Conveyance of YIT Corporation’s own shares under share-based incentive scheme

The Board of Directors of YIT Corporation has on April 29, 2020 decided on a directed share issue for the reward payment from the 2017 earnings period under YIT Group’s Incentive Scheme 2017–2022. In the share issue, a maximum of 291,575 YIT Corporation shares will be issued and conveyed without consideration to the key persons participating in the incentive scheme according to the terms and conditions of the incentive scheme. As the company will use its treasury shares for the reward payments, the total number of shares of the company will not change.

The share-based incentive scheme for 2017–2022 and its terms decided by YIT’s Board of Directors were disclosed in more detail in a stock exchange release published on March 16, 2017. The purpose of the scheme is to support the company's strategy and to increase the company’s value supplement to existing incentive schemes. Rewards will be paid to maximum 185 people belonging to the company's management and personnel for the 2017 earnings period.

The decision on the directed share issue is based on the authorisation granted to the Board of Directors by the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held on March 12, 2020. The shares will be delivered to the incentive scheme participants on May 7, 2020. After the conveyance of own shares, the company holds 2,039,915 own shares.
