Other variable remuneration may be approved by the Board under extraordinary circumstances, provided that such extraordinary arrangements have the aim of recruiting or retaining personnel. Furthermore, such extraordinary arrangements that have the aim of retaining personnel shall contain performance objectives. Extraordinary arrangments with the aim of recruiting may contain such objectives.
