### FAQ

**How is the Total Bonus Amount calculated?**

The Total Bonus Amount is calculated by multiplying the Base Salary by the Performance Bonus Percentage (expressed as a decimal). For example, if the base salary is $100,000 and the performance bonus percentage is 10%, the Total Bonus Amount would be $100,000 * (10 / 100) = $10,000.

**What if the Performance Bonus Percentage is zero?**

If the Performance Bonus Percentage is zero, the Total Bonus Amount will also be zero. This means the total compensation will only include the base salary, stock options, and other compensation.

**Can Stock Options Value be negative?**

No, the Stock Options Value should not be negative. It represents the estimated value of stock options granted, which is typically a positive value.

**How should Other Compensation be handled if it's zero?**

If there is no additional compensation, simply enter zero for Other Compensation. The Total Compensation will then be the sum of the Base Salary, Total Bonus Amount, and Stock Options Value.
