SEC Publishes Proposed Regs on Exec Comp Disclosures

Filed under: Executive Compensation, SEC — Fuguerre @ 2:15 pm

The Securities Exchange Commission has published its proposed regulations on disclosures of executive compensation, related party transactions, director independence, and other corporate governance matters. [File No. S7-03-06]

The proposed compensation disclosure rules are intended to improve information reported about the compensation of named executive officers.

  • The Summary Compensation Table will include disclosure of a single figure for total compensation.
  • The compensation tables will be required to include all elements of compensation.
  • The detail provided by the compensation tables will be expanded.
  • Narrative discussion and analysis will be required.

More, much much more to come soon. 370 pages to pore through here, and so far I’ve only been through it one pass (although my copy is already littered with red scribblings)…

Ah well, at least the solitude gives me more time to be plodding through the proposed regs, at least for now. I’m sure by Monday evening, when I’m expecting the text will emerge through the Federal Register, I’ll have more than enough external traffic to be digesting on this. […]
