2006 Annual Bonus Payments
2006 was a successful year. As summarized in the above bonus metrics tables, our performance exceeded target for most of the approved metrics. Most notably, we were the top performer for stock price growth among the companies in the XOI for 2006, with stock price growth of 52 percent.
Within the parameters of the bonus program, the Committee exercised its discretion to set individual bonus amounts based on bonus targets, Company performance achieved and assessment of individual performance. Consistent with our pay-for-performance philosophy, Officers were rewarded for their contributions to our outstanding performance with bonus payments at higher levels as compared to the bonus target opportunities established at the beginning of the year.
