We are committed to strong corporate governance practices designed to maintain high standards of oversight, integrity and ethics while promoting long-term shareholder value.
The Board is responsible for the oversight of management on behalf of our shareholders and the Board accomplishes this function acting directly and through Board committees. The Board maintains four standing committees: Audit and Risk; Human Resources and Compensation; Corporate Governance and Nominating and Special Programs. The Board also maintains an Executive committee which meets on an ad hoc basis. This governance structure allows the Board to provide focused advice, insight and oversight in the interests of the Company and our shareholders. The Board and its committees discharge their duties at Board and committee meetings, through telephone contact and other communications with management and others regarding matters of concern and interest to the Company.
Primary Governance Documents
Our governance structure and processes are based on our key governance documents, which include the following documents which can either be found on our website at investor.caci.com or are available upon written request to CACI International Inc, 12021 Sunset Hills Road, Reston, Virginia 20190, Attention: Investor Relations:
• Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation
• Board Committee Charters
• Standards of Ethics and Business Conduct
• Corporate Governance Guidelines
• Directors’ Code of Business Ethics and Conduct
The Board reevaluates our policies and practices on an ongoing basis and all of our directors, executive officers and other employees are required to review their applicable code of conduct and certify compliance annually to ensure high standards of business conduct that facilitate the Board’s execution of its responsibilities. Additional information is provided below regarding key corporate governance and ethics policies and practices that we believe enable us to manage our business in accordance with the highest standards of business ethics and in the best interest of our shareholders.
We intend to disclose any waiver of compliance with any provision of our code of conduct covered by Item 406(b) of Regulation S-K that is granted to any principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer or controller, and any amendments to such code of conduct, in the “Investors” section of our website www.caci.com within four business days following the date of such waiver or amendment.
The Board is responsible for determining the optimal leadership structure to provide independent oversight of senior management and evaluates the Board’s leadership structure on an annual basis. In evaluating its leadership structure, the Board considers our current operating and governance environment, governance best practices and feedback from our shareholders on how the Board can provide effective oversight of senior management on behalf of our shareholders. Based on these considerations, the Board has determined that separate positions for Chairman and CEO provides an efficient and effective leadership model, fostering clear accountability, differing perspectives and effective decision making as the Chairman focuses on the Board activities while the CEO manages the day-to-day business. From time to time, the Board may also appoint a Vice Chairman in order to have a director empowered to act with the authority of the Chairman in the event the Chairman is unavailable. The chart below summarizes the roles and responsibilities of the Chairman:

As provided in their charters, each committee is authorized to engage or consult from time to time, as appropriate, at our expense, with outside independent legal counsel or other experts or advisors it deems necessary, appropriate or advisable to discharge its duties. The charters for the Audit and Risk, Human Resources and Compensation, Corporate Governance and Nominating and Executive committees are available on our website at investor.caci.com or a print copy of all the standing committee charters is available upon shareholder request. Below is a summary of the current primary responsibilities of each committee. In light of the revised committee structure, the Board is reviewing the charters for the committees listed below and drafting a charter for the Special Programs Committee to ensure the Board continues to fulfill its oversight responsibilities. The full responsibilities for each committee will be delineated in the committee charters available on our website.
Audit and Risk
The Audit and Risk Committee (the “Audit Committee”) assists the Board in fulfilling its oversight of (i) the integrity of the Company’s financial statements; (ii) the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting; (iii) the Company’s compliance with applicable legal and regulatory requirements; (iv) the independence and qualifications of the Company’s independent auditor; and (v) the performance of the Company’s internal and independent auditors. The Audit Committee is comprised of only independent directors and fulfills its responsibilities by:
• Appointing, evaluating and overseeing the independent auditor;
• Reviewing and pre-approving audit and non-audit services and related fees for the independent auditor;
• Discussing the Company’s audited financial statements and quarterly financial statements with management and the independent auditor;
• Discussing the process for assessing the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting and reviewing issues as to the adequacy and effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting;
• Reviewing the annual internal audit plan and any significant internal audit findings;
• Reviewing and approving all related party transactions;
• Reviewing risks related to the Company’s cybersecurity posture; and
• Reviewing legal and regulatory matters that may have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

• Approving grants of equity compensation to all eligible individuals in the Company’s service;

• Recommending to the Board the general criteria and qualifications for membership on the Board;
• Identifying and selecting individuals to be nominated for election to the Board;
• Recommending the number of directors to be elected each year (within the bounds established by the Company’s By-laws);

• Reviewing policies and practices of the Company and monitoring compliance in areas of corporate governance.
The Special Programs Committee assists the Board in overseeing the Company’s business activities that have been classified for reasons of national security by an agency of the United States Government (“Classified Programs”). The Special Programs Committee is comprised of only independent directors and fulfills its responsibilities by:
• Monitoring the Company’s Classified Programs and prospective acquisitions with classified programs for strategic, financial, operational, reputational, and other risks; and
• Monitoring Company’s policies, procedures, internal controls, compliance structures, and other risk management activities with respect to Classified Programs and their implementation.
The Executive Committee assists the Board in providing the necessary input and authorization in between full Board meetings, and for identifying those items which merit consideration or action by the entire Board.
Board and Committee Independence
In accordance with our Corporate Governance Guidelines, a majority of our Board must be independent as defined by the NYSE listing rules and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). On July 27, 2023 and August 15, 2023, the Board affirmatively determined that 10 of its 11 director nominees (90.9%) are independent. In making the determination, the Board considered the relationships described below in “Certain Relationships and Related Transactions.” The Audit Committee, Compensation Committee and Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee are comprised entirely of independent directors.
Annual Board Evaluations
The Board and each of its committees perform annual evaluations of their performance. The evaluation process is managed by the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee and specifically focuses on areas for improvement. In order to ensure independence during the evaluation process, the evaluation of the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee is conducted by the Executive Committee.
Our Board has an active role, as a whole and at the committee level, in overseeing the management of our risks. The Board regularly reviews information regarding the results of operations and any related trends and other factors contributing to or affecting our results, long-term strategy, financial reporting systems and processes, as well as the risks associated with these aspects of the Company’s business. The Board has also approved Standards of Ethics and Business Conduct that establish standards of conduct for employees that are designed to mitigate risks associated with compliance, foster ethical conduct by our employees and protect company assets. We require all employees to receive annual training related to our Standards of Ethics and Business Conduct and related policies in order to ensure that employees are familiar with those standards of conduct and to mitigate the risks associated with employees’ failure to meet those standards.
The Board’s committees are involved in the assessment of risks relevant to their area of responsibility and the implementation of actions designed to address or mitigate those risks. The types of risks that are considered by the committees include:
Audit and Risk:
Risks related to our tax, accounting, financial reporting systems and processes, and legal and regulatory compliance.
Human Resources and Compensation:
Risks related to our compensation and benefit programs.
