Mergers & Acquisitions/Contests:
Our M&A experts have analyzed thousands of proposed mergers and proxy contests, assessing transaction process and structures to ensure the best outcome for shareholders.
Boards of Directors: We examine the actions of the board to ensure the directors have acted in a manner that protects and grows shareholder value. Our reports provide extensive data about the directors, including our assessment of their experience and independence.
Executive Compensation: The proprietary Pay-for-Performance model deployed by our compensation team is unique, featuring an exclusive partnership to incorporate Equilar’s market-based peers. In analyzing Say-on-Pay proposals and equity-based compensation plans, we perform both quantitative and qualitative reviews to understand the context of equity value creation compared to each company’s peer group.
Shareholder Proposals and E&S Issues: Our dedicated ESG Research Group provides sophisticated, nuanced analysis of shareholder proposals and is a valuable resource for clients throughout the year, not just proxy season. The balanced analysis lays out company and proponent positions to give a complete perspective.
