Form 8-K for S Y BANCORP INC


Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Submission of Matters to a Vote of Sec


On April 24, 2013, shareholders of S.Y. Bancorp, Inc. (the "Company") approved the S.Y. Bancorp, Inc. Annual Cash Incentive Plan (the "Incentive Plan"), including the performance criteria that will be used under that plan to establish goals for covered executives.

The Incentive Plan became effective on April 24, 2013, and shall remain in full force and effect until April 24, 2018, if not sooner terminated by the Board, unless the shareholders of the Company re-approve it within the 12-month period following its expiration, in which case it shall remain in effect for an additional five years after the expiration of that term.

The purpose of the Incentive Plan is to motivate and reward eligible executives by making a portion of their cash compensation dependent on the achievement of certain corporate, business unit and individual performance goals; to further link an executive's interests with those the Company by creating a direct relationship between key Company performance measurements and individual incentive payouts; and to enable the Company to attract and retain superior employees by providing a competitive incentive program that rewards outstanding performance.

The Incentive Plan is designed to qualify cash incentives paid to executive officers of the Company as "performance-based" compensation under Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code. Under Section 162(m) the Company may not receive a federal income tax deduction for annual compensation exceeding $1 million paid to the Chief Executive Officer and certain other highly compensated executive officers to the extent that any of these individuals receives more than $1 million in any one year. However, if the Company pays compensation that is performance-based under Section 162(m), the Company can still receive a federal income tax deduction for the compensation even if it is more than $1 million during a single year. The Incentive Plan allows the Company to pay incentive compensation that is performance-based and therefore fully deductible on the Company's federal income tax return.

The Incentive Plan will be administered by the Compensation Committee or such other committee designated by the Company's Board consistent with the requirements of Section 162(m). The Compensation Committee selects the employees that will be eligible to receive awards under the Incentive Plan. It is expected that all of the Company's executive officers (a group of eight individuals) will participate in the Incentive Plan in any year. If a participant is made eligible for the plan mid-year, the participant will be eligible only for a prorated award, based on the portion of the year worked during the performance period.
