THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS RENOUNCE THE SECOND TRANCHE OF THE
STOCK OPTION PLAN
Travagliato (Brescia), 19 July 2021 - Antares Vision Group (the Company), the international leader in the pharmaceutical sector for track & trace hardware and software solutions (anti-counterfeiting and supply chain transparency), with an established presence in inspection systems (quality control), and active in smart data management (production efficiency and end-to-end supply chain digitalization, from raw materials to the final consumer), informs that the Company's Board of Directors, held today, took note of the waiver made by the executive directors (Emidio Zorzella, Massimo Bonardi, Alioscia Berto and Fabio Forestelli) of the options assigned to them when allocating the second tranche of options relating to the stock option plan, approved by the Company's Shareholders' Meeting on 20 May 2020, for a total of 108,000 options (of which 33,000 each regarding Emidio Zorzella and Massimo Bonardi and 21,000 Alioscia Berto and Fabio Forestelli), so that they can be assigned to Group employees.
This decision was made by the directors involved having regard not only to the functions of the stock option plan and the structure of their respective remuneration, but also to their capacity as shareholders of the Company (albeit indirectly, as they personally hold certain shares representing the share capital of Regolo SpA, Antares Vision's parent company), which is such as to ensure and incentivize in any case an adequate alignment with the interests of the Company and the generality of the shareholders.
The decision taken by the executive directors will make it possible to expand the retention plan in favour of a greater number of top management figures in the group and to further consolidate the structure.
