We are pleased to present our fourth study of aggregate share-based compensation. This report covers the three-year period from 2017 to 2019, and includes the following:

  • Company-wide annual grant rates, measured based on annual share usage and fair value transfer (“FVT”).
  • Overhang, measured based on potential share dilution as well as the fair value of outstanding grants.
  • Frequency and prevalence of long-term incentive plan share requests.
  • Allocation of long-term incentive pools to the CEO and other proxy officers (“Top 5”).

Our research focused on 300 companies spread across five industry groups.
