(e) 2017 Cash Bonus Plan
On March 10, 2017, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”)
approved the adoption of the Companys 2017 cash bonus plan (the
2017 Bonus Plan). Per the 2017 Bonus Plan, the Companys executive
officers, and certain other non-executive officers, may be
eligible to receive a cash bonus expressed as a percentage of
their salary in the event the Company achieves certain business
metrics. The current base salaries for Fred E. Durham, III, the
Companys Chief Executive Officer, Phillip L. Milliner, the
Companys Chief Financial Officer, Robert D. Barton, the Companys
Chief Operating Officer, and Ekumene M. Lysonge, the Companys
Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary are $300,000,
$250,000, $225,000, and $240,000, respectively. Payouts under the
2017 Bonus Plan will be earned by achievement of payout targets,
with 50% payable upon the achievement of certain minimum target
levels, and 200% payable upon the achievement of certain maximum
target levels. The bonus payout percentage was set at 75%, 50%,
50% and 40% of base salary for Mr. Durham, Mr. Milliner, Mr.
Barton, and Mr. Lysonge, respectively. For each of Mr. Durham,
Mr. Milliner, Mr. Barton and Mr. Lysonge, the target business
metrics used are based on the Companys Adjusted EBITDA
performance.
The above description of the 2017 Bonus Plan does not purport to
be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to a
summary of such plan which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto.
2017 EEIP Grants to NEOs
On March 10, 2017, the Committee also approved 2017 awards under
the Companys Executive Equity Incentive Program (the EEIP), to

earn variable equity earn-outs based on the Company achieving
certain key performance metrics over a 36-month period from
January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2019 (the Performance
Period). The EEIP was adopted, in 2016, under the Companys 2012

stockholders of the Company. A summary of the terms and
applicable award opportunities granted by the Committee to each

2017 EEIP Awards
The purpose of the EEIP is to provide the eligible participants,

predictable basis.

Companys 2012 Stock Incentive Plan. Eligible participants (as
determined by the Committee) may be members of the Companys
senior executive team and/or such other executives and key

Awards granted to eligible employees under the EEIP may be in the
form of a RSU, PSU, NSO or Performance-Based Stock Option
(“PSO”). As and to the extent determined by the Committee as part
of the annual compensation planning process for participants, the
Companys Chief Executive Officer (CEO) may participate in the
EEIP, as it may be amended from time to time.

consolidated financial statements prepared to GAAP as in effect
from time to time and reported in the Companys annual report on

2)
Free Cash Flow (50% weight).
Cumulative Free Cash Flow (defined by the Company as operating
cash flow minus capital expenditures, for a reporting period)
over the Performance Period will also be derived from the
Companys consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance
with GAAP, as in effect from time to time and reported in the
Companys annual report on Form 10-K, or on Form 10-Q.
The maximum number of PSUs that may be earned during the
Performance Period is 50%. The Committee will review performance
achieved on each Performance Metric annually and at the end of
the Performance Period. The earn-out for each Performance Metric
will be determined by a curve. Achievement between points will be
interpolated.
