3 WELCOME TO THE FINNING INTERNATIONAL INC. ROI EMPLOYEE SHARE PURCHASE PLAN ( THE PLAN ) THE PLAN HAS BEEN SET UP FOR OUR EMPLOYEES IN THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND. IT S FLEXIBLE YOU CAN CHOOSE HOW MUCH YOU WANT TO CONTRIBUTE EACH MONTH (MINIMUM 10, MAXIMUM 70) AND YOU CAN VARY THIS AMOUNT EACH YEAR OR TAKE A BREAK FROM CONTRIBUTIONS. The Plan aims to provide you with an opportunity to buy Finning Shares (referred to as Partnership Shares ) from your after-tax earnings. The Shares are held in trust on your behalf for two years. For every Partnership Share you buy we ll give you one extra free share (referred to as Matching Shares ). These shares must be held in trust for three years for you to get the tax advantages. Some of the key benefits of the Plan are: It s flexible you can choose how much you want to contribute each month (min 10, max 70), and you can vary this amount from year to year or take a break from contributions. It s a long-term investment your contributions are used to buy Partnership Shares. For as long as you remain a Finning employee, you can continue to invest in the Plan. You receive free Matching Shares. You can save on Income Tax on your Matching Shares. Your Partnership Shares and Matching Shares may earn dividends. Investing in shares does have risks the value of shares can, of course, go down as well as up. The Plan is designed to encourage you to build up a holding of Finning shares throughout your career with us. So, the longer you stay with us, the more shares you will be able to build up and the better the tax advantages. 3

4 BUILDING UP YOUR FINNING SHAREHOLDING There are four ways in which the Plan allows the value of your Finning shareholding to grow: 1 YOUR MONTHLY CONTRIBUTIONS The Trustee uses your monthly contributions to acquire Partnership Shares at the end of each calendar quarter. Your contributions must be between 10 and 70 per month (but no more than 7.5% of your monthly basic salary). Even though your monthly contributions will be the same each month during a calendar year, the number of Partnership Shares purchased for you at the end of each calendar quarter will vary, depending on the market value of Finning shares on the day of appropriation and the Euro/Canadian dollar exchange rate. 3 DIVIDENDS ON YOUR SHARES When Finning pays a dividend to its shareholders, you will be entitled to the dividends payable on your shares (both Partnership and Matching) held in the Plan. The dividends will be paid to the Trustee who will then pay them to you (subject to deduction of applicable taxes). 4 THE MARKET VALUE OF YOUR SHARES Over time, the market value of your shares will vary and can go up or down. The Trustee will send you a Plan Statement each year that will give you details of your Finning shareholding. 4

5 PART 1 GENERAL WHO MANAGES THE PLAN? In order to benefit from the favourable tax concessions, the Plan is set up using a trust. Finning has appointed Computershare Trustees (Ireland) Limited (referred to as the Trustee ), to act as trustee of the Plan. It will hold the shares on your behalf. The Trustee acts independently of the Company. Computershare Plan Managers also act as Administrators of the Plan. AM I ELIGIBLE TO JOIN THE PLAN? You can join the Plan at any time if: You are an employee of Finning (Ireland) Limited (referred to as the Company ); You pay tax under the Irish PAYE system; and You have been employed by the Company for three months or more. It s up to you whether or not to join the Plan participation is voluntary. HOW DO I JOIN THE PLAN? You will receive an invitation pack containing the forms required to enrol in the Plan from Computershare. Please complete and return them in accordance with the instructions given. If you have any queries or have not received your invitation pack, please contact the Computershare helpline on: :30am to 5:30pm, Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays. Or 5

