The Compensation Committee’s scope of work and responsibilities are:

  • Fix appropriate remuneration both monetary and non-monetary in order to be an incentive for members of the Board of Directors, the Committee and high level executives to remain with the Company

Additionally, a member of the management team or a Company employee should be awarded more than 5% of the total number of shares or warrants to be made available, the Compensation Committee must judge as to whether such an award is justified and must agree with the decision.
