(e) At our Annual Meeting on May 8, 2012, our stockholders approved the Executive Incentive Bonus Plan (the Bonus Plan) and the Amended and Restated 2007 Equity Incentive Plan (the Equity Plan).
Executive Incentive Bonus Plan
The purpose of the Bonus Plan is to increase stockholder value and the success of the Company by motivating key executives to perform to the best of their abilities and achieve the Companys objectives. The Bonus Plan will be administered by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the Compensation Committee). Under the Bonus Plan, participants will be eligible to receive awards based upon the attainment and certification of certain performance criteria established by the Compensation Committee. The amounts that will be paid pursuant to the Bonus Plan are not currently determinable as awards are determined based on actual future performance. The maximum bonus payment that any participant may receive under the Bonus Plan in any year with respect to an award that is intended to be exempt from the limitations of Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code is the lesser of $3,000,000 or 200% of the participants base salary.
The Bonus Plan is described in detail in our 2012 proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 5, 2012 in connection with the annual meeting of stockholders held on May 8, 2012. The descriptions of the Bonus Plan set forth herein and in the proxy statement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Bonus Plan, which was filed as an exhibit to our 2012 proxy statement on Schedule 14A.
Amended and Restated 2007 Equity Incentive Plan
The purpose of the Equity Plan is: (i) to attract and retain the best available personnel for positions of substantial responsibility, (ii) to provide incentives to individuals who perform services to the Company or its subsidiaries, and (iii) to promote the success of the Companys business. The Equity Plan provides for the grant of the following types of incentive awards: (i) stock options, (ii) restricted stock, (iii) restricted stock units, (iv) stock appreciation rights, (v) performance units and performance shares, and (vi) other stock or cash awards. Employees, directors and consultants who provide services to the Company or its subsidiaries will be eligible for awards under the Equity Plan. The Board has reserved 17,000,000 shares of our common stock for issuance under the Equity Plan. The shares may be authorized, but unissued, or reacquired common stock. The Board, or a committee appointed by the Board, will administer the Equity Plan.
The Equity Plan is described in detail in our 2012 proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 5, 2012 in connection with the annual meeting of stockholders held on May 8, 2012. The descriptions of the Equity Plan set forth herein and in the proxy statement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Equity Plan, which was filed as an exhibit to our 2012 proxy statement on Schedule 14A.