Corporate Governance and Nominating:
Risks related to our corporate governance and management.
Risks related to our Classified Programs.
The identification and development of senior leadership is a key responsibility of the Board, and the Board is actively engaged in succession planning. Accordingly, the Board engages in discussions concerning Chief Executive Officer succession and the Chief Executive Officer briefs the Board concerning senior management succession. Chief Executive Officer succession is also discussed by the Board in an executive session outside the presence of any management directors. Management also updates the Board on key talent indicators such as recruiting and retention for the overall employee population throughout the year.
Shareholder and Interested Party Communications with Directors

Financial Performance Summary
Fiscal Year 2023 Performance
Below are charts outlining our performance over the relevant periods for the performance metrics used by the Compensation Committee in determining our NEOs’ compensation. The performance depicted in the charts had a substantial impact on our NEOs’ earned compensation over the course of this period. For fiscal year 2023, this resulted in an average achievement of 119% of the targeted annual incentive plan value, and the three-year growth of the Company’s stock price through August 15, 2023 resulted in achievement of 116% of the performance-based equity awards granted to the NEOs in fiscal year 2021. For fiscal year 2023, EBITDA represents GAAP net income plus net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense (including depreciation within direct costs).
2022 Say on Pay Vote
As the Compensation Committee made its fiscal year 2023 compensation decisions, it considered that 96% of the votes cast on the Company’s fiscal year 2022 executive compensation program (the “Say on Pay” proposal) were voted in favor of the “Say on Pay” proposal at the Company’s 2022 Annual Meeting. This continued the strong support as shown in 2021’s and 2020’s 97% and 97% approval rates, respectively. The Company also actively engages with our shareholders to understand our shareholders’ views towards the program and reviews comments from shareholder advisory services.
Pay for Performance Philosophy
The Compensation Committee believes our executive compensation program should incent and reward behaviors that build a foundation for our long-term performance and success while also supporting the achievement of annual objectives. Our performance assessment framework and executive compensation program are designed to reward such performance by linking our executives’ compensation to the achievement of both long- and short-term goals. For example, the annual incentives paid to each of our NEOs vary with performance, including our annual financial results.
Executive Compensation Program Design
The substantial majority of our NEOs’ compensation is directly tied to our performance with short-term and long-term incentives comprising an average of approximately 79% of our NEOs’ target total direct compensation (“TDC”). The following is a list of the principal components of our executive compensation program in fiscal year 2023:
|Fixed||Base Salary||Annual fixed portion of NEOs’ TDC designed to attract and retain experienced executives, comprising only approximately an average of 21% of our executives’ target TDC in fiscal year 2023.|
|At Risk||Short-Term Incentives||Cash bonus plan that rewards NEOs for achieving annual performance objectives based on Revenue and EBITDA, calculated as described below.|
Performance Restricted Stock Units (“PRSUs”) earned based on achievement of three-year EBITDA growth objectives.
Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs”) earned over three years based on continued commitment to CACI.
|Compensation Committee||The Compensation Committee uses a comprehensive process to assess performance on an ongoing basis, which includes frequent dialogue with management about financial performance relative to our goals and competitors, and assessment of corporate and individual executive accomplishments.|
|Independent Consultant||The Compensation Committee also asks its independent compensation consultant to assess our pay-for-performance alignment, which includes an analysis of our NEOs’ realizable pay relative to our peer group and an analysis of operational and shareholder returns relative to our peer group.|
Historical Pay for Performance Results
Our pay for performance philosophy is reflected in the compensation that has been earned by our NEOs over the past three years. The chart below summarizes our corporate performance against the Compensation Committee performance metrics and the impact our performance had on our NEOs’ compensation.
|Year||Bonus Plan Performance||Average Annual Bonus Payout|

The following is a summary of the compensation practices that we do and do not employ to advance our shareholders’ long-term interests.

✘ No Repricings
✓ Rigorous Stock Ownership Guidelines
✘ No Tax Gross-ups
✓ Clawback Policy
✘ No Automatic Single Trigger
Equity Vesting on Change of Control
Compensation Governance and Process
The Compensation Committee, composed solely of independent directors, is responsible for our executive officer compensation decisions. The Compensation Committee works very closely with Mercer, as its independent compensation consultant, and management to examine pay and performance matters during the year. The Compensation Committee has both a strategic and administrative role in managing the compensation structure of the Company, with an emphasis on
compensation of top management. Strategically, the Compensation Committee considers how the achievement of the overall goals and objectives of the Company can be aided through adoption of an appropriate compensation philosophy and effective program elements. Administratively, the Compensation Committee reviews compensation paid, salary progressions, incentive compensation allocations, benefits and perquisites provided to all employees, and equity awards granted under all shareholder-approved plans.
The Compensation Committee acted in accordance with the following process in determining our NEOs compensation for fiscal year 2023.
Fourth Quarter FY2022
• Developed the design of the fiscal year 2023 compensation program.
• Approved the performance metrics and goals for the fiscal year 2023 cash incentive plan.
• Set target total direct compensation for the NEOs for fiscal year 2023.
First Quarter FY2023
• Reviewed and approved the metrics and goals for the PRSUs.
Fiscal Year 2023
• Certified PRSU performance for completed measurement periods.
• Reviewed the Company’s performance and assessed progress toward objectives.
• Assessed progress toward NEO objectives.
• Discussed potential program changes considering feedback from shareholders, regulatory guidance, and external trends.
First Quarter FY2024
• Evaluate and discuss NEO performance
• Determine payouts for the NEOs based on achievement of the performance metrics for the annual incentive plan and PRSUs.
The Compensation Committee determined fiscal year 2023 TDC targets for the CEO and each of the other NEOs employed at the time based on the following process:
• Leadership Evaluation: The Compensation Committee used a performance assessment framework to make CEO compensation decisions. For the other NEOs, the Compensation Committee, with input from the CEO, reviewed (1) performance against the objectives set in fiscal year 2022, and (2) each NEO’s Leadership Assessment based on individual performance with regard to key leadership attributes.
• Risk-Balancing and Performance: In evaluating the performance of the NEOs, the Compensation Committee sought to understand what was accomplished relative to established objectives, how it was accomplished, the quality of financial results and the Company’s strategic positioning for future competitive advantage.
• Market Practices: The Compensation Committee evaluated each NEO’s relative compensation and changes in responsibilities and considered current pay practices for comparable positions at peer companies.
• Independent Consultant Input: The Compensation Committee received input from its independent compensation consultant.
• Other Factors: For the NEOs other than the CEO, the Compensation Committee also considered the CEO’s recommendations, succession planning and retention. Finally, before making pay decisions, the Compensation Committee reviewed the pay mix to ensure that it was competitively positioned and performance-based.
