COMPENSATION REPORT

3. Responsibilities and definition process

3.1 Approval model of the General Meeting

Article 29e of the Articles of Association Emmi AG defines the approval model. Each year, the General Meeting approves in a separate and binding manner the proposals put forward by the Board of Directors with regard to:

  • the maximum total amount of remuneration of the Board of Directors and the Agricultural Council for the current financial year
  • the maximum total amount of fixed remuneration for Group Management for the following financial year
  • the total amount of variable remuneration for Group Management for the previous financial year

The following approval model clarifies which remuneration components and for which period the shareholders will vote on at the 2018 Ordinary General Meeting.

3.2 Decision-making process

Remuneration system: The Board of Directors determines the principles of the remuneration system for the Board of Directors and Group Management as part of its general overall management. The Personnel and Compensation Committee undertakes its elaboration, regular review and assessment. In this respect, it supports the Board of Directors in determining the remuneration system. External experts would only be involved at most in a fundamental restructuring of the remuneration system.

Remuneration amounts: The Personnel and Compensation Committee submits a proposal for the remuneration of the members of the Board of Directors to the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors decides annually on its remuneration and submits the maximum total remuneration to the General Meeting for approval.

The remuneration for the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the members of the Agricultural Council, the CEO and the other members of Group Management is decided annually by the Personnel and Compensation Committee. The Board of Directors proposes the total amounts of the relevant remuneration to the General Meeting for approval.

3.3 Personnel and Compensation Committee

With the exception of the remuneration of the members of the Board of Directors, the Personnel and Compensation Committee decides on remuneration. It defines the remuneration of the Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO (associate member) in compliance with the rules on abstention.

Composition of the Personnel and Compensation Committee
