The annual proxy for this personal care corporation had the following proposals:
- Proforma votes on directors, appointment of auditors, and “say-on-pay” advisory vote
Magni for proforma proposals:
- Directors – The board has a majority of independent directors and some have CEO/CFO experience with other companies. The compensation of directors is disclosed with a meaningful portion in equity where the equity has restrictions to align director incentives with long-term value creation. The compensation levels are set using a benchmarking process.
- Auditors – There appear to be no controversies with the financial statements of the company.
- “Say-on-pay” Advisory Vote – The shareholder engagement and peer group disclosures indicate good governance practices in executive compensation, though there should be better clarity regarding the criteria for the peer group.
