short-term capital gain, depending on whether the stock was held for more than one year. The Company, in the year of the disqualifying disposition, is expected to be entitled to a deduction equal to the amount of ordinary income recognized by the participant, subject to possible limitations imposed by the Code and so long as the participant's total compensation is deemed reasonable in amount.

The "spread" under an incentive stock option—i.e., the difference between the fair market value of the shares at exercise and the exercise price—is classified as an item of adjustment in the year of exercise for purposes of the alternative minimum tax. If a participant's alternative minimum tax liability exceeds such participant's regular income tax liability, the participant will owe the larger amount of taxes. In order to avoid the application of alternative minimum tax with respect to incentive stock options, the participant must sell the shares within the calendar year in which the incentive stock options are exercised. However, such a sale of shares within the year of exercise will constitute a disqualifying disposition, as described above.

PROPOSAL 5—APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT AND RESTATEMENT OF 2011 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

Stock Appreciation Rights.  The grant of a stock appreciation right is expected to have no federal income tax consequences to either the participant or the Company. Generally, the participant will recognize ordinary income subject to withholding upon the receipt of payment pursuant to a stock appreciation right in an amount equal to the aggregate amount of cash and the fair market value of any Common Stock received. Subject to the deduction limitations described below, the employer generally is expected to be entitled to a corresponding tax deduction equal to the amount includible in the participant's income.

Restricted Stock.  If the restrictions on an award of shares of restricted stock are of a nature that the shares are both subject to a substantial risk of forfeiture and are not freely transferable (within the meaning of Section 83 of the Internal Revenue Code), the participant will not recognize income for federal income tax purposes at the time of the award unless the participant affirmatively elects to include the fair market value of the shares of restricted stock on the date of the award, less any amount paid for the shares, in gross income for the year of the award pursuant to Section 83(b) of the Internal Revenue Code. In the absence of this election, the participant will be required to include in income for federal income tax purposes on the date the shares either become freely transferable or are no longer subject to a substantial risk of forfeiture (within the meaning of Section 83), the fair market value of the shares of restricted stock on such date, less any amount paid for the shares. The Company is expected to be entitled to a deduction at the time of income recognition to the participant in an amount equal to the amount the participant is required to include in income with respect to the shares, subject to the deduction limitations described below. If a Section 83(b) election is made within 30 days after the date the restricted stock is received, the participant will recognize ordinary income at the time of the receipt of the restricted stock, and the Company is expected to be entitled to a corresponding deduction, equal to the fair market value of the shares at the time, less the amount paid, if any, by the participant for the restricted stock. If a Section 83(b) election is made, no additional income will be recognized by the participant upon the lapse of restrictions on the restricted stock, but, if the restricted stock is subsequently forfeited, the participant may not deduct the income that was recognized pursuant to the Section 83(b) election at the time of the receipt of the restricted stock.

Dividends paid to a participant holding restricted stock before the expiration of the restriction period will be additional compensation taxable as ordinary income to the participant subject to withholding, unless the participant made an election under Section 83(b). Subject to the deduction limitations described below, the Company is expected to be entitled to a corresponding tax deduction equal to the dividends includible in the participant's income as compensation. If the participant has made a Section 83(b) election, the dividends will be dividend income, rather than additional compensation, to the participant.

If the restrictions on an award of restricted stock are not of a nature that the shares are both subject to a substantial risk of forfeiture and not freely transferable, within the meaning of Section 83, the participant will recognize ordinary income for federal income tax purposes at the time of the transfer of the shares in an amount equal to the fair market value of the shares of restricted stock on the date of the transfer, less any amount paid therefore. The Company will generally be entitled to a deduction at that time in an amount equal to the amount the participant is required to include in income with respect to the shares, subject to the deduction limitations described below.

Restricted Stock Units.  There are expected to be no federal income tax consequences to either the participant or the Company upon the grant of restricted stock units. Generally, the participant will recognize ordinary income subject to withholding upon the receipt of cash and/or transfer of shares of Common Stock in payment of the restricted stock units in an amount equal to the aggregate of the cash received and the fair market value of the Common Stock so transferred. Subject to the deduction limitations described below, the employer generally is expected to be entitled to a corresponding tax deduction equal to the amount includible in the participant's income.

