Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On March 25, 2013, the Chief Executive Officer (the “CEO”) of AsiaInfo-Linkage, Inc. (the “Company”), pursuant to the Company’s Employee Incentive Program for fiscal year 2012 (the “2012 EIP”) previously approved by the Compensation Committee (the “Compensation Committee”) of the Company’s Board of Directors, reviewed the performance of each of the Company’s executive officers (other than Libin Sun), and determined the appropriate payout amounts for the “named executive officers” (other than the CEO, and other than Libin Sun whose performance bonus is expected to be determined by the Compensation Committee) as defined by Item 402(a)(3) of Regulation S-K (the “NEOs”). Details on how payments were calculated under the 2012 EIP for the NEOs are set forth in the Company’s definitive proxy statement related to the Annual Stockholders Meeting to be held on April 25, 2013, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 28, 2013 (the “Proxy Statement”). As of the filing of the Proxy Statement, the payment amounts under the 2012 EIP were not determined and were omitted from the “Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation” column of the Summary Compensation Table beginning on page 24 of the Proxy Statement. An updated Summary Compensation Table reflecting the total non-equity incentive compensation earned by the CEO during fiscal year 2012 was filed on Form 8-K with the SEC on March 25, 2013. A further updated Summary Compensation Table reflecting the total non-equity incentive compensation earned by the other NEOs (other than Mr. Sun) during fiscal year 2012 is set forth below.
