The executive directors earn a fixed salary and suitable incentive based on their performance. Remuneration of non-executive directors is fixed and they are not paid per meeting attended due to the high number of ad-hoc meetings. The remuneration philosophy remains one of simplicity, practicality and sustainability which is aligned to market and industry trends. The policy ensures compensation for proven and sustainable performance both over the short and long term. The policies ensure that there are no incentives for risk taking and/or termination of contracts due to changes in management structure within the Group. The current executive remuneration consists of: • basic salary and suitable incentives for executive directors and executive management, and • non-executive board fees based on prevailing market rates for similar businesses (using the PricewaterhouseCoopers annual publication non-executive directors’ remuneration) as a guide. This comprises a fixed annual fee not related to the number of meetings attended. There are currently no share incentive schemes in place although this matter is still under consideration. 3. Group Executive Committees (“Exco”) Purpose: To actively manage the company and its subsidiaries on a day to day basis and align operations with Board strategies. Composition: Mr. WJ Groenewald, Mr. EA van Heerden, Mr. JK van Zyl and Ms. A Böhmert were appointed to the executive committee.
