DNA to set up matching shares plan for its personnel
DNA PLC STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 21 DECEMBER 2018 11:15 am (EET)
The Board of Directors of DNA Plc has decided on the establishment of a matching shares plan for all DNA personnel. The purpose of the plan is to steer the activities of personnel towards the attainment of strategic objectives, as well as to improve the long-term commitment of personnel and offer incentives in the form of potential increase in share value.
Participation in the matching shares plan is voluntary. The first saving period in 2019-2020 begins in April 2019 and will run until March 2020. Each employee may participate in one saving period at a time, with the saved shares purchased quarterly at market value after the publication of financial results. Participants may purchase shares up to a value of 500 euros per month. The matching shares issued for the saved shares will be paid in a single instalment at the end of the holding period, with DNA issuing each participant one matching share for two purchased shares. The Board of Directors of DNA will decide annually on possible new saving periods and their terms.
