GEO’s 2017 National Equity Compensation Forum
Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
Partner Eric Hosken and Associate Kyle Eastman will present “Long Term Incentive Design and the Corporate Life Cycle”. Each stage of the corporate life cycle presents unique strategic challenges. For companies in the growth stage, generating consumer demand and capturing market share is key. Meanwhile, mature companies must focus on developing efficiencies and maintaining return on existing investment. Long term incentives (LTI) help to align compensation with the achievement of these business objectives and should be tailored to optimize this alignment. Drawing from Compensation Advisory Partners (CAP) analysis on LTI design at the various corporate life cycle stages, this panel will share insights from the research on what LTI vehicles are generally considered best suited for each corporate life cycle stage and, more important, why they are best suited. Drilling down a bit further, the panel promises a lively discussion on the ever-popular performance based LTI, including a discussion of what performance metrics are generally considered best suited for each corporate life cycle stage and more.
