The Board of Directors of YIT Corporation has on 28 April 2022 decided on a directed share issue for the reward payment from the 2019 earnings period under YIT Group’s Incentive Scheme 2017–2022.

In the share issue, a maximum of 392,240 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.

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 16 March 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 186 people belonging to the company's management and personnel for the 2019 earnings period.

The decision on the directed share issue is based on the authorization granted to the Board of Directors by the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held on 17 March 2022. The shares will be delivered to the incentive scheme participants on 4 May 2022. After the conveyance of own shares, the company holds 1,588,707 own shares.
