Share-based incentive schemes

Share-based scheme 2014 - 2016  

In December 2013, Raisio plc’s Board decided on the Group’s new key employees’ share-based incentive scheme for the period of 2014 – 2016. The purpose of the scheme is to combine the objectives of owners and key personnel in order to increase the company’s capitalisation value, to commit the key personnel to the company and to offer them a competitive reward system based on the company’s share price development and earnings.

The earning period of the share incentive scheme started on 1 January 2014 and ended on 31 December 2016. Potential bonus of the scheme for the earning period 2014 - 2016 is based on the company’s Total Shareholder Return (TSR). Bonus payment is dependent on the achievement of the Group’s cumulative profit target (EBT, earnings before taxes) during the earning period.

Bonuses for the earning period 2014 - 2016 will be paid in 2017, partly in the company’s free shares and partly in cash. The cash payment is made to cover the taxes and fiscal fees arising from the reward. In case the employment or service of a key employee ends before the bonus payment, as a rule no bonus is paid.

The Board recommends that the key employees within the scheme hold a substantial part of all shares they have received based on the scheme as long as the value of their holdings corresponds to their six months’ gross salary.

On 31 December 2016, a total of 18 persons were within the share incentive scheme. Bonuses to be paid based on the earning period 2014 - 2016 correspond to the value of a maximum total of 1,000,000 Raisio plc free shares including the part paid in cash.
