The share subscription price for all stock options 2013 is EUR 0.33 per share (the share subscription price in the Company’s share issue announced on 8 October 2013).

For vesting of each stock option class, the Board of Directors will establish financial targets related to the Company’s performance improvement program separately for each stock option class. The share subscription period for stock options 2013A will begin only if the targets established for the 2014 financial year’s Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) adjusted by non-recurring items are fulfilled.
The number of stock options 2013A is 580,000. The theoretical market value of one stock option 2013A is EUR 0.10 per stock option. The theoretical market value of the stock options 2013A is EUR 58,000 in total.

The theoretical market value of the stock options has not been adjusted downward for the probability of not fulfilling the targets established for the vesting criterion.
