SH&P Speaker: Joseph Sorrentino

On April 29, 2015, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) voted to propose new rules surrounding public company disclosure of the relationship between executive compensation and company performance. Requirements of these rules include disclosing executives’ “actual pay” for a period of up to five years and incorporating peer group data. The SEC expects that these new rules will make it easier for investors to judge whether executive pay and company performance are in alignment.

While the alignment of pay and performance has been much discussed by institutional investors and governance activists over recent years, there has been no consensus on methods for measuring compensation or performance and much controversy on how to best incentivize executives. Will the new disclosure rules better assist investors in evaluating executive pay packages? Will they result in improved alignment of pay and performance? Or will the rules incentivize executives to pursue shorter-term performance boosting measures? Are they an unnecessary complication and expense for public companies?

Join us as we host a conversation on this important and timely topic.
