Remuneration and compensation policy


The Annual General Meeting of Stockholders, conducted on 18.06.2015, adopted Amended and Restated Regulations of Remunerations and Compensations due to the Board of Directors at OAO IDGC of Urals. In compliance with the Regulations remunerations comprise a lump sum payment for participation in the Board activities and additional payment from the net profit if Company’s market value increases during the Board’s tenure.

The exact amount of remunerations due to each Board member for the service shall be calculated, factoring in the total number of Board meetings conducted during the previous corporate year and number of attended meetings. The basic amount of remunerations (Rbase) shall be set upon the annual RAS revenues of the Company. The following increments shall be added to the remunerations: 30% for the Board Chair, 20% for the Chair of a Board Committee, 10% for a membership in a Board Committee. Increments for the Chair and/or membership in a Board Committee shall not be paid in case there were less than three Board meetings during the corporate year. Overall remunerations and increments shall not exceed Rbase. Remunerations shall not be paid to a Board member, if such member missed more than 50% of Board meetings (conducted during his service).

Additional remunerations, due to each Board member, for the increased market value of the Company shall total 0.0175 per cent of increased market value of the Company (IMC), calculated for a period between his/her election and election of a new Board. IMC remunerations shall be paid only if average monthly traded value of the Company’s common shares during the Board’s tenure totals at least RUR 1.5 mn. Overall remunerations, paid to the Board members, shall not exceed 5% of RAS annual net profit. Remunerations shall be paid within 60 days since the annual general meeting. Remunerations shall not be charged and paid to the Board Chairperson and members, subject to legal restrictions or prohibition of any allowances from businesses.

Meeting-related expenses of a Board member shall be reimbursed in compliance with Company’s trip reimbursement rates existing at the moment when a meeting was conducted. Compensations shall be paid within three business days since the filing of documents certifying incurred costs.
