2014 Base Compensation and Incentive Compensation Target The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the "Committee") of Aerohive Networks, Inc. (the "Company") retained a compensation consultant to conduct in 2014 an executive compensation assessment, including a review of executive compensation trends in the Company's peer group. After consideration of the analysis performed by our compensation consultant, the Committee determined that the current annual base salary compensation and cash incentive-based compensation for the Company's named executive officers was significantly below the 25th percentile of the Company's peer group.

On June 18, 2014, the Committee approved annual base salary compensation increases effective April 1, 2014, and 2014 cash incentive-based compensation targets, effective as of July 1, 2014, each for our named executive officers as set forth in the chart below, which approximates for the respective named executive officers the 25th percentile of comparable executive compensation for the Company's peer group.
