2.           COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS

2.1           Salary

The Executive will earn an annual salary of $245,000.00 USD (the “Base Salary”).  The Base Salary will be paid periodically in accordance with the Company’s normal payroll practices and will be subject to the usual, applicable statutory and contractual withholdings.  The Executive’s salary will be subject to review and adjustments made based upon the Company’s normal performance review practices.

2.2           Probationary Period

For the first three months, the Executive’s employment will be probationary (the “Probationary Period”).  During the Probation Period, the Executive’s employment may be terminated at any time with or without cause and without advance warning, notice, pay in lieu, severance or any other compensation whatsoever.

2.3           Short Term Incentive

The Executive shall be eligible to participate in any incentive program that is applicable to executives of the Company, including the Company’s Short-Term Incentive Plan (“STI Plan”).  The Company may make changes to its incentive programs, including the STI Plan, without notice in accordance with its business needs, and any changes will not constitute a breach of the terms of employment. The target annual incentive payment for the Executive under the current STI Plan is fifty percent (50%) of Base Salary for the year. This payment is based on the achievement of both sales and individual objectives. The percentage performance target for the achievement of sales objectives is seventy five percent (75%), and the percentage performance target for the achievement of individual objectives is twenty five percent (25%).

In 2012, however the total STI bonus will be prorated to represent only the percentage of time left in 2012 between the Executive’s Start Date and the end of the calendar year. In addition, in 2012, only, the percentage performance target for the achievement of sales objectives will be 50% and the percentage performance target for the achievement of individual objectives will also be 50%. Individual objectives will be mutually agreed upon by Executive and CEO by August 31, 2012.

Further, in 2012, only, Executive will be paid his percentage performance for the achievement of sales objectives based on the following:

 
-
0% of executive’s target sales objective bonus incentive if the Company’s 2012 sales do not reach $12.3M.

 
-
100% of Executive’s sales objective target bonus incentive if the Company’s 2012 sales equal or exceed $13.1M, or

 
-
A percentage of Executive’s sales objective target bonus for the achievement of sales exceeding $12.3M divided by the difference between the Company’s 2012 sales goal ($13.1M) and $12.3M (for example, an achievement of 2012 sales of $12.6M would pay Executive 37.5% ($0.3M/$0.8M) of his sales achievement allocation (50%) of his prorated 50% total year STI).

2.4           Stock Options

It will be recommended at the first meeting of the Board, following the Start Date and after successful completion of the Probationary Period, that the Company grant the Executive an option to purchase eight hundred thousand (800,000) shares of the Company’s Common Stock at an exercise price per share equal to the fair market value per share on the date of the grant (the “Option”).  The Option will be subject to applicable regulatory and shareholder approval and if such approval is not granted the Executive will not be entitled to the Option or any other compensation.  The Option will be scheduled to vest as to 25% of the shares subject to the Option one year after the Start Date, and as to 1/48th of the shares subject to the Option monthly thereafter on the same day of the month as the Start Date (and if there is no corresponding day, the last day of the month), so that the Option will be fully vested and exercisable four (4) years from the Start Date, subject to the Executive continuing to be a Service Provider (as defined in the Option Plan) through the relevant vesting dates.  The Option will be subject to the terms, definitions and provisions of the Company's 2008 Stock Option Plan (the “Option Plan”) and the stock option agreement by and between the Executive and the Company (the “Option Agreement”), both of which documents are incorporated herein by reference.

As the value of any grant of stock options will be based on market value and other factors, the Company makes no representation or guarantee that any grant of stock options (including the Option) will attain or result in any particular value or compensation to the Executive and the Company is not liable to the Executive for any loss or failure to gain from the grant, retention or exercise of any stock options (including the Option).

