Remuneration principles and policy for the Board of Management

Wärtsilä's rewarding principles are designed to attract, retain, and motivate executives by providing compensation solutions that reward them for their performance in delivering business results.

The remuneration mix for the Board of Management consists of fixed and variable, performance related, pay. The objective is to have a good balance of rewarding elements. These comprise a fixed pay level guaranteed to be market competitive, supported by short- and long-term incentive schemes to drive company performance and to reward accordingly.

Fixed pay

The fixed remuneration paid to the President & CEO and to the other members of the Board of Management consists of a monthly base salary and fringe benefits. Base salaries are reviewed annually, taking into account the company’s and the individual’s performance and the market conditions.

The members of the Board of Management are provided private medical insurance and life insurance. They are also offered a company car benefit. Taking into consideration Wärtsilä's emphasis on environmental responsibility, hybrid or low emission cars are recommended.

The President & CEO and members of the Board of Management participate in company specific pension schemes, in addition to any statutory requirements. The nature of the supplementary pension schemes and retirement ages vary. They are generally based on the retirement scheme of the national social security system to which the person in question belongs and are either defined benefit or defined contribution based.

Variable pay

Short-term incentive schemes

The Group operates a bonus scheme, which is implemented globally and is designed to provide incentives for achievement of and reward for delivery of the short-term business plan. The bonus is based on the Group's financial targets, business specific targets, as well as agreed team and personal targets. Around 3,000 directors and managers are covered by this scheme.

For the President & CEO and the Board of Management, the payment is based on the achievement of the company's profitability and other financial targets for the financial year, as set by the Board of Directors. The short-term incentive opportunity is capped at 100% of the annual base salary for the President & CEO, and 65% of the annual base salary for the other members of the Board of Management. Bonuses are paid in cash shortly after year-end.

Wärtsilä's employees also participate in bonus or profit-based incentive schemes. These are applied in the majority of countries where Wärtsilä operates, in accordance with each country's legislation. Alternatively, they take the form of local bonus or profit-sharing schemes. All in all, 80% of the company's employees are covered by the Group's bonus schemes and various other performance-related incentive schemes.

Long-term incentive scheme

Around 100 senior managers, including the President & CEO and the Board of Management, participate in Wärtsilä's long-term incentive scheme. The objective of the long-term incentive scheme is to align the interests of senior management with those of Wärtsilä’s shareholders by creating a long-term equity-related interest for the participants. This promotes shareholder value creation and drives a long-term performance culture within Wärtsilä.

The long-term incentive scheme has a three-year performance period. Under the scheme, participants are awarded incentive rights. The value of an incentive right at the end of the performance period is based on share price development between the three-month period immediately preceding the performance period and the last three months of the performance period. The share price at the end of the period may include a value for some or all of the normal and any extraordinary dividends paid by Wärtsilä Corporation during the performance period.

Valuation of the incentive rights:

 
chart_svg_Remuneration_report.svg

To ensure an appropriate level of reward, an upper limit is set for each award cycle, capping the maximum value for each incentive right. The incentive rights are paid out in cash or in shares. The schemes launched as of 2019 will be paid out in shares to promote shareholder value creation by strengthening the alignment of senior management interests with those of Wärtsilä’s shareholders.

Share ownership policy

Each member of the Board of Management is expected to accumulate and, once achieved, maintain a share ownership in Wärtsilä that, at minimum, corresponds to the individual’s annual gross base salary.

Governance

The Board of Directors determines the levels and underlying principles of the fixed pay as well as the incentive schemes for the President & CEO and other members of the Board of Management. The Board of Directors also decides on other possible long-term incentive schemes for senior management, unless they are by law determined by the Annual General Meeting. The Board of Management decides on bonus schemes for other directors and managers.
