2011 Corporate Bonus Plan
On January 25, 2010, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of Informatica Corporation (“Informatica”) approved the allocations, methodologies, and metrics for the payment of bonuses for fiscal 2011, if any, to Informatica’s named executive officers.
Aggregate cash bonus amounts range between 70% and 100% of base salary per individual at the target level of achievement. Each individual’s actual bonus will be determined by a formula based on the achievement of performance objectives related to non-GAAP operating income and license bookings, measured on a semi-annual basis. There is no payout for achievement at less than 80% of the target level. It is possible to exceed the target level of achievement and receive a bonus payment in excess of the amount payable at the target level, up to a maximum of 200% of the target bonus amount. Bonus payments are anticipated to be made semi-annually. The Committee determines the actual bonus payments for all of the named executive officers.



     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.
