IDEX shares as board remuneration

The annual general meeting of IDEX on 7 May 2014 resolved that the board members could elect to receive all or part of the board remuneration in the form of shares in IDEX; that the number of shares shall correspond to a value of 133 per cent of the NOK amount granted as board remuneration; that the board member must pay a subscription price per share equal to the par value of the share, being NOK 0.15; and that the shares are locked up for one year from the date of the annual general meeting.

Board member Frode Haugli elected to receive a part of the board remuneration in shares. This means that IDEX will issue 20,116 shares to Mr. Haugli instead of NOK 85,000 in cash board remuneration. Mr. Haugli must pay the par value of the shares.

Board member Hanne Høvding elected to receive the full board remuneration in shares. This means that IDEX will issue 43,781 shares to Ms. Høvding instead of the cash board remuneration amounting to NOK 185,000. Ms. Høvding must pay the par value of the shares.

The share capital of IDEX will increase by a total of NOK 9,584.55. The shares will be issued when the share capital has been paid in.
