The clock is ticking for companies to comply with the first Dodd-Frank requirement concerning executive compensation. When they start sending out their 2011 proxies this spring, companies must include an explanation of how top executive officers’ pay tracks with the company’s performance. Companies are free to use whatever calculations and formulas they want, since the Securities and Exchange Commission will not publish a rule setting out metrics for this disclosure until after 2011 proxies are mailed. But the choice is fraught with risks because Dodd-Frank also mandates that companies give shareholders a nonbinding “say on pay” resolution in 2011.
