Guidelines for remuneration of senior executives
In brief, the AGM resolved that the company shall offer a market-based total compensation package that enables the recruitment and retention of senior executives. The basic salary shall be determined by the individual executive's responsibilities, experience and results achieved. The basic salary is revised annually. The variable pay is based on achieved predetermined operational objectives, the wide majority of which correspond to financial targets. The variable remuneration is paid in the form of variable pay to each senior executive at an amount corresponding to a maximum of 50 percent of basic salary. The board also has the right to design variable pay systems so that the total variable remuneration to the CEO is an amount equal to a maximum of 100 percent of basic salary, provided that such variable pay is linked to well defined commitments to purchase shares in Cybercom for a substantial part of the compensation. The objectives for variable pay are revised annually.
Long-term incentive programmes such as options plans, equity savings plans with share matching or similar constructions may form part of the remuneration of senior executives at the company from time to time as decided by the AGM.
Pension provision should be at market terms and using defined contributions. The company aims to offer competitive and market-adjusted overall remuneration to senior executives, of which the pension forms a part and where the balance between pension and basic salary is agreed upon in each individual case. The above guidelines may be waived by the board in individual cases where there are special circumstances.
Statutory board meeting
The board decided to appoint Jan-Erik Karlsson as chairman and Hampus Ericsson as a member of the remuneration committee. The board also decided to appoint Ulrika Dellby as chairman and Nicolas Hassbjer as a member of the audit committee.
