Named Executive Officer Annual Long-Term Incentive Awards
On August 6, 2020, the Compensation and Leadership Resources Committee (“Committee”) of the Board of Directors of Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (the “Company”) approved equity awards to each of the named executive officers (as set forth in the Company’s most recent proxy statement filed on March 26, 2020, “NEO”) having the following target award values (“Target Value”):
|Name and Title||Target Value|
|Devinder Kumar, Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer|
|Rick Bergman, Executive Vice President, Computing and Graphics Business Group|
|Darren Grasby, Senior Vice President and Chief Sales Officer|
|Mark D. Papermaster, Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President, Technology and Engineering|
On August 7, 2020, the Board of Directors of the Company approved an equity award to Dr. Lisa T. Su having the following Target Value:
|Name and Title||Target Value|
|Lisa T. Su, President and Chief Executive Officer||$13,845,000|
The Target Value of each equity award will be converted into a mix of (i) performance-based restricted stock units (“PRSUs”), (ii) time-based stock options (“Stock Options”) and (iii) time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”) that will be granted on August 9, 2020 (the “Grant Date”) under the terms of the Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. 2004 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended and restated. Each PRSU and RSU represents the right to receive one share of the Company’s common stock upon vesting and settlement of the PRSU or RSU (as applicable).
The target number of PRSUs will be determined by dividing 50% of the Target Value by the average closing price of the Company’s stock over the 30 trading-day average period ending on the Grant Date (but not less than $20.00) (the “Conversion Price”). The number of Stock Options will be determined by converting 25% of the Target Value using the Conversion Price and a valuation factor determined in accordance with the Company’s equity valuation practices. The number of RSUs will be determined by dividing 25% of Target Value by the Conversion Price.
Each NEO will earn between 0% and 200% of his/her target number of PRSUs depending on the return on the Company’s stock price relative to the return on the S&P 500 Index, in each case over the performance period that begins on August 9, 2020 and ends on August 9, 2023 (as applicable, the “Performance Period”). In addition, each NEO will earn a number of PRSUs equal to 0%, 25% or 50% of the number of PRSUs (if any) earned depending on the Company’s non-GAAP earnings per share (“EPS”) growth from its 2020 to 2022 fiscal years. In no event, however, will the combined number of PRSUs earned by a NEO exceed 250% of his/her target number of PRSUs. If the return on the Company’s stock price over the Performance Period is negative, then the total number of PRSUs earned by each NEO will be reduced by 50%. Vesting of any earned PRSUs is subject to the NEO’s continued provision of services to the Company through August 9, 2023. Earned and vested PRSUs will generally be settled on August 16, 2023.
The Stock Options will have an exercise price equal to 100% of the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the Grant Date and will have a term of seven years. Stock Options and RSUs vest 1/3 on each of August 9, 2021, August 9, 2022 and August 9, 2023.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Exchange Act, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
