ISS & Glass Lewis Peer Group Updates

The semiannual ISS and Glass Lewis peer group update processes is open. This process is designed to allow companies to inform the two governance advisories of any peer group changes that will be disclosed in the next proxy filings. This helps ensure the most up-to-date peer group information is available for their pay-for-performance assessments.

For ISS, North American companies with annual meetings between September 16, 2017 and January 31, 2018 have until 8pm EDT on July 21, 2017 to submit their updated peer groups. Please click on this link under the My Company menu item to do so.

Russell 3000 and Canadian TSX companies that file proxies between June 15, 2017 and January 14, 2018 have until July 14, 2017 to submit their updated peer group through Equilar’s peer group portal for Glass Lewis analysis.

This action is purely voluntary, but a worthwhile process in the event of peer group amendments.
