2007 Senior Executive Equity Compensation Program.
On June 26, 2007, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc., (the Company) adopted the 2007 Senior Executive Equity Compensation Program (the Program). The terms of the Program are not contained in a formal written plan.
Pursuant to the Program, each senior executive (other than the Chief Executive Officer) of the Company (each, an Executive Officer) is eligible to receive a restricted stock award. Depending on the Executive Officers position with the Company, target awards range between 700 and 15,000 restricted shares of Company common stock (the Target Award). An individual who becomes an Executive Officer of the Company after the beginning of the fiscal year will be eligible for a prorated Target Award, based upon the portion of time in 2007 during which the individual serves as an Executive Officer of the Company.
The number of restricted shares granted to an Executive Officer will be based on the Company achieving certain earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization targets, adjusted for non-cash charges, share-based compensation, acquisition related charges, restructuring charges, litigation charges, gains or losses on debt repurchase, and gains or losses on sales of operating assets or securities (as adjusted, the Financial Targets) during 2007. The actual award of restricted stock to an Executive Officer can range from 0% to 150% of such Executive Officers Target Award, based upon the level of achievement of such Financial Targets.
Restricted stock awards awarded under the Program, if any, will be issued after the end of 2007, and will vest 50% on the second anniversary of such restricted stock award, and 50% on the fourth anniversary of such restricted stock award. The Compensation Committee will determine whether and to what extent restricted stock awards will be awarded for fiscal year 2007 after the end of 2007.
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.
