FY11 Executive Annual Incentive Compensation Plan
Job Category: Chief Executive Officer


Provide critical focus on specific, measurable corporate goals and provide performance-based compensation based upon the level of attainment of such goals.

Bonus Target:

The target incentive bonus for this position is 150% of the annual base salary. Annual base salary has been established at the beginning of the fiscal year. Bonuses will be paid based on actual annual base salary earnings from time of eligibility under the Plan through April 1, 2011. Payments will be subject to applicable payroll taxes and withholdings.

Bonus Payments:

The annual incentive bonus will be paid once annually. Payment will be made within six weeks after the end of the fiscal year but in the event the amount cannot be calculated within such six weeks in no event may payments be made later than 2-1/2 (two and a half) months after the end of the fiscal year. Any payment due under this Plan is at the sole discretion of the Administrator of the Plan.


Two performance metrics will be used to determine the annual incentive bonus payment as determined by the Administrator.

Metric Weighting

Corporate Revenue



Corporate Earnings per Share



The Company153s reported numbers are based on GAAP Corporate Revenue & non-GAAP EPS results.

Achievement Schedule:

The established threshold must be exceeded for the applicable performance metric before the bonus applicable to such performance metric will be paid. Both Corporate Revenue and Corporate EPS achievements are capped.


The calculation of the annual incentive bonus will be based on eligible base salary earnings for the fiscal year and, subject to the eligibility requirements below, will be pro-rated based on the number of days the participant is employed as a regular status employee of Symantec during the fiscal year.


Participants must be regular status employees on the day bonus checks are distributed. If the Company grants an interim payment for any reason, the participant must be a regular status employee at the end of that performance period in order to receive such payment. A participant who leaves before the end of the fiscal year will not be eligible to receive the annual incentive bonus or any pro-rated portion thereof. The Plan participant must be a regular status employee of Symantec at the end of the fiscal year in order to be eligible to receive the annual incentive bonus and at the time the bonus checks are distributed, unless otherwise determined by the Administrator.

To be eligible for the plan in the given fiscal year, participants must be in an eligible position for at least 60 days before the end of the plan year. Employees hired or promoted into an eligible position with less than 60 days in the plan year will join the annual bonus plan in the next fiscal year.

Exchange Rates:

The performance metrics targets will not be adjusted for any fluctuating currency exchange rates.
