The Board of Directors of Evli Bank Plc has resolved to establish a new share-
based incentive plan directed to selected key employees of the company. Rewards
paid based on the plan will be paid in Evli Bank Plc's shares. The maximum
number of shares to be paid corresponds to 350,000 Evli's Series B shares (gross
number of shares before reduction of applicable tax deductions).

The aim with the share-based incentive plan is to support Evli's strategy and
align the objectives of the shareholders and the selected key employees to
increase the value of Evli in the long-term. In addition, the aim is to retain
the selected key employees at the company and to offer them a competitive reward

The reward from the incentive plan is awarded to the participants in one
installment in June 2019. The prerequisite for reward award and reward payment
is that a participant's employment or service is in force. In addition, the
Board of Directors may consider the participant's work contribution and the
company's financial performance.

The installment has a four-year deferral period. Ownership rights to the shares
subject to the reward are transferred to the beneficiary only after the end of
the deferral period. Therefore, the ownership is transferred to the participants
after the relevant deferral period in June 2023. The shares will be subject to a
one-year transfer restriction.
