Also on February 25, 2021, the Committee approved an incentive cash bonus plan (the “Plan”) for the calendar year commencing January 1, 2021, pursuant to which each eligible executive officer of the Company will receive an incentive award based on the level of attainment of specified Company performance goals. The aggregate amount of the award will be determined based on the level of attainment of a range of non-GAAP earnings per share and revenue for the year. A specified minimum amount of each of the non-GAAP earnings per share and revenue goals must be achieved before payment of an award under the Plan. The actual aggregate amount of the award earned by an executive officer for the calendar year will range from $0 to the maximum amount established for that officer depending on the level of attainment of the performance goals.
