Nov 04, 2022

In October 2022, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted rules to require securities exchanges to adopt listing standards that require issuers to develop and implement a policy providing for the recovery of erroneously awarded incentive-based compensation received by current or former executive officers.

The final rules require a listed issuer to file the policy as an exhibit to its annual report and to include disclosures related to its recovery policy and recovery analysis where a recovery is triggered. The Commission proposed compensation recovery rules in 2015 and reopened the comment period on the proposal in October 2021 and again in June 2022.
