Consistent with Nasdaq Marketplace Rules, or the Nasdaq rules, these nominees were approved by a majority of our independent directors, within the meaning of applicable Nasdaq rules. Our Board of Directors has determined that each of the nominees is independent within the meaning of applicable Nasdaq rules. Our Board of Directors has also determined, following confirmation of our Audit Committee, to classify Mr. Ilan Biran as an “independent director” within the meaning of the Companies Law.

Non-Employee Directors Remuneration

 

All of our directors are entitled to reimbursement of expenses. In addition, other than Mr. Cleary (who is entitled only to reimbursement of expenses), our non-employee directors, including external directors, receive the following compensation:

 

  · Dr. Yaron, the chairman of our Board of Directors, is entitled, pursuant to the consultancy agreement we entered into with a company wholly owned by Dr. Yaron in May 2001 (as amended), to a monthly payment of $6,250, plus VAT. Under the agreement, Dr. Yaron is required to provide us with consulting services, including service as a chairman of our Board of Directors, on a part-time basis of 40% of the work week.

 

  · Mr. Biran, Ms. Krindel Sieradzki and Ms. Ozer-Armon are each currently entitled to an annual fee of NIS 49,605 (equivalent to approximately $14,362) and attendance fees of NIS 3,320 (equivalent to approximately $961) per meeting attended, linked to the Israeli CPI. See also Item 2 below.

 

  · Mr. Gerstel (who, as described above, is not nominated for re-election at the Meeting) and Messrs. Kolber and Totah are each currently entitled (in the case of Messrs.

See also Item 2 below.

  

Consistent with the Compensation Policy and as further approved by our shareholders, we also grant 110,000 service options to each of our non-employee directors for each year of service (or, in the case of external directors, 330,000 service options to each of our two external directors which are divided into three equal portions). For additional details regarding the stock options granted to non-employee directors, see Item 6B of our Annual Report under “Non-Employee Directors Remuneration” and Note 16 to our audited consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report.

 

Other than the foregoing fees, reimbursement for expenses and the award of stock options, we do not compensate our directors for serving on our Board of Directors.

We also currently maintain directors’ and officers’ liability insurance with an aggregate coverage limit of $25 million, with a Side A coverage of an additional $5 million, for an annual premium of approximately $890,000.

 

ITEM 2

COMPENSATION TO NON-EMPLOYEE DIRECTORS

(Item 2 on the Proxy Card)

 

Background

 

Under the Companies Law, the terms of compensation, including the payment of annual and participation fees, of a director of a company incorporated under the laws of Israel whose shares are listed for trading on a stock exchange or have been offered to the public in or outside of Israel, such as Itamar Medical, require the approval of the compensation committee, the board of directors and, subject to certain exceptions, including those specified in the Israeli Companies Regulations (Rules Regarding Compensation and Expenses to an External Director) – 2000 (the “Compensation Regulations”), the shareholders.

 

As more fully described under "Executive Compensation" above, each of Mr. Biran, Ms. Krindel Sieradzki and Ms. Ozer-Armon, all of whom were designated by our Board of Directors as “expert external directors” by virtue of their “accounting and financial expertise” (as such terms are defined in the Compensation Regulations), is currently entitled to an annual fee of NIS 49,605 (equivalent to approximately $14,362) and attendance fees of NIS 3,320 (equivalent to approximately $961) per meeting attended, linked to the Israeli CPI. Each of the other non-employee directors, other than Dr. Yaron and Mr. Cleary, is currently entitled to an annual fee of NIS 37,265 (equivalent to approximately $10,789) and attendance fees of NIS 2,490 (equivalent to approximately $721) per meeting attended, linked to the Israeli CPI.

 

These fees generally reflect, and are tied to, the maximum fees payable to external directors of Israeli companies whose shareholders’ equity is in Tier A of the Compensation Regulations – i.e., a shareholders’ equity of less than approximately NIS 43.5 million (equivalent to approximately $12.6 million).

