EVLI PLC STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE June 29, 2022 AT 5:00 p.m. (EET/EEST)

The Board of Directors of Evli Plc has decided to establish a new share-based incentive plan for selected key employees of the group. The purpose of the plan is to align the interests of the company’s owners and key employees in order to increase the company’s value in the long term, and to commit key employees to implement the company's strategy, objectives and long-term interest, and to offer them a competitive incentive plan based on earning Evli Plc’s shares.

The plan consists of three one-year performance periods commencing on June 1, 2022, 2023 and 2024, and ending on May 31, 2023, 2024 and 2025.

In the plan, the target group has the opportunity to earn Evli Plc’s series B shares based on performance. The Board of Directors decides on the performance criteria and the performance targets at the beginning of the performance period. Potential rewards from the plan will be deferred and paid to participants approximately three years after the end of the performance period, in compliance with the legislation governing the financial sector. Payment of the rewards is followed by a one-year retention period, during which the awarded shares cannot be transferred by the key employee.

The potential rewards are based on the performance of the mutual funds and asset management, active investor communication, sales support and promoting responsibility factors. The value of the rewards to be paid corresponds to a maximum total of 78,000 series B shares of Evli Plc, including also the proportion to be paid in cash. Six key employees belong to the target group.

The potential reward will be paid partly in Evli Plc’s series B shares and partly in cash. The cash proportion of the reward is intended to cover taxes and statutory social security contributions arising from the reward to the key employee. As a rule, no reward will be paid if the key employee's employment or director contract terminates before the reward payment.
