NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Six and Three Month Periods Ended June 30, 2008 and 2007
(unaudited)
NOTE 1: ORGANIZATION, BUSINESS, AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
     Description of company: Incorporated as a Delaware company in 1993, Coinstar, Inc. (the “Company”) is a multi-national company offering a range of 4th Wall™ solutions for retailers’ storefronts. Our services consist of self-service coin counting, entertainment services such as skill-crane machines, bulk vending machines and kiddie rides, self-service DVD kiosks where consumers can rent or purchase movies, money transfer services, and electronic payment (“E-payment”) services such as stored value cards, payroll cards, prepaid debit cards and prepaid wireless products via point-of-sale terminals and stored value kiosks. Our services, in one form or another, are offered in supermarkets, mass merchandisers, warehouse clubs, drugstores, universities, shopping malls and convenience stores in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Ireland, the United Kingdom and other countries. As of June 30, 2008, we had an approximate total of:
         
Coin-counting machines
    16,500  
Entertainment services machines
    160,000  
DVD kiosks
    9,600  
Money transfer services locations
    36,000  
E-payment point-of-sale terminals
    18,900  
E-payment enabled coin-counting kiosks
    10,900  
     Basis of presentation: The unaudited consolidated financial statements of the Company included herein reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly our consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.
     These financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such SEC rules and regulations. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited financial statements and the accompanying notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2007, filed with the SEC. The results of operations for the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any future quarter or for the entire fiscal year. Acquisitions are recorded and included in our results of operations as of the date acquired.
     Principles of consolidation: The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Coinstar, Inc., our wholly-owned subsidiaries and companies in which we have a controlling interest. Investments in companies of which we have influence, but not a controlling interest, are accounted for under equity method accounting. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
     In January 2008, we exercised our option to acquire a majority ownership interest in the voting equity of Redbox Automated Retail, LLC (“Redbox”) and our ownership interest increased from 47.3% to 51.0%. Since our initial investment in Redbox, we have accounted for our 47.3% ownership interest under the equity method in our Consolidated Financial Statements. Effective with the close of this transaction on January 18, 2008, we began consolidating Redbox’s financial results into our Consolidated Financial Statements.
     Use of estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. These judgments are difficult as matters that are inherently uncertain directly impact their valuation and accounting. Actual results may vary from management’s estimates and assumptions.

     Revenue recognition: We recognize revenue as follows:
    Coin-counting revenue is recognized at the time the consumers’ coins are counted by our coin-counting machines. Our revenue represents the fee charged for coin-counting;
 
    DVD revenue is recognized during the term of a customer’s rental transaction;
 
    Money transfer revenue represents the commissions earned on a money transfer transaction and is recognized at the time the customer completes the transaction;
 
    Entertainment revenue is recognized at the time cash is deposited in our machines. Cash deposited in the machines that has not yet been collected is referred to as cash in machine and is estimated at period end and reported on the balance sheet under the caption “Cash in machine or in transit”. This estimate is based on the average daily revenue per machine, multiplied by the number of days since the coin in the machine has been collected. The estimated value of our entertainment services coin-in-machine was approximately $4.3 million and $8.4 million at June 30, 2008 and December 31, 2007, respectively;
 
    E-payment revenue is recognized at the point of sale based on our commissions earned, net of retailer fees.
     Recent accounting pronouncements: In September 2006, the FASB issued FASB Statement No. 157, Fair Value Measures (“SFAS 157”), which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and enhances disclosures about fair value measures. Effective January 1, 2008, we implemented SFAS 157 for our financial assets and liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value at each reporting period. In accordance with the provisions of FSP No. FAS 157-2, Effective Date of FASB Statement No. 157, we elected to defer implementation of SFAS 157 related to our non-financial assets and non-financial liabilities that are recognized and disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a nonrecurring basis until January 1, 2009. We are currently reviewing this provision of SFAS 157 to determine the impact on our non-financial assets and liabilities that are recognized or disclosed at fair value on a nonrecurring basis.
     The adoption of SFAS 157 with respect to financial assets and liabilities that are re-measured and reported at fair value did not have a material impact on our financial results in the first half of 2008. SFAS No. 157 establishes a hierarchy that prioritizes fair value measurements based on the types of inputs used for the various valuation techniques. The levels of the hierarchy are described below:
    Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
 
    Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly; these include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active
 
    Level 3: Unobservable inputs that reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions
     The following table presents our financial assets that have been measured at fair value as of June 30, 2008 and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs utilized to determine such fair value.

        $ 2,517        
     In December 2007, the FASB issued FASB Statement No. 141 (revised 2007), Business Combinations (“SFAS 141R”). SFAS 141R retains the fundamental requirements of Statement No. 141 to account for all business combinations using the acquisition method (formerly the purchase method) and for an acquiring entity to be identified in all business combinations. However, the new standard requires the acquiring entity in a business combination to recognize all the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the transaction; establishes the acquisition-date fair value as the measurement objective for all assets acquired and liabilities assumed; and requires the acquirer to disclose the information needed to evaluate and understand the nature and financial effect of the business combination. SFAS 141R is effective for acquisitions made on or after the first day of annual periods beginning on or after December 15, 2008. We are currently reviewing the provisions of SFAS 141R to determine the impact to our Consolidated Financial Statements.

