On November 5, 2018, ISS announced that it will soon open its peer group submission period for companies having shareholder meetings between February 1, 2019, and September 15, 2019.
The ISS peer group submission period will run from Monday, November 19, 2018, at 9 am Eastern, through Friday, December 7, 2018, at 8 pm Eastern. Companies can submit peer groups using ISS Corporation Solutions’ (ICS) Governance Analytics platform.
If your company’s peer group changed from the one disclosed in your last proxy, you should give due consideration to providing the updated peer group to ISS during this period. Providing your company’s updated peer group will help ensure that ISS uses the correct peer group in its analysis of your next proxy.