Performance Awards.  There are expected to be no federal income tax consequences to either the participant or the Company upon the grant of performance awards. Generally, the participant will recognize ordinary income subject to withholding upon the receipt of cash and/or shares of Common Stock in payment of performance awards in an amount equal to the aggregate of the cash received and the fair market value of the Common Stock so transferred. Subject to the deduction limitations described below, the employer is expected to be entitled to a corresponding tax deduction equal to the amount includible in the participant's income.

PROPOSAL 5—APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT AND RESTATEMENT OF 2011 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

Dividend Equivalents.  Generally, a participant will recognize ordinary income subject to withholding upon the payment of any dividend equivalents paid with respect to an award in an amount equal to the cash the participant receives. Subject to the deduction limitations described below, the Company generally is expected to be entitled to a corresponding tax deduction equal to the amount includible in the participant's income.

Limitations on the Employer's Compensation Deduction.  Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code limits the deduction certain employers may take for otherwise deductible compensation payable to certain executive officers of the employer to the extent the compensation paid to such an officer for the year exceeds $1 million, unless the compensation is performance-based, is approved by the employer's shareholders, and meets certain other criteria, as described above under the heading "—Performance-Based Compensation under Section 162(m) of the Code."

Excess Parachute Payments.  Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code limits the deduction that the Company may take for otherwise deductible compensation payable to certain individuals if the compensation constitutes an "excess parachute payment." Excess parachute payments arise from payments made to disqualified individuals that are in the nature of compensation and are contingent on changes in ownership or control of the employer or certain affiliates. Accelerated vesting or payment of awards under the amended and restated 2011 Plan upon a change in ownership or control of the Company or its affiliates could result in excess parachute payments. In addition to the deduction limitation applicable to the employer, a disqualified individual receiving an excess parachute payment is subject to a 20% excise tax on the amount thereof.

Application of Section 409A of the Code.  Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code imposes an additional 20% tax and interest on an individual receiving non-qualified deferred compensation under a plan that fails to satisfy certain requirements. For purposes of Section 409A, "non-qualified deferred compensation" includes equity-based incentive programs, including some stock options, stock appreciation rights and restricted stock unit programs. Generally speaking, Section 409A does not apply to incentive stock options, non-discounted non-qualified stock options and appreciation rights if no deferral is provided beyond exercise, or restricted stock.

The awards made pursuant to the 2011 Plan, as amended and restated, are expected to be designed in a manner intended to comply with the requirements of Section 409A to the extent the awards granted under the plan are not exempt from Section 409A. However, if the 2011 Plan fails to comply with Section 409A in operation, a participant could be subject to the additional taxes and interest.

PLAN BENEFITS

Awards under the 2011 Plan, as amended and restated, are subject to the discretion of the Compensation Committee and, other than awards that will be made automatically under our non-employee director compensation program if the program is not amended, no determinations have been made by the Compensation Committee as to any future awards that may be granted pursuant to the 2011 Plan. Therefore, it is not possible to determine the benefits that will be received in the future by participants in the 2011 Plan.

Corporate Governance

GENERAL

Our Board of Directors has adopted Corporate Governance Guidelines, a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and charters for our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, Audit Committee and Compensation Committee to assist the Board in the exercise of its responsibilities and to serve as a framework for the effective governance of Radius. You can access our current committee charters and our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics in the "Corporate Governance" section of the "Investors" page of our website located at www.radiuspharm.com, or by writing to our Secretary at our offices at 950 Winter Street, Waltham, Massachusetts, 02451.

BOARD COMPOSITION

Our Board of Directors currently consists of nine (9) members: Alan H. Auerbach, Willard H. Dere, M.D., Ansbert K. Gadicke, M.D., Kurt C. Graves, Owen Hughes, Martin Münchbach, Ph.D., Anthony Rosenberg, Elizabeth Stoner, M.D. and Robert E. Ward. As indicated in our Restated Certificate of Incorporation, the authorized number of directors may be changed only by resolution of the Board of Directors. Any additional directorships resulting from an increase in the number of directors will be distributed among the three classes so that, as nearly as possible, each class will consist of one-third of the directors. Our directors may be removed only for cause by the affirmative vote of the holders of at least two-thirds of the outstanding shares of our Common Stock.

