Guidelines for remuneration of senior executives
In brief, the AGM resolved that the Company shall offer a market-based total compensation package that enables the recruitment and retention of senior executives. Remuneration to senior executives consists of a fixed salary, variable pay, pension provisions, and other benefits such as car benefits. The variable pay is based on achieved operational objectives; the wide majority of which correspond to financial goals. The CEO’s variable pay shall not exceed 30% of the fixed salary. For other senior executives, variable pay may not exceed two monthly salaries.
AGM participants appointed Hampus Ericsson and Erik Sjöström as representatives of Cybercom’s two largest shareholders (JCE Group AB and Skandia Liv), and John Örtengren, representative for minority shareholders. AGM participants also appointed Jon Risfelt, board chairman, as member and convener of the committee; Risfelt does not have voting rights. Unless Nomination Committee members agree otherwise, the chairman shall be the shareholder who represents the most votes.
