The Annual General Meeting resolved, in accordance with the Board of Directors’ proposal, to introduce a long-term performance share program (LTIP 2022) aimed at certain key employees. The intention with LTIP 2022 is to encourage personal long-term ownership in Mycronic as well as to increase and enhance its ability to recruit, retain and motivate employees. The intention is also to use LTIP 2022 to unite the interest of the employees with the interests of shareholders.

The proposal was divided into four items:

A. Terms of LTIP 2022

CEO (maximum 1 person)

Management Group (maximum 10 persons)                                                                                     

Other key employees (maximum 59 persons)

Participants will, after a qualification period, be given the opportunity to receive allotment of ordinary shares in Mycronic at no consideration. The number of shares allotted will depend on fulfilment of certain performance targets. Allotment of shares within LTIP 2022 will be made during a limited period of time following the Annual General Meeting 2025. The period up to this date is referred to as the qualification period. A condition for the participant to receive allotment of shares is that the participant remains an employee of the Mycronic Group during the full qualification period up until allotment. Allotment of shares also requires that the EPS performance targets are fulfilled.

The intention is to launch LTIP 2022 as soon as practically possible after the Annual General Meeting 2022. The term of LTIP 2022 is more than three years. LTIP 2022 will comprise a maximum of 125,500 shares in total, which corresponds to 0.13 percent of the total outstanding shares and votes in the company on a fully diluted basis.
