UPS 2006 Long-Term Incentive Performance Awards
If you ever wonder why management is so intense about "making the numbers", the performance awards could be a big part of it. In a SEC filing, Jan. 13, 2006, the company described the awards:
"Under the Plan, restricted stock units ("RSUs") representing shares of class A common stock will be awarded to executive officers, officers and certain other eligible managers pursuant to a RSU award agreement. Target RSU award grants will range in size from 50%-250% of annual salary."

Performance awards that start at 50% of annual salary????
I say that we put them on a car and let them deliver for a week under PAS. Since anyone should be able to run scratch, we give the the bonus ONLY if they run under every day under their own standards!
I'd come back out of retirement to watch that fiasco. ROFLMAO
I hate to ruin your hate trip but the numbers you state above are way over stated. The RSU's sit in an account where they are not distributed for up to 5 years. They may if UPS has a good year end up equaling approximately 10 percent of a managers salary.
Could you please explain the disparity in %. You say 10, others say 50-250. 1
Not my numbers... UPS's SEC (Security and Exchange Commision) Filing.
Best not to be lying to the SEC.
"The RSU awards that vest will be paid in the form of UPS class A shares on March 13, 2009 (or earlier in the event of death). " That's 3 years on my calendar.
After taking a second look it appears to be a filing for stock options for upper leverl executive management. The right to buy stock options is awarded this year. The divison or higher manager can not actually buy the stock award until 5 years from now at todays price. If the stock were to take off and increase significantly in price in 5 years then it could be a nice award if it follows the same pattern it has since going public then it would not be that great a deal. If the divison manager or higher keeps his position for 5 years then he picks up the RSU's in 5 years. He then either buys the stock outright in 5 years or sells some of his current stock to pay for the purchase in 5 years. Its a gross number the filing shows. The net result after this paper transaction would be a lot less but still a nice chunk of change. The RSU system reported in the filing is actually a lot less now then what those type of managers got in the old days. Its a great system if the stock shows appreciable growth each year. But not as good if it shows modest growth. I'm very skeptical about any manager even the upper level actually netting what is listed in the filing.
