Pay Ratio Disclosure
Under the SEC rules adopted pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act, we are required to disclose the ratio of the annual total compensation of our chief executive officer (CEO), Elizabeth Barrett, to the median of the annual total compensation of all of our employees other than Ms. Barrett (the CEO Pay Ratio).
For fiscal 2021, the median of the annual total compensation of all employees of the Company (other than the CEO) was $191,462 and the annual total compensation of the CEO, as reported in the Summary Compensation Table included in this Proxy Statement, was $4,212,666. Based on this information, the ratio of the annual total compensation of the CEO to the median of the annual total compensation of all employees was 22 to 1.
To identify our median employee, we used the following methodology:
To determine our total population of employees, we included all employees other than our CEO as of December 31, 2021 (whether employed on a full-time, part-time, seasonal, or temporary basis).
To identify our median employee from our employee population, we chose as our consistently applied compensation measure the aggregate amount of each employees base salary and cash bonuses paid during fiscal 2021 and the grant date fair value of equity awards granted in fiscal 2021 determined in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718.
In making this determination, we did not annualize the compensation of employees who were employed by us for less than the entire fiscal year and we did not make any cost-of-living adjustments.
We did not exclude any non-U.S. employees under the de minimis or other exceptions set forth in Item 402(u) of Regulation S-K.
Compensation paid in foreign currencies was converted to U.S. dollars based on the average exchange rate in effect during 2021.
Once the median employee was identified, we calculated the median employees total annual compensation in accordance with the requirements of the Summary Compensation Table.
This pay ratio is a reasonable estimate calculated in a manner consistent with the SECs rules and regulations, based on our records and the methodology described above. The SECs rules and regulations for identifying the median employee and calculating the pay ratio based on that employees annual total compensation allow companies to adopt a variety of methodologies and to use reasonable estimates and assumptions based on their own facts and circumstances.
As set forth in the Proxy Statement, you are being asked to approve, on a non-binding, advisory basis, the compensation of the Companys named executive officers. Except for the Updates set forth herein, there is no change to PROPOSAL 4ADVISORY VOTE ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION, included in the Proxy Statement.
Please note that any proxy card that we delivered has not changed and may still be used to vote your shares in connection with the annual meeting. If you have already submitted your vote, you do not need to take any further action. Information on how to vote your shares and how to change your vote or revoke your proxy is contained in the Proxy Statement. The Company urges shareholders to vote their shares prior to the annual meeting by using one of the methods described in the Proxy Statement.
