Bonus Criteria



Executive shall receive a guaranteed bonus of $125,000 annually.



Executive may earn an additional bonus of $100,000 annually, provided that Executive achieves at least one hundred (100%) percent of the net income budgeted for the applicable fiscal year in the original budget for Voxx Advanced Solutions LLC as approved by the Company’s Board of Directors.  In the event that Voxx Advanced Solutions LLC achieves net income of less than one hundred (100%) percent of the original budgeted net income amount for a fiscal year, Executive’s $100,000 additional bonus shall be proportionately reduced by the ratio of net income achieved versus net income budgeted.  For illustrative purposes only, if the budgeted net income for Voxx Advanced Solutions LLC for fiscal 2020 was $100,000 and it achieved net income for fiscal 2020 of $50,000, the Executive’s additional bonus would be $50,000 ($100,000 x $50,000/$100,000 = $50,000).



In the event of a sale of the Company’s ownership stake in Eyelock LLC, Executive shall receive 1% of the Company’s net gain from the sale, less accumulated losses.
