Corporate and Securities Alert: “Say on Pay” Rules Proposed

less-

The SEC has released a rule proposal (“Proposal”) designed to implement provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act relating to shareholder approval of executive compensation and golden parachute compensation arrangements. We believe the final rules will closely track the Proposal, so issuers preparing proxy statements now should draft with the Proposal in mind. Proxy statements for meetings on or after January 21, 2011 are affected.
