Executive Compensation. As part of its annual compensation process on April 10, 2019, the Executive Compensation Committee (the Committee) of the Board of Directors of Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (the Company) determined the annual base salaries of certain of the Companys named executive officers for fiscal year 2020. The Committee increased Mr. Murphys base salary by 12.5% to $900,000, which will align his base salary with the 50th percentile of the peer group. The Committee determined that this adjustment was appropriate considering Mr. Murphys individual performance in the prior fiscal year and after a review of the relevant market data, which placed his prior salary at the 22nd percentile of the peer group. The annual base salary changes are effective as of April 1, 2019. The Committee has also approved in March, 2019 the annual incentive payments under the Companys Annual Incentive Plan for fiscal year 2019 for the named executive officers for the 2019 fiscal year. Based on the Companys performance against its financial objectives, a bonus payout of 68% of the target was approved as set forth in the table below (in 000s):
FY20 Equity Compensation. In addition to granting executive officers time-based restricted stock awards and awards based on the Companys relative total shareholder return, the Committee granted certain executives and employees Value Creation Awards that have been designed to provide them with a strong incentive to create a substantial increase in shareholder value. Vesting of these performance-based restricted stock units is dependent upon a significant increase in the Companys stock price. The performance condition will be satisfied once the Companys average stock price equals or exceeds $40.00 per share for 100 calendar days prior to the fourth anniversary of the date of grant (Performance Condition). The shares vest one year after the date the Performance Condition is satisfied. In the event of a change in control, the Performance Condition may be deemed partially satisfied depending on the value received in the transaction.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
