The aforementioned annual fees will be paid in Kesko Corporation's B series shares and in cash, with approximately 30% of the fees paid in shares. After the transfer of shares, the remaining fee amount is paid in cash. The Company will acquire the shares or transfer shares held by the Company as treasury shares in the name and on behalf of the Board members. The Company is responsible for the costs arising from the acquisition of the shares. The shares will be acquired or transferred to the Board members on the first working day to follow the publication of the interim report for the first quarter of 2021. A Board member cannot transfer shares obtained in this manner until either three years have passed from the day the member has received the shares or their membership on the Board has ended, whichever comes first.

Board members do not have share compensation or share-based compensation schemes, nor do they participate in the other remuneration schemes or pension plans of the Company.
