The maximum number of performance shares allocated is 123,487, of which 25,330 pertain to Group Executive Management.

The cost of the programme is DKK 44 mill. in case of full vesting, based on the average closing share price from 10-17 February 2017 (the first five trading days after publication of the Annual Report).

Subject to approval of updated incentive guidelines by the Annual General Meeting on 30 March 2017, the maximum number of performance shares allocated to Group Executive Management will increase by 2,668, representing a value of DKK 1 mill. in case of full vesting.
The primary purpose of the programme is to retain key staff and to align the interests of shareholders and participants by rewarding performance in accordance with the strategy and the long-term financial targets.
