Equilar Releases New Shareholder Engagement Report

Preparing for investor meetings has never been easier or more accurate

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 3, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Equilar is announcing the release of its new Shareholder Engagement Report, adding to the company's suite of corporate governance data solutions. The Shareholder Engagement Report provides real-time data for thousands of public companies within the Equilar BoardEdge platform. Each report highlights key company data including everything from newly elected directors to board policies to executive pay, updated as soon as this information becomes publicly available.

"When investors prepare for engagement meetings with board members and corporate governance professionals, they are often forced to rely on out-of-date reports or extensive manual efforts combing through filings and company websites," said David Chun, Founder and CEO of Equilar. "With a click of a button, the Shareholder Engagement Report highlights potential governance issues in advance of engagement meetings."

With the Shareholder Engagement Report, proxy voting teams, executives and board members can be sure they are focusing their discussions on the most pressing issues. Created to help investors, executives and boards stay on the same page regarding corporate matters affecting shareholders, the Shareholder Engagement Report also has a useful application for media professionals, particuarly corporate news and company beat reporters who need the latest data on a particular company in response to breaking news such as a merger or acquisition, turnover among executive or board management, or shareholder proposal results.