     In December 2007, the FASB issued FASB Statement No. 160, Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statements—An Amendment of ARB No. 51 (“SFAS 160”). SFAS 160 establishes new accounting and reporting standards for the noncontrolling interest in a subsidiary and for the deconsolidation of a subsidiary. SFAS 160 is effective for annual periods beginning on or after December 15, 2008. We are currently reviewing the provisions of SFAS 160 to determine the impact to our Consolidated Financial Statements.
     In March 2008, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 161, Disclosures about Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities (“SFAS 161”). SFAS 161 requires enhanced disclosures about how and why companies use derivatives, how derivative instruments and related hedged items are accounted for and how derivative instruments and related hedged items affect a company’s financial position, financial performance and cash flows. The provisions of SFAS 161 are effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after November 15, 2008. We are in the process of determining the impact the adoption of SFAS 161 will have on our financial statement disclosures.
     Contingency: In April 2007, we received a request for arbitration filed by ScanCoin AB (“ScanCoin”) before the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce regarding ownership of intellectual property related to an agreement between Coinstar and ScanCoin dated April 23, 1993. The parties have selected arbitrators, and we advanced partial payment for the arbitration. In August 2007, we received ScanCoin’s statement of claim and we responded with our statement of defense in November 2007. ScanCoin seeks a declaration of ownership of over 70 of our patents and patent applications related to our coin-counting machines, as well as monetary damages of approximately $8 million, plus interest. The arbitration is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2008. We believe that ScanCoin’s claims against us are without merit and intend to defend ourselves vigorously in this arbitration. In October 2007, we filed a claim in United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against ScanCoin North America alleging that it is infringing on a patent we own relating to self-service coin machines. ScanCoin North America has moved to stay the case pending resolution of the arbitration.
NOTE 2: ACQUISITIONS
Groupex
     On January 1, 2008, we acquired GroupEx Financial Corporation, JRJ Express Inc. and Kimeco, LLC (collectively, “GroupEx”), for an aggregate purchase price of $70.0 million. The purchase price included a $60.0 million cash payment (subject to a customary working capital adjustment) at closing. In addition, there is an additional payment of up to $10.0 million should certain performance conditions be met in the fifteen months following the closing. As of June 30, 2008, we believe this payout is probable as the performance conditions have been met. Further, we incurred an estimated $2.1 million in transaction costs, including legal, accounting, and other directly related charges. The total purchase price, net of cash acquired, was $45.3 million. The results of operations of GroupEx from January 1, 2008 are included in Coinstar’s Consolidated Statement of Operations.
     The acquisition was recorded under the purchase method of accounting and the purchase price was allocated based on the fair value of the assets acquired and the liabilities assumed.
     The total purchase price consideration consists of the following:
         
    (in thousands)  
Cash paid for acquisition of GroupEx
  $ 60,000  
Estimated additional payout
    10,000  
Estimated acquisition related costs
    2,100  
 
     
 
  $ 72,100  
 
     
     The total purchase consideration has been allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, including identifiable intangible assets, based on their respective fair values at the acquisition date. The accounting for the purchase price allocation is preliminary and is subject to possible adjustments in the future, based on our final analysis of certain liabilities. The following unaudited condensed balance sheet data presents the preliminary determination of the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed.

     Goodwill of $55.7 million, representing the excess of the purchase price paid over the fair value of the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired, will not be amortized, consistent with the guidance in FASB Statement No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets. An election pursuant to Internal Revenue Code Section 338(h)(10) is being made for tax purposes so the entire amount of intangibles and goodwill will be amortized and deducted over 15 years. Included in the liabilities assumed, is an estimated additional payment of $10.0 million which represents our best estimate that certain performance conditions as defined in the agreement, would be met in the fifteen months following the closing. As of June 30, 2008, we believe the estimated payout is probable as the performance conditions have been met and the payment will be made in 2009.
     We used forecasted future cash flows to estimate the fair value of the acquired intangible assets and a portion of the purchase price was allocated to the following identifiable intangible assets:

Redbox
     In January 2008, we exercised our option to acquire a majority ownership interest in the voting equity of Redbox and our ownership interest increased from 47.3% to 51.0%. Since our initial investment in Redbox, we have accounted for our 47.3% ownership interest under the equity method in our Consolidated Financial Statements. Effective with the close of this

transaction on January 18, 2008, we began consolidating Redbox’s financial results into our Consolidated Financial Statements.
     The total purchase price consideration consists of the following:
         
    (in thousands)  
Cash paid for the initial Redbox investment of 47.3% ownership in December 2005

     The acquisition was recorded under the purchase method of accounting and the purchase price was allocated based on the fair value of the assets acquired and the liabilities assumed to the extent of the 51% ownership interest acquired as of the various dates the payments were made under step acquisition accounting. The remaining 49% portion of acquired net assets represents the minority interest ownership in Redbox. The following unaudited condensed balance sheet presents assets and liabilities of Redbox, consolidated on January 18, 2008, resulting from our step acquisitions of Redbox.

     The calculation and recognition of goodwill is consistent with the step acquisition guidance in FASB Statement No. 141, Business Combination and ARB No. 51, Consolidated Financial Statement. Goodwill of $11.9 million represents primarily the excess of purchase paid over the fair of value of the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired, and is not amortized. The goodwill of $2.5 million recognized as a result of the additional ownership of 3.7% is expected to be deductible for tax purposes.
     We used forecasted future cash flows to estimate the fair value of Redbox intangible assets. Intangible assets of $1.9 million represent the internal-use software and customer relations acquired when payments were made under step acquisition accounting and are amortized over 5 years. The amortization expense for the six months ended June 30, 2008 was approximately $0.2 million. Based on intangible assets recorded as of June 30, 2008, and assuming no subsequent impairment of the underlying assets, the annual estimated amortization expense will be as follows:

NOTE 4: STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
     Stock-based compensation: Stock-based compensation is accounted for in accordance with the provisions of FASB Statement No. 123 (revised 2004), Share-Based Payment (“SFAS 123R”). Under SFAS 123R, the fair value of stock awards is estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes-Merton (“BSM”) option valuation model. Stock-based compensation expense is reduced for estimated forfeitures and is amortized over the vesting period.
     The following summarizes the weighted average valuation assumptions and grant date fair value of options granted during the periods shown below:
                                 
    Six Month Periods   Three Month Periods
    Ended June 30,   Ended June 30,
    2008   2007   2008   2007
Expected term (in years)
    3.7       3.7       3.7       3.7  
Expected stock price volatility
    35 %     41 %     35 %     41 %
Risk-free interest rate
    2.5 %     4.5 %     3.1 %     5.0 %
Expected dividend yield
    0 %     0 %     0 %     0 %
Estimated fair value per option granted
  $ 9.54     $ 11.11     $ 9.80     $ 11.75  
     The expected term of the options represents the estimated period of time from grant until exercise and is based on historical experience of similar awards, giving consideration to the contractual terms, vesting schedules and expectations of future employee behavior. Expected stock price volatility is based on historical volatility of our stock for a period at least equal to the expected term. The risk-free interest rate is based on the implied yield available on United States Treasury zero-coupon issues with an equivalent remaining term. We have not paid dividends in the past and do not plan to pay any dividends in the foreseeable future.

