dividend. Should the AGM decide in favour of the proposal, payment of the

Principles for remuneration to senior executives (Item 15)
The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to
determine the following principles for remuneration to senior executives.

These principles concern remuneration and other terms of employment for members
of the Gunnebo group management team and are valid for employment agreements
entered into after the approval of the principles by the Annual General Meeting
and for changes to existing employments agreements made thereafter. The proposal
is in compliance with the principles of previous years.

Gunnebo shall offer a level of remuneration and other terms of employment which
enables the company to recruit and retain senior executives. The overall
principles for salary and other remuneration to senior executives are thus that
compensation shall be competitive and on market level.

The total remuneration to senior executives shall consist of fixed salary,
variable remuneration including long-term incentive programmes, pension and
other benefits.

The fixed salary shall take into account the individual’s position, competence,
areas of responsibility, performance and experience and shall normally be
reviewed on an annual basis. The fixed salary shall constitute the basis for the
calculation of the variable salary.

The variable salary shall be dependent upon the individual’s achievement of
specific quantitative financial business objectives and shall not exceed 50% of
the fixed salary.

The Board shall, for each financial year, evaluate whether a share or share
-price related incentive programme shall be proposed to the Annual General
Meeting or not. It is the Annual General Meeting who decides upon such
programmes. The Board has decided not to propose to the Annual General Meeting
to decide upon an incentive programme.

Pension premiums for senior executives resident in Sweden are paid in accordance
with a premium based plan. The premiums may, depending on age and salary level,
amount to a maximum of 35% of the base salary. Senior executives resident
outside Sweden may be offered pension benefits that are competitive in the
countries where the senior executives are resident, preferably defined
-contribution plans. The retirement age shall be 65.

Additional benefits consist of company car and private health insurance.

For senior executives resident in Sweden, the termination period in case of
termination by the company shall be 12 months and 6 months in case of
termination by the senior executive. Severance pay is not applied. Senior
executives resident outside Sweden may be offered notice periods for termination
that are competitive in the countries where the senior executives are resident,
preferably notice periods comparable to the notice periods applied to senior
executives resident in Sweden.

The Board reserves the right to deviate from these principles if special reasons
for such a deviation exist in any individual case.

Remuneration to senior executives already decided which has not become due for
payment at the Annual General Meeting 2014 falls within the frames of these
principles, except that the CEO is entitled to 12 months’ severance pay in case
of termination by the company.

No deviations from the principles approved by the Annual General Meeting 2013
have been made.

The shareholders’ right to require information
The Board of Directors and the CEO shall at the annual general meeting, upon
request by a shareholder, provide information in respect of any circumstances
which may affect the assessment of a matter on the agenda, and any circumstances
which may affect the assessment of the company’s financial position. Such
information may be provided where the Board of Directors believes that such may
take place without significant harm to the company. The duty to provide
information also applies to the company’s relationship to other group companies
as well as the group accounts and the abovementioned circumstances regarding
subsidiaries.

regarding the application of the principles for remuneration to senior
