EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
 
Our executives are eligible for awards of nonqualified stock options, restricted stock, and other stock-based awards under our applicable stock-based compensation plans. These stock-based compensation plans are administered by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors. Generally, the exercise price at which an executive may purchase Skyworks’ common stock pursuant to a stock option is the fair market value of Skyworks’ common stock on the date of grant. Stock options are granted subject to restrictions on vesting, with equal portions of the total grant typically vesting over a period of four years. Our stock options are subject to termination (after certain grace periods) upon termination of employment, disability or death. Restricted stock awards involve the issuance of shares of common stock that may not be transferred or otherwise encumbered, subject to certain exceptions, for varying amounts of time, and which will be forfeited, in whole or in part, if the executive terminates his or her employment with Skyworks prior to the restrictions lapsing.
 
The Named Executives were also eligible to receive short-term cash incentive compensation under which a percentage of each executive’s total cash compensation is tied to the Company’s accomplishment of specific financial objectives during fiscal year 2006. The Company did not achieve the financial objectives set by the Board of Directors, and therefore no short-term cash incentive payments were made to the Named Executives with respect to fiscal year 2006. Although in prior fiscal years, certain Named Executives were provided an opportunity to participate in the Company’s Executive Compensation Plan (the “Executive Compensation Plan”), an unfunded, non-qualified deferred compensation plan, under which participants were allowed to defer a portion of their compensation, as a result of deferred compensation legislation under Section 409A of the IRC, effective December 31, 2005, the Company no longer permits employees to make contributions to the plan. Although the Company had discretion to make additional contributions to the accounts of participants while it was active, it never did so.
