THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF RAPALA VMC CORPORATION DECIDED ON SHARE-BASED INCENTIVE PLANS

The Board of Directors of Rapala VMC Corporation has decided to establish two new share-based incentive plans. The aim of the plans is to align the objectives of the shareholders and the plan participants for increasing the value of the company in the long-term, to retain the participants at the company and to offer them competitive incentive schemes that are based on earning and accumulating shares.

Matching Share Plan 2021–2023 for the President and CEO
The President and CEO’s Matching Share Plan 2021–2023 consists of one matching period, covering the financial years of 2021–2023. In the plan, the President and CEO (CEO) is given an opportunity to receive matching shares for his personal investment in Rapala VMC Corporation shares. The reward based on the plan will be paid after the end of the matching period.
The reward will be paid partly in Rapala VMC Corporation shares and partly in cash. The cash proportion of the reward is intended for covering taxes and tax-related expenses arising from the reward to the CEO. In general, no reward is paid if the CEO’s director contract terminates before the reward payment.
The reward to be paid on the basis of the CEO plan correspond to the value of a maximum total of 28 800 Rapala VMC Corporation shares, including also the proportion to be paid in cash.

Performance Share Plan 2021—2023 for Key Employees
The key employees’ Performance Share Plan 2021—2023 includes one three-year performance period, covering the financial years 2021—2023. The potential reward from the performance period will be based on the Group’s financial performance criteria, which will be measured during the financial year 2023 and the Company’s share price criterion which will be measured during 2023. The financial performance criteria for the performance period are the Group Product Sales in 2023, the Group’s Comparable Earnings before Interest and Taxes (comparable EBIT) in 2023 and the Group’s Average Working Capital Ratio in 2023.
The rewards to be paid on the basis of the key employee plan correspond to the value of an approximate maximum total of 800 000 Rapala VMC Corporation shares including also the proportion to be paid in cash. The potential rewards from the performance period 2021—2023 will be paid partly in the Company’s shares and partly in cash in 2024. The cash proportion is intended to cover taxes and tax-related costs arising from the reward to the participant. In general, no reward will be paid, if a participant´s employment or service terminates before the reward payment.
The key employee’s Performance Share Plan is directed to approximately 19 individuals, including the President and CEO and other members of the Executive Committee of the Group.

Statkraft bygger tre vindparker i Chile – verdens sørligste land12.4.2021 12:00:00 CEST | Pressemelding

(Santiago/Oslo, 12. april 2021) Statkraft skal for første gang bygge vindkraftverk i Chile, og øker dermed sin produksjonskapasitet for fornybar energi i det søramerikanske landet, hvor etterspørselen etter vann-, vind- og solkraft er stigende. Sammen med selskapets eksisterende vannkraftportefølje i Chile, vil Statkraft nå en produksjonskapasitet på 366 megawatt (MW) innen utgangen av 2023. Det 102 MW store vindprosjektet Torsa består av tre vindparker, med til sammen 19 turbiner fra den tyske produsenten Nordex. Samlet forventes vindparkene å produsere mer enn 300 GWh med fornybar energi i året – nok til å forsyne 100.000 gjennomsnittlige chilenske hjem. Prosjektet ligger i O’Higgins-regionen, 124 kilometer sør for hovedstaden Santiago. - Disse tre vindparkene øker ikke bare vår produksjonskapasitet i Chile; de utvider vår fornybarportefølje til å for første gang omfatte vindkraft. Framover planlegger vi også å inkludere solkraft i produksjonsmiksen vår, sier Statkrafts konserndirekt
