Awards for the Executive Officers other than Mr. Silberhorn were granted on April 20, 2022, and the award for Mr. Silberhorn was granted on April 21, 2022. Such restricted stock awards were made pursuant to the shareholder-approved Apogee Enterprises, Inc. 2019 Stock Incentive Plan, as Amended and Restated (2021) (the “Stock Incentive Plan”), a copy of which is on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-8 filed on June 25, 2021.

The shares of restricted stock vest in three equal annual installments commencing on April 30, 2023 (such three-year period is referred to herein as the “Restricted Period”). In the event the executive officer’s employment is terminated prior to the end of the Restricted Period by reason of Retirement (as defined in the award agreement) or involuntary termination without Cause (as defined in the award agreement), the Committee has the right to cause the remaining unvested shares to be accelerated as of the date of such Retirement or involuntary termination without Cause. In the event the executive officer’s employment is terminated prior to the end of the Restricted Period by reason of Disability (as defined in the award agreement) or death, the shares of restricted stock will become immediately vested in full.

In the event of both a Change in Control (as defined in the Stock Incentive Plan) during the Restricted Period and the termination of the executive officer’s employment, either simultaneously or subsequently by the Company without Cause or by the executive officer for Good Reason (as defined in the award agreement) during the Restricted Period, the restrictions with respect to all of the shares held by the executive officer at the time of termination shall lapse and the shares shall immediately vest as of the date of such termination of employment.

The form of award agreement used in connection with restricted stock awards under the Stock Incentive Plan, including the awards to the Executive Officers listed above, a copy of which is on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on April 26, 2021, is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing summary of the restricted stock awards is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the form of award agreement incorporated herein by reference.


Performance Share Awards.

At meetings of the Committee and the Board held on April 20, 2022 and April 21, 2022, the Executive Officers were awarded (i) three-year cash performance awards and (ii) units (“Units”) representing the right to receive shares of common stock of the Company (collectively, the “Performance Awards”). The Performance Awards establish a three-year performance period commencing on February 27, 2022 and ending on March 1, 2025 (the “Performance Period”). The Performance Awards for the Executive Officers other than Mr. Silberhorn were granted on April 20, 2022, and the Performance Award for Mr. Silberhorn was granted on April 21, 2022. The performance metric is return on invested capital. The Performance Awards represent the right to receive (i) a cash payment from the Company and (ii) Units based on the extent the Company achieves the threshold, target and maximum performance level of the performance metric. The dollar amount that may actually become payable, and the number of Units that may actually become issuable, may be between 0% and 200% of the target values specified in the performance award agreement, depending on the extent to which the threshold, target or maximum performance levels of the performance goals are achieved.

Participants will receive a cash payment and Units pursuant to the Performance Awards if the performance metric is achieved at or above the threshold level. The determination of the cash payment and Unit amounts will occur as soon as practicable after the Committee determines whether, and the extent to which, the performance metric has been achieved.

In the event employment is terminated prior to the end of the Performance Period other than by reason of death, Disability or Retirement (as such terms are defined in the award agreement), the Performance Award will be immediately and irrevocably forfeited. In the event employment is terminated prior to the end of the Performance Period by reason of death, Disability or Retirement, the executive officer or the executive officer’s estate, as applicable, will be entitled to receive a pro-rata payment (based on the amount of time elapsed between the beginning of the Performance Period and the date of termination) after the end of the Performance Period based on the level of achievement of the performance metric. In the event the executive officer’s employment is terminated after the Performance Period by reason of death, Disability or Retirement, the executive officer or the executive officer’s estate, as applicable, will be entitled to receive, if not yet paid, the Performance Award.

The Performance Period will end on the date of the Change in Control, and the award will be adjusted by the Committee in its sole discretion. If a Change of Control occurs after the Performance Period, the Company will pay any unpaid amount earned during the performance period.

The Performance Awards are subject to forfeiture or recoupment if the Board, in its sole discretion, determines that events have occurred that are covered by the Company’s Clawback Policy and that forfeiture or recoupment is appropriate.

The Performance Awards were granted pursuant to the Stock Incentive Plan. The form of award agreement is on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission as Exhibit 10.2 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on April 26, 2021, and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing summary of the Performance Awards is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the form of award agreement incorporated herein by reference.

Executive Short-Term Incentive Plan.

At meetings of the Committee and Board held on April 20, 2022 and April 21, 2022, the Company issued awards to the Executive Officers pursuant to the Company’s existing form of annual Executive Short-Term Incentive Plan (the “STIP”). The amount earned by a STIP participant (an “Incentive Award”) will be based on performance against performance metrics, and will be assessed, in the sole discretion of the Committee, based on metrics and weightings that are established at the beginning of each STIP year and communicated to participants. The Incentive Awards for the Executive Officers other than Mr. Silberhorn were granted on April 20, 2022, and the Incentive Award for Mr. Silberhorn was granted on April 21, 2022. The Committee and Board determined that the metrics for the fiscal 2023 Incentive Awards will be net sales and EBIT, consistent with the fiscal 2022 Incentive Awards.

In order for an Incentive Award to be earned, payable and calculable under the terms and conditions of the STIP, a minimum of threshold performance must be earned on at least one of the applicable metrics. The dollar amount that may actually become payable may be between 0% and 200% of the target values specified in the participant memorandum, depending on the extent to which the threshold, target or maximum performance levels of the performance goals are achieved.


The Incentive Awards are subject to forfeiture or recoupment if the Board, in its sole discretion, determines that events have occurred that are covered by the Company’s Clawback Policy and that forfeiture or recoupment is appropriate.

A form of memorandum setting forth the performance metrics under the STIP and the terms and conditions of the STIP are both on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission as Exhibit 10.3 and Exhibit 10.4, respectively, to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on April 26, 2021, and incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing summaries of the memorandum and terms and conditions are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by, the full text of the forms of memorandum and terms and conditions incorporated herein by reference.
