Share-based payments

Members of the Board of Management of E.ON SE and certain executives of the E.ON Group receive share-based payment as part of their voluntary long-term variable compensation. The purpose is to reward their contribution to E.ON’s growth and to further the long-term success of the company. This variable compensation component, comprising a long-term incentive along with a certain element of risk, links the interests of shareholders and management.
