The amounts reported in the Equity Awards column represent the grant date fair value of the stock options and restricted stock units granted to the Named Executive Officers during the year ended December 31, 2018 as computed in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification Topic 718. The assumptions used in calculating the grant date fair value of the equity awards reported in this column are set forth in Notes 2 and 9 to the audited consolidated financial statements included in Dermiras annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 26, 2019. Note that the amounts reported in this column reflect the accounting cost for these equity awards, and do not correspond to the actual economic value that may be received by our Named Executive Officers therefrom.
The amounts reported in the Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation column represent bonuses earned by the Named Executive Officers under Dermiras incentive compensation guidelines recommended by Dermiras compensation committee (Compensation Committee) of the board of directors (the Board) and approved by the Board for the year ended December 31, 2018. Under the guidelines, Mr. Wiggans was entitled to a target bonus of up to 60% of his base salary, Ms. Lyons-Williams and Messrs. Peña, Guggenhime and Horan were each entitled to a target bonus of up to 40% of his or her base salary. In February 2019, the Compensation Committee determined the actual amounts of the incentive bonuses for the year ended December 31, 2018 based on Dermiras achievement of corporate objectives. Bonuses of approximately 95% of the target bonuses were paid to the Named Executive Officers based on Dermiras achievement of corporate objectives.
