The Board is to determine the salary and other remuneration paid to the CEO. The CEO is to determine the salary and other remuneration paid to other senior executives in accordance with the Board’s guidelines. The term “other senior executives” refers to individuals who, in addition to the CEO, constitute Group Management. Basic remuneration levels are to be consistent with market terms. Remuneration consists of a fixed basic salary, any variable remuneration calculated on the basis of predetermined targets, other benefits, pension and financial instruments in the form of warrants. The division between fixed salary and variable remuneration is to be proportionate to the executive’s responsibilities and authorities. The variable remuneration for the CEO and other senior executives may not exceed 50% of their fixed salary. Pension terms are to be based on defined-contribution pension solutions. The period of notice in case of termination by the Company may not exceed six months. During the period of notice of up to six months, the employee receives a full salary and employee benefits. Decisions regarding share-based and share price-based incentive schemes are made by the general shareholders’ meeting. In individual cases and where specific reasons exist, the Board may deviate from the above guidelines.
