The SEC has adopted the first rules change to disclosure

requirements on executive compensation since 1992. This affects disclosure in proxy statements, annual reports and registration statements. The SEC’s goal is to provide more precise and clear reporting of top executives total compensation packages to shareholders.

Publicly traded companies are required to provide, in plain English, the full value in a single bottom line figure of the total executive compensation package, with more disclosure on the various components of the package, including post termination arrangements.
