Item 5.02Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers


On April 5, 2017, the Board of Directors of RF Industries, Ltd. (the “Company”) adopted corporate goals for the determination of cash bonuses to be paid to Mark Turfler, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, for the 2017 fiscal year. The target bonus payable to Mr. Turfler is 40% of his 2017 base salary. The cash bonus that Mr. Turfler can receive will be based upon (i) the Company’s subjective determination of his performance (30% of the bonus) and (ii) the achievement by the Company of certain EBITDA targets for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2017 (70% of the bonus). Mr. Turfler’s base salary for fiscal 2017 is $170,000. The Board and the Compensation Committee reserve the right to modify these goals and criteria at any time, to pay bonuses greater than the target percentages, and to grant bonuses even if the performance goals are not met.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
