2. Adoption of the 2007 performance measures for the executive officers under the MPIP. In order for the executive officers to be deemed to have met their goals, the aggregate three-year performance measures require Brinks, Incorporated and Brinks Home Security to achieve specific thresholds for revenue, operating profit, and the addition of economic value, and for the Company to achieve an earnings per share target. The earnings per share target, the performance of Brinks, Incorporated and the performance of Brinks Home Security were each given equal weight. Performance award targets for the 2007-2009 measurement period were set as follows: Mr. Dan, $1,000,000; Mr. Ritter, $250,000; Mr. Lennon, $200,000; Mr. Reed, $200,000; and Mr. Hartough, $150,000. Actual awards can range from 0% to 200% of the target depending on performance against the pre-established measures.

Award of cash bonuses under the Companys Key Employees Incentive Program (the KEIP) to the executive officers for the year ended December 31, 2006 in the following amounts: Mr. Dan, $1,350,000; Mr. Ritter, $380,000; Mr. Lennon, $250,000; Mr. Reed, $250,000; and Mr. Hartough, $140,000. Awards under the KEIP to the executive officers for 2006 were based upon individual (50%), unit (25%) and Company (25%) performance during the year, except for Mr. Dan, whose award was based upon individual (50%) and Company (50%) performance during the year.
4. Approval of the KEIP goals of the Chief Executive Officer for 2007. Mr. Dans individual performance in 2007 will be measured against specific goals pertaining to financial plans, strategy, cost containment and productivity objectives, and corporate governance process and compliance results.
