Principles applied to remuneration schemes

 

The goal of remuneration schemes is to promote competitiveness and long-term financial success of the Company and to contribute to the favourable development of shareholder value. Remuneration schemes are based on predetermined and measurable performance and result criteria.

The task of the Board’s Nomination and Remuneration Committee is to assist the Board of Directors in matters related to the remuneration of the Company's CEO, the deputy CEO and other executives and to prepare matters related to the reward schemes for employees.

 

Decision-making process

 

The General Meeting shall decide on the remuneration payable for Board and Committee work as well as the basis for its determination. The Nomination and Remuneration Committee has been assigned the duty of preparing the remuneration of the Board. The Board of Directors shall decide on the remuneration of the CEO as well as other compensation payable to him or her. The compensation principles for the Management Group are determined by the CEO in cooperation with the Board of Directors.

 

Remuneration of the Board of Directors

 

According to the resolution passed by the Annual General Meeting of 2017, the remuneration for each member of the Board of Directors is 600 euros per meeting and for the Chairman of the Board of Directors 1,200 euros per meeting. In addition, each member of the Board receives 24,400 euros per year and the Chairman of the Board of Directors 48,800 euros per year. Daily allowances and travel expenses are paid to the Board members according to the Company’s travel policy.

According to the resolution passed by the Annual General Meeting of 2017, the remuneration for each member of the Nomination and Remuneration Committee is 600 euros per meeting and for the Chairman of the Nomination and Remuneration Committee 1,200 euros per meeting. In addition, daily allowances and travel expenses are paid for the meetings to the committee members according to the Company’s travel policy.

Remuneration for Board and Committee work is not paid in the form of Company shares and the Board members are not in the target group of Company’s share based incentive plan.

 

Remuneration of the CEO

 

The CEO’s compensation consists of a basic salary and a yearly bonus decided annually by the Board on the basis of the Group’s financial result and other key targets. The maximum amount of yearly bonus is 100 per cent of the annual salary. In addition, the CEO has car and phone benefits. Statutory retirement age applies to the CEO. The term of notice for the CEO is six months. In the event of dismissal, the CEO is at the most entitled to receive compensation equivalent to 18 months’ salary which includes the salary for a six-month term of notice.

In 2017 President and CEO Juha Näkki’s basic salary was EUR 286,663.61. In 2017, his car, phone and medical expenses insurance benefits totalled to EUR 16,415.25. EUR 100,137.00 of performance based bonus accrued from year 2016 was paid to the President and CEO in 2017. In addition, the President and CEO received as nonrecurring rewards for share-based incentive plans comprising calendar years 2014-2016 a total of EUR 1,324,393.95 (including 90,634 shares and thereto related taxes and tax-related costs). Rewards were paid for two separate incentive plans, one directed at the President and CEO and one at the key personnel of the Company. More information on said incentive plans and rewards can be found under point Share-based incentive plans.

The President and CEO is included in the share-based incentive plan for the Group's key personnel. The incentive plan includes one three year earning period comprising calendat years 2017-2019. The potential nonrecurring reward of the incentive plan will be paid after the earning period in 2020.

In 2017 no additional accrual basis pension insurance policy was paid for the President and CEO Juha Näkki.

 

Remuneration of other executives

 

The system of compensation for the members of the Management Group includes a basic salary and a performance based bonus. The principles for performance based bonus are decided annually. The maximum of the yearly bonus is 33-100 percent of the recipient’s annual salary depending on the member’s duties. No separate agreement has been made regarding early retirement for the members of the Management Group. The term of notice for a Management Group member is at least 4 months. In the event of dismissal, a Management Group member is at the most entitled to receive compensation equivalent to 10 months’ salary which includes the salary for a four-month term of notice.

In 2017 the Management Group members’ basic salary was in total EUR 1,101,198.24. In 2017, the car, phone and medical expenses insurance benefits of the Management Group members totalled to EUR 31,522.76. In total EUR 219,629.28 of performance based bonus accrued from year 2016 was paid to Management Group members in 2017. In addition, the other Management Group members received as nonrecurring reward for a share-based incentive plan comprising calendar years 2014-2016 a total of EUR 1,144,104.36 (including 80,678 shares and thereto related taxes and tax-related costs). The reward was paid for the incentive plan directed at the key personnel of the Company. More information on said incentive plan and reward can be found under point Share-based incentive plans.

 

Share-based incentive plan

 

The Board of Directors of Etteplan Oyj decided on May 31, 2017, to establish a new share-based incentive plan for the Group’s key personnel. The incentive plan includes one earning period, comprising the calendar years 2017-2019. The earnings criteria are Etteplan Group’s revenue increase and the development of Total Shareholder Return (TSR). The potential reward will be paid partly in the Company's shares and partly in cash. The proportion to be paid in cash is intended to cover taxes and tax-related costs arising from the reward to the key personnel. Approximately 20 people belong to the target group of the incentive plan. The rewards to be paid on the basis of the plan will correspond to the value of an approximate maximum total of 260,000 Etteplan Oyj shares (including also the proportion to be paid in cash). The shares to be paid out as potential rewards will be transferred from the shares held by the Company or shares acquired from the market, and therefore the incentive plan will have no diluting effect on the value of the share.

During the 2017 financial period nonrecurring rewards from previous share-based incentive plans for the Company’s President and CEO as well as key personnel were paid. Rewards were paid for two separate incentive plans, one directed at the President and CEO and one at the key personnel of the Company. Both incentive plans included one three year earning period comprising calendar years 2014-2016. The President and CEO of the Company was part of both incentive plans.

On the basis of the share-based incentive plans comprising calendar years 2014-2016 the President and CEO of the Company received as nonrecurring rewards on February 28, 2017 and April 28, 2017 a total of EUR 1,324,393.95 (including 90,634 shares and thereto related taxes and tax-related costs).

On the basis of the share-based incentive plan comprising calendar years 2014-2016 the members of the Management Group of the Company received as a nonrecurring reward on April 28, 2017 a total of EUR 1,144,104.36 (including 80,678 shares and thereto related taxes and tax-related costs).
