141 Russell 300 companies have held Say on Pay votes thus far in 2019, and the average vote support has been 91.6%. Only two companies (1.4%) have failed Say on Pay so far this year: Nuance Communications and PTC Inc. This report also tracks Equity Proposal and Director Election vote results, and our upcoming reports will track CEO Pay Ratio disclosure and ESG vote results.
