To participate in the program, the participant must acquire shares in the company at a certain value, depending on the respective participants' seniority within the organization, and the allotment of performance shares requires that the performance criterion is met.
Due to the Performance Share Program, the Annual General Meeting resolved, in accordance with the Board's proposal, to issue a maximum of 377,000 warrants and transfer of the said warrants to participants in the program.
