The actual number of PSUs that are earned, if any, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the applicable award agreement may differ from the Target Award number and are subject to increase or decrease based on the Company’s actual performance against the performance goals set forth below and may range from 0% to 200% of the target award, rounded to the nearest whole Share:
