Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exh


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

On July 24, 2013, the board of directors and the compensation committee approved an Executive Annual Incentive Bonus Plan (Fiscal Year 2014) for Mark Fusco, our President and Chief Executive Officer, and for certain other members of our senior management, including each of our other executive officers: Mark P. Sullivan, our Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; Antonio J. Pietri, our Executive Vice President, Field Operations; Manolis E. Kotzabasakis, our Executive Vice President, Products; and Frederic

G. Hammond, our Senior Vice President and General Counsel. Each such plan was identical, except for the amount of the executive's target award.

The purpose of these fiscal 2014 plans is to motivate and reward performance for the achievement of the company's performance objectives for fiscal 2014. Payments under each plan are based upon the achievement of predetermined annual corporate financial metrics consisting of target amounts for growth in total license contract value and cash flow from operations. Each of the target amounts is established by the board and is weighted at 50% for purposes of determining each executive's bonus. In order for any bonus to be payable under a plan, we must achieve at least 70% of each of the target amounts.

Performance against the corporate financial metrics will be evaluated mid-year and at year-end. Each executive has the potential for a mid-year payment, in an amount not to exceed 25% of the executive's annual bonus target, based on performance against mid-year target amounts for the corporate performance metrics. The year-end payment is based on total annual performance against the annual performance targets, less any payment received at mid-year. If an executive's employment terminates prior to the end of the performance period, eligibility for any payment will be subject to the retention agreement then in effect between us and the executive.

Under the plans, the compensation committee or the Board may make a discretionary award to an executive in such amount as the compensation committee determines to be appropriate and in the best interests of our company.

A copy of the form of the Executive Annual Incentive Bonus Plan (Fiscal Year 2014) is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
