The intention with LTIP 2023 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 2023 to unite the interest of the employees with the interests of shareholders.

The proposal was divided into four items:

A. Terms of LTIP 2023

Other key employees (maximum 74 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 2023 will be made during a limited period of time following the Annual General Meeting 2026. 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 2023 as soon as practically possible after the Annual General Meeting 2023. The term of LTIP 2023 is more than three years.
