"Checklist of Matters to Be Considered for the 2015 Annual Meeting and Reporting Season"

As our clients and friends once again embark on preparations for their 2015 annual meeting and reporting season, we have compiled a checklist of the corporate governance, executive compensation and disclosure matters that we believe should be considered. Unlike in recent years, there are no new U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) corporate governance, executive compensation or disclosure rules that will specifically impact the season. But there are a number of key areas of focus that we recommend companies consider and address.

The areas covered in our checklist will not apply equally to all companies. Whether a particular item applies and how a company should address it will depend on, among other things, the company’s business, shareholder base, and executive compensation plans and programs. We urge companies to consult with internal and external advisers as early in the process as possible in order to make the most appropriate decisions with respect to their corporate governance and executive compensation programs and related disclosures.

Please see full Checklist below for more information.
