On January 25, the Securities and Exchange Commission will hold an open meeting to discuss, among other matters, whether to adopt rules to implement Section 951 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (adding Section 14A to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934), which requires shareholder advisory votes (1) to approve the compensation of executives, a so-called “say-on-pay” vote and (2) as to the frequency of shareholder say-on-pay votes. Also required are expanded, tabular format disclosure of executive compensation in connection with mergers or similar transactions (golden parachutes) and a related separate advisory vote on golden parachutes in merger proxy statements. These requirements are effective for annual or special shareholder meetings occurring on or after January 21. The SEC had proposed rules under Section 14A on October 18, 2010.
