Run Rate

Yule Logs and Burn Rates!

It is that time of year again when folks are either frantically trying to finish things up before the holidays hit or year-end.  To add to the pandemonium (or usual stress levels this time of year), ISS this morning released its Burn Rate Benchmarks for 2017.  These benchmark rates will apply to companies with meeting on or after February 1, 2017.

As in the past, below is a 2017 Burn Rate Calculator that I programmed to help folks figure out what their Burn Rate might be under these new benchmarks. You will have to have an estimate of your volatility and information about your equity grants (or, for performance-based awards, shares earned, assuming your disclosures are up to ISS-snuff – see ISS’ Equity Compensation Plan FAQs #19) over the past 3 years.

New 2014 Burn Rate Calculator Posted

Since ISS released its updated Burn Rate Caps table for 2014 on December 19, 2013, I have updated the Burn Rate Calculator to reflect the caps for 2014.  The calculator will enable you to calculate your ISS burn rate and traditional run rate for 2014 with just a few inputs.  The Burn Rate Calculator is kept under Reference Materials / Excel Tools and can be accessed at:
