Act Now! Glass Lewis Opens Its Issuer Data Report Service Enrollment

On November 17, 2016, Glass Lewis opened enrollment for its 2017 Issuer Data Report (IDR) program.  This program will cover companies in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Norway and all EU countries on a first-come, first-served basis.  Space is limited, so the enrollment will close on the earlier of January 6, 2017, or as soon as the annual limit for each of the the markets is reached.

There is no charge for the IDR program, which enables public companies to see a data-only version of its Glass Lewis Proxy Paper report prior to Glass Lewis completing its analysis and recommendations relating to the company’s annual shareholder meeting.  The IDR allows companies to confirm the accuracy of the information used in Glass Lewis’ corporate governance analysis, including information relating to directors and board composition, governing documents, independent public auditor, compensation practices, summary compensation data and equity plans.  The IDR does not contain the Glass Lewis analysis or voting recommendations.

Enrolled companies will receive their IDR approximately three to four weeks prior to their shareholder meeting.  While Glass Lewis generally provides companies 48 hours to review the IDR, in some circumstances, Glass Lewis will limit the review time to 24 hours.  Companies can provide corrections to Glass Lewis, with the public documentation supporting such corrections.
