(e) On December 10, 2020, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Compensation Committee”) of EMCORE Corporation (the “Company”) approved the EMCORE Corporation Fiscal 2021 Bonus Plan (the “2021 Bonus Plan”), which sets forth the terms of the fiscal 2021 annual incentive bonus opportunity for eligible employees of the Company. Under the 2021 Bonus Plan, the Company’s executive officers are eligible to receive cash bonus awards that are determined based on the Company’s non-GAAP net income, as defined in the 2021 Bonus Plan, for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2021. For the Company’s executive officers, the amount, if any, of the annual cash bonus payable under the 2021 Bonus Plan will be based 100% on the Company’s achievement of such metric. Under the 2021 Bonus Plan, the target bonus opportunity for Jeffrey Rittichier, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, is 90% of his annual base salary at the end of the fiscal year, the target bonus opportunity for Tom Minichiello, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, is 50% of his annual base salary at the end of the fiscal year, the target bonus opportunity for Albert Lu, the Company’s SVP, Engineering, is 60% of his annual base salary at the end of the fiscal year and the target bonus for Ian Black, the Company's SVP, Operations, is 60% of his annual base salary at the end of the fiscal year. The amount of cash bonus payable to each executive officer under the 2021 Bonus Plan will range from 0% to 120% of the executive’s target bonus opportunity based on the Company’s non-GAAP net income, as defined in the 2021 Bonus Plan, for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2021 relative to a target established by the Compensation Committee. With respect to the Company’s executive officers, bonuses, if any, under the 2021 Bonus Plan will be payable in cash after the end of the 2021 fiscal year and no later than March 15, 2022.
The foregoing description of the 2021 Bonus Plan is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the 2021 Bonus Plan filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
In addition, on December 11, 2020, the Compensation Committee approved an increase to the base salary of Mr. Rittichier from $450,000 to the amount of $475,000, Mr. Minichiello from $350,000 to the amount of $365,000, Mr. Lu from $294,000 to the amount of $310,000 and Mr. Black from $273,000 to the amount of $285,000, in each case effective upon the date of such approval.
