Resolution to implement a long-term incentive scheme
The Annual General Meeting resolved, in accordance with the Board’s proposal, to introduce a multiyear incentive program (“Program 9”) consisting of employee stock options to be transferred to employees and consultants within the IRRAS Group (the “Employee Stock Options”). The Employee Stock Options are granted free of charge to the participants no later than 36 months after the Annual General Meeting. The Employee Stock Options shall vest one-third annually from the grant date.
The Employee Stock Options, after being vested in accordance with the above, can be exercised for acquisition of ordinary shares from the third anniversary of the grant date up until the seventh anniversary of the grant date.
Each Employee Stock Option granted entitles the holder to acquire one ordinary share in the Company at a strike price corresponding to 110 percent of the average of the volume-weighted share price of the Company’s share measured over ten trading days prior to the grant date.
The principle for allocation is that each participant is granted a yearly allocation as a percentage of the base salary. Allocation is limited to not more than 500 per cent of the yearly base salary for the CEO, not more than 200 per cent of the yearly base salary to members of global senior management and not more than 100 per cent of the yearly base salary for other employees and consultants.
The number of Employee Stock Options under the Programs, including any options outstanding according to previous incentive programs, shall be limited in such way that the options at full dilution at any given time shall not exceed a dilution of 10 per cent of the total number of shares in the Company calculated on a fully diluted basis.
The Annual General Meeting resolved to authorize the Board to resolve on a directed issue and repurchase of a maximum of 88,312,600 class C shares in order to secure the Company’s commitments according to all of the Company’s outstanding incentive programs.