 

Proposed Modification

 

Our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors have determined to increase the cash compensation payable to our non-employee directors as follows:

 

·Mr. Biran, Ms. Krindel Sieradzki and Ms. Ozer-Armon, as well as any other non-employee director who may serve from time to time and be designated by our Board of Directors as an “expert external director” (as defined in the Compensation Regulations and, for the sake of clarity, whether an external director or not) (together, the “Finance Directors”), will each be entitled to the maximum annual and participation fees set forth in the Compensation Regulations (for expert external directors) pursuant to the shareholders’ equity of the Company (as may be increased or decreased from time to time). Given that our shareholders’ equity as of December 31, 2019 was approximately $16.7 million (Tier B in the Compensation Regulations), this currently means an annual fee of NIS 63,944 (equivalent to approximately $18,513) and attendance fees of NIS 3,320 (equivalent to approximately $961) per meeting attended, linked to the Israeli CPI.

 

·Our other non-employee directors, namely, Messrs. Kolber and Totah, as well as any other non-employee director who may serve from time to time (together, the “Non-Finance Directors”), will each be entitled (in the case of Messrs. Kolber and Totah, by payment to Viola 2) to the maximum annual and participation fees set forth in the Compensation Regulations pursuant to the shareholders’ equity of the Company (as may be increased or decreased from time to time). Given that our shareholders’ equity as of December 31, 2019 was approximately $16.7 million (Tier B in the Compensation Regulations), this currently means an annual fee of NIS 47,958 (equivalent to approximately $13,885) and attendance fees of NIS 2,490 (equivalent to approximately $721) per meeting attended, linked to the Israeli CPI.

 

9 

 

 

·Such fees shall be updated annually to reflect linkage to CPI as well as any increase or decrease in our shareholders’ equity pursuant to, and be paid in the timing and manner of payment set forth in, the Compensation Regulations.

 

·For the sake of clarity, the aforesaid proposed modification in fees will not apply to Dr. Yaron, the Chairman of our Board of Directors, Mr. Cleary and any other director who may serve from time to time and is not an “other director” (as such term is defined in the Compensation Regulations).

 

In approving the proposed changes to the non-employee directors’ compensation, our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors considered various factors, including the following:

 

üThe importance and contribution of the non-employee directors to the Company.

 

üThe effective freeze on the compensation payable to such non-employee directors, which has not changed since the annual meeting we held in May 2016 (other than Israeli CPI linkage).

 

üThe increase of the shareholders’ equity of the Company, from approximately $17.0 million as of December 31, 2015 to approximately $51.6 million as of March 31, 2020. Aside from demonstrating the improvement in our financial position, according to the Compensation Regulations, an increase in the shareholders’ equity generally allows the payment of increased fees.

 

üThe proposed fees are not the maximum fees payable under applicable regulations. In particular, under the Companies Regulations (reliefs to public companies whose securities are traded outside of Israel) – 2000, the maximum fees we, as an Israeli company whose securities are traded on Nasdaq, may pay to external directors – annual fees of NIS 135,646 (equivalent to approximately $39,272) and participation fees of NIS 4,076 (equivalent to approximately $1,180) - are higher than those we propose to pay under the Compensation Regulations.

 

üEqual treatment to external directors. In line with the proportionate compensation of our external directors pursuant to the Compensation Regulations, the update to the compensation payable to the Company’s non-employee directors (excluding Dr. Yaron and Mr. Cleary) will also apply to the external directors. 

 

 

üThe fees payable to the Finance Directors are 33.33% higher than the Non-Finance Director, which is consistent with the Compensation Regulations and otherwise reflects the fact that such directors take additional roles, such as serving as members of our Audit Committee.

 

üOur Compensation Policy and other elements of compensation payable to such non-employee directors, including equity-based compensation.

 

The Proposed Resolutions

 

It is proposed that at the Meeting, the following resolution be adopted:

 

“RESOLVED, that the proposed modifications of the cash compensation payable to non-employee directors, as described in Item 2 of the Company's Proxy Statement for the 2020 Annual General Meeting, be, and the same hereby is, approved.”

 

10 

 

 

Required Vote

 

Under the Companies Law, approval of this matter requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the shares present, in person or by proxy, and voting on the matter.

 

The Board recommends a vote FOR approval of the foregoing proposed resolution

 

 ITEM 3

MODIFICATION TO THE BONUS PLAN OF OUR PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

(Item 3 on the Proxy Card)

 

Background

 

Under the Companies Law, the terms of compensation, including the grant of cash bonuses, of a chief executive officer of a company incorporated under the laws of Israel whose shares are listed for trade on a stock exchange or have been offered to the public in or outside of Israel, such as Itamar Medical, require the approval of the compensation committee, the board of directors and, subject to certain exceptions, the shareholders.

