Base Salary

Base salary adjustments shall be made retroactively to January 1, 2014.

Annual Incentive Award

The annual incentive awards are cash awards tied to the financial performance of the Company using both earnings and corporate strategic and operational measures. For each of Messrs. Bernfield, Insoft and Wetzel, 75% of the award will be tied to the Company's AFFO and 25% of the award will be tied to Strategic and Operational Performance.

As used herein, "AFFO" is the diluted FFO per share as defined by NAREIT, adjusted to exclude costs incurred in connection with the repayment of debt and non-cash interest on the exchangeable debentures, and impairment charges associated with asset values. Target AFFO shall be set forth in the Board-approved annual budget. Notwithstanding the above, for the purposes of calculating earned annual incentive awards, AFFO shall be calculated in a consistent fashion with the methodology used in the Company's supplemental financial disclosures. "Strategic and Operational Performance" is the Committee's assessment of the Company's performance in coverage, investment, and management effectiveness.


The award may range from 50% to 200% of the target amount set forth above, and shall be capped at 200% of the target amount. Achieving 85% of the applicable metric shall equate to 50% of the target award, achieving 100% of the metric shall equate to 100% of the target award, achieving 115% of the metric shall equate to 200% of the target award, and award levels shall be extrapolated for achieving between 85% and 115% of the applicable metric.

Long-Term Incentive Award

The long-term incentive awards are awards of performance-based and time-based Restricted Stock Units ("RSUs") under the Company's 2013 Long-Term Incentive Plan. The RSUs for the NEOs will be 75% performance-based and 25% time-based.

The performance-based RSUs are tied to levels of total shareholder return ("TSR") over a three year period (cliff vesting). Relative performance will be measured 50% against companies comprising the NAREIT Equity Index and 50% against the companies comprising the Bloomberg Healthcare REIT Index. Payouts will be based on percentile ranking as compared to the comparison group, with 200% of the target award granted for achieving the 75th percentile or above, 150% of the target award granted for achieving the 63rd percentile or above, 100% of the target award granted for achieving the 50th percentile or above and 50% of the target award granted for achieving the 30th percentile or above.

For purposes of measuring TSR, which is the sum of share price appreciation and dividends, an average of the closing share prices 10 trading days before and 10 trading days after the first of the year at the start of the performance cycle and 10 trading days before and 10 trading days after the ending date of the performance cycle.

The time-based RSUs vest if the NEO is still employed at the end of a three-year period (cliff vesting).

On January 24, 2014, pursuant to the executive compensation program adopted by the Committee, a subcommittee composed of non-employee directors of the Committee approved the grant of the following long-term incentive awards to NEOs:

                                            Time-Based             Performance-Based          Total RSUs in

The RSUs will be granted on the first full calendar day after the release of the Company's 2013 fourth quarter earnings. The number of RSUs to be granted will be equal to the target grant date values set forth in the table above divided by the closing share price of the Company's common stock on the New York Stock Exchange on the first full calendar day after the release of the Company's 2013 fourth quarter earnings (rounding down to the nearest whole number).