During the course of the fiscal year, the Compensation Committee reviews corporate performance each quarter and assesses progress for each goal in the cash incentive program and active long-term incentive programs from current and prior fiscal years. The Committee uses a performance assessment framework to make CEO compensation decisions. For the other NEOs, the Committee, with input from the CEO, reviews (1) business unit/staff group performance against the objectives set for the fiscal year, and (2) each NEO’s Leadership Assessment based on individual performance with regard to key leadership attributes. The Committee evaluates each NEO’s relative compensation and changes in responsibilities and considers current pay practices for comparable positions at peer companies. The Committee also considers the CEO’s recommendations, succession planning, retention, and advice of its independent compensation consultant. Finally, before making pay decisions, the Committee reviews the pay mix to ensure that it is competitively positioned and performance-based. The Committee also discusses other information relevant to executive compensation, such as trends, regulatory updates, shareholder feedback and individual performance.
Independent Compensation Consultant
With respect to fiscal year 2023, Mercer attended Compensation Committee meetings, met with the Compensation Committee in executive sessions, reviewed and provided recommendations on the components of the Company’s executive compensation program and provided compensation advice independent of the Company’s management. The compensation consultant reports directly to the Committee and performs no work for management other than providing advice on executive compensation pursuant to its engagement by the Committee. The Compensation Committee assessed the independence of Mercer pursuant to SEC rules and concluded that their work for the Compensation Committee did not raise any conflicts of interest.
Assessing Competitive Practice
Mercer assists the Committee by reviewing comparative market data on compensation practices and programs within the Company’s peer group.
During fiscal year 2023, Mercer was responsible for providing information on new laws and regulations, general industry compensation practices, recommendations for director compensation and compensation for management positions under the Committee’s purview, and for performing independent assessments of management recommendations brought before the Committee.
For fiscal year 2023, peer comparisons were performed against 15 publicly-traded companies which were selected based on similarities to CACI in size and/or industry as well as operational similarities. The selected companies were as follows:
|Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corporation||Bread Financial Holdings, Inc.||Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc.||Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation|
|Fidelity National Information Services, Inc.||Fiserv, Inc.||Jacobs Solutions, Inc.||KBR, Inc.|
|L3Harris Corporation||Leidos Holdings, Inc.||MAXIMUS, Inc.||Parsons Corporation|
|Science Applications International Corporation||Tetra Tech, Inc.||Unisys Corporation|
The companies used for peer comparisons are reviewed annually and adjusted as necessary due to changes at the selected company (e.g., acquisitions, bankruptcies, etc.) or changes in the comparability of the selected company to CACI.
General industry market information for NEO and other senior executive compensation was also provided for the Compensation Committee by Willis Towers Watson, which did not provide advice or analysis regarding the data provided.
Determining Executive Compensation
Executive Compensation Objectives
Our NEO compensation programs are designed to attract, retain and reward the management talent that we need to maintain and strengthen our position in the industry and to achieve our business objectives.
OUR COMPENSATION PRINCIPLES
Our compensation programs for NEOs are guided by three basic principles:
Link compensation to performance. We believe that compensation levels should reflect performance - both the performance of CACI and the performance of the recipient.
Maintain competitive compensation levels. We strive to offer programs and levels of compensation that are competitive with those offered by the Company’s peer group to attract, retain and reward our NEOs. The Committee evaluates TDC for each Executive Officer relative to the median of the Company’s peer group.
Align management’s interests with those of shareholders. We seek to implement programs that will align management’s interests with those of shareholders and increase long-term shareholder value by granting long-term equity incentive awards each year.
Principal Elements of Compensation
Average Percentage of FY23 TDC(1)
|Fixed||Base Salary|| |
• To provide a stable, reliable monthly income
• Set at levels that should generally comprise a low percentage of total target compensation
|Benefit Plans|| |
• To provide opportunity for deferring income taxes on a portion of annual income
|At Risk||Annual Incentive Compensation|| |
• To reward the achievement of annual financial goals
• Links compensation to short-term performance since award amounts are determined for the fiscal year based on actual results
• Time horizon: 1 year
|Long-Term Equity Incentives|| |
• Aligns executive interests with those of shareholders as potential value of awards increases or decreases with earnings (PRSUs)
• Retains executive officers through multi-year vesting (PRSUs and RSUs)
• Time horizon: 3 years (PRSUs and RSUs)
(1) Percentages are based on the target amounts for the individual components described in the “Fiscal year 2023 Base Salaries,” “Fiscal year 2023 Annual Incentives,” and “Fiscal year 2023 Long-Term Incentives” sections below.
Fiscal Year 2023 Executive Compensation Strategy
In fiscal year 2022, the Compensation Committee conducted a thorough review of the Company’s executive compensation philosophy and strategy. The key objectives of the Compensation Committee’s review were to:
• Drive attraction and retention of top talent in a more intense competitive landscape in our industry;
• Increase focus on our growth and position in the technology sector with an expectation of margin expansion;
• Respond to shareholder feedback regarding the structure of our long-term incentive program;
• Forge a stronger linkage between executive pay programs and our long-term strategic objectives; and
• Align management on a consistent market competitive framework for executive compensation.
Fiscal Year 2023 Annual Bonus Program
For fiscal year 2023, the Compensation Committee determined that all cash incentives for executives will be based on annual performance, establishing performance targets and payout ranges for each metric based on the current business environment, review of the competitive market, historical performance against targets and the Company’s desire for growth.
The Compensation Committee also determined that total bonus payouts for cash incentives will be subject to an upward or downward discretionary adjustment by the Compensation Committee based on its evaluation of each executive’s attainment of financial and non-financial performance objectives. All cash incentives for executive officers will be capped at 250% of their target cash incentive.
Fiscal Year 2023 Long-Term Incentives
The Committee granted fiscal year 2023 long-term incentive awards to executive officers in October 2022. To align executive incentives with long-term shareholder value creation and the Company’s strategic growth objectives, the Committee granted two types of long-term incentives to executive officers in fiscal year 2023:
• Restricted Stock Units which reinforce attraction, retention and long-term shareholder value creation; and
• Performance Restricted Stock Units which reinforce attraction, retention, long-term shareholder value creation and specifically focus on achieving strategic objectives. The vesting of the Performance Restricted Stock Units is based on the degree of attainment of three-year earnings growth objectives.
Fiscal Year 2023 Base Salaries
In late fiscal year 2022, the Compensation Committee reviewed and approved our NEOs’ base salaries for fiscal year 2023, taking into consideration the median of base salaries for comparable executives among our peer group, individual performance in fiscal year 2022 and the Company’s overall annual fiscal year 2023 merit increase guidance applicable to all employees. The adjustments approved by the Compensation Committee became effective on August 1, 2022 for all NEOs.
|John S. Mengucci||1,000,000||1,050,000||5.0%|
Jeffrey D. MacLauchlan(1)
|J. William Koegel, Jr.||531,000||541,584||2.0%|
(1) Mr. MacLauchlan was appointed Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer effective November 1, 2022.
