Exel Composites Plc’s Board of Directors has resolved on a new long-term incentive program for the Company Executives

The Board of Directors of Exel Composites Plc has on 12 February 2015 approved a new incentive program for the executives of the Company. The aim of the new program is to combine the objectives of the shareholders and the executives in order to increase the value of the Company, to commit the executives to the Company and to offer the executives a competitive reward program. The new program is based on a long-term monetary performance reward, and the program is targeted at approximately 25 executives for the earning period 2015 − 2017. The CEO and members of the Group Management Team are included in the target group of the new incentive program.  

The new program includes one earning period, the calendar years 2015 − 2017. The potential long-term monetary performance reward from the program for the earning period 2015 – 2017 will be based on the Group’s cumulative Economic Profit and on the Group’s Total Shareholder Return (TSR).

The potential reward from the earning period 2015 – 2017 will be paid in 2018. No reward will be paid to an executive, if his or her employment or service with the Group Company ends before the reward payment unless the executive is leaving the Company due to retirement.

The maximum reward to be paid on the basis of the earning period 2015 – 2017 will be EUR 1.5 million.
