Stock Compensation Under the Magnifying Glass

Presented by: Takis Makridis Boxian Kolb

Stock compensation is coming under the magnifying glass from multiple vantage points in response to investors, analysts, and governance groups pressing for more detailed reporting. To provide clarity, both the FASB and SEC have been developing new rules and disclosure frameworks to equip users of corporate reporting with more granular information.

In this webcast, we’ll explore various tailwinds prompting expanded disclosure and scrutiny of stock compensation. Then, we’ll pivot and look at how leading companies are becoming more agile in how they analyze and report stock compensation both internally and externally. We’ll discuss:

  • FASB and SEC trends driving more disclosure granularity
  • Investor and market pressures that highlight stock-based compensation expense and dilution
  • Accounting standard updates on income statement disaggregation and segment reporting, with a focus on why human capital costs will come further under the spotlight
  • SEC rule-making that continues the trend of the proxy becoming a more quantitative and risk-based document
  • Analytics that companies can run internally to better understand the flows and changes in stock compensation amounts
  • How visualization can enhance communication with the C-suite

Find out how this shift impacts internal and external reporting and what leading companies can do to stay ahead of the curve.
