Executive Summary


The mission of our Compensation Committee is to ensure that the programs for executive and staff compensation best help the Company achieve its strategic goals and include best practices of our industry.


The objectives of our compensation program are to:


·provide compensation and benefit plans that are equitable to our executives and other employees as well as our shareholders;
·enable us to attract, motivate and retain highly qualified, experienced talent; and
·align our rewards with long term corporate goals as well as shareholder expectations and value.


We strive to reward our named executive officers fairly and competitively through a properly balanced mix of base salary, short-term and long-term incentives, benefits, career growth and development opportunities. We believe this mix drives company performance and assists with employee retention. We do this by weighting the compensation of our named executive officers toward long-term incentives over salary and annual cash incentives. We regularly review our executives’ compensation against our own selected peer group, and we review the composition of our peer group annually. Historically, our compensation program has provided a strong balance of retention and ownership with a direct linkage to the Company’s strategic objectives, operating and shareholder performance.
