SEC Adopts Pay Versus Performance Disclosure Rule


On August 25, 2022, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) finally adopted a “pay versus performance” rule in accordance with a Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) mandate that requires SEC-reporting companies to disclose in a clear manner the relationship between executive compensation actually paid and the financial performance of the company. As adopted, the rule generally requires disclosure of five years of pay versus performance data in proxy and information statements in which executive compensation information is required to be included pursuant to Item 402 of SEC Regulation S-K.

Thus, the new rule will generally apply for the upcoming 2023 proxy season.
