The Board of Directors of Harvia Plc has on 3 May 2023 decided on a directed share issue without consideration for the payment of rewards earned under the company’s share-based incentive program. The share payments concern the performance period 2020–2022 of the company’s share-based incentive program launched in 2020.
In the share issue, 9,109 own shares held by the company have today been transferred without consideration to the key employees participating in the share-based incentive program in accordance with the program-specific terms and conditions.
After the transfer of shares under the incentive program and the shares transferred at the same time as part of the board remuneration, the company holds a total of 9,637 own shares.
The decision on the transfer of shares is based on the authorization granted to the Board of Directors by the Annual General Meeting on 20 April 2023. No new shares shall be issued in connection with the program, and the program therefore has no diluting effect on shareholdings.
