|Share-based Compensation [Abstract]|
Note 6 – Share-Based Compensation
Under the 2003 Stock Incentive Plan (Plan), the Company may grant stock options, stock appreciation rights (SARs), non-vested stock and other types of share-based awards to executives and other management employees. Under the Plan, the Company may issue up to 13.1 million shares from treasury shares and from authorized, but unissued, shares of common stock. As of March 29, 2014, 1.6 million shares remained available for grant.
Stock Options and SARs
Between 2005 and 2012, the Company issued stock-settled SARs and has not issued any stock options since 2004. The Company has not issued SARs in 2014 or 2013. In the three months ended March 29, 2014 and March 30, 2013, there was $0.3 million and $1.3 million, respectively, of total expense after adjusting for forfeitures, due to amortization of SARs granted.
Non-vested stock awards
The Company grants both stock-settled and cash-settled non-vested stock units and awards to key employees as determined by the Human Resources and Compensation Committee. During the three months ended March 29, 2014 and March 30, 2013, the Company granted 0.3 million and 0.2 million stock awards, respectively. The Company recognizes the cost of non-vested stock units and awards on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period. Additionally, cash-settled non-vested stock units and awards are recorded as a liability in the balance sheet and adjusted to fair value each reporting period through stock compensation expense. See Note 5 – Fair Value Measurements for further discussion. During the three months ended March 29, 2014 and March 30, 2013, $2.2 million and $2.5 million, respectively, was charged to compensation expense for non-vested stock awards.
As of March 29, 2014, the Company had $14.5 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested share-based compensation arrangements. The Company expects this cost to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.6 years.
In both February 2014 and 2013, the Company granted 0.1 million performance shares to certain senior executives. The share awards are based on two performance measures--a cash flow return on investment (CFROI) measure and a total shareholder return (TSR) modifier. Target performance shares are earned based on a one-year CFROI performance period, commencing at the beginning of the calendar year of each grant. The performance shares earned from CFROI performance are then subject to a TSR modifier based on stock price performance measured against a predefined comparator group over a three-year performance period which starts at the beginning of the calendar year of each grant. Additionally, in February 2014 and 2013, the Company granted 24,600 and 26,000 performance shares, respectively, to non-executive officers and certain senior managers based solely on the CFROI measure utilizing the same one-year performance period mentioned above. Based on projections of probable attainment of the CFROI measure and the projected TSR modifier used to determine the performance awards, $1.6 million and $0.8 million, respectively, was charged to compensation expense for the three months ended March 29, 2014 and March 30, 2013.
The fair values of the senior executives' performance share award grants with a TSR modifier at the grant date in 2014 and 2013 were $41.38 and $35.93, respectively, which were estimated using the Monte Carlo valuation model, and incorporated the following assumptions:
(A) In 2014, the Company used an assumption of dividend reinvestment to value performance share grants.
The fair value of the non-executive officers and certain senior managers' performance awards granted based solely on the CFROI performance factor was $40.44 and $34.65, respectively, which was equal to the stock price on the date of grant in 2014 and 2013, respectively.
As of March 29, 2014, the Company had $6.4 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to performance awards. The Company expects this cost to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.3 years.
The Company issues stock awards to non-employee directors in accordance with the terms and conditions determined by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors. One-half of each director’s annual fee is paid in Brunswick common stock, the receipt of which may be deferred until a director retires from the Board of Directors. Each director may elect to have the remaining one-half paid in cash, in Brunswick common stock distributed at the time of the award, or in deferred Brunswick common stock units with a 20 percent premium.
