ASPEN TECHNOLOGY,INC. (NASDAQ:AZPN) Files An 8-K Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain OfficersItem 5.02.
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On July 26, 2018, the board of directors and the compensation committee of the board approved an Executive Bonus Plan for fiscal 2019 for our President and Chief Executive Officer and for certain other executives designated by us, including our Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer and our Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, who are named executive officers.
The purpose of the fiscal 2019 plan is to motivate and reward performance for achieving our financial and operational objectives for fiscal 2019. Payments under the plan are based upon the achievement of predetermined annual corporate financial metrics consisting of target amounts for growth in annual spend and free cash flow. Each of the target amounts is established by the board and is weighted at 60% and 40%, respectively, for purposes of determining each participant’s bonus. In order for any bonus to be payable with respect to a target amount, we must achieve at least 70% of the target amount.
Performance against the corporate financial metrics will be evaluated mid-year and at year-end. Each participant has the potential for a mid-year payment, in an amount not to exceed 25% of the annual bonus target, based on performance against mid-year target amounts. The year-end payment is based on annual performance against the annual performance targets, less any payment received at mid-year.
Under the plan, the compensation committee may make a discretionary award to a participant in such amount as the compensation committee determines to be appropriate and in the best interests of our company.
A copy of the form of the Executive Bonus Plan for fiscal 2019 is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
