The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently issued a broad concept release on the U.S. proxy system (the so-called "proxy plumbing release"), Release Nos. 34-62495, IA-3052, IC-29340. To determine whether to update the current proxy system rules for publicly held companies, the SEC is soliciting comments on three major areas:
*accuracy, transparency and efficiency of the voting process;
*communications and shareholder participation; and
*the relationship between voting power and economic interest, including whether the current disclosure requirements provide investors with sufficient information on this issue.
Comments should be received by the SEC no later than October 20, 2010.
