The Annual General Meeting also decides on guidelines for remuneration to the board members. The meeting also decides on any amendments to the Articles of Association and elects the Board of Directors and, when necessary, auditors for the forthcoming period of office.

The components of the total remuneration vary for different grades of employees and are governed by industry patterns, qualifications and experience of the employee, responsibilities handled by him, his individual performances, etc.
The annual variable pay of senior managers is linked to the Company’s performance in general and their individual performance for the relevant year is measured against specific major performance areas which are closely aligned to the Company’s objectives.
Remuneration of employees largely consists of basic remuneration, perquisites, allowances and performance incentives.
