English translation:power of attorney
Explanation:
Verhandlungspouvoir is an Austrian term (actually, pouvoir is French...) for Handlungsvollmacht -
power of attorney
[Zahn, Bank- & Börsenwesen, Der Große Eichborn]
authority to act, proxy, procuration
[Der Große Eichborn]

And Schäfer has this to say:
Handlungsvollmacht f
(Re) limited commercial authority
(ie, zur Vornahme e–r bestimmten zu e–m HdlGewerbe gehörigen Art von Geschäften od zur Vornahme einzelner Geschäfte; granted to represent a firm or company, defined in §§ 54-58 HGB and § 164 ff BGB, narrower than Prokura and entered in the Commercial Register; may be general, partial, or specific)

Pouvoir, das; -s, -s <franz.> (österr. für Handlungsvollmacht)
(c) Dudenverlag

A search on "Verhandlungspouvoir" doesn't bring up that many hits - and all from Austrian sites. I'm a bit puzzled, though, as to how the 10% fits in - hopefully your context will make that clearer.