Our Board of Directors is currently divided into three classes with staggered, three-year terms. At each annual meeting of stockholders, the successor to each director whose term then expires will be elected to serve from the time of election and qualification until the third annual meeting following election or such director's death, resignation or removal, whichever is earliest to occur.

DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE

Our Board of Directors has affirmatively determined that each of Alan H. Auerbach, Willard H. Dere, M.D., Ansbert K. Gadicke, M.D., Kurt C. Graves, Owen Hughes, Martin Münchbach, Ph.D., Anthony Rosenberg and Elizabeth Stoner, M.D. is an "independent director," as defined under NASDAQ rules. In evaluating and determining the independence of the directors, the Board of Directors considered the relationships that each such director has with our company and all other facts and circumstances that the Board of Directors deemed relevant in determining their independence, including the beneficial ownership of our capital stock by each such director.

DIRECTOR CANDIDATES

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for searching for qualified director candidates for election to the Board and filling vacancies on the Board. To facilitate the search process, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may solicit our current directors and executives for the names of potentially qualified candidates or ask directors and executives to pursue their own business contacts for the names of potentially qualified candidates. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may also consult with outside advisors or retain search firms to assist in the search for qualified candidates, or consider director candidates recommended by our stockholders. In 2014 and to date in 2015, the Company engaged and paid a fee to a third party firm to identify potential director nominees. This firm assisted our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee in identifying Willard H. Dere, M.D. Once potential candidates are identified, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee reviews the backgrounds of those candidates, evaluates candidates' independence from Radius and potential conflicts of interest and determines if candidates meet the qualifications desired by the committee of candidates for election as director. To the extent feasible, candidates are interviewed by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, other members of the Board, and members of our executive management. Owen Hughes and Elizabeth Stoner, M.D., Class I director nominees elected to the Board in 2013, were both recommended by non-management directors.

Table of Contents


CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

In considering whether to recommend any particular candidate for inclusion in the Board's slate of recommended Director nominees, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will apply the criteria set forth in our Corporate Governance Guidelines. These criteria include the candidate's integrity, ethics and values; practical business judgement; experience in corporate management and finance; relevant social policy concerns; professional and academic experience relevant to our industry and operations; and experience as a board member or executive officer of another publicly held company. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee also considers the candidate's diversity of expertise and experience in substantive matters pertaining to our business relative to other Board members, as well as diversity of background and perspective, including, but not limited to, with respect to age, gender, race, place of residence and specialized experience. The Board evaluates each individual in the context of the Board as a whole, with the objective of assembling a group that can best perpetuate our success and represent stockholder interests through the exercise of sound judgment using its diversity of experience in these various areas. In determining whether to recommend a director for re-election, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may also consider the director's past attendance at meetings and participation in and contributions to the activities of the Board.

Stockholders may recommend individuals to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee for consideration as potential Director candidates by submitting the names of the recommended individuals, together with appropriate biographical information and background materials, to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, c/o Secretary, Radius Health, Inc., 950 Winter Street, Waltham, Massachusetts, 02451. In the event there is a vacancy, and assuming that appropriate biographical and background material has been provided on a timely basis, the Committee will evaluate stockholder-recommended candidates by following substantially the same process, and applying substantially the same criteria, as it follows for candidates submitted by others.

COMMUNICATIONS FROM STOCKHOLDERS

The Board will give appropriate attention to written communications that are submitted by stockholders, and will respond if and as appropriate. Our Secretary is primarily responsible for monitoring communications from stockholders and for providing copies or summaries to the Directors as he considers appropriate.

Communications are forwarded to all Directors if they relate to important substantive matters and include suggestions or comments that our Secretary and Chairman of the Board consider to be important for the Directors to know. In general, communications relating to corporate governance and long-term corporate strategy are more likely to be forwarded than communications relating to ordinary business affairs, personal grievances and matters as to which we tend to receive repetitive or duplicative communications. Stockholders who wish to send communications on any topic to the Board should address such communications to the Board of Directors by writing: c/o Secretary, Radius Health, Inc., 950 Winter Street, Waltham, Massachusetts, 02451.

