Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
(e) In December 2015 the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Committee”) determined that Stanton E. Ross would be eligible for a bonus of up to $350,000 in 2016 based on his performance during the year. On January 29, 2016, the Committee determined that $150,000 would be eligible for granting based on the Committee’s review of his performance only after the Company achieved positive EBITDA for one quarter in 2016. On May 9, 2016 the Committee waived this requirement as a result of other contributions Mr. Ross had made to the Company and he has now received the entire bonus amount for which he was eligible in 2016.
