Directors who are not employees are annually paid a retainer of $40,000, a fee
of $7,500 for each committee on which they serve, $2,500 for service as a
committee chair, $2,500 for attendance at the Company's strategic planning
conference, and $2,500 for attendance at the Company's annual planning
conference. Compensation for other designated activities, such as visits to TI
facilities and attendance at certain company events, is provided at the rate
of $1,000 per day. In 1993, the Company made payments (an aggregate of
$26,669) relating to premiums for life, medical, dental, travel and accident
insurance policies covering directors.
Subject to certain limitations, directors may elect that all or part of their
fees be deferred until retirement from the board or other specified times.
Deferred fees earn interest from the Company at a rate (currently based on
interest rates on certain certificates of deposit) determined from time to
time by the board or the Compensation Committee.
The Company maintains a directors retirement plan under which directors who
have not at any time been entitled to receive benefits under a pension plan
maintained by the Company will, upon retirement from the board, death, or
disability, after at least five years of service as a director, be entitled to
receive benefits. The benefits will be payable for life, or if greater, the
number of years served as a director, and will be in an annual amount equal to
75% of the annual retainer payable to directors for the year in which the
director retires, dies, or becomes disabled. Individuals who were directors on
February 18, 1994 will receive a reduced benefit equal to 60% of the annual
retainer payable to directors for the year in which they retire unless they
elect to forego life, medical, dental and accident insurance currently
provided by the Company. Directors may elect to receive the retirement
benefit in the form of a lump sum payment in lieu of periodic payments.
Each director who has completed five years of service as a member of the board
of directors, and whose board membership terminates as a result of
ineligibility for reelection after the attainment of a specified age or, in
the case of non-employee directors, as a result of death or disability, will
be eligible to participate in a Director Award Program. The program was
established to promote the Company's interest in supporting educational
institutions. The Company may contribute a total of $500,000 with respect to
each eligible director to up to three eligible educational institutions (or
other charitable institutions approved by the Board Organization and
Nominating Committee) recommended by the director and approved by the Company.
The contributions will be made in five annual installments of $100,000 each,
commencing as soon as practicable following the director's death. Directors
derive no financial benefit from the program and all charitable deductions
will accrue solely to the Company.
The Company is committed to building shareholder value through improved
performance and growth. To achieve this objective, TI seeks to create an
environment in which employees recognize that they are valued as individuals
and treated with respect, dignity and fairness.
The Company uses a merit-based system of compensation to encourage individual
employees to achieve their productive and creative potential, and to link
individual financial goals to Company performance. The Company regularly
compares its compensation system with those of competitors and refines its
system as necessary to encourage a motivated and productive work force.

Early Retirement Agreements
The Company has a policy providing for optional early retirement agreements
for the chairman of the board, the president and such other personnel as the
board of directors may designate, upon attainment of age 58 and such minimum
lengths of service as the board may specify. Participants enter into early
retirement agreements with the Company which among other things prohibit
competition with the Company until the attainment of age 69. Payments under
the agreements are based on the difference between the retirement benefits the
individual is to receive from the Company's U.S. pension plan and the
retirement benefits the individual would have received from the pension plan
had the individual remained in employment with the Company until the
attainment of age 65 at a rate of compensation equal to the average annual
eligible earnings (as defined in the pension plan) received during the three
years immediately preceding early retirement. The individual may elect
payment under the early retirement agreement in the form of monthly payments
for life, monthly payments to the individual or the individual's estate or
survivors until the date of the individual's 69th birthday, or a 50% joint and
COMPENSATION COMMITTEE REPORT ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
The Compensation Committee of the board of directors has furnished the
following report on executive compensation paid or awarded to executive
officers for 1993:
The executive compensation program is administered by the Compensation
Committee of the board of directors (the Committee), which is composed of the
individuals listed below, all of whom are independent directors of the
corporation. The program consists of base salaries, annual incentive awards
and long-term compensation. At higher management levels, the mix of
compensation is weighted more to the performance-based components--annual
incentive and long-term compensation.
In determining the compensation of the executive officers, the Committee
considered guidelines developed for each component of compensation. As
indicated below, the guidelines took account of compensation practices of
competitor companies (as reported in various surveys administered by national
compensation consulting firms) and the relative performance of TI and
competitor companies. The competitor companies are primarily major high-
technology competitors in one or more of the markets - semiconductor, defense
and information technology - in which the Company operates. While many of
these companies are included in the S&P High-Technology Composite Index
appearing in the graph regarding total shareholder return on page 16, these
companies are not the same as the companies comprising that index. Each
guideline was set including the best available data from as many competitor
companies as practicable. The Committee also considered the performance of
the executive officers toward the Company's prior year and long-term strategic
objectives; in this connection, the CEO made recommendations regarding the
components of each executive's compensation package except his own.
