Corporate Governance Outlook 2019, an Equilar publication, analyzed the proxy statements and shareholder voting results for Equilar 500 companies from 2014 to 2018. The Equilar 500 tracks the 500 largest, by reported revenue, U.S.-headquartered companies trading on one of the major U.S. stock exchanges (NYSE, Nasdaq or NYSE MKT), adjusted to approximate the industry sector mix of similar large-cap indices. The report identifies trends in compensation and corporate governance disclosure practices including those that pertain to shareholder engagement policies, Say on Pay, the CEO Pay Ratio, board evaluation and more. Donnelly Financial Solutions (DFIN) and Hogan Lovells offered independent commentary to provide context and color on companies’ approach to governance issues and shareholder engagement.
