(e) ‘Total FY 2008 Incremental Target’ shall equal $5,000,000.

(j) ‘FY 2008 Shortfall Share Percentage’ shall equal a fraction, the numerator of which, for each video lottery agent that failed to reach its Video Lottery Agent Target Amount during the Review Period, shall be the respective video lottery agent’s State Share during the Review period, the denominator of which shall be the sum of all video lottery agents’ State Shares which, during the Review Period, have failed to reach their respective Video Lottery Agent Target Amounts.

Section 4. Fiscal Year 2008 Performance Benchmark.

In addition to the State Share remitted to the State, video lottery agents must remit to the State an additional surcharge. The amount of the additional surcharge shall vary depending upon both the individual video lottery agent’s performance and the performance of the video lottery industry as a whole. In the event that the sum of the total of all video lottery agents’ State Shares during the Review Period is:

(a) not less than the Total State Target Amount, then the amount of the Fiscal Year 2008 surcharge for all video lottery agents shall be zero,

(b) no more than $10,000,000 below the Total State Target Amount, then the amount of the Fiscal Year 2008 surcharge shall be determined as follows. In the event a video lottery agent’s State Share during the Review Period:

(1) exceeds its Video Lottery Agent Target Amount, the Fiscal Year 2008 additional surcharge for said video lottery agent shall be zero,

(2) is less than its Video Lottery Agent Target Amount, the Fiscal Year 2008 additional surcharge for said video lottery agent shall be the lesser of:

a. its Video Lottery Agent Incremental Target,

b. its Video Lottery Agent Shortfall, or

c. the FY 2008 Aggregate Shortfall times its FY 2008 Shortfall Share Percentage.

(a) more than $10,000,000 below the Total State Target Amount, then the amount of the Fiscal Year 2008 surcharge shall be determined as follows. In the event a video lottery agent’s State Share during the Review Period:

(1) exceeds its Video Lottery Agent Target Amount, the Fiscal Year 2008 additional surcharge for said video lottery agent shall be zero,

(2) is less than its Video Lottery Agent Target Amount, the Fiscal Year 2008 additional surcharge for said video lottery agent shall be the lesser of:

a. its Video Lottery Agent Incremental Target (calculated for purposes of this subparagraph(a) only with a Total FY 2008 Incremental Target equal to $6,000,000), or

b. an amount equal to its Video Lottery Agent Target Amount (calculated for purposes of this subparagraph (b) only with a Total FY 2008 Incremental Target equal to $6,000,000) minus its State Share during the Review Period.

(a) The Fiscal Year 2008 Additional Surcharge must be remitted by video lottery agents to the State no later than June 25, 2008. Payments received after June 25, 2008, may, at the discretion of the Secretary of Finance, be subject to interest provisions provided in § 533 of Title 30 of the Delaware Code.”.

Section 5. This Act shall be effective upon its enactment into law.
