Corporate Communicator - Winter 2014
2014 Annual Meeting Season
Dear clients and friends,
We present to you our traditional year-end issue of Snell & Wilmer’s Corporate Communicator to help you prepare for the upcoming annual report and proxy season. This issue highlights SEC reporting and corporate governance considerations that will be important this annual meeting season as well as in the upcoming year. In this issue, we include our customary articles on recent SEC, NYSE/NASDAQ and other corporate law developments. ISS, Glass Lewis and other proxy advisory firms continue to have increasing influence on public companies’ corporate governance policies, executive pay and the related disclosures about these matters, and this issue discusses the latest policy updates that will take effect in the 2014 proxy season. Finally, we are including a short article about the pending United States Supreme Court case Halliburton Co. v. Erica P. John Fund, Inc. Depending on how the Court rules, this case could have a profound impact on securities class action and similar litigation.