Salary adjustments reflected the Compensation Committee’s strategy to provide competitive increases of base salary consistent with overall movement of executive base salaries in our peer group.
Fiscal Year 2023 Annual Incentives
Target Annual Incentives
Our cash incentive program is designed to motivate our executive officers to achieve pre-established annual performance objectives. In establishing target cash incentives for fiscal year 2023, the Compensation Committee reviewed our NEOs’ target total cash compensation, relative to the median of our peers and made certain adjustments to more closely align our NEOs’ total target cash compensation to the Company’s peer group. The table below shows the fiscal year 2023 NEO target cash incentive levels that were approved by the Compensation Committee in late fiscal year 2022:
Target Annual Incentive
|FY2023 Target Annual Incentive ($)||FY2023 Percentage of Base Salary||Percentage Change|
|John S. Mengucci||1,500,000||1,575,000||150%||5.0%|
Jeffrey D. MacLauchlan(1)
|J. William Koegel, Jr.||478,000||487,426||90%||2.0%|
(1) Mr. MacLauchlan was appointed Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer effective November 1, 2022. FY23 Target Annual Incentive is prorated to reflect prior role as SVP, Finance.
The target cash incentive change for Mr. Mengucci and other NEOs reflected the Compensation Committee’s strategy to provide competitive increases of cash incentives consistent with overall movement of executive cash incentives in our peer group, and to more closely align target incentive levels within the company.
The fiscal year 2023 cash incentive plan was based on full year performance for the Named Executive Officers. At the beginning of fiscal year 2023, the Compensation Committee established the performance metrics applicable to the annual cash incentive program. The performance metrics were selected to incent the Company’s growth and support the interests of the Company’s shareholders and were applied to each executive based on their responsibilities:
|Indicator of performance that is controlled by the Company and used as the primary incentive metric to ensure our executives’ focus on overall profitability.|
|CACI Revenue||Measure of the Company’s growth which requires the maintenance and expansion of current business and the capture of new business. To incent organic growth, the Committee evaluates whether to include acquired revenue in the measurement of this metric after the completion of each acquisition.|
In addition, the Compensation Committee approved metrics for the Company’s business sectors, which were applicable to Ms. Gray and Mr. Probert, among others:
|Sector EBITDA||Primary indicator of the performance of the sector and is used as the primary incentive metric to ensure our sector executives’ focus on overall profitability.|
|Sector Revenue||Primary measure of the sector’s growth, which requires the maintenance and expansion of current business and the capture of new business.|
The following is a summary of the performance metrics applicable to each NEO for the annual and quarterly components of the annual incentive program.
|Mr. Mengucci, Mr. MacLauchlan and Mr. Koegel||CACI EBITDA||50%|
|Ms. Gray and Mr. Probert||CACI EBITDA||20%|
After determining the appropriate performance metrics and weights applicable to the cash incentive program, the Compensation Committee established the target performance levels for the Company performance metric at the beginning of the fiscal year. The performance targets for each metric were established based on the Company’s five-year strategic plan, then current business environment, review of the competitive market, historical performance against targets and the Company’s desire for growth. The performance metrics, targets and results used to evaluate fiscal year 2023 performance included all acquisitions which occurred in fiscal year 2022. There were no significant acquisitions in fiscal year 2023. The President and Chief Executive Officer was responsible for establishing performance metrics for non-Executive Officers which flow from the Company metrics established by the Committee.
Once performance targets were established for each Company performance metric, the Compensation Committee determined appropriate lower, or “Cut,” threshold levels for each metric and upper, or “Stretch,” threshold levels. For performance below Cut levels, no bonus was awarded. For performance between Cut and Target levels, and between
Target and Stretch levels, bonus payouts were prorated on a straight-line basis. No additional incentives are awarded for performance above Stretch levels. Total payment for the cash incentive program is capped at 250% of the target payout for each NEO.
The ranges between Cut, Target and Stretch thresholds were based upon multiple factors assessed by the Compensation Committee, including historical ranges and historical performance against Cut, Target and Stretch thresholds. For fiscal year 2023, the Committee set the Cut thresholds at 90% of Target and Stretch thresholds at 110% of Target.
In addition, the Committee established an Individual Modifier, where bonus can be adjusted up or down 25% based on assessment of financial and/or non-financial performance (e.g., ESG, strategic milestones, employee engagement, or other factors which aren’t immediately reflected in financial results).

Fiscal Year 2023 Long-Term Incentives
The Compensation Committee used market data provided by its compensation consultant to set the target value of equity for the NEOs. Based on this review, the Compensation Committee made certain adjustments to align our NEOs with the peer group.
|Name||2022 Target Equity Value|
John S. Mengucci
|Jeffrey D. MacLauchlan||—||2,000,000||—|
J. William Koegel, Jr.
All NEOs received their fiscal year 2023 target equity value 50% in the form of RSUs and 50% in the form of PRSUs. The RSUs vest ratably over three years. The PRSUs vest at the end of three years based on the attainment of a three-year target cumulative EBITDA growth objective. No shares will vest for performance below the threshold performance level (75% of the three-year target cumulative EBITDA). For performance between Cut and Target levels, and between Target and Stretch levels (125% of the three-year target cumulative EBITDA), the number of shares which shall vest will be prorated on a straight-line basis up to 200% of the target PRSUs.
Mr. Mutryn Fiscal Year 2023 Compensation
Mr. Mutryn served as the Company’s Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer until his resignation on November 1, 2022. In establishing compensation for Mr. Mutryn, the Compensation Committee considered the median total compensation for comparable executives among our peer group. For fiscal year 2023, the Compensation Committee established Mr. Mutryn’s base salary at $661,550, a 1% increase from fiscal year 2022. His target cash incentive for fiscal year 2023 was established at $661,550, a 1% increase from fiscal year 2022. His target equity incentive for fiscal year 2023 was $1,500,000, no increase from fiscal year 2022. No equity incentives were granted to Mr. Mutryn in fiscal year 2023. Mr. Mutryn earned total cash incentives of $414,112 based on CACI Revenue and CACI EBITDA performance described under Fiscal Year 2023 Annual Incentives. The Committee considered Mr. Mutryn's service and contributions to the Company, and provided an additional payment upon his retirement. Such amount is included in the Summary Compensation Table. All outstanding RSUs and PRSUs granted to Mr. Mutryn vested in accordance with the Company’s policies.
Other Compensation Policies and Practices
Benefits and Executive Perquisites
All NEOs are entitled to receive a Company-provided automobile or an allowance to obtain an automobile. All automobile benefits are fully taxable as ordinary income; no tax gross-up is provided.
All NEOs are also eligible for annual financial planning services. The value of these services is also fully taxable as ordinary income; no tax gross-up is provided.