6 HOW THE PLAN WORKS HOW MUCH CAN I CONTRIBUTE? When you join the Plan, you need to decide on a specified amount between 10 and 70 that you wish to contribute each month (this can t be more than 7.5% of your monthly basic salary). HOW DO I MAKE MY CONTRIBUTIONS? Your agreed monthly contributions are deducted directly from your after-tax pay. WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF PARTICIPATING? There is no tax savings for your Partnership Shares. They will be bought from your after-tax earnings. However, your purchase of Partnership Shares entitles you to receive free Matching Shares on a 1:1 basis, and that is the most important benefit of participating. Also, Matching Shares will offer you a tax savings; in the normal course you would pay income tax, employee PRSI and the universal social charge ( USC ) on the value of free shares issued in connection with your employment. Because the Plan is approved by the Revenue Commissioners, you will not pay income tax on your Matching Shares, provided you leave them in the Plan for three years after they are allocated or appropriated to you (or two years if you leave in special circumstances i.e. redundancy, death, illness or retirement). You will, however, have to pay employee PRSI and USC each month on the market value of the Matching Shares appropriated to you in that month. The Company will deduct the amount for the PRSI and USC from your monthly salary. WHAT DOES THE TRUSTEE DO WITH MY CONTRIBUTIONS? At the end of each calendar quarter, the Trustee will use your accumulated contributions to acquire your Partnership Shares. These will be Finning shares which are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. They will be bought in Canadian Dollars. This means that the value of any shares you have in the Plan will be affected by the fluctuation in exchange rate between the Canadian Dollar and the Euro. Only whole shares can be purchased, so any contributions left over from a quarterly purchase will be refunded to you through payroll as soon as possible after the purchase date. No interest is payable to you on contributions held by the Trustee for the future purchase of Partnership Shares. 6

7 HOW DO I RECEIVE MY MATCHING SHARES? You will automatically receive one free Matching Share for each Partnership Share you buy. Matching Shares will be appropriated to you at the end of each calendar quarter on the same date as your Partnership Shares. Example: You contribute 50 per month to the Plan. That amount is deducted monthly from your after-tax earnings as follows. Calendar Quarter Monthly contribution to plan Total Monthly Contributions for quarter Canadian Dollar equivalent* Finning Share Price** Partnership Shares Purchased Free Matching Shares Total Finning Shareholding January 2015 March 2015 April 2015 June 2015 July 2015 September $210 $ $231 $ $195 $ * Assumes different Canadian Dollar/Euro exchange rates. ** Assumed Finning share prices are for illustrative purposes only. As soon as possible after the Appropriation Date for each calendar quarter, the Plan Administrator will send you a notice showing: (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (vi) the total amount of your after-tax salary deductions for that calendar quarter; the number of Partnership Shares bought using your after-tax salary deductions; the number of free Matching Shares awarded to you in respect of your Partnership Shares; the initial market value or Locked-In Value of each Partnership Share and Matching Share; the Retention Period for your Partnership Shares and Matching Shares (two years after their Appropriation Date); the Appropriation Date for your Partnership Shares and Matching Shares; and 7

8 (vii) the Release Date for your Matching Shares (the three-year anniversary of the Appropriation Date). This information is important for tax purposes and should be kept with your tax records. MAY I CHANGE MY CONTRIBUTIONS? You may change your monthly contribution amount but only at the beginning of a new calendar year; the rate that you decide will then be fixed for the remainder of that year. Please contact Computershare at to obtain the necessary forms. Please note your contributions cannot be backdated. MAY I TAKE A BREAK FROM CONTRIBUTIONS? You may stop your contributions at any time. Please contact Computershare at to obtain the necessary forms. Payroll will then be notified of your change and deductions will cease with effect from the next practicable payroll run. You may not restart your contributions in the same calendar year. You may do so in a subsequent calendar year by completing new forms which you can obtain from contacting Computershare at You cannot make up for missed contributions. WHAT HAPPENS TO MY CONTRIBUTIONS IF I GO ON MATERNITY OR SICK LEAVE? If you are temporarily absent from work and still receiving pay e.g. maternity or sick pay you can continue to contribute to the Plan. Payroll will ensure your monthly contributions are not above 7.5% of your monthly basic salary. If you cease to be legally entitled to return to work, you will be treated as having left employment and your contributions must stop. See page 13 for more on leaving the Company. 8

