Semler Brossy’s Seamus O’Toole was featured in two recent Equilar reports about 2016 Director and Executive Stock Ownership Guidelines.

The 2016 Executive Stock Ownership Guidelines report states: “While the percentage of Fortune 100 companies that disclose ownership guidelines or holding requirements in any form decreased from 89.6 percent to 87.6 percent over the past three years, the number of companies who implement both ownership guidelines and holding requirements has increased. In 2012, 50 percent of Fortune 100 companies detailed both types, and that figure grew to 60.8 percent in 2014. Accordingly, the number of companies that only implement holding requirements or ownership guidelines exclusive of the other decreased over the last few years.”

“When used effectively, ownership policies—including ownership guidelines and holding requirements—can help mitigate risk, signal to shareholders a commitment to the stock, and enhance alignment with shareholders,” said Seamus O’Toole, Managing Director, Semler Brossy Consulting Group.
