Broadcom Ltd. (AVGO) filed a Form 8K – Director, Officer or Compensation Filing – with the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission on December 06, 2017.

(d) On December 4, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) appointed Gayla J. Delly as an independent director of the Company, and a member of each of the Board’s Audit Committee and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.

Ms. Delly served as Chief Executive Officer of Benchmark Electronics Inc., a company that provides contract manufacturing, design, engineering, test and distribution services to manufacturers of computers, medical devices, telecommunications equipment and industrial control and test instruments, from January 2012 to September 2016. At Benchmark Electronics Inc., she previously served as President from 2006 to December 2011, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer from 2001 to 2006, and as Corporate Controller and Treasurer from 1995 to 2001. Ms. Delly is a certified public accountant and was a senior audit manager at KPMG before joining Benchmark. Ms. Delly serves as an independent director of Flowserve Corporation, a public company listed on the New York Stock Exchange, and serves as chair of Flowserve’s audit committee and a member of its corporate governance and nominating committee. Ms. Delly’s qualifications to serve on the Board include her leadership experience in senior executive and financial management positions, her international manufacturing experience, her education and experience as an accounting professional, and her experience serving as a director of other public companies.

Ms. Delly will participate in the non-employee director compensation arrangements generally applicable to all of the Company’s non-employee directors. Under the terms of those arrangements, as currently in effect, Ms. Delly received an initial restricted share unit award with a value of $66,558 on December 4, 2017, her first date of service as a director, which will vest in full on the earlier of (i) the first anniversary of the grant date and (ii) the date on which the annual general meeting of Company shareholders immediately following the grant date is held, subject to Ms. Delly’s continuing service on the vesting date. The number of shares subject to this award was determined by dividing the value of the award by the average of the Company’s per share closing market prices, as quoted on the Nasdaq Global Select Market, over the 30 calendar days immediately preceding December 4, 2017. In addition, Ms. Delly will be entitled to receive the annual cash and equity compensation payable to other independent, non-employee directors of the Company. The cash and equity compensation currently payable to our non-employee directors is as set forth in the Company’s proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 17, 2017.

(e) On December 5, 2017, the Board approved the Company’s Fiscal Year 2018 Annual Performance Bonus Plan for Executive Employees (the “Plan”), which is the Company’s performance-based annual cash incentive bonus plan for its executive management employees for its fiscal year ending November 4, 2018. The terms of the Plan are substantially the same as the Fiscal Year 2017 Annual Performance Bonus Plan for Executive Employees, adopted in respect of the Company’s fiscal year ended October 29, 2017, other than with regard to the applicable annual performance metrics.
