The potential rewards will be paid in listed shares of Exel Composites.

The Board of Directors has approved 15 persons belonging to the company’s top management as eligible to participate in the 2018 plan. The Board of Directors may nominate additional participants to this plan within the maximum limits of the plan set out below.

If the performance targets set for the 2018 plan are fully achieved, the aggregate maximum number of shares to be paid under this individual plan is 122,000 shares. The aggregate value of the 2018 plan, estimated based on the average share price of the last trading day preceding the date hereof, is approximately EUR 0.8 million.
