Uponor Board resolves to continue key management incentive plan for 20232025

The Board of Directors of Uponor Corporation has resolved to continue the key management Performance Share Plan mechanism by launching the Performance Share Plan 2023–2025. Approximately 50 Group key managers, including the President and CEO and other members of the Executive Committee, belong to the target group of the new plan.

The aim of the plan is to align the objectives of the shareholders and the key managers in order to support the long-term value creation of the Uponor Group, to engage and commit the key managers to Uponor, and to offer them a competitive reward plan that is based on earning and accumulating Uponor shares.

The plan covers the financial years 2023–2025. It offers the participants an opportunity to earn Uponor shares as a reward for achieving performance targets, which the Board has established for the 3-year performance period, based on 3-year Cumulative EBITDA or EBITDA-based Intrinsic Value, as well as a 3-year performance criterion related to the Group’s sustainability targets.

The potential reward will be paid in 2026, partly in company shares and partly in cash. The cash proportion is intended to cover taxes and tax-related costs which the recipient incurs due to the reward. No reward will be paid if the participant’s employment or service terminates before the reward payment.

If the required performance targets are attained in full, the payable rewards will correspond to the value of a maximum total of 720,000 Uponor Corporation shares, including the proportion to be paid in cash.

Continuous shareholding requirement is applied to the President and CEO and other members of the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee members must hold 100 per cent of the shares received on the basis of the plan until the value of their shareholding in Uponor corresponds to the value of their annual gross salary.
