Executive and Management Incentive Compensation
In May 2002, the Board of Directors adopted an annual cash incentive plan, the Corporate Incentive Plan (CIP), which applies to the Chief Executive Officer, his direct reports and other senior managers and certain other managers and professionals located throughout the world. The CIPs objective is to provide a competitive financial opportunity that will motivate key contributors to achieve or exceed our companys business plan. The CIP is a goal-driven plan based on annual financial performance that includes EBITDA, improvements in working capital and strategic and personal goals. The incentive compensation of the Chief Executive Officer under the CIP is based on global improvements in EBITDA, working capital, strategic goals and personal goals. Target incentive levels are established based on market competitive data and the functional responsibilities for the other participants in the CIP. The Board of Directors may approve discretionary payments under the CIP. No payments were made to the Chief Executive Officer or his direct reports for fiscal year 2006.
On August 30, 2005, the shareholders approved the 2004 Plan to provide incentives and awards to employees and directors of our company, as well as certain of our companys consultants.
