2014 CEO Bonus Formula

On March 3, 2014, the Compensation Committee (the “Compensation Committee”) of the Board of Directors of MicroStrategy Incorporated (the “Company”) established a formula (the “2014 CEO Bonus Formula”) for determining the eligible bonus with respect to the performance of Michael J. Saylor, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), during the fiscal year ending December 31, 2014. The 2014 CEO Bonus Formula provides for an eligible bonus calculated using graduated rates based on the Company’s diluted earnings per share (“DEPS”) for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2014, as follows:

 

    $400,000 per dollar of DEPS for the first dollar of DEPS, plus

 

    $500,000 per dollar of DEPS for the second dollar of DEPS, plus

 

    $600,000 per dollar of DEPS for each dollar of DEPS over $2.

Mr. Saylor’s maximum cash bonus pursuant to the 2014 CEO Bonus Formula is $8,000,000. The Compensation Committee has the discretion to award a cash bonus lower than the eligible bonus calculated using the 2014 CEO Bonus Formula.

2014 President Bonus Formulas

On March 3, 2014, the Compensation Committee established formulas (each, a “2014 President Bonus Formula”) for determining the eligible bonuses with respect to the performance of each of Jonathan F. Klein, the Company’s President & Chief Legal Officer, and Paul N. Zolfaghari, the Company’s President, during the fiscal year ending December 31, 2014. Each of the 2014 President Bonus Formulas provides for an eligible bonus calculated by multiplying $160,000 by the Company’s DEPS for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2014.

The maximum cash bonus for each of Messrs. Klein and Zolfaghari pursuant to their respective 2014 President Bonus Formulas is $6,500,000. The Compensation Committee has the discretion to award a cash bonus lower than the eligible bonus calculated using each 2014 President Bonus Formula.