     As of June 30, 2008, total unrecognized stock-based compensation expense related to unvested stock options was approximately $7.7 million. This expense is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately 1.7 years. During the six month period ended June 30, 2008, the total intrinsic value of stock options exercised was approximately $5.5 million. At June 30, 2008, there were 4.8 million shares of unissued common stock reserved for issuance under all the stock plans of which 2.1 million shares were available for future grants.
     Restricted stock awards: Restricted stock awards are granted to certain employees and non-employee directors under the 1997 Plan and vest annually over 4 years and one year, respectively. The restricted shares require no payment from the grantee. The fair value of the awards is based on the market price on the grant date and is recorded on a straight-line basis over the vesting period.

awards was approximately $3.7 million. This expense is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately 1.6 years. During the six month period ended June 30, 2008, the total fair value of restricted stock awards vested was approximately $1.2 million.
NOTE 5: INCOME PER SHARE
     Basic net income per share is computed by dividing the net income available to common stockholders for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share is computed by dividing the net income for the period by the weighted average number of common and potential common shares outstanding (if dilutive) during the period. Potential common shares, composed of incremental common shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options and vesting of non-vested restricted stock awards, are included in the calculation of diluted net income per share to the extent such shares are dilutive.
     The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted net income per share for the periods indicated:
                                 
    Six Month Periods     Three Month Periods

     For the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008, options and restricted stock awards totaling approximately 845,000 and 769,000, respectively, shares of common stock were excluded from the computation of net income per common share because their impact would be antidilutive. For the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2007, options and restricted stock awards totaling approximately 783,000 and 822,000, respectively, shares of common stock were excluded from the computation of net income per common share because their impact would be antidilutive.
NOTE 6: BUSINESS SEGMENT INFORMATION
     FASB Statement No. 131, Disclosure about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information, requires that companies report, on an interim basis, separately in the financial statements certain financial and descriptive information about segment revenues, income and assets. The method for determining what information is reported is based on the way that management organizes the operating segments for making operational decisions and assessments of financial performance. Our chief operating decision maker is considered to be the Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”). We are currently organized into four reportable business segments: Coin and Entertainment services, E-payment services, Money transfer services and DVD services. Prior to January 1, 2008 we were organized into two reportable business segments: the North American business (which included the United States, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico) and the International business (which primarily included the United Kingdom as well as other European operations of our Constar Money Transfer subsidiary).
     The following table summarizes our revenue by segment for the periods indicated:

     Operating costs included in our shared service functions, which consist primarily of field operations, sales, finance, legal, human resources, and information technology, are allocated to our four segments. We will continually evaluate the shared service allocations for segment reporting purposes, which may result in changes to segment allocations in future periods. Because our field operations are fully integrated with our Coin and Entertainment services, our CEO allocates resources and evaluates Coin and Entertainment services results, as well as makes strategic decisions, on a combined basis. Therefore, our Coin and Entertainment services are one segment for reporting purposes. In addition, our CEO focuses on the segment profitability before depreciation and amortization when evaluating our segment performance. Stock-based compensation expense and depreciation and amortization expenses are not allocated to our four segments. As we changed our internal organization structure during the first quarter of 2008, resulting in the change of reportable segments, we did not restate the prior period under the new basis because it was not practical to do so.

NOTE 7: RELATED PARTY AND OTHER TRANSACTIONS
     During the second quarter of 2008, we entered into a settlement agreement with Incomm Holding, Inc. and certain of its affiliates (“Incomm”). As a result, we and Incomm have agreed to dissolve a related party of our E-payment subsidiary of which we own 49%. A previous liability owed to the related party was relieved. The net settlement, after attorney fees, was approximately $2.0 million of income.
     In the second quarter of 2008 we settled the proxy contest which resulted in one additional member to our Board of Directors, and one additional independent director to be added by March 1, 2009. Expenses related to this proxy contest, including the solicitation of stockholders, were approximately $4.1 million. We also incurred expenses associated with the write-off of in-process acquisition expenses of $1.0 million for due diligence and professional service costs in connection with acquisitions that were being considered in the past and for which discussions have now been terminated.