BOARD LEADERSHIP STRUCTURE AND ROLE IN RISK OVERSIGHT

Our Board of Directors is currently chaired by Mr. Graves. As a general policy, our Board believes that separation of the positions of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer reinforces the independence of the Board from management, creates an environment that encourages objective oversight of management's performance and enhances the effectiveness of the Board of Directors as a whole. As such, Mr. Ward serves as our President and Chief Executive Officer while Mr. Graves serves as the Chairman of the Board but is not an officer of the company. We expect and intend the positions of Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer to continue to be held by two individuals in the future.

Our Board and Board committees have an active role in overseeing management of our risks. The Board regularly reviews information regarding our credit, liquidity and operations, as well as the risks associated with each. Our Compensation Committee is responsible for overseeing the management of risks relating to our executive compensation plans and arrangements. Our Audit Committee oversees management of financial risks. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee manages risks associated with the independence of the Board and potential conflicts of interest. While each committee is responsible for evaluating certain risks and overseeing the

2015 Proxy Statement Radius Health, Inc. 31

Table of Contents


CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

management of such risks, the entire Board stays regularly informed through committee reports about such risks. The Board does not believe that its role in the oversight of our risks affects the Board's leadership structure.

CODE OF ETHICS

We have adopted a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics that applies to all of our directors, officers and employees. A copy of the code is available on our website at www.radiuspharm.com in the "Corporate Governance" section of the "Investors" page. In addition, we intend to post on our website all disclosures that are required by SEC rules or NASDAQ rules concerning any amendments to, or waivers from, any provision of the code.

ATTENDANCE BY MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AT MEETINGS

There were seven (7) meetings of the Board of Directors during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014. During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014, each Director attended at least 75% of the aggregate of (i) all meetings of the Board of Directors and (ii) all meetings of the committees on which the Director served during the period in which he or she served as a Director, except for Alan Auerbach.

Currently, we do not maintain a formal policy regarding director attendance at the Annual Meeting; however, it is expected that absent compelling circumstances directors will attend.

EXECUTIVE SESSIONS

As provided in our Corporate Governance Guidelines, the non-management directors meet in executive session without management directors or management present on a regularly scheduled basis, but no less than twice per year. In addition, our Corporate Governance Guidelines provide that the independent directors must also meet separately at least once per year in an executive session.

Executive Compensation

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

This Compensation Discussion and Analysis provides an overview and analysis of the compensation awarded to or earned by our named executive officers identified in the Summary Compensation Table below during 2014, including the elements of our compensation program for named executive officers, material compensation decisions made under that program during 2014 and the material factors considered in making those decisions.

Our named executive officers for the year ended December 31, 2014 are:

Compensation Philosophy and Objectives

We intend that total compensation for our named executive officers reflect a "pay for performance" compensation philosophy. Total compensation is allocated between compensation elements, taking into consideration the balance between providing short-term incentives and long-term investment in our financial performance, in a manner intended to align the interests of our named executive officers with the interests of our stockholders, reward value creation and provide competitive pay and benefits to our named executive officers. Variable incentive compensation is a key component of our compensation strategy and helps to ensure that total compensation reflects the overall success or failure of our company.

To achieve our compensation objectives, the Company provides executives with a total compensation package consisting primarily of the following fixed and variable compensation elements:

Compensation Element

Purpose
Base Salary   Recognize performance of job responsibilities and attract and retain individuals with superior talent
Annual Cash Incentive Plan   Provide short-term incentives to attain financial measures
Equity Incentive Awards   Promote the maximization of stockholder value by aligning the interests of employees and stockholders

Determination of Compensation Awards

Historically, we have not had any formal policy for determining the compensation of named executive officers. Our Compensation Committee has principal authority for determining and approving, or recommending to our Board for approval, the compensation awards available to our named executive officers and is charged with reviewing our executive compensation policies and practices to ensure adherence to our compensation philosophies and objectives. In determining 2014 executive compensation, the Compensation Committee consulted with our President and Chief Executive Officer and utilized the services of a third-party compensation consultant. Refer to "Role of Compensation Consultant in Determining Executive Compensation" and "Role of Chief Executive Officer in Determining Executive Compensation" below for additional information.

