Hailed as "the bible for securities lawyers" by Fortune, Public Company Deskbook: Sarbanes-Oxley and Public Governance Requirements reflects today’s more intense federal focus on corporate governance, by offering expanded discussion of the subject, including the heated issue of executive compensation.
Public Company Deskbook is your one-stop center of expert counsel on how to deal effectively with wide-ranging federal corporate governance requirements, as well as imminent public company regulations in the wake of the global economic meltdown. The Deskbook covers shareholder activism, including the rights of shareholders to call annual meetings, the shareholder proposal process (and relevant exclusions), annual review of common proposals and outcomes, and the shareholder nomination process.
In addition, the Deskbook also offers new chapters on executive and director compensation disclosure, equity plan approval, and related party disclosure. You’ll also find important insight into restrictions on auditors, attorneys’ professional responsibilities, and employee whistleblower protections.
Updated annually or as needed, Public Company Deskbook: Sarbanes-Oxley and Public Governance Requirements is an indispensable resource for securities practitioners, compliance officers, directors, officers, accountants, auditors, and research analysts, and an important reference for securities regulators.