In addition, we provide a $25,000 discretionary benefit allowance per calendar year to the President and Chief Executive Officer. This allowance can be used for business or personal expenses. All personal benefit received from this allowance is fully taxable as ordinary income; no tax gross-up is provided.
Executives are also permitted to participate in the Company’s other employee benefit plans on substantially the same terms as other employees. For example, the Company makes matching contributions to our 401(k) plan based on employee contributions, and executives receive the same benefit.
After conclusion of an independent third-party security study, the Board determined that it was appropriate to provide Mr. Mengucci with a personal security driver and vehicle for business travel and certain non-business travel. We do not consider the provision of this transportation to be compensation since the need for security arises from the nature of Mr. Mengucci’s employment and the provision of such security is provided to mitigate risks to our business. Given the nature of our business, we believe security is necessary and generally provided to other executives within our industry.We report the aggregate incremental costs of these security arrangements as perquisites under the “All Other Compensation” column of the Summary Compensation Table in accordance with SEC requirements and report them as taxable compensation to Mr. Mengucci if they are not excludable from income as working condition fringe benefits under Section 132 of the Internal Revenue Code. We regularly review the nature of security threats and associated vulnerabilities with law enforcement and security specialists and will continue to adapt our security program as appropriate.
All amounts related to perquisites for NEOs are disclosed in column (i) of the Summary Compensation Table, along with details on their valuations.
Severance and Change in Control Benefits
The Company currently maintains severance agreements with Messrs. Mengucci, MacLauchlan, and Koegel. Ms. Gray and Mr. Probert fell under the Company’s general policy for executives during fiscal year 2023, which provided for six months’ salary upon involuntary separation without cause. The purpose of the agreements is to provide those executives with a degree of security and to mitigate concerns that they might have regarding their continued employment prior to or following a change in control, thereby allowing the executive to focus their undivided attention to serving the interests of the Company and our shareholders. The Company believes that appropriate severance arrangements are necessary to attract and retain these key executives and are an important part of a competitive overall compensation program for the NEOs.
In the event of a change in control, severance benefits in the agreements are generally payable only upon a “double trigger,” meaning that severance benefits are triggered when an eligible executive is involuntarily terminated without cause by the Company or resigns for “good reason” within one year following a change in control. This “double trigger” provision was implemented to be consistent with good market practices. We believe this program encourages retention in the face of an actual or potential change in control and aligns executive and shareholder interests. Furthermore, the program allows top executives to review corporate transactions that are in the best interests of our shareholders without concern over whether the transactions may adversely impact the executive’s employment.
All equity awards granted since 2010 have provided for “double trigger” vesting acceleration in the event of a change in control, under which vesting accelerates only upon a change in control and involuntary termination without cause or resignation for good reason within one year after the change of control.
For equity awards granted prior to fiscal year 2022, executives who retire at age 62 or older vest in a prorated portion of the grants based upon their number of months of service after the grant date divided by the full vesting timeframe; the numbers of shares received are still subject to the results of the performance conditions. For equity awards granted in fiscal year 2022 and thereafter, executives who retire no earlier than one year after the grant date, on or after the date on which they have attained age 55 or older, and the sum of their age and consecutive years of service with the Company totals 65 or more, shall continue to vest as if they had remained actively employed.
Calculations for various termination scenarios are included in the “Potential Payments on Termination or Change in Control” section of this proxy statement.
The Company offers a non-qualified deferred compensation plan to encourage employees to save for their retirement. Eligible employees, which include all NEOs, may elect to contribute up to 50% of their U.S. base salary and 100% of their U.S. bonuses and commissions to this plan on a pre-tax basis. The Company contributes 5% of all income over the compensation limit in section 401(a)(17) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “IRC”) to participants, subject to plan vesting conditions, and may make a supplemental discretionary contribution to a participant’s account in any amount it elects. No discretionary contributions were made in fiscal year 2023.
The Company entered into a supplemental executive retirement plan (“SERP”) with Mr. Mengucci that provides certain benefits to offset the forfeiture of potential benefits from his previous employment. Mr. Mengucci is the only active employee with a SERP. The SERP provides for annual, lifetime payments of $270,000 upon the voluntary or involuntary termination of Mr. Mengucci’s employment on or after December 1, 2022, unless such termination is for cause (as defined in Mr. Mengucci’s employment agreement) which would result in the forfeiture of all benefits under the SERP. Upon his death, a surviving spouse will receive annual, lifetime payments of $135,000. If Mr. Mengucci voluntarily terminates his employment other than for good reason prior to December 1, 2022, Mr. Mengucci will receive a pro rata portion of the payment amount based on his period of executive service beginning June 3, 2019. In the event of a Change of Control, Mr. Mengucci and a spouse will receive the full benefits payable under the SERP unless Mr. Mengucci is terminated for cause or voluntarily terminates his employment other than for good reason. The Company provides no other executive a SERP and does not currently anticipate doing so in the future.
Management Stock Purchase Plan
The Company offers a Management Stock Purchase Plan (“MSPP”) to promote the long-term growth and profitability of the Company by providing executives with incentives to improve shareholder value and to contribute to the growth and financial success of the Company. The MSPP also helps executives to meet their mandated stock ownership requirements. The Board believes that the MSPP serves these goals, encouraging executives to convert a higher percentage of their cash compensation into Company equity.
The MSPP provides for equity ownership in the Company by senior officers by allowing the voluntary deferral of up to 100% of their annual incentive plan compensation into RSUs. All deferred shares are bought at a discount of up to 15%, as determined annually by the Compensation Committee, of fair market value. The Company may grant matching awards in an amount not to exceed 25% of the participant’s deferrals and subject to such vesting or other restrictions or conditions as the Compensation Committee determines.
The amount of the discount to fair market value and matching grant is determined by the Compensation Committee no later than December 31st of the fiscal year in which the bonus is earned. During fiscal year 2023, the Compensation Committee approved a 15% discount with no matching.
There were no MSPP purchases for NEOs in fiscal year 2023.
Stock Ownership Requirements
The Compensation Committee maintains executive stock ownership requirements for senior officers to focus those executives on the long-term growth in value of the Company and to ensure they act as owners of the Company. The stock ownership requirements are based on a multiple of the executive’s salary as set forth below and the number of shares required to be held is determined annually based on the 90-day average stock price on July 1. The required multiple for each executive is reviewed annually by the Compensation Committee to ensure that it provides enough incentive to properly align the interests of senior management with those of our shareholders.
Until an executive meets the required number of shares, they are limited with respect to the number of shares they are allowed to sell, and are only allowed to sell one-half of the shares issued with respect to vested RSUs and PRSUs that remain after payment of taxes (standard practice is to sell a portion of shares that vest to cover the tax burden caused by the vesting); the other one-half that must be retained is used to determine the interim ownership requirement until the full number of shares is reached, with each successive vesting being added to the prior interim requirement in order to establish the new requirement.
