Event Synopsis:

The form and amount of equity-based compensation awarded to public company executives is a highly publicized and controversial topic. A clear decline in stock option grants has occurred in favor of performance-based long-term incentive plans (“LTIPs”). This can be attributed to a number of factors, including mandatory expensing of stock options, increased pressure by shareholder advisory groups to grant performance-based awards, and the perception that stock options may induce unnecessary risk taking. Designing an effective and aligned performance-based LTIP is a complex and time-consuming undertaking, and raises a number of governance issues and risks for companies and Boards.

The panel will discuss the following issues:

- Insights from Grant Thornton’s examination of over 300 plans implemented by
about 100 S&P 500 companies from 2007 to 2012, including how did the LTIPs pay out as compared to shareholder return? How did this compare to compensation realizable from time-vested restricted stock or stock option? Which plans worked best: for example, financial-based plans vs. plans based on a relative return (“RTSR”) metric? How to consider capital markets characteristics in determining the right mix of long-term incentives.

- Institutional shareholders and the leading proxy advisory services view of long-term incentive plans.
- The changing role of Compensation Committees in developing performance-based long-term incentive plans
- New litigation risks related to executive compensation, say-on-pay, and stock-incentive plans
