Perspective

A few months ago I commented on the SEC’s new regulations for reporting executive compensation. The regulations were scheduled for rollout this spring with the 2006 Proxys. The expectation was that the new disclosure rules would significantly expand transparency, providing more information on the paychecks for top executives and expanding the number of executives who will be subject to compensation reporting. Well, according to a growing list of articles quoting compensation consultants, the result of the regulations is a mountain of indecipherable information. For example, a Sunday New York Times article this past weekend termed the new data as “transparent as mud.” Leave it to the Feds to overdo and over-complicate things. Instead of additional, better disclosure, all we have now is confusion and the need to hire more consultants just to interpret the data.
