LUMOS NETWORKS CORP. FILES (8-K) Disclosing Change in Directors or Principal Officers
(Edgar Glimpses Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Item 5.02Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;
Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On February 21, 2014, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the
"Compensation Committee") of Lumos Networks Corp. (the "Company") took the
2013 Incentive Payments
After review of the Company's consolidated financial results for 2013 and taking
into consideration the Company's targets for 2013 with respect to revenues and
"Adjusted EBITDA" (a non-GAAP measure defined as net income attributable to the
Company before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, accretion
of asset retirement obligations, net income attributable to noncontrolling
interests, other income or expenses, equity-based compensation charges,
acquisition-related charges, amortization of actuarial losses on retirement
plans, employee separation charges, restructuring-related charges, gain or loss
on settlements and gain or loss on interest rate swap derivatives), and
individual performance considerations, approved incentive payments under the
2013 Team Incentive Plan (the "2013 Plan") for the following named executive
officers: Timothy G. Biltz, President and Chief Executive Officer, $0; Harold L.
Covert, Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer,
$85,500; Joseph E. McCourt, Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer,
$73,500; and Mary McDermott, Senior Vice President, Legal and Regulatory Affairs
and Secretary, $54,993. Mr. Biltz had recommended to the Compensation Committee
that in light of the Company's mixed 2013 financial and operating results, he
not receive an incentive payment and the Committee accepted his
recommendation. The incentive payment levels for the other executive officers
were reduced to a 50% payout from the 93% payout that would otherwise have been
paid based on the Company's achievement of the 2013 Plan's targets.
2014 Base Salary
After considering the Company's performance in 2013 as well as a competitive
market review of base salary, determined not to adjust base salary levels from
the prior year for any of the named executive officers.
2014 Incentive Plan
Approved the 2014 Team Incentive Plan (the "2014 Plan"). The 2014 Plan
establishes performance measures tied to revenues and Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal
2014 incentive payouts, as well as individual performance considerations, for
the Company's executive officers, including its named executive
officers. Payments to executive officers under the 2014 Plan would be made in
Company common stock and/or cash as determined by the Committee.
After considering a competitive market review of cash incentive payments as a
percentage of base salary, determined not to adjust the target incentive
opportunity as a percentage of salary for any of the named executive officers.
In light of the equity awards granted in 2013, the Compensation Committee did
not grant any equity awards to the named executive officers for 2014.
