2010 Bonuses and 2011 Base Salaries

On January 20, 2011, the Compensation Committee (the Committee) of the Board of Directors (the Board) of Gilead Sciences, Inc. (the Company) set the base salaries for the 2011 fiscal year for the Company’s current named executive officers (the Executive Officers). The Committee also determined their bonus awards for the completed 2010 fiscal year based on their individual performance and the Company’s attained level of certain financial and non-financial objectives established for that year. The independent members of the Board ratified the 2010 bonus and 2011 base salary of John C. Martin, Ph.D., the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The approved 2010 bonuses and 2011 base salaries for the Executive Officers are as follows:

2011 Stock Option and Performance Shares Awards

On January 20, 2011, the Committee granted options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock and performance share awards to the Executive Officers under the Company’s 2004 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended. The independent members of the Board ratified the equity grants to Dr. Martin.

The options each have an exercise price per share of $38.17, representing the closing price of the Company’s common stock on January 20, 2011. The options will vest as to 25% of the underlying shares on the first anniversary of the date of grant, and the balance will vest in successive equal quarterly installments through the fourth anniversary of the date of grant, subject to such individual’s continued service with the Company through each applicable vesting date.

Each Executive Officer was also awarded a specific number of performance shares which will convert into actual shares of the Company’s common stock based on the Company’s attainment of certain performance goals measured over the three-year period beginning January 1, 2011 and ending December 31, 2013 and the individual’s continued service with the Company. The actual number of shares of the Company’s common stock into which the performance shares may convert will be calculated by multiplying the number of performance shares by a performance percentage ranging from 0% to 200% based on the attained level of Company performance as measured in terms of the following two performance criteria: (a) the Company’s total stockholder return (TSR) for the three-year performance period relative to the total stockholder return realized by the companies comprising the NYSE Arca Biotech Index and the NYSE Arca Pharmaceutical Index (together, the Peer Group Index) for that period and (b) the Company’s revenue growth relative to the Peer Group Index during the same three-year period.


The percentages in the table below represent the percentage of actual shares of the Company’s common stock into which the performance shares would convert at the end of the performance period based on the Company’s percentile rankings for both revenue growth and TSR relative to the Peer Group Index. For example, if the Company’s revenue growth for the period is at the 85th percentile relative to the Peer Group Index and TSR is at the 50th percentile relative to the Peer Group Index, the performance shares would convert into actual shares of common stock equal to 150% of the number of performance shares specified on the grant date. If the Company performance is at or above the 80th percentile of the Peer Group Index for both TSR and revenue growth for the performance period, the performance shares would convert into actual shares of common stock equal to 200% of the number of performance shares specified on the grant date, representing the maximum award opportunity. If the Company’s performance is below the 20th percentile of the Peer Group Index for both TSR and revenue growth for the performance period, then the performance shares would not convert into any actual shares of the Company’s common stock.

Company Revenue Growth vs. the Peer Group Index

Should the Executive Officer’s service with the Company terminate prior to the completion of the performance period, then his or her performance shares will be forfeited, whether or not the performance goals are met. However, if the Executive Officer’s employment terminates under the following circumstances during the performance period, he or she may subsequently become entitled to a portion of his or her performance shares upon the completion of the performance period:

(i) Should the Executive Officer cease service due to death or disability, then a portion of his or her performance shares would convert into actual shares of vested common stock based on the level at which the performance goals are actually attained for the performance period and the number of calendar months of continuous service he or she completed during that period.

(ii) Should the Executive Officer leave the Company’s employ prior to the completion of the performance period, but after completion of at least one year of service during the performance period, by reason of retirement on or after the date his or her combined age and years of service total 70 years or more, then a portion of his or her performance shares would convert into actual shares of vested common stock based on the level at which the performance goals are actually attained for the performance period and the number of calendar months of continuous service he or she completed during that period.

Should the Executive Officer remain in continued service through the closing of a change in control transaction, then his or her performance shares will immediately convert into vested shares of the Company’s common stock equal to 100% of the number of performance shares or, if the change in control occurs more than one year after the start of the performance period, any greater number of shares of common stock determined by measuring the Company’s TSR and revenue growth relative to the Peer Group Index over an abbreviated performance period ending with the Company’s last fiscal quarter prior to the effective date of the change in control.

An Executive Officer who is a U.S. resident may elect to defer the receipt of any shares of the Company’s common stock into which the performance shares may convert to a later date by submitting a deferral election form to the Company within certain specified time periods. In the absence of such deferral, the performance shares that vest upon the completion of the performance period will be issued on or before March 15, 2014.
