Performance-Based Restricted Stock Units
On January 13, 2016, the Committee adopted a new form of Performance-Based Restricted Stock Unit Agreement (the PRSU Agreement) to grant performance-based restricted stock unit awards (PRSUs) pursuant to the Plan. The PRSUs will be earned and vested over a three-year performance period based upon (a) the Companys Adjusted EBITDA performance for the third year of the performance period (i.e., the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018 (fiscal 2018)), where Adjusted EBITDA means the Adjusted EBITDA as defined for purposes of the Companys earnings release disseminated to its stockholders and furnished on a Form 8-K, or similar public disclosure document, as determined by the Committee in its reasonable discretion and (b) the percentage ratio determined where the numerator is the total shareholder return of the Company common stock (expressed as a percentage) and the denominator is the total shareholder return of the Russell 2000/Health Care Index (expressed as a percentage) (Relative TSR) as determined for the period beginning October 1, 2015 and ending September 30, 2018 on the assumption that an investor invested $100 in each of the Companys common stock and the Russell 2000 Healthcare Index on October 1, 2015.
Vested PRSUs will be settled in shares of the Companys common stock. The number of shares earned will range from 0% to 250% of the target award. The percentage level at which the performance conditions are satisfied will be determined by the Committee following the end of fiscal 2018. First, a preliminary percentage vested will be determined based on the achievement of Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2018 as follows:
Level of Adjusted EBITDA
|Preliminary % vested based on
Adjusted EBITDA Performance
Threshold (92.7% of Target)
Target (100% of Target)
Maximum (107.3 % of Target)
To the extent that Adjusted EBITDA is between the threshold and target levels or between the target and maximum levels, the percentage at which the Adjusted EBITDA performance condition is satisfied will be determined on a pro rata basis using straight line interpolation.
Second, the preliminary percentage vested will be modified based upon the Companys relative TSR performance for fiscal 2018. If the Companys Relative TSR is less than 25%, the final percentage vested will be decreased by 25%. If the Companys Relative TSR is 75% or greater, the final percentage vested will be increased by 25%. No adjustment will be made if the Companys Relative TSR is 25% or greater but less than 75%.
If a participants employment is terminated voluntarily (other than for good reason or due to retirement) or for cause before the end of the three-year performance period, all of the PRSUs will be forfeited. If a participants employment is terminated without cause or for good reason, the time-based vesting component of the PRSUs will vest based on the number of full years of the performance period that have been completed at such time (i.e., 1/3 for one year, 2/3 for two years), but the total number of PRSUs that will be earned is subject to the achievement of the performance goals as described above. If a participants employment is terminated due to death or disability, the entire PRSU award will vest and the participant will receive the target number of shares subject to the award. If a participants employment is terminated due to retirement at more than 60 years of age (or such younger age with the consent of the Committee) following 10 years of service with the Company, or at more than 65 years of age (or such younger age with the consent of the Committee) following five (5) years of service with the Company, then the time-based vesting component of the PRSU award will vest in its entirety, but the total number of PRSUs that will be earned is subject to the achievement of the performance goals as described above. In connection with a Change of Control, as defined in the PRSU Agreement, the PRSUs do not automatically vest and the Committee will have the discretion to adjust PRSUs and certain performance conditions as provided in the Plan.
