Annual Incentive Payment Criteria In Respect of Fiscal Year 2022
Bonus at target (100%) level of achievement of Company Objectives and Individual Objectives is a percentage of base salary to be determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the Committee). The maximum bonus that may be earned will not exceed 2x target level bonus, even if actual performance exceeds the maximum level for any or all performance goals. A participant in the 2022 annual bonus program must be employed by Calyxt as of December 31, 2022 and as of the payment date in order to receive any bonus under the 2022 annual bonus program unless otherwise provided in a written agreement between Calyxt and the participant. Additionally, all bonuses are subject to clawback to the extent required or permitted by law.
Company Objectives 100% for Chief Executive Officer and 50% for non-CEO Plan Participants
Portion of bonus attributable to Company Objectives is weighted as follows: 40% Collaboration (Measure 1), 20% Cash Balance (Measure 2) and 40% Innovation (Measure 3). Each Measure 1-3 will be determined by the Committee.
With respect to the Company Objectives, the Compensation Committee shall have the authority to determine whether (and by what amount) the actual result used to calculate the achievement of a Measure should be adjusted to account for extraordinary events or circumstances (including, without limitation, overall financial market performance factors relative to assumptions used in establishing target Measures), or should otherwise be adjusted in order to be consistent with the purpose or intent of the 2022 annual performance bonus program.