Overview
     We are a multi-national company offering a range of 4th Wall solutions for retailers’ storefronts. Our services consists of self-service coin counting, entertainment services such as skill-crane machines, bulk vending machines and kiddie rides, self-service DVD kiosks where consumers can rent or purchase movies, money transfer services, and electronic payment (“E-payment”) services such as stored value cards, payroll cards, prepaid debit cards and prepaid wireless products via point-of-sale terminals and stored value kiosks. Our services, in one form or another, are offered in supermarkets, mass merchandisers, warehouse clubs, drugstores, universities, shopping malls and convenience stores in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Ireland, the United Kingdom and other countries.
Coin and entertainment services
     We are the leader in the self-service coin-counting services market and are the leading owner and operator of skill-crane and bulk vending machines in the United States. We own and operate the only multi-national fully automated network of self-service coin-counting machines across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Ireland and in the United Kingdom. We estimate that at any one time, there is more than $10.5 billion worth of coin sitting idle in households in the United States. In 2007, consumers processed more than $2.9 billion worth of coin through our coin-counting machines.
     We own and service all of our coin-counting and entertainment services machines, providing a convenient and trouble free service to retailers. Coin-counting revenues are generated through transaction fees from our customers and business partners. Consumers feed loose change into the machines, which count the change and then dispense vouchers or, in some cases, issue e-payment products, at the consumer’s election. Each voucher lists the dollar value of coins counted, less our transaction fee, which is typically 8.9% of the value of coins counted. In certain cases when our e-payment product is issued instead of a voucher, the consumer does not pay a fee.
     Since inception, our coin-counting machines have counted and processed more than 368 billion coins worth more than $20.0 billion in more than 542 million self-service coin-counting transactions. We own and operate more than 16,500 coin-counting machines in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Ireland and the United Kingdom (approximately 10,900 of which are E-payment enabled).
     Our entertainment services machines consist primarily of skill-crane machines, bulk vending and kiddie rides, which are installed in more than 20,000 retail locations, totaling more than 160,000 pieces of equipment. We generate revenue from money deposited in our machines that dispense plush toys, novelties and other items.
DVD services
     Through our acquisition of DVDXpress and our majority ownership interest in Redbox, we offer self-service DVD rentals through 9,600 kiosks where consumers can rent or purchase movies. Our DVD kiosks supply all the functionality of a traditional video rental store, yet occupy an area of less than ten square feet. Consumers use a touch screen to select their DVD, swipe a valid credit or debit card, and go. The process is designed to be fast, efficient and fully automated with no upfront or membership fees. Typically, the DVD rental price is a flat fee plus tax for one night and if the consumer chooses to keep the DVD for additional nights, they are automatically charged for the fee. Our DVD kiosks are available in all states in the continental United States, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom and offer our consumers with a more convenient home entertainment solution. We generate revenue primarily through fees charged to rent or purchase a DVD, and pay our retail partners a percentage of our revenues.

Money transfer services
     Through our acquisitions of Coinstar Money Transfer (“CMT”) and GroupEx Financial Corporation, JRJ Express Inc. and Kimeco, LLC (collectively, “GroupEx”) we offer money transfer services primarily in the United Kingdom, European countries, North America, and Central America. Our money transfer services provide an easy to use, reliable and cost effective way to send money around the world; it has become one of the leading independent providers of electronic money transfer services, with over 36,000 locations and operations in over 140 countries worldwide. Our services are specially suited for individuals away from home who need to send money to their family and friends or to manage their personal finances.
E-payment services
     We offer E-payment services, including activating and reloading value on prepaid wireless accounts, selling stored value cards, loading and reloading prepaid debit cards and prepaid phone cards, prepaid phones and providing payroll card services. We believe these and other E-payment services represent a significant growth opportunity for us. We offer various E-payment services in the United States and the United Kingdom through 18,900 point-of-sale terminals, 400 stand-alone E-payment kiosks and 10,900 E-payment-enabled coin-counting machines in supermarkets, drugstores, universities, shopping malls and convenience stores.
     We have relationships with national wireless carriers, such as Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, Virgin Mobile and AT&T. We generate revenue primarily through commissions or fees charged per E-payment transaction and pay our retailers a fee based on commissions earned on the sales of E-payment services.
Strategy
     Our strategy, embodied in our 4th Wall concept, is based on cross-selling our full range of products and services to our retailers. In addition, we believe that we will continue to increase operating efficiencies by combining and concentrating our products and services in our retailers’ storefront.
     In addition, we expect to continue devoting significant resources to building our sales organization in connection with our 4th Wall cross-selling strategy, adding administrative and compliance personnel to support our growing organization and developing the information technology systems and technology infrastructure necessary to support our products and services. We expect to continue evaluating new marketing and promotional programs to increase consumer utilization of our services.

     Our coin revenues increased in the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008 compared to the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2007 as a result of an increase in the number of transactions, an increase in the number of coin-counting machines, and the volume of coins processed by our coin-counting machines. The total dollar value of coins processed through our network for the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008 was approximately $1.4 billion and $732 million, compared to $1.3 billion and $710 million, respectively, for the six and three month period ended June 30, 2007. The installed base of coin-counting machines increased to approximately 16,500 at June 30, 2008, from approximately 14,200 at June 30, 2007.
     Our entertainment revenues decreased for the six and three month period ended June 30, 2008 compared to the six and three month period ended June 30, 2007 primarily as a result of a reduced number of machines installed in Walmart locations and our decision to resign lower performing accounts, decreased foot traffic at our retailers’ locations, softness of the economy, increased fuel prices, and a deflated housing market. While we are watching these trends closely, we believe macro-economic issues will continue to negatively affect retailer foot traffic for the foreseeable future. The installed base of

Table of Contents

entertainment machines decreased to approximately 160,000 at June 30, 2008, from approximately 297,000 at June 30, 2007 primarily due to our agreement with Wal-Mart to significantly expand our installed coin-counting and DVD machines while reducing our installed entertainment machines. In addition, we are also reducing our installed base as a result of strategic decisions to resign from lower performing accounts.
     Our DVD revenues increased in the six and three month period ended June 30, 2008 compared to the six and three month period ended June 30, 2007 primarily as a result of our increased ownership percentage of Redbox, which, as a result required the consolidation of Redbox’s results from the effective date of January 18, 2008. Revenue for Redbox for the period from January 18 to June 30, 2008 was $144.7 million and $86.9 million for the second quarter of 2008. In the first half and the second quarter of 2008, we had approximately 2,600 and 1,700 net installs, respectively. In addition, solid unit economics, strong movie titles, a television writers strike early in the year, and the counter-cyclical nature of DVD rentals to the economy contributed a better than expected performance.
     Our Money transfer revenues increased in the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008 compared to the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2007 primarily as a result of the acquisition of GroupEx effective January 1, 2008, an increase in the number of money transfer transactions, and an increase in the average amount per transaction. Revenues for GroupEx for the six and three month period ended June 30, 2008 was $27.6 million and $15.0 million, respectively. The remaining increase in money transfer revenues is due to organic growth.
     Our E-payment revenues increased in the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008 compared to the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2007 as a result of an increase in the amount of transactions and the number of locations offering our E-payment services from the prior year periods.
Direct Operating Expenses
     Our direct operating expenses consist primarily of the cost of (1) the percentage of transaction fees and commissions we pay to our retailers and agents, (2) coin pick-up, transportation and processing expenses, (3) the cost of plush toys and other products dispensed from the skill-crane and bulk-vending machines, (4) field operations support and (5) the amortized cost of our DVD inventory. Variations in the percentage of transaction fees we pay to our retailers and agents may result in increased expenses. Such variations are based on our evaluation of certain factors, such as total revenue, E-payment capabilities, long-term non-cancelable contracts, installation of our machines in high traffic and/or urban or rural locations, new product commitments, co-op marketing incentive, or other criteria.

