|Item 1.01||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement|
On April 24, 2006, the Compensation Committee (the Committee) of the Board of Directors of BearingPoint, Inc. (the Company) recommended to the Board of Directors of the Company for approval and the Board of Directors did approve two conditional grants of restricted stock units (the Restricted Stock) to Harry L. You, Chief Executive Officer. Each restricted stock unit represents the right to receive either (i) one share of common stock of the Company or (ii) cash equal to the fair market value of one share of common stock. The awards are dependent on 2006 performance and will be granted when the Company is current in its SEC filings, has a valid Form S-8 registration statement covering such grants and has sufficient shares available under the Companys Long-Term Incentive Plan (the LTIP) (collectively, the Pre-conditions).
The first conditional grant (the First Grant) is for Restricted Stock having a value of $750,000. The First Grant shall be made if both (i) the Company becomes timely in its SEC filings prior to December 31, 2006 and (ii) at the time that the Company becomes timely in its SEC filings, the Company also is in compliance with the terms of its credit facility relating to the filing of its SEC reports. The First Grant shall be effective (the First Grant Date) when both the performance requirements specified in the immediately preceding sentence and the Pre-conditions are satisfied. The number of shares of common stock that will be issuable with respect to the First Grant will then be determined by dividing $750,000 by the price of a share of common stock on the First Grant Date. The Restricted Stock will vest 25% on each of the First Grant Date and the next three anniversaries of the First Grant Date.
The second conditional grant (the Second Grant) is for Restricted Stock having a value of $750,000. The Second Grant shall be made if the Company achieves GAAP operating income for 2006 of $180 million - $200 million. If the Company achieves GAAP operating income for 2006 of $200 million or more, the Second Grant shall have a value of $750,000. If the Company achieves GAAP operating income for 2006 of $180 million or more, but less than $200 million, the value of the Second Grant shall be reduced proportionately such that the Second Grant shall have a value of 75% of $750,000 if GAAP operating income for 2006 is $180 million. If GAAP operating income for 2006 is less than $180 million, the Second Grant shall not be made. The Second Grant shall be effective (the Second Grant Date) when both the Company has reasonably determined that the GAAP operating income performance requirements specified above have been achieved (which shall not require the completion of audited financial statements for 2006), and the Pre-conditions are satisfied. The number of shares of common stock that will be issuable with respect to the Second Grant will then be determined by dividing $750,000 (or the proportionately smaller amount determined by the formula set forth above) by the price of a share of common stock on the Second Grant Date. The Restricted Stock will vest 25% on each of the Second Grant Date and the next three anniversaries of the Second Grant Date.
With respect to both the First Grant and the Second Grant, if a Change of Control (as defined in the LTIP) occurs before the grant is effective, the relevant grant shall be made effective (the COC Grant Date) upon the Change of Control. The Restricted Stock will then vest 25% on each of the COC Grant Date and the next three anniversaries of the COC Grant Date. In addition, if Mr. You is terminated by the Company other than for Cause subsequent to the COC Grant Date, all Restricted Stock shall vest on the termination date. If on the COC Grant Date or any subsequent date on which Restricted Stock vests, the Company does not have sufficient shares available under the LTIP to vest such Restricted Stock, the Company shall make a cash payment to Mr. You equal to the fair market value on that date of such Restricted Stock.
