Long-term incentive program 2023 (LTIP 2023)
Participants will, after a qualifying period and assuming an investment of their own in Eltel Shares, be given the opportunity to, without consideration, receive allotment of Eltel Shares (defined below) and exercise options issued by the company. The number of allotted Eltel Shares and options will depend on the number of Eltel Shares that they have purchased themselves and on the fulfilment of certain performance requirements. Eltel Shares are ordinary shares in the company (“Eltel Shares”). The term of LTIP 2023 is more than three years.
Basic features of LTIP 2023
LTIP 2023 will be directed towards a maximum of thirteen (13) senior executives and other key individuals in the company. The participants are based in Sweden and other countries where the Eltel Group is active. Participation in the LTIP 2023 assumes that the participant acquires and locks a certain minimum and maximum, respectively, number of Eltel Shares into LTIP 2023 (“Savings Shares”). Savings Shares shall be newly acquired Eltel Shares.
For each acquired Savings Share, the participant shall be entitled to, after a certain vesting period (defined below), provided continued employment and dependent on the fulfilment of certain performance requirements during the financial years 2023–2025, receive allotment of Eltel Shares (”Performance Shares”) and exercise options issued by the company (“Performance Options”).
The performance requirements are linked to certain financial key figures. The participant shall not pay any consideration for the allotted Performance Shares and Performance Options.
The participant shall have the right to exercise the Performance Options commencing on the day after the end of the vesting period and during two weeks thereafter (“Exercise Period”). The exercise price when the participant exercises the Performance Option shall correspond to 120% of the volume-weighted average price according to Nasdaq Stockholm’s official price list for the Eltel Share during the first ten trading days that directly follows the Annual General Meeting 2023 (the “Purchase Price”). Customary recalculation of the Purchase Price as well as of the number of Eltel Shares that each Performance Option corresponds to may occur in certain situations. The exercise of the Performance Options may be made by using so called net strike.
