Directed share issue under the management share-based incentive plan for 2012-2014

Based on the authorisation granted by the Annual General Meeting on 15 March 2012, Uponor’s Board of Directors has decided on a directed share issue to the company’s management, as part of the long-term share-based incentive plan 2012-2104. Based on the Board’s decision, Uponor will transfer, without payment, 42,818 of the company’s own shares to 10 key employees, as specified in the rules of the plan.

Share-based incentive programmes are part of Uponor’s total management remuneration package, with the purpose of incentivising and motivating management and aligning the targets of management with shareholders.

The reward in the LTI Plan 2012-2014 consisted of the following parts:
1) The matching share incentive based on own investment with a three year vesting period
2) A performance share plan that depended on the company’s earnings performance over a three-year performance period.
Further details are available in the stock exchange release announced on 2 March 2012.

No new shares will be issued in connection with the plan and therefore the plan will have no diluting effect. Prior to this directed issue, Uponor held a total of 140,378 of its own shares, of which 97,560 remain.
