If the financial performance threshold levels were not met, there would not be any incentive payment. As a part of total compensation, additional restricted share grants can be allocated for selected few key employees during 2014-2016. Gross reward, before deduction for the applicable taxes and employment related expenses, is in range of 50-60% of annual base salary.