In its considerations, the Committee did not assign quantitative relative
weights to different factors or follow mathematical formulae. Rather, the
Committee exercised its discretion and made a judgment after considering the
factors it deemed relevant.
The Committee's decisions regarding 1993 executive compensation were designed
to: (1) align the interests of executives with the interests of the
stockholders by providing performance-based awards; and (2) allow the Company
to compete for and retain executives critical to the Company's success by
providing an opportunity for compensation that is comparable to the levels
offered by other companies in our markets.
Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code denies a deduction to any publicly
held corporation for compensation paid to a "covered employee" in a taxable
year to the extent that the employee's compensation exceeds $1 million. In
December 1993, the Internal Revenue Service published proposed regulations
governing the $1 million deductibility cap. Pursuant to those proposed
regulations, the Company's "covered employees" will be those who, at the end
of the year, are the chief executive officer and the four other highest
compensated officers of the Company as determined under the rules of the
Securities and Exchange Commission governing executive compensation
Under the transitional rules set forth in the proposed regulations, all
compensation attributable to stock options granted under the Company's Long-
Term Incentive Plan prior to the Company's 1997 Annual Meeting is expected to
qualify for deductibility under Section 162(m). Also, the Committee expects
that the annual incentive awards granted to date to the Company's executive
officers will, together with their 1994 salaries and any other compensation
paid to them in 1994, qualify for deductibility. The Committee's policy with
respect to qualifying other compensation to be paid to its executive officers
in the future has not yet been determined.
Annual compensation (base salary and annual incentive) guidelines were
established such that TI executives will receive a level of annual
compensation at, above or below the median annual compensation paid by
competitor companies depending upon whether TI's actual ROA is at, above or
below its internally established performance threshold, as described below.
Base Salary. Base salary guidelines were established at the median level of
salaries for similarly situated executives of competitor companies, or of
organizations within competitor companies, of similar size (in terms of total
revenue). The Committee in its discretion, made recommendations regarding
officer salaries to the board in January 1993 at what it considered to be
appropriate levels after reviewing performance toward prior year objectives
(such as attaining positive cash flow for 1992) and long-term strategic
objectives (such as a shift in the product mix of the Company's semiconductor
business, or achievement of a target sustained after-tax return on total
assets for a specific Company unit or, in the case of the CEO, the Company
In January 1993, the CEO received a base salary adjustment to an annual salary
rate of $700,200. Although the Company's guidelines are to provide base
salary at the median of competitor companies, the Committee had not adjusted
Mr. Junkins' salary in the prior two years. Noting the improvement in the
financial performance of the Company during 1992, as evidenced by a return to
profitability, the Committee adjusted Mr. Junkins' salary to the level stated
above, which, in the Committee's judgment, remained somewhat below the median
of CEOs of competitor companies.
Annual Incentive. The Committee determined annual incentive awards in
December 1993 and January 1994. As the performance component of annual
compensation, the annual incentive award varies significantly based on the
Company's profitability and the individual's contribution toward the Company's
performance. The performance threshold established for purposes of
determining annual incentive awards is stated in terms of after-tax return on
total assets (ROA). The ROA performance threshold was established for 1993
taking into account (a) the ROA performance, in recent years, of competitor
companies, and (b) the ROA the Company believes would be likely to increase
shareholder value over the long term.
Taking into account each executive's contributions toward prior year
objectives and the degree to which TI's ROA performance exceeded the ROA
performance threshold, the Committee granted annual incentive awards to TI's
executive officers such that the level of the officers' annual compensation
(base salary plus incentive award) for 1993 slightly exceeded the median of
competitors' annual compensation.
In determining the CEO's annual incentive award, the Committee noted that
progress was made in a number of strategic milestones, essential for achieving
the Company's goal of sustained ROA performance and building shareholder
value. In semiconductors, operating margins increased sharply as
differentiated products increased to about 50% of total semiconductor
revenues. In defense electronics, profit margins were maintained despite the
continued decline in U.S. defense spending. For information technology, new
client/server software was successfully introduced to market and actions taken
to improve financial performance. With success in cycle-time reduction and
asset management programs, TI generated a positive cash flow, despite the
higher level of capital expenditures. Collectively, these accomplishments
have permitted an acceleration in the R&D in 1993 by more than $100 million,
laying the foundation for TI's future growth. Taking into account these
performance factors and the degree to which TI's ROA exceeded the performance
threshold, the Committee granted Mr. Junkins an annual incentive award of
$740,000 for 1993. Mr. Junkins' annual compensation (base salary plus
incentive award) for 1993 approximated the median for competitor companies.
The Committee determined long-term compensation in April 1993. Stock options
constitute TI's primary long-term incentive vehicle. Stock options granted in
1993 were granted at 100% of fair market value on the date of grant, have a
10-year term and do not become exercisable until after eight years, although
exercisability may be accelerated to the extent that earnings per share goals
are achieved (or in the event of a change in control of the Company). Any
value received by the executive from an option grant depends completely upon
increases in the price of TI common stock.
