The Company's guidelines for determining remunerations to the CEO and other executive personnel should at all times support prevailing strategy and values in the Company. These guidelines shall be communicated to the annual general meeting, and shall include the main principles for the Company's remuneration policy as well as contribute to align the interests of shareholders and executive personnel. Performance-related remuneration of the executive management shall be linked to value creation for shareholders or to the Company's profit over time. Such arrangements are meant to incentivise performance and shall be based on quantifiable factors the employee may influence, and then be rewarded accordingly. There should be a cap on performance-related remuneration.
The salary and remuneration of the CEO is determined by the Board in a board meeting. Based on the guidelines communicated to the annual general meeting, the Board shall produce a statement in the Company's report on corporate governance on how the salary and remuneration of the Company's CEO is determined in addition to the remuneration strategy of the executive management, as well as provide an account of the Company's remuneration policy the previous financial year. This statement shall be considered by the Company's annual general meeting before a final resolution is made by the Board.
