Long-term share-based incentive programme
As from 2004, Novo Nordisk's Executive Management and Senior Management Board (27 in total) participate in a performance-based incentive programme where Novo Nordisk B shares are allocated annually to a bonus pool when certain predefined business-related targets have been achieved. The annual maximum allocation of shares to the bonus pool is capped at the equivalent of eight months of salary on average per participant. The shares in the bonus pool are locked up for a three-year period before they are transferred to the executives at the expiry of the three-year lock-up period.

Based on an assessment of the economic value generated in 2006 as well as the performance of the R&D portfolio and key sustainability projects, the Board of Directors on 30 January 2007 approved the establishment of a bonus pool for 2006 by allocating a total of 130,750 Novo Nordisk B shares, corresponding to a cash value of DKK 45.8 million. This allocation amounts to eight months of salary on average per participant.
