As part of the adoption of the 2017 Executive Incentive Plan, the Compensation Committee reviewed and recommended for Board approval, and the Board did approve, increases in the annual base salaries of Matthew G. Molchan, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer; Jeffry R. Keyes, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer and Corporate Secretary; Virgil J.

For each of Messrs. Molchan and Keyes, the amount of total cash bonus payable under the 2017 Executive Incentive Plan will be based on achievement of a target 2017 consolidated Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”) measure. For Mr. Lott, the amount of total cash bonus payable under the 2017 Executive Incentive Plan will be based on achievement of certain targets with specified weighting as follows: (a) 50% as to 2017 consolidated EBITDA; (b) 35% as to 2017 EBITDA measure associated with the Diagnostic Imaging business unit; and (c) 15% as to 2017 EBITDA measure of service activity associated with the Medical Device Sales and Service business unit. For Mr. Shirley, the amount of total cash bonus payable under the 2017 Executive Incentive Plan will be based on achievement of certain targets with specified weighting as follows: (a) 50% as to 2017 consolidated EBITDA; and (b) 50% as to 2017 EBITDA measure associated with the Diagnostic Services business unit. In order to be eligible for a minimum of 25% of the target bonus payout under the 2017 Executive Incentive Plan, the Company must achieve the minimum threshold objective of 90% of a target for consolidated EBITDA, calculated before impact of bonuses, subject to the other provisions of the 2017 Executive Incentive Plan. Each named executive officer may earn up to 175% of their target bonus based on achievement of their respective EBITDA measures.

The actual bonuses payable (if any) for the achievement of such objectives will be determined by the Compensation Committee, and will be payable upon the completion of the financial audit of the consolidated financial statements, but in any event not later than March 15, 2018, subject to each such named executive officer's employment through the date of payment.

The target bonus percentage for Messrs. Molchan and Keyes, as a percentage of base salary, decreased 36% and 12% from their previous levels of 90% and 60% of base compensation, respectively. Mr. Lott’s target bonus percentage, as a percentage of base salary, decreased 20% from the previous level of 50% of base compensation to 30% of base compensation. Mr. Shirley’s target bonus percentage, as a percentage of base salary, decreased 30% from the previous levels of 60% of base compensation to 30% of base compensation. The cash bonus targets for our named executive officers, pursuant to the 2017 Executive Incentive Plan, were approved by the Board after being reviewed by the Compensation Committee and recommended for Board approval.
