Compensation of the Supervisory Board
The compensation of the members of the Supervisory Board set by the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting is governed by Art. 12 of the Articles of Association of HUGO BOSS AG. Compensation is based on the Company’s size and the scope of work of Supervisory Board members. Compensation of Supervisory Board members is split into fixed and variable components. The variable component is measured based on the amount of earnings per share in the consolidated financial statements. The position of Chairman of the Supervisory Board, that of the Deputy Chairman and membership of the Committees are taken into account when calculating the compensation. The fixed and variable compensation is paid out after the end of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting that decides on the approval of the Supervisory Board for the past fiscal year in question. Members of the Supervisory Board who have only been members of the Supervisory Board or a committee for part of the fiscal year are paid compensation proportionately for each month started of their office. Members of the Supervisory Board are reimbursed expenses incurred in connection with the performance of their duties. Any VAT is reimbursed by the Company if the members of the Supervisory Board are entitled to provide the Company with a separate invoice for VAT and exercise this right. The Supervisory Board received total compensation amounting to EUR 1,417 thousand for its activities in 2017. For 2018, the total compensation is expected to come to EUR 1,464 thousand. This includes a variable portion of EUR 709 thousand (2017: EUR 738 thousand), measured by the amount of the prospective earnings per share in the Consolidated Financial Statements.
