Equilar’s 2012 Top 25 Executive Compensation Survey Tops 1000 Companies

Executive Pay Survey Now the Largest and Most Comprehensive in the Industry

REDWOOD CITY, CA (January 10, 2013) – Equilar, the leader in executive compensation benchmarking and research, today announced a key milestone for its 2012 Top 25 Senior Officer Survey, as more than 1,000 companies have provided pay data for their senior executives, data not typically disclosed in public filings.

Equilar's Executive Compensation Survey data contains up-to-date information on executive salaries, bonuses, perquisites, stock grants, and short and long term equity incentives for dozens of positions within both public and private companies.

“From its modest beginnings in 2008, our executive compensation survey has steadily grown to encompass a larger and more diverse set of companies,” said David Chun, Equilar Founder and CEO. “Our reputation as a trusted and unbiased data compiler and provider means that firms can submit this sensitive and proprietary information with confidence and can, in turn, benefit from the results of the survey to benchmark key leadership positions.”

With overall survey participation numbers up by more than 30 percent and Fortune 500 participation up by more than 15 percent from 2011, Equilar’s Top 25 Survey has become one of the fastest growing compensation surveys in the world, and is the largest survey exclusively devoted to benchmarking executive pay. The 2012 release represents a broad range of industries including technology, media, metals and mining, energy, consumer products, banking and financial services, and healthcare.

Organizations can access compensation data for positions across the entire management team by subscribing to Equilar's Top 25 Survey. The survey data gives companies the ability to benchmark roles that have previously lacked comparative data, and is searchable by position, industry, market cap, region, and other criteria.
