Those annual committee cash retainers remain $10,000 for members of the Audit Committee, $7,500 for the members of the Compensation Committee, and $5,000 for members of the Nominating and Governance Committee and all other committees.
The Board also pays a separate annual cash retainer to the Board's non-employee Lead Independent Director that was increased from $50,000 to $60,000.
All annual cash retainer fees are paid to non-employee directors on a quarterly basis in arrears.
Board and Committee Meeting Attendance Fees: Non-employee directors do not receive any additional compensation for their attendance at Board meetings. Non-employee directors, however, will continue to receive an additional $2,000 for each committee meeting they attend during the year (paid quarterly) for which they are a member or for which they attend at the request of such committee.
Initial Equity Grants to New Board Members: Each new non-employee Board member who joins the Company's Board will receive an initial equity grant of restricted stock consisting of that number of shares of the Company's common stock calculated by dividing $160,000 (increased from the previous $100,000) by the closing trading price of a share of the Company's common stock on the date of grant, all of which shall vest 25% annually on the grant anniversary over four years subject to continued service to the Company. New non-employee Board members will no longer receive 25,000 stock options upon joining the Board.

The Board additionally approved an one-time grant of restricted stock worth $60,000 as of September 11, 2013 for each continuing non-employee director as part of the increase in annual equity grants approved by the Board to bring the total amount of annual equity granted to non-employee directors to $160,000 for the current year.

implementation was roughly equivalent to five times the annual cash retainer paid to a non-employee Board member).
