For the measurement, the market condition that stipulates that the share price must be at least €60 on one of the last five weekdays prior to exercise was taken into account. Valuation was based on the following parameters: Software AG share price on May 4, 2012 €25.44 Strike price of rights €41.34 Assumed average volatility 43.0% Expected dividend yield 2.0% Risk-free interest rate 1.1% Expected average term until exercise of the rights (in years) 7.0 The expected volatility was derived by applying the implied volatility of stock options with comparable terms of maturity to Software AG shares. This results in a fair value of €5.84 for all rights awarded prior to May 4, 2012 (6,515,500 rights) under the program. The fair values on the respective award dates for rights awarded after May 4, 2012 (387,500 rights) were between €5.00 and €7.50. Expenses of €4,389 thousand (2011: €3,020 thousand) were incurred under this plan during fiscal year 2012. Management Incentive Plan 2007 (MIP III) (2007–2011) In 2007, a share-based incentive plan for members of the Management Board and upper management was launched. A total of 7,342,500 (before stock split: 2,447,500) participation rights have been issued to Management Board members and managers under the plan. As part of the plan, the defined performance target involves reaching €1,000,000 thousand for Group revenues by no later than fiscal year 2011, while at the same time doubling after-tax earnings compared to fiscal year 2006. These performance targets were achieved at the end of fiscal year 2010. Accordingly, since May 19, 2011, participants are entitled to payment of the difference between the price of Software AG shares and the base price of €24.12. However, the Company is entitled to elect to issue shares in lieu of a cash payment at its discretion.
