Fortum commences the 2018-2020 incentive plan as part of its ongoing long-term incentive programme

FORTUM CORPORATION INVESTOR NEWS 19 DECEMBER 2017 AT 14.30 EET

The Board of Directors of Fortum Corporation has decided to commence the 2018-2020 long-term incentive (LTI) plan for key employees and executives. The 2018-2020 LTI plan is part of Fortum's ongoing LTI programme and follows the same principles as the previous plan.

The objective of the LTI programme is to support the implementation of the company’s strategy, delivery of sustainable long-term value enhancing performance, and to align the interests of the executive management and key employees with its shareholders.

The performance measures applied to the 2018-2020 LTI plan will be based on cumulative Earnings Per Share over three years and the Total Shareholder Return measured relative to the European Utilities Group, both with an equal weight of 50%. Potential rewards related to the 2018-2020 LTI plan will be paid in the spring 2021, assuming that the performance targets set by the Board of Directors are achieved.

The 2018-2020 LTI plan will comprise approximately 110 participants, including the members of Fortum Executive Management.

The maximum number of shares that may potentially be delivered as a reward under the 2018-2020 LTI plan, based on the currently prevailing price of Fortum’s share, is expected not to exceed 700,000 shares.

In December 2016, Fortum announced an amendment of its LTI programme. The programme complies with the Finnish government ownership guidelines for management remuneration. The combined value of all variable compensation paid to an individual participant under the long and short-term incentive plans may not exceed 120 per cent of the person’s gross annual fixed salary in any year.
