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 and other executives and to prepare matters related to the reward schemes for employees.
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 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.

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.

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. The potential nonrecurring reward of the incentive plan will be paid after the earning period in 2020.
During the 2018 financial period no nonrecurring rewards from share'based incentive plans were paid for either the Company's President and CEP or key personnel.
