(e) On March 9, 2021, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) adopted the CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. Corporate Incentive Plan (“CIP”), which will govern the terms of annual cash incentive awards granted to eligible employees of the Company (including each of the Company’s current named executive officers), as determined by the Committee from time to time. Employees who participate in any other cash incentive plan or commission plan maintained by the Company will not be eligible to participate in the CIP. The Committee (or its delegate) will administer the CIP and will have the authority to determine all of the terms of the awards granted under the CIP.


The CIP provides for a cash incentive award pool determined based on the achievement of specified quarterly performance goals, which may include annual recurring revenue, operating income, EBITDA and/or any other performance objectives set forth in Section 10(c) of the CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. 2019 Equity Incentive Plan (as amended from time to time). The performance measures for the Company’s named executive officers for the Company’s fiscal year ending January 31, 2022 will be described in the Company’s annual proxy statement filed in 2022. Following the end of each quarterly performance period, the Committee will determine achievement of the performance goals. The Committee may modify and/or adjust the performance goals or the related level of achievement, in whole or in part, as it deems appropriate or equitable.


A participant’s individual cash incentive award under the CIP payable from the award pool for the applicable performance period may be subject to such additional department, individual or other performance goals as determined by the Committee. Any cash incentive awards that become payable under the CIP will generally be paid no later than 60 days following the end of the applicable performance period. In order to receive an award under the CIP, the participant must remain employed with the Company through the date of payment.


The foregoing description of the CIP is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the CIP, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
