2016 Senior Management Incentive Plan
On February 23, 2015, the Compensation Committee of the Board (the “Compensation Committee”) of Luna Innovations Incorporated (the “Company”) approved a senior management incentive plan (the “2016 Incentive Compensation Plan”) for the Company’s senior management for the year ending December 31, 2016.
The Compensation Committee adopted the 2016 Incentive Compensation Plan for the Company’s senior management, who, among others, include My E. Chung, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Dale E. Messick, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, and Scott A. Graeff, the Company’s Chief Strategy Officer (collectively, the “Named Executive Officers”), for the year ending December 31, 2016. The 2016 Incentive Compensation Plan, as applied to the Named Executive Officers, is designed to award those officers for achieving specified corporate and qualitative objectives. Pursuant to the 2016 Incentive Compensation Plan, the Compensation Committee set the target cash bonus payout for each of the Named Executive Officers at 50% of such officer’s base salary for 2016, with a minimum payout equal to 25% of such salary and a maximum payout equal to 75% of such salary. No bonuses will be paid, however, unless the Company’s operating income (loss) exceeds a specified threshold amount.
If the threshold operating loss target is achieved, bonuses under the 2016 Incentive Compensation Plan will be based upon whether the Company achieves consolidated revenue exceeding specified amounts, whether the Company achieves consolidated operating income (loss) exceeding specified amounts, and qualitative objectives.
Amounts earned under the 2016 Incentive Compensation Plan, if any, would be paid following approval by the Compensation Committee and the audit of the Company’s financial statements for the 2016 year.
The foregoing description of the 2016 Incentive Compensation Plan is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the 2016 Incentive Compensation Plan, which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending March 31, 2016.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