During the term of this Agreement and effective the “Start Date”, the Company will make available to the Executive the insured life and health benefit plans comparable to those provided to other executives of the Company (the “Benefits”).  The terms and conditions of the Benefits (including eligibility) will be determined by the plans or policies from time to time established or purchased by the Company.  Where any benefit is provided through an insured plan, the liability of the Company will be limited to paying its share of the applicable premium.  The Company may cancel or make changes to the Benefits without notice in accordance with its business needs, and any cancellation or changes will not constitute a breach of the terms of employment.

2.6           Vacation

3.8           Section 409A

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no severance pay or benefits to be paid or provided to the Executive, if any, pursuant to this Agreement that, when considered together with any other severance payments or separation benefits, are considered deferred compensation under Internal Revenue Code Section 409A, and the final regulations and any guidance promulgated thereunder or any state law equivalent (“Section 409A”) (together, the “Deferred Payments”) will be paid or otherwise provided until the Executive has a “separation from service” within the meaning of Section 409A.  Similarly, no severance payable to the Executive, if any, pursuant to this Agreement that otherwise would be exempt from Section 409A pursuant to Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(b)(9) will be payable until the Executive has a “separation from service” within the meaning of Section 409A.

Any severance payments or benefits under this Agreement that would be considered Deferred Payments will be paid on, or, in the case of installment, will not commence until, the 60th day following the Executive’s separation from service, or, if later, such time as required by the next paragraph.  Except as required by the next paragraph, any installment payments that would have been made to the Executive during the 60-day period immediately following the Executive’s separation from service but for the preceding sentence will be paid to the Executive on the 60th day following the Executive’s separation from service and the remaining payments shall be made as provided in this Agreement.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if the Executive is a “specified employee” within the meaning of Section 409A at the time of his termination (other than due to death), then the Deferred Payments, if any, that are payable within the first six (6) months following the Executive’s separation from service, will become payable on the first payroll date that occurs on or after the date six (6) months and one (1) day following the date of his separation from service.  All subsequent Deferred Payments, if any, will be payable in accordance with the payment schedule applicable to each payment or benefit.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if the Executive dies following his separation from service, but prior to the 6-month anniversary of the separation from service, then any payments delayed in accordance with this paragraph will be payable in a lump sum as soon as administratively practicable after the date of the Executive’s death and all other Deferred Payments will be payable in accordance with the payment schedule applicable to each payment or benefit.  Each payment, instalment and benefit payable under this Agreement is intended to constitute a separate payment for purposes of Section 1.409A-2(b)(2) of the Treasury Regulations.

 
7

 
 
Any amount paid under this Agreement that qualifies as a payment made as a result of an involuntary separation from service pursuant to Section 1.409A-1(b)(9)(iii) of the Treasury Regulations that does not exceed the Section 409A Limit will not constitute Deferred Payments for purposes of clause (i) above.  For purposes of this Agreement, “Section 409A Limit” will mean two (2) times the lesser of: (i) the Executive’s annualized compensation based upon the annual rate of pay paid to the Executive during his taxable year preceding the taxable year of his separation from service as determined under Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-1(b)(9)(iii)(A)(1) and any Internal Revenue Service guidance issued with respect thereto; or (ii) the maximum amount that may be taken into account under a qualified plan pursuant to Section 401(a)(17) of the Internal Revenue Code for the year in which the Executive’s separation from service occurred.

The foregoing provisions are intended to be exempt from or comply with the requirements of Section 409A so that none of the severance payments and benefits to be provided hereunder will be subject to the additional tax imposed under Section 409A, and any ambiguities or ambiguous terms herein will be interpreted to be exempt or so comply.  The Company and the Executive agree to work together in good faith to consider amendments to this Agreement and to take such reasonable actions which are necessary, appropriate or desirable to avoid imposition of any additional tax or income recognition prior to actual payment to the Executive under Section 409A.

3.9           Benefits

The Benefits will cease on the date of termination of the employment relationship between the Parties, and the Company will have no obligation to extend the Benefits.  In the event the Executive is terminated pursuant to Section 3.1 of the Agreement, the Company will continue medical and dental coverage during the Notice Period provided such benefits can be continued pursuant to the terms of the applicable plan.
