(e) On September 14, 2010, the Board of Directors and its Compensation Committee (the “Compensation Committee”) of Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (the “Company”) approved (i) cash bonuses for the officers of the Company for their performance during fiscal year 2010, (ii) base salaries adjustments for certain officers effective September 20, 2010, and (iii) a new cash incentive compensation plan for officers applicable to fiscal year 2011 performance.
Cash bonuses awarded to the principal executive officer, principal financial officer and other named executive officers of the Company that will appear in our 2010 Proxy Statement in connection with our Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on November 9, 2010 (collectively, the “NEOs”) for their fiscal year 2010 performance, along with base salary adjustments effective September 20, 2010, are set forth in the table below:

(1) Bonuses were calculated under the Officer Compensation Plan previously disclosed on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 27, 2009 using the following company-wide performance metrics: (i) operating income (less special expense items), (ii) year-over-year growth in operating income (less special expense items) and (iii) year-over-year stock price performance of the Company relative to its peer group of companies. In addition, each officer's share of the aggregate bonus pool was determined by each officer's position points and personal performance during fiscal year 2010, in accordance with the Officer Compensation Plan for fiscal year 2010.
Under the new cash incentive compensation plan for officers applicable to fiscal year 2011 performance, the aggregate cash bonus pool available for distribution to all officers of the Company, including the NEOs, will range from 1.44% to 2.16% of the Company's operating income as determined under U.S. General Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), excluding special expense items. The metric that determines the percentage of the Company's operating income available for distribution to all officers is year-over-year stock price performance of the Company relative to a peer group consisting of five (5) other companies measured during the April-June time period. The target aggregate cash bonus pool is an amount equal to 1.8% of the Company's operating income as determined under GAAP, excluding special expense items. Each officer's share of the aggregate bonus pool is determined based upon their position points and personal performance.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
