KRATON PERFORMANCE POLYMERS, INC. FILES (8-K) Disclosing Change in Directors or Principal Officers
(Edgar Glimpses Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
Establishment of Targets for 2014 Cash Incentive Plan. On February 12, 2014, our Compensation Committee approved the 2014 Performance Targets under the Kraton Performance Polymers, Inc. 2013 Cash Incentive Plan for the Kraton Leadership Team, which includes our named executive officers.
For the bonus year that ends December 31, 2014, the Committee has established the following Target Bonus amounts for our named executive officers: Named Executive Officer Target Bonus Kevin M. Fogarty 1.0 x Base Salary Stephen E. Tremblay .65 x Base Salary Holger R. Jung .60 x Base Salary Lothar P. F. Freund .60 x Base Salary G. Scott Lee .55x Base Salary Stephen W. Duffy .50x Base Salary As described more fully below, if the Business Performance Targets are achieved at the maximum, or "stretch," levels, each named executive officer's actual bonus can be up to two times his Target Bonus.
The Compensation Committee has established Business Performance Targets for the company and has assigned a percentage weighting to the achievement of each. For 2014, cash incentive compensation will be based on the achievement of Adjusted EBITDA at ECRC (75% weighting) and the achievement of Operating Cash Flow (25% weighting).
The Compensation Committee has also established threshold, target and stretch multipliers for each of these Business Performance Targets, which if achieved, will provide a bonus multiplier that can range from 0.5 if the minimum, or threshold, level of performance is achieved, to 2.0, assuming the company meets or exceeds the maximum, or stretch, goal. Based on such targets and multipliers and assuming the threshold performance level is achieved, the bonus for any given named executive officer will be calculated using the following formula: Adj. EBITDA at ECRC Bonus Multiplier x Target Bonus x 0.75 + Op. Cash Flow Bonus Multiplier x Target Bonus x 0.25 Total Annual Cash Incentive Compensation Any such bonuses will be paid in cash, and we expect that such payments, if any, will be made in first quarter 2015.
Establishment of NEO Base Compensation for 2014. On February 12, 2014, our Compensation Committee established annual base compensation for our executive officers, including our named executive officers. For 2014, Mr. Fogarty's base compensation will be $875,000, Mr. Tremblay's will be $450,000, Dr. Jung's will be $375,000, Dr. Freund's will be $350,000, Mr. Lee's will be $320,000, and Mr. Duffy's will be $320,000. Changes are effective April 1, 2014.