Based on these requirements, the full number of shares required to be held by each of our NEOs, the multiple of each executive’s base salary full ownership would represent, and the requirement as of July 1, 2023 provided in the table below. The Compensation Committee believes these salary multiples are robust and above comparable peer levels.
|Name||Multiple of Salary|
|John S. Mengucci||8x|
|Jeffrey D. MacLauchlan||7x|
|J. William Koegel, Jr.||5x|
Stockholdings are measured annually as of July 1st to determine compliance with the requirements, which are based upon the prior year’s level plus one-half of all vested restricted stock and/or restricted stock units after taxes are withheld since the prior July 1st. Only fully owned shares count in the measurement; unvested restricted stock, restricted stock units and performance restricted stock units do not count, nor do any other unvested and/or unexercised instruments.
To encourage compliance, once an executive reaches full compliance, they must maintain compliance or they will be required to participate in the MSPP with 100% of the annual portion of his or her annual incentive plan compensation being applied to acquire RSUs until such time that he or she meets the required holding level.
All NEOs were in compliance with their respective stock ownership requirements as of July 1, 2023.
The Company has not adopted a formal policy regarding the ability of employees or directors to purchase financial instruments or otherwise engage in transactions that hedge or offset any decrease in the value of the Company’s shares. The Company does require pre-approval of any transaction related to the Company’s securities by the Company’s executive officers and directors.
Compensation Clawback Policy
We maintain a formal “clawback” policy for incentive awards that is broader in its reach than that imposed by Section 304 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). The policy was adopted in fiscal year 2010 and covers incentive awards to “officers” (as defined in Section 16 of the Exchange Act). Under the policy, in the event of a restatement of previously reported financial results, the Compensation Committee may require reimbursement of the incremental portion of incentive awards paid to executive officers in excess of the awards that should properly have been paid based on the restated financial results.
In June 2023, the SEC approved the NYSE’s proposed clawback listing standards requiring public companies to recover certain erroneously awarded incentive-based compensation in the event of an accounting restatement. We are evaluating the approved listing standards and will adopt and implement a policy that complies with the listing standards by the applicable deadline.
Impact of Regulatory Requirements
The Compensation Committee seeks regular updates on changes in regulations affecting compensation and how they impact executive compensation. The Compensation Committee considers applicable regulatory requirements when making compensation decisions and seeks to ensure that Company compensation plans continue to meet such requirements.
Prior to its amendment by the TCJA, which was enacted December 22, 2017, section 162(m) of the IRC (“Section 162(m)”), disallowed a tax deduction to public companies for compensation paid in excess of $1 million to “covered employees” under Section 162(m). Prior to this amendment, there was an exception to this $1 million limitation for performance-based compensation if certain requirements were met. The Compensation Committee has historically designed its compensation programs based on its belief that a substantial portion of the compensation payable to NEOs should be based on the achievement of performance-based targets or otherwise be designed with the intent that such compensation qualifies as deductible performance-based compensation under Section 162(m).
As in prior years, the Compensation Committee will continue to take into account the tax and accounting implications (including with respect to the lack of deductibility under the revised Section 162(m)) when making compensation decisions but reserves its right to make compensation decisions based on other factors if the Compensation Committee determines that it is in the Company’s best interests to do so. Further, taking into account the elimination of the exception for performance-based compensation, the Compensation Committee may determine to make changes or amendments to the Company’s existing compensation programs in order to revise aspects of our programs that were initially designed to comply with Section 162(m) but that may no longer provide the intended tax advantages.
The Company performs an annual assessment of the Company’s overall compensation risk profile. The Compensation Committee also engages Mercer to review the risk assessment of the Company’s executive and non-executive compensation programs.
As a part of this risk assessment, the Company has made the following findings about CACI’s compensation programs:
• the Board and the Compensation Committee exercise close oversight over the performance measures utilized by the cash incentive plans and the long-term incentive plans, which in combination serve to balance short-term and long-term performance requirements and enhance shareholder value;
• the performance objectives of the plans are linked such that achievement of annual incentive plan measures serves to enhance the performance of the Company;
• the balance of total compensation is more heavily weighted to long-term incentives, and increasing margins and stock price over the long-term provides the maximum incentive value; and
• the Company has a rigorous system of internal controls designed to prevent any individual employee from creating adverse material risk in pursuit of short- or long-term compensation. For example, the Board must approve all capital outlays of $10 million or more, as well as all acquisitions and divestitures of $5 million or more.
Based on these analyses, the Compensation Committee believes that the Company’s compensation programs do not encourage excessive risk-taking.
Compensation Committee Report

(1) Amounts reported in the Salary column represent actual base salary earned in fiscal years 2023, 2022, or 2021.
(2) Amount reported in the Bonus column represents additional payment made to Mr. Mutryn upon his retirement related to his service and contributions to the company.
(3) The amounts reported in the Stock Awards column represent the aggregate grant date fair value of each performance-restricted stock unit or restricted stock unit granted during such year, as computed in accordance with ASC 718. See Note 15 of the Company’s audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 10, 2023. The grant date fair value of performance-based awards in fiscal year 2021 was calculated using the Monte Carlo simulation method. The PRSUs granted are based on the following performance conditions: (a) fiscal year 2021 grants are based on the Company’s performance during the year ended June 30, 2021 and the Company’s stock price for the 90-day period ended October 1, 2021, 2022 and 2023 as compared to the stock price for the 90-day period ended October 1, 2020. As of the end of fiscal year 2023, the cash value of the resulting award would be 131% of the target award; if we achieve maximum performance conditions for this grant (100% increase in average stock price at grant), then the cash value of the resulting awards would be 150% of the amounts shown in the table; (b) half of the fiscal year 2022 grants are PRSUs based on the Company’s earnings performance during the three-year period ending June 30, 2024, if we achieve maximum performance conditions for this grant, then two times the number of PRSUs granted will vest; (c) half of the fiscal year 2023 grants are PRSUs based on the Company’s earnings performance during the three-year period ending June 30, 2025, if we achieve maximum performance conditions for this grant, then two times the number of PRSUs granted will vest.
(4) Amounts reported in the Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation column represent performance-based incentive compensation earned in fiscal years 2023, 2022, or 2021.
(5) Represents the aggregate change in the actuarial present value of Mr. Mengucci’s accumulated benefit under his Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan. For more information, see “Compensation Discussion and Analysis – Retirement Plans.”
(6) The table below describes the elements included in All Other Compensation for fiscal year 2023:
Long-Term Care Premiums(c)
(a) Represents the Company’s contribution, net of forfeitures of 5% on compensation in excess of the limit provided in IRC section 401(a)(17), which limit may be adjusted annually.
(b) Represents cash-out of vacation accrual balance.
(c) Represents premiums paid by the Company for a long-term care insurance policy.
(d) 50% Company match of the first 8% of contributions by the executive officer under the Company’s 401(k) plan (401(k) Match).
