PRESENTED BY:

Ben Burney of Exequity

Ben will discuss the use of relative total shareholder return within long-term incentive plans across S&P 500 companies.

Traditionally, relative total shareholder return (RTSR) was used primarily by Energy and Utilities companies but today more than 50% of S&P 500 companies use RTSR in their long-term incentive plans. With RTSR prevalence at such a high level, we analyzed the key design elements in an effort to discern how RTSR is being implemented across these companies and whether the new entrants to the RTSR fold designed their plans similarly to the traditional Energy or Utilities companies.

Two years since issuing the proposed rule, after considering more than 285,000 comment letters, and in a contentious three to two vote, the SEC approved the final rule implementing the CEO pay ratio disclosure as mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act.  The rule requires disclosure of the ratio of median annual total compensation of all employees other than the CEO to the annual total compensation for the CEO.

Please join us in an open discussion of the final rule, including requirements of the rule, alternative methodologies for determining median annual total compensation, ratios we may see in the initial year of disclosure, and potential implications of the new disclosure
