Annual LTIP awards are comprised of two components; 40% of the award consists of time-based restricted stock units (RSUs) and 60% consists of performance-based restricted stock units (PSUs). Performance payouts can range from 0 to 200%. Financial performance objectives for the LTIP are also established annually by the Compensation Committee.

As an executive officer, you will be eligible to enter into an Executive Severance Agreement (the “Change in Control Agreement”) that extends benefits in the event JBT undergoes a qualified change in control action.