(e) For Mr. Mengucci includes personal use of a car service and personal security driver of $86,436, perquisite allowance of $25,000, automobile expenses of $4,326, tax and investment services of $15,959, and spousal airfare of $7,244. As discussed in “Benefits and Executive Perquisites” the Company provides the CEO with certain travel security protection due to the nature of our business and security threat information. The amounts reflected in the “All Other Compensation” column include expenses for certain travel security that we treat as perquisites under relevant SEC guidance, even though the need for such expenses arises from the risks associated with their positions with the Company. For fiscal year 2023, the values shown include personal use of a vehicle and driver used for security purposes for Mr. Mengucci. The aggregate incremental cost for personal security is calculated based on actual billings for services and fees charged directly to the Company by third party firms providing security personnel; these costs are inclusive of a monthly fixed fee for all services, and, as incurred, any additional fees based on daily rates and other expenses. No security personnel under this provision are employees of the Company. To calculate the aggregate incremental cost of Mr. Mengucci’s personal use of the personal security driver and vehicle, we allocated a portion of the actual cost paid to the third-party firms to personal use based on mileage driven for personal use, and actual security costs and fees incurred for any other personal usage of the security services. For any periods where data was not currently available, we based the personal usage allocation on the data currently in our possession.
For Mr. MacLauchlan includes automobile expenses of $2,809.
For Ms. Gray includes automobile expenses of $5,064, tax and investment services of $57,430 and spousal airfare of $8,079.
For Mr. Probert includes automobile expenses of $3,482 and tax and investment services of $5,150.
For Mr. Koegel includes automobile expenses of $29,964.
For Mr. Mutryn includes automobile expenses of $20,581 and tax and investment services of $21,530.

(1) Executive contributions are included in the Salary and Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation columns in the Summary Compensation Table.
(2) Company contributions are included in the All Other Compensation column of the Summary Compensation Table.
(3) There were no above-market or preferential earnings on deferred compensation in fiscal year 2023; accordingly, no portion of the amounts in the Aggregate Earnings column are reported as compensation in the Summary Compensation Table.
(4) Certain amounts in the Aggregate Balance at Last Fiscal Year End column were previously reported in the Summary Compensation Table in the Salary, Bonus and Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation columns (in the case of executive contributions) or in the All Other Compensation column (in the case of Company contributions). The amounts previously reported as executive and Company contributions were as follows: (i) Mr. Mengucci, $1,184,027 and $1,078,138; (ii) Ms. Gray, $916,559 and $436,468; and (iii) Mr. Koegel, $244,010 and $124,307 and Mr. Mutryn $996,033 and $855,442.
CEO Pay Ratio
In accordance with Section 953(b) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and Item 402(u) of Regulation S-K, the ratio of the annual total compensation of our President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) during fiscal year 2023 (Mr. Mengucci) to the annual total compensation of our median employee was computed to be 92 to 1 for fiscal year 2023, based on the methodology described below.
As of June 30, 2023, our total active employee population consisted of approximately 22,000 individuals, including our CEO. We compared the annual salary of all active employees, with the exception of Mr. Mengucci, as reflected in our human resources systems of record; as part of this process, we annualized compensation for any employees who were employed for less than the full fiscal year, but we did not annualize the compensation for employees in temporary or seasonal positions. This measure was consistently applied to all individuals in the measured employee population and yielded our “approximate median employee.”
For the approximate median employee, we then calculated their annual total compensation for fiscal year 2023 using the same methodology we used for purposes of determining the annual total compensation of our CEO in the Summary Compensation Table. This yielded compensation for the approximate median employee of $114,453.
The annual total compensation of Mr. Mengucci, as reported in the Summary Compensation Table above, was $10,524,801. The ratio of the annual total compensation of Mr. Mengucci to the compensation for the approximate median employee was then computed, yielding the final result of 92 to 1. We believe this is a reasonable estimate calculated in a manner consistent with Item 402(u) of Regulation S-K.
We note that, in determining the employees from which the median employee is identified, SEC rules permit companies to use statistical sampling, reasonable estimates and other reasonable methods. As a result, the pay ratios
reported by other companies may have been calculated using methodologies, exclusions and estimates that differ from the ones we used to calculate our pay ratio. Accordingly, our pay ratio may not be directly comparable to the pay ratios of other companies.
Pay Versus Performance
The following table provides three years of the Company’s compensation and performance history prepared in accordance with Item 402(v) of Regulation S-K and does not necessarily reflect value actually realized by our executive officers or how the Compensation Committee evaluates compensation decisions in light of company or individual performance. For information on how our Human Resources and Compensation Committee aligns pay with performance when making compensation decisions, please review the Compensation Discussion and Analysis beginning on page 23. The Summary Compensation Table on page 41 shows the salary, annual incentive, and accounting fair value of equity awards granted in the year shown (at the time the grant was made). The Compensation Actually Paid (CAP) table shows the value of the FY23 grant at year-end, plus the year-over-year change in the fair value of multiple years of historical equity grants. Because CAP includes multiple years of grants, the calculation of CAP each year is heavily impacted by the change in the stock price, and therefore, may be higher or lower than the SCT compensation values.

(2) The dollar amounts reported in the "Compensation Actually Paid to PEO" and "Compensation Actually Paid to Non-PEO NEOs" reflect "Total Compensation" as set forth in the Summary Compensation Table for each year, adjusted as follows, and with calculations shown in the tables below. Equity values are determined in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718. The fair values for outstanding and unvested equity awards made in fiscal years 2019, 2020, and 2021 were estimated using Monte Carlo simulation model factors as disclosed in the company’s Form 10-K for each fiscal year:
• minus the Annual Stock Award
• minus the Change in Pension Value
• plus the Pension Service Cost
• plus Equity Value, which is calculated as:
a. the fair value of outstanding and unvested equity awards at the end of each fiscal year
b. plus/(less) the change in fair value as of fiscal year-end for unvested awards
c. plus the fair value as of vesting for awards granted and vested during the year
d. plus/(less) the annual change in value as of vesting for prior year's awards
e. less prior year-end fair value for any equity awards forfeited during the year.

The amounts deducted or added in calculating the Equity Values are included in the table below. In 2023, 2022 and 2021, the fair value of the grants awarded in the respective years increased at the end of the year due to the growth in stock price, which is a key driver of CAP year-over-year.

(4) Peer Group is Dow Jones US Computer Services Index Total Shareholder Return (TSR) is calculated by dividing (a) the sum of (i) the cumulative amount of dividends for the measurement period, assuming dividend reinvestment, and (ii) the difference between the Company's share price at the end of each fiscal year shown and the beginning of the measurement period, and the beginning of the measurement period by (b) the Company's share price at the beginning of the measurement period. The beginning of the measurement period for each year in the table is July 1, 2020.
