Votes of the Week: Guess? and Aéropostale

Votes of the Week: Guess? and AéropostaleZoom inDownload PDF

Our “Vote of the Week” features Guess? and Aéropostale. The two companies each failed in 2014 with Guess?, a triennial Say on Pay company,  receiving 34% support in 2014 after receiving 68% support in 2011, and Aéropostale receiving 36% support in 2014 after receiving 99% support in 2013.  Both companies recently entered into new employment agreements with their respective CEOs which provide for large equity awards despite negative long-term shareholder returns.  These commonalities in pay and performance likely led to similar vote outcomes.
