Petroleum Geo-Services ASA :Mandatory notification of trade
June 7, 2013: Oslo, Norway.
The 2013 Performance Based Restricted Stock Unit Plan, as approved by the Annual General Meeting on May 14th 2013, has now been implemented by allocating 757,975 restricted stock units (RSUs). The complete terms and conditions of the Performance Based Restricted Stock Unit Plan are described in the calling notice for the 2013 Annual General Meeting. The Board of Directors has now decided on the individual allocation which includes 221 employees.
The awards are based on amongst other considerations the position in the Company and a review on the individual participant's performance prior to award. Any RSU awarded will, subject to the participant's continued employment with the Company (or a subsidiary), be settled three years after grant. Upon settlement, the participant will receive a number of shares in the Company which equals the number of RSUs awarded.
Delivery of shares will take place from the Company's pool of treasury shares or, if an insufficient number of treasury shares exists, be settled by cash payment of an equivalent value.
The purpose of the Restricted Stock Unit Plan is to further the interests of PGS, its subsidiaries and its shareholders by providing incentives in the form of awards to employees who can contribute materially to the success and profitability of PGS. Such awards will recognize and reward performance and individual contributions and give participants in the plan an interest in the Company parallel to that of the shareholders, thus enhancing the proprietary and personal interest in PGS' continued success and progress.
