The CEO’s fixed base salary for the period under review is comparable to the level from the previous fiscal year. The total amount of fixed base salary for the other members of the Executive Board is CHF 51’000 more than in the prior-year period. The Annual General Meeting of July 1, 2017 approved a total sum of CHF 2’120’000 (gross, including social insurance contributions) for the fixed compensation of the entire Executive Board for the fiscal year 2018. The amount of fixed compensation actually paid (gross, including social insurance contributions) was CHF 194’000 less than the approved amount.

The annual bonus for the Executive Board in fiscal year 2018 was CHF 63’000 more than in the previous year. This is because of the increase in reported net profit, which serves as the basis for the annual bonus, and because the targets set in conjunction with the Group and Divisional factors described above were exceeded. Personnel expenses for the Executive Board’s long-term bonus were CHF 35’000 more than in the previous year. The provision made for the long-term bonus has been adjusted for two reasons: firstly, on the basis of an assessment of business performance over a multi-year period; secondly, in accordance with Swiss GAAP FER, the related expenses must be allocated over the program’s vesting period, which can lead to adjustments within individual fiscal years.
