Equilar and NASDAQ are pleased to announce a new educational program for executives and board members of companies that have gone public in the last two years or are planning to go public in the next year.
There are many issues to address during an initial public offering, and often the impending governance requirements take a back seat. Yet boards must be prepared to operate in a very different environment and a new world of shareholder expectations—often diverse or sometimes conflicting expectations.
Proxy voting has grown increasingly complex, and effective governance practices can be the deciding factor of success or failure as a public company. Boards must evolve their practices accordingly.
The goal of this event is to provide participants valuable insights to objectively evaluate their board structure and executive compensation practices, as well as the tools needed to ensure constructive interaction with key shareholders and proxy advisors.
