Item 5.02    Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Fiscal 2021 Annual Executive Cash Bonus Program. On August 11, 2020, Graham Corporation’s (the “Company”) Compensation Committee renewed and amended the Company’s Annual Executive Cash Bonus Program (the “Cash Bonus Program”) for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021 (“Fiscal 2021”). The objective of the Cash Bonus Program is to motivate the Company’s named executive officers to attain short-term objectives through an annual cash bonus related both to Company and personal performance. On August 11, 2020, the Compensation Committee set target bonus levels under the Cash Bonus Program for Fiscal 2021 at 100% attainment of both Company and personal objectives, as follows: Mr. Lines – 80% of base salary; Mr. Glajch – 50% of base salary; and Mr. Smith – 50% of base salary. Each named executive officer will be eligible to receive anywhere from 0% to 200% of his target bonus level depending on the attainment of such objectives. A summary of the performance goal weightings for the Company’s named executive officers for Fiscal 2021 is as follows:

James R. Lines   40%   40%   20%
