HELSINKI , May 28, 2014 (press release) – MUNKSJÖ OYJ, STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 28 May 2014 at 1.30 pm CEST

Oyj to establish a long-term share-based incentive programme for senior executives and other key personnel

Munksjö’s Board of Directors has approved a long-term share-based incentive programme for Munksjö’s senior executives and other key personnel, approximately 35 persons. The objective of this plan is to align the company’s financial goals with the objectives of its shareholders and management by an incentive plan based on share ownership in the company.

The share plan starts in 2014 with a three-year (2014-2016) performance period and potential rewards will be paid after the end of the performance period. Participation requires an initial investment (saving shares) in Munksjö shares by each participant. A maximum number of saving shares is set for each participant. The plan offers a right for a participant to receive one matching share for each saving share and an opportunity to receive a maximum of five performance shares if the performance targets set by the Board are attained. The targets are based on the Group’s dividend capacity and share price development compared to a peer group of similar listed companies.

The potential incentives will be paid in Munksjö shares. The program has a cap maximising the gross reward to an amount corresponding to 300 per cent of the participant’s annual base salary. If the targets set for the program are met in full and the maximum number of saving shares are invested, the maximum gross value of the program will correspond to approximately 500,000 shares.
