(e) On December 13, 2012, the Board of Directors of IRIDEX Corporation (the
Company) adopted a 2013 executive management bonus plan (the 2013 Bonus Plan). The 2013 Bonus Plan was adopted to provide cash incentive payouts to all eligible senior staff-level employees based upon Company and individual
performance. All vice presidents, corporate officers and other specified senior employees, in good standing, are eligible to participate in the 2013 Bonus Plan.
Target payouts for each participant under the 2013 Bonus Plan will be based on a specified percentage of annual base salary and are triggered upon the achievement of both corporate performance objectives
determined by the Companys Board of Directors and individual performance objectives determined by the Compensation Committee.
for the 2013 Bonus Plan is triggered when the Company achieves a minimum threshold of annual Operating Income, as determined by the Companys Board of Directors and before accounting for the cost of the 2013 Bonus Plan (the Targeted
Operating Income). For purposes of the 2013 Bonus Plan, the Companys annual Operating Income is defined as gross profits less operating expenses and unusual items excluded by the Companys Board of Directors, and therefore does not
include other income or expenses or taxes.
If the 2013 Bonus Plan is funded, a portion of the Companys net Operating Income, before
accounting for the cost of the 2013 Bonus Plan, ranging from 1.0% of net Operating Income, in the event 100% of the Targeted Operating Income and 100% of all target individual performance objectives are achieved, to 14.0% of net Operating Income, in
the event 150% of the Targeted Operating Income and 100% of all target individual performance objectives are achieved, will be allocated to fund the 2013 Bonus Plan.
The Company intends to fully distribute the amount of Operating Income funded under the 2013 Bonus Plan. The Compensation Committee, taking into account the recommendations of management regarding
achievement of individual performance objectives, will approve all payouts under the 2013 Bonus Plan. Payouts under the 2013 Bonus Plan will be paid following the end of the fiscal year through profit sharing/bonus payouts by March 15 of the