     Direct operating expenses increased in the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008 compared to the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2007 primarily as a result of the consolidation of Redbox’s results, which runs at a higher direct operating costs percentage than our historical business, our acquisition of GroupEx in January, increased freight and handling costs and increased transportation costs due to rising fuel prices. The increase in direct operating expenses for DVD and Money Transfer were $98.0 million and $28.9 million, respectively, for the six month period ended June 30, 2008, and $58.7 million and $15.7 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2008. This increase was offset by the decrease from our Coin and Entertainment direct operating expenses in the amount of $28.0 million and $15.7 million for the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008. This decrease was primarily related to our agreement with Wal-Mart to significantly expand our installed coin-counting and DVD machines while reducing our installed entertainment machines. The remaining increase was from our E-payment services due to the increase in revenues as the majority of E-payment expenses are variable in nature.
Marketing
     Our marketing expenses represent our cost of advertising, marketing and public relation efforts in national and regional advertising and the major international markets in which we operate our Money transfer services. For example, we have been using advertising to introduce e-payment features on our coin-counting machines and other e-payment product channels such as our stored value card offerings. This directed marketing and advertising approach, which we expect to continue through 2008, continues driving increased trial and repeat use of both our coin services offerings and e-payment products.

The marketing spending for our other services have remained relatively flat compared to the prior year.
Research and Development
     Our research and development expenses consist primarily of development costs of our coin-counting machine software, network applications, machine improvements and new product development. Research and development expenses represent expenditures to support development and design of our complementary new product ideas and to continue our ongoing efforts to enhance our existing products and services, primarily our coin-counting system.

General and administrative expenses increased for DVD and Money Transfer by $13.6 million and $2.5 million, respectively, for the six month period ended June 30, 2008, and $8.1 million and $1.6 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2008. The remaining increase was mainly from additional costs of corporate shared resources due to compliance as a result of additional legal cost and growth of the company.
Proxy, write-off of acquisition costs, and litigation settlement
     During the second quarter of 2008 there were unique events resulting in expenses for a proxy contest and the write-off of acquisition costs as well as income from the litigation settlement agreement with InComm Holding Inc.

    We settled the proxy contest which resulted in one additional member to our Board of Directors and one additional independent director to be added by March 1, 2009. Expenses related to this proxy contest, including the solicitation of stockholders, were approximately $4.1 million.
 
    We incurred expenses associated with the write-off of in-process acquisition expenses of $1.0 million for due diligence and professional service costs in connection with acquisitions that were being considered in the past and discussions have now been terminated.
 
    We entered into a settlement agreement with Incomm Holding, Inc. and certain of its affiliates (“Incomm”). As a result, we and Incomm have agreed to dissolve a related party of our E-payment subsidiary of which we own 49%. A previous liability owed to the related party was relieved.

Depreciation and Other
     Our depreciation and other expenses consist primarily of depreciation charges on our installed service machines as well as on computer equipment and leased automobiles.

     Depreciation and other expenses increased in the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008 compared to the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2007 primarily as a result of the consolidation of Redbox’s results and our acquisition of GroupEx in January 2008. Depreciation and other expenses for Redbox were $11.0 million and $6.6 million for the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008, respectively. Depreciation and other expenses for GroupEx were $0.4 million and $0.2 million, respectively, for the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008, respectively. The increase of depreciation and other expenses from the acquisitions were offset by the decrease in our Coin and Entertainment services in the amount of $5.6 million and $3.1 million for the six and three month periods, primarily due to the write-off of fixed assets in connection with our asset impairment charge in the fourth quarter of 2007. The remaining increases were from our E-payment services and Money Transfer service due to the increase in installed base of the machines.
Amortization of Intangible Assets
     Our amortization expense consists of amortization of intangible assets, which are mainly comprised of the value assigned to our acquired retailer relationships and, to a lesser extent, internally developed software.

     Interest expense increased in the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2008 as compared to the six and three month periods ended June 30, 2007 primarily due to higher outstanding debt balances.

