The Board of Directors of EAB Group Plc decided on key employee incentive plan

The Board of Directors of EAB Group Plc decided to establish a new share-based incentive plan for the Group key employees. The purpose of the plan is to align the interests of the owners and key employees for increasing the value of the company in the long-term. Furthermore, the aim is to commit the key employees to implementing the company’s strategy, to achieving targets and the company’s long-term interest, and to offer them a competitive reward scheme based on earning and accumulating of the company’s shares.

The Performance Share Plan consists of three 2-year performance periods, 1 August 2020–31 July 2022, 1 August 2021–31 July 2023 and 1 August 2022–31 July 2024. The Board of Directors decides on the plan’s performance criteria and targets established for each performance criterion at the beginning of each performance period.

During the performance period 2020–2022, approximately 10 key employees belong to the target group of the plan, including the members of the company’s Executive Group. The potential reward from the performance period 2020–2022 is based on the Total Shareholder Return of the EAB Group Plc share. The rewards to be paid out based on the Performance Period 2020–2022 correspond to the value of a maximum total of 635,000 EAB Group Plc shares, including also the proportion to be paid in cash. 

The potential reward from the Performance Period 2020–2022 will be paid after the end of the performance period during approximately three years in four instalments. The reward is paid partly in the company’s shares and partly in cash. The cash proportion is intended to cover taxes and tax-related costs arising from the reward to a key employee. If a key employees’ employment or service terminates before the reward payment, as a rule, no reward is paid. The shares paid as reward may not be transferred during a one-year waiting period set for the shares.

A key employee must hold the net number of shares paid as reward to him or her based on the plan until the key employee’s shareholding in the company in total equals the value of his or her fixed annual gross salary. Such number of shares must be held until the end of the key employee’s employment or service in the company belonging to the Group.
