14. SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION
Prior to the Separation, our eligible employees participated in the Masco share-based compensation program and received RSAs and Options. Effective July 1, 2015, our eligible employees currently participate in the 2015 TopBuild Long-Term Incentive Plan, as amended from time to time (the “2015 Plan”). The 2015 Plan authorizes the Board of Directors to grant stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted shares, restricted share units, performance awards, and dividend equivalents. All grants are made by issuing new shares and no more than 4.0 million shares of common stock may be issued under the 2015 Plan. As of December 31, 2016, we had 3.0 million shares available under the 2015 plan.
Prior to the Separation, share-based compensation expense was allocated to TopBuild based on the awards and options previously granted by Masco to TopBuild employees. Outstanding, unvested Masco RSAs and Options held by employees of TopBuild as of June 30, 2015, were forfeited upon Separation and replaced with TopBuild long-term incentive awards immediately subsequent to the Separation. The replacement awards are subject to the same terms and conditions in effect prior to the Separation and are of generally equivalent value.

The fair value of our RSAs with a market-based condition granted under the 2015 Plan was determined using a Monte Carlo simulation. The following are key inputs in the Monte Carlo analysis for awards granted in 2016:
The fair value of Options granted under the 2015 Plan was calculated using the Black-Scholes Options Pricing Model. The following table presents the assumptions used to estimate the fair values of the options granted in 2016 and 2015:
