Item 5.02(e) Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
On February 22, 2011 Registrants Compensation Committee updated a one year bonus plan for fiscal year 2011 for certain senior executives of Registrant. The principal executive officer, principal financial officer and other named executive officers of Registrant will be entitled to a fiscal year 2011 bonus if the financial performance of Registrant meets selected goals with relationship to sales, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), return on net assets and earnings per share. Each of the goals (except for return on net assets which does not change) is in excess of Registrants goals in those categories for fiscal year 2010. If each goal is exactly reached, such participants bonus would be 50% of base salary for fiscal year 2011. The bonus would be increased by 2.5% for each 1% achievement above goal, with a maximum of an additional bonus of 25% of base salary. The bonus would be decreased by 3% up to 5% for each 1% shortfall in goals, so that attaining only 75% of any goal would result in no bonus allocation from that category. For 2011 there will be a floor of 10% of salary and a ceiling of 75% of salary. The amounts paid in fiscal year 2010 are shown in the 2010 Proxy Statement compensation analysis, but an exact amount for fiscal year 2011 cannot be determined at this time.
