Pay Vs. Performance: Tackling Your Disclosures

The SEC’s newly adopted “pay vs. performance” disclosure rules are one of the most significant changes to executive compensation disclosure in the past decade. The new disclosures will require multiple years of information and new calculations for equity awards – and they’re required in 2023 proxy statements!

On Thursday, November 10th from 1-4pm ET, join us for a special session on “Tackling Your Pay Vs. Performance Disclosures” – featuring Compensia’s Mark Borges, Morrison Foerster’s Dave Lynn, WilmerHale’s Meredith Cross, Sidley’s Sonia Barros, SGP’s Rob Main, Fenwick’s Liz Gartland, Gibson Dunn’s Ron Mueller, and more.

This is a 3-part, 3-hour special session that will cover:

1. Navigating Interpretive Issues – we are already getting lots of questions in our Q&A forum about how to apply the new rules, and we know that new issues are arising daily. We’ll be sharing practical guidance and any SEC updates that you need to know – including what you’ll need to tell your board and executives.

2. Big Picture Impact – how will the disclosure mandate affect say-on-pay models and shareholder engagements? This session will provide context and pointers for bolstering executive compensation & compensation committee support during proxy season.

3. Key Learnings From Our Sample – attendees of this event will get first access to our sample disclosures, prepared by Mark Borges and Dave Lynn. Hear “lessons learned” from their drafting effort that will guide you through your own process and jumpstart your disclosures.

This event is available at a reduced rate of only $295 for anyone who is already a member or who is signed up to attend our “Proxy Disclosure & 19th Annual Executive Compensation Conferences” on October 12th – 14th – where we’ll be setting the stage with key takeaways from the pay vs. performance rule and the steps that you need to take now to be ready to comply. Register for the “special session” here for the member rate (or, if you are not a member but you are signed up for our “Proxy Disclosure & 19th Annual Executive Compensation Conferences,” contact for the special rate).

For non-members, the cost to attend is $595. If you’re not yet a member of, try a no-risk trial now. We’ll be continuing to add practical guidance on this topic to as disclosure hurdles & consequences come to light – such as this great podcast that Dave already taped with Gibson Dunn’s Ron Mueller about “first impressions” of the rule, emerging interpretive issues, possible pitfalls, and more.

All that to say, a membership be an essential ongoing resource if you are involved with pay vs. performance.
