Management Incentive Plans (MIPs)

On April 17, 2015, the Company’s Compensation and Stock Option Committee (“Compensation Committee”) approved individual MIPs for Dr. Louis F. Centofanti, our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), John Lash, our Chief Operating Officer (“COO”), and Ben Naccarato, our Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”). The MIPs are effective as of January 1, 2015. Each MIP provides guidelines for the calculation of annual cash incentive based compensation, subject to Compensation Committee oversight and modification. Each MIP awards cash compensation based on achievement of performance thresholds, with the amount of such compensation established as a percentage of base salary. The potential target performance compensation ranges from 5% to 100% or $13,556 to $271,115 of the 2015 base salary for the CEO, 5% to 100% or $10,750 to $215,000 of the 2015 base salary for the COO, and 5% to 100% or $10,712 to $214,240 of the 2015 base salary for the CFO.

The performance compensation payable under each MIP is based upon achievement of certain levels of corporate revenue, EBITDA, health and safety, and environmental compliance (permit and license violations) targets and objectives during fiscal year 2015 from our continuing operations, with such targets and objectives approved by the Company’s Board of Directors. EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measurement, is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Compensation Committee believe performance compensation payable under each of the MIPs should be based on achievement of EBITDA target as this target provides better indicator of operating performance as it excludes certain non-cash items. EBITDA has certain limitations as it does not reflect all items of income or cash flows that affect the Company’s financial performance under GAAP.

Performance compensation is paid on or about 90 days after year-end, or sooner, based on finalization of our audited financial statements for 2015. If the MIP participant’s employment with the Company is voluntarily or involuntarily terminated prior to a regularly scheduled MIP compensation payment date, no MIP payment will be payable for and after such period.  The Compensation Committee retains the right to modify, change or terminate each MIP and may adjust the various target amounts described below, at any time and for any reason. The total paid to the CEO, COO, and CFO will not exceed 50% of the Company’s pre-tax net income prior to the calculation of performance compensation.

Perma-Fix Medical S.A.

On April 30, 2015, Perma-Fix Medical S.A. officially accepted a grant funding awarded by the National Centre for Research and Development (“NCRD”) in Poland to further develop and commercialize a novel prototype generator for the production of Tc-99m for use in cancer and cardiac imaging (“Generator Project”). The Generator Project is under the leadership and supervision of Perma-Fix Medical S.A. and consists of four additional entities from Poland, including: the National Centre for Nuclear Research - Radioisotope Centre POLATOM in Otwock; the Institute for Biopolymers and Chemical Fibers - Department of Biopolymers in Lódz; Warsaw Medical University - Department of Nuclear Administration; and the Institute of Industrial Organic Chemistry Branch in Pszczyna (together known as the “Generator Project team”). The total Generator Project budget is approximately $3,700,000, of which NCRD’s subsidy grant for the Generator Project is approximately $2,800,000 and will be funded by NCRD over a four year period. If needed, Perma-Fix Medical expects to fund any capital requirements in excess of the subsidy grant for the Generator Project allocated by NCRD through the sale of equity. Of the $2,800,000 subsidy grant allocation, Perma-Fix Medical S.A. will directly receive approximately $800,000 and the remaining amount will be allocated to other members of the Generator Project team to be used solely to support technology development and testing of the Generator Project. An initial subsidy grant for the Generator Project in the amount of approximately $240,000 is expected to be funded by NCRD during the second quarter of 2015, with the remaining subsidy grant to be funded based on milestone completion of the Generator Project.
