2013 Supplemental Incentive Plan
Clear Channel Communications, Inc. (“CCU”) is an indirect subsidiary of CC Media Holdings, Inc. (“CCMH”). On February 13, 2013, the Compensation Committee of the board of directors of CCMH approved a supplemental incentive plan (the “SIP”) pursuant to which a limited number of employees of CCMH and its subsidiaries are eligible to receive an additional bonus opportunity for 2013 based on their respective achievement of supplemental performance criteria established for each participant by the Compensation Committee. The supplemental performance criteria are in addition to the annual performance criteria established by the Compensation Committee for each participant pursuant to CCMH’s 2008 Annual Incentive Plan, but consist of the types of business criteria specified in the definition of “Performance Goals” under CCMH’s 2008 Annual Incentive Plan. Following the conclusion of 2013, based on such supplemental performance criteria, the Compensation Committee, in its sole discretion, will determine the bonus amount, if any, earned, which will be paid 36 months after the date of approval of the supplemental performance criteria by the Compensation Committee. To receive payment of an award under the SIP, a participant must be an active employee of CCMH or its subsidiaries at the time of payment.
John E. Hogan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Media and Entertainment division of CCMH and CCU is a participant in the SIP and is eligible to receive an additional bonus opportunity from CCMH of between $0 and $900,000, based on achievement of the supplemental performance criteria approved by CCMH’s Compensation Committee for Mr. Hogan.
The foregoing summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the summary description of the SIP, a copy of which is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
