Intensifying scrutiny around board and executive pay practices, heightened focus on ESG issues, increased demand for talent and evolving accounting, regulatory and tax requirements create new and ongoing challenges. The BDO 600 Study examines board director compensation plans and pay levels of 600 middle market public companies, reviews the key components of pay packages and provides comparison by company size and industry (energy, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, real estate, retail and technology).
Here are a few key findings from the report, one of a two-part series (see the other one on CEO and CFO compensation):
- Director compensation rose by just over 2 percent in fiscal year 2020.
- Sixty-percent of directors’ total compensation is in equity, while 40 percent is in cash.
- Total equity pay rose by nearly 4 percent, while committee fees and retainers declined by just under 3 percent.
