Notice periods of up to 12 months apply. For one member of the Executive Committee, severance payments of approximately CHF 0.9 million would be due in case of termination of the employment contract by the employer. For certain members of the Executive Committee, based on mandatory local law, severance payments may become due in case of termination.

[3]Including employee’s social contributions.

[4]Car allowance for private use, car lease financed by the Company, membership fees, housing allowance, relocation, education, health insurance, representation allowance. Includes tax equalisation payments to a member of the Executive Committee, partly refundable to the Company in the future.

[5]Employer‘s social contributions.

[6]Value in CHF of Adecco S.A. shares awarded in 2011 under the LTIP 2011 (grant date: March 16, 2011).
Valuation of the share awards granted:

  • The grant date fair value of the restricted share unit awards (“RSU awards”) is equal to the closing price of the Adecco S.A. share on the day of grant less 3% discount related to non-entitlement of RSU awards to dividend until vesting. An additional discount of 11% is applied to the value of RSU awards granted to the French participants, related to additional 2-year post-vesting restrictions on sale of shares.
  • The grant date values of the total shareholder return awards (“TSR awards”) are calculated based on the closing price of the Adecco S.A. share on the day of grant multiplied by the respective probability factors. These factors reflect the likelihood that the respective TSR targets will be met at the end of the performance period. The probability factors of 0.40, 0.27, and 0.18 for relative, absolute, and additional TSR awards, respectively, have been determined using a binomial model. A discount of 3% is applied in relation to non-entitlement of TSR awards to dividend until vesting. An additional discount of 11% is applied to the value of TSR awards granted to the French participants, related to additional 2-year post-vesting restrictions on sale of shares by the participants.
  • The per-share value of awards granted in 2011 amounts to CHF 49.12 and CHF 55.19 for RSU awards, CHF 19.70 and CHF 22.13 for relative TSR awards, CHF 13.12 and CHF 14.74 for absolute TSR awards, and CHF 8.84 and CHF 9.93 for additional TSR awards (lower values: French participants).
  • Included are the awards granted to François Davy in 2011. Not included are the awards granted to Martín Alonso in 2011 in his function before he became a member of the Executive Committee.
