New regulations continue to keep us all hopping and can impact your company’s incentive program.  We will cover the following key recent topics in this webcast:

T+2 Settlement– We will have lively discussion on a bit of history behind T+2 (transaction date plus 2 days), what is coming with T+2 and what we are seeing companies do to plan for this change in shortening stock option settlement for Canadian and US registrants. 

EU Prospectus Regulations – The current EU Prospectus Directive has been in place for 17 years. It is clear that rather than encourage it has restricted EU companies raising capital in the market and kept them a step or two behind their European, Americas and Asia based competitors.   The impact has been felt keenly for those non-EU companies wishing to offer their shares to EU employees and has led to many restricting offers due to the costs and time involved.   There is good news on the horizon as the EU Commission has become acutely aware of the situation (pushed by reports and lobbying I have been involved in throughout that time) and proposed a new EU Prospectus Regulation (EUPR) with a wider employee share plan exemption.   This section will highlight the progress made on the EUPR and what companies should be thinking about for future share awards.

Truth in Negotiating with Regulators This section will highlight the ramifications of non-compliance based on the laws in various countries and our speaker will share case studies where negotiations ended favorably and provide you with a jump start of what you need to know before you need to know it!
