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

The Board of Directors of YIT Corporation has decided on August 28, 2020 on a directed share issue for Lemminkäinen Performance Share Program reward payment from the 2016 performance period. In connection with the merger of YIT and Lemminkäinen, the companies agreed on payment of unpaid share rewards earned under Lemminkäinen’s long-term incentive plan with shares in YIT. More information is available in offering circular published on August 24, 2017.

In the share issue, a maximum amount of 23,938 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.

Rewards will be paid to the maximum number of 34 people belonging to the 2016 performance period. The terms of the Lemminkäinen Corporation’s Performance Share Program were disclosed in more detail in a stock exchange release published on December 18, 2015.

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 September 10, 2020. After the directed share issue, the company holds 2,015,977 own shares.
