Share Retention Guidelines
Executive Officer Share Retention Guidelines
We believe that our executives should have a significant equity interest in Hanesbrands. In order to promote such equity ownership and further align the interests of our executives with our stockholders, we have adopted share retention and ownership guidelines for our key executives. The stock ownership requirements vary based upon the executives level and range from a minimum of one times the executives salary to a maximum of four times the executives salary, in the case of the Chief Executive Officer. Until the stock ownership guidelines are met, an executive is required to retain 50% of any shares received (on a net after tax basis) under our equity-based compensation plans. Our key executives will have a substantial portion of their incentive compensation paid in the form of our common stock. In addition to shares directly held by a key executive, shares held for such executive in the Hanesbrands Inc. Employee Stock Purchase Plan of 2006, the Hanesbrands Inc. Retirement Savings Plan and the Hanesbrands Inc. Executive Deferred Compensation Plan (including equivalent shares held in that plan) will be counted for purposes of determining whether the ownership requirements are met.
Director Share Retention Guidelines
We believe that our directors should have a significant equity interest in Hanesbrands. In order to promote such equity ownership and further align the interests of our directors with our stockholders, we plan to adopt share retention and ownership guidelines for directors.
