Item 5.02(e)

Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

On December 13, 2012, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) adopted the Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. Executive Long Term Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) for the "named executive officers" (as such term is used in Instruction 4 to Item 5.02 of Form 8-K) and other key executives of the Company. The Plan occurs over three-year periods with the first period commencing with the Company’s 2012 calendar year.

Under the Plan, the Company’s named executive officers and other key executives will be provided with specific three-year target incentives based upon their salary, which will be payable in cash if the Company achieves certain performance goals set by the Board for each rolling three-year cycle. Award s will be paid out following the end of the three-year period if the specified performance goals are met. For example, goals set in calendar year 2012 will pertain to calendar years 2012, 2013 and 2014, and be eligible for payment in early calendar year 2015, at the Board’s discretion. The Board has the discretion to establish new performance goals for subsequent three-year cyles on an annual basis. 

On December 13, 2012, upon recommendation by the Compensation and Nominating Committee, the Board set specific three-year performance goals pertaining to the Plan for calendar year 2012. Named executive officers and key executives’ bonus potential is based upon the Company’s financial performance, which includes earnings per share, revenue targets and the Company’s stock price performance relative to the Russell Microcap Index. The Board may adopt additional target criteria for future plan years.

 

For the three-year period beginning with 2012, the named executive officers are eligible to receive the following amounts in 2015:
