Item 1.01 Entry Into A Material Definitive Agreement.
On January 30, 2005, the Compensation Committee (the Committee) of the Board of Directors of Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the Company) reviewed factors it had previously established to measure and determine whether to award a cash bonus to Allen Chao, Ph.D., the Companys Chief Executive Officer, for performance during the 2004 fiscal year. After considering the previously established factors, the Committee determined that no cash bonus will be paid to Dr. Chao for the 2004 fiscal year.
On January 30, 2005, the Committee adopted a formula for determining Dr. Chaos cash bonus eligibility for performance during the 2005 fiscal year end. The terms are not contained in a formal written plan. A summary of the criteria on which Dr. Chaos bonus will be determined for fiscal year 2005 is as follows:
Dr. Chao will be eligible to receive a cash bonus of up to $1,200,000. Up to $800,000 will be based upon the Company achieving certain operating cash flow targets, and up to $400,000 will be at the discretion of the Committee, taking into account: (i) success in developing plans acceptable to the Committee for retaining key executives, recruiting key executives as necessary, and further developing a succession plan for key executives; (ii) success in continuing to implement the Companys quality improvement initiatives designed to enhance and improve the Companys quality systems; (iii) success in implementing the Companys strategic action plan; and (iv) such other relevant factors as the Committee, in its sole discretion, shall determine. The Committee will determine whether or not and to what extent a bonus will be paid for fiscal year 2005 after the end of 2005.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
