REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2012) - Equilar, the leader in executive compensation data and research, today announced an expansion to the Equilar P4P Analytics application that includes the Glass Lewis Modeler, providing users the ability to simulate Glass Lewis grades and ISS concern levels in one place. When used together with Equilar's realizable pay analysis and ISS P4P simulation, the new Glass Lewis Modeler allows corporate issuers to anticipate potential Say on Pay concerns.
The Glass Lewis Modeler was developed by Equilar and Glass Lewis as part of the two companies' strategic alliance announced earlier this year. As part of the alliance, Equilar's executive compensation data and Equilar Market Peers™ have been incorporated into Glass Lewis' pay-for-performance analysis; Glass Lewis P4P grades are a key component of the leading proxy advisor's review of Say on Pay and director election proposals at U.S. public companies.
In addition, Equilar clients now have exclusive access to the Glass Lewis Modeler, which enables them to simulate Glass Lewis' pay-for-performance grades in preparation for annual shareholder meetings. Further, Equilar clients can now also access the Glass Lewis Proxy Paper™ research service via the Equilar platform, including vote recommendations for their proxies and those of their peers.
"The Glass Lewis Modeler allows companies to use peer, compensation and performance data to gain a deeper understanding of upcoming pay-for-performance grades," said Brian Sohmers, Equilar Executive Vice President of Products. "Companies can now estimate their Glass Lewis grades using the same compensation data and peer groups that Glass Lewis uses."
