Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
(e) Incentive Compensation Plan
At its February 15, 2008 meeting, the Management Development and Compensation Committee (the Committee) of Honeywells Board of Directors reviewed and approved the 2008 financial objectives and their relative weightings that will be used to determine the 2008 annual incentive compensation that will be payable to executives under Honeywells Incentive Compensation Plan for Executive Employees (Incentive Compensation Plan). The selected metrics -- earnings per share (EPS), free cash flow (cash flow from operations minus capital expenditures; FCF), and working capital turns (WCT) will be weighted 50%, 25%, and 25%, respectively. WCT is defined as sales divided by working capital (in each case, excluding the impact of current year acquisitions), calculated based on a 13-month rolling average. Working capital is defined as trade accounts receivable plus inventory less accounts payable and customer advances.
2008 annual incentive awards will be paid from a pool that will be funded based upon achievement of the following corporate financial objectives:
Weighted Payout at Target
The EPS component of the annual incentive bonus pool is subject to upward or downward adjustment (up to a maximum of 25% in either direction) based on Honeywells relative EPS growth performance versus a pre-established group of 33 peer companies reflecting the Aerospace & Defense, Conglomerates, Auto Parts & Equipment, Specialty Chemicals, Diversified Chemical and Industrial Machinery subgroups of the Standard & Poors 500 Index. For each percentile that Honeywells EPS growth exceeds or is below the median EPS growth of its peers, the EPS component of the Companys annual incentive bonus pool is increased or decreased, as appropriate, by approximately one percent. Bonus pools for each of the Companys four strategic business groups (SBGs) will be determined based on achievement of corresponding SBG financial objectives (substituting SBG net income for EPS), weighted equally.
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.