9 FOR HOW LONG MUST MY SHARES REMAIN IN THE PLAN BEFORE I CAN SELL OR TRANSFER THEM? The rules are different for Partnership Shares and Matching Shares: Partnership Shares As a condition of your participation in the Plan, you must agree that your Partnership Shares will be held by the Trustee in the Plan for two years beginning with the Appropriation Date (the "Retention Period"). During this period you may not deal with your Partnership Shares in any way i.e. you may not sell them, give them away or pledge them as security for a loan. However, the Retention Period will end earlier if: you cease to be employed because of death, injury, disability or redundancy; or you reach the State pension age (at present, 66 years). At any time after the Retention Period has expired, you can direct the Trustee to sell your Partnership Shares for you or to transfer them into your name. Because Partnership Shares are purchased with after-tax earnings, you will not be liable to income tax/usc/prsi in respect of those shares when they are sold for you or transferred to you. However: (a) in the first three years beginning with the Appropriation Date (but after the end of the two-year Retention Period), Partnership Shares can only be withdrawn from the Plan if the related Matching Shares are withdrawn at the same time - put another way, if you withdraw a number of shares from the Plan during that period that were appropriated on an Appropriation Date, half of them will be deemed to be Partnership Shares, with no income tax liability, and half of them will be deemed to be the corresponding Matching Shares (normally with an income tax liability for the Matching Shares); and (b) there may be capital gains tax implications. More information on tax is provided in Part 2. 9

10 Matching Shares You must normally leave your Matching Shares in the Plan for the two-year Retention Period. During the Retention Period you may not deal with your Matching Shares in any way i.e. you may not sell them, give them away or pledge them as security for a loan. However, the Retention Period will end earlier if: you cease to be employed because of death, injury, disability or redundancy; or you reach the State pension age (at present, 66 years). After the Retention Period, you may direct the Trustee to sell your Matching Shares for you or to transfer them into your name. However: (a) (b) if you direct the Trustee to do any of these things within three years beginning with the Appropriation Date you will normally incur an income tax liability (although, as explained above, Matching Shares can only be withdrawn at the same time as the corresponding Partnership Shares): and there may also be capital gains tax implications. More information on tax is provided in Part 2. 10

11 ACCESSING YOUR SHARES WHEN CAN I GET HOLD OF MY SHARES? You will generally not be permitted to take your Partnership or Matching Shares out of the Plan until two years after the date they were appropriated to you. If you want to get the full tax benefits for your Matching Shares, you generally must leave both your Partnership Shares and Matching Shares in the Plan until three years after they were appropriated to you. The Trustee will hold the shares on your behalf. HOW DO I SELL MY SHARES? You can sell your shares, once they are free of the relevant Retention Period, by completing the necessary sales form, which can be obtained from Computershare at The provision of the share sale service is not a recommendation by Finning or Computershare to buy or sell Finning shares. Any other method of sale will need to be arranged separately with your own financial institution. Alternatively, you may continue to hold your shares through the Trustee until such time as you wish to sell or transfer your shares. To transfer your shares, please complete a Form of Direction which can be obtained from Computershare at and return it to the Trustee. 11

12 WILL IT COST ME ANYTHING TO SELL MY SHARES? There are usually dealing charges associated with selling shares. Please refer to Computershare Plan Managers for further details. Other brokers fees may vary. DO I HAVE TO SELL MY PARTNERSHIP SHARES AS SOON AS THE TWO-YEAR RETENTION PERIOD HAS PASSED? No. It s up to you whether to sell/transfer your Partnership Share after the two-year Retention Period has ended but note that selling your Partnership Shares earlier than three years after the Appropriation Date will generally result in the full loss of tax benefits on the Matching Shares that were appropriated to you at the same time as those Partnership Shares. DO I HAVE TO SELL MY MATCHING SHARES AS SOON THEY BECOME FREE OF INCOME TAX? No. It s up to you whether to sell/transfer your shares immediately after they have satisfied the three-year period required to obtain the maximum tax benefits. 12

