The aggregate annual remuneration to be paid to a Supervisory Board member may not exceed USD 325,000.

Any Supervisory Board member’s remuneration for any past quarter may be reduced by:

  • 10%, if he or she missed up to 25% of Supervisory Board meetings and absentee voting in that quarter;
  • 30%, if he or she missed more than 25% and up to 50% of Supervisory Board meetings and absentee voting sessions in that quarter;
