(d) Effective on March 9, 2017, the Board of Directors (the Board) of DexCom, Inc. (DexCom) elected Richard Collins to fill a vacancy on the Board as a Class III director. Mr. Collins shall hold office for a term expiring at the 2017 Annual Meeting of DexComs stockholders, which is the next stockholder meeting at which Class III directors will be elected. There is no arrangement or understanding between Mr. Collins and any other persons pursuant to which Mr. Collins was selected as a director. Mr. Collins is not a party to and does not have any direct or indirect material interest in any transaction with DexCom required to be disclosed under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K. The Board determined that Mr. Collins qualifies as an independent director pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933 and the listing standards of the NASDAQ Stock Market, in each case as currently in effect. Mr. Collins also will enter into DexComs standard form of indemnity agreement for its directors and executive officers, which was filed as Exhibit 10.43 to DexComs Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 28, 2017. The indemnification agreement will be effective as of the date of his appointment to the Board. Following the recommendation of the Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board, on March 9, 2017, the Board appointed Mr. Collins to serve as a member of the Audit Committee of the Board, effective immediately.
Consistent with DexComs compensation policy for non-employee directors, and subject to the approval of the Board of Directors at its next meeting, on June 1, 2017, Mr. Collins will be granted up to two annual retainer grants of restricted stock units. The first will be a grant of restricted stock units with a fair value of $69,041. This fair value amount is the prorated portion of the annual $300,000 retainer grant for non-employee directors for the period from the date of his appointment to the Board, March 9, 2017, to June 1, 2017, the next grant date for annual retainer grants to members of the Board. The second will be a grant of restricted stock units with a fair value of $300,000. This fair value amount will cover the period from June 1, 2017 through the date of the 2018 Annual Meeting of DexComs stockholders. This second grant will only be made if Mr. Collins is reelected to serve as a Class III director at the 2017 Annual Meeting of DexComs stockholders. Both grants will be issued under the DexCom 2015 Equity Incentive Plan, will vest twelve months after the date of grant, accelerate in full upon a change of control and will result in the issuance of a number of restricted stock units calculated by dividing the fair value amount of the applicable grant by the average of the closing price of DexComs common stock for the 15-day period immediately prior to the date of grant.
(e) On March 9, 2017, the Board approved a bonus plan for fiscal 2017 (the 2017 Plan) for DexComs management and select individual contributors, including its chief executive officer, chief financial officer and its other named executive officers pursuant to which members of DexComs management team are eligible for cash bonus awards if DexCom attains specified financial and performance targets. The target bonus for each of the Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (the CEO) is 125% of their respective base salaries; the target bonus for DexComs Executive Vice Presidents is 75% of their respective base salaries; the target bonus for DexComs Senior Vice Presidents is 50% of their respective base salaries; the target bonus for DexComs Vice Presidents is 40% of their respective base salaries, and the target bonus for the remainder of DexComs management employees and select contributors are various amounts up to 30% of their respective base salaries.
For DexComs eligible employees, the amount of any bonus awarded under the 2017 Plan will be predicated on achieving targeted annual revenue or new patient addition goals, targeted operating expense and income goals, and performance milestones. Generally speaking, 60% of any bonus paid under the 2017 Plan is based on achieving the annual revenue or new patient addition goals (the Revenue/Patient Component), 20% is based on achieving the targeted operating expense and income goals (the Operating Results Component) and 20% is based on achieving the performance milestones (the Performance Component).
Under the 2017 Plan, no portion of the Revenue/Patient Component shall be paid unless DexCom meets a specified minimum annual revenue or new patient addition target for fiscal 2017. Upon achievement of this minimum annual revenue or new patient addition target, each eligible participant will receive a bonus award of 100% of their targeted Revenue/Patient Component. If DexCom exceeds its fiscal 2017 annual revenue or new patient addition target, the eligible participant will receive bonuses at various stepped up amounts up to a maximum of 175% of their targeted Revenue/Patient Component.
Under the 2017 Plan, no portion of the Operating Results Component shall be paid unless DexCom meets a specified operating expense target for fiscal 2017. Upon achievement of this operating expense target, each eligible participant will receive a bonus award of 100% of their targeted Operating Results Component. If DexCom achieves certain operating income targets, the eligible participant will receive bonuses at various stepped up amounts up to a maximum of 175% of their targeted Operating Results Component.
Under the Performance Component, bonus amounts also will be paid to eligible participants for achieving specified corporate milestones. Eligible participants will receive a portion of their targeted Performance Component for achievement of corporate milestones by DexCom during fiscal 2017.
In addition, any amount paid out under the 2017 Plan may be increased by up to 25% if DexCom achieves various additional stretch performance milestones.