(5) SEC rules require us to designate a “company-selected measure” that in our assessment represents the most important financial performance measure (that is not total shareholder return or net income) used by the Company to link the CAP of our NEOs, for the most recently completed fiscal year, to our performance. We selected Revenue as this measure for 2023 as reflected in column (i) in the first table above. This performance measure may not have been the most important financial performance measure for years 2022 and 2021 and we may determine a different financial performance measure to be the most important financial performance measure in future years.

Most Important Performance Measures
The table below provides the five most important measures used by the Company to link CAP to our PEO and Non-PEO NEOs in 2023. The measures in this table are not ranked:
3-Year EBITDA Growth1
(1) Used as performance metric for PRSUs granted in FY2022 and FY2023
Messrs. Mengucci, MacLauchlan, and Koegel have severance agreements with terms of one year with automatic one-year extensions thereafter, unless the Company provides written notice of the Company’s intent to amend the Company’s severance policy with respect to its senior executives and to apply the amended policy to them. In the event the Company provides such notice to them, agreements expire by their terms at the end of the full-term year that begins on the next July 1st following the date such notice is received by the executive officer.
Per the terms of the agreements, employment may be terminated by the Company without a separation payment of any kind in the event of death or a termination for cause as determined by the Board.
In the event of a termination by the Company for disability, the Company is generally required to provide 30 days’ notice and pay any incentive compensation earned but unpaid as of the date of termination for any fiscal year prior to the year in which such termination occurs.
In the event of termination without cause by the Company or resignation for “good reason” by the executive, as defined in the agreements, the Company will pay a severance payment equal to a specified number of months of the executive’s base salary, prorated cash incentive compensation payments otherwise payable under the executive’s incentive compensation plan for the fiscal year of termination, and continued participation in the Company’s health care plan for a defined period of time. Further, for unvested stock grants made prior to fiscal year 2022, the terms of the grant agreements entitle the recipient to receive a prorated portion of the unvested stock based upon the number of full months of service divided by the total vesting timeframe. When the executive’s resignation is not associated with a change in control, “good reason” is defined as (i) a material reduction in the executive’s total compensation and benefit opportunity (other than a reduction made by the Board, acting in good faith, based upon the performance of the executive, or to align the compensation and benefits of the executive with that of comparable executives, based on market data); or (ii) a substantial adverse alteration in the conditions of the executive’s employment. For unvested stock grants made in fiscal year 2022 and thereafter, the terms of the grant agreements entitle the recipient to receive continued vesting of the unvested stock upon termination without cause no earlier than one year following the grant date, subject to the executive’s continued compliance with noncompetition and nonsolicitation covenants.
In the event of a termination without cause or resignation for “good reason” within one year of the effective date (or within six months prior to the effective date for Messrs. Mengucci and MacLauchlan) of a change in control, the agreements provide that the Company will pay similar termination payments as in the preceding paragraph but require the executive’s base salary to be paid for a higher number of specified months and a specified payment based on the average incentive compensation earned by the executive for the five fiscal years immediately preceding the termination. Further, the terms of the grant agreements entitle the recipient to receive their unvested stock. In the event of a change in control, “good reason” is defined as (i) a substantial adverse alteration in the nature or status of the executive’s position or responsibilities from those in effect on the day before the change in control date; or (ii) a change in the geographic location of the executive’s job more than 50 miles from the place at which such job was based on the day before the change in control date.
The table below delineates the benefits upon separation for Messrs. Mengucci, MacLauchlan, and Koegel under the scenarios as described above:
|Salary Multiple: Termination for Good Reason or Involuntary Termination Without Cause||2x||1x||1x|
Salary Multiple: Upon Change in Control and Termination for Good Reason or Involuntary Termination Without Cause
|Bonus Multiple: Upon Change in Control and Termination for Good Reason or Involuntary Termination Without Cause (average annual payment for last five years)||2x||1.5x||1x|
The agreements also restrict each executive officer’s rights to compete with the Company or to offer employment to Company employees following termination.
In the event of a termination of employment, Ms. Gray and Mr. Probert will receive severance in accordance with the Company’s policies, which provides for six months’ salary upon involuntary separation without cause.
Calculations for various termination scenarios are included in the “Potential Payments on Termination or Change in Control” section below.
Potential Payments on Termination or Change in Control
The table below reflects the amount of compensation payable to each NEO upon termination of employment under various termination scenarios. The tables show the amount of compensation payable to each NEO upon voluntary termination (other than for “good reason”) or retirement not in connection with a change in control, upon termination by the Company without cause or by the NEO for “good reason” other than in connection with a change in control, and upon termination by the Company without cause or by the NEO for “good reason” following a change in control. The amounts shown assume, for illustrative purposes, that such termination was effective as of June 30, 2023, and therefore include amounts earned through such date, and are estimates of the amounts which would be paid to the NEOs upon termination. The actual amounts to be paid can be determined only at the time of the actual separation from the Company.
|Separation Payment in event of Termination without “Good Reason” or Retirement not in connection with a Change in Control|
|Separation Payment in event of Termination for “Good Reason” or Without Cause by Company not in connection with a Change in Control|
Separation Payment in event of Termination for “Good Reason” or Without Cause by Company following a Change in Control(7)
(1) For the Separation Payment following a Change in Control, includes incentive plan amounts earned but not yet paid for fiscal year 2023 for all NEOs.
(2) Assumes that Messrs. Mengucci, MacLauchlan, and Koegel are entitled to receive continuation of health benefits following the date of separation for reasons other than voluntary termination or retirement. For Messrs. Mengucci, MacLauchlan, and Koegel, the table value represents the total values of continued current medical, dental, and vision insurance coverage over the duration of the coverage period, less the executive’s current portion of the cost, plus the amount required to cover all estimated applicable local, state and federal income and payroll taxes imposed with respect to such payment.
(3) Represents the value of monies deferred into the non-qualified retirement plan during employment, plus investment gains and losses, that would be payable upon termination.
(4) Represents the value of all Company contributions paid into the non-qualified retirement plan on behalf of the executive officer during employment that would be payable upon termination. In the event of termination for “Good Reason” or without cause within one year after the effective date of a Change in Control, all unvested Company contributions would vest.
(5) Represents the present value of benefits accrued by Mr. Mengucci through June 30, 2023 under his SERP. The accrued benefit would be paid over his expected remaining lifespan.
(6) Based on the number of RSUs that would vest and the terms of RSU grants as described in the “Severance and Change in Control Benefits” section, multiplied by the closing price per share of the Company’s common stock as of June 30, 2023. For the performance-based grants made in October 2020 and October 2021 the maximum number of RSUs for which the measurement periods were not complete would be paid upon a change in control.
(7) For Messrs. Mengucci, MacLauchlan, and Koegel, assumes that the executive officer resigned for “good reason” or was terminated without cause within one year after a change in control. Ms. Gray and Mr. Probert would be entitled to the cash severance only upon termination without cause by the Company.
