Do you understand how your company's executive compensation packages are impacted by the say on pay, recent corporate governance changes, and new SEC disclosure rules?
Executive pay at publicly-traded companies has been under intense scrutiny by the media, the federal government, and investors. The SEC has recently announced new proxy disclosure requirements and corporate governance changes that, when finalized, will have a significant effect upon public company executive pay practices. Congress is poised to give shareholders an advisory vote on executive compensation, and will likely impose other restrictions on pay practices. Many of these changes will affect pay practices in 2009 and the disclosure of those practices in 2010. Companies must begin now to assess the impact of these changes and develop appropriate responses.
Join a panel of Seyfarth Shaw attorneys to learn about:
- Executive pay principles from the Obama administration
- How a corporation's compensation policies affect executive risk taking
- How shareholder access to the proxy and elimination of broker voting for directors impacts executive pay
- Changes to the way equity awards are reported in the proxy tables
- Enhanced disclosure of compensation consultant independence and conflicts of interest
- Expanded disclosure of how compensation is set for non-executives
- Shareholder say on pay legislation and the SEC's codification of say on pay for TARP companies
- Best practices and next steps
Who Should Attend:
- General Counsel
- Corporate and Securities Counsel
- HR, benefits, and legal personnel who work on executive compensation or proxy disclosure matters
- Members of Boards of Directors
This presentation may also be of interest to investors in public companies, private financial institutions that are TARP recipients, and others interested in this area.
