Procedure for Determining Remuneration for Board Members

The remuneration is calculated according to the basic (maximum) amount and depends on the number of meetings attended by the member of the Board of Directors during the reporting period.

The annual remuneration of a Board member is calculated as per the following formula: S year = 4,700,000 × K1, where RUB 4,700,000 – the base for calculating the amount of annual remuneration; K – a coefficient that takes into account the participation of a member of the Board of Directors in Board meetings (regardless of the form of participation). The K coefficient is calculated as per the following formula:

К = The number of Board meetings attended by the member of the Board of Directors (regardless of the form of participation) / Total number of meetings during the reporting period.

Additional annual remuneration is paid for membership in the Board of Directors. The amount of additional remuneration paid to a member of the Board of Directors who is a member of the Board of Directors’ committee is calculated as follows: Dyear = 4,700,000 × K2 × K3, where K – a coefficient that takes into account the participation of a member of the Board of Directors in the Committee meeting (regardless of the form of participation), K3 – an additional coefficient that takes into account the contribution of a member of the Board of Directors to the committee (committee member, Chairman of the committee). K2 coefficient is calculated as per the following formula: К2 = The number of Board of Director’s committee meetings attended by the member of the Board of Directors (regardless of the form of participation) / Total number of meetings during the reporting period. K3 coefficient is equal to: 25% – if the member of the Board of Directors is a member or Deputy Chairman of the committee; 33% – if the member of the Board of Directors is the Chairman of the committee.

If the member of the Board of Directors participates in several committees, the additional annual remuneration is calculated and paid for participation in each committee meeting.

Annual remuneration to members of the Board of Directors is paid pursuant to the final resolution of the general meeting of shareholders.

  • competitiveness in terms of the level and the structure of remuneration;
  • striking a balance between the interests of shareholders and the management of the Company.

Total remuneration of the management consists of a fixed part of the remuneration (basic salary or fixed wages) established by the employment contract and a variable part of the remuneration including bonuses and long-term incentives, as well as other payments stipulated by labour legislation of the Russian Federation, the Collective Bargaining Agreement or local regulations.

The level of remuneration of the management is formed depending on the levels of remuneration observed in the labour market for comparable positions. In the reporting period, there were no loans (credits) extended by the Company to members of the Management Board.

System of Key Performance Indicators

The system of KPI used in the Company best reflects the extent to which the Company’s management is meeting both short- and medium-term objectives (budget parameters) and achieving the long-term strategic objectives established by the Board of Directors. KPIs are used to assess the performance of management, Branch Directors, as well as managers of TransContainer’s Executive Office and branches.

The KPI system comprises three groups of indicators: corporate, process and project KPIs. Corporate KPIs are indicators that characterize the general performance of the Company. Process KPIs are indicators that measure the performance of a functional area or a process of the Company. Project KPIs are fixed-term indicators that measure the degree of achieving the goals of projects (project stages) of the Company / functional area. Each indicator has KPI description, which determines the methodology used to calculate the KPI target value, as well as the method for calculating the value achieved.
