Executive Compensation and the Initial Public Offering

June 24, 2010 – June 29, 2010

Long before an initial public offering (IPO), companies should begin to approach executive compensation through the lens of a public company. The IPO registration statement will contain detailed executive compensation information, including past compensation data, disclosure about compensation philosophies and policies and how the company's compensation program aligns with those philosophies. To that end, it is important for companies to formalize their compensation practices and policies in advance of an IPO.

In this webinar, the presenters will discuss important executive compensation issues companies should consider when contemplating an IPO, including "best practices" that will help ensure a smooth transition from private company to publicly traded issuer. The presenters will also touch on important tax and accounting implications of executive compensation decisions.
