ACR: Employee share option plan 2022

11:34 / 16 June 2022 Axactor Press release

In accordance with the authorization granted by the AGM on 21 April 2022, the
board of directors of Axactor ASA has decided to establish an Employee Share
Option Plan (ESOP) for senior executives and key personnel employed by the
Axactor group. The plan encompasses up to 5 500 000 shares. The company's
liability with respect to the scheme will be met through holdings of treasury
shares or by issuing new shares.

Under the ESOP, participants will receive share options, which, if certain
predefined performance criteria are met within a performance period, can be
exercised by paying the predefined strike price. The strike price is set as the
average share price of the last 30 days prior to grant. One share option gives a
contingent entitlement to one share after paying the strike price.

The following criteria determine the award of options during the three-year
performance period:

· 1/3: employed when the performance period ends
· 1/3: share price development equal to or better than peers
· 1/3: return on equity meeting target set by the board of directors

Vesting of share options presumes that the individual is an employee of Axactor
group. The total gain from exercised options during one calendar year shall not
exceed 200 per cent of the participant's base salary at grant. The number of
options will be adjusted in the event of a dividend payout to preserve, but not
increase, the value of the share option allocation.

The ESOP goes into effect on 15 June 2022 and the share options will be vested
after three years.
