Remuneration of Key Executives


To incentivize the executives to deliver on objectives and targets with high-quality performance and to ensure the Company’s financial stability and sustainable growth.

Governing regulations

Policy on Remuneration of Key Executives of PAO TMK.

Forms of incentives

Short-term and long-term programs.

Short-term incentive programme

Basic remuneration and a set of KPIs are individually determined for each manager included in a short-term incentive programme (their list is updated on an annual basis). Each KPI has a certain weight assigned to it. Based on the full-year results, the weights of KPIs are adjusted subject to the actual performance against such KPIs, measured on the approved scale.

Remuneration mix for key executives

Remuneration is accrued upon review by the Board of Directors of the Company’s performance in the past year, i.e. the achievement of targets for metrics such as EBITDA, operating cash flow, product shipments, product sales revenue, etc. Managers’ performance can also be evaluated on the achievement of individual targets, including project implementation (taking into account the manager’s role in the project), subordinate units’ delivery on their targets, performance against internal customer focus and gross profit KPIs, progress on programs to introduce new product types, etc. All this data may be sub-divided by top managers’ responsibility areas into divisions, sections, individual assets or business lines.

PAO TMK’s Board of Directors meetings and resolutions on remuneration of key executives:

  • February 21, 2019 — remuneration of the Company’s managers for 2018, key performance indicators and remuneration arrangements for 2019;

Since 2018, TMK has in place a long-term incentive programme aimed at increasing the managers’ interest in the Company’s capitalization growth through granting a right to receive additional remuneration for the achievement of TMK’s strategic goals, based on the changes in its share price against the reference group comprising major international and Russian companies.

The information on the remuneration of managers covered by the Policy is disclosed in accordance with the corporate practices, applicable laws, regulators’ requirements, the listing rules of stock exchanges and the recommendations of the Corporate Governance Code.
