Directors’ remuneration policy
Dialight’s current remuneration policy was first published in the Dialight Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 31 December 2016 and approved by shareholders at the AGM held on 20 April 2017. The committee continues to have a clear policy on remuneration; namely that base salary and benefits for Executive Directors should represent a fair return for employment but that the majority of remuneration should be variable, dependent on the continued success of the Company, and aligned with the creation of shareholder value and delivery of Dialight’s strategic plan.
During 2016 and 2017, the committee undertook a comprehensive review of our remuneration policy and carried out a consultation process with major shareholders; the resultant minor changes ensure that the remuneration policy remains aligned with these principles and that it reflects changes in best practice over the last three years.
The principal change was the introduction of a mandatory two-year holding period on vested PSP shares. There are also amendments to wording in places to provide the committee with sufficient flexibility to make minor changes over the life of the remuneration policy.
