Gearing Up for the Proxy Season: 13 Tips to Get You Started

Like it or not, the proxy season is now upon us, and this White & Case memo highlights the Top 13 considerations for 2022 annual meeting proxy statements. Not surprisingly, taking the number one spot on this Top 13 list is a focus on board diversity disclosure. Other suggested areas to consider when preparing your proxy statement are disclosing a board skills matrix, focusing on board risk oversight disclosure, reviewing board considerations for independence, considering overboarding policies, revisiting human capital, CEO pay ratio, ESG, perquisites and related party transaction disclosures, addressing negative Say-on-Pay votes and considering basic proxy housekeeping items.
