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

  

The employment agreements for Stephen Berman, our President and Chief Executive Officer and John (Jack) McGrath, our Chief Operating Officer, provide, inter alia, that for fiscal year 2014, their respective bonuses will depend on our achieving certain performance targets to be determined by the Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors (the “Board”) before the end of the Company’s first fiscal quarter. These bonuses are awarded and paid in accordance with the terms and conditions of our 2002 Stock Award and Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). In addition, Mr. Berman’s employment agreement provides for the annual grant of $3.5 million of restricted stock subject to vesting conditions to be determined by the Compensation Committee of our Board of Directors before the end of the Company’s first fiscal quarter. Certain capitalized terms such as “EPS,” “Net Sales,” and “Operating Margin” are defined below.

 

The criteria for Messrs. Berman and McGrath’s respective 2014 bonuses, as well as the vesting criteria for Mr. Berman’s annual grant of restricted stock, have been established by the Compensation Committee, after discussion with its consultant, F.W. Cook & Company, as follows:

 

2014 Performance Bonus – Stephen Berman

 

Award of Mr. Berman’s Annual Performance Bonus for 2014 will be subject to achievement of performance standards in a total of four metrics: EPS growth, Net Sales growth, Growth in Net Sales of DreamPlay Products and Operating Margin improvement. A Base Performance Bonus equal to up to 200% of Mr. Berman’s Base Salary (the “Base Performance Bonus”) will be subject to achievement of performance standards in two metrics: EPS growth standards, measured in tranches with target performance levels equaling 0%-134% of Base Salary, and Net Sales Growth, measured in tranches with target performance levels equaling 0%-66% of Base Salary, provided a minimum Operating Margin standard is achieved. An additional Performance Bonus equal to up to 100% of Base Salary (the “Additional Performance Bonus”) may also be earned by Mr. Berman, subject to achievement of performance standards in two metrics: growth in Net Sales of DreamPlay products and Operating Margin improvement.

An Additional Performance Bonus equal to up to 100% of Base Salary may be earned by Mr. Berman, subject to achievement of performance standards in two metrics: growth in Net Sales of DreamPlay Products and improvement in the Company’s Operating Margin.

Vesting of 2014 Annual Performance Restricted Stock Award to Stephen Berman

 

Vesting of the 2014 Annual Performance Restricted Stock Award issued to Stephen Berman on January 1, 2014 (520,833 shares @$6.72 per share, the closing price on Dec. 31, 2013, with a total value of $3.5 million) will be subject to achievement of performance standards in two metrics: growth in our Common Stock Price and Operating Margin improvement. Each metric is measured independently in tranches with different target performance levels equaling 0%-50% of the Restricted Stock Award issued on January 1, 2014. The two metrics aggregate 100% of the Restricted Stock Award issued on January 1, 2014 if the highest tranche in each metric is achieved; provided, however, that in order for any Shares to vest: (i) at least the lowest tranche in each of two metrics must be met for 2014, and (ii) in order for a metric to be used in calculating the vesting percentage, the metric for the second year must be greater than such metric in the first year. In order for a Common Stock Price metric to apply, the Common Stock Price must have been achieved for at least twenty (20) consecutive trading days. If the foregoing performance conditions are satisfied, then 25% of the Restricted Stock Award will fully vest and in order for the balance of 75% of the Restricted Stock award to vest, the Executive’s service as an employee must continue for at least one additional year after the performance conditions have been satisfied.
