The SEC’s Executive Compensation Proposals

In this podcast, Lisa Kunkle, a Partner of Jones Day, provides some gloss on the portions of the SEC’s recent executive compensation proposals that could implicate M&A, including:

– How do the SEC’s proposals deal with COC and termination payments?
– What are possible areas where commentators will focus?
– What are good examples already out there where companies have fully disclosed potential COC or termination payments to executive officers?
– What other modifications might need to be made to change in control agreements and deferred compensation plans as a result of 409A?