We believe that direct ownership in our company provides our named executive officers with a strong incentive to increase the value of our company. We do not currently have any formal stock ownership guidelines but we have historically encouraged equity ownership by named executive officers through awards of stock options. We believe these awards align our named executive officers' interests with our stockholders' interests.

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

Role of Compensation Consultant in Determining Executive Compensation

When making compensation decisions in 2014, our Compensation Committee considered advice and data provided by Radford, an Aon company. Radford did not report directly to the Compensation Committee and was retained by the Company at the recommendation of management to provide the Compensation Committee with peer group and market information that the Compensation Committee used when determining whether our executive compensation is competitive, commensurate with the executive officers' responsibilities and consistent with market trends in executive compensation practices for companies. Radford also provides services to us that are unrelated to executive compensation. The Compensation Committee does not believe Radford's work in 2014 raised a conflict of interest.

In connection with the Compensation Committee's review of our executive compensation programs in December 2014, Radford conducted and presented to the Compensation Committee a competitive assessment of our compensation program for executive officers with respect to pay philosophies, pay mix, cash and equity-linked compensation. In performing this competitive assessment, Radford used a peer group selected by the Compensation Committee in consultation with Radford based on revenue, industry and executive role considerations. The peer group was comprised of the following twenty publicly traded companies in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and life sciences industries that represent competitors for executive talent and capital:

Acceleron Pharma

 

New Link Genetics

Aerie Pharmaceuticals

 

OncoMed Pharmaceuticals

Ambit Biosciences

 

Ophthotech

Auspex Pharmaceuticals

 

Portola Pharmaceuticals

Bluebird Bio

 

Sage Therapeuticals

Celldex Therapeutics

 

Synta Pharmaceuticals

Chimerix

 

Tesaro

Enanta Pharmaceuticals

 

Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals

Flexion Therapeutics

 

Xencor

Infinity Pharmaceuticals

 

Ziopharm Oncology

Radford observed that the companies in the peer group generally target the market 50th percentile for cash compensation and at or above the market 50th percentile for equity compensation.

Based upon Radford's and management's recommendations and the exercise by the Compensation Committee's members of their industry knowledge and business judgment, the Compensation Committee determined it was appropriate to adopt a policy of targeting base salary and total cash compensation at the 50th percentile of the peer group and targeting long-term equity incentives at the 50th to 75th percentile of the peer group.

Role of Executive Officers in Determining Executive Compensation

Our President and Chief Executive Officer made recommendations to the Compensation Committee to assist it in determining 2014 compensation levels. In addition, our President and Chief Executive Officer provided the Compensation Committee with a review of the performance of the other executive officers. While the Compensation Committee utilized this information and valued management's observations with regard to compensation, the ultimate decisions regarding 2014 executive compensation were made by the Compensation Committee or the Board upon the recommendation of the Compensation Committee.

Components of Compensation

Our executive compensation program utilizes three primary pay components: base salary, annual performance-based cash incentive awards and periodic equity-based incentives, typically in the form of stock options.

2015 Proxy Statement Radius Health, Inc. 37

Table of Contents


EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

Base Salary

Base salaries for our named executive officers were initially established through arm's length negotiation at the time an executive was hired. In connection with the hiring of Drs. Harris and Williams in 2014, the Compensation Committee assessed market survey data based on the experience of the Compensation Committee members in order to develop a compensation package, including their annual base salaries, that the Compensation Committee believed necessary to attract and retain the employment of Drs. Harris and Williams.

The Compensation Committee periodically reviews and evaluates, with input from our President and Chief Executive Officer other than with respect to his own salary, the need for adjustment of the base salaries of named executive officers based on changes and expected changes in the scope of an executive's responsibilities, including promotions, the individual contributions made by and performance of the executive during the prior fiscal year, the executive's performance over a period of years, overall labor market conditions, the relative ease or difficulty of replacing the executive with a well-qualified person, our overall growth and development as a company and general salary trends in our industry. No specific weight is assigned to any of these criteria.

