51. Management Board and Supervisory Board

Compensation of members of the Management Board in financial year 2015/16

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 2015/16.

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

Remuneration of the active members of the Management Board in financial year 2015/16 amounted to €19.7 million (2014/15: €21.7 million). This includes €4.6 million (2014/15: €4.0 million) in fixed salaries, €4.7 million (2014/15: €10.0 million) in short-term performance-based remuneration, €10.1 million (2014/15: €7.5 million) in performance-based remuneration with a long-term incentive effect and €0.3 million (2014/15: €0.2 million) in other remuneration.

Performance-based compensation with a long-term incentive effect granted in financial year 2015/16 (sustainable performance plan version 2014) is shown at fair value as of the date granted. In financial year 2015/16, value changes resulted from the current tranches of performance-based payment programmes with a long-term incentive effect. The company’s expenses amounted to €2.26 million for Mr Koch, €0.30 million for Mr Boone, €1.58 million for Mr Haas and €1.45 million each for Mr Frese and Mr Hutmacher.

The target amount of the 2015/16 tranche for the members of the Management Board amounts to €6.2 million.

Other remuneration consists of non-cash benefits.