 

Gilad Glick has served as our President and Chief Executive Officer since July 2013. Mr. Glick also serves as a director and as acting president of our U.S. Subsidiary, Itamar Medical Inc.

 

In May 2018, our shareholders approved the annual bonus plan of Mr. Glick for the years 2018 – 2022, whereby, in each of those years, we may pay him a bonus of up to 7.7 monthly salaries subject to meeting revenue targets, to be determined annually by our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors. However, under our current Compensation Policy, which was recently approved by our shareholders in March 2020, we are permitted to provide to our President and Chief Executive Officer a total annual bonus of up to twelve (12) monthly salaries and, in addition, a discretionary bonus of up to three (3) monthly salaries.

 

Proposed Modification

 

Our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors have determined to update and supplement the cash bonus plan payable to Mr. Glick for the next three years (2020, 2021 and 2022) as follows:

 

·Mr. Glick will continue to be eligible for an annual bonus of up to 7.7 monthly salaries, subject to meeting revenues targets determined annually (no later than March 31st of each year) by our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors, as previously approved by our shareholders in May 2018 (the “Revenue-Based Annual Bonus”).

 

·Consistent with our Compensation Policy, Mr. Glick will be eligible for an annual bonus of between 4.3 and 9.5 monthly salaries, subject to meeting certain Personal Targets in line with Section 5 of our Compensation Policy, which shall be determined annually (no later than March 31st of each year) by our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors (the “KPI-Based Annual Bonus”); provided that the total annual bonus, comprised of the Revenue-Based Annual Bonus and the KPI-Based Annual Bonus, shall not exceed twelve (12) months’ salaries in the aggregate (the “Total Annual Bonus”). In addition, up to 20% of the Total Annual Bonus may be granted based on a performance evaluation of Mr. Glick by our Board of Directors, following recommendation and approval of the Compensation Committee. In this respect, it should be noted that:

 

oThe Personal Targets, which shall be determined annually by our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors, must consist of one or more of the criteria targets listed in Section 5 of our Compensation Policy and shall be determined in line with our President and Chief Executive Officer’s position and his respective responsibilities and targets, as well as our work plan for the applicable fiscal year. This means that such Personal Targets for each of the years 2020 through 2022, shall include, one or more of the following types of criteria targets: development of strategic plans; cash management; development of distribution channels, including entering into new distribution channels to accelerate growth; geographical expansion; sales growth (to be determined as part of our annual budget); and enhancement of quality, healthcare and regulatory compliance programs.

 

11 

 

 

oBy way of example, our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors determined that the Personal Targets for the KPI-Based Annual Bonus for the fiscal year 2020 shall include the following criteria targets:

 

§Development of strategic plans;

 

§Cash management;

 

§Development of distribution channels;

 

§Geographical expansion;

 

§Sales growth; and

 

§Enhancement of quality, healthcare, and regulatory compliance programs.

 

·Consistent with our Compensation Policy, Mr. Glick will also be eligible for a special (discretionary) bonus of up to three (3) monthly salaries, subject to annual approval of our Board of Directors, following recommendation and approval of the Compensation Committee (the “Special Bonus”).

 

In approving this proposed modification to the cash bonus plan, our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors considered various factors, including the following:

 

üThe Importance of Mr. Glick’s Services to the Company. This element is demonstrated by Mr. Glick playing a key role in most aspects of our operations, starting from formulating our strategic vision, building a strong management and sales teams, and leading our strategic and financing activities.

 

üThe Contribution of Mr. Glick to Our Business and Success. Mr. Glick has contributed to our success, including by leading the Company's listing to Nasdaq and the recent $40 million public offering completed in February 2020, promoting various business development and research and development initiatives outlined by our Board of Directors and otherwise driving the Company's growth. The bonus plan is designed to further incentivize him to contribute to our success.

 

üAlignment of Interests. The bonus plan enhances the alignment of the interests of the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer with those of the Company’s shareholders. In particular, in order to incentivize him to drive the Company’s growth in the long-term, the KPI-Based Annual Bonus introduces new performance-based targets in line with the Company’s growth and strategic plans in addition to the revenue targets already part of the Revenue-Based Annual Bonus. The Special Bonus provides our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors an additional incentive tool that is more tailored to special circumstances or special achievements and contributions that are not necessarily foreseen at the commencement of the year.

