Fiscal Year 2021 Performance-Based Restricted Stock Award Targets and Performance Criteria
On May 12, 2020, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Qorvo, Inc. (the “Company”) approved awards of performance-based restricted stock units (“Awards”) in accordance with the Qorvo, Inc. 2012 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended (the “2012 Plan”), to each of the Company’s named executive officers. The purpose of these Awards is to link a portion of each named executive officer’s equity compensation to achievement of key Company initiatives that the Committee believes have a strong potential to impact longer-term stockholder value creation. The fair market value for each share of restricted stock underlying each Award was established by the Committee in accordance with the 2012 Plan at $100.67 per share, which was the closing price of the Company’s common stock as reported on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on May 12, 2020. Each Award, in addition to being subject to customary terms and conditions as set forth in the 2012 Plan and respective Award agreement, is subject to specified performance and service conditions and represents a contingent right to receive an amount of the Company’s common stock at a future date.

Each Award will be earned by each named executive officer to the extent the Company achieves at least one, and up to eleven, performance objectives (the “Performance Objectives”) established by the Committee. Eight of the Performance Objectives have between two and five sub-objectives that can be separately met. Nine Performance Objectives must be satisfied during the Company’s current fiscal year ending April 3, 2021, one Performance Objective must be completed by May 1, 2021 and one Performance Objective must be completed no later than September 30, 2021 (each a “Measurement Date”). Each Performance Objective and sub-objective is separately weighted and expressed as a percentage of a target number of common shares. If a Performance Objective or sub-objective is met, the named executive officer will be granted an Award for a number of shares equal to the target multiplied by the applicable percentage earned and assigned to such Performance Objective or sub-objective. The named executive officer may earn up to 150% of the target number of Awards if all Performance Objectives are met in full. The Performance Objectives relate to securing specific design wins, making specific R&D-related improvements, implementing or realizing specific manufacturing-related and operational improvements, further improving environmental performance, developing or qualifying specific product and process technologies, and making key IT-related improvements. The shares of restricted stock earned by the named executive officer with respect to a Performance Objective, if any, will vest over a three-year period, with 50% vesting upon certification of the level of achievement by the Committee after the applicable Measurement Date for the applicable Performance Objective and the remaining 50% vesting in equal annual installments over each of the following two years. No shares are issued unless, and then only to the extent that, an Award is both earned and vested.

Subject to satisfaction of the Performance Objectives, each named executive officer will be eligible to receive shares of restricted common stock of the Company up to the maximum number of shares set forth below:
