Compensation Actions

On February 11, 2014, the independent members of the Board, upon recommendation of its Compensation and Development Committee, approved time-based restricted stock and performance share awards for the performance period ending December 31, 2016 to all officers of Great Plains Energy and its wholly-owned subsidiary, KCP&L. The current named executive officers or “NEOs” receiving awards are Mr. Bassham, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, James C. Shay, Senior Vice President-Finance and Strategic Development and Chief Financial Officer, Scott H. Heidtbrink, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of KCP&L, Heather A. Humphrey, Senior Vice President-Human Resources and General Counsel, and Michael L. Deggendorf, Senior Vice President-Corporate Services. These awards will be made pursuant to Great Plains Energy's Long-Term Incentive Plan (“LTIP”) and will be granted on March 4, 2014. The LTIP awards are based upon the base salary of each NEO, and the percentage of base salary used to calculate the aggregate dollar amount of the LTIP awards, at target performance for each NEO, is as follows: Mr. Bassham, 270%, Mr. Shay, 120%, Mr. Heidtbrink, 175%, Ms. Humphrey, 120%, and Mr. Deggendorf, 100%.  The award distribution is 25% restricted stock and 75% performance share awards.

The performance objectives established for the 2014 performance share grants are substantially the same as the 2013 performance share grants and are two equally-weighted performance objectives: three-year (2014-2016) average funds from operations as a percentage of total adjusted debt (as calculated using Standard & Poor's methodology); and total shareholder return compared to the Edison Electric Institute index of electric companies for the 2014-2016 period.  

2014 Annual Incentive Plan Awards

Additionally, on February 11, 2014, the independent members of the Board, upon recommendation of its Compensation and Development Committee, approved its 2014 Annual Incentive Plan (“AIP”) that is applicable to all officers of Great Plains Energy and KCP&L, including NEOs Messrs. Bassham, Shay, Heidtbrink, Deggendorf and Ms. Humphrey.  The awards are based upon the base salary of the NEO, and the percentage of base salary used to calculate the aggregate dollar amount of the AIP awards, at target performance for each NEO is as follows: Mr. Bassham, 100%, Mr. Shay, 60%, Mr. Heidtbrink, 70%, Mr. Deggendorf, 50%, and Ms. Humphrey, 50%.

The Board also established different performance objectives, compared to the 2013 annual incentive performance objectives.   The 2014 annual incentive performance objectives and their respective weightings are: earnings per share (50%); Days Away, Restricted or Transferred (“DART”)(5%); Safety Audits (5%): System Average Interruption Duration Index (“SAIDI”) (5%); equivalent availability factor — summer and winter peak — coal (5%); equivalent availability factor — nuclear (5%); J.D. Power Customer Satisfaction Index‑residential (5%); and individual performance (20%).
