The Board of Directors of Oriola-KD Corporation Resolved on Key Personnel Long-
Term Incentive Plan
The Board of Directors of Oriola-KD Corporation has resolved to establish a new
share-based incentive plan directed to the Group key personnel (the Plan). The
aim of the Plan is to combine the objectives of the shareholders and the key
personnel in order to increase the value of the Company in the long-term, to
retain the key personnel in the Company, and to offer them a competitive reward
plan based on performance and accumulation of share ownership in the Company.
The aim is also to harmonize the Company's incentive plans into a One-Platform

Long-Term Incentive Plan are combined.
The Plan includes three performance periods, calendar years 2016, 2017 and
2018, and three vesting periods, calendar years 2017, 2018 and 2019,

Group's Earnings per Share (EPS). The rewards to be paid on the basis of the
performance period 2016 correspond to the value of an approximate maximum total
of 800,000 Oriola-KD Corporation Class B shares (including also the proportion
to be paid in cash). The potential reward will be paid partly in Oriola-KD
Corporation Class B shares and partly in cash in 2018. The cash proportion is
intended to cover taxes and tax-related costs arising from the reward to a key
The member of the Group Management Team must hold 50 per cent of the net shares
given on the basis of the entire Plan, until his or her shareholding in the
Company in total equals the value of his or her gross annual salary. Such number
of shares must be held as long as the key person holds a position as a Group
Management Team member.
