Dollar amounts shown assume achievement at 100% of established targets and will change if base salary changes during fiscal 2014. The fiscal 2014 target awards shown for Messrs. Nelson, Harding, and Mortensen reflect the changes in their respective base salaries effective as of October 1, 2013.
The Compensation Committee determined that for purposes of fiscal 2014 bonus determinations under the Incentive Plan, the Company’s financial performance will be gauged by the level of achievement of modified net income and modified operating cash flow, in each case as determined from the Company’s audited financial statements. “Modified net income” is defined as net income (GAAP) before taxes and excluding any gains or losses from sales of assets. “Modified operating cash flow” is defined as net income from operations (GAAP) after taking into account adjustments for the following items: (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) provision for doubtful accounts, (iii) changes in: (a) accounts and notes receivable, (b) inventories, (c) income tax receivables, (d) prepaid expenses, (e) other assets, (f) accounts payable, and (g) accrued payroll, expenses and other current liabilities. Subject to the Compensation Committee’s discretion under the Incentive Plan, threshold modified net income equal to no less than 90% of the modified net income target approved by the Compensation Committee must be achieved in fiscal 2014 to earn any bonus payout under the Incentive Plan. Assuming this threshold is reached, then a percentage of achievement ranging from 90% to 200% will be assigned for each of modified net income and modified operating cash flow, respectively, in proportion to the level of modified net income and modified operating cash flow, respectively, achieved. Following that calculation of achievement for each of modified net income and operating cash flow, an overall Company financial performance achievement percentage will be calculated by giving modified net income percentage achievement 80% weight and giving modified operating cash flow 20% weight. The Compensation Committee also assigned individual goals for fiscal 2014 to each of the executive officers shown in the table above.
At the end of the fiscal year, bonus awards will be determined primarily by measuring the Company’s financial performance and the executive officer’s achievement of individual goals. The method for calculating bonus awards is set forth in the form of target award notification letter under the Incentive Plan for fiscal 2014 filed herewith as Exhibit 10.2 and incorporated herein by reference.
