Adoption of Performance Goals for Fiscal 2005 Cash and Performance Unit Awards
On January 24 and 25, 2005, the Compensation Committee named those executive officers set forth below as participants eligible to earn cash and performance unit awards under the Executive MICAP based on performance during the 2005 fiscal year and established performance goals and target award percentages for each participant.
Cash Awards. The cash award payable under Executive MICAP to the named participants will be based on the financial performance of Gap Inc. and/or a division of the company. The weighting between the Gap Inc. and division financial performance goals as well as the base target award percentage (as a percentage of base salary) for cash awards for each named participant is as set forth below. The financial performance of a division or Gap Inc., as applicable, shall be based on the achievement of the following objective performance goals (each as defined in the Executive MICAP): 70% depends on the Earnings of the division or Gap Inc.; 20% depends on the Economic Profit of the division or Gap Inc.; and 10% depends on the Free Cash Flow of the division or Gap Inc. Actual cash awards payable under the Executive MICAP can range from 0 to 150% (0 to 100% for Donald G. Fisher) of a participants base salary depending upon the extent to which the financial performance of a division and/or Gap Inc. meets, exceeds or is below target.
Performance Unit Awards. Awards payable in performance units, issued pursuant to the Companys 1996 Stock Option and Award Plan, to the named participants under Executive MICAP will be based 100% on year-over-year growth in Earnings Per Share of Gap Inc. (as defined in the Executive MICAP). The base target award percentage (as a percentage of base salary) for performance unit awards for each named participant is as set forth below. Actual performance unit awards payable under the Executive MICAP can have a value that ranges from 0 to 60% of a participants base salary depending upon the extent to which the growth in Earnings Per Share for Gap Inc. meets, exceeds or is below target. In determining the number of performance units awarded to each participant, the value of each performance unit shall equal the
average of the high and low prices at which a share of the Companys common stock traded on the date of award, rounded down to the nearest whole unit. Each performance unit award will be granted pursuant to the Gap Inc. Stock Award Agreement (as described below) and will be subject to vesting as determined by the Compensation Committee on the date of award.
