Long-term share-based incentive program
The meeting resolved to introduce a long-term share-based incentive program (LTIP 2024), in accordance with the board’s proposal.

LTIP 2024 comprises of approximately 40 employees, including the group management of MEKO and certain other key employees in the group. Participation in LTIP 2024 requires a personal shareholding in MEKO. After the vesting period, about 3 years, the participants will be allocated shares in MEKO, provided that certain conditions are met. These conditions are linked to continued employment in the MEKO group, a personal shareholding in MEKO, and that certain performance targets are met. The performance targets refer to the total shareholder return on MEKO's share (TSR) and that certain target levels are achieved regarding growth in adjusted EBIT and growth in earnings per share (EPS). The maximum number of shares in MEKO that can be allocated under LTIP 2024 shall be limited to 380,000. The company intends to enter into an equity swap agreement with a bank to ensure the delivery of shares under the program.

Authorization to acquire and transfer of own shares
The meeting approved the board’ proposal and authorized the board, for the period until the next annual general meeting, on one or several occasions, to acquire such a maximum number of shares so that the company’s holding, at any time, does not exceed 10 per cent of all shares in the company.

The meeting also resolved to authorize the board, for the period until the next annual meeting, on one or several occasions, to transfers the company’s own shares in connection with or due to acquisition. All shares held by the company at the time of the board’s decision on transfer may be transferred.
