Companies that plan on filing an updated peer group in their 2015 proxies should consider updating the peer groups currently on file with ISS and Glass Lewis (via Equilar):
- ISS's portal is open to companies with meeting dates between February 1 and September 15, 2015. (Companies with meetings after September 15 do not need to update their peer groups until the next data verification period in mid-2015). Companies should submit their changes via ISS's online tool here by December 11.
- Equilar's Market Peers portal (Market Peers are used in Equilar analyses as well as incorporated into Glass Lewis pay for performance assessments) is open to all companies that plan on filing an updated peer group in 2015. Companies should submit their changes via Equilar's online tool here by December 31; changes filed after that date will be incorporated in the July update.