13 LEAVING FINNING HOW WOULD MY LEAVING FINNING OR MY DEATH AFFECT SHARES ALREADY APPROPRIATED TO ME UNDER THE PLAN? This depends on why you leave. If you leave because of injury, disability, redundancy or reaching the State pension age (at present 66 years), you may at any time thereafter direct the Trustee to sell your Partnership and/or Matching Shares for you or transfer them into your name, even if the normal two-year period Retention Period has not expired, but you will have an income tax liability, albeit reduced, in respect of your Matching Shares (see Part 2 for the tax implications). In the event of your death, your personal representatives or executors may direct the Trustee to sell your Partnership Shares and Matching Shares or transfer them into their names. No income tax/usc/prsi is payable. If you leave Finning for any other reason (i.e. other than those outlined above), any shares held by the Trustee on your behalf continue to be held by the Trustee as though you were still an employee. Consequently, you cannot sell your Partnership Shares or Matching Shares or have them transferred into your name until after the expiry of the normal two-year Retention Period and, to receive your Matching Shares free of income tax, you must leave them in the Plan for the full three-year period in practice, the related Partnership Shares would also have to be left in the Plan for that period because, as explained earlier, Partnership Shares and Matching Shares appropriated at the same time can only be withdrawn at the same time within the first three years after the Appropriation Date. Once you leave Finning s employment, for whatever reason, you will not be eligible to participate in any further appropriations of shares under the Plan. 13

14 SHAREHOLDER RIGHTS WILL I ENJOY THE RIGHTS OF A SHAREHOLDER WHILE MY SHARES ARE HELD BY THE TRUSTEE? Yes, but only through the Trustee who holds the shares on your behalf and who will carry out your instructions in accordance with the Trust Deed and the Rules of the Plan. Copies of all notices, circulars and other documents sent to shareholders will be made available to you on request to the HR Department. Many of these documents are also made available on Finning's website ( While your shares are held by the Trustee, you will not be able to attend shareholders meetings. The Trustee may, however, seek instructions from you as to how it should vote your Finning shares on your behalf. WILL I RECEIVE DIVIDENDS ON MY SHARES? You will receive any dividend paid to the Trustee in respect of your Partnership and Matching Shares and the Trustee will in turn pay it to you (see Part 2 for information on the taxation of dividends). WHERE CAN I FIND THE VALUE OF FINNING SHARES? You can find the value of Finning Shares by logging on to the website 14

15 Part 2 TAX AND YOUR SHARES HOW DOES THE PLAN LIMIT THE TAX I PAY? As this is a Revenue Commissioner-approved plan, it is designed to be as tax-efficient as possible. The Income Tax on withdrawing your shares depends on the type of shares (i.e. Partnership or Matching) and the length of time they have been held in the Plan. Share type Partnership Shares On Acquisition Partnership Shares are acquired using posttax earnings and so provide no tax savings of themselves. Shares held 0-2 years ( Retention Period ) Partnership Shares may not be sold during the Retention Period except if you leave Finning in special circumstances.* Shares held 2-3 years Shares may be sold, Capital Gains Tax payable. (But note that Matching Shares for any Partnership Shares must be sold at the same time, generally resulting in loss of tax benefits for the Matching Shares). Shares held 3+years Capital Gains Tax Matching Shares No Income Tax, but you must pay employee PRSI and the Universal Social Charge (USC) on the value of your Matching Shares when they are appropriated to you each calendar quarter. The PRSI and USC will be deducted from your pre-tax salary. Shares cannot be withdrawn or sold except where you leave Finning in special circumstances.* In that case Income Tax is charged on 50% of the lower of: a) Market value when acquired b) Sale proceeds or market value when withdrawn No income tax is charged in the case of death. Income Tax is charged on the lower of 100%: a) Market value when acquired b) Sale proceeds or market value when withdrawn If you leave Finning in special circumstances* the income tax is charged on 50% of (a) or (b) above. No income tax is charged in the case of death. No Income Tax. Capital Gains Tax. * Special circumstances: death, injury, disability, retirement at State pension age (at present, 66 years)

