Approval of Fiscal Year 2019 Executive Incentive Plan
On November 7, 2018, the Compensation Committee (the “Compensation Committee”) of the Board of Directors of Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”), approved the Fiscal Year 2019 Executive Incentive Plan (the “Incentive Plan”). The Incentive Plan establishes cash incentive awards that may be earned by senior management approved for participation in the Incentive Plan, including the Named Executive Officers of the Company, based on the Company’s achievement of certain corporate performance metrics during the Company’s 2019 fiscal year (the “Fiscal Year”). The Incentive Plan also establishes minimum performance metrics that must be achieved before any incentives are awarded under the Incentive Plan. The Incentive Plan’s annual corporate goals, which are approved in advance by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company, involve achievement of certain revenue and non-GAAP operating income metrics during the Fiscal Year.
Under the Incentive Plan, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and its Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer are eligible to earn cash incentive awards equaling one-hundred and sixty percent (160%) and one-hundred percent (100%), respectively, of their base salaries for the Fiscal Year if the Company achieves its target performance metrics during the Fiscal Year, with the opportunity to earn up to a maximum of two (2) times their target awards to the extent the Company exceeds its target performance metrics during the Fiscal Year. The Company’s Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, and its Chief Technology Officer (each a Named Executive Officer of the Company within the meaning of the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) are eligible to earn cash incentive awards equaling eighty percent (80%) of their base salaries for the Fiscal Year if the Company achieves its target performance metrics during the Fiscal Year, with the opportunity to earn up to a maximum of two (2) times their target awards to the extent the Company exceeds its target performance metrics during the Fiscal Year. Upon completion of the Fiscal Year, the Compensation Committee will determine the extent to which the Company’s performance goals for the Fiscal Year were attained, review the CEO’s recommended payouts under the Incentive Plan, and approve any awards made under the Incentive Plan. In addition, the Compensation Committee has discretion to approve the issuance of the Company’s common stock in lieu of cash for all, or a part of, an award that is made under the Incentive Plan.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
