Remuneration for Members of the Board of Directors and Management Board
REMUNERATION FOR MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND MANAGEMENT BOARD
The Company has a clearly structured and objective remuneration programme for top and senior executives that ensures a connection between short-term goals and the amount of bonus payments. In addition to bonuses tied to short-term results, the Company has a motivation system based on the dynamics of the Company’s market capitalisation over a three-year period.
The Board of Directors approved a remuneration programme that is based on the appreciation of share value (SAR). The programme is an integral component of the Company’s long-term growth strategy and envisages the payment of remuneration to management for increasing the value of Gazprom Neft for shareholders over a certain period. The Company’s value is determined on the basis of its market capitalisation. Remuneration depends on certain market conditions and responsibilities that are taken into account when determining the amount payable to such employees. The remuneration is assessed at fair value at the end of each reporting period and paid at the end of the programme term.
Gazprom Neft provides directors and officers liability insurance. The policy covers all errors and omissions by directors and officials except for deliberate violations of legislation, fraud and other criminal activities. The total combined limit for all insurance policies and extensions is EUR 41 mn. The coverage territory includes the entire world.
REMUNERATION FOR MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The amount of remuneration for members of the Board of Directors depends on the Company’s financial results and is approved annually by shareholders. The ability of shareholders to engage in discretionary intervention eliminates the risk of potential abuse of the remuneration programme.
