CEO Pay Ratio: Time to Prepare
As we approach 2017, the Dodd-Frank mandated CEO pay ratio should be on the minds of public company decision makers, as mandatory disclosure is approximately one year away. The CEO pay ratio rule, which was finalized on October 19, 2015, requires disclosure of the ratio of median annual total compensation of all employees other than the CEO to the annual total compensation of the CEO. As we approach mandatory disclosure in the 2018 proxy season, the process of preparing for the calculation of the ratio and communicating with all interested parties is nearing a critical time.
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.
