This CLE webinar will provide employee benefits and corporate attorneys with an in-depth analysis of the challenges and planning considerations for executive compensation for a pre-IPO company. The panel will discuss long-term incentive plan design, shareholder considerations, IPO equity awards, change-in-control, severance, board compensation, and other key executive compensation considerations for pre-IPO companies.

Description

Counsel to companies preparing for an IPO face significant compensation-related issues. The approach in executive compensation design for a public company is different from a private company. Executive compensation in public companies is highly scrutinized and must adhere to various legal standards to avoid any shareholder disputes and litigation.

Key issues to consider for an executive compensation plan of a pre-IPO company are long term incentives, IPO equity awards, change-in-control, severance, and other significant areas of concern. Employee benefits and corporate attorneys must grasp the nuances of pre-IPO compensation design to ensure that such plans align with IPO requirements.

Listen as our panel discusses long-term incentive plan design, shareholder considerations, IPO equity awards, change-in-control, severance, board compensation, and other key executive compensation considerations for pre-IPO companies.
