Evli Bank Plc's Board of Directors has decided to establish two new share-based incentive plans

EVLI BANK PLC’S STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE FEBRUARY 12, 2021, AT 10.00 AM (EET/EEST)

Evli Bank Plc's Board of Directors has resolved to establish two new share-based incentive plans for selected key personnel of the company. Rewards paid based on the plans will be paid in Evli shares. 

Under the Restricted Share Plan, the total number of shares to be paid as a reward will not exceed a total of 118,000 B-shares (gross amount before deduction of applicable withholding tax). The share-based incentive plan will be awarded in one installment in February 2021. The prerequisite for reward award and reward payment is that a participant's employment or service is in force. In addition, the Board of Directors may consider the participant's work contribution and the company's financial performance. The installment has a four-year deferral period. Ownership rights to the shares subject to the reward are transferred to the beneficiary only after the end of the deferral period in February 2025. The reward shares will be subject to a one-year transfer restriction. 

Under the Performance Share Plan, the total number of shares to be paid as a reward will not exceed a total of 120,000 B shares (gross amount before deduction of applicable withholding tax). The reward is awarded in installments during 2021–2025 when the required performance criteria are met. In addition to meeting the performance criteria, the prerequisite for reward payment is that a participant's employment or service is in force. In addition, the Board of Directors may consider company's financial performance at the time of reward payment. Each installment has a three-year deferral period. Ownership rights to the shares subject to the reward are transferred to the beneficiary only after the end of the deferral period. The shares paid as a reward will be subject to a one-year transfer restriction. 

The purpose of the share-based incentive plans is to support Evli's strategy and to align the goals of shareholders and selected key personnel to increase Evli's long-term value. In addition, the goal is to increase the commitment of key personnel to the company and provide them with a competitive compensation plan.
