Presented by:

In this two-hour live webcast, Equity Methods’ David Outlaw joins Nora McCord of Steven Hall & Partners, Ken Laverriere of Shearman & Sterling, and Steve O’Byrne of Shareholder Value Advisors to review the SEC’s proposed pay vs. performance disclosure rule.

The proposed rule, which was released on April 29, 2015, aims to provide shareholders with more clarity on companies’ executive compensation relative to financial performance over a trailing five-year period. The proposal brings with it numerous benefits and challenges from a variety of perspectives, and this multidisciplinary panel will explore these details from a legal, technical, and governance viewpoint.

Key topics include:

  • Overview of the pay-for-performance disclosure
  • The Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) requirement
  • The pay-for-performance table
  • Requirements for the disclosure rule
  • Determining “executive compensation actually paid”
  • The Paperwork Reduction Act
  • Reporting requirements
  • Total shareholder return (TSR)
  • Covered SEC documents and issuers
  • Transitional disclosure and new issuer relief
  • Calculating actual compensation and cumulative TSR
  • Best practices in reporting and compliance
