Web Conference: "Executive Compensation Disclosure: Complying with the Proposed SEC Rules Change," featuring Charles D. Loring, CEBS, CCP, Senior Vice President and Director, Executive Compensation, Wachovia Corporation and Thomas Lehner, Policy Director, Business Roundtable.
In this Xtalks web conference on May 31, 2006, Charles Loring, from Wachovia and Thomas Lehner of the Business Roundtable will be discussing the proposed SEC Rules Change on executive compensation disclosure and the implications to financial reporting.
Xtalks is pleased to Executive Compensation Disclosure: Complying with the Proposed SEC Rules Change Web Conference. Registration is complimentary for qualified executives at: http://www.xtalks.com/execComp.ashx
The SEC has proposed the first rules change to disclosure requirements on executive compensation since 1992. This will affect disclosure in proxy statements, annual reports and registration statements. The SEC’s goal is to provide a more precise and clear reporting of the top executives total compensation package to shareholders.
Publicly traded companies will be required to provide, in plain English, the full value in a single bottom line figure of the total compensation package, with more disclosure on the various components of the package, including past termination arrangements.
Replacing the current Performance Graph and Compensation Committee Report, the new Compensation Discussion and Analysis section becomes a legal part of the proxy statement. The speakers will discuss the required disclosure information for this section, the affect on current and future proxy statements and the reorganized Summary Compensation Table.
Take away points include:
- How to meet the SEC’s expectations in compensation disclosures
- What should be done now, and in the future, to prepare organizations for compliance
- What are shareholders views and expectations?
- Requirements of the new disclosure tables
The web conference is sponsored by Kilpatrick Stockton, who will host a workshop following the keynote presentation and before the Q&A session. Registration is currently open at: http://www.xtalks.com/execComp.ashx
