*Mr. Leitzke's employment with the Company terminated on September 30, 2013. Under the FY 14 EEIP, participants may be granted an award of restricted stock units ("RSUs"), of which 25% vest based on the passage of time with a continuous service requirement and 75% will be earned based on the achievement of performance criteria which has been established by the Human Resources and Compensation Committee and the Board with additional time-based vesting after the performance determinations have been made. The portion of the award subject to time-based vesting will vest in one-third increments beginning one year after the date of grant and annually thereafter. The number of RSUs to be earned based on performance will be determined based upon achievement of Company financial performance metrics for gross margins and free cash flows during the fiscal year ending on September 30, 2014 as determined by the Human Resources and Compensation Committee and the Board. Once the performance determinations have been made, the performance-based portion of the award that has been earned will be subject to additional time-based vesting, with 50% vesting on the second anniversary of the grant date and 50% vesting on the third anniversary of the grant date. Each financial metric is weighted and contains a minimum achievement threshold, which if not met would result in no vesting as to that metric's weighted percentage of RSUs. If the Company's performance exceeds the target threshold for either metric, the participants could achieve up to 200% of the number of performance-based RSUs.
