On March 31, 2006, First Advantage Corporations, (the Company) Compensation Committee decided to recommend for adoption a senior executive annual incentive program for fiscal year 2006 (2006 Incentive Program), which memorializes the performance measurement to be used to determine whether certain senior executive of the Company are eligible to receive a bonus for 2006. Eligible participants include the Companys named executive officers, which include the Chief Executive Officer, President, Chief Financial Officer, and Chief Operating Officer, and certain senior executives comprised of the Chief Information Officer, General Counsel and Division Presidents.
Bonuses granted under the 2006 Incentive Plan are expressed as a percentage of base salary and are awarded based on the achievement of certain quantitative and qualitative performance measurements with respect to the Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, General Counsel, Chief Information Officer and Division Presidents. However, no bonuses will be awarded under the 2006 Incentive Plan if threshold quantitative measurements related to corporate financial goals are not met. The Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, and Division Presidents have an opportunity to earn a bonus up to a maximum of 125 percent of their base salary, while the General Counsel and Chief Information Officer have an opportunity to earn a bonus up to 100 percent of their base salary. The weight of each of the performance measurements for each of the participants listed below is as follows:
The Chief Executive Officer and President, Messrs. Long and Nallathambi, shall be entitled to a cash bonus based upon a percentage of their respective base salaries upon the achievement of certain quantitative performance measurements related to corporate financial goals. For both, the maximum percentage of their base salary available for a cash bonus award is 125 percent. In addition to the cash bonus, both the Chief Executive Officer and President shall be eligible for an equity bonus, which will also awarded if threshold quantitative measurements related to corporate financial goals are met. The equity grant will be subject to vesting requirements over a measurable period of time. However, no cash bonus or equity bonus will be awarded to either if threshold quantitative measurements related to corporate financial goals are not met.
The cash bonus distributions under the 2006 Incentive Plan will be calculated at the end of the fiscal year, will be based upon the audited financial results of the Company and will be paid during the first quarter of 2007. Targets shall be prorated should an individual join the 2006 Incentive Plan part way through the year. The 2006 Incentive Plan is effective for fiscal 2006 and may be changed or modified at the discretion of the Committee and Board.
Upon adoption of the 2006 Incentive Plan by the Board, a summary shall be filed as an amendment to this filing, or in a new filing.
