As You Sow published its annual report on the Top 100 Overpaid CEOs among S&P 500 companies on February 21, 2019. As you might expect, the report details those companies who in As You Sow’s view have overpaid CEOs.
Key findings of the report:
- Large institutional shareholders are opposing more CEO Pay packages by voting Against Say-on-Pay votes
- The number of companies where a large number of shares were voted Against the CEO pay package has increased
- Companies that As You Sow’s first report 5 years ago identified as Overpayers have underperformed the S&P 500
The report also includes many helpful charts and graphs looking at institutional shareholders and how they have reacted to CEO pay and their votes against CEO pay packages.