 

üOur Compensation Policy. Our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors considered our Compensation Policy and other elements of compensation payable to Mr. Glick as well as factors set forth in the Companies Law.

 

12 

 

 

The Proposed Resolutions

 

It is proposed that at the Meeting, the following resolution be adopted:

 

“RESOLVED, that the proposed modification to our President and Chief Executive Officer’s bonus plan, as described in Item 3 of the Company's Proxy Statement for the 2020 Annual General Meeting, be, and the same hereby is, approved.”

 

Required Vote

 

Under the Companies Law, approval of this matter requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the shares present, in person or by proxy, and voting on the matter provided that, either (i) the shares voted in favor of such resolution include a majority of the shares voted by shareholders who are not “controlling shareholders” and do not have a "personal interest" in such matter (as such terms are defined in the Israeli Companies Law), or (ii) that the total number of shares voted by the disinterested shareholders described in clause (i) against such resolutions do not exceed two percent (2%) of the aggregate voting rights in the Company.

 

As of the date hereof, the Company has no controlling shareholder within the meaning of the Companies Law. However, Mr. Glick is deemed to have a personal interest in this matter.

 

The Companies Law requires that each shareholder voting on the proposed resolution indicate whether or not the shareholder is a controlling shareholder or has such a personal interest in the proposed resolution.

 

While it is unlikely that any of the Company’s public shareholders has a personal interest on this matter, the enclosed proxy card includes a box you can mark to confirm that you are not a controlling shareholder and do not have a personal interest in this matter. If you do not mark this box, your vote will not be counted. If you are unable to make this confirmation, please contact the Company's General Counsel and Company Secretary, at +972-4-617700 for instructions on how to vote your ordinary shares represented by your ADSs and indicate that you are a controlling shareholder or have a personal interest or, if you hold your ADSs in "street name," you may also contact the representative managing your account, who would then contact us on your behalf. Shareholders who hold their shares through banks, brokers or other nominees that are members of the TASE should indicate whether or not they are a controlling shareholder or have a personal interest on the form of voting card that we have filed via MAGNA (if voting manually) or on the electronic voting form (if voting electronically via MAGNA).

 

The Board recommends a vote FOR approval of the foregoing proposed resolution

 

ITEM 4

REAPPOINTMENT OF INDEPENDENT AUDITORS

(Item 4 on the Proxy Card)

 

Background

 

Somekh Chaikin, Certified Public Accountants (Israel), a member of KPMG International (“KPMG”) served as our auditors since 1997.

 

At the Meeting, our shareholders will be asked to approve the re-appointment of KPMG as our independent auditors for the year ending December 31, 2020 and until immediately following the next annual general meeting of shareholders, pursuant to the recommendation of our Audit Committee and Board of Directors.

 

KPMG has no relationship with us or with any of our affiliates except as auditors and, to a limited extent, as tax consultants and providers of some other audit related services. Our Audit Committee and Board of Directors believe that the independence of KPMG is not affected by such limited non-audit function and that, as a result of their familiarity with our operations and their reputation in the auditing field, they have the necessary personnel and professional qualifications to act as our auditors. At the Meeting, our shareholders will also be asked to authorize our Board of Directors to delegate to our Audit Committee the authority to fix the compensation of our independent auditors.

For information with respect to the aggregate fees for professional audit services and other services rendered by KPMG in 2019, see Item 16C of our Annual Report.

“RESOLVED, that the reappointment of KPMG as independent auditors of the Company for the year ending December 31, 2020 and until immediately following the next annual general meeting of shareholders be, and it hereby is, approved, and that the Board of Directors be, and it hereby is, authorized to delegate to the Audit Committee of the Board the authority to fix the remuneration of said independent auditors in accordance with the volume and nature of their services.”

 

Required Vote

 

The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the ordinary shares present, in person or by proxy (or, with regards only to ordinary shares held in TASE, by electronic voting), and voting on the matter, is required for the approval of the proposed resolution.

 

The Board recommends a vote FOR approval of the foregoing proposed resolution.
