Continuation of incentive programme


Schouw & Co. has for a number of years operated a share-based incentive programme for the purpose of promoting value creation in Schouw & Co. by aligning the interests of the individuals comprised by the programme and the company's shareholders. Under the programme, the Board of Directors has resolved to award 326,000 share options on the following terms:

The members of the Management Board of Schouw & Co., President Jens Bjerg Sørensen and Vice President Peter Kjær, will be granted 35,000 and 12,000 share options, respectively. Other senior executives, including managers of subsidiaries, comprising 26 persons, will be granted a total of 279,000 share options.

The options are exercisable during a period of 12 months following the publication of the Schouw & Co. Group's Annual Report for the 2021 financial year.

Each share option entitles the holder to purchase one Schouw & Co. share of DKK 10 nominal value. The exercise price is equal to the average official closing share price during the first five business days after the publication of the Schouw & Co. Group’s Annual Report for the 2018 financial year (of DKK 510.30), plus a premium of 3% p.a. with effect from .

The new options have an aggregate theoretical market value of approximately DKK 23.3 million, calculated on the basis of the Black & Scholes model using 12-month historical volatility (29.2%) based on daily average prices, a risk-free interest rate (-0.52% p.a.) and the share price (DKK 510.30) at the date of issue.
