Tieto’s Board of Directors has approved two new share-based incentive plans for key employees of Tieto and its subsidiaries, a Performance Share Plan 2018–2020 and a Restricted Share Plan 2018–2020. Tieto will nominate approximately 250 key employees, including Tieto’s Group Leadership, to the plans.
The potential rewards from these new incentive plans will be paid partly in the company’s shares and partly in cash in 2021. The cash proportion is intended to cover taxes and tax-related costs arising from the reward. As a rule, no reward will be paid, if a participant´s employment or service ends before the reward payment. Share rewards to be delivered to the participants under the plan will consist of shares to be acquired from the market. Thus, the incentive plan will have no dilutive effect. The total number of rewards to be paid based on new long-term incentive plans corresponds to the value of approximate maximum on 540 000 Tieto share, including the proportion to be paid in cash.
Performance Share Plan 2018–2020
The potential reward from the Performance Share Plan 2018–2020 will be based on the relative Total Shareholder Return of Tieto share (TSR), strategic target related to Tieto’s growth and on Tieto’s Earnings per Share (EPS). Performance will be measured during 2018–2020. The rewards to be paid on the basis of the Performance Share Plan 2018–2020 correspond to the value of an approximate maximum of 430 000 Tieto shares, including the proportion to be paid in cash.
Restricted Share Plan 2018–2020
The reward from the Restricted Share Plan 2018–2020 will be based on a valid employment or director agreement of a key employee upon the reward payment. The reward will be paid after the end of a three-year vesting period 2018–2020. The rewards to be paid on the basis of the Restricted Share Plan 2018–2020 correspond to the value of an approximate maximum of 110 0000 Tieto shares, including the proportion to be paid in cash.
