In 2011, the board and management of ContextVision decided to introduce an incentive program through the creation of a profit-sharing foundation for its employees.
The program is intended to streamline the focus and efforts of all employees by allocating a part of the company’s net profits to a foundation that, in turn, will use the allocated funds to purchase ContextVision’s common stock on the Oslo Stock Exchange.
Senior management and the board of directors will each year formulate a number of operational and strategic targets to be achieved during the coming fiscal year.
According to the rules of the foundation, the shares bought each year will be kept for a period of 4 years. After that period the shares will be sold, and funds (less tax) will be paid to the employees.
