Principles for profit participation by the Management Board
A variable income component was made available to the members of the Management Board in the form of bonus agreements if they meet certain defined prerequisites for entitlement. This bonus will be provided as a one-time payment based on the earnings situation. The basis for determining the size of the bonus is the return on equity based on the IFRS consolidated financial statements of UNIQA Versicherungen AG. The Management Board reports to the Committee for Board Affairs on the balance sheet work involving the development of the Group’s reserves. The Committee for Board Affairs can take changes to the reserves into account in determining the size of the bonus payments and establish an adjusted Group return on equity. No changes with respect to the previous year were made to the principles of the profit participation. No boni were paid out for the 2011 financial year.
Principles for the pension scheme provided by the company for the Management Board and its prerequisites
Retirement pensions, a pension for occupational disability as well as a widow’s and orphan’s pension have been established, whereby the pension entitlements are managed by Valida Pension AG. The retirement pension is due in principle upon meeting the requirements for the old-age pension according to the General Social Security Act. In the event of an earlier retirement, the pension claim is reduced. For the occupational disability pension and the pension for surviving dependants, basic amounts are provided as a minimum pension.
Principles for vested rights and claims of the Management Board of the company in the event of termination of their position
Severance payments have been agreed upon based partially on the provisions of the Salaried Employee Act. The agreed-upon termination packages on the occasion of premature termination of the work of the Board member conform with the criteria of rule 27a of the Austrian Code of Corporate Governance. The benefits are fundamentally retained in the event of termination of membership on the Management Board; however, a reduction rule applies.
