These guidelines concern remuneration and other terms of employment for the Ferronordic’s executive management. The guidelines apply to employment agreements made after the approval of these guidelines by the meeting and to amendments to existing employment agreements made thereafter.
Remuneration to executives shall be based on market terms in the markets where Ferronordic operates and the environment in which the individual executive is working. In addition, remuneration shall be competitive in order to enable Ferronordic to attract and retain competent executives.
Fixed salaries are established individually based on the criteria specified above, as well as the individual executive’s areas of responsibility and performance. For expatriates with salaries in rubles the fixed salaries can be adjusted to reflect changes in fore exchange rates.
Executives may receive variable salaries in addition to fixed salaries. Variable salaries shall be paid upon fulfilment of predetermined and measurable performance criteria, primarily based on the development of the group as a whole and/or the development of the part of the group’s operations for which the individual in question is responsible. As regards the CEO, the variable salary may not exceed 100% of the fixed salary. As regards other executives, the variable salary may not exceed 50% of the fixed salary. Exceptions are permitted for executives whose duties predominantly consist of sales, for whom the variable salary may not exceed 200% of the fixed salary.
Executives are entitled to customary non-monetary benefits such as company cars and company health insurance. In addition to these benefits company housing and other benefits can be offered on an individual basis, such housing allowances and school/kindergarten allowances for expatriates.
In addition to those pension benefits that executives are entitled to according to law, executives may be offered pension benefits that are competitive in the country where the individual in question is or has been a resident or to which the individual has a relevant connection. Pension plans shall be defined contribution plans without guaranteed level of pension.
