I am an attorney and I am handling this problem as part of case. The difference in calculation is around USD 400,000 difference in bonus.
Bonus Scheme is based on share increase in value to other companies. The calculation comes out to be in the Top 30.7%.
100% Bonus for Top 30% 50% Bonus for Mid 50% No Bonus for Bottom 20%
Is 30.7% part of the whole number 30% and thus in the Top 30%? We have no rounding rule only the aforementioned information.
