Termination of Service – details of the payment arrangements and illustrative examples B 013 Examples in € thou Transition payment (Appointment before 1 January 2010) Board members receiving a transition payment are subject to a six months non-compete clause. A regular Board member with last Base salary of 700 and target variable remuneration of 2,100 The payment is calculated based on the last Base salary and 25 % of the target variable remuneration at the date when notice is given. Base Salary for 6 months (350) + 25 % of the total variable remuneration at target (525) = 875 An ­Allianz pension, where immediately payable, is taken into account in adjusting transition payment amounts. Severance payment cap Payments to Board members for early termination with a remaining term of contract of more than two years are capped at two year’s compensation: A regular Board member with last year Base salary of 700 and target variable remuneration of 2,100 Whereby the annual compensation Two years compensation: a. is calculated on the basis of the previous year’s annual Base salary plus 50 % of the target variable remuneration (Annual bonus + annualized Three-year bonus + Equity-related remuneration); and Base Salary (1,400) + 50 % of the total variable remuneration at target (2,100) = 3,500 Severance payment cap: the lower of 3,500 or 5,600b. shall not exceed the latest year’s actual total compensation. Assumption: Last year’s actual total compensation at 2,800 = 5,600 In case the remaining term of contract is less than two years the payment is prorated according to the remaining term of the contract. Based on the example from above (severance payment cap at 3,500) and assuming a remaining term of contract of only half a year: Severance payment cap (3,500) prorated to half a year = 875 Change of Control In case of an early termination as a result of a change of control, severance payments made to Board members generally amount to a three years' compensation (yearly compensation as defined above) and shall not exceed Based on the example from above: 150 % of the severance payment cap. 150 % of the severance payment cap (3,500) = 5,250 Consequently, the payout is less than two years total remune­ration at target. 84
