Remuneration of the Board consists of a fixed part and a bonus contingent upon achieving goals set by the Supervisory Board of PGE S.A.

Management Services Contracts contain non-competition clauses which are binding during the term of the contract and following expiration thereof. Management Board members purchased, at their own expense, liability insurance with regard to their managing duties for the Company.

The Act of June 9, 2016 on the principles of determining the amount of remuneration for persons managing certain companies (Dziennik Ustaw of 2016, item 1202 as amended) - so called new Public Sector Salary Cap Act – came into force on September 9, 2016. The new Public Sector Salary Cap Act determines, inter alia, principles for determining remuneration in companies with a stake of the State Treasury (for example PGE), in particular determines the way in which the remuneration of the members of the Management Board and Supervisory Board is set (rules for determining remuneration of the Management Board and Supervisory Board are adopted by the General Meeting and the Supervisory Board adopts resolutions on specific conditions of the management board remuneration), determines obligatory elements of the management services contract signed with the Management Board member as well as rules and conditions for severance pay or the conclusion of a non-competition clause. On December 14, 2016, the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company, convened on request of the Minister of Energy representing the State Treasury, adopted resolution concerning the principles of determining the amount of remuneration for members of the Management Board of PGE S.A.
