2021 Executive Cash-Based Performance Incentives

    On February 19, 2021, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of Luminex Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), approved the 2021 cash-based performance incentive opportunities under the Luminex Corporation 2018 Management Incentive Plan for the Company’s named executive officers and certain other executives (the “Management Incentive Plan”).

For 2021, the performance incentives or incentive opportunities under the Management Incentive Plan are based entirely upon Company financial objectives (the “Company Financial Goals”). Achievement, in each case, is determined by the Committee and subject to such adjustments and exclusions as determined by the Committee. The Company Financial Goals are based on a matrix of revenue and operating profit for the year ending December 31, 2021 and are the same for each participant.

The total target awards for the Company’s named executive officers and certain other executives in 2021 are weighted 100% for the achievement of the Company Financial Goals. The target bonuses for each named executive officer, reflected as a percentage of 2021 earned base salary, are as follows:

NameTitleTarget Bonus
Nachum ShamirPresident and Chief Executive Officer100%
Harriss T. CurrieSenior Vice President, Finance, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer55%
Randall MeyersSenior Vice President, Global Manufacturing and Quality50%
Richard W. Rew IISenior Vice president, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary; Chief Compliance Officer50%
Todd C. BennettSenior Vice President, Global Sales and Customer Operations50%
Following the end of the fiscal year, the Committee will determine whether and the extent to which the applicable targets were met. The Company Financial Goals are subject to an over/underachievement scale with possible payouts of 0% to 200% of the target bonus for the Company Financial Goals based on financial results between specified minimum and maximum performance levels of the performance targets. The minimum threshold represents the level of Company financial performance below which no incentive under the Management Incentive Plan will be paid for 2021 and is established annually by the Committee. The target threshold represents the level where the actual incentive award paid equals the targeted award and the maximum threshold represent the performance level where the actual incentive award paid equals the maximum amount permitted under the Management Incentive Plan. Minimum payouts for minimum threshold performance start at 30% of the target value for the Company Financial Goals.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
