The above increases in base salary are effective the first pay period that includes October 1, 2013. Mr. M. Batten's base salary will be paid through December 31, 2013, which will be the last day of his employment with the Company.

In each case, the target incentive bonus is based on the FY 2014 Corporate Incentive Plan ("CIP"), which the Committee adopted and approved on July 25, 2013. The CIP establishes the target bonuses for the named executive officers based on the following factors and relative weights for each factor: corporate economic profit (70%), inventory turns (15%) and sales growth (15%). In no event will an incentive payment under the CIP exceed 200% of the target. An incentive payment to a named executive officer under the CIP may be increased or decreased by up to 20%, at the discretion of the Chief Executive Officer (except that an increase or decrease of the CIP payment to the CEO shall be at the discretion of the Committee).

On July 25, 2013, the Compensation Committee also issued performance stock awards to named executive officers of the Company under the Company's 2010 Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan (the "Plan"). A target number of 14,104 performance shares were awarded to the named executive officers (subject to adjustment as described below), allocated as follows: Mr. J. Batten, 5,749 performance shares; Mr. Eperjesy, 3,106 performance shares; Mr. Feiertag, 2,973 performance shares; and Mr. Bratel, 2,276 performance shares. The performance shares will be paid out if the Company achieves certain economic profit objectives (measured as the difference between the cumulative net operating profit after taxes and the cumulative capital charge) for the cumulative three fiscal year period ending June 30, 2016. If the Company achieves the maximum 3-year cumulative economic profit goal, a recipient will earn a maximum number of performance shares. If the Company achieves the target 3-year cumulative economic profit goal, a recipient will earn the target number of performance shares. If the Company achieves the threshold 3-year cumulative economic profit goal, a recipient will earn a threshold number of performance shares. No performance shares will be earned for performance below the 3-year cumulative economic profit threshold and no additional performance shares will be earned for performance exceeding the 3-year cumulative economic profit maximum. In the event that the Company's economic profit is between the achievement levels set forth, the percentage of performance shares awarded shall be determined by interpolation. The maximum number of performance shares that can be earned by the named executive officers pursuant to this award is 16,927. A copy of the form of the Performance Stock Award Grant Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

At its July 25, 2013 meeting, the Compensation Committee also issued performance stock units to named executive officers of the Company under the Plan.

Batten, 5,749 performance stock units; Mr. Eperjesy, 3,106 performance stock units; Mr. Feiertag, 2,973 performance stock units; and Mr. Bratel, 2,276 performance stock units. The performance stock units will be paid out if the Company achieves certain economic profit objectives (measured as the difference between the cumulative net operating profit after taxes and the cumulative capital charge) for the cumulative three fiscal year period ending June 30, 2016. If the Company achieves the maximum 3-year cumulative economic profit goal, a recipient will earn a maximum number of performance stock units. If the Company achieves the target 3-year cumulative economic profit goal, a recipient will earn the target number of performance stock units. If the Company achieves the threshold 3-year cumulative economic profit goal, a recipient will earn a threshold number of performance stock units. No performance stock units will be earned for performance below the 3-year cumulative economic profit threshold and no additional performance stock units will be earned for performance exceeding the 3-year cumulative economic profit maximum. In the event that the Company's economic profit is between the achievement levels set forth, the percentage of performance stock units awarded shall be determined by interpolation. The maximum number of performance stock units that can be earned by the named executive officers pursuant to this award is 47,935. A copy of the form of the Performance Stock Unit Award Grant Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2 and incorporated herein by reference.

At its July 25, 2013 meeting, the Compensation Committee also issued restricted stock grants to named executive officers of the Company under the Plan.