In connection with his promotion to Senior Vice President, Chief Scientific Officer in December 2013, Dr. Hattersley received an increase in his base salary of approximately 13%, effective December 20, 2013. In addition, Dr. Harris received a 5% increase in his base salary, effective June 15, 2014, in connection with his promotion to Chief Medical Officer. These increases were intended to reflect the increased scope and complexity of each named executive officer's responsibilities and to maintain market-competitive salaries.

In connection with the December 2014 executive compensation review, the Compensation Committee prospectively increased each named executive officer's base salary in order to maintain a competitive executive compensation package, recognize increased responsibilities associated with our growth as a public company and implement the pay philosophy of targeting executive officer base salaries at a level approximating the 50th percentile of the peer group described above. These base salary increases became effective January 1, 2015.

The following table sets forth the base salaries of our named executive officers for 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Annual Performance-Based Cash Incentives

We believe that the payment of annual, performance-based cash compensation provides incentives necessary to retain executive officers and reward them for short-term company performance. Each named executive officer is eligible to receive an annual performance-based cash bonus based on achievement of performance goals developed by our Compensation Committee or Board with input from our President and Chief Executive Officer. Each named executive officer has a target annual bonus award amount, expressed as a percentage of the named executive officer's base salary. After the year is completed, the Compensation Committee reviews actual performance against the stated goals and determines subjectively what it believes to be the appropriate level of cash bonus, if any, for the named executive officers. For 2014, the actual bonus amounts for our named executive officers were approved by our Board based on Compensation Committee recommendations.

The 2014 target bonus percentages for the named executive officers other than Dr. Hattersley and Mr. Harvey were established through arm's length negotiation at the time the given executive was hired. Dr. Hattersley's and Mr. Harvey's 2014 target bonus percentages were maintained at their 2013 levels. Mr. Harvey was also eligible to receive a one-time bonus in an amount of up to $50,000 upon the closing of our initial public offering, with the

2015 Proxy Statement Radius Health, Inc. 38

EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

actual amount of the bonus determined by our Chief Executive Officer in his discretion. This bonus was intended to reward Mr. Harvey's contributions to our successful offering.

Our corporate, financial and operational goals for our 2014 fiscal year were:

In December 2014, the Compensation Committee determined all of the foregoing goals were met and, with respect to the closing of an initial public offering, financial health, and RAD1901 and abaloparatide clinical trials, were substantially exceeded. The Compensation Committee then reviewed each individual named executive officer's performance within his area of responsibility and, based on the performance against our corporate goals and the collective business judgment and industry experience of the individual Compensation Committee members, recommended to our Board, and our Board approved, the bonuses for our named executive officers set forth in the table below. Mr. Ward's annual bonus reflects that he was eligible to have a one-time discretionary multiplier of up to 200% applied to his annual bonus as a result of our initial public offering. Based on the foregoing considerations, the Board determined to apply a discretionary multiplier of 180% to what would otherwise have been Mr. Ward's 2014 bonus.

In connection with the December 2014 executive compensation review, the Compensation Committee approved a 5% increase in each named executive officer's annual bonus target for 2015. These increases were based upon recommendations by Radford and management and were intended to help the Company maintain a competitive executive compensation package and implement the pay philosophy of targeting total cash compensation for executive officers at a level approximating the 50th percentile of the peer group described above.

Equity-Based Awards

Our Compensation Committee believes that employees in a position to make a substantial contribution to the long-term success of our company should have a significant and ongoing stake in our success. Equity awards not only compensate but also motivate and encourage retention of key employees by providing an opportunity for the recipients to participate in the ownership of the company. In addition, we believe equity awards align the interests of key employees with the interests of our stockholders.

We have historically made initial awards of stock options to named executive officers upon their commencing employment with us and from time to time thereafter as the Board or Compensation Committee determined appropriate to motivate, retain and reward the named executive officers for their performance and our success. Stock options have been tied to both time and performance based vesting conditions. Generally, our time-based stock options vest as to 25% of the underlying shares on the first anniversary of the date of grant (or employment commencement for initial awards) and in 36 monthly installments during the three years thereafter, subject to the

2015 Proxy Statement Radius Health, Inc. 39

Table of Contents


EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

holder's continued service through the vesting date. Our performance-based stock options are eligible to vest based on achievement key performance milestones selected by our Board or Compensation Committee with the intent of increasing stockholder value and encouraging long-term commitment to our success. Time-based awards may also be subject to accelerated vesting upon achievement of performance conditions.

