COMMISSION PROGRAM SEAN NICHOLAS
(Effective January 1, 2013)
|Position Title:||Vice President Sales|
|Description:||Responsible for the Companys sales efforts directed towards existing customers.|
Sales of Software and Hardware to Existing Customers:
With respect to each contract for the sale of a software license and/or hardware to an existing customer of CPSI (whether pursuant to a standard sales contract or a SaaS contract), the commission rate shall be 0.25% of CPSIs gross profit or anticipated gross profit, as the case may be, from such sale, calculated as of the date of completion of installation. In the event that CPSIs gross profit from sales of software licenses and hardware to existing customers exceeds $28,100,000 in a calendar year, the commission rate will increase to 0.75% of the gross profit from sales exceeding $28,100,000 in such year. Commissions are earned at the time of completion of installation of the applicable software/hardware. The timing of payment of earned commissions shall be in accordance with Section 2 below.
|2.||Timing of Commission Payments:|
|A.||General: Subject to Section 2.B through Section 2.D. below, commissions earned pursuant to Section 1 above will be paid to the employee on a monthly basis.|
|B.||Payment Default By Customer: In the event that a customer defaults on payment for software licenses or hardware, all commissions previously paid to the employee on the defaulted customer account shall be deducted from the employees future commission payments. In the event that partial payment due from a customer is received, the amount of prior commissions to be deducted from future commissions will be pro-rata based on the amount of the payment received. For example, if a customer pays only 60% of an invoice, then the employee will retain 60% of the commissions received, with the remaining 40% to be withheld from future commission payments.|
|C.||Post-Employment Commission Payments: Except as noted in Section 2.D., below, commissions will not be paid to, or on behalf of, any individual who is no longer an employee of CPSI, regardless of the reason for the employees termination of employment (i.e., whether voluntary, involuntary or otherwise).|
|D.||Death: In the event of the death of the employee while employed in good standing with CPSI, the following commissions will be paid to the employees estate/beneficiary(ies) as listed in the employees last will and testament (or if no such will, to the employees spouse, if any; if not, to the employees estate) at the same time that such payments would have been paid to the employee if the employee had not died:|
|(i)||Commissions from the installation of software licenses and hardware at new customers during the 90-day period following the employees death (to the extent that a contract for such installation was executed prior to the employees death); and|
|(ii)||Commissions from the installation of software licenses and hardware at existing customers during the 90-day period following the employees death.|
|3.||Exemption From Section 409A:|
This Commission Program is intended to be exempt from Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
This Commission Program shall remain in full force and effect unless and until modified or terminated by the CPSI in its sole discretion.
