Fiscal Year 2013 Bonus Criteria

On November 8, 2012, the Human Resources and Compensation Committee (the "Committee") of the Registrant's Board of Directors approved the criteria for fiscal 2013 payouts under the Registrant's two bonus plans for its executive officers: (i) the Performance Compensation Plan (the "PCP") and (ii) the Incentive Compensation Plan For Executive Officers (the "ICP"). The Committee had previously approved the fiscal 2013 bonus targets for the executive officers as follows: V.L. Richey, Jr. - $525,000, or 40% of fiscal 2013 total cash compensation; G.E. Muenster - $319,000, or 38% of fiscal 2013 total cash compensation; and A.S. Barclay - $153,200, or 33% of fiscal 2013 total cash compensation. Each executive officer's bonus target is equally divided between the PCP and the ICP.

The actual amounts of the executive officers' fiscal 2013 bonuses will vary from their respective bonus targets depending on the extent to which the Registrant's fiscal year 2013 performance exceeds or falls below the following criteria.

1. PCP: The evaluation criteria under the PCP are generally certain specified financial or operational measures. For fiscal 2013, criteria are specified and weighted as follows: Cash Flow 50%, and Entered Orders 50%. Each of the bonus target multipliers for Cash Flow and for Entered Orders under the PCP for fiscal 2013 ranges from 0.2 to 2.0 times the bonus target based on a matrix specifying particular Cash Flow or Entered Orders thresholds.

2. ICP: The evaluation criteria under the ICP are generally certain financial measures such as earnings per share ("EPS"). Under the ICP, the Committee approved fiscal 2013 EPS as the evaluation criterion. The bonus target multiplier under the ICP for fiscal 2013 ranges from 0.0 to 2.0 times the bonus target based on a matrix specifying particular EPS thresholds.
