Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Principal Officers.

(e) Executive Compensation

The Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company and the Board took the actions described below relating to the compensation of the Company's named executive officers (as set forth in the Company's most recent proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission) and certain other executive officers of the Company.

The Board recently approved the base salary, performance measures and target incentive payouts for 2024 as well as long term equity incentives for the CEO. The Committee approved the same for other executive officers of the Company. Base salaries for Dr. Scherbakov and Messrs. Mammen and Lopresti did not change from 2023 levels. Base salaries for Dr. Ovtchinnikov and Mr. Ness increased 5% from 2023 levels. The 2024 base salaries of the named executive officers are presented below:

NameBase Salary 2023Base Salary 2024
Eugene Scherbakov, Ph.D.€800,000€800,000
Timothy P.V. Mammen$538,700$538,700
Angelo P. Lopresti$485,500$485,500
Trevor Ness$477,100$501,000
Alexander Ovtchinnikov, Ph.D.$481,000$505,100
    

The approved annual targets and incentive payouts for the Company's named executive officers and other executive officers are governed by the Company’s Senior Executive Annual Incentive Plan for fiscal year 2024 (the “AIP”). Consistent with prior years, the Committee identified two financial performance measures: net sales and adjusted EBIT (excluding equity-based compensation expenses, foreign currency transaction gains and losses and certain charges and write-downs), each as determined under the AIP, and assigned a 50% weighting factor to each financial performance goal.

Under the 2024 AIP, the executive officers can receive cash incentive payments listed in the following table as a percentage of base salaries based upon achievement of the minimum to maximum objectives for both financial performance measures and for individual performance. Target bonuses as a percentage of salary remain the same as 2023 levels for the named executive officers.

(2)Maximum award payout is 225% of the target award (financial plus individual).
The Committee may make adjustments under the AIP, including to our overall corporate performance goals, and the ways that our actual performance results are calculated that may cause differences between the numbers used for our performance goals and the numbers reported in our financial statements.

The Committee also approved grants of long-term incentives in the form of equity awards. The 2024 equity-based awards consist of service-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”) weighted 50% and performance-based stock units (“PSUs”)



weighted 50%. The RSUs vest annually over three years on March 1, 2025, 2026 and 2027. To the extent earned, the PSUs vest March 1, 2027.

The Committee decided to weight the PSUs 50% on revenue and 50% on operating margin. PSUs based upon revenue well be eligible to be earned over three one-year performance periods starting on January 1, 2024. The PSUs based upon operating margin will be eligible to be earned based upon the Company's average annual operating margin measured over the same performance periods. The PSUs specify a target, threshold and maximum for each performance metric. In order to provide additional incentive, to further align the interests of the named executive officers with our stockholders and to motivate the named executive officers to drive continued future performance in 2024 and beyond, the Committee approved a one-time, additional LTI target value opportunity in 2024 for the named executive officers other than the CEO. The additional target value opportunities for these named executive officers represent 40% of the regular annual LTI award.

The following table lists the RSUs and PSUs awarded to the named executive officers:
