Long term incentive plan (LTIP)
HEINEKEN has a performance-based Long-term incentive plan (LTIP) for the Executive Board and senior
management. Under this LTIP, share rights are conditionally awarded to participants on an annual basis.
The vesting of these rights is subject to the performance of Heineken N.V. on specific internal performance
conditions and continued service over a three calendar year period by the employee.
The performance conditions for LTIP are Organic Net Revenue growth, Organic EBIT beia growth, Earnings
Per Share beia growth and Free Operating Cash Flow for LTIP 2016-2018. As per LTIP 2017-2019 Organic
EBIT beia growth changed into Organic Operating Profit beia growth.
At target performance, 100% of the awarded share rights vest. At threshold performance, 50% of the
awarded share rights vest and at maximum performance, 200% of the awarded share rights vest for the
Executive Board as well as senior managers contracted by the US, Mexico, Brazil and Singapore, and 175%
vest for all other senior managers. As from LTIP 2017-2019 the maximum performance is set at 200% for
all senior managers.

aforementioned plans are visualised below:
