The Board of Directors of Tokmanni Group Corporation has resolved to continue long-term incentive program
TOKMANNI GROUP CORPORATION CORPORATE RELEASE 9.2.2018 8.45 a.m. EET
The Board of Directors of Tokmanni Group Corporation has resolved to continue its share-based incentive program directed to the key employees. The aim of the program is to combine the objectives of the shareholders and the key employees in order to increase the value of the Company in the long-term, to commit the key employees to implement the Company’s strategy, and to offer them a competitive reward program based on earning and accumulating the Company’s shares.
The performance share program includes the calendar year 2018. The potential reward of the program will be based on the Company’s Earnings per share on December 31st 2018 and on the market value development 1.1-31.12.2018.
The target group of the program includes the CEO, the members of the Executive Group as well as other key employees. The potential rewards, which by nature are taxable income, to be paid correspond to an approximate maximum total of 120,000 Tokmanni Group Corporation’s shares based on the 31 December 2017 market value and will be paid in Tokmanni Group shares in 2021. The Board can decide to pay the reward partly in cash. The cash proportion covers taxes and tax-related costs arising from the reward to a key employee. As a rule, no reward will be paid, if a target group employee´s employment or service ends before the reward payment.
