View Client Update
As U.S. public companies and their compensation committees assess their 2017 compensation programs and prepare their proxies, there are several key matters to consider.
Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) has released its updated FAQs regarding U.S. public companies’ executive compensation practices for 2017, including a new “relative pay and financial performance assessment” for Russell 3000E Index companies, an updated list of “problematic pay practices,” and commentary on its voting positions, among other updates.
Key areas to pay attention to this year include the need for many issuers to hold a say-on-pay frequency vote, considerations related to non employee director compensation approvals, review of confidentiality and non-disparagement clauses, upcoming SEC requirements (including CEO pay ratio disclosure) and the impact of changes to the regulatory environment under the new Trump Administration.
