SEC Proposes Revisions to Proxy Disclosures on Compensation and Corporate Governance

The SEC proposed a set of rule revisions intended to improve the disclosure provided to shareholders of public companies regarding compensation and corporate governance matters in proxy and information statements.  They include information about:

  • The relationship of a company's overall compensation policies to risk.
  • The qualifications of directors, executive officers and nominees.
  • Company leadership structure.
  • Potential conflicts of interests of compensation consultants.

In addition, the proposals are aimed to improve the reporting of annual stock and option awards to company executives and directors as well as to require quicker reporting of election results. The Commission also proposed amendments to the proxy rules intended to clarify how they operate.
