Kerry Group - AGM 02 May 2019

Item 6: Approve the Remuneration Report

The structure is generally acceptable, though accelerated vesting is possible.  There are concerns over whether the bonus targets are sufficiently challenging.  Potential incentive pay does not exceed ECGS guidelines and the quantum for the year is not excessive.  However, given the recruitment award paid to the CFO, we recommend shareholders oppose.
