Executive compensation: French companies get ready for Sapin II law

10 January 2017 Articles

Next spring, during the 2017 proxy season, all French listed companies will vote on their executive compensation policy.
The Sapin II law, in fact, introduced a binding vote by the shareholders.
"Although transparency standards on this are quite high already in France, companies will have to convince investors of the appropriateness of the compensation structure, the allocation between fixed, short-term variable and the long-term variable and all other payment methods." comments Louis Barbier on Les Echos. According to him, some compensation committees may decide to give up before finding relevant reasons.
