Say On Pay: Planning & Tactics for 2013
Tuesday, Jan 15 2013

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; including new required disclosures, the form and content of executive summaries, and the pros and cons of including supplementary disclosures around realized pay/realizable pay; 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; now that their two-year exemption has expired, how smaller reporting companies should prepare themselves for their first time running through the Say on Pay gauntlet; how say on pay is fostering increased dialog between companies and their investors- and the do's and don'ts of crafting an effective shareholder outreach/engagement program; 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.
