Equity Compensation

Strategic compensation planning.

As SEC rules and regulations continually change, executive compensation plans are one of the most highly scrutinized proxy and governance issues in today’s business environment. Alliance has extensive experience working with companies seeking shareholder approval of executive compensation plans.  We base our analysis on research of the voting guidelines of institutional investors and our ability to predict the ISS and Glass Lewis vote recommendations based on plan data.  Institutional investors and the proxy advisory firms continue to oppose equity plans that are too costly or too dilutive to shareholders, so companies must be careful when drafting compensation plans and analyzing how to secure the votes necessary to win.

Whether Alliance needs to analyze your current plan or help design new plans to meet your goals, our Governance Advisory Group has the knowledge and experience to develop a plan that fits your needs and budget. These experts will help you create a shareholder friendly equity compensation plan to make your employees and shareholders feel personally invested in the company and its long-term success.

Our Equity Plan Analysis provides:

  • Strategy and goal planning
  • Analyzing shareholder base and proxy voting policies when designing equity plans
  • Identifying primary vote drivers that institutional investors will use in making voting decisions, such as shareholder value transfer, voting power dilution, burn rate and other plan provisions
  • Providing guidance on compensation methodology used by ISS
  • Having certified analysts run the ISS Compass modeling platform
