New Report: Political Spending, Say on Pay, and Other Key Issues to Watch in the 2013 Proxy Season

| No Comments


As the 2013 proxy season kicks off--most U.S. public companies will hold their annual shareholder meetings between April and June--the Manhattan Institute is releasing its third annual proxy season preview in a series of reports and findings tracking shareholder proposal trends. Using vote results from the Manhattan Institute's unique, publicly available database that tracks shareholder proposals in real time, James Copland, director of the Manhattan Institute's Center for Legal Policy, identifies what hot button issues to watch for in the 2013 proxy season, including ISS recommendations, and proposals on political spending, "Say-on-Pay", and board declassification.

The report employs new data on shareholder activism from the Proxy Monitor database, now expanded to include the largest 250 U.S. public companies, as ranked by Fortune Magazine, in addition to new survey data tracking proxy proposal information at these companies, conducted by the Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals at the Manhattan Institute's request.
