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 14, 2014 meeting, the Management Development and Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of Honeywell International Inc. (“Honeywell” or the “Company”) reviewed and approved the 2014 corporate short-term financial objectives that will be used, together with other factors described below, to determine the 2014 annual incentive compensation that will be payable in the first quarter of 2015 to executives under Honeywell’s Incentive Compensation Plan for Executive Employees (“Incentive Compensation Plan”). The amount of any payments under the Incentive Compensation Plan are capped based on a percentage of the Company’s consolidated earnings, as fully described in the Company’s shareowner-approved 2011 Incentive Compensation Plan for Executive Employees. The selected financial metrics are earnings per share (“EPS”), free cash flow (“FCF”) and working capital turns (“WCT”). EPS is stated as a target range determined on a proforma basis which excludes the impact of any pension mark-to-market adjustment. FCF is defined as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures prior to any NARCO Trust establishment payments, cash pension contributions and cash taxes related to the sale of available for sale investments. 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.
2014 annual incentive awards will be paid from a pool that will be funded based in part upon the achievement of the following corporate financial objectives:
|EPS||$5.35 - $5.55|
In setting bonus pools and/or determining actual awards at the end of 2014, the Committee will also consider other key performance measures and relevant factors necessary to ensure that the results against the three financial goals are viewed in context and to recognize individual performance. These supplemental criteria include (i) other financial metrics (such as year-over-year variance in segment profit, segment margin expansion, and revenue), quality of earnings, relative performance of the Company’s operating segments or business units, relevant industry and economic conditions, performance compared to a peer group of companies, and Incentive Compensation Plan payout levels relative to award levels and performance in prior years, (ii) achievement of individual management objectives aligned with the Honeywell Initiatives and (iii) demonstrated leadership behaviors.
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.