16 HOW DO I PAY THE INCOME TAX ON AN EARLY DISPOSAL OF MY MATCHING SHARES? If you direct the Trustee to sell or transfer your Matching Shares to you or some other person within three years after the Appropriation Date, the Trustee must collect from you, before the transfer takes place, tax at the standard rate (currently 20%) on the relevant value of the Matching Shares involved, being their initial market value (or Locked-In Value ) or, if less, the sale proceeds or market value at the time you direct the Trustee to sell or otherwise deal with them. The Trustee will then pay this tax over to the Revenue Commissioners. You will be liable to income tax at the marginal rate (20% or 41% depending on your income), but will receive a credit for the amount of tax paid over to the Trustee. Where the shares are transferred or disposed of within three years after the Appropriation Date, you should notify your Inspector of Taxes of the chargeable transaction when filing your income tax return at the end of the year. The Tax Inspector may then decide to raise an income tax assessment to collect the tax due from you or, more likely, he will reduce your tax-free allowance so that, effectively, income tax payable on the realisation of the shares will be dealt with under the PAYE system. The income tax must be discharged by 31 October in the year following the year of the benefit (subject to preliminary tax obligations on 31 October the year of the benefit). HOW ARE DIVIDENDS TAXED? Any dividend payment you receive with respect to shares held by the Trustee on your behalf will be subject to deduction of Canadian Withholding Tax of 30% if you do not complete a NR301 form. That form will be sent to you by Computershare. The Trustee will withhold encashment tax at the rate of 20%. The gross dividend will be taxed under the self-assessment system at your marginal rate of tax with applicable credit for the tax withheld. You will also be liable to pay PRSI on dividend payments. This is paid by you under the selfassessment system. 16

17 DO I HAVE TO PAY ANY OTHER TAX WHEN I SELL MY SHARES? If you leave your shares in the Plan until the three-year Release Date, you will have to pay capital gains tax ( CGT ) on the excess of the sale proceeds over their initial market value when they were appropriated to you. Furthermore, you will only have to pay CGT if your total taxable gains for that tax year from all sources exceed the annual exemption level (currently 1,270). If you dispose of shares in the period from 1 January to 30 November in any year, CGT is due by 15 December of that year. If you dispose of shares between 1 and 31 December, CGT is due by 31 January of the following year. These notes are provided for guidance only and are not intended to be exhaustive. Tax planning is a specialised area and if you are in any doubt about your own tax position, you should seek independent financial advice before taking any actions that would give rise to liability for income tax or CGT. You should also remember that tax legislation could change from year to year. DO I HAVE TO INFORM THE REVENUE COMMISSIONERS ABOUT THE PLAN? You must include in your tax returns details of any taxable sales or transfers of shares under the Plan, as well as dividends you receive. The Trustee will also be required to make an annual report to the Revenue Commissioners which will contain information about the number of shares appropriated to each employee or disposed of for him/her in the previous tax year. 17

18 FURTHER I N F O R M A T I O N HOW WILL CHANGES IN FINNING AFFECT THE PLAN? In respect of the shares held on your behalf in the Plan, you will have broadly similar rights to other shareholders if Finning: Offers its shareholders the right to buy additional Finning shares; Changes its share capital (e.g. splits its shares); or Is subject to a take-over bid. In these situations, the Trustee will explain the choices you have at that time and carry out any instruction you give it. 18

19 CHANGING OR TERMINATING THE PLAN The Company reserves the right to change or end the Plan at any time. If any material changes are made, you will be notified. YOUR EMPLOYMENT The Plan does not form any part of your contract of employment and any benefit you may receive under the Plan does not form any part of your contractual remuneration. Benefits paid under the Plan are not part of pensionable pay. RESTRICTIONS You cannot assign or secure a loan against your shares, or use them in any way to guarantee payment, until after the end of any relevant Retention Period. If you have any further questions about the Plan, please contact Computershare at 19
