New pay-for-performance standards issued by Intuitional Shareholder Services (ISS) are expected to result in a major increase in negative recommendations and, as a result, more failed SOP votes. At the same time, companies for the first time in 2012 will be reporting and discussing the results of their previous say-on-pay votes.
Richard Goeglein, chairman of the board at Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc., and a member of its executive and compensation committees, will moderate this discussion on the evolution of say-on-pay proxy disclosures and shareholder votes in 2012. Among the topics being covered are ISS voting recommendations for 2012 versus 2011; say-on-pay voting results for 2012 versus 2011; key factors in negative ISS voting recommendations and failed SOP votes; the influence of ISS in pass/fail rates; changes in what was disclosed and how; and disclose around pay for performance.
