(e) 2020 Annual Bonus Plan

As set forth in the Compensation Discussion and Analysis in the proxy statement for the 2020 annual meeting of stockholders of Restaurant Brands International Inc. (“RBI”), the annual bonus program is designed to motivate and reward employees who contribute positively toward our business strategy, and achieve both financial and individual performance targets. Consistent with these objectives, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the RBI’s Board of Directors has considered the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has impacted RBI’s business in ways that could not be anticipated at the time that these performance targets were established with respect to the 2020 plan year, and accordingly, in August 2020, determined that it was in the best interests of the Company and stockholders to revise the performance criteria for the 2020 bonus awards under the annual bonus program, including the performance goals applicable to RBI’s named executive officers.

For each named executive officer, 2020 bonus awards will be tied to an achievement percentage based on achievement of the executive's KPIs adjusted by a global multiplier. However, the global multiplier that the Committee originally set in January 2020 has been revised based on an updated operating budget approved by the Board of Directors on August 5, 2020. In addition, under the revised 2020 annual bonus program, each named executive officer’s incentive award opportunity has been reduced from a maximum of 172.5% of their individual bonus target to a maximum of 80% of their individual bonus target amount as established under the terms of our annual bonus program. Attainment of the target global multiplier results in a payout of 80% of the earned bonus based on the achievement percentage, while attainment of the threshold multiplier results in a payout of 50% of such earned bonus.

The Compensation Committee believes the revised program is better aligned with the current outlook for the company given the business disruption from the Covid-19 pandemic, and it ensures we appropriately motivate, reward and retain our executives as we recover from the pandemic.
