Mr. Adelman has served as the Company’s Chief Administrative Officer since May 2008. He served as the Company’s Vice President – Human Resources from November 2005 until May 2008.
The Employment Agreement expires on June 4, 2011, except that it will be renewed automatically for an additional one-year period unless ninety days prior written notice is given by either party in advance of any one-year period. The Employment Agreement provides that, Mr. Adelman’s annual base salary shall continue at the rate of $315,000 per year. Mr. Adelman shall also be eligible to receive an annual bonus pursuant to the terms of our annual bonus plan, with the annual bonus potential to be a target of 50% of his base salary up to a maximum of 100% of base salary, based upon satisfaction of performance goals and bonus criteria to be defined and approved by the Compensation Committee in advance for each fiscal year in accordance with the terms of the applicable bonus plan. In addition, the Employment Agreement provides that Mr. Adelman is eligible to participate in all benefit programs for which senior executives are generally eligible.
Under his Employment Agreement, the Company may terminate Mr. Adelman’s employment for cause or without cause. If Mr. Adelman’s employment is terminated without cause or he resigns for good reason, the Employment Agreement provides Mr. Adelman with, among other things, payment equal to one time his annual base salary in effect immediately prior to the date of termination, plus one time the annual target bonus amount for Mr. Adelman for the fiscal year prior to the year of the termination of his employment, payable in twelve equal monthly installments commencing six months after the date of termination.
The Employment Agreement also contains confidentiality provisions, as well as a covenant not to compete during the employment term and continuing for a period of eighteen months following his date of termination in the event executive is terminated without cause, he voluntarily resigns or resigns for good reason, or the employment period ends.
