October 2015 Client Alert

In July 2015, the SEC proposed new Exchange Act Rule 10D-1 to require national securities exchanges (NYSE, Nasdaq) to adopt listing rules that require listed companies to adopt and disclose clawback policies. These policies must be designed to recover incentive-based executive compensation from current and past executive officers that was based on financial statements that are subsequently restated. The proposed rule is the final in a series of many executive compensation rules mandated by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The SEC believes that the proposed rule will “result in increased accountability and greater focus on the quality of financial reporting, which will benefit investors and the markets.” To read the Client Alert, click here.
