EXPLANATORY NOTES TO THE AGENDA
The Company's annual report over the financial year 2017 has been made available on the Company's website (http://www.trivago.com) and at the Company's office address.
The Company's compensation policy is intended to attract, retain and motivate managing directors with the leadership qualities, skills and experience needed to support and promote the growth and sustainable success of the Company and its business. The compensation structure for managing directors should drive strong business performance, promote accountability, incentivize managing directors to achieve short and long-term performance targets with the objective of increasing the Company's equity value, assure that the interests of the managing directors are closely aligned to those of the Company, its business and its stakeholders and ensure the overall market competitiveness of compensation packages for managing directors.
The implementation of the Company's compensation policy has been outlined in the Company's annual report over the financial year 2017.
The Company's annual accounts over the financial year 2017 have been made available on the Company's website (http://www.trivago.com) and at the Company's office address. It is proposed that these annual accounts be adopted.
The Company has formulated a dividend and reservation policy consistent with its current strategy. The Company's policy in this respect is not to distribute any profits in the near future and to add any such profits to the Company's reserves for purposes such as funding the development and expansion of the Company's business, making future investments, financing capital expenditures and enhancing the Company's liquidity position. If and when the Company does intend to distribute a dividend, such dividend may be distributed in the form of cash only or shares only, through a combination of the foregoing (cash and shares) or through a choice dividend (cash or shares), in each case subject to applicable law.
It is proposed that Ernst & Young Accountants LLP ("EY") be appointed and instructed to audit the Company's annual report and annual accounts for the financial year 2018. This proposal is
