51. Management Board and Supervisory Board

Compensation of members of the Management Board in financial year 2014/15

Remuneration of the active members of the Management Board essentially consists of a fixed salary, short-term performance-based remuneration (short-term incentive and special bonuses) as well as the share-based payments (long-term incentive) granted in financial year 2014/15.

The amount of the short-term performance-based compensation for members of the Management Board essentially depends on the development of the key performance metrics EBIT, RoCE and like-for-like sales and also considers the attainment of individually set targets.

Remuneration of the active members of the Management Board in financial year 2014/15 amounted to €21.7 million (2013/14: €10.8 million). This includes €4.0 million (2013/14: €3.7 million) in fixed salaries, €10.0 million (2013/14: €3.4 million) in short-term performance-based remuneration, €7.5 million (2013/14: €3.4 million) in performance-based remuneration with a long-term incentive effect and €0.2 million (2013/14: €0.3 million) in other remuneration.

Performance-based compensation with a long-term incentive effect granted in financial year 2014/15 (sustainable performance plan version 2014) is shown at fair value as of the date granted. In financial year 2014/15, value changes resulted from the current tranches of performance-based payment programmes with a long-term incentive effect. The company’s expenses amounted to €0.92 million for Mr Koch, €0.02 million for Mr Boone, €0.76 million for Mr Frese, €0.77 million for Mr Haas and €0.02 million for Mr Hutmacher.

The target amount of the 2014/15 tranche for the members of the Management Board amounts to €5.365 million.

Other remuneration consists of non-cash benefits.
