Remuneration determined by the Shareholders’ Meeting
The Shareholders’ Meeting of 26 March 2013 determined the remuneration of directors, providing for a fixed gross annual compensation of € 40,000 plus reimbursement of expenses incurred in relation to the position.
In light of the recommendations of Article 6.C.4 of the Corporate Governance Code, the remuneration of non-executive directors is not linked to the economic results achieved by the Company, nor do these directors benefit from share-based incentive plans.
No distinction is made in terms of remuneration for independent directors.
Compensation for participation in Board Committees
For the non-executive directors, on the basis of the resolutions adopted by the Board of Directors on 30 July 2013 in line with the previous resolutions of 27 July and 19 December 2011, an additional annual compensation is provided for participation in Board Committees:
- for the Control and Risk Committee, in relation to the increasingly important role that it plays in managing business risks, compensation of € 30,000 is envisaged for the Chairman and of € 20,000 for the other members;
- for the Remuneration Committee, compensation of € 15,000 for the Chairman and € 10,000 for the other members is respectively envisaged;
- for the Appointments Committee, compensation of € 10,000 for the Chairman and € 7,000 for the other members is respectively envisaged.
At its meeting on 11 March 2015, the Board of Directors decided to confirm the above compensation for the time being, acknowledging that it is in the low market bracket as indicated by the Remuneration Committee on the basis of the relevant benchmark figures.
No agreements are provided on severance indemnities for non-executive directors, or any agreements that provide for indemnity in the event of their resignation or dismissal without just cause, or if their working relationship is terminated due to a takeover bid.
