Final SEC Pay Versus Performance Rule: New Expanded Executive Compensation Disclosures for 2023
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will examine the SEC's final rule for pay versus performance disclosures, including the public companies affected by the rule and the timeline for compliance. The panel will also discuss the steps companies should take now to be able to prepare for the new expanded disclosures to be required in the 2023 proxy season.
- Historical background on pay vs. performance: Section 953(a) of Dodd-Frank
- Changes made in final 2022 regs from 2015 proposed regs
- New tabular disclosures
- Describing the relationship between pay and performance
- Calculating compensation actually paid
- Phase in requirements for large companies
- Small company disclosures
- Steps reporting companies should take now
The panel will review these and other important issues:
- What is the existing pay vs. performance disclosure regime, and what are its shortcomings?
- How does the new rule change the approaches to calculating executive compensation and evaluating performance?
- To what extent do the disclosure obligations vary depending on the size of a company?
- Which disclosures must be included in the proxy statement? In SEC filings?
