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

On March 21, 2018, the Board of Directors of Dorman Products, Inc. (the “Company”) adopted the Dorman Products, Inc. 2018 Cash Bonus Plan (the “2018 Cash Plan”) to replace the Company’s Executive Cash Bonus Plan. The purpose of the 2018 Cash Plan is to align officers’ and other employees’ efforts with the strategic goals of the Company through competitive annual incentive opportunities. The 2018 Cash Plan will be administered by the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors. The Compensation Committee will have the power to grant awards under the 2018 Cash Plan, determine the amount of cash to be paid pursuant to each award and the terms and conditions of each award. Awards may provide for payment in installments, or upon the satisfaction of qualitative performance standards or quantitative performance standards, on an individual, divisional or Company-wide basis, as determined by the Compensation Committee.

Each participant in the 2018 Cash Bonus Plan will be entitled to receive payment of the award only after certification by the Compensation Committee that the targets associated with the award have been satisfied. Final payments with respect to awards will vary based on the level of achievement measured against the pre-determined performance measures. Except as may be approved by the Compensation Committee, each participant must be employed full-time on the date of payment to receive the amount earned under the award. Except as otherwise provided by the Compensation Committee, awards will be paid on or before March 15th following the end of the plan year in which payment under the award is earned. The Compensation Committee will have the discretion to reduce or eliminate the amount otherwise payable to a participant if it determines that such a reduction or elimination is in the best interests of the Company.

The foregoing description of the 2018 Cash Bonus Plan does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the 2018 Cash Bonus Plan which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
