From September through December 2022, the SEC issued a series of highly consequential final rules in the executive and equity compensation area.

• Pay for Performance Disclosure: Final rules under Dodd-Frank Act Section 953(a) requiring disclosure of the relationship between executive compensation actually paid by a company and the company's financial performance, which are effective now!

• Compensation Clawbacks: Final rules under Dodd-Frank Act Section 954 requiring companies to adopt and disclose detailed and comprehensive compensation recovery policies.

• Rule 10b5-1 Trading Arrangements of Insiders: The SEC adopted final rules adding significant new conditions on the availability of the affirmative defense under Exchange Act Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, which will require action by companies and executives alike.

• Spring-loading and Bullet-dodging Awards: The SEC adopted final rules; we will discuss scope, required SEC reporting and best practices.

• Recent Changes to SEC Forms: Amendments to Forms 4 and 5, Form 144, and Form N-PX, and new Proxy Statement reporting requirements.

• New Stock Buyback Rules: The proposal would enhance transparency around stock repurchases, including by requiring daily reports of stock repurchases on a new Form SR and expanding the disclosure required regarding repurchases in periodic reports, including a requirement for use of Inline XBRL.
