EXEL COMPOSITES PLC  STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE   18 FEBRUARY 2020 08:45 EET

The Board of Directors of Exel Composites Plc has decided on the continuation of the share-based long-term incentive program for the top management of Exel Composites. The 2020 performance-based plan is part of the share-based long-term incentive program published on 4 May 2017, which objectives are to align the interests of the management with those of the company’s shareholders and, thus, to promote shareholder value creation in the long term, to commit the management to achieving the strategic targets of the company and to retain the company’s key individuals.

The performance targets applied to the plan commencing at the beginning of 2020 are adjusted operating profit (EBIT) and the total shareholder return of the company’s share (TSR). The potential share rewards payable will be paid in the spring 2023, provided that the performance targets are achieved and the continuous employment condition is met. The potential rewards will be paid in listed shares of Exel Composites.

The Board of Directors has approved 20 persons belonging to the company’s top management as eligible to participate in the 2020 plan. The Board of Directors may nominate additional participants to this plan within the maximum limits of the plan set out below.

If the performance targets set for the 2020 plan are fully achieved, the aggregate maximum number of shares to be paid under this individual plan is 125 000 shares. The aggregate value of the 2020 plan, estimated based on the average share price of 14 February 2020, is approximately EUR 0.8 million.
