The 2017 Proxy Season: Will it Be “Substantially” Similar to 2016?

This report, based on Bloomberg Law data, outlines developments related to the SEC’s Rule 14a-8 no-action letter process, and how that may affect proxy access for shareholders in the coming year. Some of the key findings include:

  • Proxy access has been the most common shareholder proposal topic addressed by companies in 2016.
  • Of the 231 requests for relief submitted through mid-September, the top five shareholder proposal topics were:
    • Proxy Access Bylaws
    • Environmental Issues
    • Human Rights/Social Issues
    • Executive Compensation
    • Risk Management

As proxy access will remain at the top of the shareholder proposal agenda for the 2017 season, this special report should be considered essential intelligence to any corporate counsel. Register today for your complimentary copy.