Guidelines for awards granted under TI's long-term incentive program were set
with the intention of providing TI executives an opportunity for financial
gain equivalent to the median opportunity provided by competitor companies
through all their long-term compensation programs. For this purpose, the
future rate of appreciation of the shares underlying stock-based awards is
assumed to be the same for all companies. Although not considered in
establishing guidelines for stock option grants, the size of prior grants was
considered in administering the guidelines.
The Committee reviewed the guidelines. Taking into account each executive's
contribution toward prior year objectives and expected contribution toward
meeting the Company's long-term strategic objectives, the Committee
determined to follow the guidelines for all but the CEO and one other
executive officer. In the case of the General Counsel, the Committee granted
stock options slightly in excess of the guidelines and also granted a stock
award of 1340 shares in recognition of his contribution to the generation of
significant royalty revenues and the ongoing protection of the Company's
intellectual property rights. The stock award vests over a period of three
In determining the CEO's stock option grant, the Committee reviewed progress
made toward the Company's long-term objectives: a shift in the product mix of
the semiconductor business toward differentiated products was proceeding ahead
of schedule; steady progress was being made toward meeting the Company's ROA
goal; profit margins were being maintained in defense electronics while sizing
that business to a smaller market; and R&D investments were being increased in
areas that could provide significant new business opportunities for the
Company. The Committee determined that the grant of the option to purchase
50,000 shares at a price per share of $54.75 (the market value of TI's common
stock on the date of grant), would, in its judgment, provide the CEO with a
competitive financial opportunity. Although substantial progress was made
toward the Company's long-term objectives, the option grant was, in the
Committee's judgment, slightly below the median; the Committee anticipates
that as this progress toward the objectives is sustained, future grants will
be nearer to or may exceed the median. Until the year 2001, the
exercisability of the option depends primarily on the achievement of specific
earnings per share goals.

Cost of Solicitation
The solicitation is made on behalf of the board of directors of the Company.
The cost of soliciting proxies will be borne by the Company. In addition to
solicitation by mail, the Company will make arrangements with brokerage houses
and other custodians, nominees and fiduciaries to send proxies and proxy
material to their principals and will reimburse them for their expenses in so
doing. Officials and regular employees of the Company, without additional
compensation, may solicit proxies personally, by telephone or telegram, from
some stockholders if proxies are not promptly received. In addition, the
Company has retained Georgeson & Company, Inc. to assist in the solicitation
of proxies at a cost of $15,000 plus out-of-pocket expenses.
Proposals of Stockholders
The deadline for receipt of stockholder proposals for inclusion in the
Company's 1995 proxy material is November 2, 1994.
Suggestions from stockholders concerning the Company's business are welcome
and all will be carefully considered by the Company's management. To assure
appropriate board review of such suggestions, the Stockholder Relations and
Public Policy Committee of the board of directors periodically reviews
correspondence from stockholders and management's responses. Through this
activity, stockholders are provided access at the board level without having
to resort to formal stockholder proposals. As a general matter, the board
would prefer that stockholders present their views through the mechanism
provided by its Stockholder Relations and Public Policy Committee rather than
through the process of formal stockholder proposals.
The ten nominees for election as directors at the 1994 Annual Meeting of
Stockholders who receive the greatest number of votes cast at that meeting by
the holders of the Company's common stock entitled to vote at that meeting, a
quorum being present, shall become directors at the conclusion of the
tabulation of votes. An affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the
voting power of the Company's common stock, present in person or represented
by proxy and entitled to vote at the meeting, a quorum being present, is
necessary to approve any other matters as may properly come before the
meeting. Under Delaware law and the Company's Restated Certificate of
Incorporation and By-Laws, the aggregate number of votes entitled to be cast
by all stockholders present in person or represented by proxy at the meeting,
whether those stockholders vote FOR, AGAINST or abstain from voting, will be
counted for purposes of determining the minimum number of affirmative votes
required for approval of such matters, and the total number of votes cast FOR
each of these matters will be counted for purposes of determining whether
sufficient affirmative votes have been cast. An abstention from voting on a
matter by a stockholder present in person or represented by proxy at the
meeting has the same legal effect as a vote AGAINST the matter even though the
stockholder or interested parties analyzing the results of the voting may
interpret such a vote differently.
Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires certain persons,
including the Company's directors and executive officers, to file reports with
the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding beneficial ownership of
certain equity securities of the Company. During 1993, John W. White, a former
vice president of the Company, filed one late report.
The firm of Ernst & Young has been selected by the board of directors,
pursuant to the recommendation of its Audit Committee, as independent auditors
for the Company. Representatives of such firm are expected to be present, and
to be available to respond to appropriate questions, at the annual meeting.
They will have the opportunity to make a statement if they desire to do so;
they have indicated that, as of this date, they do not desire to do so.