     The income tax provision for the six month periods ended June 30, 2008 and 2007 reflects an effective tax rate of 48.6% and 46.9%, respectively. These rates differ from the federal statutory rate primarily due to the effect of U.S. state taxes and losses in the United Kingdom that do not provide tax benefits currently. The effective rate also includes implications from the application of SFAS 123R with respect to incentive stock options.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Cash and Liquidity
     Our business involves collecting and processing large volumes of cash, most of it in the form of coins. We present three categories of cash on our balance sheet: cash and cash equivalents, cash in machine or in transit, and cash being processed.
     As of June 30, 2008, we had cash and cash equivalents, cash in machine or in transit, and cash being processed totaling $222.3 million. This consisted of cash and cash equivalents immediately available to fund our operations of $56.0 million, cash in machine or in transit of $35.4 million and cash being processed of $130.9 million (which relates to our partner payable liability and payable to our money transfer agents as recorded in “accrued payable to retailers and agents” in the Consolidated Balance Sheet). Working capital was $63.7 million as of June 30, 2008, compared with $104.7 million as of December 31, 2007. The decrease in working capital was primarily the result of our acquisition of GroupEx and our increased ownership percentage of Redbox, which, as a result required the consolidation of Redbox’s results from the effective date of January 18, 2008. In addition, the decrease is due to the timing of payments to our vendors and retailers.
     Net cash provided by operating activities was $61.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008, compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $27.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2007. Cash provided by operating activities increased primarily as a result of an increase in income net of non-cash transactions on our Consolidated Statement of Operations of $22.3 million. The increase of $22.3 million resulted mostly from increases in depreciation and other, amortization, deferred income taxes, write-off of acquisition costs, and minority interest of $7.4 million resulting from the acquisition of Redbox. In addition, cash used by our operating assets and liabilities of $5.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008 decreased compared to cash used by operating assets and liabilities of $17.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2007. Cash used by our operating assets and liabilities decreased mainly due to the timing of payments to our retailers and the collection of our telecommunication fee refund that was recorded in 2007 but not collected until 2008.
     Net cash used by investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2008 was $95.7 million compared to $52.1 million in the comparable prior year period. Net cash used by investing activities consisted primarily of capital expenditures and the acquisitions of GroupEx and Redbox in January 2008. The increase in capital expenditures year-over-year is primarily a result of the installation of coin and DVD machines, upgrades to our machines, and other corporate infrastructure costs.
     Net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended June 30, 2008 was $57.7 million compared to cash provided of $3.3 million in the comparable prior year period. In 2008, net cash provided by financing activities represented the borrowings on our credit facility of $254.5 million, proceeds of employee stock option exercises of $8.1 million, and the excess tax benefit from exercise of stock options of $0.5 million, offset by cash used to make principal payments on debt of $205.4 million. Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2007, was $3.3 million. This amount represented cash used to make a scheduled principal payment of $1.0 million on our term loan, our capital lease payments of $3.7 million and repurchase of our common stock of $3.5 million, offset by net proceeds from the exercise of stock options of $2.7 million, additional borrowings on our credit facility of $7.0 million, and the excess tax benefit from exercise of stock options of $1.8 million.
Credit Facility
     On November 20, 2007, we entered into a senior secured revolving line of credit facility, which replaced a prior credit facility, providing advances up to $400.0 million for (i) revolving loans, (ii) swingline advances subject to a sublimit of $25.0

22


Table of Contents

million, and (iii) the issuance of letters of credit in our behalf subject to a sublimit of $50.0 million. We may, subject to applicable conditions, request an increase in the revolving line of credit facility up to an aggregate of an additional $50.0 million. Fees for this facility of approximately $1.7 million are being amortized over the 5-year life of the revolving line of credit facility. We amortize deferred financing fees on a straight-line basis which approximates the effective interest method. The credit facility matures on November 20, 2012, at which time all outstanding borrowings must be repaid and all outstanding letters of credit must have been cash collateralized. Our obligations under the revolving line of credit facility are secured by a first priority security interest in substantially all of our assets and the assets of our domestic subsidiaries, as well as a pledge of a substantial portion of our subsidiaries’ capital stock. As of June 30, 2008, our outstanding revolving line of credit balance was $314.0 million.
     During the first quarter of 2008, we entered into an interest rate swap agreement with Wells Fargo bank for a notional amount of $150 million to hedge against the potential impact on earnings from the increase in market interest rates associated with the interest payments on our variable-rate revolving credit facility. Under the interest rate swap agreement, we receive or make payments on a quarterly basis, based on the differential between a specific interest rate and three-month LIBOR. This interest rate swap is accounted for as a cash flow hedge in accordance with FAS No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities. As of June 30, 2008, the change in the fair value of the swap, which was $2.5 million, was recorded in other comprehensive income, net of tax of $1.2 million, with the corresponding adjustment to the other current asset in our consolidated financial statements. The swap will mature on March 20, 2011.
     Subject to applicable conditions, we may elect interest rates on our revolving borrowings calculated by reference to (i) the British Bankers Association LIBOR rate (the “BBA LIBOR Rate”) fixed for given interest periods or (ii) Bank of America’s prime rate (or, if greater, the average rate on overnight federal funds plus one half of one percent) (the “Base Rate”), plus a margin determined by our consolidated leverage ratio. For swing line borrowings, we will pay interest at the Base Rate, plus a margin determined by our consolidated leverage ratio. For borrowings made with the BBA LIBOR Rate, the margin ranges from 75 to 175 basis points, while for borrowings made with the Base Rate, the margin ranges from 0 to 50 basis points. As of June 30, 2008, our weighted average interest rate on the revolving line of credit facility was 4.1%.
     The credit facility contains standard negative covenants and restrictions on actions including, without limitation, restrictions on indebtedness, liens, fundamental changes or dispositions of our assets, payments of dividends or common stock repurchases, capital expenditures, investments, and mergers, dispositions and acquisitions, among other restrictions. In addition, the credit agreement requires that we meet certain financial covenants, ratios and tests, including maintaining a maximum consolidated leverage ratio and a minimum interest coverage ratio, as defined in the credit agreement. As of June 30, 2008, we were in compliance with all covenants.
     As of June 30, 2008, we had five irrevocable standby letters of credit that totaled $11.9 million. These standby letters of credit, which expire at various times through December 2008, are used to collateralize certain obligations to third parties. Prior to and as of June 30, 2008, no amounts have been, or are outstanding under these standby letters of credit.
     We believe our existing cash, cash equivalents and amounts available to us under our credit facility will be sufficient to fund our cash requirements and capital expenditure needs for at least the next 12 months. After that time, the extent of additional financing needed, if any, will depend on the success of our business. If we significantly increase installations beyond planned levels or if coin-counting machine volumes generated or entertainment services machine plays are lower than historical levels, our cash needs may increase. Furthermore, our future capital requirements will depend on a number of factors, including cash required by future acquisitions, consumer use of our services, the timing and number of machine installations, the number of available installable machines, the type and scope of service enhancements and the cost of developing potential new product and service offerings and enhancements.
Redbox Debt
     As of June 30, 2008, included in our consolidated financial statements was debt associated with Redbox totaling $36.8 million, of which $11.3 million was a promissory note owed to GetAMovie, Inc. (“GAM”), a third party vendor, and $25.5 million related to a Rollout Purchase, License and Service Agreement (“the Rollout Agreement”) with McDonald’s USA. This debt is not contractually guaranteed by Coinstar, Inc.
     In May 2007, Redbox entered into the individual promissory note agreement with GAM. The promissory note provided Redbox with $10.0 million and carried an effective interest rate of 11.0% per year. Accrued interest of $1.3 million at June 30, 2008 becomes payable to GAM on May 1, 2009, and thereafter, will be paid quarterly, in arrears, with a final payment consisting of the principal and any accrued interest on May 1, 2010.
     In November 2006, Redbox and McDonald’s USA entered into the Rollout agreement for which they subsequently received proceeds. The proceeds under the Rollout agreement are classified as debt and the interest rate is based on similar rates that Redbox has with its kiosk sale-leaseback transactions. Future payments made to McDonald’s USA over the contractual term of the agreement, which is 5 years, will reduce the accrued interest liability and principal.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
     As of June 30, 2008, off-balance sheet arrangements are comprised of our operating leases and letters of credit as disclosed in Note 8 to our Consolidated Financial Statements included in our Fiscal 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K. We have no other off-balance sheet arrangements that have had or are reasonably likely to have a material current or future effect on our financial condition or consolidated financial statements.
Contractual Obligations
     There have been no material changes during the period covered by this report, outside of the ordinary course of our business, to the contractual obligations specified in the table of contractual obligations included in the section “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” included in our Fiscal 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K with the exception of $25.9 million in total capital lease obligations and $36.8 million in total debt obligations for Redbox.

