Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On February 15, 2012, the compensation committee of the board of directors of FairPoint Communications, Inc. (the “Company”) established the 2012 target bonus performance goals for certain of the Company’s executive officers, including its principal executive officer, principal financial officer and certain other executive officers (collectively, the “Officers”), under the FairPoint Communications, Inc. 2012 Annual Incentive Plan (the “2012 AIP”).

The 2012 performance goals for bonus awards include the following for each Officer (weighted as indicated): (i) 65% – a Consolidated EBITDAR (as defined in the Company’s Credit Agreement, dated as of January 24, 2011) target and a Free Cash Flow (defined as Consolidated EBITDAR less capital expenditures, interest expense, mandatory amortization, cash taxes, severance and debt restructuring) target; (ii) 25% to 30% (depending on the applicable Officer) – achieving individual or departmental performance goals or milestones related to such Officer’s areas of responsibility; and (iii) 5% to 10% (depending on the applicable Officer) – the Company achieving specified service quality measures. In addition, the Company must achieve a minimum EBITDAR or Free Cash Flow objective for the payment of any bonuses to the Officers. Each Officer’s bonus amount is based on a percentage of such Officer’s base salary (such amount being 100% for the Company’s chief executive officer and between 40% and 50% for each of the other Officers). Any bonus awards are subject to the terms of the 2012 AIP.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
