Remuneration to members of senior management
Senior executives comprise the Group's senior management, including the President, the presidents of the three sub-groups, the Parent Company's Chief Financial Officer and the Parent Company's Controller.
All of these individuals have a total remuneration package consisting of a fixed basic salary, a bonus, a defined-contribution pension benefit and other benefits (mainly company car benefits). The bonus for senior executives who are employed by the Parent Company is based on the Group's profitability and growth and, for senior executives employed by the subsidiaries, on the subsidiaries' profitability.
Remuneration in 2012 followed the guidelines adopted by the 2012 Annual General Meeting.
The Remuneration Committee has evaluated the model for determining bonuses, the structure of which has been unchanged in recent years, and has found that the outcomes are in line with the Group's strategy for value creation and that the total remuneration package for senior executives is competitive.
The Board has therefore found no reason to change the model for bonuses.
Currently, there are no outstanding share or share-related incentive programs.
