Item 5.02 - Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
At the Company's 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders on May 24, 2012, the Company's stockholders approved the Company's Executive Performance Bonus Plan (the "Plan"), which was established by the Compensation Committee of the Company's Board of Directors to increase stockholder value by motivating the Company's executive officers to achieve corporate objectives by providing a competitive bonus for achieving performance goals established by the Compensation Committee. The Plan will apply to incentives awarded to covered executives for fiscal 2013 and future years.
The Plan administrator will be the Compensation Committee or the outside directors of our Board of Directors (as defined in section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code). Among other things, the Plan administrator will have the authority to select participants under the Plan, to determine the performance goals, award amounts and other terms and conditions of awards under the Plan. The Plan administrator also will have the authority to establish and amend rules and regulations relating to the administration of the Plan. All decisions made by the Plan administrator in connection with the Plan will be made in the Plan administrator's sole discretion and will be final and conclusive.
Awards under the Plan will be payable upon the achievement during each performance period designated by the Plan administrator of objective performance goals established by the Plan administrator based on the attainment of specified levels of one of, or any combination of, the “performance criteria” set forth in the Plan for the Company as a whole or for any business unit of the Company, as reported or calculated by the Company. Such performance goals also may be based on the achievement of specified levels of Company performance (or performance of an applicable affiliate or business unit of the Company) under one or more of the performance criteria described above or relative to the performance of other companies, the industry or a sector of the industry.
The Plan administrator may provide in any award that any evaluation of performance may be adjusted either in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") or on a non-GAAP basis as specified in the performance goal, and may also include or exclude certain events that occur during a performance period as specified in the Plan. Goals may differ for each participant. If the Plan administrator determines that the established performance goals have been met and awards are payable, such awards will qualify as deductible “performance-based compensation” within the meaning of Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The description of the Plan contained in this report is qualified in its entirety by reference to the summary of the material terms of the Plan, a copy of which is attached as Appendix A to the Company's definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A for the 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 17, 2012, and is incorporated herein by reference.
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.
