Say On Pay 2013: Planning & Tactics

Length: 2 hours 46 minutes

With universal say on pay votes now a familiar part of the annual meeting/compensation calendar, companies are internalizing the lessons of the past few years, analyzing recent developments, and planning for 2013.  Our experienced panel of practitioners – from the institutional investor, proxy advisory, compensation consulting and corporate governance fields – will share their perspectives and real-world experiences as they look at: best and emerging practices for CD & A’s; why peer group selection became a hot topic during 2012 and what companies should be taking into account when planning their peer groups for 2013; the metrics and screens that institutional investors and proxy advisory services used in determining the link between pay and performance in 2012 and possible changes for 2013; how smaller reporting companies should prepare themselves for their first time, now that their two-year exemption has expired; how say on pay is fostering increased dialog between companies and their investors; and whether say on pay continues on track to turn into “pay as I say” as some companies feel increasingly forced to craft compensation policies and practices that “toe the line” set by proxy advisory firms.
