In this unique article, you will learn the findings of Equilar’s annual review of the proxy statements and CD&A’s of companies in Equilar 100, (the top 100 US.-listed companies by revenue over the past five years) and what is driving these trends.
This is particularly relevant as we enter a proxy season marked by:
Recently enacted SEC “Universal Proxy” requirement which may make board election proxy contests easier to wage and more effective New “Pay versus Performance” (PvP) rule which mandates new, standardized and data-tagged CEO and NEO pay disclosures, and Looming SEC climate disclosure rule-making.
Did you know that 80.4% of these companies included a proxy summary?
Or that 96.9% of these companies discussed their ESG policies in their proxies, up from just 18.9% in 2017?
