Incentive Programmes 

Long-term incentive programme LTIP 2015

The 2015 AGM decided on a long-term share-based incentive programme for a maximum of 20 employees including the CEO, members of GET and other key personnel within the Group. The programme requires that the participant invests in Gunnebo shares within LTIP 2015 ("Savings shares"). The Savings shares must be kept for a three-year earning period from 1 June 2015 to 1 June 2018. Providing that the participant still owns the shares and is still employed within the Group at the end of the earning period, the participant is entitled to receive one Gunnebo share free of charge for each Savings share he/she has invested in ("Matching shares"). Furthermore, the company's CEO is entitled to receive a maximum of four Gunnebo shares per Savings share, and the other participants are entitled to receive up to three Gunnebo shares if certain performance goals have been met ("Performance Shares"). Allocation of Performance shares will be based on minimum and maximum levels of earnings per share during the vesting period as determined by the Board. The minimum and maximum levels have been set at SEK 8.00 and SEK 14.00 accumulated earnings per share over a three-year period.

The expected pay-out under this programme is that matching shares of 103,580 can be allotted depending on the remaining employment condition being fulfilled by the participants and that the saving shares have remained in the employee’s securities account during the whole vesting period.

The cost of the LTIP 2015 is based on the share price at grant date times the expected number of shares to be issued and is spread over the vesting period from 1 June 2015 to 1 June 2018. The share price at grant date was determined to be SEK 37.80 and excludes the present value of expected dividends during the period up until the shares are distributed, in accordance with the terms of the programme.

In July 2018, 103,580 shares were transferred to the participants in the LTIP 2015 program. The share price at this date was SEK 28.10. Amounts expensed in 2018 amounted to MSEK 0 (+2.2) including social charges of which MSEK 0 (+1.8) related to GET members. The provision in the balance sheet amounted to MSEK 0 (4.2) including social charges.
