5. Compensation, shareholdings, loans
Employment contracts and the “Compensation Regulations for the Board of Directors of PWH” provide the framework for the compensation and stock option plans of the BoD, GM and the senior managers of the subsidiaries. In the case of services provided by members of the BoD in request of the company that are clearly outside the usual scope of Board activities, compensation is determined by the Board of Directors. Members can be compensated for their individual activities on the basis of effective time invested.

The regulations mentioned as well as a detailed list of compensation granted to the members of the BoD and GM can be found on the website (Investor Relations – Corporate Governance), in note 26 of the Consolidated Group Financial Statements and in note 7 of the Financial Statement of PW Holding.
