Item 1.01 Entry Into A Material Definitive Agreement.
On May 4, 2006, the Compensation Committee (the Committee) of the Board of Directors of Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the Company) adopted the 2006 Senior Executive Compensation Program (the Program). The terms of the Program are not contained in a formal written plan.
Pursuant to the Program and their current employment agreements, each senior executive (other than the Chief Executive Officer) of the Company (each, an Executive Officer) is eligible to receive an annual cash bonus targeted at, depending on his or her position with the Company, 35% to 45% of his or her base salary (the Target Bonus). Each Executive Officers annual cash bonus award may range from 0% to 150% of his or her Target Bonus, based upon (i) the Company achieving certain gross profit and/or operating cash flow targets (the Financial Targets), (ii) divisional contribution and divisional gross profit (where applicable) and (iii) the departmental and individual performance of such Executive Officer during 2006.
The application of the above factors in determining annual cash bonus awards varies by the position and division of the Executive Officer with the following ranges:
(i) As applicable, from forty percent (40%) to sixty percent (60%) of the cash bonus award is based upon the Companys actual performance against the Financial Targets,
(ii) As applicable, from thirty percent (30%) to fifty percent (50%) of the cash bonus award is based on divisional contribution and divisional gross profit, and
(iii) As applicable, from thirty percent (30%) to forty percent (40%) of the cash bonus award is based on departmental and individual performance.
The Committee will determine whether and to what extent cash bonuses will be paid for fiscal year 2006 after the end of 2006.
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.
