Performance Unit Awards

On February 16, 2009, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Inc. (the
“Company”) approved the award of 600,000 performance units to each of the Company’s Co-Chief Executive Officers, Richard L.
Federico and Robert T. Vivian, pursuant to the Company’s 2006 Equity Incentive Plan. Each award will vest on January 1, 2012, at
which time the value of such awards, if any, will be determined and paid in cash.

The cash value of the performance units will be equal to the amount, if any, by which the Company’s final average stock
price, as defined, exceeds the strike price. The strike price will be adjusted, either up or down, based on the percentage change in
the Russell 2000 Index during the performance period, as defined, which approximates three years. The total value of the
performance units is subject to a maximum value of $12.50 per unit. In the event of an executive’s involuntary separation without
cause or due to a change in control (as both terms are defined in the executive employment agreements) prior to the end of the
performance period, the performance period will end and the maximum value per unit may be calculated at a reduced amount.
Additionally, if the Company’s final average stock price declines compared to the strike price, the total value of the performance
units, if any, will be reduced by 50 percent.

Amended Executive Employment Agreements

On February 18, 2009, the Company executed amendments to the executive employment agreements for Richard L. Federico
and Robert T. Vivian, the Company’s Co-Chief Executive Officers. Each employment agreement was revised to (i) extend the
remaining contractual service term through January 1, 2012, (ii) reflect the current executive positions of Mr. Federico and
Mr. Vivian within the Company, and (iii) require that any future amendments or modifications to the employment agreements be
signed by the Chairman of the Compensation Committee. No other modifications were made to the agreements.
