Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers


On September 1, 2016, the Compensation Committee (the “Compensation Committee”) of the Board of Directors of Prism Technologies Group, Inc. (the “Company”) approved an Incentive Compensation Plan (“Plan”) for the Company’s executive officers, directors and employees.



The purpose of the Plan is to incent employees to generate operations-related cash flow for the Company as quickly as possible by pursuing strategic revenue opportunities and prudent expense reductions. The Plan in general is effective September 1, 2016; however, individual Participants may opt in at any time beginning after the Plan effective date. Unless extended by the Compensation Committee in its sole discretion, the Plan ends when the Net Cash Flow target (defined below) is attained and all participants are paid their respective accumulated incentive compensation.


Plan Structure

A payout under the Plan is contingent on the Company attaining cumulative Net Cash Flow (NCF) of at least $5 million beginning September 1, 2016. NCF is the cumulative difference between (i) cash received from revenue sources, and (ii) cash operating expenses. The amount of incentive compensation available to any Participant is equal to 1.5 times the amount of his cumulative compensation reduction measured between the date of participation through the payout date. Plan payouts will be made only when the NCF target is 100% achieved; there are no intermediate or partial payouts.


The Company’s four executive officers agreed to participate in the Plan, effective September 2, 2016, and their new cash compensation is shown in the following table:
