  • Governance Fundamentals: Understanding Your Company's Mechanics and Benchmarking
    In recent years, companies have faced increasing pressure on governance issues beyond majority voting, such as the advent of proxy access and enhanced scrutiny on board composition, including director tenure, over-boarding, and diversity, particularly in light of California's legislation mandating gender diversity. In addition, complex activist investor financial strategies have made it prudent for companies to adopt mandated disclosure around derivative instruments and for board nominees to express an intent to serve a full term and disclose all relevant compensatory arrangements. Conversely, many companies have sought to designate Delaware as the exclusive forum for stockholder dispute resolution, but Delaware has vetoed a 'loser pays' system. What is the "right" mix of governance features, particularly for companies with a single class of common stock? And on which issues do board members really need to be focused? Join us for a lively, practical discussion on governance features and stockholder engagement. For more information, please visit the event website.
