Alleroed, 2017-09-13 14:44 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In accordance with Matas A/S' Overall Guidelines for Incentive Pay, Matas A/S has today granted a total of 55,169 Performance Share Units ("PSUs"), comprising 19,746 PSUs to executive management and 35,423 PSUs to key employees in accordance with the company's long term incentive programme.

Subject to the achievement of two KPIs, weighted 50% each, the number of PSUs awarded may vary upon vesting in an interval of 75% and 150% of the original number of PSUs awarded. One KPI is based on the development in EBITDA and the other KPI is based on the development in revenue in the period up to and including the 2019/20 financial year.

The PSUs are awarded free, and assuming that the PSUs vest and do not lapse, each PSU entitles the holder to receive one Matas share at the time of vesting.

Subject to achieving the KPIs mentioned above, the PSUs will vest after the publication of the annual report for the financial year 2019/20.

At maximum achievement of the KPIs, the value of the PSUs at yesterday's closing price is DKK 7.22 m.
