SESSION I: Post Vest Holding Periods: The Intersection of Corporate Governance, Plan Design, and Financial Accounting
Presenter: Ryan Ross & Carly Sanfilipo - Radford
Session I Description:
The inclusion of post vest holdings period in time vested and performance vested restricted stock awards continues to increase in prevalence as employers strive to further align executive compensation programs with corporate governance best practices, and to facilitate compliance with regulatory requirements – such as the incentive compensation disgorgement provisions of Dodd-Frank. This session will provide an overview of the current corporate governance environment related to mandatory post vest holdings periods. The session will also outline competitive practice and prevalence of post vest hold periods. Finally, the session will discuss the financial accounting benefit and reduction in compensation expense that may be realized for awards that include mandatory post vest holding periods.
SESSION II: Pay Versus Performance: SEC Proposed Disclosure Rules
Presenter: Ryan Ross & Carly Sanfilipo - Radford
Session II Description: The concept of Pay Versus Performance isn’t new, although recently, the SEC has added to this changing landscape by proposing disclosure requirements under the Dodd-Frank Act that will require companies to disclose CEO and Named Executive Officer pay as well as relative Total Shareholder Return (TSR) performance, with a narrative on the relationship. Although the new disclosure rules are not final, there are some key differences from other disclosure requirements, such as the Summary Compensation Table. There are also added complexities, with a focus on “compensation actually paid” and market cap weighted TSR performance. Join our speakers as we discuss the details of the proposed rules, as well as major considerations and potential roadblocks. From the technical nuances of valuing vested equity awards to the narrative explaining the relationship of pay and performance, we will prepare you for at least one future obstacle in this ever-changing executive compensation landscape.
