Base Salary
 
Base salary represents the annual salary paid to each executive. The objective of base salary is to provide a baseline compensation level that delivers current cash income to the NEOs and reflects his or her job responsibilities, experience and value to the Company. To aid in attracting and retaining high quality executives, salaries for our NEOs are generally targeted at the 75th percentile of our peer group to reflect the Company’s large size relative to the peer group as measured by revenue, the aggressive nature of our overall business plan, and the highly performance-based nature of the other elements of the direct compensation program. We review base salaries in the last quarter of the fiscal year and increases, where applicable, are typically effective for the beginning of the new fiscal year. Individual salaries range above or below the 75th percentile based on a variety of factors, including position level, executive experience relative to industry peers, individual performance, future potential, leadership qualities and unique skill sets.
