The Remuneration Committee and the Board have reviewed the remuneration terms of Mr Elimelech and Mr Even-Chen and believe that these terms reflect the directors’ substantial contribution to the Company’s significant growth in their executive roles. In making its recommendation, the Remuneration Committee considered several factors, including comparable industry data, remuneration data of executive directors of other FTSE 250 companies, data of peer companies in the industry, the responsibilities and duties performed by each of Mr Elimelech and Mr Even-Chen and their substantial contribution to the company’s growth in their executive roles.

The Remuneration Committee and the Board have approved, and recommended that Plus500’s shareholders approve the remuneration terms for Mr Elimelech and Mr Even-Chen.
