In May 2017, the Compensation Committee of Alon USA Energy, Inc. (the "Company") approved the payment of cash bonuses under the Company's 2005 Incentive Compensation Plan based on performance in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016. As a result, on May 26, 2017, the Company paid cash bonuses to the Company's named executive officers.
The amounts of these bonuses had not been determined at the time of the filing of the Company's Amendment No. 1 to Form 10-K (the “Form 10-K/A”) and were therefore not included in the “Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation” column contained in the Summary Compensation Table set forth therein. The amount awarded to the Company's named executive officers is set forth below in the “Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation” column as well as the amount of compensation that would have been reflected in the “Total” column of the Summary Compensation Table had the amounts of these awards been determined prior to the filing of the Form 10-K/A. Previous amounts reported in the “Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation” column have been omitted.
