The company faced an uproar at its 2017 AGM, on which we followed up with further engagement. In early 2018, company has started to fundamentally revise its compensation policy to increase transparency and improve readability. In addition, the company made amendments to the executive compensation. In particular, from the year 2018 the short-term variable remuneration no longer includes a discretionary component, and the maximum target threshold was lowered. Furthermore, claw back provisions and severance caps were introduced in compliance with the German Corporate Governance Code.
