ADOPTION OF REMUNERATION REPORT
The Board recommends that shareholders vote in favour of this resolution.
Section 250R(2) of the Corporations Act requires the Company to put a resolution to the AGM for adoption of the Remuneration Report. The vote on the resolution will be advisory only and will not bind the Directors or the Company. However, the Board values shareholder feedback and will take into consideration the outcome of voting on this resolution when assessing remuneration policy for executives and Non-Executive Directors in the future.
The Company is committed to creating a high-performance culture. Remuneration and benefits are set in the context of an overall policy to provide market-competitive remuneration and arrangements that support the attraction, development, engagement and retention of team members. These aims are aligned with the interests of shareholders.
Similarly, the Company's remuneration strategy is designed to attract and retain experienced, qualified Non- Executive Directors and to remunerate appropriately to reflect the responsibilities of the position. Non- Executive Directors receive fees to recognise their contribution to the work of the Board and the Committees on which they serve.
The Remuneration Report is set out in pages 43 to 67 of the Company's 2021 Annual Report. It is also available on the Company's website at: https://www.superretailgroup.com.au/investors-and- media/corporate-governance/.
