IAR Systems Group AB strives for a remuneration system for the Chief Executive Officer, senior executives and other employees that is market-based and competitive. Remuneration to the Executive Management shall consist of fixed salary, variable salary, a long-term incentive scheme, pension and other customary benefits.
Fixed salary shall be market-based and individually differentiated on the basis of the individual's role, performance, results and responsibilities. As a rule, fixed salary is adjusted once a year. That portion of salary consisting of health and fitness, company car and lunch benefits, etc., is assigned a value in SEK and comprises part of fixed salary.
Variable salary shall be proportionate to the responsibilities and powers of the individual in question. Variable salary is based on the attainment of predetermined performance targets in the areas of profit, sales and "soft" individual goals. The amount of variable salary is based on the number of established targets that are met by the individual and on actual outcomes in relation to these targets. The maximum amount of variable salary may not exceed 50 percent of fixed salary for the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, and 30 per cent of fixed salary for the subsidiary presidents. The Board Chairman receives no variable salary. In addition, the Board shall be authorized to award variable salary on a discretionary basis to senior executives or subsidiary presidents in excess of that described above when deemed appropriate. Such remuneration may not exceed 50 percent of fixed salary.
The Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer are covered by a pension plan corresponding to the cost of the ITP plan, but with a retirement age of 60 years that makes the premium higher than that for a retirement age of 65 years. Other employees are covered by a pension plan corresponding to the cost of the ITP plan.
Other terms of employment
Employment contracts can be terminated with a notice period of between three and six months. Monthly salary is payable throughout the entire notice period. If employment is terminated by the company, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer are entitled to a 12-month notice period and termination benefits corresponding to a maximum of six monthly salaries. If employment is terminated by the Chief Executive Officer or Chief Financial Officer, the notice period is six months. Aside from the above, there are no agreements for additional termination benefits for senior executives.
