Here is a list of all company proposals for a sample size of 131 companies reviewed in 2018 across a broad group of industries. See the most common proposals and some unique ones. Note: Of the 131 companies, the average number of proposals was 3.8, which was nearly 0.9 lower than 2017. This was due to many companies having a once-every-3-years vote on frequency of advisory vote on executive comp in 2017.
The Big 3 still dominate – directors, accounting firm and advisory comp. Interestingly, 8% of companies still do not put their exec comp up for an advisory vote.
