On November 28, 2018, Equilar announced that its 2019 peer submission window opened. The submission deadline is December 31, 2018. Companies have the opportunity to submit the peer companies that will be listed in a proxy to be filed between January 15, 2019, and July 15, 2019. This will help ensure that Equilar uses the correct company peers when constructing its MarketPeers for the company.

According to Equilar:

  • institutional investors use Equilar’s MarketPeers for independent validation of  company disclosed peer groups,
  • Glass Lewis uses Equilar’s MarketPeers algorithm to generate peer groups using in formulating Say on Pay recommendations for investors, and
  • The Pay for Performance (P4P) modeler in Equilar Insight’s Shareholder Engagement Center includes simulations for ISS and Glass Lewis P4P analyses based on the most recent peer group information.
