On February 29, 2012, the Compensation Committee of the
Board of Directors of Lumos Networks Corp. (the Company) took the following actions:
2011 Bonus Payments
After review of the Companys consolidated financial results for 2011 and taking into consideration the
Companys targets for 2011 with respect to revenues and Adjusted EBITDA (defined as net income attributable to the Company before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, accretion of asset retirement obligations, net
income attributable to noncontrolling interests, other expenses/income, equity based compensation charges, acquisition related charges, and costs related to the separation of the company from NTELOS Holdings Corp.), each individuals
performance and other considerations, approved incentive payments for the following named executive officers: Michael B. Moneymaker, President, $188,502; Harold L. Covert, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, $49,217; Mary McDermott, Senior Vice
President, Legal and Regulatory Affairs and Secretary $84,535; and David J. Keller, Senior Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Customer Care, $43,812. (The Companys Chief Executive Officer, James A. Hyde, does not receive compensation from
the Company other than salary. Mr. Covert joined the Compay in September 2011. Mr. Keller also received quarterly sales incentives in 2011 in his capacity as leader of the Companys sales organization.)
2012 Equity Award Grants
After considering a competitive market review of long-term incentives for its executive officers, approved stock option grants under the Companys 2011 Equity and Cash Incentive Plan for the
following named executive officers: Mr. Moneymaker, 79,618; Mr. Covert, 34,380; Ms. McDermott, 21,206; and Mr. Keller, 16,975. These stock options were issued with an exercise price of $12.80 per share, which represents the
closing price of the Companys stock on February 29, 2011, with 25% of each of the grants vesting on March 1, 2013, March 1, 2014, March 1, 2014, and March 1, 2015, respectively. The Compensation Committee also approved
restricted stock award grants for the following named executive officers: Mr. Moneymaker, 25,701 shares; Mr. Covert, 11,098 shares; Ms. McDermott, 6,845 shares; and Mr. Keller, 5,480 shares. These restricted stock awards cliff
vest on March 10, 2015.
2012 Team Incentive Plan
After considering a competitive market review of cash incentive payments as a percentage of base salary, approved the 2012 Team Incentive
Plan for our named executive officers (the 2012 Plan). The 2012 Plan establishes the performance measures for fiscal 2012 incentive payouts for the Companys executive officers, including its President and its other named executive
officers. For the named executive officers other than the President, the 2012 Plan establishes a target individual payout percentage ranging from 50% to 60% of eligible base salary. The Presidents target individual payout percentage under the
2012 Plan is 100% of his eligible base salary.
The 2012 Plan incentive payouts are tied to the Companys performance in
2012 in the areas of Revenues (60% weighting) and Adjusted EBITDA (as defined in the 2012 Plan) (40% weighting). The Revenue floor is
approximately 90% attainment of goal with achievement below that level resulting in no payout for the component and the Revenue ceiling is approximately 110% attainment of goal resulting in 200%
payout of the component. The Adjusted EBITDA floor is approximately 89% attainment of goal with achievement below that level resulting in no payout for the component and the Adjusted EBITDA ceiling is approximately 111% attainment of goal resulting
in 200% payout of the component.
The 2012 Plan provides for an individual incentive award that is equal to the product of
(i) the target percentage of the individuals eligible base salary, (ii) an individual payout percentage up to a maximum percentage provided for in the 2012 Plan (as finally determined based on achievement of individual performance
objectives) and (iii) the weighted company performance percentage, subject to a maximum incentive payout tied to the Companys performance in 2012 in the areas of revenues and Adjusted EBITDA. The final incentive amounts paid, if any,
shall be determined by the Compensation Committee based on the achievements of the Company performance measures and the individual performance factors.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