We have not historically had any formal policy for determining the number of equity-based awards to grant to named executive officers. Rather, the Compensation Committee has evaluated various factors when making its determination, including the base salary and target annual cash incentive opportunity of the named executive officer, the value of total compensation package the committee deems appropriate to attract and retain highly qualified named executive officers in light of the competitive environment, a named executive officer's ability to influence and create long-term stockholder value and, with respect to awards granted to named executive officers from time to time after they have commenced employment, the equity-based holdings of the named executive officer and the individual's personal experience and performance in recent periods.

In connection with the December 2014 executive compensation review, the Compensation Committee implemented a policy of targeting equity compensation for executive officers at the 50th to 75th percentile of the peer group described above. This policy was developed based on recommendations by Radford and management and was intended to help the Company maintain a competitive executive compensation package and more closely align the interests of named executive officers with the interests of stockholders by encouraging increased named executive officer equity holdings.

We granted stock options to all of our named executive officers during 2014. Mr. Ward, Dr. Harris and Dr. Williams each received stock option awards in 2014 in recognition of their commencing employment with us. The terms of these awards were negotiated at arm's length with the named executive officers at the time they were hired. Dr. Hattersley received a stock option award in connection with his promotion to Senior Vice President, Chief Scientific Officer and in recognition of the increased scope and complexity of his responsibilities. In addition, all of the named executive officers received stock option awards following the December 2014 executive compensation review in recognition of the Company's strong 2014 performance and to implement the policy of targeting equity compensation for executive officers at the 50th to 75th percentile of the peer group described above.

All of the awards detailed above were granted with an exercise price equal to fair market value, which before our initial public offering was determined by our board of directors, and subsequent to our initial public offering was based upon the closing price of our common stock on the option grant date. For a discussion of the impact that certain terminations of employment or a change in control of our Company would have on the vesting of these awards, please see "—Potential Payments upon Termination or Change in Control."

Retirement Programs

We maintain a tax-qualified 401(k) defined contribution plan in which substantially all of our full-time employees, including our named executive officers, are eligible to participate. We currently provide an employer matching contribution equal to 100% of a participant's eligible contributions of up to 3% of eligible compensation, subject to limits established by the Internal Revenue Code. All matching contributions are fully vested when made. Our 401(k) plan is intended to provide our employees, including our named executive officers, with an opportunity for tax-efficient savings and long-term financial security. We do not maintain any defined benefit pension plans, non-qualified deferred compensation plans or other special or supplemental executive retirement programs.

Employee Benefits and Perquisites

Our named executive officers are eligible to participate in our employee benefit plans and programs, including medical and dental benefits, flexible spending accounts and short- and long-term disability and life insurance, to the same extent as our other full-time employees, with the exception of maximum coverage limits under our life insurance plan, subject to the terms and eligibility requirements of those plans. We believe that the availability of our broad-based employee benefit programs enhances employee morale and loyalty. We do not generally provide perquisites or other personal benefits or tax "gross-ups" or reimbursements to named executive officers, although we have from time to time reimbursed relocation expenses for executive officers who we require to relocate when performing their duties for us.

Employment and Severance Arrangements

We consider maintenance of a strong management team essential to our success. To that end, the Company recognizes that the uncertainty which may exist among management with respect to their "at-will" employment with us could result in the departure or distraction of management personnel to our detriment. Accordingly, our Board and Compensation Committee have determined that severance arrangements are appropriate to encourage the continued attention and dedication of certain members of our management team and to allow them to focus on the value to stockholders of strategic alternatives without concern for the impact on their continued employment. Each of our named executive officers has entered into an employment agreement or offer letter that entitles the named executive officer to severance payments and benefits in the event of certain terminations of employment or upon a change in control of our Company, as described below under "—Potential Payments upon Termination or Change in Control." In addition, all of our named executive officers have executed confidentiality and non-competition agreements pursuant to which the named executive officers have agreed not to disclose our confidential information during or after their employment with us or compete with us or solicit our customers or employees for a period of one year following termination.
