Performance Measures and Weighting


The performance measures and weighting are intended to balance the focus of each role across the most important Company objectives. For fiscal year 2008, these measures and weightings were as follows:



All of the Named Executive Officers had an EBIT measure. If achieved, this measure would not pay out unless a Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) threshold had also been met.


  For Blake, Pete and Erik Nordstrom, the EBIT measure and ROIC threshold made up 100% of their performance-based bonus criteria.


  For Mike Koppel and Dan Little, the EBIT measure and ROIC threshold made up 75% of their performance-based bonus criteria.



Mike Koppel and Dan Little also each had two qualitative performance measures as outlined below, which corresponded with their roles and responsibilities. The combination of these qualitative measures made up 25% of their performance-based bonus criteria. Based on the priorities for fiscal year 2008, the President and the Committee believed this combination of measures represented the intended focus for these executives.


The 2008 performance measures and weighting for the Named Executive Officers are shown below.