Seasonality
     We have historically experienced seasonality in our revenues with higher revenues in the second half of the year than in the first half of the year. Our Coin services generally experiences its highest revenues in the third calendar quarter, followed by the fourth calendar quarter, and relatively lower revenues in the first half of the year. Our Money Transfer and E-payment services generally provide its highest revenue in the fourth quarter. Our DVD services generate lower revenues in the second quarter due in part to improved weather and daylight saving time. We have not experienced significant seasonality in our entertainment services. We expect our results of operations will continue to fluctuate as a result of seasonal fluctuations and our revenue mix between relatively higher margin Coin and Entertainment and DVD services, and relatively lower margin E-payment and Money Transfer services.

Critical Accounting Policies
     Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Preparation of these statements requires management to make judgments and estimates. We base our estimates on historical experience and on other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the present circumstances. A summary of significant accounting policies and a description of accounting policies that are considered critical may be found in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2007 at Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”. There have been no material changes to the critical accounting policies previously disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2007.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk
     The following discussion about our market risk involves forward-looking statements. Actual results could differ from those projected in our forward-looking statements.
     We are subject to the risk of fluctuating interest rates in the normal course of business, primarily as a result of our credit agreement with a syndicate of lenders led by Bank of America, N.A. and investment activities that generally bear interest at variable rates. Because our investments have maturities of three months or less, and our credit facility interest rates are based upon either the LIBOR, prime rate or base rate plus an applicable margin, we believe that the risk of material loss is low and that the carrying amount of these balances approximates fair value.
     Based on our outstanding revolving line of credit obligations of $314.0 million as of June 30, 2008, an increase of 1.0% in interest rates over the next year would increase our annualized interest expense by approximately $1.6 million, net of a $1.5 million offset resulting from our interest rate swap agreement; a decrease of 1.0% in interest rates over the next year would decrease our annualized interest expense by approximately $1.6 million, net of a $1.5 million offset resulting from our interest rate swap agreement. Such potential increases or decreases are based on certain simplified assumptions, including an immediate, across-the-board increase or decrease in the level of interest rates with no other subsequent changes for the remainder of the periods. In 2008, we have hedged a portion of our interest rate risk by entering into an interest rate swap with a notional amount of $150 million. This interest rate swap converts a portion of our variable 3-month LIBOR rate financing into a fixed interest rate financing. This fixed interest rate swap reduces the effect of fluctuations in the market interest rates. The agreement matures on March 20, 2011.
     We are further subject to the risk of foreign exchange rate fluctuation in the normal course of business as a result of our operations in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Europe, Canada and Mexico.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
     We maintain a set of disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)). Management, with the participation of our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report and has determined that such disclosure controls and procedures are effective.
     We also maintain a system of internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act). No changes in our internal control over financial reporting occurred during the quarter ended June 30, 2008, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings
     In April 2007, we received a request for arbitration filed by ScanCoin AB (“ScanCoin”) before the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce regarding ownership of intellectual property related to an agreement between Coinstar and ScanCoin dated April 23, 1993. The parties have selected arbitrators, and we advanced partial payment for the arbitration. In August 2007, we received ScanCoin’s statement of claim and we responded with our statement of defense in November 2007. ScanCoin seeks a declaration of ownership of over 70 of our patents and patent applications related to our coin-counting machines, as well as monetary damages of approximately $8 million, plus interest. The arbitration is scheduled for November 2008. We believe that ScanCoin’s claims against us are without merit and intend to defend ourselves

vigorously in this arbitration. In October 2007, we filed a claim in United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against ScanCoin North America alleging that it is infringing on a patent we own relating to self-service coin machines. ScanCoin North America has moved to stay the case pending resolution of the arbitration.
Item 1A. Risk Factors
     There have been no material changes from risk factors previously disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2007 and our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2008.
Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds
     Under the terms of our credit facility, we are permitted to repurchase up to (i) $25.0 million of our common stock plus (ii) proceeds received after November 20, 2007, from the issuance of new shares of capital stock under our employee equity compensation plans. Subsequent to November 20, 2007 and as of June 30, 2008, the authorized cumulative proceeds received from option exercises or other equity purchases under our equity compensation plans totaled $8.7 million bringing the total authorized for purchase under our credit facility to $33.7 million. After taking into consideration our share repurchases of $6.5 million subsequent to November 20, 2007, the remaining amount authorized for repurchase under our credit facility is $27.2 million as of June 30, 2008, however we will not exceed our repurchase limit authorized by the board of directors as outlined below.
     Apart from our credit facility limitations, our board of directors authorized the repurchase of up to $22.5 million of our common stock plus additional shares equal to the aggregate amount of net proceeds received after January 1, 2003, from our employee equity compensation plans. As of June 30, 2008, this authorization allows us to repurchase up to $23.4 million of our common stock.
Item 4. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

