Here Comes the Sun: The SEC’s New Executive Pay Proposals

Wednesday, March 1, 2006

A 90-minute TeleConference/Live Audio Webcast

1:00-2:30 pm ET / 12:00-1:30 pm CT / 11:00 am-12:30 pm MT / 10:00 am-11:30 am PT

In January, the SEC proposed the first major revisions to its executive compensation disclosure rules in 14 years. If adopted, the proposals would make dramatic changes to both the form and content of the required disclosure that public companies must provide about their executive pay practices and decisions. This teleconference will discuss the proposals, their implications for disclosure during the 2006 proxy season and beyond, and how the new disclosure system will mesh with the recent changes to the accounting treatment of equity compensation and the tax treatment of nonqualified deferred compensation under section 409A. The program will also address the reaction of the investor community to the proposals and how they are likely to influence the shareholder agenda in the future.  Topics covered will include:

  • What is the SEC proposing?    
  • How will these new proposed rules work with the 409A tax regulations?
  • How are shareholders going to react?
