Bonus – You will continue your participation in Spansion's Vice President Incentive Plan (VPIP) with a short-term component target of 50% of base pay and a maximum of 150% of base pay. The long-term component of the VPIP will be a modified version of the current AMD VPIP long-term component for which your target is 30% of base pay.
Benefits and Perquisites – Spansion makes available the same comprehensive benefits program available through AMD; including medical, dental, life and disability insurance coverage, 401(k) retirement savings plan with matching contributions, cash and deferred profit sharing plans, a payroll deduction stock investment plan, and a paid sabbatical after seven years of employment. The only current difference between AMD and Spansion benefits involves taxation under the stock purchase plan.
As a current employee of Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., you will be eligible for bridging your AMD and Spansion service for purposes of stock option vesting continuity (if applicable), profit sharing eligibility, continuing sabbatical (or recognition trip) and vacation accrual. Your current accrued and unused vacation time will transfer with you to Spansion. In addition, your current elections under AMD's benefits programs (e.g. health and welfare insurance coverage, 401k contributions, flexibility account contributions, and stock purchase plan contributions, etc.) will move with you to Spansion.
Spansion also makes available to our Vice Presidents, a broad range of benefits and executive perquisites including disability insurance and a $2,000 monthly company car allowance. You will be taxed on the allowance based on a table produced by the IRS. Spansion will also reimburse you for your tax and estate planning/preparation up to $6,000 yearly.
In addition, you will receive, at company expense, individual life insurance of three times your base salary up to a maximum of $2,000,000 and you are eligible to participate in Spansion's Executive Savings Plan. This plan enables you to contribute salary and/or bonus dollars on a tax deferred basis.