Item 5. Other Information
     In May 2008, Coinstar announced it will commence prior to the end of 2008 a director selection process pursuant to which Coinstar will increase the size of its Board of Directors by one member and, to fill that vacancy, appoint an independent director selected by the Board no later than March 1, 2009.
     Coinstar will solicit its major stockholders for submissions of, and input regarding, candidates to be considered for nomination as a new independent director on the Board. The Nominating and Governance Committee, which is comprised solely of independent directors, will review the resumes and qualifications of all candidates submitted for nomination. The Nominating and Governance Committee will consider, among other things, the director candidates’ overall qualifications and background, as well as any specialized experience serving as an independent director of a public company or having executive or board positions in the chain retail store environment, other significant areas of Coinstar’s customer base, electronic money transfer, or other businesses that are part of, or complementary with, the 4th Wall businesses. The Nominating and Governance Committee will select one person from the pool of candidates who will be presented to the Board for consideration for appointment as a new independent director.

Table of Contents

     The Board will evaluate the person selected for appointment and, taking into consideration the recommendation of the Nominating and Governance Committee, either appoint the person to the Board or direct the Nominating and Governance Committee to identify another candidate from the same pool submitted by the major stockholders. The Board shall nominate and support the new independent director for re-election to the Board at the 2009 Annual Meeting as a director whose term shall expire at the 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (or if Coinstar destaggers the Board at any time prior to the 2012 Annual Meeting, it shall include the new director in its slate of nominees at every meeting of stockholders at which directors are elected prior to the 2012 Annual Meeting).

Exhibit 10.5
2008 INCENTIVE COMPENSATION PLAN
The 2008 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Plan”) is a cash bonus plan in which the management team of Coinstar, Inc. (the “Company”), including the Company’s executive officers, are eligible to participate. The Plan provides discretionary cash bonuses based on the achievement of goals relating to the performance of the Company, the management team’s performance and individual performance. The performance period for the Plan is January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2008 (the “Performance Period”).
The Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Compensation Committee”) administers the Plan. The Compensation Committee, in its sole discretion, selects the individuals who will participate in the Plan and the actual bonus (if any) payable to each participant. The target bonus for each participant is determined as a percentage of such participant’s base salary, ranging from 20% to 60%, as determined by the Compensation Committee in its sole discretion (the “Target Bonus”).
Payout under the Plan will be determined as follows:
1. Seventy percent (70%) will be based on the Compensation Committee’s discretion after evaluating the Company’s achievement of the following performance measures:
                 
Performance Measure   Minimum Goal Range   Weighting
Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA)
  $ 135M-$145M       35 %
Revenue
  $ 800M-$850M       35 %
Coin Machine Installations
    1,250-1,750       7.5 %
DVD Machine Installations
    3,500-4,500       7.5 %
Cross-Selling (selling a different product line to an existing Company customer as evidenced by a signed contract)
    3,000-7,000       15 %
In the sole discretion of the Compensation Committee, once the minimum of the range is achieved for a particular performance measure, participants under the Plan may receive between 0% and 200% of the portion of the Target Bonus applicable to that performance measure, based on the applicable weighting for that performance measure.
The minimum goal ranges above exclude the effects of any acquisitions completed during the Performance Period and will be adjusted for any divestitures for the Performance

 


 

Period. Redbox results will be included for the full Performance Period whether it is consolidated or not.
2. Thirty percent (30%) will be based on the Compensation Committee’s discretion after evaluating the management team’s and/or individual performance for the entire year, based on any criteria that the Compensation Committee determines to be appropriate in its sole discretion. The Company’s Chief Executive Officer will make recommendations to the Compensation Committee regarding individual bonuses under this component (with the exception of the Chief Executive Officer bonus) based on a review of individual performance. The Compensation Committee will then review and approve all individual bonuses. Participants under the Plan may receive between 0% and 200% of the portion of the Target Bonus applicable to this component.
The Compensation Committee may, in its sole discretion, make adjustments to the payouts under the Plan as a result of extraordinary events and/or conditions that either positively or negatively impact the Company’s performance.
Unless specifically provided otherwise in a written agreement between the Company and a participant, a participant must be continuously employed by the Company from January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008 to be eligible for payment under this Plan. A participant hired after January 1, 2008 and employed through December 31, 2008 may receive a pro-rated bonus payment. A participant who meets these eligibility requirements will be eligible to receive a bonus, even if the participant is not employed by the Company on the date the bonus payment is made. Payment of each bonus will be made as soon as practicable after the end of the Performance Period. Bonuses will be paid in cash in a single lump sum, subject to payroll taxes and tax withholding.
Each bonus that may become payable under the Plan will be paid solely from the general assets of the Company. Nothing in the Plan should be construed to create a trust or to establish or evidence any participant’s claim of any right to payment of a bonus other than as an unsecured general creditor with respect to any payment to which a participant may be entitled.
No participant will have any claim to a bonus under the Plan, and the Compensation Committee will have no obligation for uniformity of treatment of participants under the Plan. Furthermore, nothing in the Plan will be deemed to limit in any way the Compensation Committee’s full discretion to determine whether to grant any bonuses hereunder.
The Compensation Committee reserves the right to unilaterally amend, modify or terminate the Plan at any time, including amending the Plan as it deems necessary or desirable to avoid adverse tax consequences under Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
