General Compensation Policy. The objective of the Companys executive compensation program is to align executive compensation with the Companys long-term and short-term business objectives and performance. We rely upon judgment and not upon rigid guidelines or formulas in determining the amount and mix of compensation elements for each executive officer. Factors affecting our judgments include the nature and scope of the executive officers responsibilities and his effectiveness in leading our initiatives to achieve corporate goals. We believe that the skill, talent, judgment and dedication of our executive officers are critical factors affecting the long-term value of our Company. Therefore, our goal is to maintain an executive compensation program that will attract and retain qualified executives who are able to contribute to the long-term success of the Company and motivate them to a high level of performance.
For the 2005 fiscal year, the Compensation Committee determined executive officer compensation levels taking into account a variety of factors. The performance metrics against which the executives are measured are clearly communicated, measurable and consistently applied, and include corporate, departmental and individual goals. The Compensation Committee measures the Companys performance against the Companys specific performance goals established at the beginning of the fiscal year in determining the cash bonus pool, which is then allocated among the Companys departments pro rata. The CEO, as the manager of the members of the executive team, assesses the executives contribution to their respective departmental goals as well as achievement of their individual goals, and makes a recommendation to the Compensation Committee with respect to any merit increase in salary, cash bonus and stock option replenishment grant for each member of the executive team, other than himself. The Compensation Committee meets to evaluate, discuss and modify or approve these recommendations, and to conduct a similar evaluation of the CEOs contributions to corporate goals and achievement of individual goals.
